step by step gyro installation

I know it sounds funny, but I've never used/installed one before. tongue
Can anyone help with a step by step on the installation?.  Starting from the VERY begining.
I saw an instruction sheet posted, but the writing was too small.  Couldn't read it.

Thanks for any help provided.

Re: step by step gyro installation

Danscomp has a tech section and they have a decent set of instructions for an ORYG. It has some unrelated stuff if you are building an old school bike (like alot of us here), but it does help with some other stuff.

Re: step by step gyro installation

Good luck guys. I will be changing the cables on my Gen 1 Gyro soon. I am debating whether or not to go through my headset etc. at the same time. If I do, I'll need to refresh my memory with these instructions too.

Re: step by step gyro installation

Here you go mate. I know they are photos but If you save them to your desk top and then use "Windows Viewer" you can zoom in.

Re: step by step gyro installation

Thanks Jay, that's how I imagined it going together.  I've had freestyle bikes since before the Gyro came around and never used one.  My next build will definately have one though.   Thanks again for posting that.

Re: step by step gyro installation

Hi,
I'm looking at installing a gyro on my '87 Mongoose Californian, right now it has all stock components.  I was wondering aside from the gyro, top/bottom plates and top/bottom brake lines... is there anything I need to worry about to get the setup to work right?  For instance, do i need new levers or brake calipers to get it to work right?

Also, I want to install the front brakes and need a hollow stem bolt.  It looks like the stem bolt on the bike is roughly 6.25" to 6.5" long... Do I need to match this length exactly?  I've been scouring ebay and haven't been able to find one that length.

Thanks so much for the help and advice!
