Unhappy Well, I really screwed up this time....

Hey guys....so we went riding yesterday, and I had my first bad wreck on the 350....and of course, it killed her. Rim is destroyed (easy enough to fix) A-arm is bent, also not the end of the world....but, and this is painful even to type, my chassis is badly tweaked and the frame is buckled....

I know she's beyond repair, but I'm still considering buying a new frame (...and A-arm and rim) and rebuilding her. Anyone know where to get a frame and the other stuff/have one for sale??

She's a 2007 Raptor 350.

thanks guys.

Yea man how are YOU!? Uhh rappy'97 still has his 350 in parts I believe... You might want to PM him and ask. If not like others said eBay is good.

I hope you didn't get hurt but get insurance. My friend crashed his 700 and as soon as the insurance heard he fliped it they just gave him the money for what the quad was worth stock and dollar for dollar what he spent in after market parts. You may get lucky and someone on here have a frame but like the other guys said ebay might be your best spot to try to find one.

Quads are cheap to fix. Damage to yourself is FAR from cheap. Glad your ok.

yeah guys I'm alright, just banged up.

We were racing through the trails and let her rip down the straight away. Unfortunately thanks to the rain lately there were quite a few potholes...the track was pretty torn up with soft and loose dirt/gravel/rocks and ruts too. Hit a bump going about 50mph caught some air, all was good until the landing. she got real squirrely, tried to correct it but tires snagged the grassy edge of the trail and the bike shot off to the left. I went down to the right and faceplanted...my friend said i skidded/rolled/bounced about 20feet. shattered my visor and cracked my helmet, broke my chest protector, took a chunk out of my nose and gave me a black eye. cut and lump on the head. pretty bruised all over with dandy road rash on my back and arm. had to stitch my finger up too haha.

we went out to dinner after (and because I'm a girl I had to have a little fun with this) people asked what happened I told them he beat me hahaha.

but thanks for your concern guys, that was sweet of you. So I'm ok, nothing serious. my poor quad
