Anybody have any experience with this kit?
It is a difference of night and day.Before I put mine in I could not spin 26" tires(with locker)now I have 28" mudzillas and I cant stop them it was the best mod I ever purchased highly recommended DO ITP.S. I hate turner cycles they take too long for shippingfrom what ive read,everyone says it dosent make a big diffrence and was a waste of money
I have been hearing this for over a year now. They always say its coming out soon. I would like to know what they think the meaning of soon is.just wait Gorilla Axle will have theres out in not long and you wont have to dig into the motor/tranny
I do have the gear reduction... I can tell you a few things about them..
1st.. It does help turn large tires better.. But I never had a real problem turning 28 EDLs on the rincon anyway.
2nd.. It does not make the bike any faster out of the hole. A non geared rincon will still outrun a geared rincon.
3rd. In auto mode the trans does get confused with the reduction and tends to hunt for the correct gear.. Now that is just in Auto mode.. In ESP it shifts when you want it too. Speedo is off some also.
4th I have seen one of the gears explode, taking out pretty much everything. When the gear went to pieces, the metal pumped all through the motor thus ruining everything in its path.. Other people that I know have not had any problems out of them.. I have hear of newer rincons (680's) with gorilla lift,pipe, tuner and reduction spinning 20.5 laws.. I haven't seen this but have heard of it..
Now the big question.. Would I do it again.. Sorry but the answer is no. For the money to buy this product, the VERY time consuming install (You basically have to back half the bike.), The unknown longterm durability, And still only being able to turn a 28. Definetly not worth it.. As for Gorilla. Their reduction is going to be great.. No going into the trans or motor.. You could leave the bike completely stock and turn 29.5's. They have run into some troubles along the way but it is in testing.. I will get to see it in action this weekend as Gorilla will be running it at boggin in the dirty south in MS this coming weekend.
Hope this helps. I hope I didn't offend anyone by this post.. These are things that I have found by my experiances and a few others that I know and ride with.
