cant decide between Pitster and Xtreme

Recommended Posts

This topic has turned into a pissing match... Of coarse vince is going to back his product and if pit racer is a extreme dealer then he will back his bikes too... What we want is replies from riders who buy their bikes and are not bias in either way.. I own a honda and i have friends that have extremes and friends that have a pitster.. Have seen problems on both.. Also have seen the extremes get better through out the couple of years they have been around.. The pitsters are new this year.. So only time will tell how they fair.. Hopefully good.. Why dont you ride one and see if you like it.... :banghead:

Forgot one thing - I've heard some bikes don't even come w/ a manual - The Pitster comes w/ a manual and a schematic breakdown for the parts :banghead:

does the xtreme crIII come with those???

Why are you guys bashing each other when the pitster and the extreme have practically the same motors. the only difference I see is the swing arm on them.

Personally I would go with the Pitster because it is cheaper and not much difference between the too.

I've got an 05 CR11 and so far its been great. Shock blew out after (3) rides but I expected that. Put a Works Performance on for now. Added A 26mm carb also. I'm 6'2" and 195lbs., so I ride it within reason and it holds up fine so far. Alot of my research before buying was internet, magazine tests, and actually going to the tracks and seeing what people ride. I felt the Extreme was the best choice. (so far) :banghead:

is it possible to change the swingarm on the 06 pitster 125? like with a regular conventional A-frame swingarm?

Pretty sure thats a "no", pretty much the only flaw with the bike IMO.

if you get an xtreme get it from Guy Cooper himself. I've personally seen what he does when he sells a bike. He doesn't just take them out of the crate and set them on the floor, he gives them a proper first service before they go out the door. Email me at Racerx930@yahoo.com if you want one and I can hook you up with him. He seems to be somewhat cheaper than some of the other prices I've seen.

TECH UPDATE

REAR SUSPENSION SYSTEM

The newly released rear suspension system on the PITSTER PRO 125 bikes is an engineering innovation

this system has a compound leverage ratio and cantilevered shock angle that provides a rising rate rear suspension with out the need for linkages or progressive springs and valving

Once set up for a riders skill level and weight the new rear suspention will provide good traction and ground contact on small bumps as well as absorbing big landings with out bottoming

are u still able to change it though?

like just bolt on a regular one and go?

would there be any problems tho? like do i have to weld or cut stuff or anything?

That all depends on what swingarm or shock you're going to put on.

Have you ridden the '06 Pitster?
