Cabrinha recoil bar 2011

Postby jetboy » Wed Oct 20, 2010 7:11 am

The spring on the new cabrinha recoil bar doesn't suit my wave riding. I musn't be the only one as there is a video on the cabrinha site how to remove it. Does anyone know if there is sliding or fixed stopper that will fit once the spring is removed? Also does the 2010 pro kit fit the 2011 recoil bar as well? Thanks in advance :)

Looks from the vid that the same slider can be used without the recoil ...

Yes you can, but it just flaps in the breeze without the recoil; was looking to be able to have a stopper to clip slider into like previous switchies.

The 2010 Pro Kit will work with the 2011 kites...
Just make sure you retune your lines after installing. You'll find you'll need to move one of the center line attachment knots back towards the kites about 3-4"

Thanks Steve have fitted 2010 pro kit to 2011 recoil bar. All I used was one of the pigtails from above the swivel of the recoil to even centre line lengths. I'll give the recoil another go and test with pro kit and recoil on first, before I decide to remove spring. :)
n.b. The pro kit is NOT for everyone..... just suits how I like to ride.
