Tire pitch ????

I have recently made many mods to my daughters race Predator 90. WRHracing motor and suspension upgrades... +3 a-arms, +4 swing arm, elka shocks, Holeshot tires 19x6x10 on the fronts... okay here is my question, everything is on and we are trying to get the tires going straight with the back tires. The left tie rods works pretty well (not great but okay), but the right side the tie rod is too short, it is like the pitch of the tire is too far out. If I get the tie rod on the front tire is not traveling straight it is pointing out. I have tried to adjust the shock spring to make it tighter (more compressed) to push the tire back in and so far that hasn't worked. What should I do? Kind of at a loss!

Re: Tire pitch ????

Call the dealer you bought the parts from and have him walk you through the front end alignment process. The tie rods need to be the correct length for the new a-arms (as well as being equal in length). Try locking the handle bars in the middle position and set the tires in the correct position. Lay the tie rod on top of it's two tie rod ends (don't try to screw it in for this test). If it's the proper length, it should overlap at least 1/2" on each tie rod end. If not, ask your dealer for the correct set.

Re: Tire pitch ????

One more thing, the new a-arms are supposed to come with new tie rods. The OEM's will be too short.
