rear brake torque arm musings

Post by spotarama on Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:57 pm

thinking of replacing the torque arm on the back of the Honda, will alloy bar do the job or will it bend twist, or otherwise fail and cause my death in a fiery ball of hell. the gap it has to fit in is only maybe 4mm wide, is this going to be strong enough
naturally speed holes will have to be drilled to make it look tricker as well as lighter

is it in tension or in compression? If the latter then no, firey ball of hell, etc etc etc. If in tension then it should be fine.

Obviously you should use the highest of engineering grade aluminiums and not a selection of bent tent pegs although they'd probably do if you gave them a good talking to and remember to glare at them occasionally.

In all seriousness though, why do you want to change it? if it's weight that you want to save then could I direct sir to the low calorie beer aisle and if its looking good then I'm told spandex is all the rage this year.

anyway, yes I think you could change to a bit of ally bar if its in tension. No I don't think its a good idea Smile
