Big Wing for a yz-834b

Post by Dadio » Wed Nov 08, 2017 8:56 pm

I'm looking at an alternative rear wing for my old doggy and I see a lot of pictures of some larger ones , where would I find one as I've never seen them on eBay ? , the current one i have is an RPS reproduction by TBG that's commonly seen for sale on eBay , I'm not sure if it's smaller than the original as I know some TBG stuff comes up a bit small .
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Yes, they are pretty nice.

Yes on a runner an aluminum wing will get bent all to hell. I have two other Thorp wings that are bent in some form or other. The size and shape could easily be replicated in lexan. You could attach the sides with foam tape.
