on the rear is OK for the light duty rider but on the front it throws the geometry way off from the shocks to breaking,,, it's a no briner no spacers on the front.

I never got around to putting them on the rear (nor front for that matter) so i can't say for sure but suspect for moderate riding they'd be ok (to your point Shadey). I rode with a few people that had them on their kfx in the dunes and didnt get any negative feedback.

A few of my friends that race with me run wheel spacers front and rear and haven't had any problems and they race hard. But I believe that they are buying their time until something breaks.

G-force makes extended hubs for 90 bucks, I would think that would be stronger than spacers. JMO

Other things that may help. Lowering the center of gravity on the bike, slow down the rebound and compression in the front and proper tire pressure.

if u use wheel spacers you bend your axel, ive done it...
and extended hubs break, they are made of aluminum.[/b]
Yeah, one of my friends I mentioned before who hadn't had any problems with them yet, just bent his axle last race.
