Hey guys what's up, forum hasn't really had much aftermarket talk so I figured I'd make a new thread to talk about some of the things I plan on doing by spring time.
As you can see by my sig, I really like houser products. I just like the way they look and perform. My plan is to purchase Houser +3/4 front A-arms with Elka stage 3s all the way around. I wish they made rear arms like Wayne Matlock used to run but no way in hell can I find those so I plan on staying stock in the rear for now. Might as well get a steel braided brake line while I'm at it so I can finally install my precision stabilizer. Also want to install my new streamline hydro clutch but I'm waiting to do everything together
I'm also going to need a new set of rears since I tore a hole the size of a dime in the sidewall of my rear holeshot. Still undecided about what I'm going to do about that but in the meantime I'm running my bearclaws in the rear (ughh). I'm thinking either maxxis razrs or gbc xrex, still not sure about size either. I'll probably stay with 20s because I like the way it geared down the bike a little bit. I may eventually buy a set of 11inch razrs also to replace the bearclaws but that's the last thing I'm thinking about right now.
I plan to enter some races this spring when I'm done with the build but I don't really know what to expect racing a 550 pound atv thru the woods, guess I'll find out. Also plan on taking it to Hatfield and McCoy trails this summer along with a couple of other cool riding spots but who knows. Alls I know is I can't wait for spring!
If anyone has any comments or suggestions please chime in

Just an update,

I went ahead and ordered the stage 3s along with the houser +3/4 arms.

Now a question for some of the racers out their - would you guys recommend still running the 11/16 swaybar once I get the adjustable a arms? I'm wondering if eliminating the push with just the arms would be enough to make the rear end come around in a corner.

That's cause the Fox's are shorter. I can't even set my ride height with them...Fox uses same shock on little 400 and 450's so they don't have to make a whole bunch of different ones, they just say this fits anything from say 16" eye to eye to 18" application's. And then say yea it's a little longer in some case's and a little shorter in others, but that's the shock for your quad!

How did you get houser rears and how did you find a l8ton swaybar to fit them? Can we get some pics?

Should have got Ed's +1 1/4" a arms and 4:1 front rims.

As for L8ton 11/16" swaybar and aftermarket a arms. Bit of a no brainer, it works .

Why because they sponsor you? Matlock and Castor ran Houser but I guess you know more than them too.

Tbird, I understand what you are saying but I got elka stage 3 front and rear along with the a arms and brake lines for just over 2k , I didn't think it was a bad price and Houser isn't exactly garbage lol
