ok, you all know my o8' 300ex, its narrow, i like it narrow, but when i do a 90degree turn on trails it likes to tip, even with me as counter weight. So i was wondering if some wheel spacers would be fine or should i just get a wider axel?

An axle will help more than wheel spacers would.G force makes a good one.

would doing slides around turns put strain on the wheel spacers and possibly break them? i would say a wider axle would be better, retains your center of gravity and divides the strain across all points

I have spacers and I haven't had any issues but a wider axle is the way to go if you can afford one.

I agree with Moose. Get the wider axle if you can.

A little but it's added safety.

I would go with the wider axle also.

In your situation I would go for the spacers. You're right that your quad will look funny with the back being wider. I see that you are still running the stock tires. I thought my quad was tippy as all hell until I got some razr's on there over the dunlops. Those Dunlops do not slide for anything. Try new tires before you start changing the stance.

Yeah a ATC 350x has the same carrier but I thin they have the same axle width.

OK the ATC 350x has a wider axle or hub by .4 of an inch so it's not worth it.

As of now not running the gatekeeper grille essentially on the grounds that I hit a thick tree appendage that demolished Safety Vest the grille and broke the watchman and I just killed it and never took a stab at superseding it. I'll no doubt end up fixing the front end finally.
