2wd low w/ \'H\' pattern w/ PICS OF FORK!!!

Here are a few pics I used to communicate with Glenn at RRO while finding out how to do this mod.

The first thing you need to do is remove the center bearing, we all know that. It is the second part that we are all stumped about, modifying the fork.

The first one is an unmarked picture, I put this one up because the other one is of poor quality and I wanted you to know what you were looking at when you see the second one.

Re: 2wd low w/ \'H\' pattern w/ PICS OF FORK!!!

This is a marked up picture. The notch that needs to be modified is outlined in red. Glenn told me that it needed to be doubled in length. The green and the blue sections were used to ask which side to make it bigger on. His answer was the green side.

So that is it, make the red outlined notch twice it's original size. Basically remove the area of the fork colored green.

WARNING!!! DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! I have not done this for myself yet to see if it really works. So if any of you out there who have done it thinks any of this is wrong I would appreciate you letting me know ASAP. I will be doing the mod this weekend when I change out my gears. If I don't hear anything against it, I will do it and let you all know how it went on Mon.

When I bought my modified fork from Petroworks, they also gave me an additional spring to put inside the spring holding the outside detent ball (the one accessible from outside the case). I guess they feel there should be a little more tension there.

Re: 2wd low w/ \'H\' pattern w/ PICS OF FORK!!!

Maybe I will try to do that too. Which spring are we speaking of now? Is it the ONLY one accessable from the outside? What size of spring will I need, if you can estimate it? Thanks, F_T

The ONLY info that I have found is the "H" pattern is a little easier to use. That's all..

when ya take the ball out, ya got a *funky* shift pattern. takes some gettin used to accordin to what ive heard. ***NEVER DONE IT PERSONALLY***, grindin the fork just gives ya the **H** shift pattern and makes shiftin much easier...

i just removed the center detent ball and made a flat spot on the front and rear of the shifer lever since the end is rounded it wants to slip off one fork or the other so with it flat it seems to grab both forks better
