Winners believe in overkill.  Losers take things for granted.  

I'll experiment with the Kamaeri, but if the other aftermarket gears can't replicate the settings I need, then I need to make the Kamaeri more "durable" by locking it permanently into the setting that works.  Its craftsmanship is exceptional, so the only issue I can image would be bolts that come loose.  Mine is already pinned into a position I need it to hold.  The bolts are red Loctited.  They will be marked with paint to see if they shift.  What more do you need???

I have never had one slip, and never had any external cam pulleys slip.

But then again, I know how to put things together......

 

In any form of racing, or in all of things dealing with life, the intelligence of the people involved can be charted on a graph.

And it will always be a bell curve, with a most of people in the bottom half, then decreasing numbers of people as the brain power increases.

And some people think they can build a race engine, and never look at it, while others do a complete tear down after every event,

 

That's actually not a "Bell Curve"...better to remain silent and be thought a.....

I like your reasoning. Be safe.


An idea doesn't work unless you do.

Ok, ok, so I used the wrong terminology.

An exponential curve.....

There, are you happy ?

 

No matter how I put it, there would have been someone trying to pick it apart, after all this is a forum,

and we are dealing with the same bell, err, exponential curve of intelligence.
