What I did was move the crash bar holders back. If you look at the side plates, you will see another set of holes that are farther back. This allows the bike to turn better too. After you have done this, you will need to make one new body hole for the wire. The new hole is pretty near the edge so just cut a slit from the edge to this hole.

P.S. Go to http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=183 it's a much more active bike forum.

I see you are in Granada Hills. You should come by the Sun Valley track since its so close to you.

I did the same thing, moved the mounts back. Then cut a very thin slit upward in the body so the wire can pass through without having to pull the guard wires out everytime I wanted to remove the body. Pretty easy and worth it

thank you for the prompt response, could u also guide me regarding chain settings and the esc, when i start the radio and the reciver the receiver lite does not go to green as described, the wheels only move when i switch on the receiver then even upon throttle nothing happens though my battery is fully charged. The battery portion or the cover is very irritating to remove and replace everytime for some minor adjustments (thats my judgement though)

The chain should be fairly slack, as long as it doesn't skip off the sprockets. Even if it rides on the swingarm, that 's okay for 1:5-scale bikes, looser is better.

Now, your ESC problem sounds more like a radio problem. Do the channels match in the Tx and the Rx?
