Anyone have access to a CNC machine? I have checked with the local machine shops but none of them want to mess with setting up for a single run. Maybe we could get a group order.

I just put 22 inch Razor 2s on the front of my 04 Pred to raise the front a little so I would not be sliding down on the gas tank. It is now much more comfortable. This should have been the stock set up. Does anyone think these lowering kits would work good on my Pred. Do I need both the front and back lowering kits. Also has anyone did much jumping with these kits. Do they hold up OK.

I haven't done much jumping yet but the front one works great. I think it should fit your 04 but it will lower the front.

Armypred asked about jumping with the lowering brackets.

How high is high? To me jumping to the height of 3 to 4 feet is a high jump for me. At 3 or 4 feet of height maybe I travel 10 feet or 30 feet, depends on speed and jump angle.

I enjoy fast trail riding, anytime my wheels leave the ground speed is lost. Big jumps just don’t happen in the woods were I ride.

If you are the type of rider who chooses to jump to extreme heights, I suggest not lowering your predator. The lowering brackets are not for everyone’s style of riding.
Anyone who chooses to fabricate the brackets and install do so at their own risk.

I have tested these brackets by riding to my personal limit, everyone has a different limit.

ch701sp,
Could you put together a few of these kits to sell to your fellow Predator riders. If so what would a front and rear kit together cost.
Thanks

Last night I told a fellow "predator owner/this forum user" to feel free to produce and sell these kits at will.
I shouldn't give his name, he will do himself shortly.

Sorry but I have terrible results when I mix business with pleasure.
I dig making "one off" items, I don't dig business.

I just asked Garnib this question: What shall we design next?

regards,
Brad

Thanks again ch701sp for your permission to make and sell these lowering kits.

As 701 said he is allowing me to produce these kits. I have to finish up pricing with the shop in the next couple days. We should have a price buy early next week.

Would you guys like the kits to include the mounting hardware or just the brackets?

Let me know how many are interested for the first run.

Thanks

well iv just finished fitting my rear lowering kit, which is a great bit of kit, ch701sp i cant thanck you enough mate..
when i was fitting it i noticed my rear shock had come lose and dumped all it oil.. grrrr
im lucky as one of my mates has got a spare 05 fox shock, so iv fitted that, to get by till polaris can sort out a repair, us guys over here in the uk get a 24 month warranty, wot do you chaps get in the states, ??

the front lowering kit will alter the handling no end, the preddy will turn in so much easyer.. as for jumps im hitting 20ft table tops with no probs, thro its up to you!!! if you want to hit a 50ft jump at 50mph, dont come crying to ch701sp or my self, as your the rider.. we are not making you fit these... its wot we have chosen to do...

you ride at ur own risk...


keep it the sunside up...
