    XAM suspension modifications

    I have an oldie but goodie 2007 XAM-1 and got these ideas from searching the forums and the net. I stiffened up the Bell Crank arms with a metal spacer (covered by a decorative black vinyl hose). The spacer is attached by two allen head bolts for a clean look.

    The second mod was to install larger bearings by the upper pivot points. A larger bolt and larger bearing was fitted.

    The results was a much stiffer rear triangle. I used to by able to push the triangle by hand and see the flex. Now the flex is all but gone. The mods were somewhat time consuming, figuring out what parts would fit and how to get them to work, but with some time and ingenuity it was worth it.
