What is the part # for the replacement flybar? the stock one is too big by .001"! My LHS cannot find it and I don't want to go back to plastic holder or buy a new holder/flybar set when I bend the flybar

Bob,

If you make your own do you have to thread the ends with a die? I would think music wire would be pretty hard to thread.

For those of use that Shogun paddles use this method. No threading necessary.

I just had the same problem,
I did a red-neck lathe job on mine... You know, chucked the regular flybar into my drill and holding 120 grit in my hand. Then chuck the other end into the drill...... Worked perfect. Infact it seems that the grooves left by the lower grit sandpaper are helping my flybar control arms stay put. Yes, it did remove the paint.. but I am not worried about corrosion, I'll destroy it before corrosion has a chance. And the now silver flybar matches better.

the hardest part is getting the corkscrew shaped trashed flybar out of the aluminum seesaw holder. I had to use a cut off wheel. They just wont slide out bent.

Interesting. Why no threading - do the Shogun paddles use a set-screw instead?

I recently had to remove a pretzel'd flybar. When I went to replace it I found the same problem - my new flybar wouldn't fit. So I straightened the old one. I used a little trick I learned from hang gliding. We sometimes "re-profile" our wing ribs by bending them over a car tire. This allows you to do real nice smooth bends. Instead of a car tire I used something a little more "scale" (my leg). To my surprise I got it looking as good as new in a few minutes.
