depower lenght on Waroo '07

Postby Frankieboy » Mon Aug 20, 2007 2:47 pm

I just wonder how long is the depower on the '07 Waroo bar (between chicken loop and depower strap).

Anybody an idea?

Thanks

Frank

I believe the bar has 23" of throw. I shortened mine to about 19"

thanks mates.

Can you still reach the depower strap? How tall are U?

I am considering implementing this kind of setup but wonder if I will go for depower straps or clamcleat on the chicken loop.

I'm 5'8". No problems reaching the trim. I use a clamcleat above the bar and leave a 10" tail on the line to grab.

My depower line is starting to show signs of wear at the steel buckle of the depower strap, has anybody retrofitted a pulley to avoyd that wear and to make the line travel easier when using a suicide leash?
Which pulley is the right one?, Where can it be purchased?, Pictures?

When I pull the black strap, it just slips back to it's original position! Red depower works fine. So I can't power up. What is wrong?
