    Yup, there are the idiots that like to "roll coal" as they call it. I been telling them for years all they are going to accomplish is getting tickets and making stronger pollution laws. I have never been a fan of smoking diesels, none of mine do and I seem to out run/pull the others. My jetta is a consistent 50 mpg getter, the sling is around a consistent 27 mpg getter. So I think a jetta diesel in a sling could give somewhere around 60 to 65 mpg, and be a snappy front wheel drive ride.

    Some time in the past I saw a picture of a forum members sling with five spoke bullitt style wheels on it. Who was it, what was the name of the wheel manufacturer, part number, style number?

    I'm on air shocks and I know I need a stiffer sway/anti-sway bar up front. Just to much lean in the corners when I'm set on soft ride.

    Any tire shop that is in the know use a machine that grips the wheel on the outer edge of the rim. There should be zero pressure on the center or spoke area of the wheel. I seem to remember some other posters that had cracked spokes on their stock rims. You might want to see a dealer and see if they will open a ticket with Polaris.


    Discount does all my tire work. Never had any issue with their work or prices. I do however carry my Slingshot wheels and tires in instead of having them jack and mount dismount them. Usually have the sling down for other work so it is easier for me.

    I could..... But I won't, I'll just say I gotta have more notice..... 36 hours notice and I could have been there 😁 Hope you folks have a great ride

    I understand. I'm juggling time with two family members that are pretty sick and being from way out of the area. Can't really plan to far in advance and just firmed up the date and time with BryanL and SlingLow on Wenesday lunch. Guess I should have posted it then. BryanL and SlingLow have been gracious in bending their schedule around my schedule to do rides with me. I really enjoy the times we get together on rides, great guys, SlingShot family rock.

    Ok, it is official. BryanL , SlingLow and I are taking our wives for the Fruit Loop ride in Hood River. Should be a lot of fun, wineries and fruit and friends, what could be better. Any and everybody is invited to join us. Meeting at the Sinclair gas station at I84 exit 63 at 10:30 am on Saturday 14. Come join us.

    I think somewhere in this thread I promised interior pictures of my Lark trailer. I had it custom built, they just shortened it about two feet. I have had it a couple years now and been from Oklahoma to Oregon/Washington about three times, and other trips to Arkansas and Yellowstone. I pull it behind our fifth wheel, total truck, fifth wheel, Slinshot trailer length is 74.5 feet and about 30,000 lbs. The cost of the trailer is just under 4k, the ramp weight capacity is 2,000 pounds, two axle with brakes on both.


    The black stripe on the ramp is a guide when I load the SS backwards to decrease the tongue weight for the fifth wheel hitch. I load forward for pulling behind the truck.

    Ditto. Mine leaks all the time. So much so I just carry a small bottle of DOT 4 with me. I found mine after warranty was out. Just waiting to winter and i might see if the master is rebuildable.

    Sometimes the way that God heals a person is to take him home, not our choice but His. Know that your son is cured of all sickness and is healthy in his new life. Hopefully you can derive some peace in these words. God bless you and family.
