Well said....good logic.a lit?? lets see pro's
as its a shorter list, allows for larger tires, and can lIFT the body up higher
and I gather to many folks juuks better, so apperance!
effects reliablity of atv in general, adds stress to drivetrain due to angles, and then IF you add in larger heavier tires, even more stress on things, like,brakes, suspension, tir rods, axles and so on raised center of gravity, which can effect safety!(same with less braking power with larger tires)
then the power loss issue's of larger tires(not saying a lift will cause this, BUT few folks lift and DON"T add larger tires, so?? including here LOL
I guess this can be a plus/pro
larger tires and a lift can get you thru deeper things, and into places a stock atv MIGHT NOT get to
CON"S< this same new ability can get you stucka LOT deepr and farther off into no where LOL
making recover harder LOL
HEY, atv's are more or less toys, for fun
so, if you like what ever and have the coin to play, enjoy!
just don't cry when things break
fun many times comes with hidden prices LOL
I agree with you, folks that never been there done that, many times miss the pro's of rthingsMy thoughts of who a hater is : it's the major majority of those that say "I wouldn't never put a lift kit on my bike " , most are saying that based on hear say from others and not personal experience as they just told you I would never put a lift kit on my bike , they have seen the problems it makes , but they never experienced the advantage 2" of lift and 2" of tires and can make -------or their personal belief that either financially or mechanically "they" don't need it , so why should you --------- they will tell you to "Walk this way " but never did the walk themselves , only heard about it or seen it on someones else bike but never did it themselves to see what really caused it , you have to add in the "Fool Fact " , most people that get a lift kit and bigger tires are going to act a fool , that's why they are doing it cause they can't act enough a fool with what they got ----- if I want to run 27"s instead of 25's and a lift kit to make it work is going to make the ball joints , cv joints and bearings wear out quicker , I'm ok with it cause that is the price you pay if you want to play , how's it go " no pain , no gain " and " to each his own"
Just like I've said in the past, a lot of the 420's and 2012+ 500 Foreman's have had rear driveshaft issues with 2" lifts. But it's important to know that this is NOT the norm at all for every machine out there. Would I install a lift on one? Probably not. There is more then one way to fit larger tires, which is the only true way to gain GC on an SRA anyway.well fish fly since you defined a hater as somebody that never been there and done it well that's were your wrong I put a 2in kit on my 500 foreman after 8 hrs in the woods that night went down in my garage to clean up quad hmmm what did I find a puddle of oil coming out of rear pilot shaft seal gone we are just trying to help people with there choice to use or not so they don't make the same mistake I did rethink next time you use hater as your definition good luck to ya:r_c:
dr-rosey is it , maybe I am ""throwed off" on that one , I have wondered what the pms is all about --------I read where you got a whole 8 hours of 2 inch lift kit experience to share with us and I am sorry for you that it was all bad for you , as stated your problem might be what your riding , I don't have one of them and doubt I ever will ----- come ride with us today on the most reliable ATV Honda ever made , going to be nice , they are predicting 70 + degrees , right now at 2:00 am it is 58 , just letting you know that cause we are able to ride 50 weekends a year , looks like 6 of my 300's will be riding today , say about 3 hours each , thats 18 hours riding time , thats more than double your bad experience day in a day , they all got 2 inch lift kits and I doubt it very seriously that any lift kit , big tire related break downs will occur , I should have never said that "knock on wood " , in the past year I have change a couple of tie rod ends that broke , stump jumping more the cause than lift , and on bikes that are 15-20 years old that ain't bad -------- in todays society I think I have the term right , if you don't like what someone does and what they are doing is not illegal or a sin and you voice badly on it , no matter how stupid you may feel that what they are doing is , then to me that person is a hater " live and let live "well fish fly since you defined a hater as somebody that never been there and done it well that's were your wrong I put a 2in kit on my 500 foreman after 8 hrs in the woods that night went down in my garage to clean up quad hmmm what did I find a puddle of oil coming out of rear pilot shaft seal gone we are just trying to help people with there choice to use or not so they don't make the same mistake I did rethink next time you use hater as your definition good luck to ya:r_c:
