What brand high clerance a arms do most of you guys like and use?
I have a set of Highlifter on my XP1000 and bent one bad this weekend, its touching the axle. And being honest I was not beating on the machine and have no idea how it happen. The only rough trail I rode was trail 15 at windrock and honestly just crawled up it. I am sure it happen their but I usually know when I hit something hard enough to do that kind of damage. So with that said I am not happy with them at all.

They need to use .120" wall tube with decent bracing and that would not happen. Check out ORB if you want something heavy duty that will take a beating and has a lifetime guarantee not to break.

I didn't see you hit anything at top of 15... Maybe it was the extreme off camber to the left of 15 that put too much stress on that A-arm. If so that's just jacked up.!

I think they do make them out of .120 wall. It for sure came in contact with a rock because the paint is scratched off. I am going to see what higlifter does and if we cant work something out I am going to try the ORB ones.

Zbroz rear and backwoods armor front. All of these have been beat on bad. The front and rear have no powder on the bottom.....

Ordering the ORB now. I have the highlifter rear radius bars on my 1000 and they seem good had them on my 900. But I dont think I will be buying any more of their stuff after the reply I got from them today.

Their reply is the most redicilous thing I have ever heard from a company that's in the offroad buisness make. Shame on highlifter!

I can understand that any product can be damaged and how it is reasonable for any company to take the position of sorry but you hit a rock and that's not our fault. But for them to pretty much admit that their product is not designed for the weight of the machine if it takes a lick from a rock is ridiculous ! They need to stop making those inferior popcorn chit front A-arms and put duarabilty back in their work principles when making their products.

 Bullshit

Back woods Armor.. Tried a true. Guys keep posting questions about this and that brand. Plenty of guys in the club have had Zbroz trailing arms and raduis rods along with backwood armor acrched A-arms. I've yet to hear someone complain about them. Nothing wrong with trying something different. Just don't be surprised if it doesn't work out lol. I mean mark Pulled his Ball joints APART and ripped the mounts out of the frame. We then broke a hammer on the a-arm trying to get the ball joint out.. His A-arm was still good to go other then some scratches... Me, Big R, Marty, Mark. I mean shesh if we don't break them.....
