    Top is a blaster spindle set at 2-3 degrees camber. To get that I put the upper heim at 3 turns out and lower heim at 8 turns out.
    Bottom pic is a banshee spindle. Upper heim is 9 turns out lower heim is 0 turns out.

    With the banshee spindle there is a loss in steering!

    With the blaster spindle there is no loss in steering. The steering stem flag hits the frame steering stop!

    ive got yfz450 spindles on my blaster with the ASR long travel arms, with balljoints instead of heim joints. it turns pretty good, but my camber is off quite a bit. I will try and post some pics for comparision.

    Is there a certain year yfz450 spindle to use? Do all the banshee and blaster hydro parts fit the yfz spindles?

    I think 04 up to 09, or when ever they changed to the yfz450r, is a little different. my brother bolted on yfz450 calipers on his banshee no problem and is a really nice brake upgrade. I think I bought 06 spindles/hubs off ebay for mine.
