Has anyone use the Super ATV 3 inch lift kit? There are not many reviews out there and i would like to know someone elses opinion before i commit to the $250 purchase.

My first question is, why? If you need more ground clearance, why not go bigger on tires?
i only have 100 miles on it. may be a while before i need tires and i was thinking this may allow me to go bigger on the tires when that time comes. I guess i was asking more about how bad will they effect the ride. We mainly trail ride and cross creek/mudholes and i am just trying to keep my ass dry.

I hear ya. I’m personally not a fan of those type of lifts (not saying they don’t work) as they change the geometry of the machine. Personally, and this is just me, I’d put that $250 bucks towards new tires (that’s pretty much the cost of one of the new tires) which you will need sooner then later. Have a look around the site, you’ll see most of the peeps have changed out the OEM tires due to them being pretty bad in the quality department.

It works! It shouldn't really effect the ride on the KRX. Other machines with pretty crappy stock shocks may have a little stiffer ride.
Some machines may get a little stiff, but the KRX springs start to sag pretty quick, so this could stiffen you back up and give you a little ground clearance.
The best thing to do in the long run for more ground clearance and bigger tires would be forward offset A-arms. But this is a quick and affordable way to get you 3" more ground clearance.

I also agree 100% with @BigParm. I’m at 500 miles with mine and you can see the wear on the tires. Carnivores might be good for 1000 miles if you’re lucky. Take em off throw some bigger tires on and sell the carnivores.

Never been a fan of lift kits either. On my trucks nor my machines. They just make vehicles ride super harsh.

Bigger tires is always the best way to go for ground clearance. The lift is a great quick fix for a lot more ground clearance, but bigger tires and high clearance arms is the best long term solution like the other guys said.

What windshield is that? Does it provide enough airflow?
That is a Dirt Warriors windshield. I got mine through Deranged Off-Road. It provides a tremendous amount of air flow, enough to break the dust vacuum and you can feel the wind on your face. It also provides you with good vision out front. You can look right through and see the front of your machine and the trail when it is fully open. Basically no blind spot. It's also a two piece vent, so the passenger can control their own air flow through it.
The wiper is manually operated.

IDK'... one would think that if you have a set of sagged out springs these collars may raise you back up exasperate a spring lock and loose shock travel.. a better choice is the brackets that mount on the A arm and raise the shock mount or re spring.
