I can guarantee you that you'rebottoming out on the leading edge of the inner fender very badlyno.1bradbeer said:Hi guys, I got these tires in the spring. I noticed these chips coming off of the back tire. they are Avon Storms, what do you think? Anyone seen this before? Should I go back to the dealer and get them to replace it? Thanks, Brad.
1st rule of thumb ..... never ever assumeno.1bradbeer said:****, it is hitting the inner fender. This bike had been lowered when i got it. It is a pita. now what? 1000lb spring? or un-lower the beast? I assume the linkage was swapped out to lower it. where do i get stock linkage? The dealership I guess.
The_Cadfather said:Right now as you have nothing to compare it too and if this is your first Warrior and you are not real familiar with what the stock suspension looks like just take a couple of pics of it and post them up here. Some of the more knowledgeable guys can tell what you have by their apearance and what you will need to put it back stock. And no sense in going to the dealer for the parts as I'm sure a lot of guys may just have the very parts you need collecting dust in their garage. It's worth a shot to try it.

I would suspect that there is an abundance of links (dog bones) and
a fewrelay arms available from members here to bring you back to stock
if req'd. A 1000# spring is no guarantee that this won't happen again!
That's the stock Warrior OEM relay arm untouched.no.1bradbeer said:Well.. here is a photo. I don't see any grind marks, so i assume it is a purchased kit or something. I would rather leave it lowered, i like the look. I'm leaning toward the spring.
