Has anyone done this to get a wider wheel distance for better handling? Just want some of your thoughts.
If you did I think you would have to remove the mud scrapers so that your valve stems don't get ripped out. IMO if you flip your rears you will be putting to much load on the wheel itself. When mounted correctly the hub sits in the middle of the rim. Just my 2cents
I was never the best speller!
The wheel is not really the part in question its the hubs, bearings and shocks that are taking the increase in forces. As been discussed in other threads its worse on the front because of the turning aspect.
yeah its less force on you (with a bar) but its still the same force on the quad isnt it. The quad hasnt got any lighter. For example tightening a wheel nut you can tighten it to a certain degree with a wrentch but if you get a longer bar and tighten it with the same force applied before your going to be putting alot more force on the nut.
Have you noticed your shocks feel softer when riding your 700xx with the wheels flipped?
Yea, thats me. http://www.club700xx.com/vb/showthread.php?t=4171One guy on here done it and has a post about doing donuts or something.
Just tried it. Took it for a quick spin throught the corn field trail which has several 90 degree turns and I was able to go quite a bit faster than stock. A little nervous as to how the xx will hold up to the new changes but gonna take it for a longer ride to see how it does in the trails and if it will still fit in the back of my truck. Can always filp them back. Removed the scrapers too..
