I am more worried about the elkas not being up to par than the arms and swingarm, i did alot of asking and everyone recomended elkas i just hope i dont regret not getting axis.

I considered the walsh but i was talking to a national pro racer that was testing diferent arms and he told me the walsh were junk that they sent him , thats why i didnt go with them although he was testing and im sure the ones they have out now are alot better he will be runing walsh this year the first set he got were the ones he was talking about .

LMAO what ever pro told you that,he obviously is an idiot. I have never ever heard one negitive thing about them.Qalsh is probly the best a-arm set up,they have alot of adjustments they are right next to the laegers T-pin. Walsh would be my #1 choice then#2 Laegers and #3 LSR

this may sound petty, but the fact that they cant chrome my upper arms is really a turn off. nate did say there is a great chrome guy near by. im gonna call them in a while, see if they can get them chromed and then ship them to me finished.

i agree walsh is good but 1000+ for a-arms is reatarded IMO when you can get herrmann for 300 less and they are awesome.

And also i hate when people say companys are junk when they have not even tried out there products. Like all of you might say Walsh is the best. If you havent tried Herrmann then you might not know........all the guys who say Walsh is better and havent tried herrmann are just going by what people have said about them. And that is just retarted to do that.... They are great guys making a living off of this and all you guys are saying is they are junk......it pisses me off...........


Herrmann deals elka to. So elka should be good on those a-arms str400ex

here is our dale and 400ex w/ Herrmann a-arms

I can tell you that the pro that told me that does alot of testing of different setups to see what works best , the first set they sent him he did not like most likely the first few ones they made . The price and quality of product is why i went with herrmanns I would of liked to have purchesed Roll or walsh but i dont see that they are $300 dollars better than the herrmans. Shawn Reardon

I spent hours and hours trying to decide what setup to get. I've got Janssen Racing A arms and swing arm on the way, with Elka Elite shocks, which to me appear to be the best shocks you can get right now. High and low speed compression. No other ATV shock that I've seen even offer this. Plus my Janssen products have a lifetime warranty. Why pay more for a name and no warranty? IMO. It might feel good to have the same arms as pros or whatever, but how is it gonna feel to have to buy a replacement arm? (An expensive arm, too)

Those herman arms look pretty nice.

I wouldnt worry about Elka's not being "up to par". If something bothers you or is off just a little, call Elka and talk to them. They're good at getting you set up right.


Lifetime warranty- Janseen A arms + swing arm + Lonestar axle = almost bulletproof
I cant find a steering stem with a lifetime though, Let me know if there is one.
