Well being that i am selling my white z i took the tires and rims off it and put it on my z. I went riding today and looked and at my rims to find that on the inside by the bead there is a dent in each one. Anyone else have this trouble with dougles rims? I am goign to pund them back out. Then get some tires for my beadlocks because there relly thick and i don't think they are going to bend to easy. Well heres the pics i think it looks better!

what do you mean for a suzuki? suzuki makes some of the best looking quads out on the market, accually i think they are the only ones with some style sense, i mean honda look like giant bugs (the 450r and new 400ex) and the 300s look like they have down syndrome, with that big handlebar plastic, and yamahas are pure ugly, except for the rappy (and maybe the yfz, but not really)

wow, i am rambling on sooo much, im just gonna shut up for the night

Ahh na the grizzly's look good to. Thats one of the reason's i picked mine because it looks mean! Thanks glad you like my z some people think it's ugly. I am going to take the stock rims and fast trekkers and put back on it because i don't relly like the dougles rims but they do look great! Also i think i might add the +4 axle from my white z to this one!

dont be hating on the banshee's, some are fugly i must say, but the good looking ones are just friggin awesome. the look of a raptor amazed me at first, then it got old. the look of a banshee will always be a timeless. "pretty nice for a suzuki" they are a whole lot better looking than 300's, i mean why couldnt they give the front a little shape, and the handlebar mounted lights and plastics make it look ridiculously. but then again, why would they make a begginer quad look nice. that is a really nice Z ya got there!

I like the looks of the Z, but I don't really like the lights, how they are above eachother. Just looks too...different to me. But that is a pretty nice Z :tup: :tup:

:bs: haha buddy you didnt have .190's, theres no possible way that just by riding around your yard they could leak air unless they were defective to begin with. i have douglas .190's front and back and i ride hardcore xc and have only seriously dented the rim to the point of leakin once

Stock rims are much stronger than .190s because of the rolled edge. I wouldnt get douglas or itp rims unless they were reinforced or beadlocks or I rode the dunes.

Nice bluegrizz :tup: ,Z looks really good. Only thing that I don't really care for though is the Alba Graphics. I dunno, I think its the combination of me not liking flames on ATV's, or the huge ALBA part on the tank. Other than that though, that is really nice set up.

I used to have .190's on my Raptor and the rear wheels did get some flat spots from landing jumps(15 foot table tops). In my opion there only good for groomed trails, sand, or for what Im using them for now, snow.

P.S. 2MuchRoOst, that is one kick ass Z 400. I think I saw that before over at z400central.com.
