PRM for the skid plate. Not a big fan of the twist throttle.

Ive been riding bikes since I was 4, I figured I would like the twist on the rappy. I took it off after about 30 min. and sold it.

I ordered from PRM over the phone. My buddy has a twist grip and when he gets into some rough stuff he ends up loosing control because he gives it more gas. with the thumb throttle you can just let off. If that makes any sense :eek:

.125 is 1/8 and .190 is just over 3/16 thick. I got the rear swing arm plate 1/4 thick. want to get the under body plate next.

Nothing but a twist throttle here!!!! I have WAY more control of the quad. I grew up on bikes so maybe my experience keeps me from making stupid mistakes? I am willing to bet that once you get used to it you would NEVER go back to a thumb! :thumbsup:

+1

Roc is on point as usual !! You just have to give the twister some time to get used to...Don't trying whoop sections or anything crazy until your comfortable..


I went with Pro Armor on the skids and the Motion Pro kit for the twister........Both came from my local dealer because of the discount.. :thumbsup:

I got my twist from http://www.motionpro.com/. A company called Terry Cable also makes a "Dual Gasser" throttle which is both twist and thumb
