ok guys, just started tearing down the bike on tuesday after work and i was quit surprized at how much i got done in a 2 hrs. got all the plastics off and removed the motor. And also got some air craft cleaner and started to spray down the frame so i can repaint it. I was shocked to see how many different colors wer beneith the top layer of paint. Ther was a range from black, blue, yellow, and purple for the frame; and the shocks had about three different colors painted over them to. After spraying it down i noticed the front wheels changed colors to. I was excited on this one cause i found out the guy before sprayed the wheels silver and i have the old school gold wheels and hubs.

i'm tryin to upload the pics right now but photobucket is being a d#*sh. But as soon as i upload them i'll post up the progress so far

Looks like a good project... Its amazing what a little paint and cleaning will do... But i dont think its a LT250r... the 250r's were 2 stroke...

I am a two stroke lover myself, but there is no need to be like that here, if you want to bash 4-strokes, go to E2S.

That is an LT 230 S not an LT 250 R, so I changed the name of the thread accordingly. I used to have one of those, mine was an '86, my first "grown-up" quad, I loved that thing. I came across a site you may find helpful if you need any parts. New Suzuki LT230S Quad Sport Parts at Vince's Cycle

      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.

      Ok everyone, I've been rebuilding the top end of my vinson 500 and here is my problem. After replacing all the gaskets and getting my timing set I was all set to place the head on when I realized I had left one of the two small sleeves that position the cylinder head on the base. To go back and put it in would require another complete tear down. This is one of those round cylindrical tubes that the jug sits on. All bolts are in along with Indian head gasket shellac on both sides of the gasket, my question is what might it hurt if I don't put it back in? Honestly I can't see where it will matter and setting the timing on this machine is a real bitch. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
