The road to my quad makeover.....

21 posts in this topic

Well here are some more pictures of the quad before we tore it down, and part of the transformation. As you can see the quad is beat up and quite rusty. Right now we have everything off the frame and the frame partly sanded down. A few more days we will be ready to paint the frame. We did finally get the swingarm off. We had to cut it. This is gonna look great when done.

STAY TUNED I will have more pictures soon. :wink::yes:

I can't wait to see what you do with it. I wish I had the time and wanted to put in the effort to tear mine completely down. I hope to have mine back together this week. My exhaust should be on the way.

yupper it is indeed bent, also what we found is we needed a whole bunch of new nuts and bolts, i needed new heel guards and they come with new foot pegs. Need back brake pads. Need a new left front caliper because a pin was stuck in the old one and my man tried so hard but it wasnt budging. Needed a new swing arm and all the bolts, needs new bearings everywhere, a few plastics were bad, the headlight mount was broken off the frame so that needs welding. New clutch lines.

Some extras im puttin on.....some black plastic on the gas tank cover and the hood, nerfs, a bumper, new paint of course, handgaurds, new clutch lever, some yamaha graphics, and i think thats it haha, it is takin a while but it will be worth it. :)

My honey and I worked on it together, it was my first project. Really had no clue what I was doing.........it took an entire weekend and then some of the next week.....I know what you mean about being frustrated...I'm sure it made me cry more than once cause I was so frustrated at times...but, when it's done, and you see how pretty it is afterwards, you're like.......well that was worth it all...and it's all mine.

Promise.:wink::cute:

But it will be done and i will be soo happy, and yes yes i have shed a few tears myself lol.:yes:

I kinda went through that too...and when it was done I decided that I liked doing projects like that afterall............when you see the finished product you're like, woah, I did that!!! And then you begin to figure out what else you can tear apart and "fix" lol......

drtygrl: diggg the yellow :) just a question...why'd you change the color? To be different?? I changed my stuff because nearly every honda has got red on it and I, in all honesty, thought the quad was fugggggglyyy hahhaah:laugh::laugh::laugh:

Try having to tear into a fairly new one.....04 YFZ450's had all kinds of problems with the first batches......waterpump problems, charging problems, cranks siezing up.....been through all of it but it was all worth it because now I know it inside and out :wink:

Sorry, I'm not DrtyGrl but I have an answer for you!

We changed colors for a couple of reasons. Just about every Rhino around here looks the same. The full Bore body kit has a way more aggressive look to it. She wanted pink!(thank god they don't make pink plastics) She also has a 4 point harness that I mounted for her. We're are slowly turning it into a race machine.:yes:

The next thing we will do is probably a K & N filter. After that will be the super chip. Once we get our toy hauler we will consider the long travel A arms. It won't fit in our current trailer if I make it any wider.

This is some C.O.R.R. SxS racing practice.

      The Hop-Up: You may be saying to yourself, “that’s a chick bike,” and you’re right. But honestly, it’s so much more than that. It’s one badass bike. http://www.quadmagazine.com/quad/features/article/0,24942,1587044,00.html

      Feul pump went out. Replaced. At times quad cuts out like its not getting gas. Saw article on new pump needs to be calibrated. Told how to go into a service mode. Does not tell how to calibrate after going into mode. Can anyone shed light on this procedure.

      Can you put tracks on manual atvs? would it be effective? is 280cc enough to even move them? thoughts/suggestions?

      I recently picked up a king quad 700 that doesn't run in the hopes of getting it running by spring. It had been previously taken apart some and a few pieces are missing in the engine, but the frame is complete and in good condition. The motor will need a piston, rings, cylinder, cams, and a few misc parts that are missing. Also the cases will need to be split to remove the pieces of piston that are in the crankcase. The piston blew up at high rpm and did a number on the cylinder so I'm trying to find out if it would be worth rebuilding this motor it buying another engine to swap in. There may be more damage to this engine that I can see so I was wondering how bad the insides of it could be considering it destroyed the piston. I have found a motor for 1200 plus 200 shipping, the only problem is I don't have that much now and I would have to save up a while before being able to afford it. Any suggestions appreciated.
