Actually, I thought my crank bearings were going out cuz i had shavings in my filter, but I hadnt changed my filter in a while evn after a cam install and nothing looked wrong after I tore it down so Im waiting for gaskets to get it back together. And the rears are Pro Wedge II's, but I just got some 4snows on rims for free last night so Imma try those out.

What did you do with your tank?

If you look closely, it's more like "What did you do with your tank, head, and cylinder?"

They usually remove the front brakes, make the thing as light as possible. I've seen drag quads that aren't much more than frame, handle bars, motor, and tires.

So far ive added, as you can see, blaster shocks which are slightly lighter and lower the quad significantly. Removed front brakes, parking brake and all cables/levers attached to it, front light, front fenders, a few tabs here and there, nerf bars, heel gaurds, Have some lightweight drag bars on the way. Soon to come is a +6 swingarm (cant keep front down as it is without hardly any engine work!), ported head, bored carb, bored cylinder, possibly higher compression but still pump gas, and in the far future drag arms, axle, stem, lightened frame, spindle mounts etc. All in all for everything i want..is around 4000$..Which would be all out for my bike, which is alot cheaper than mx.

He never said it was 4000 less than a MX. He said it would cost him about 4000. That is less than a MX. But that's not true. All you really need to make an MX quad is some longer arms. That's 900 or so for top of the line. Shocks are about a 1000 and a rear axle is a few hundred bucks.

...adn thats if you want a top of the line MX quad...I raced mine w/stock shocks and a-arms...I didn't do too bad, now that I have the shocks done I can tell I could have been a lot faster going out of the jumps and cornering....but a lowering link in the back of mine helped tremendously and that I got off ebay for like 30 bucks or so....a whole lot cheaper than the a-arms...

but, anywho, I've never seen a drag quad either Savannah...so don't feel bad, they look pretty bad @$$ :) :)

I'd like to check out one of those races someday...so Bot, they do drags only in Sand?? do they do them on pavement also??

They race everything on pavement. They run sleds on the 1/4 mile strip. The snow mobiles can hit nearly 200 mph on pavement. If you go to the big sand dune spots, that's where you see the people with money. They have these kind of toys.

What i meant by 4k and less than a mx quad is going all out. With 4000$ my bike will be pretty much as drag of a bike as you can possibly make it with as many parts as you can get. The only thing that wont be high dollar is the engine, becuz of course you can get more than 5k just in an engine. But comparing to amx, thats 4k and ive got a top of the line drag bike, to get a top of the line mx bike your going to spend ALOT more than 4k. But to each their own.

If you look at the four stroke war videos on youtube, the majority of the bikes you see with no plastics what so ever are TRXs, and thats what im going for. Pretty much a frame, tires, engine, handlebars. And they fly

      Hi, Guys. 
      Sorry for my English, I live in Ukrane, Kharkiv. 
      I have Can Am Renegede 800, 2007, g1, mileage is 430 hours. Happened issue with chain in first cylinder. Mechanic opened engine and found problems with piston, rings, cylinder, etc. So engine need full rebuild. 
      I found rebuild kit on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/06-10-Can-Am-Outlander-800-800R-Stock-Cylinder-Crank-Complete-Engine-Rebuild-Kit/253868930525?fits=Make%3ACan-Am&hash=item3b1bc475dd:g:NdMAAOSwew5a-bY9
      Price is really good. For example original crankshaft costs $929.99. Here full kit costs $999. This kit made by BP Racing ATV Company. Here is their website https://bpracingatv.com/
      But I can’t find reviews to their products. My mechanics didn’t used parts from BP Racing ATV before. And their parts not very popular in Ukraine. I’m afraid that I will spent money for this kit + delivery + pay to mechanic for a work and will need new engine rebuild after 100 hours.
      What is the quality of parts from BP Racing ATV?
      Is it have sence to buy this kit, or pay more and buy original parts?
      Maybe someone used this kits for rebuild engine. And have expirence of using this parts. What will your mind about quality of parts from BP Racing?  
      Thanks for your answers.

      Bought an '11 Vic with the 4.6L back in June and a few months back I tried to change out the plugs. All came out ok except for cyl 4 which only cranked out 1/4 turn. Had a shop take it out and they said they had to redo the threads. I've seen videos where you can remove a stuck plug by drilling into it somehow, but because this was in the 4 position and hard to get to I'm guessing they just power cranked it out. Not sure but I'm guessing those threads are compromised now.


      Well, this past weekend that same plug blew out of cyl 4. Inspection reveals a coil and boot jammed up underneath the fuel rail and a plug that I fished out without any turning. When I go to install a new plug it just sits on top of the threads and turns without going in. So I guess what's happened is that the plug rotated most of the way out but when it got to the last couple threads the compression blew it out the rest of the way, and that it's just the top few threads in the hole that are damaged. Inspection of the plug reveals that most of the threads are intact except for the 2-3 that are closest to the element.


      So my question is...should I try to fix this myself or just take it to a shop? Some kind of tap tool would probably fix it, but since it's the beginning threads that are boogered it'd probably have to start from the inside of the cylinder. I really don't have a clue as to how to approach this.

      '11 Grizz 700 here.  Since I've got some warm weather these next couple days I've decided to start the bike after about a year of just sitting.  Took out the plug and sprayed a good amount of fogging oil on top of the piston to help lubricate things.  After about a minute of letting it soak I stuck my air line tubing in to suck out the excess, but it seems like I didn't get nearly as much in return.  Repositioned the tube enough so that everything that was gonna come out pretty much did.  I'll probably shoot some compressed air down the plug hole before doing the start just to make sure it's all out, as well as cranking it for a second before putting the plug back in.   How long would it take for a bit of standing fogging oil to seep past the piston rings, and where would it go?  I guess into the engine oil?  The oil was fairly new the last time it was started but I'm sure it could stand to be changed after sitting for so long.  If much of this fogging oil got into the engine oil should I do the change before the startup?

      While riding my Quadzilla XLC 500 I was cruising along about 60 mph then opened it up, but once I hit 70-75 mph it died on me so I rolled to a stop and it wouldn't start for about 20-30 seconds. I then noticed the Temp light occasionally flashes on but its so quick you wouldn't notice in the day so not sure how long its been happening. The engine has started pinging when I accelerate which can be caused by many things so I drained the fuel and replaced with hi octane, fitted a new spark plug, adjusted the little washer on the high jet in the carb twice to make it run more lean which made no difference.  I tested the thermostat which opens at the correct temperature, I removed the radiator cap and started the engine and no bubbles were showing and the oil is on maximum and very clean as I have not long serviced it.
      The last time I took it out I went 14 miles and the coolant in the bottle has dropped about 1/2".
      I am now leaning towards a head gasket and have purchased a full gasket kit but was wondering if there's anything else it could be before taking the engine apart.

      So i recently bought a Honda TRX 450r 05 kick start model i am the 3rd owner. this bike ripped when it was running but i ceased it.I freed up the piston but there is little compression now. i think i ran it out of oil but it was like 20hrs or so since the last oil change. My real question is that i heard you have to rebuild the top end every 15 hours is this true? Now i have bought a new big bore kit to replace the cylinder and the piston but i dont really want to have to rebuild it every 15hrs.
