IliumWorks SportBoards for LT?
Does anyone use the IliumWorks SportBoards for the LT? I purchased the Suburban Machinery lowering kit, and while I LOVE the new position of the pegs, the design looks dangerous to me - it creates essentially a large lever that will cause the whole assembly to come up in the event of contact. I have already scraped the pegs a lot in normal riding my first week, and while I have not experienced the rear wheel "hop" alluded to by others, I know it will come when I least expect/want it to, perhaps with the wife on the back.
I have been looking at other solutions, and saw the IliumWorks SportBoards for the LT. Has anyone tried both these and the Suburban Machinery lowering kit? Are people that have the SportBoards happy with them on their LT? Does it have a similar behavior to the Suburban kit if they scrape too severely?
Thanks for your opinions.
