............there are some more good idea's...I knew I wasnt thinking of everything. I dont know if I would do the aluminum axle though. He is concerned with keeping strength. From what I have heard is the aluminum axles are good for drags and hill climbs....but they cant take the stress of jumps of whoops...or anything that causes vertical stress. Aluminum does not flex....the steel ones do.Shredder770 said:Loose the parking brake assy, fenders, headlights and go with aftermakets like trail tech this alows you to loose the brackets. loose the steel handlebars, aluminum rear axle, front bumper have a rear shock made for you and loose he coupling linkage, and a good poop before the ride should do it!! :grin_nod: :grin_nod:
I know Mike.....I only could think of a few things...and you definately added some more good ones. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:Shredder770 said:I guess my point was that you touched on a few things but there is a ton of stuff you can do to shed weight. in retrospect as a 280lb rider a few pounds off the bike and big power takes care of the rest
Agreed, we have the play axle on my sons Honda and he jumps quite a bit(Dunes).RaptorRandy27 said:The JJ & A solid aluim play axel is plenty strong for a duner and a good deal lighter than the stocker. It's the gun drilled drag axel that's only good for drags and hill shooting. The play axle is guranteed and Jeff at JJ & A has the best no questions asked warranty in the industry and excellent customer service just in case there is ever a problem.
