    X-Maxx Wheelie Bar

    Anyone try one of these? Do they work better or worst than stock or get in the way?

    I have one of this, the material os good and strong, and the srings do the work, the extra plus is, the wheels are greater than stock and the wheelie bar is longer than stock too. Other advantage is the possibility to put skate wheels on it, it's easy to make the mod.

    See the post #1701 and #1805 in this thread:

    Do you have to drill out the holes to make big enough for the skateboard axle or is it the same size

    Is the same size, it works, and you can use the same nuts came with the skate axle.
