Did you know the stiffness squares with the diameter but is linear with the wall thickness.I run .190 chrome moly wall axle on my 450. It does flex without a doubt, but I have never lost a chain. Next year im gonna go with a .250 chrome moly axle. Reikens racing has a couple of them listed. D
I did a search, several of them, this morning, and I didn’t find anything on the subject. Darn!!"Did you know the stiffness squares with the diameter but is linear with the wall thickness".
Al, can you explain this further?
I’m pretty sure Pete Muller has that information, but I couldn’t find it on his website.
Comments, compliments, criticisms and questions always welcome.
Yeah had to replace spacer. And after adding third bearing it no longer glows. My third bearing is centered between other 2 bearings and is connected with a hiem joint. It allows up and down axle flex but doesn't let the axle flex forward towards the drive gear.Have you replaced the spacer, and it no longer "melts" or contacts the caliper spacer?
