No, it is not done by any means. I am still fabricating the frame, steering, exhaust, throttle, brakes, etc. When the chassis is done, l will then fabricate a fiberglass body for it. The 2 real pictures that l posted were of my first prototype chassis. I have made a few changes since then. As far as operating it, it will be driven more like a manual shifting car, than a quad. It steers by the front and rear wheels. The front, and rear turn in opposite directions.  When turning left, for example, the front wheels are turned left, and the rear are turned right. The center wheels are fixed, and don't turn left or right. I have added two updated chassis pictures.

      Hello everyone, did a search and not successful. Purchased new 2017 Sportsman 570 sp and my power steering is not working. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Works then it doesn't. Dealer says there's not a fix. Thought it was just me and it being a brand new machine with 4 hours on it. Dealership said it's this model only ? Not sure what a person in this spot is suppose to do and wondering are your thoughts mite be. Thanks

      Hello, great forum here!
       
      I bought a non running 1998 Big Boss 500 6x6. The previous owners had done quite a bit of work to it. It has a new carburator, fuel pump, starter, adjusted the valves, new mid sprockets and chain. But they said it wouldn't run.
       
      When I got it home I did get it to run, though not very well. It doesn't want to idle and there is a very loud knocking. I didn't run it very long. Hopefully it's just the clutch knocking. It has 4000 miles on the odometer. I popped off the valve cover and the cam looks ok, (it's not flat!) I haven't measured it yet. I still need to check compression.
       
      There's no oil in the gearbox, found a crack in the case behind the output shaft. Looks like a mounting point?
       
      I think I'll try and find a case half. I should probably tear apart the gear box first, it might be in bad shape inside. Who knows how long it was ran without oil. It does shift between all gears.
       

       

       
      The rest of it is in fair condition, normal wear and tear for 4000 miles.
       
      Sorry I don't have any pictures of it other than the cracks.
       
      I should probably make sure the motor is good before I put money into the gearbox.
       
      Any tips on things to look for would be appreciated!
       
      Thank you

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      Just bought this Honda quad and when I first drove it the steering seemed very hard.  Those that I talked to said that's normal as it's full time 4 wheel drive.  Well yesterday while looking from the front is looked like the front tires were pointing out quite abit.  I measured the toe and was toe-out by a little over an inch.  Yikes so this morning decided to try an adjustment and after an hour or so had the toe-out to 1/4".  Took for a test drive and the steering was alot easier, still not like driving a 2 wheel drive but made a huge difference.  There are differences as to what the toe should be set to but so far this seems to do the trick.
