This sounds good. Do you advise adding more threading and length on the nut?

I would suggest you pick material as you would probably know best. I have no idea and trust your expertise.

I could make the stem and nut out of 7075, which should add considerable strength to the assembly....but is it necessary? Let me know what you all would prefer...I would need to cancel the order for the KTM parts.
