Teixeira upper A arms ?

Is there any down side to the stock replacement upper A arms? I'm thinking about buying a set to get rid of the push in the front end. I'd like to keep from buying a stiffer sway bar because I don't want to loose the nice ride and I'm a smaller guy (140lbs) so I don't notice the body roll that bad but I do notice push, usually at slow speed. Thanks Guys.

get some real tires and it will take away most of the push! a 500lb machine will push on 2 0r 4ply tires! get some 6 ply! if you have sxs get 8 ply !

Yeah just waiting for the stockers to wear out before I swap them. Tech 4's XC 6ply up front and kenda kutters out back. Do you think that would do more then the A arms would?

A arms will help the push more than tires. The tires help the front bite a little better but the a arms caster adjustment will help you swing a tighter turn radius. A thicker swaybar helps a little bit also

Is there any down side to the a arms? I'm looking for a tighter turning radius and figured the a arms was the best choice, I figured the tires will help too and like I said just waiting for mine to wear out. Been thinking about front shocks and bouncing back and forth on the idea, DS shocks would be nice but no way would I cut on the frame to clearance for them.

Welcome to the club! And it's not that big of a deal to fit the ds shocks. Some have done it with out cutting on the 700xx. And it's not the frame you cut but the upper shock mount, and it's very little..

Thanks for the pics, so it could be done without cutting on the mount? Just hate to think about modding something like that. The shock would be easy, I work in a machine shop so it would take and time at all. Wonder how much meats there to take off so you wouldn't have to cut the mount?

Not much a 1/4" or so on the left corner. Another member here did it with out grinding on the mounts. You can see how close it is to fitting w/out any angle grinding or altering the mount.

Below is a link where I compared stock upper arms, Teixeira upper arms, and a 9/16" sway bar. Happy reading!

Lil blue, I have all the mods and tires your talking about having
Here is my opinion on how well the worked for me and the way I ride.
The texeria tech a arms: they eliminated almost all the push I had in my front end, even with stock bald tires. The only down side could be a little faster tire wear.

The big l8ton sway bar stiffened I'll the rear end to help cornering and sliding, I don't feel like it sacrificed much of the xx's comfort.
With these 2 installed and stock tires the xx handle so much better for me and could almost turn as tight as a 450 or better

The kutters in the rear im nut to impressed with. They do seem to wear well and are much better then stock, but there just a knob knobby.

The tech 4 up front I think for the price you can't beat em. they help the texeria tech a arms do their job better. I have no complaints.

The ds450 front shocks I was able to grind enough and the right angles from the shock I didn't grind my frame at all. I was concerned about messing with my bike. But it's a great mod for cheap!
Hope this helps ya out man
