Question RSD and LSD ?

Besides the swing arm what are the diffrances in the frame between a LSD and a RSD ? Can you put a RSD swing arm on a LSD frame?

It's a completely different set up. And ya Can't mix em. So unless you plan to run a 250mm or bigger tire there is no need to get a RSD Frame.

ON a Big tire RSD You can Position the Motor and Trans down the centre of the Frame..
For a LSD big tire this shit gets positioned to the Left and you still need spacers extended shafts etc. And blalnce is affected. Most folks will shrug it off and say they have a Huge tire LSD and it handles fine.
When I was 5 Balance was Bike riding 101 . Nothing is changing that rule.

Notice Belt will run clear of frame so ya don't have to pull the frame apart to feed a new belt . Notice r side lower arm is a gap thats the removable spacer to allow quick belt Change.
IHC is redoing the Oil tank and it will have a Belt guard molded into it.
At IHC yesterday and Spyied Preston's new Cobra Pro Street Ouch thats one bad Puppy .

OK I do have one issue with my Frame.
Notice in pic shock mount on swingarm. They did'nt mover it over when they set up for the RSD OOPS. So it 0.38"
to the left side and not in alignment with the mount under the motor mount.

Don't forget I have Frame #001 IHC has since address this
It's a NoBrainer to fix. And IHC will have me a new one to install today
I post update to my thread later.
