I thought, if this could help one way or the other ...what the hay.... while I had her torn down, why not.....

Funny thing...Tearing the bike down was easier, for this old fart, than making the program on the computer actually work...LOL

I am, what I call....computer "UN"-literate....LOL.

Also, I am not quite sure if I have EVER heard the word "practical" and "Bimota", uttered in the same sentence.....

And, Evil Chicken, as I tell my wife...

Oh I can do it, that's not the problem but as I explained there's just too much that would need replacing.
You on the other hand are already half way there 😊

I didn't get down to the garage over the weekend, I paid about 320 for the arm if you're interested

It's actually a V-Due arm, the welds on the chain tensioner parts is diagonal making them stronger, there's threaded holes for paddock stand bobbins, it takes a wider spindle and the arm is wider for a wider tyre

Think its a SB8 arm.
Vdues did not have the bobbin screws in as standard, only some trofeo and EF10 which have an SB8 arm, slightly wider for larger tyre.
