Quadzilla 500 xlc different A arms, bearings and swingarm

Postby Spoonvxr » Sun Jul 10, 2016 6:30 pm

I have stripped my quad right down to have some engine work done. (Removing the 500 and getting rid of it for something else with a bit more power) and I am looking into getting the handling sorted. So I have a few questions:

Has anyone managed to find any A arms with castor and camber adjustment?
Are there any bearings that I can install that are uprated?
Has anyone found an extended swing arm compatible with the xlc?

Cheers
Matt

I don’t know whether any would available from Germany but the smc wildcat racing and smc trashers appear to come with wider a arms and a wider back axle. They are the same bikes as the 500 XLC

ive had a look at trying to find A arms for the smc wildcat on the net but had no luck :(

would polaris predator 500 Aarms fit or something similar from another make and model of ATV?

or would it be a custom fabrication job to make the original Aarms wider or make new ones

Has your quad got the new still stub axles? (upper & lower ball joints the same. No pinch bolt on the upper) If you have Raptor ball joints fit them & I can measure my A arm bracket & see if they'll fit if you like.
