ATV TV recently mentioned a modification they preformed on a Brute Force 750 . By changing the factory shocks and tires to Works Performance shocks and radial tires. They lowered the bike by 2 inches and improved riding and handling (Less tippy, better in the curves). Is anyone familiar with this project or made these modifications? Any thoughts pro or con are appreciated.
I too saw that ATV TV test on both the BF750 & Grizz660 with the WORKS Shock upgrade. I did it to my then '05BF750, turned the '05BF into a very comfortable ride & a excellent fast handling Brute. Fun to ride as fast as your skills allowed you to push it, well worth the $1300 I spent for my WORKS.
When I upgraded to the '07BF750, I took those WORKS off of the '05 & installed them on the '007. With the improved Frt end on the '007 & the WORKS shocks, the '007 Brute is a super handling 4wheeler & handles even better than the '05, its amazing what the aftermarket shocks will do for any 4wheeler.
I also have tried different Radial tires, presently I am using the 25" Bighorns, excellent powerslides too on this WORKS Suspended Brute Force..
The shocks look great on your bike...the price really scares me.
I see that you where running Mud Lites on the 05. Why the change?
I have a late model 750 purchased in December 06. It should have the same front end as yours. I have 26" Mud lites all around.
When I went back to ATV TV for more information I found that the mods where done for a rider that weighed under 200lbs ( probably closer to 150) I weigh 255.
I'm probably compressing my suspention a lot more then the rider on the show
Do you think I will benifit with the upgrade at my weight. I also noticed that you changed the tie rods was that also necessary?
