    My key is STRAPS

    Its probably the worst way to lower a bike but it works. I strap the rear AND the front. Doing the front keeps all 4 wheels on the ground verry well.

    thanks for the pics the second one is awesome!...yeah alot of people use swaybars but if you ride dirt also i guess the investment in a swaybar isnt worth it right?

    That was my thoughts, $200 for a swaybar or $5 for a strap. And i just pop the strap off in 30 seconds and go hit the dunes or anywhere elce. By straping the front it tightens up your front front end eliminating the umm body roll i gess is what you would call it. The bike sitcks to the ground verry well that way, Just a bit bouncy.

    a strap is no replacement for a swaybar... swaybar doesnt lower your quad it keep your quad from rolling in the corners... but ya a strap will work but you will be alot faster if setup right... they sell lowering kits and also flat track type shocs.. to hep lowering it... alot of small timers like my self used to think just get it low but you will be faster to have suspension and let the bike work with you and not bounce around... ... here is is pic of mine lowered the right way .. and i am a budget racer i dont have over 100 bucks in lowering and tires for my 2 times a yr races....
