I once had the layshaft pulley come loose and bind, but only because I didnt put in the correct spacers to seperate them.

Other than that, nothing has gone wrong with it so far.

just curious... what handling benefits do you see in using a shorter front arm?

Tell me, what doesn't become loose after a few hits? I've hit my head quite a bit when I was younger, so I know I've got some screws loose ...

i have not yet broken a steering knuckle, i always make sure that the bottom kingpins are always snug, the top kingpins rarely loosen.

if you always have kingpins loosening (in what ever kits) try replacing them with alum ones... (however, the steering kuckles that came with my BD are pretty tough)

Just a suggestion, I found that if you use the lightweight Ti Kingpins in the bottom of the steering knuckles, they will hold and not loosen up like the stock ones. They also thread better than the stock ones too.

You have to use the top TI kingpins if you use the bottom ones because the spacing is different.

Unless you find a thinner plastic spacer to put at the top.
