Description: Warn used to make great products... Now their new short throw freespool/engage switch is crap. Mud gets in and you have to take it off and clean it (requires a snap-ring tool, grrr). Buy the RT-30; synthetic rope sucks for colder weather (freezes and pulls out hard in freespool).

Besides that, the winch is great. Always pulls hard. Never fails in water.

Comments: Yeah, it's tight. If you are color-blind don't install this yourself. The contactor requires you to switch cable leads to get the proper length for install (changing the color coded guide).Product: 14" Billet Center Wheel

Description: When carrying additional weight on the rack during long hard rides, the rear rack supports (connected down low and under the seat) WILL break off. This mod helps reinforce the bearing surface of the bolt connection, so shear failure is not an issue.

Purchase Date: 2011-04-04
Purchase Price: $2,628.00
Purchased From: Hard Racing
Purchase Rating: 8/10
Description: Great riding shocks, only complaint is the springs scratch on the inner tubes and now are starting to rust through the powder-coat. Contacted Ohlins, and they didn't seem too concerned :-/

I'll need to send them out to have rebuilt after 2 seasons anyway; therefore new springs.

Installation Cost: $0.00
Installation Rating: 10/10
Comments: Required grinding of my aftermarket Ricochet A-arm skids (on the rear), to clear the springs. Other than that, simple swap of (2) bolts per spring.
