Can anyone tell me what diameter and length bite bar was on the C11 chassis? Somehow, I managed to lose mine!   :dash2: 

 

Thanks.

Use .047 and bullet proofing to level

I think the original bite bars were .050.  I don't think JK ever offered a replacement bar.

 

I experimented with various sizes and never found anything I liked as well as the original.

My eBay-bought Cheetah 11 has .047.

My memory says Rollin is correct on the thickness - .050. I would use .047 wire if you want loose movement, and .055 if you want less movement.

 

I have a C11 Pablo race chassis here and it has .055, length is 3.03". But it's not stock. So go with either .047 or .055 at about 3.03". I do not recommend round tube at .050 unless you plan to install a new one after every race.

 

I agree with all the above answers  :sun_bespectacled:

It was .050 and a very flimsy (non music wire grade) almost paper clip like material. As Pablo stated they are around 3" in length.
