    Some machine work we did


    Me and my buddy Alan came up with some parts for the 04-08 Aprilia RSVR and Tuono. %10 of the credit goes to me, in all fairness. The linkage plates are stronger than stock, and the dogbone (pull-rod) is relieved to allow the shock to be lengthened beyond 318mm. His boss let him do the the work at his shop, but that might have been a one time deal. The parts look better than the pictures. EDIT 05-08 Tuono.

    Ha ha, it looks like Alan would have to sell all twenty sets to cover his time and materials. This kind of stuff is tough to make money on, hence the lack of love for crusty old out-dated swill. Thanks for the compliments, he's a hell of a machinist.
