The 1/4" toe-in will make the tires appear to be pointing in when you look at it from the front of the bike right? I was under the impression that both front tires had to be slightly pointed outward to be correct. I'm confussed! :confused: please help. I notced on new quads in the show room are pointed outward just slightly... My TOE-IN and TOE-OUT has the Gout (a form of arthritous in the foot)!!! I'ts in need of some medical attention. :'(

While driving straight on flat dirt. The bike wants to float (agressivley) from side to side. I'm thinking it's this toe-in or toe-out problem. It started doing this after a buddy ran it into the back of a parked F-150 truck, hence bending the bars. He bought me new bars (and were still friends) but now I've noticed this problem. Any ideas, thoughts, concerns or emotional outbursts???

What should I do????

The front (bumper end) of the tires should be closer together than the back (exhaust end) of the tires for toe in.


And for camber, the tires should be closer on top than bottom. / \ not \ /

But should I be running toe in or toe out? LIMITED660 suggests to run 1/8" wider in front than the rear. This would make it toe-out, correct? I just want to make sure we're on the same page.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the toe-in should be set at 1/4". To get to the 1/4", each tire should have 1/8" toe-in.
