Next three Qs: Color, hitches, and winches

Recommended Posts

Welp here's my next three questions to help get me into my first machine (looking to buy used btw)...

1) I'm hooked on the camo color scheme but don't want to let that stop me from getting into a good bike. Say you had something like a red or green 2010 Grizz 550 and wanted to turn it camo. How would you go about that? Buy all the plastic off ebay and sell what comes off yours to recoup some of the cost? Or is there some kind of plastic or material cover you could get? Also, about how much would each route end up costing?

2) I've seen the back end of some machines that look like they're just not set up to handle a hitch ball. Are there some machines that you can't put a ball on at all, or are there aftermarket conversion kits made for every machine out there?

3) Same question for winches. I've seen some Grizz front ends that, either because of the molding or frame, just don't look like they'd take a winch. Am I right, or will all bikes (or at lease all Grizzlys) be able to accept an aftermarket winch kit?

Thanks

hydro dip would be best way to go for camo ... hitches are good to go with most any machine, the grizz might look like it wont accept one, but it will ... warn is best there is IMHO ...

    • Bike/brand of choice?

      So one thing I enjoy about Quadcrazy is the amount of diversity when it comes to the bike/brand of choice.   We all hear about so many different brands/types that we need help or helping out with!  Myself ive had just about every brand bike except for a Suzuki which I’m currently seeking as my next project😜. I currently have 5 quads and they are all different in brand except for two Honda’s one of which is a newer bike fuel injected. I have to say so far through all the bikes I’ve worked on my brand of choice would be Honda! I think they make a great product!  I love the older carburetor bikes!  Now I’m sure some of the other members feel differently and I would like to hear your bike of choice and why?  Wether it be the repairs, handling, look, safety, simplicity, electronics etc!!!!!!! One of the reasons I bring this up is I have friend that recently purchased a can am new!  I asked him why a can am after all the years of Polaris?  He said it’s a nice looking bike and wanted to try something new. He has rode the bike three or four times and hated it!  So a trip back to the dealer he traded it in for a Polaris and he’s very happy now.  A costly mistake since he lost money on the can am but back to his Polaris that he said he will never stray again.  Let’s hear it !

    • What do you have on your bike or with you before you hit the trails?

      Hello everyone, back from a crazy few months of riding, hunting and fishing! So I’ve added a storage bag to one of my bikes and loaded it up pretty good before we went out into the woods/trails etc.  My son questioned me and said what do we need all that junk for?  I told him you never know  maybe a flat tire water etc. Needless to say that junk came in handy.   So my question to everyone that hits the trails is what do you have or recommend to maybe take with you before you go? And what would be the one most important thing that’s a must have?  And also any recommendations on a  storage bag that’s not so costly and performs the best? I like my bag but not very good .

ATV Winch: [email protected]@[email protected]@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41LNIDoZ%[email protected]@[email protected]@41LNIDoZ%2B5L[/ame] This is the link for grip winch on Amazon . 2500 lbs winch for $128. Bought mine for $69.99 on sale at Rural King.

      Have not got to trail test it yet. My back yard has a 32 degree sloop and the 2500lbs winch pulled it up that with hardly any effort.

      Anybody have any input on the Blue Steel Rope Gorilla puts on some of their winches?
      I like the fact that it won't recoil if broken.
      Has anybody used it with good/bad results?
