Hi im still quite new here and i was looking at a few photos of ben spies r1 and i noticed his axle blocks looked just like stock r6 06-10 ones but with a bit of meat removed and it got me thinking i might get a spare second hand set and lighten them BUT first i just wanted to make sure its not under any tension from the wheel under hard acceleration/braking, i was under the impression all the force is on the axle(given its torqued down correctly)?? i am fully aware its almost pointless but hey its cheaper than a few ti bolts and its unsprung, so whats to loose apart from weight
Thanks Ollie

i have thought about this as well but to do it right would need to mill the centres out, as i dont think a dremal or similar would be good enough, they would end up looking like the rizoma ajusters
