I would have to say +2, +3.



The longer swingarm you get, the wider your turning radius is.



I havn't tried many swingarms. Only 5-0. BBR Super Pro. Sano. Sik50s (new and old). Im gonna be getting a new one from Vince @ RC Motorsports, and from the sounds of it, its gonna rock.



I wouldnt really suggest the BBR SUPER PRO frame. I didnt care for it much, specially for the money.



Billetware ones..

Sano.

Sik50s.

Five-o



are the top pics so far. Cant wait to get my new setup though.

i think for those with a big income go with the storm, but for me i like the lahaye because its cheeper for me cuz i already have an ishock, plus if you ever have to get a replacement shock ishocks are alot cheeper than fox shocks, ive neve ridden the storm but i have ridden the lahaye and ill tellyou nothing soaks up the woops and small bumps like this set up, i am real interested in testin out the storm one tho

i would say the lahaye is better for anyone. not only is it cheaper but has more travel, i think there top mount looks better too. actually for people who have the original bbr's or some other shorter fork, i guess the storm would be better, just to have it sit level. other than that i would say the lahaye is the superior setup :wink: 8)

my new set up will be + 2 1/2-3 1/2 it will look like the pro set up but you will be able to use the shock you allready have 9-10 inch eye to eye. just with slightly heavier spring rate but not too heavy that it is a bouncer or over preloaded so don't have rebound controll .I will be finishing this set up when I get back from overseas.
