Check it out guys, GREAT prices from Zbros racing, I would be all over that if I had my Z. I bet you could get the swingarm with linkage, carrier, a-arms and steering stem fro $800 if you buy it all at once.
Just wanted to let you guys know of the great deal.
Anybody have a LTZ/KFX400?? - Suzuki LT-R450 Forum :: LTR450HQ.com

Yea I'm duneripper over there, don't know why I chose that, I made the account before I had the ltr. You guys can call me chino over there, that's what everyone calls me in real life too :lol

Man I wish I still had the ltz to buy all those sweet parts for less than the cost of the a-arms alone!

Btw smokedya2, I tried the 08 cams, I don't have it tuned perfectly yet because I have the stock exhaust and I'm still playing with the PC3 but I can feel and increase in torque, it pulls a bit more on the bottom end. Top end decreased a bit but I think it's because of the stock exhaust. It wont really be a fair comparison until I get a replacement muffler from Yoshimura but an increase in bottom end is noticeable. Thanks buddy!

Just talked to them...this is all Long travel stuff but Im still about to pull the trigger. Looks like I can get the swing arm (+3/4"), linkage, carrier, and an Exit X2 long travel shock setup for my weight for ~$1000. I was about to pull the trigger on a Lonestar swing arm for $750...then later on do a GT Thunder rebuild for ~$400. So I'd be in a standard travel for about $1150 or just drop the coin on a LT setup for ~$1000 right now. Ive got the coin. Now I need someone to talk me into it dropping it.

DO IT! Deals like this don't always come up. Exit shocks are good shocks and the rear shock will be made for your needs. You would be getting a long travel set up for less than a ST set up PLUS you will have a NEW aftermarket shock and not your stock rebuilt shock. You can sell your rear shock and maybe get 50 bucks back. PLUS you don't lose riding time while your shock is getting rebuilt. Do it. :cool:

It's tempting. The whole reason why Im wanting a new swing arm because Ive managed to break 3 adjustment bolts and have gotten sick of the crappy adjustment and know I'll eventually break a case. Heck I bent a shift shaft just this weekend. While it's a hell of a bargain, $1000 is alot of coin to drop on a hobby that just last month I was thinking of getting rid of. I still might hold out for a used standard travel. I'll need to think about it.

I didnt. I ended up buying a Houser long travel swing arm and Elka shock and linkage for about $400 less than what this wouldve cost me.

Awe man. The Houser swinger is a nice piece, bit the service from Nate and the guys at Z-Broz is top notch. I think you'll be happy with your new swingarm provided you get the rear shock set up properly.
