Yeah, I took a little off the back of the caliper to give it clearance. I liked how it was sitting on the rotor the way we had it, so I just figured leave the spacing alone and take care of the rubbing. Thankfully it wasn't rubbing too much in the first place or I would have ended up on my head and be needing a new front rim

Seriously though, thanks for all your help. I'm fucking pumped to get out and ride.

Out as I am waiting for FBI to get my forks to me. I sent them out to get refreshed over the winter and after about 40 laps at Shawano during a test day they are pouring fork fluid out. If I don't get them back in time I will miss the race at Road America. Pretty fucking pissed right now. I am so close to ordering a set of slicks for teh Aprilia and just race that at RA.

Get a set of yz forks for back up!, ive got a primo set off my 2008 yz450, if you want to borrow them for the race your more than welcome too - fresh fluid less than 5 hrs on fluid - stock length - if you want to buy them $400 theyre yours!

Just buy new shit that actually doesnt break and fuckin leak - Ohlins forks = over priced leaking pos Vs revalved stock forks - finish races without leaking and dont have to be sent to some eastern block country to be repaired for 3 months - Priceless!

i just emailed them im waiting for a response - that sucks - then again they might let us run from 6-9pm so we lose a hr - at that track 40 mins of ride time is like 70 laps which will wipe your ass out!
