Ok I readjusted the bands today and took it out into the bean field and drove around for 30 minutes and all seemed fine. 5 1\2 inches of stick travel so Iím goin with it. Rode it hard enuff to start melting the muffler into the lower body!!!  Not cool
Thanks for your help on this👍🏻👍🏻

Does one side have more travel than the other?
The only adjustment I would do right now is to make them the same.
Then drive it like a rental. dance dance dance dance
Just a hair maybe Whipper. I thought I had like 6 inches of travel and now itís 8.
I would shorten that 8Ē down to at least 6Ē maybe even 5.
I keep Godzilla at about 4Ē of travel.
It will be a little easier to drive.

Thanks Whipper. I will readjust this soon. If it gains a bunch more travel Iím gonna jerk it out and see wth.
Thanks

I donít normally mess with them until first oil change. 50 hr+-   Yes they usually change a bit right away especially the heavy metal ones. I believe they straighten a little on the ends when put into use. Run it and have fun.

Just a hair maybe Whipper. I thought I had like 6 inches of travel and now itís 8. Seems to work just fine but more travel than I want. I just ripped around for another 20 minutes pretty hard and measured again and itís the same so maybe Iím just overreacting a little bit.
Thanks
