Where do you take your cat?

Recommended Posts

As time goes by and I approach 2000 miles on my H1 engine I am starting to think about what mods I want to do and what stock parts need to be replaced. My friend has a 400 and almost has 2k and has done alot less service work than I did. Well I think the larger tires and the places I take my cat are the reason. So where has your cat been?

I would also be intrested in what mods you have done.

Well besides being on its side from a 35mph +/- rollover here are some pics.

I rarely get photographed as I am usually the one with the camera. I passed 2,500 miles last week and my machine is still stock. Only replacement parts aside from the usual oil and diff changes has been the brakes and recently tires.

Still cannot post attachments, even tried converting them to GIF's first :aargh:

Mine's pretty stock except the bumpers, winch, hand guards, etc. The one thing that made a difference was the 26" Bighorns on ITP's. They made it a lot easier to manage. So far the only thing that should get some attention is the spike load dampener. It's not slipping bad, but I should get it replaced while I still have warranty. I've only got around 600 miles on it so far, so there's plenty of time for something to go on it.

Mike, I love that pic of you crawling out of the mud pit

I've got a few pics, but having some trouble. It says they're not a valid image.

they might be to big....if you would like i can post the pictures for you..you can email me at [email protected] or you load them on photobucket.com and just copy and paste the image code

I resize mine down to 640 X 480 before trying to attach them. Still says invalid image.

I didn't make it out of the pit because my tires were worn out. I plan to put the bighorns on my LE rims when I get a few $$ together. For now I am using the ex-swampcat tires :coolgleamAc:

It was sure fun watching that cat claw, though! It was amazing what you were able to do with those old tires. Your new/old stockers will be a lot better, but wait till you get the Bighorns, what a difference.:yes:

I had those tires on too long. 2,300 miles. I was feeling the turning being effected by the wear. Even the new/used stockers I feel a big difference. Can't wait to get the bighorns.

After last weekend the Kitty is getting some work done. Oil change, and all the stuff. Started heating up again so this time I pulled the radiator right out, sure enough looked ok from the front, but blocked in the back.

Well only a week left till Fishers you will see a whole new cat when I post some pics. She had the carb cleaned and runs as strong as ever. Hope its enough to push those 29.5s with the stock clutching.

Yep everything is bedlined. The graphics are from Arctic FX. Thanks for the compliment. It took a few weeks to accomplish. I'm working on clutching now.

I had Airdam machine my primary, well another one. I can lift the front end with 27s off the ground no problem now. I didn't get a chance to ride with the 29.5 outlaws yet.

My goal is to be able to turn the 29.5s but still be able to trail ride.

Did you just mod the dry end of the clutch or the wet end also?

I just tried the clutch out with the 29.5s on and it made a huge diffrence. Have to get in some sticky mud and see if anything else needs to be done.

      Hi guys I have a 2003 Arctic 250 4X4 it starts idles and runs great for about 10 min. then it spits and sputters and dies but it starts right up like nothing happened idles good till you give gas and it does it again let off the gas and it's idling great again this goes on for about 15 to 20 min. and then it takes off runs good all day like nothing was wrong.
      I cleaned the carburetor it looked like a new one inside found a little gunk in one orifice, new air filter no crimped lines air line to tank good I did put a meter on the battery idling it said 16.5 V that's high I think would a voltage regulator cause this?
      Suzuki shop wanted to sale me a stator for $556.00 but said it could be something else also thought I'd see what you guys say about it
