Tires, and Rims: out with the old, in with the new

Recommended Posts

So I wanted to start a thread about modifications on ATVs OR SXSs that makem look sick or run better.  It can be any modification from new handlebar grips to a winch to an added lightbar, but I was focusing on tries and rims.  Here are some of my simple additions to my Bayou 300:  I put looker front shocks on it, added a 2500 winch, replaced the headlight with a blinding 6in light bar, and added new and bigger rims and tires:

and just for clarification, all the pics are of it with the lightbar on it, the last one is of the stock headlight.

Nice upgrades, that’s a great bike. I have the 400 and it runs a great. A few upgrades but nothing major other then appearacne wise. Paint, seacover and some led headlights. 

My last Polaris 200 i picked up for my son had a busted headlight, the replacement was almost $325 bucks so I plated over it and put a custom led light  worked out better and looked great. The bike needed a lot of work anyway so I figured why not make my own light set up.  That’s the best thing about some of the older bikes. Yiu have no regrets trying things!

haha!  yea I bought my 6in light from my friend for $14 the day I got the bike.  The same friend found me a 04 sportsman 500 not running for $1200 (needs a stater and a battery) so I cant wait to get it fixed up with a lift kit, led headlights, and bigger tires....might even put a snorkel on it if I like it enough....will put pics on here as I'm doin stuff!  I'm going to pick it up this thursday (he lives in AL and I live in VA).  heres a pic he sent me:

If you can find one of my old posts. I picked up a 400 bayou in PA. Had a knock on the head. The owner turned it off put it away in a shed and never touched it again. The shop told him the cam was blown. Turned out it was where the cam sits in the head. So the cam wobbled and made a knock.  I picked up a very good used head/cam for a few bucks and really went to town on the bike. New valve seals etc. I painted it and did the seat cover and a few goodies. The bike is a beast! 4x4 it’s a good looking bike.   Runs like new. My oldest rides it.

Man i love that paint job, what did you use for a pattern ? or did you do it all free hand? Also like the hell out of that light idea!

That was actually my second atv paint project.  All I did was sand and prep the plastics. Put a good paint adhesive primer spray on and added my base coat.  The second color was my camo coat, I actually put on latex gloves and had real leafs from the tree outside my house.  Laid them right on the plastics and sprayed over them. The pattern was there. Just kept moving it along as I went.  The light housing that was there I removed it and added a piece of plastic from an old rubber maid I had laying around.  I miss that bike. It was fun.

      Truck, Trailer, TWO 2008 YFZ450 ATVs, and 1000s in tools and equipment took off from the Valets parking garage for the hotel.
      The truck and trailer were left abandoned 3.5 miles away in an alley empty of everything on Caldwell Street near Owenwood.

      Hey everyone, hoping to get some help here... my kids 03 KTF 50 Quad has always ran great... they were riding it a couple of hours a few days ago and it died a couple of times (not normal) but started right back up. A few days later my 5 year old wanted to take it for a spin so I started it (2 pulls) and he took off.. he made it a couple hundred yards and it died and we havnt been able to start it since. I have new gas, good spark and 120 psi compression.. it will not start with starter fluid in the intake or even in the cylinder.. the fuel bowl has fuel at the carb... what am I missing? It’s driving me crazy!!

      So I got this '96 Jeep Cherokee XJ that cranks but doesn't start.  It's got around 180k on her but I keep everything in good shape.  Batt seemed strong.

      I used to drive it everyday but this past year I've driven it only about twice a week.  It's been just slightly slower to start in the last couple of months, but just barely slower.  Was guessing it had something to do with aging plugs or something.

      Drove it yesterday and everything was normal like always, sat overnight and today it cranked but didn't catch.

      Any ideas on where to start?
