True, there are plenty of other offensive things out there but we do appreciate the help in keeping at least this forum clean.I fixed a few words but other than that no changes.

Like the progress of this machine so far!

The bike looks like its coming along nicely. I see you are in the uk, those quadzillas look much different than the ones I鈥檝e seen here in the US. The ones here are butt ugly!

Not any good quad bike forums in the UK and I鈥檓 after a raptor one day, did put a deposit down mid last year on a brand new black and blue 2019 700r with all the extras but pulled out as it was my first quad and didn鈥檛 know if I would ride it much so got the xlc 500 and love it and my mate got a Dinli 450 just after riding mine 馃槀

I鈥檝e got a Quadzilla xlc 500 and it鈥檚 great top speed is better then a raptor if your man enough to get there. Off road is great to mine is lowered so can bottom out but never had a issue when I go 馃憤馃徎
Well, I stand corrected, the 500s in UK look way better than the ones here in the US too! Have you ever seen the ones I鈥檓 talking about?
Didnt mean to bash your rides buddy 馃檭

They look kind of scary to me, idk. Like one of those plague doctor masks from medieval times.

Got the nerf bars off today going to try and get them sanded down and some point over the next few days. Try and get all the painting done in one go. Should hopefully get the new starter motor in the next few days plus looking at changing the exhaust

So I鈥檝e been watching some vids of these, and wondering... this isn鈥檛 a Suzuki is it? This is a literal brand named Quadzilla, which has nothing to with the 鈥80s behemoth by Suzuki dubbed the quadzilla?

Quadzilla is a brand the engine in the xlc 500 is made by subaru but as far as Suzuki goes I don鈥檛 think it has anything to do with them
