You can tweak that banjo fitting on the rear brake caliper to get that kinky bend out of the hose. That's a nice feature on the Elixer CRs that the Rs don't have. Looks like a fun ride.

Still need to do some tweaking but thanks for the compliments. Glad I went with the Spot... it replaced a 2007 PUSHd Flux... I almost went with a 2009 Flux because I was thinking the 2009 Spot was sloppier than the 2009 Flux.
