had a bit of a slide...just inquiring

Hey guys.... as most of you know, I just got my Helibars and put them on on Monday... this morning on my way to work, I was making a right turn (nothing stressful, just a right turn) and my front tire washed a bit.... I was wondering if this was directly related to my helibars taking alot of weight off the front end or if it was likely that there was a bit of sand or something in the road (as there is many times in So. Illinois)??? insight would be appreciated...

i wouldn't think its related to the heli's but rather debris on the road but i've been wrong once before.

i completely agree with BD. the helibars should have NO affect on the front end feeling like it washed out.

I concur with the above comments.
But you might want to check you suspension setup again, mine changed with the different weight distribution for front to back. I remember having to back the front out a turn or so. Don't remember the rear though.
