Here is another stem I built this last week. It is a +1" 4130 1/8" wall chromoly tubing tig welded throughout. This one is for PSMsandrap.
They weigh about 2 lbs. more than a stock yamaha potmetal stem but guaran damn tee you won't bend this one haha! :D
I have some more material leftover if anybody else wants one. You would have to cut off the head and spline sections about 3" away from the welds and I will grind the sections out that I need. PM me if anybody's interested 8)

Yeah man I can do the 660 stems also but the only problem is the head unit on the 660 is cast and pressed on. So you would need to find a head unit off of a bent up 700 stem and then send it to me with the splines off your 660 stem.

The spline section has a hex head originally but I turn it down in my lathe then insert it into the new tubing. After welding it I drill a little hole about 1/4" up from the weld and add another weld bead there to act as a woodruff key of sorts. Then the top section is full pin welded on every connection point unlike the way yamaha does it. They only weld it in half as many places and the top plate is like 20 guage potmetal on the oem stem but I upgrade that to 3/16" plate. This stem is solid man you could rip it right out of the quad with your truck and not bend it LOL

Lol funny story I was just using as is and wrecked saturday and I think it saved my quad ALOT of hurting and it is still in good shape :). But gonna get it all fixed up next week. And as for the plastics I'm converting to the 08 SEII so if I can sell them outright I won't be so much in the hole while buying the black ones. So I'll keep in touch about a trade.

Oh yeah man I love those black plastics! I actually thought about just painting mine. I still may but I have a few deep scratches that will needto be sanded out first.
But yeah man keep it in mind for sure! ;)

Very nice Carp! First class job!:thumbsup:
Thanks woods! Yeah it really isn't all that difficult just somewhat time consuming because of the steps involved. Especially painting in this cold weather is abitch. I have already stripped and reshot this stem 3 times now. I finally talked the wife into letting me let it dry in the guest bathroom haha!
