I challenge your assumptions here. What mechanical engineerig expertise do you have to make such a statement?DECEPTiON21 said:If your quad every travels more than a foot vertically, Do not touch these kits. You will break something. if you can't afford to do it right, dont do it.
Your assumptions here are backwards. With the diamondjcustoms (the eBay seller from the original poster) widening kit, front end geometry stays identical in all axes except side to side. And the side to side axis geometry changes in an identical fashion to that of adding extended A-arms All pivot points relative to the wheels are identical to stock. Bump steer is identical to stock.krwyellowz28 said:I don't understand why anyone would buy this kit. Widening the a-arm pivot points will completely screw up the front suspension geometry. Steering will be affected the most, and bumpsteer will be almost unlivable. widened a-arms are obviously the best choice, but wheel spacers or offset wheels are a much smarter cost-effective choice.
Guess you missed something..... And you typed it. I take less attractive as looks.QuadManiac said:Once i got it and installed it, all of my reservations disappeared. My analyses are from looking carefully at the actual installed product. My exuberance over the kit is due to about 100 hours of riding (by myself and many others) since it was installed. The fact that I have a nearly identical quad with extended A-arms has put me in an unusual position to do side by side comparison.
My final analysis is: If you can't afford extended A-arms, this is a great, slightly less attractive, economical alternative.
