Does anyone have any experience with these brand A-Arms?  

I need to replace the arms on my "R" and these two brands are all over eBay.  They are both +2 +1 but I am not sure if I want to go with a +2 +1.  Ideally I do not want to go over +1 but these offer both camber and caster adjustments where most others in this price range and above do not.

I can order LSR +1 arms for around 500 or have custom JD Performance ones made (in any length), regular or maximum ground clearance for around 475 - 550.

Any input or experiences with these products is welcomed.

Both great companies IMO. American star is made in USA and there a bunch off good people. Really solid stuff. I haven't had any issues with my hd tierods for 4 years. There about the only thing that has lasted.
Full flight has some cool looking arms. My buddy had them on his lt250r in blue and they were really nice.
I like both but I feel I'd go with full flights for the looks

The reason for the new arms is that the lower ball joints are not replaceable on the R's.  Could not freaken believe it.  I am not sure if I want to go with a +2 +1 though.  It will definitely be more stable, and I do not ride tight trails so I guess it would be okay but this more of an MX arm.


And I cant send my shocks off to be serviced until I figure out what arms I will be running.

What to do, what to do...

I think I would go with the asr I think from what I read their joints seem to hold up the longest. +2 +1 is the way to go I think unless it is too tight for tight woods. Everywhere else it will be amazing. If you still want to keep it as narrow as possible run some 4/1 wheels on those +2 arms.

I already have some 4/1 wheels. It looks like ARS are chomoly where Fullflight is dom tubing.  If I am not mistaken chromoly would be better (both are the same thickness).

I've heard good and bad about them.  Not sure what to think to be honest (my local shop had a hard time dealing with them for a warranty issue).  The blems are a decent price but the think the ASR have heavier duty components. 

ASR has the brake lines, tie rods with ends and camber/caster adjustable arms for 539.00.  Still more than I want to pay but it is a pretty complete package.

eah that is the very one I would be looking at also. Those items add up fast when you need to get them later. I have heard of a few folks having issues with burgard not fixing things. I have never heard of an issue with asr that was not taken care of right away.

I'd vote JD arms.  I've got a set on my LTR and like them.  The adjustment system is super easy and you can get them in any color you want at no extra charge.  He's also great to talk with on the phone if you have any questions.  He knows his stuff.

JD makes great products.  I really like the MGC's but the lead time on them stinks.

American star is a solid company I run their tie rods over Walsh because I like them better, also if your ends go bad they'll replace them for free, atleast they did for me. Fantastic customer service . Can't vouche much for jd as I don't know anything about them.

Here's another option....Jody Bateman Racing. He's up near
me, and has built arms and swingers for the 250Rs for many
years. He be a good one to talk to, and may have some stuff
still lying around.
