I have the opportunity to get my hands on the Xlecaliber axle for a decent price. Is this a good axle? Is installation easy? I am buying it used, with the warranty cards still blank. The axle looks brand new. Complete with all spacers and everything. It says its 0to+3. Heard a rumor there was a change in design, is there a prefferabe design?
Thanks
AC

Excellent axle. The change was in the rear hub. If it has been mounted you should be ok.

lsr axles r great. stay away from durablues, cuz they bend and b=reak easier and the warraty isnt as good. the first time free replacement and after that $175 for the durablues

Great axle, I have one on my Z after I bent two crappy stock axles. Denton will sell it for $319, thats about as low as you will find it brand new, so use that as a comparison for your haggling. The warranty cant be beat, its great. No regrets.

i have owned both. bent my durablue on a small jump. and i know that the warranty sucks. also have a friend u broke his durablue. i now have a lsr with no problems and the warranty is a true lifetime warranty for original purchaser.

everyone is right durablue = crap and lsr is a very good axle. I never saw a lsr bend or break but a lot of durablue did

The rpm can be +2/+4 but the lsr +1/+3 longer than stock

I'm pretty sure it's 0 to 3. I love mine, it's really a great axle!

LSR Axle Question

I figure some of you guys will have the answer....

I just put a LSR axle on my Z400. Do I need to use the washers that were between the hub and the axle nut on the stock axle? In other words, on the LSR Axle do I need to use the stock washer between the hub or spacer and the new LSR Axle nut?

I don't think so, but just thought I'd get confirmation.

Many thanks.

yeah

lonestar makes axles 4 everything durablue is a little weaker but I have had problems with lsr also when you race sometimes the lips on the jumps through you and you dont have time to staigthen the bike in the air. I have had less problems with the lsr though. 8)

I've used Lonestar axles on 250R's and X's for years. The only complaint I've ever had is with excess chrome plating found in the hub splines. Other than that, a quality product. RPM's are fine quality, too.
