Arrow Round #2

I was going out Wednesday night but Pingel delivery had other plans. Also, battery dead. So I trot down to Space Coast H-D today and purchase Lithium battery and required charger. $298.43. https://ibb.co/D4PfMVM https://i.ibb.co/wgR3VXq/DSCF0020.jpg

Oh, and by the way, this battery weights about as much as a pack of cigarettes.

If this actually turns my bike over I’ll be impressed. According to the numbers it should!

Arrow Wheelie Bars

Looking for some input from anyone running Chicken Sticks. How high have you set wheel height? I have mine set up so when front wheel is 2 inches off ground, before they make contact. Taking the bike out for my birthday, hoping for the 12s without scratching the paint. Had old-timer tell me " If you are on the bars, YOU DON'T WANT FRONT WHEEL TOUCHING THE GROUND"

I like the see the front tire off the ground just enough to know all the weight is transferred. You want to take all the sag out of the front end. It’s just one part of the combo.

Haven’t figured out how to post pics. Mine are around the same length as the wheelbase. They’re just a part of the combination. Everything has to work together. What happens in the frame when the wheels hit is what matters. IMO the bars should help move bike forward more than prevent it from flipping over.
