The wife was in town with friends so i deciced to make a quick vid. This is me doing donuts on dry grass. This is actually the first time i've ever been able to do donuts... i kinda swapped my rear rims backwards and left/right and it made me wider.. alot wider... and alot more stable... just thought you guys might like to see the difference... my mods are listed in sig. Also it was kinda lugging the motor down in the grass with razrs. On loose gravel, dirt, etc it does beautiful drifts with ease.. Kinda made me want the big 3!:hey:

Man, your wife is goin'a kick your a**...lol

I've flipped mine, but only rode it in the driveway. 100 yards of narrow concrete with a dog leg in the middle. With my Z400 I wouldn't take the curve over 40. No pressing need to eat concrete if you know what I mean. With the rear wheels flipped, it was ridiculous. Combined with my sway bar mod, there was almost zero body roll. Felt strange to have the handle bars turned, and not feel that roll over. EXTREMELY stable. I did notice that the front still pushed a bit. Like the wide back end really did not want to change direction. I have heard that this can be the effect when running wide on back.
I flipped the fronts to see what effect that would give, but saw that the valve stems were hitting the brake calipers. I guess I need to spin the stems 90 degrees (they are laid over 90 degrees) so they are out of the way...that is as far as I got and haven't had time to mess with it more... Not sure what to think of it yet, but I can say that the stability is improved substantially. I want to feel what is like with all wheels flipped, and maybe with only the front. Playing around with this machine is really getting fun...
