I finished putting on an e.13 DRS and my new Z-150. Crap it was a pain in the @$$ to remove the drive side cup on my BB. I had to remove the left side cup completely, spray it with lube, and then gently hammer my wrench with a mallet every fifteen minutes for two hours... then she slid right off.

Those e.13 instructions are not written very well at all, I just figured it out by guessing and the pictures... I see what everyone was complaining about. Now I have to do my room mates DRS.

Warranty? F that!

how's the X3 with a Z150 ?

do you know if the frame is still under warrenty when putting a 6" fork ?
Well, this is a funny story... I called my dealer and asked him. He said no. He asked why I would want a 6" fork on the front, and "was I racing it?" In other words, the guy was totally clueless. I am not sure he even understood what bike I was talking about.

So, I emailed Haro's warranty department my question (I also wanted to know about dual crowns). They sent me a number to call.

I call Haro's headquarters and talk to their warranty rep. He tells me I can do either (most dealers don't know this), but he cautioned me about putting too much travel in the front, since I only have six in the back. He steered me to the Z-150.

I have no clue how it rides, since I just put it on, but I will know this weekend. I'll keep you posted.

BTW my [email protected] LBS used blue lock tite on every fricken threaded part they got their hands on.

I think you will like the Z-150. I have a 03 Haro Ex3 and it has a much slacker HT angle than the 04. The 03 can't handle DC but the 04 sure can.
