But a few suggestions;
Pick a.arm width to fit the trails you ride on.
Keep the rear track slightly narrower than the front.
You can quickly raise or lower the rear swingarm by rotating the carrier 180į.
YFZ shocks from a carburetor year will lower the front slightly.
YFZ shocks from a injected year usually works with long travel arms.
(Measure to be sure).
Keep your handle bar height for your comfort, not someone else.

Last but not least, it's hard to have a street bike for the track and vise versa.
Thank you very much for answer! I wrote to Kevin in facebook, but didn't have a reply yet, anybody know if he is holidays or something?
Any other commen guys? Nobody used the poll, please make your choices and your opinion, this will help many riders. Thanks

Plus 3 arms would be illegal for most racing, that’s most likely why many don’t use them. I ride tight trails, but if I raced MX I would choose plus 2 arms with the best quality axle to match. I would also use long travel shocks.

@418Stroker , Good point about the +3 ilegal A-arms are ilegal for most MX racing, didn't know it's apply for the Raptor, since the +3 in the raptor its still less wider than YFZ450R with +2 A-arms. Thank you very much!
Keep sharing your opinions guys
