X-Factory have announced new shims for the height-adjustable transmission in the X-6 Squared, X-60, and original X-6, which claim to be a big improvement over the original versions. These new shims are made of aluminium and so are lighter than the original steel version, they have also been anodized and have four different colours for easier identification. Chazz Sinclair, company president, said, “We’re able to hold better tolerances with the aluminium, especially in the smallest size, .030″. We continue to have the only height-adjustable transmission on the market, and the difference just .030″ makes in side bite & forward bite is incredible. The cool thing is that we’ve been able to lower the price by about 1/3 for lighter, better shims.” The new shims have been in all X-6 Squared Kits shipped since April 24 and will be in the X-60 by mid-May. All original #5700 shims are gone, so all #5700s shipped from now on will be the new parts.
