The honda axles are good I would not worry about them, But if you had a Yamaha I would there axles always brake. I have friend with a Rubi. w/ HL lift spings ,28" laws, and beats the **** out of it and has no problems. I would would not spend all that money yet.

Combined its more like a 3 1/4 lift. the shocks are compressed in atleast 15%. the balljoints are what is maxed out.

On my 04 450ES Fourman I was running at one time the HL bracket lift kit and also had Progressive lift shocks with the adjustments for height maxed out and I was running 28 Mudzilla's with alum ITP offset rims.I had almost 1000 miles on the OEM Honda axles and never had one break or fail,the LF bearing was the only part I replaced on that atv,it rode like a tractor though,never measured the ground clearance.My new 500 lifted with the HL kit on 27" tires has some mad ground clearance,a ten gallon bucket can fit all the way under untill it hits the rear diff.I may have future axle problems with this bike due to the xtrreme inboard cv angles,I'll ride it hard untill something gives,it is a Honda right!!!!!!!!!
