Need more ground clearance for motors on drop through trucks?

Hi,

I need to gain more ground clearance to avoid motors hitting ground or board when turning.

My board is a Loaded Dervish and don’t want expense of buying bigger wheels.

Can risers somehow be fitted to drop through trucks deck to give more clearance ?

Any advice would be appreciated,

Martyn

You can top mount and use risers.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply,

I was concerned that if I just bolted the trucks underneath the deck the bolt holes through the deck being close to the hole in the board may cause the bamboo deck to split without any sort of plate on top to hold bolts all square , if that makes sense ?

Tons of people do it that way with no issues, but you can also use a support like x things:

s-l400

They make them like simple X designs, too:
