The type of fasteners used will also plays a big part with composites ,
You will want maximin clamping with out over stressing so big washers to get a large clamp area ,

For starters you have one of the project Nav Towers
I am trying to make a hybrid Back plate for the 450 RFR (polycarbonate or PE with aluminium). The flexibility of PC and PE is very very helpful in this area of the bike and you can increase its rigidity by bracing it with aluminium.

Then you have the ''Lego'' switch which you have seen in CAD and we have already started hammering down Mk I to see how it performs during side impacts. The good thing is that even after a 200 kg impact the internals were still able to get to the end of the day. The other huge benefit is that you only need to change a couple of parts from the cartridge to get the unit back into shape. Will post destructive videos later in the week. We will get to the bottom of this

''Never Give Up ! ''

Till later,
D.

Hi D. Good to see there is more going on in this thread, was kinda stalled for a while, maybe with the Dakar coming up......

I found a site that had the details on making one way clutches with lego parts. That was the one thing that had stopped me from trying to make a lego fully functioning road book. Now I don't plan to make this a retail part or anything, actually &^$%s and giggles really. I reckon its possible so maybe for laughs sometime there will be a build sheet for that!!!!!

That is quite simple...

Actually I was thinking something along these lines for the transmission

Anyone know the size (and material) of the F2R drive orings? I need some replacements and would like to find a local source, if possible.

Bit of an aside, for the MD, I mentioned a while back I bought packages of O rings from McMaster, 50 of each. I only need a few. Anyone need any? My replacements have lasted a while and through the Reno Rally.

Smart to source them locally. Just so you know, they vary by model (RB730/A, RB730/B, and RB750) and roller. Your best bet is to measure your existing o-rings. Typical spec is Viton.

MD o-ring specs and instructions are here. I haven't done a writeup on the F2R yet.

We have a spares section if you can't find them in town.

Thanks, what is a good method of measuring, shy of having an oring cone?

I have a 730/A, BTW

You can get very close using calipers. You can put the o-ring on a funnel or neck of a bottle to simulate a measuring cone. Then measure OD. Thickness is easy. ID can be derived from there.

Tomaz from F2R has been great any time I've dealt with him... I reckon he would tell you if you asked!
