BikeEd changelog:
- support for geometry that is laterally offset ( example: Panigale rear suspension )
- support for rear suspension geometry where the rocker - rod link is the upper one, and not the lower one ( example: Panigale rear suspension )
- added the possibility to disable the automatic update of the swingarm angle ( and then manually change it )
- added preload setting for testing
- added the possibility to change the swingarm pivot position for testing
- added the sag readings for testing

Updated the SPR Generator, too.

To show the tyres in the Bike Editor, set the path to tyres.pkz ( or the unpacked folder ) in the file bikeed.ini
Example:

[tyres]
path=C:\Program Files (x86)\MX Bikes\tyres\

Bike tools updated:
http://www.kartracing-pro.com/downloads/vt.zip

BikeEd changelog:
- improved rear suspension geometry editing and display
- the rocker and rod length must now be set directly
- the "Rear Suspension" slider now sets the swingarm angle when "Rear Suspension Update" is disabled

- a very simple tool to approximate the chassis inertia has been integrated.
When loading a GEOM file, BikeEd automatically reads a file named "inertia.cfg", if it exists in the same path.
Example file, used for the stock 350xf bike:
elem0
{
name = engine
mass = 33.51
pos = 0, 0.54, 0
size = 0.2, 0.38, 0.35
}
elem1
{
name = chassis
mass = 19
pos = 0, 0.66, 0
size = 0.25, 0.65, 0.45
}
elem2
{
name = tail
mass = 6
pos = 0, 0.77, -0.52
size = 0.3, 0.4, 0.6
}
elem3
{
name = front
mass = 5
pos = 0, 0.88, 0.3
size = 0.3, 0.5, 0.2
}
The inertia parameters and mass position are then displayed on screen.
It is possible to hide the inertia data: Toolbar -> Draw -> Chassis Inertia

Important
- to save the GEOM file for MX Bikes Beta13, the following lines must be added to the file "bikeed.ini":
[save]
legacy=1

BikeEd changelog:
- fixed the linkage suspension nomenclature
- the legacy save has been dropped. Now BikeEd writes data only in a new format, that cannot be read in MX Bikes beta13 and older. However, please note that both BikeEd and MX Bikes can still read the all the old formats.
