I gotta have back brakes .... and gotta be able to spin my bars.

I think Gyros rock. They easily work as well as no Gyro once you have it set up properly. It takes a LONG time to set it up right though, but once it is there, it is there for a long time.

I swear by gyros! Do you mean the lower cable that comes frome the gyro to the brakes? if so do you run a dual cable set up or a cable spliter? Also which part of the cable is too short?

I'm running a Odyssey GTX-R with a Hoffman lower plate on my S&M right now. It works just as good as when I had a Odyssey Linear cable only.

edit: The difference is that Brian Scura, the owner of SST, would sell out his own mother to make a profit. Buy an Odyssey or - if McGoo compells you to for God-only-knows what reason - a Snafu.

never mind, i just picked up whatever cables i had lying around and put some stuff together and got front and rear brakes to work perfectly, beside the fact that their caliper brakes, but, yea, i ditched the whole gyro system.....
