Will bracing keep the nun from bending so easy? I am waiting for parts and wondering if I should order the braces.
The way that the nun bent and where it bent, it seems that bracing would not have helped.06MXZXRenegade800 said:That motors not even show worthy, that things a boat anchor now
But really, what the heck did you expect for an answer?
That proves that they help but not worth the time and $$ IMO.pat2724 said:I had 04 440 REV and hit a rock with the left hand side that was flush to the snow going about 20 mph and bent the nun and lower A arm. I talked to Mike Murphy at Ingles Performance about it and he said all the race sled have bent nuns and they change them at the end of the year. That was last year.
I was thinking the same thing. No amount of bracing would have helped.06MXZXRenegade800 said:it all depends on what your doing i guess, no ammount of bracing will save you if you plow into a boulder buried in the snow!
What braces should be added to a non x??gman086 said:LOL!
Ya'll can do what ya want but I would NEVER ride without the added braces if you jump or boondock at all (especially the shock tower brace - if you don't bend that then you aren't going big - I can ASSURE you!!!) And FWIW the new generation of aftermarket aluminum A-arms are stronger than stock but are designed to BREAK at abrupt impacts before trashing the Nun - one of the beauties of aluminum if you know ANYTHING at all about metallurgy.
I ordered every front end brace I can. Seems to me that we need to choose between weight and stringth.boddyman66 said:Will bracing keep the nun from bending so easy? I am waiting for parts and wondering if I should order the braces.
