just got mine about a month ago. luv it.



luv this board too, just got some 450 shocks from raptorgirl. I can't wait to put those on.
the k&n, jet kit and gyt-r slip on really woke the motor up, and I thought it was good before I put the mods on it.







I took off some of the stickers. I want to find some black plastic next I think. I put the gyt-r skid plates on and a PRM grab bar.







ordered a cover for the airbox, new grips, and a oil filter cover. A new front grab bar is next.. that should do it for awhile. :rock:




off to the dunes in coos bay, or (KOA) over thanksgiving weekend, first time. I can't wait, there are 8 of us going with 8 quads.. :hey:

yeah, its more tipsy than my unckles 450 for sure..
I was thinking about the wheel spacers. cheap, but wonder how they last. I dont do huge air, plus I could take them off for woods riding.. not sure on that one yet.

Nice :tup:

Since you have white plastic, use Westley's Bleche White because it will take out some stains and make then look nice. When I had white rears, thats what I used and it worked like a charm.

Yeah that stuff works well on my white rears but it don't take boot scuff marks off. Other than that it makes them real white!

is the rear shock supposed to move or twist left to right? its like the upper bushing is shot. it was squeaking bad so I tried to oil it and noticed it would twist pretty far back and forth.

They usually have about 45 degrees worth of play in them. As far as a squeak, try regreasing the linkage, 90% of the time that is what is actually making the noise. :tup:
