Shark Fin

14 posts in this topic

Tommorrow I plan on dropping some more $ on skid plate bar clamps and bars. I am up in the air about the shark fins. Is the Scott's worth the $ My second choice is the BRP. PS has anyone run the Pastrana Freestyle bars instead of the Woods bend ?

My experience with shark fins has been that you never notice them until you are cleaning your bike and see all the dings and scratches that could of been your bent disc out on the trail. They are worth every penny. The Scott's is an excellent unit that I have used in the past. I do like the ones that have a removeable fin so you do not have to buy a whole new unit if you damage it.

The Pastrana bars are good for people that stand up all the time. I have used them on my KTM but went back to the woods bend. If you compare the to CR-hi or woods bend they are almost identical just taller. I like the woods bend with taller bar mounts personally.

Mine sure is worth the money.

Probably depends more on where you ride on how crucial having one is. If you ride in rocks a lot then I'd say yes. If you ride out in the dez then I'd say not so much.

Mine dosent look pretty anymore but its been worth its weight.

I ordered a skid plate from GYT-R and they sent me a glide plate. It had some little wings that stuck out to enhance the stock guards but was built out of very thin aluminum. I sent it back and bought a Utah Sportcycle skid plate. Excellent fit and covers EVERYTHING!

When you really look at the options the added cost isn't that much...I went with the Scott's and it's work'in great. Looks good too!

Hey on the deal on the shark fins I had both carbon fiber and the gyt aluminum. If you will be on the motorcross track carbo is fine but if you are trailing it would be a waste.I broke mine and that was a hun that hurt. :D:)
