i cant say im the painter but i believe its not for saving weight but for strength we have had several cust. tell us that there swingarm bolt broke and cracked the back of the motor and we decided to make a stronger bolt so i don't think its a weight issue
and dont be so snappy guys we are all hear to learn and help

It looked like the bushings may have been moving a little where they contact the motor on mine. The hole in the motor is slightly larger than the 9/16" bolt. That's why I wanted to know the torque so I could get mine as tight as possible. A stronger bolt might be a good idea.

You'll know when I'm being snappy. I'm interested in your gear, just post what you have and stop wording it like some shop down the street, just list what you have, and save us the time....you'll probably sell more gear that way also.

Ex, I'm marketing such and such a product. It gives such and such advantage, and I'm asking $$$ for it. Quick simple and to the point. I'm trying to help, not hinder.

We want your info, I just was suggesting that you word it directly. Sounds like some cool gear. Just asking for the facts. :D Like I said, I'm here to help. Now take a deep breath, and come out smiling. Did you guys ever think of fabbing up some aluminum heelguards to replace the stock plastic/steel units? Also, Scott was over on ATV Connection wondering if anyone was thinking of offering a kick-start mod. I'm still chomping at the bit for a chromoly rear sub-frame. Please, keep us posted.

Green, it is different! Modquad must have bumped his head. Normally he is a wealth of info on new products. Keep up the good work.

green lantern, I don't think people are hating so much its just that they are wanting to spend money with you guys, but are finding it hard to do with out a web site up and running!!

Speaking of running, run, don't walk and go slap that spam sandwhich out of your programmers hands and get him to fix your shiznit! lol That was said in humor! lol


As the saying goes, "If you fix it, you web site, they will come!" he he lol
