Well I broke my durablue Eliminator this friday (what a piece of $hit by the way, it fractured then twisted right off where the hub meets the splines)
So I ordered a GForce extended axle..(the last one RMATV had in stock thank you very much)

Heres the deal, after I paid for it I noticed it doesnt state anywhere in the description it has a lifetime warranty, eventhough it is listed as a lifetime warranty for other models its not for the honda. The salesperson said it is but you know what thats worth.

Has anyone had any warranty repair done on thier Gforce axle? Do they give you a new one or do they straighten it like LSR does? Is this really an upgrade from the durajunk I just broke or is it a lateral move...

I guess I should of asked this stuff BEFORE I bought it but I need a new +4 axle NOW DAMN IT.

RMATV has excellent customer service from what I've seen in the past. I know several people with G-forces including myself. We haven't bent one yet. I've heard of other people bending in the first 5 minutes of riding but who knows. I've also heard that RMATV will replace your axle no questions asked though. They are very good to work with. I've personally had good luck with my axles though and haven't had to send any g-forces back.

Well that makes me feel alittle better about it. So you are saying they replace the axle with a NEW one and not bend it back into shape or give you a remanufactured axle correct?

Several of my friends have the Gforce axel and we jump and dune the crap out of them and have yet to have a problem with them. So far they have been great, and they have a great price as well.

my understanding was that if you bend the g-force you just send it in and then they send you a new one. but i haven't bent mine so i dont know for sure.

Except you can almost get 2 G-force axles for the price of one RPM, and if a G-force works fine, whats the problem?

if the axle bends or breaks they dont fix it, they replace it.

i forgot to add, no , i dont think they are better than durablue, just cheaper and good... i think there are plenty of situations that will equally destroy any axle, not dissing you, but its unfair to call them durabend, but funny...my durablue swaybar is awesome and well made..

i've had mine for over a year and ride almost 100% mx and haven't had a problem. but my brother has broke 2 and they sent him a new one no questions asked both times so no complaints here.
