Kiwi Craig has asked me to put some pictures up of the ATV Racing a-arms.

These pictures were sent to me by Neil from ATV Racing http://www.atvracing1.com/home.htm

They are in raw form in the pictures, but are supplied powder coated to your choice of color.

Mine should arrive here in Australia early next week. I will put some more pictures up when they go on.

I can not thank Neil enough. Nothing is a problem including shipping them to Australia.
Told me he had a set on the shelf ready for powder coating. Asked me what color I would like & said they should be ready to ship within 4 days.
4 days later I got an e-mail telling me they had been shipped & giving me a tracking number. A+ for great service.

A-arms:

1" 4130 chrome molly, +2" & are set up to take the standard shocks.

These are made by ATV racing in Arazona.
Yes, they are +2", but I can't compare them to the KTM ones as I've never seen a set.
They bolt straight up & take the standard shock.
I can say that these are very well made & finished.
The service was great as well.

The back end is on he standard axle, spacers & hubs. It is only 20mm narrower than the front end. This should be a good balance.
I will put some hours on it as is now before I look at going further.

Since you kept the stock suspension, did the added length in the front make the suspension too soft? Or can you adjust the suspension to compensate for this? Were these expensive?

I found the front end a bit hard before I put the wider arms on.
With the wider arms the front on the standard shocks is fantastic, and I'm no feather weight. A bit of dialing the compression and rebound in and all's good.
I can't remember the pricing, but I'm sure it was under $800.00 with the brake lines and clamps.

are the ball joints welded in? or screwed in. and can they be changed when they wear out?

I have the +2 ktm arms and so far the only difference I see is, those arms don't have the same bend on the lower a arm that the original ones have, which the ktm +2 have the same arch, and as for the ride it surely made it more soft and smoother, what a difference in handleing as well. I also got mine for a little over 600, which also came with brake lines and tie rod & ends, easy bolt up and go, 1 hr for install.

garsh! its Arizona you bloody Australian! lol jk

no offence to neil or his company but ive seen quite afew of his a-arms taco'ed, bent, broken, broken welds. On afew dune bikes but mainly desert racing and one that was used to MX sometimes too.

This was about a year ago now, since ive seen any trashed. i guess for light recreational riding they would be fine, but hard racing i havent seen them fair too well.

Just what ive seen.

It's Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie you bloody yonk, yink, whatever :lol: :lol: :lol:
Sorry, had to throw that in!
Hope you guys get the Australian humour.

I use mine for MX, dune riding and also trail riding. Yet to have a problem and it does cop a fair bit of abuse.
I think it's like everything. No matter how good something is there will always be failures.

Jakel - the ball joints have 2 welds on each to hold them in place.

I've only met 3 Aussie's that I can remember and they all lived in Arizona when I was growing up. I know they all had to have a sense of humor cause all 3 had a mullet. :lol:

All you guys are welcome here any time.
I'm sure we could round up some spare bikes to go and play.
I back onto Stockton dunes so we can ride till we drop.
