Well the time has come to start assembly of my quad. I have bought alot of parts from guys around the forum, lots off ebay. Very little from the dealers. I'm going with a black frame, swinger, a-arms. Finishing it all off with blue plastics skin industries graphics. A few little suprises along the way I am sure but mostly have the lot of parts to get me rolling!! :thumbsup: What do you guys think?





Couldn't post pics!! said they were too big :'(

Looks like you got a couple goodies on there already. The black frame looks deadly. Those Razrs will look nice.

Looking good. You just might have it done in time for Little Sahara. :thumbsup:

On a side note, if you need a place to crash for a day or two on your trip, let me know. There's some pretty cool riding around here as well.

Hey!! Whats up? I have a couple questions for anyone looking here! I have my houser +2 steering stem installed I was wondering what you guys are running for handle bars with a +2 stem? I was thinking I am going to need a bike handle bar, low rise! Next question, I have my new plastice and I was wondering if there was a trick to straightening them out after shipping, I put them on and put the quad in the sun to warm it up nice but it didn't do alot. Will do it again tomorrow but just curious. I know there was more but I will remember as soon as I hit enter I'm sure!! Oh another thing!!! Stock plastice come with the warning plates but no emblem on the nose piece!! WTF

I got the stem in there!! Its a houser +1, they say it's a plus two but I think thats for the yfz's. Yeah I know the blue plastics are shit for the wear but thats alright, it's no show quad. It will be well used and thats cool.

Looks great. What bars did u end choosing? I added an inch to the my stock stem and use a Renthal Raptor bend bar. Had to do some rerouting as it was near the limits for cables.
