Well, let me see if Motosport cancels my order or not first, because I paid for a new one already.
But, if they do, how much do you want for it, shipped to 24517 Va?
Thanks

New switch bracket
full custom, lol.
A standard aftermarket half-switch handlebar bracket is offset, I have a few, but they don't line up with the full switch housing bolt holes.
I had an old stamped wrench that probably came with furniture over the years.
It needed a little modification, but works great. I also needed 2 shorter machine screws for the stock switch.
I could have shortened the stock ones, but had a couple ss allen button heads.

New switch layout
Lights function same as stock.
Starter is to the right of the clutch perch.
Kill switch is left of the thumb throttle.
I cut it's mounting bracket and tucked it up against the lower mc bracket bolt.
The lightbar switch will probably go between the left grip and the headlight switch, on the bare spot on the bar, which is there because that's where I like the clutch lever positioned.
The lower stock switch housing was removed to give clearance for the hot-start lever to swing left, which now engages reverse, by using a Dr.D extended reverse cable.
Making reverse engage this way works great, and is exactly what I wanted.
It is the reason for the switch changes.

More high tech mods, lol
I used the stock clutch perch cover to cover the 4 white plugs from the Vapor dash.
They were Very visible with the fenders on, and this will keep rain and mud off of them too, so this was another free fix.

Factory Service Manual.
Yes, the pdf version is convinient, but I like having a paper manual on hand.
Technically this IS a mod, especially to the younger generation who think books are antiques, lol. View attachment 139502
Can you share where you found this? I found it at $79 at a site called repairmanuals.com o_O
NOT ready to pay for that. Hopefully you got it for less elsewhere

I got mine direct from Yamaha...and it was $99+ tax and shipping.
I definately didn't want to pay that, but I wanted a factory paper manual.
There is one oem manual like mine on ebay now, but it is $79.99 with free shipping.
That's about as cheap as they get for current generation machines.

Does the manual fit under the seat by any chance? Looking at the Ebay post right now. Thanks!

Yes sir, I have been going over it with a torque wrench, but didn't think about the head...will do!
Thanks!
Since I first got my 2020 shipped to the dealer and put together at the room floor their was a shrieking everytime I would push the quad with the wheels turned all the way left or right. I’m thinking it was the rear brakes or something. Take it to its first service at 16 hours. They said it was normal lol. I kept buying into them being the professionals and being thorough. So after putting 40 hours on it and multiple oil changes, installation of big three all myself, handle bars, factory 43 nerf bars and at least 25 hours of hard riding in really rocky terrain. I decided to check the problem out myself because everytime I would put it away it would annoy the shit out of me. It was the a loose wheel bearing THE WHOLE TIME. And leave up to the professionals, your bike will be falling apart. So checking all that he suggested I think is a great idea. Sorry just wanted to share my experience with that.

Sadly, most dealership's "professional" mechanics are a bunch of hacks.
There are a few good ones, but unfortunately not many.
My 700 will only ever be worked on by me for as long as I own it.
