Are u keepin the plastics? When we painted the engine we used a glossy high temp paint and pretty much just painted the cases and the side. Came out good. While your tearin it down regrease everything. And if there are ne nuts and bolts that look questionable, do an OEM order for new ones or even just got to Lowes for some of them. And always do a clear coat on everything(except the engine) helps it keep up much longer. GOOD LUCK!! :yes:

I hear ya on being broke i think me and my BF spent another 1500 bucks on top of the 1300 bucks we bought the quad for. I kept the plastics that were on the quad (which are white and on the front has the black trim) just cleaned them with the mr. clean magic eraser...works GREAT on white plastics. I bought a new gastank cover and hood in black. I think the gas tank cover was around$65 and the hood was $40. I had a white gas tank cover didnt want to paint it because it gets alot of rubbin and such from riding so i wanted that to have the stock finish on it, thought it would hold up better.....and i had to buy a new hood cuz the one on it was cracked and broken. If you need OEM parts at ne point though check out Mrcycles.com. They have the cheapest OEM parts i have found. I think in the last few months i have given them more of my money than ne one else lol. They should dedicate a wing of there building in my name :laugh:

alba was cheaper:yes:by like 20 bucks

Just be carefull with after market plastics, sometimes they dont fit right or the same as oem...so ive heard. Never had them though. I do have an aftermarket full ac skid plate and that didnt even fit right , had to bend it up in the front because it wouldnt fit with the bumper. The front of the skid plate stuck out too far so we bent it behind the bumper. Looks good, but always be careful with non OEM after market stuff.

Thinking about it more, you should lose the chrome. Just my opinion, but all black frame motor and wheels would look sweet with all white plastics and tank or all white with black tank. I personally think the contrast of the white and black with no shiny parts would look ******* bad ***!!!!!
