the three wheelie

Recommended Posts

i have been lurking here a while and i thought i would post up my build when i saw some cr500 trikes . this is a reverse trike i built using an 88 cr500 and a yamaha blaster front.

the motor is race ported by gss race porting and has a 44mm mikuni vm carb, the swingarm is extended 6" and i added a third shock up front to help in cornering stability.

eventually i will add 4' extended a arms and fox shox. this will be for cruisin camp to camp out at ther sand dunes and just for playin. due to the design it will have tons of understeer and the rear will want to flip around so it will be a drifting machine. but thats the fun part!

oh believe me brah, i have been in the three wheeler world a looooong time and im no noob when it comes to moddin em' i just thought id do somethin different this time. here is one of my last builds, it is a custom atc110 rear with a yz250 front and a seca550 motor

trike.jpg

unfortunatly this trike was destroyed, i built it for a guy and he came and paid for it

(2600$) and i warned him DO NOT TAKE IT ON STEEP HILLS. HE ASSURED ME HE KNEW THE DANGERS OF THREE WHEELERS SO I HAD HIM SIGN THE CONTRACT AND HE LEFT.

not an hour later i get a call, "chris!, help im pinned i think i broke my leg"

i go out there and he had unloaded taken it first thing up a big hill and tried to turn without any momentum it flipped and crushed his ankle. the wheeler had flipped and rolled all the way down the hill bout 300 yards and wedged itself in a gully. it was mangled and dead.. i had to have him ride flat in the back of my truck to the hospital. sad sad demise for the coolest trike i ever rode.

I really have no comment other than maybe this should be in the quad forum...............

you see...........WE OUTLAW TRIKERS live by a code

1 god

1 country

1 FRONT wheel

who you kidding? your no OUTLAW! your just some flunkie moderator of a lame 3 wheeler message board.

besides everyone knows all your front tires leak air.

I remember when dirt wheels built a reverse three wheeler out of a Yamaha BW. I can't imagine having the power of a CR 500R. That's got to be a sketchy ride!!!

Are you saying Im a sell-out.....NEVA!!!!:aargh:

Im glad you took a moment out of your time from fabrication snorkels for your local alt125riders to respond:biggrin:

you may take my quote for reset on your webpage...you know,"the 1 god, 1 couuntry, 1 front wheel" thingy

but 1 thing quads have in common with trikes is the rear end...not the front

out here in the sand we call em BIGFOOTS....take a 500...put a dual front tire from a tomahawk style bike...and that give you the ultimate dune Bike

At one time you used to stand up for the oppressed all knowing super triker in search of futuristic 3wheeled enlightenment.

sadly now you have become one of the oppressors who stands by and says nothing while the masses are deprived of the freshness of 11" of super travel and dealers overflowing with accessories that would make any flunkie junkie pawn his clapped out nudlfap missing bi*** trike

Im glad you took a moment out of your time from fabrication snorkels for your local alt125riders to respond:biggrin:

our super snorkels are precision engineered from unobtainium space alloy and is the perfect accessory for those Sr. thrillbillie festival frowning fascist over hyping know nothings

I don't like sloppy seconds so the last thing i want is for you to remove your sun dried sand clogged beak from a transplants stained shorts and try to stick up mine with your weak attemtp at gracing a true outlaw site

that fatty up front of the king of MX'rs looks as out of place as the flat fatty you run.

memo to mint-a-leak they stopped putting the fatty fronts on performance trikes when Honda though a 110 chassis could house a Elsinore engine.

You trikers certainly are a different breed aren't you? So much attitude, and abrasive sandpaper like love between you all.

I have a CR 500 powered quad, that is enough of a handful, I don't think I would want that motor in a vehicle with less weight in the front whether it be a bike or a trike. I have enough trouble keeping the front end on the ground with two front tires. I can't tell you how many times I have nearly flipped over backwards because of an accidental donut wheelie.

thank you for staying on the subject!

and i have had 4 cr5oo's in original form. , raced them from desert to hare scrambles to hillclimbs and i disagree, you cannot have too much power. its just like the old saying

"its always the dull knife that cuts ya" in other words say you are trying to climb a hill on a kx 85 or yz 80. you have to push it to its max to make any progress, and you will usually flip overin 1st gear. a cr500 you can use throttle control to ease your way up and have power to spare but its there when you need it. the bottom line is "throttle control"

yes if you are a panicky novice i would not reccomend it. but if you know how to use the power to your advantage the 500 will do you well.

.

you obviously ignored post #8 and continue to bump what may be an insult to 3 wheeler enthusiasts participating here......

while celebrating a thread by staying on subject...you overlook your error in misplacing it in the wrong forum

I will not be force fed something that isn't....comprende?

while the build has skillz to admire...the finished product is pretty much limited in applications

let me know when your renting it.........I need to dig some trenches for my new septic system

Don't feel bad man, this is sitting in my garage right now, when finnished, it will have no practical application either, but it is kind of fun to just build crazy stuff for no good reason.

It is quite comfy, my ex brother-in-law asked me to store the trike and the chair for him, then he disappeared. I just got a wild hair and decided to make a chair that I can drive around. That is a nice trench digger, has it ever actually made it up that hillclimb? From what I understand, only like 14 people have ever successfully climbed that hill.

BTW, I missed the post where you talked about power being your friend and using throttle control. I understand your philosophy there, I just have a problem with throttle control, I know how it works, I just can't let up sometimes when I know that I should. That is why that much hp in a lighter machine would be such a problem for me.

      So I have an 89 Yamaha moto 4 250cc and when I ride it, itll get hot after like 10-15 mins and then will just die and turn off.
      It's has new carb rebuild, new air filter, new battery, new spark plug so I don't think it's a crack in the spark plug
      Can anyone help me?

      1996 4x4 Timberwolf rearend width. Can someone with some knowledge of these machines answer this question for me please. Are all 4x4 timberwolves this narrow in the rearend? These tires are so close the right one actually rubs the muffler.  Thinking about seeing if there are any spacers out there for it. I need at least an inch more clearance.

      Hi all, Ive got a Hisun 400 quad and have p[osted before , thanks to all who answered and helped!
      I need a coolant recovery tank for this quad, i believe its a yamaha grizzly copy , the thing is the tank is not shown on any hisun manuals i can find, and looks different to what i expect on the yamaha pages. (the original part has been lost). Does anybody have a picture of the recovery tank in-situ on the early 2000’s grizzly ? This quad is killing me!
      hope you can help solve this final piece in my puzzle.

      I am in the process of puting it back together after replacing the DPS gearbox.
      The manual I have states that it will need to be flashed by a dealer. Is this still true?
      Also , I have a mystery bolt That I cannot remember where it goes. M6x 70 or so.  Hex head with a flat washer.I will try to attach a pic.
      Pic is no go for now....Cox issue I will try again later
      TIA

      I picked up a 2000 Big Bear 400 4X4 that was sitting around that I know nothing about. It will not start. I do have a red light when in reverse. When I take it out of reverse, I do not get a green neutral light, and when I push the start button the red oil light comes on but there are no noises, nothing else happens. How do I test the neutral switch and/or bypass it to see if I can get it to at least crank? And does anyone have other suggestions for me to try?
