well im gona be without my quad for a while..i was in dumont and hit a bathtub(and no its not an actual bathtub its a ditch in the sand shaped like one) my front left of the quad hit the sand hard and i flipped over and so did the quad. the quad somehow flipped an and hit my right elbow. You can see the exhaust mark on my arm..There were skin pieces still on the tail pipe..kinda gross. Anyhow, no broken bones but bruised up elbow and cut up really good and bruised up chest and shoulder and a bad whiplash. Now for the quad...everything seems fine except for the left front side. both upper and lower a-arms bent, steering link bent, rim bent, and few other things..here are the pics.

At least you didn’t get hurt too bad.

But the front of your atv wasn’t so lucky. :eek:

how is the frame? did the front end of the frame getting any damage? if only the bolt on stuff is wrecked, it can be rebuilt fairly easily. I would check the whole steering mech, bars, steering bar etc.

nothing worse then wrecking your toys!

If its paid for you could have insurance cut you the check and a little shopping on ebay and you could prolly get the things you want for it!!! sometimes you can even get them to cut you the check without the title being in your hands guess it just depends on the insurance company..

:eek: Ouch, thank God you didn't brake anything, I know the quad can get costly but is repairable.
I can speak from experience and the cost of repairing was far lesses than the pain I had from the fractured ancle and wrist...

Fell better and take care.
