Now you tell me Wilmot,,,where did it bend and did they warenty it,,,cause then its going to be Kmod or Tsled for me........The Yamaha light weight skid that i have been talking so much about is a pos. I was replacing my track pulled my skid and the front arm is bent. I rode it one season. going to see the dealer and hope the part is under warranty. now im thinking i should install it on the 09 for my wife it should be ok on trail's.
Can you tell us a little bit about your design and why you went that route? How does it work, how much does it weigh, with a single shock like that is it still a regressive suspension, is coupling amounts adjustable, where does it excell, and where doesn't it?
Hi, sorry about the slow response but we do not particapate that much in the forums. I will try to explain how it works but should do a vid! If weight is transfered to the rear under power the front arm imeadiatly starts pulling up. This is the only suspension that I know does this. This makes the rear arm fully sensitive to power and keeps awesome aproach angle without having ultra short limiter straps and heavy steering. As the front gets colapsed the rear follows very close deminishing the ramping effect. There is also 6" of shock stroke used on the front arm and full force,THIS IS WERE THE WEIGHT IS ON BUMPS! You can have it all. The weight is 33LB for a 162 and there are tons of adjustments for transfer and ride with neither hampering each other. One huge benifit other than performance is the lack of rust and fatuige and being transferable between different makes and models for a long term investment. The unit excells in every aspect unless you want lots of transfer for wheelies, then I would look elsewere.Can you tell us a little bit about your design and why you went that route?
