Default Barcode 365 A-arms review

Got a chance to do some testing on the Barcode 365 kit on a stock 15 proclimb 800. Really impressed with this kit over the stock setup on the 15. Still using 15 spindles. Bang for your buck it's a much better way to go than the Skinz kit I ran last year. Even with the stock wide panels and boards I was still able to hook some nice turns with this kit. It gets a ski off the ground and holds sidehills better than the stock 38" 15 setup. The steering bracket increases steering radius by a good amount and is very simple to install. It's a 36" wide kit and moves the spindles forward 5". I thought before I rode that this would be too much on an 800, but was surprised on how well it worked. I'm sure this would be and even better kit for the Yamis and 1100 turbos. Allan redesigned the upper a-arms after I rode them and gave him input to put more caster on the spindle. This made his kit work much better in powder. I still need to throw some 16 spindles on it and try it, but for 12-15's I feel it's a better setup than stock. Only downfall that I was seeing is a little more input is needed steering on the trails. But I'd rather have something that performs in the backcountry more than trails like most of us would. This was on my buddies stock '15 with wide panels/boards and high bar telescoping post. I'm sure it would be even better with lower bars and narrowed like my 16 has. None of my helmet cams in the trees turned out very good last weekend cause the cam got covered in snow after the first couple turns. My buddy got a couple vids of me on his phone out in the open stuff on some hills just messing around. Nothing jaw dropping lol.

What is this "fix" you speak of?
I'm considering buying this kit, but I'm waiting to see if they offer it with the new spindle.

Re-worked upper A-arm. Now better caster on the spindle. And the new upper arm works for both 15 and 16 cat spindles using different tie rod ends.

We just went to powder coaters. Should have new kits ready in a week or two.
We've redesigned the uppers, so it works with both OEM spindles, at the same 27deg castor.

Heres a sneak peek of the new upper.
