As many of you know, I'm thinking of picking up a new 5 Spot. But whats this? They require 1.25 HS? Damn, now I have to get a new HS to replace my already bullet-proof, expensive King!

I don't know anything about these new HS. Do I get a reducer, new HS, or what? I don't see the purpose of this new size either. Please shed some light my way.

Its a 1.125 HS....thats 1 1/8. You must of misread something. You can still use your King HS. The Spot uses very universal parts.

Now go out and buy one and stop worring about every part. You know you can get all the answers right here.
Cheers!
Opps, my bad. Ahh, back to earth. Now if I could just find the cash to get one of these puppies or a have a used one pop up, then all would be well and fine.

Lol!

I have an old Manitou HT with a 1 1/4" hs with spacers, but the Spot fits a regular 1 1/8 in just fine :^)

I wanna Stinger too and an '06 5 Spot!
