Re: pipe and other questions for the raptor!!!!????
If I were you I wouldnt gear both the front and rear , I would only go with the rear , I think by gearing both you will have it geared way to low, it has tons of bottom end power anyway! and if you go smaller with the front , you will wear out the chain guide faster and its hard on chains, plus you wont have to go bigger on tires, HeLL run the stock tires till there worn out then get the MAXXIS RAZR's thats what I'm doing and I realy like the stock RADIALS now that I'm widend
As far as the pipe , I went with GYT-R , but from what I here , there isnt that much of a differance from one to another (not like a 2 smoke)
now as far as the swing arm , Personaly , I want to go 2" not 4" but if you do decide to gear it front and rear , then you will want to go 4" , and NO it wont hurt its trail ability by widening it, it will help , you will be able to power slide easier, and you will corner faster, without tipping
Ride hard, Lifes short
