Aftermarket accessories

Hey everyone, I'm new to the site and was thinking about setting my bike up a little bit. Some things I had in mind were tires, shocks, front a arms, ehs big 3 and a l8ton sway bar. Just wanted to know what brand of a arms to go with for the xx. Laeger and teixera are the two I am deciding over but if there is a better brand then I would reconsider. I'm pretty much set on L8ton for the sway bar and EHS for the big 3 kit. Was wondering if anyone has had any problems with these and how easy the L8ton fits. I'd probably go 11/16. For tires I was thinking 20x11-R10 maxxis razrs for the rear and 23x7-R10 razr 2s for the fronts. Has anyone ran 20s in the rear and do they lower the center of gravity a little bit? For shocks i will probably go elka because i have a 10% discount. Ill probably pick up stage 2s for the front and leave the backs stock for a while. My main goal is to make my bike keep up with 450s around a track, plus I'd also like to do a good donut (almost impossible on a stock 700 lol)so I am thinking these mods will help a lot. Any feedback or suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

Welcome to the club! Sounds like you plan on doing a full mod. As far as the L8ton fit, it's a direct replacement to the oem bar. No fitment issues what so ever. Cant say the same for the Barkers, but I have no personal experience. For the arm's, like tbird said texeria. 20" rear tire will lower the quad, but the 10's will widen it. Which will help imo for track but not tight woods or trails. The 23 fronts will rub some nerf bars, if you plan on adding bars.

I do have personal experience with Barkers... I had no fitment problems at all. I have a first generation Barkers and some have had a rub issue, but I didn't. Barkers has a second generation system now and has corrected this problem.

Thanks for the help guys, glad to hear about the sway bar and big 3. I think I may forget about the A-arms for now, in the future I may go with stock size replacement uppers so they fit the elkas but 1k for a arms right now seems pointless. If the 23s rub then I may go with 22s in the front instead since I plan on getting Nerf bars eventually. Are there any other mods that would really make a difference to the bike? From all my research these seem to be the things that make the most difference but if I'm forgetting something please let me know, also how easy is it to install the ehs fuel programmer?

While I'm here I may as well ask lol I was trying to adjust the front shocks to make them stiffer but I couldn't get the spanner Nuts to turn around the threads. I had the front of the bike jacked up. The entire thing would turn including the spring, nuts and threads but I couldn't get the spanner nuts to turn freely around the threads, am I doing something wrong or is this a common problem and what is the correct way, I couldn't find anything about the adjustments in the manual either. Sure is not as easy as my elkas on my other bike lol thanks

IDK about the threads turning, but the spring turning is no big deal. Try spraying threads with wd-40 or similar product. And then try losing the top spanner from the bottom. Once separated then tighten down the bottom one by itself 1st.

After a quick look the only way I see for the threads to turn is if the stop is missing. Or not seated correctly, does your's look like this?

There is no need to replace the upper a-arms, S2 Elkas will fit our quad... unless you bent them and have to replace anyway.

23s only rub some brands of nerfs... Pro Armor nerfs have fitment issues.

The EHS programmer is very easy to install.

A 13t front sprocket... easy to install and cheap. Forget this... I just re-read your first post... If you were going with a 22" rear tire, yes. But, not for a 20" rear.

Maybe there is something wrong with my left front shock, it lifts up off the stop and the right side doesn't so I'm guessing something isn't seated correctly, not really worried about it since I'm getting elkas soon
