    Other than lift kits and shocks and spring combo's I don't know of anyone offering anything in the suspension department as of yet.

    I have seen where that are a few advertising upgrades but when you go to the companies web page nothing. I really don't see a big offering in this reguard. Had Honda made the Big Red more like a Rhino or even a Ranger then I think the aftermarket comapnies would be more on board but the Big Red is so big and slightly under powered compaired to the rest, no clutch kit will cure the Big Reb, that they just don't see any demand or profit for themselves.

    I wrote Elka Shocks to find out if they will be offering a replacement shock for the Big Red in the Utility shock line-up and got a big fat "NO".

    FOUND THIS LIFT Gorilla Stage-1 Honda Big Red Lift Kit - MotoXMall BY GORILLA. SEEMS TO BE THE MOST DURABLE AND COMPLETE KIT OUT THERE SO FAR. ANYONE HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS KIT?

    My BR has no suspension mods whatsoever (yet). I also run stock tire/wheel set on my BR. The works shocks shown earlier in the thread look like the way to go for shocks/springs and the Gorilla lift kit is certainly the nicest one I’ve seen to date. The question I have is this, MotoXmall has the kit for $273.95 while the Gorilla-axle.com has the kit listed for $397.78 why so much difference? A $106.78 difference kinda makes one wonder.
    All of us talking on this forum will allow us to see where to get the items we need. To say BR is pure utility is not correct. Honda Foreman/Rancher/Rincon fall into that category also and there is certainly aftermarket upgrades for those. A few years from now when there are more units in operation I’m guessing there will be more items available. Until then we make/modify our own parts. Share our ideas and enjoy our rides.

    I used to be a dealer for Memphis Car Audio, and I could sell a Memphis Belle Amp for ~$700. However if you went to Memphis Car Audio themselves, bypassing a dealer, your price would have been ~$1100. I'm guessing that Gorilla gives big breaks to their dealers allowing them to make some money.

    Hello all,
    I just joined the forum and recently bought a 2010 camo Big Red. I am looking for information on lift kits. I see that some of you have been using them for awhile. Could you please review the product you are using and if you have any issues related to that product.
    Thanks, BR
