Cabrinha bar - Recoil upgrade?

Postby Kamikuza » Mon Oct 18, 2010 7:23 am

At least, I think it's called Recoil - the spring thing on the 2011 bars that pushes the depower knobs holder bracket down the depower line towards the rider ...

Can I put one on my 2010 bar? Is yes, where can I buy the spares for it?

Yes there will be an upgrade kit. I haven't seen the kit yet, but I believe it comes with the new harness loop with removable security pin as well as the recoil and the redesigned trim adjusters. I'll post info as soon as can get a picture. I will have one in three weeks.

Cool that'll be interesting ... saw one the other day and it looked handy - I keep getting my balls all tangled up.

Sorry to hear about your testicular torsion, Kamikuza.

Please take a few photos of your Cabrinha Recoil Kit and post'em here, if you don't mind.

Oh it's done already, sorry :lol: went on a 2010 bar ...

The kit included new trim strap with balls and the slider that goes on the depower tube, a length of fishing line (nice touch!) and of course the spring thing ... follow the instructions or watch the Cab Tech Tip vid, easy as pie!

Oh crap Marc now I see that video ... I'd done it that way originally and thought it was wrong so put it back to through both triangles ... doh!
Ah now I've watched the vid, it ain't so bad :thumb: cheers for that!

:lol: what's with the fap-fap-fap noises in the background?!?
