hey hoolies,
Bent a right lower control arm this weekend and was wondering if anyone has one laying around, It's blue in color. Looks like the raptor 700 shares the same control arm. let me know,
Thanks Rick.

I'll check when I get home, Tucker Rocky sent me 5 - 3 inch thick catalogs, but I remember thumbing through and seeing a bunch of Raptor A-arm stuff from Laeger and other companies. I can make some gaurds if you get the arms from us and I have em shipped here first. If you come up with a stock replacement or another alternative I'll send you some scrap UHMW pieces and you can cut them out yourself to fit and I'll give you some pointers on how to bend them up and around the arms.

you might get a hold of Duane, he's got a hookup in San Diego for extended arms and shocks for a pretty good deal.

thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

What about arms off a 660? I still have a Top & Bottom A-Arm assembly from Nate. If so, Larry can put you in touch with Nate and go from there.

he got the setup on his 700 and I've been considering it as well - a very nice setup and it was pretty affordable.

not sure if i can fit the quad on the second level of my trailer if I had long travel:(

Nice thanks Bob.

Ended up in a meeting last night that went to 11:00... Check here:

Tucker Rocky (http://www.powersportrider.com/cgi-bin/zcatjpg)

Go to 09 ATV catalog and suspension and they carry Elka, Houser, Lonestar blah blah blah. Figure my cost is about 30-40% off retail depending on item. Only thing is you may have to by both upper and lower arms?" Might be able to buy just lower though, there was a lot of pages of stuff there. Stock a-arm from Yamaha is probably $200 though. They do make a bunch of arms that will run with stock length shocks...

It does look slightly bent at the lower spring perch but probably doesn't affect anything.

I think I still have my stocker set if you ever decide to hit a rock again, might of sold them, but I'll look when I get home in a few weeks, even though you already fixed, always nice to know of a backup source.

Thanks, was close today to needing parts, including parts for my body. Had a good(Bad) crash today out riding with Terry. I will keep you in mind for the future.
