You can try to press a small diameter stainless steel rod in the inside of the neck gooseneck tube.
1/8 or 3mm Dia. should do it.
ok im not 100% sure what you mean. im guessing take the head off and drill a hole thru the neck and insert the rod that way. if you have any pictures thad be helpful. thanks again.
this worked perfect i used a 3,8 steel rod only cost $5 cut it to length and as cruel as it sounds shove it in....minor flaw neck is a little more stiff than id like but still works.
No need to drill anything, just take the head and head bolt off and push a stainless rod into the gooseneck.
ok i will try this thanks alot
Did you get the m17 pivot post
did you get any pictures of how you did this with the rod for the neck, as I may want to do it as well, just not sure how to or what is the best way?
