Need help fast (A arms)
I started to do this my way....and realized quickly that I don't have time for one of my due diligence excursions. I have roughly 10ish days before I'll have an opportunity to drop a bike in some uncharted, and super gnarly territory....My front left control arms both cratered after a 6ft drop into a non existent landing.
I don't need to widen or lower, just need good replacements fast. Because of the time constraint, and the fact that I'd like to get a shake down ride (or 2) in before I pack up and head even further from civilization for a few days, budget is not an issue.
The one thought I had, is that I walked away from this due to 2 things: my pre-flight ritual, and the fact that the A arms absorbed a lot of force as they hit their limits....if you upgrade your A arms....does this risk transferring energy into the frame or is there literally no way the mounts do not give way before that occurs?
Though I may shake my fist at them again tomorrow, tonight I will bow my head and offer these vulcanized tires as tribute. I will cut the night with the sound of wide open throttle...and no matter what....If I am destined for Valhalla....I will enter as a man who did not lift. - Speed Demons prayer to the Gods of Chaos.
