It actually is an Akra system, built by Akra to HRC specs.

And the black coating on the forks is actually a different coating then TiNi, forget what it is called, but it is suppose to be more slipper then TiNi

I know it is.. That's why I was laughing.. I don't know whether to laugh b/c of the whole agreement/labeling thing or slightly peeved.. :confused

I see they've got two cans of Honda polish, they know what's good. Anyone know what the cylindrical thing on the bottom of the fork is?

I think that might be the Idle adjustment knob (right term?), in a weird location. Just a guess, but it looks exactly like one.

That is a remote front brake lever adjuster. To compensate for lever travel during a race. If I remember correctly.

I'm nearly positive that's Miguel's thumb rear brake. I know he has one, so I would assume it's on that clipon rather than the throttle side. But I could be wrong.

I think the silver "lever" underneath the clipon is the thumb brake.
