Okay.....I saw the other post and have alway been thinking about getting a chest protector. The major problem is fit. I have not tryed any on before. I am 6'5" and about 275lb :help: I know what your think but I can ride very well. Now back to my point. Does any one in my size range have one that fits them?

Thanks

I'm house bound about 85% of the time. When I feel like it i will go see friends, ride the rappy, or go shoot some guns but that is about it.

I'm being treated by this guy http://www.drcharlescrist.com/aboutdrcrist.htm and a chinese herbal doctor, by the looks of it I would be well til the end of this year at best! Kinda sucks to get sick during half way through your junior year of HS and miss all of senior year!

WXSTR,

DUDE............ I feel small now!! 6'5" 275

As for suspension-
Front - Set it as hard as it will go! I am looking into a-arms and shocks that are set to my size. over all it works OK.

Rear- Set the shock as hard as it will go. I am looking at getting a shock set for my size. The rear is soft still, but better than it was from the dealer.

I would recommend that you look at after market shocks. They can make them with springs set to your size. It will help as you are not getting any preload at your size. Believe me I know. I was about 335 in July when I got my Raptor.

Bro...were do you live? Shit....you me me on our Raptors, we would scare the hell out of some poeple! :mad:
