Swap’s Stocking Stuffers | Works Connection Elite Axle Blocks
Price: $59.95 pair
Don’t jump to conclusions that these are just cool-looking anodized chi chis that don’t offer any performance gains like those made by other aluminum part companies; the Works Connection Elite Axle Blocks are designed hand-in-hand with factory technicians and offer real advantages to the end user. Machined from 6061 T-6 billet aluminum, the Elite Axle Blocks are machined to much tighter tolerances than the cobby OEM parts. And did you know that the adjustment markers on stock axle blocks aren’t always correct? Matching up the third line on the left block to the right block doesn’t always yield a perfectly straight rear wheel, and this can lead to poor handling, premature chain and sprocket wear, and worst of all; the danger of throwing a chain. Factory mechanics never rely solely on the adjustment marks on their axle blocks…they measure the space on each side of the swingarm using calipers to ensure perfect wheel, chain and sprocket alignment. The Works Connection Elite Axle Blocks have an integrated caliper receiver post to ensure true chain alignment. Available in anodized blue, red, black, green or raw silver finishes, these $60 parts can eliminate a variety of headaches for the rider on your gift-giving list.
