Did I do well guys or am I deluded into thinking this was a complete steal !!!

I had a very similar 550 a long, long time ago. Rocker rear brake was an absolute pain to set up so I got a Magura on there. Brings back memories!

Lovely bike mate, I have an 852 as well, mines got full Dx and a Ti Flextem bar combo.
What are the elastomers like on yours? I've just fitted brand new ones to mine but they are so hard they dont move :lol:
Been told they will soften in the warmer weather though :wink:

The elastomers seem ok at first glance but ive noticed that there is a little bit of play when you lift the back end !! i.e As if the elastomers were a bit squashed and not taking up all the float !!

Need to have a good look in daylight. Apart from that it all looks pretty sweet :wink:
