...So, here we are again. A "new" quad for me, and another thread about making it better.
So to start, you may already know, but i traded the "Monster" Trailblazer for a 2002 400ex. the 400 needs a little work and doesn't look the best cosmetically but i know from one blast down the street that it is FAST.
To my knowledge, it has a couple mods. from what you can see, it has an FMF Megamax Muffler, K&N filter, no lid, i have to check if it has stage one hotcams, it has razrs all around, i believe it has douglas aluminum wheels, renthal bars, maier racecut plastics, and shockwares.
that is all for the mods, that i know of, SO!
Lets begin with my plans. this thread will be VERY long and get VERY old. i will go through stages. beginning with stage one, cosmetic work. i am staying with the silver and a little red color scheme, since the hubs are already red. stage two, mild performance and lastly [if i want to] stage three, more major mods.
so lets start with listing stage one, my plans
Tusk Competition Nerf Bars, Red w/ Black Nets
Red MSR Clutch & Brake Levers
Handlebar Mounted Lighting
Billit Red Gas Cap
Red & Black Seat Cover
I think that is good for the red, the rest is already silver and black, just going to get some black engine paint and paint some engine parts also. this project, like my last one will probabally involve some custom painting. i think i will take the slipon off and paint it black and replace the logo. i want to clean up the header really good too, i might buy a newer one later on but i cant afford it now, will high temp paint work on the header? maybe the a-arms.
that is all for stage one, stay tuned as i will update with progress as we go on, to your surprise, i have already ordered some of the things in stage one, i have the grips and nerfs on the way. i have also bought a new battery. and plan on replacing the plug soon.
STAY TUNED FOLKS! IM ALSO OPEN TO OPINIONS AND SUGGESTIONS!
i hope this one will be as fun as the last one.
..i think this is my longest post ever.
