    I am almost finished with my bolt-on a arm kit. All that I have left is to make the upper shock mount to the frame. This will be a piece of 1" tubing from the tab on the shock hoop, to a clam shell clamp at the frame. And order some longer brake lines. The shocks are 2008 kawasaki kfx450r, the a- arms, spindles, hubs, and disc brakes are from a 2006 suzuki ltz400.

    Looks like a nice conversion. Did you make it or buy it? If you made it you should sell them assuming it works well.

    Well, I picked up my new brake lines for the front disc brakes. I decided to run braided steel lines from the master cylinder to both calipers. They work awesome. I test drove it today in the street and it handles and steers fine. I am hoping to make a quick 1/2 day trip to the desert this weekend. I am wondering if other oddyssey owners would be interested in this set-up, even in today's economy.

    I am looking to purchase a fl350 here in the very near future. And I am not mechanically inclined enough to weld/modify an A-arm setup for my machine when I get it but I would certianly love something I could bolt on. So yes I for one would be definately interested in this. Very nice job BTW !

    It looks very interesting. What kind of cost do you figure? Can the kit use the stock shocks?
    I race, therefore I am
