it will work awesome, brady doesnt know what he's talking about... :wink: :twisted:

i have bshells up front, and something very similar to the lahaye setup in the rear(actually so does brady), its amazing. my setup doesnt have as much travel (9"), but its basically the same. crazy nice ride 8O

oh ya and if you have the money go with the stavrons instead of the bshells.

Arn't Stavrons only $200 more than bombshells? :idea: Stavrons and the Layhaye set-up would work fine, cause they told me their set-up would work with BBR-SP5s, they have 3 different shock towers 8)

yea dirty is right, you can even use the lahaye long travel set up with sotck forks there are three different mounting towers you can get and josh will help you out, no matter what you have up front the lahaye rear will sit level when yo usit on it as long as you tell him what you have first. i would say stavron, but if you dont wanna swing hte extra 200 or whateve go wit the bombshells

My racer Garrett Iwanniki raced with the Bombshells and Lahaya set up He loves it. it works awsome with 11 inch travel rear end it glides threw the woop sections and and soaks up the huge 60 foot tables . I still think the Stavrons would be a better choice for forks but either way you go the travel combo works great .



I just want to say Lahaya 's set up is great Josh got the valving on the shock to work better than any other prostyle swingarm out there no bouncing pogo sticks like the BBR pro frame so for the money its a great choice

Thats a personal oppinion of mine .



The Elka shock is better than the poopohla they had but I'am not convinced yet that the Elka is the final answer to there problem still seems not to have rebound and compression ratio's dialed in but BBR is a great bike builder and R&D is just that R&D just because they sell it to the public does not mean it is perfected just satisfactory for public use trust me BBR is not finished with there set up they will constantly work to perfect it thats the nature of motorsports to evolve and BBR knows that.



PS. remember personal oppinions are just that personal
