type of kits became available right after quads
started outselling 3-wheelers. While this kit did
offer the option of converting back to three wheels
others, like the Astro were offered as a weld-on
kit. The idea was a good one but since the frame
geometry wasn't designed for the weight balance
these kits never handled as well a manufactured
quad and most ended up reverting back to three wheels
I DO NOT SELL THESE KITS!
These kits are
longer being produced and were junk when
they were still in production. Sure, they worked
fine for putting around the back yard and letting
your first timer friends ride around an oval track,
but anything else more aggressive was pure disaster.
The a-arms were too short, the shocks were junk
and riders eventually got tired of repairing them
and went back to three wheels. Besides, they looked
really stupid too!
Take my advice and do
not screw up your three wheeler with one of these
kits. Even if you somehow found one on eBay or other
auctions. When these kits were new they were selling
for over $2000. Fix up your existing three wheeler,
sell it online or in your local trader publication,
and combine it with the money you would have spent
on the kit towards a used quad of similar power.
You will be much, much, much better off in the long
run and still be able to buy replacement parts.
I don't mean to trash
this kit, or other ones like it, but I get many
e-mails from readers who think I either sell these
kits or know of someone who does. I have first-hand
experience with this type of kit being used on the
250R, Tecate and Tri-Z and all of them, including
myself, regretted the money wasted. It was a good
idea but never got very popular due to reliability
issues and customer injuries.
