looking to builda new frame out of a stronger lighter DOM tubing, or something better.
with all the facotyr specs. and added gussets to make the frame stronger and better.
I'm thinking a bent my frame this past weekend. but dont know how.
my toe settings are in spec. but I can turn hard left and everything clears just fine, but hard right and my tire hits the floor board. theres 3/8" off but i cant seem to find how or where.
for me it dont really matter if the machine is lighter or not. but has to be stronger.
i know the fatory upper strut mounts are weak. and bend if you dont have a rack of strut brace.
so i would want a thicker stronger metal used also beef up the a-arm mounting points.
has anyone had a custom frame build or knows were to have one made.
my goal is to make my prairie last longer and hold up like a tank.
since its used for snow plowing, trail riding, mudding, sled pulling, and of course jumping, wheelies, and plain old, HOLD MY BEER IM GOING TO TRY SOMETHING kind of riding. lol
the factory frame held up pretty good i think. i never broke the cross tube under the seat like others have done. but I have rolled it once last winter. but the frame was not bent. every thing else was.
I dont know if its from when i was cruising down this one trail following my buddy on his TRX450R. and jumped off a hill. but my machine landed hard on the right front wheel. i dont know if i bent the a-arm or the frame for sure. but something is out of spec. it ride strait and handle normal. but like i said my right front tire now hits the floor board at full hard lock.
