steppin down

well i have been thinkin of steppin down from the lift and outlaws to some 26" and stock suspension. i have been missin my trail bike and i think i can turn the brute back into what i am missin. i would really like some big horns or something similar to them. i also would like to have the 08 springs to soften up the ride. tires, lift and springs are alll up for trade.

Man, don't be haisty, have a couple beer n a good night sleep you'll have forgotten all about the delusions of happiness with a less than capable machine and remember that yer Brute was designed and customized by you personally and is like a good dog............just messin with ya , really glad yer gonna keep it n remodel though, nice choice.

I dropped mine back down a while back and love it as a more trail worthy machine. Plus I don't break near as many parts as I did when it was a full-on mudder.

Yeah I know the feeling.... dont get me wrong, I love the heck outta my lift and will probably never get rid of it but it does take away from all the cuttin up that my freinds get to enjoy and I have to sit and watch. IT ALL CHANGES WHEN WE GET TO DEEP STUFF LOL (Well may consider a 4" Catvos...but other than that I'd never get rid of it)

yea . i had a 10 in Catvos lift it was to wide for the trail , so i step down to a 6 in catvos love it good in trails mud and it loves deep water

ditch the 26's and get some 28" zillas and a almond secondary spring. i have a 09 brute and rode it for a year with the 28 zillas on my stock bike, stock springs, stock suspension. competly stock. and even with the 28's i could nail down the throttle and spin tires whenever and however i wanted. didnt take much away. you should get the 28 with an almond sec spring just to give you a little more to turn them. plus you will be just a little higher with 28's than the 26's. it wil help you a little more whne you want to hit the mud

I did it, and you saw how much fun I had at the Labor Day ride, hell I followed you through all those holes didnt I

Especially the first one you tricked us into backwards.

I set the record at a local mud bog with 26'' 589's and a 2'' HL lift . I like to slide and play to much to get a huge lift and tires .
