I ordered it today, I am getting it from Turner Cycles. I talk at length with Daniel Turner about them. He said they tested w/ 4 28x12 mudzillas on it and it was better than a stock rincon gearing wise. He also said it was still squatting the rear end in 3rd gear w/ the zillas on. Crazy huh. I will let you know how it turns out when I get them.

So you've bit the bullet huh? I have talked & visited with Daniel
myself at great lengths. I probably kept askin' the same ol' stupid
questions over & over. You oughta' bite the bullet & get him to
custom build you a lift. They are excellant. He builds everthing
from the ground up. They are not cheap though.

Price was $425 and hopefully in a couple of weeks I will have 'em
This should solve the biggest complaint from the honda flag model ATV. No low gear. Now U don't need a belt drive to get a mudder.

Well here is another update. My buddy John Cannon, Of mud and dirt got his gear installed on his rinny and I got to see them in a few tests. I cannot say much because I have been sworn to secrecy, but the gears do work and they are very difficult to install. With good traction, I saw John have to sit ALL the way on the gas tank when he hit the throttle and the front end still jumped into the air. My rinny will not wheelie without a little help, me pulling up on the bars, His instantly wheelied. Now his bike is a bit worn out, needs rings and was suffering froma severe oil leak, which caused him to start slipping the tranny, HE lined up against my rincon. I wasn't riding, as we wanted to get an equal weight race. Both rincons were raced with 28 inch tires. His sick rincon immediatly jumped ahead, but my rincon quickly caught up and because we have a stock higher gear the stock geared rincon, beat the geared rincon. Now John did do some towing tests and some race tests against himself, but I cannot divulge the results until his article in mudders mag is published. So, from what we can see the gears do work, the most noticable is the gearing down low, We will have to wait a little while longer to see it in the mud till he gets his oil leak fixed then I will get some pics of it going thru the mud. Maybe my gears will show up and I can do my own comparison.
