It is my understanding that A/c went to a cast iron rear knuckle. I have not had the opportunity to look at one yet, How do they look?
I have the same knuckle in aluminum (like the 650's & 700's) but with the built in caliper mounts. I have broken 4 so far, (1 put me on my roof) two stock and two gusseted. I am trying to get my hands on a couple of the cast iron ones now, but A/C hasn't released them yet.
To my knowledge no one is producing a billet knuckle as of yet. I am wondering if the new ones look like they are going to hold up or not. Any pics would be TRUELY appreciated! But opinions without pics are welcome..

Thanks..
Just found out Arctic Cat is going to release them on the 29th of Jan.. I just need to know if they are going to be sufficient or if they are modable, so I know wether or not to have some made..

They are cast iron and much heavier than the aluminum ones. If your worried about weight, it might not be a good ideal but the strenght is there.

Haa ha weight.. That ship sailed! I want strength, I will give up the extra 10lbs or whatever they are.. Thank you for replying.. I just want to know that they are ok in their stock form and dont have to be modified!

Ive looked at them and they look similar. Nice to have out board brakes to. Arctic cat said no sales until late feb.

I have the stock cast aluminum knuckles on my new XTX 700. Should I be concerned about these breaking? I do not race, just trail ride, but sometimes rocky.

I have broken several, and I have seen several others broken. And yes at least 3 that I know of did not have long travel. It all depends on how hard you play. If you are rough, I would def change them out.

I looked at the rear spindels and they look real close like they might work for us. Having outboard brakes would be cool. add a turning brake setup for the dunes.
