Twin Pivot Plate G50 thickness?

I'm in the process of "jigging" the Egli frame on to the twin engine that I am building, but I do not have a G50 plate, as I am awaiting an electric start from Francois. Could someone let me know what the thickness is?

I'm trying to get the swingarm in and determine what offset I need for the rear wheel (I got caught out on the last build for my Egli-Comet!).

Hello, Have measured 3, 2 at .310" one at .324" Could be 8mm or 5/16". So Vincent. Regards John.

I know the Comet and Flash G50s that I have measured in the past have been 5/16" and so were the footrest plates on the Flash and Lightnings, so I suspect they used that thickness on many of the parts.
