    lol no way it's only 20 feet x 20 feet! small, but big enough for me!


    the 3d printer is on the same table as the white cylinder thing. the white cylinder thing is the heater/dehydrator for my filaments. if you don't dry them before printing you can't successfully print nylon and other high performance filaments.

    if you look just behind the dehydrator you will see the vertical chassis of the printer, and it's power supply/ control box. i'll get a get photo when i get home today.

    Get your confidence back with Aprilia.

    caution: the use of motorcycles may be habit forming. side effects include purchasing multiple examples of the same bike, in different states of tune, different years, or different models altogether. some motorcycles may be not running when purchased. some parts are no longer available. there are rare instances where aprilias are bought over the internet and upon arrival, they are not as were originally disclosed. there is a small group of people who cannot handle two stroke engines and motorcycle maintenance. if this is the case, you may not be a candidate for Aprilia RS250's.

    rear BST with sprocket = 10.8 lbs
    stock wheel with sprocket = 15.6 lbs

    no brake rotors attached.


    i took those little rear plates off, and while they are a little bit flimsy with the rear wheel not attached, once you tighten the rear axle, everything is solid as can be. i will look into reversing the bolts and making them low profile and seeing whether i like it with how much clearance it would have...

    well, i found out why my forks were taking so long...

    the platers accidentally left the tubes in the chemical strip process for too long and ruined my tubes, they're pitted beyond repair.

    so, they had to order a brand new set of fork tubes for me.

    at this point, it would have been cheaper just going the route of custom triple clamps and full ohlins RT forks.


    bike probably won't be ready for the show i was planning on attending either.

    pffffft

    well, first update,

    after FIVE MONTHS I finally got the forks back this afternoon and something is obviously not right.

    1) there's an inch or so of almost free play in the very top travel of the forks. something doesn't feel right.
    2) the spindles were not coated even though i paid for them to be done, and was never notified by konflict that they were NOT going to coat them
    3) the nitride color on the fork tubes is not nearly pronounced, not at all like the demo photos they have on their site.
    4) i received no information at all on what oil was installed, what preload is set to, what the oil level is set to, etc. so i have no idea what i'm at.

    so now, they're going off to seattle, to have a personal friend go over them to make sure at least the ohlins nix30 kit is installed correctly..




    to be continued...
