it seems to work, and apparently reduces dive under brakes

maybe the forks are just dampers?

Changing the trail under compression might be a good thing - if it's done right.

It could also be an extra complex way of achieving the same result - classic BMW!

the top yoke is exactly the same as a normal fork set up with the bars mounting normally there is no bottom yoke just the a arm which connects to the sliders via a ball joint when the brakes are applied the anti dive comes in and locks the suspension so there is no travel only when going over bumps in normal riding conditions which doesnt matter much so the set up is better than slider type forks which dont have anti dive its the same as the old honda step-thrus and does take a bit of getting used to to prevent skipping

Hey ev2go, just curious as to how you plan to cool your motor, and whether you still plan to lop off the non-drive shaft on the fan end.

Let me know, I'm using my Kostov with its fan and it's very loud when at speed. I gathering ideas for an electric thermo-controlled jobbie and was wondering about your intended approach.
(I don't want to chop off my excess shaft though:)

Not sure which one I have actually.
Mine has a silver fan cover rather than a yellow one if that's any indication (?)

Just wondering what would be the EMP of a Kostov on your nuts been that close? Is it a concern? Also just wondering have you thought about using MR10 or similar shatterproof scratch resistant Lexan in a tint of your choice? that way you can see all the wonderful frame and electrics like a Jellyfish under the deep ocean, even some LEDs can be stratigically placed so they can be changed to any colour you choose as you cruise with a knob on your dash or a program for multiple change mode. Would make everyone see things differently as I believe we should do everything we can to use electricals to convince non-EVolved thinkers.

I saw them advertising electromagnetic therapy on TV yesterday for one of those 6:30pm time slot news programs.

It was on some show, there is some kind of paint that is used in Germany due to their studies on EMP everywhere in metro areas, but Im sure there are other ways to stop the nuts from over roasting :)

I suspect when the front dips under breaking the front wheel pushes forwards as it traverses the ark (you are speeking about) thus keeping the same angle on the forks (more or less) under breaking as it has in normal stance. Just a guess based on what I see.

What batteries are you thinking of using now?

do you have a URL where I can go to look at specs for these batteries?
Google brings up nothing and I can't find them on the A123 web site?????

What is the top blue bar for on tour swing arm? I see the bottom one is to allow tilting.

Thanks
