Re: SQ 4 MK II front hub assembly

Thanks guys. I have the complete original assembly, plus some new bearings. I need to understand how the dimensions stack up; I'm not 'getting it' at the moment, especially why Draganfly say the new top hat has to be inside the hub with their wider bearing, but the old 1/8" spacer is not used. ...

Re: SQ 4 MK II front hub assembly

Alternatively, I'll put the old bearing back in for a bit, or buy a new one to match the size Ariel used (more narrow than the one Draganfly supply) and use the old spacer.

Painting Brake Drums

Folks,

I'd like to give my front brake drum a little touch of glitz before the summer comes, replacing the over-heated black paint. What are you all using?

Re: SQ4 Saddle

I'd ask Draganfly when they plan to make another batch. I remember waiting months for mine, but it's spot on correct and very comfortable.

Re: Half-width Brake

As part of winter maintenance, I have my front wheel off for new bearings, a new tube and a look at the brake. It appears that I still haven't got it right. Take a look at this: IMG_20180215_203058.jpg To me, this is indicating that I haven't got the adjuster tight enough - there is about 40% contac...
