New here, Glad to meet everyone and couple pics

Whats going on everyone,

Been riding 3 and 4 wheelers for about 25 years now for the most part have had mostly 2 strokes, my last bike was a 91 Suzuki 250 quad race that was punched out to 330 with all kinds of mods done to it. I got a couple friends into quading and they bought new Raptors when they first came out and I was
so impressed with it sold my suzuki and bought one. So heres my bike, bought it new in the end of 2001 and had very little problems with it, yeah the starter clutch went out and I smoked the clutch due to being mainly a 2 stroke rider kept trying to ride this one like that one anyway started collecting parts for it shortly after buying it and end of last year decided to strip it and make it my own little beasty. It had a couple little things done to it prior but nothing major.

So I stripped it down to the bare frame and had it powder coated black. Put +2 lonestar a-arms and a +2 custom chrome swing arm on by T-Dub racing on with + 2 lonestar axle. Ohlin shocks are up front rear is stock but planning on revalving it. Trail tec HID lights on the handle bars and a LED light kit for the back. PWR radiator and oversixed oil tank. Replaced all the plastic with factory yammy black and a carbon fiber nose cover and stainless radiator guard. Pulled the stock motor out and purchased a complete 02 bottom end to update the transmission,put a 4 mm stroker crank and a 686 10.5 to 1 piston for a 719 kit. It's got a full hinson clutch kit and GYTR clutch, LA design starter bearing. Top end is a full race ported head with +2 stainless valves and a race series web cam. Put a oversized Keihin carb on it to supply the fuel. and last was a dyno tech CID.
Yoshamura carbon fiber silencer and titanium headpipe.

The only orginals parts are the frame sterring stem and wiring harness. So heres some pics. Old photo first.
