Hey there forum, I'm currently the midst of repairing my beloved Aprilia after a car decided to effectively run me off the road just over a fortnight ago. *waves fist angrily* I just had some brief questions I wanted to ask.
Seeing as the original fairings were much too expensive to obtain I decided to purchase a set of the Tyga GP250 fairings of which I'm in the midst of installing.
However, it seems apparent that at some point in my bike's past one of the owners has decided to install an aftermarket rear shock canister. (Not certain as to what the correct term for it is) The problem with this is that the valve connecting to the banjo bolt wasn't done up at a particularly nice angle, thus not leaving enough space to slide it over the mount and any other angle seems to cause kinks to develop in the hose.
Here's the picture from the Tyga website of how it's supposed to sit.
Would it be safe to loosen the bolt just enough to allow the valve to be rotated? Or is this a bad idea?
Also, does anyone know of some axle sliders that could be installed on the RS250? or any reason why I should refrain from installing them?
