Hello everyone, as I introduced myself yesterday, I have been working with this project for 18 years and now I am going back to it again ... The first thing I need to know, because I am unable to remember if it is standard link or cr 500 link. Can you help me? I need to know to buy the swingarm
Ok, let me see if I understand ...
In this frame I can mount standard swingarm with the original rods in the part that I round or I can order a swingarm no link and mount it directly as in the photo of Bill's quad ...
It is right?
What is the best option in your opinion?
Do you have any link or photo where I can see the cr500 link system in the trx?
That swingarm won't work, it's got an offset shock position for mounting a Laeger cR500 link frame. I would skip the No-link since you are in spain. You likely won't find a good one or anybody to ship it. Just go with a Stock aluminum 88/89. As far as your brakes - Laeger made spindles that use 250R and 400ex brakes. If it's 250R, find some used calipers, if it's 400ex, go for the yfz since they bolt up to 400ex and have dual piston. I don't have any 400ex so I can't tell you if that is a 400ex measurement.

Hello everyone, after almost two years without doing much to the quad I have taken it up again with the idea of finishing it this year already.....
I am enclosing some photos and I would appreciate your help with the shock absorbers... I want to buy some front foxes and I would like to know what the ideal size is---17" maybe?
Is that a Laeger ProTrax front end? And a no-link swingarm?
Your best bet would be to call Fox (or any other shock manufacturer) and/or the a-arm and swingarm manufacturer to see what they would recommend. Alternatively, you could ask the shock manufacturer was measurements they need to build the correct length shocks, typically shocks removed with frame 1.5” off the ground and then with the frame 12” off the ground. Note that this process would be used to determine both the front and rear shock lengths.
For some reason, 19.25” sticks out in my memory for long travel Laeger, but you will want to have that confirmed.
