I got this from another member here a while back. As you can see from the pics, the front tires are canted quite a bit. There seems to be a second set of holes in the lower arms. Can anyone say FOR SURE that it would be ok to use these holes to correct the cant in the tires? I don't see any other means of adjustment. Any advise is welcome. I know that taking it to a shop would solve the problem, but this seems like a simple issue that I would like to avoid throwing needless money at.





Thanks!!
Matt

I think you would have to get a different shock to let it seat into that hole right... otherwise your shock housing will hit the flanges... what it looks like at least

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

Thanks guys. It tracks fine. I was more worried about tire wear. I guess I'll just ride it and like it the way it is.

Again, Thanks!!
Matt

Whats it look like when you set on it? It may just be from no added weight. But to answer your question, it doesn't appear that you can because of the shock body

They set it like that from the factory to compensate for added weight of rider and gear at that point it will fix the cant.

Look at the "clean" pattern on your tires. They don't look to be wearing unevenly. I'd leave them alone.

Factory design. I have owned 4 of these , great little four wheelers and they all looked like that.

Don't touch it. It is fine.

Every 220 and 250 I ever saw, including showroom new, was set up like that.
