Made myself a new bumper.

Recommended Posts

I was cut off on a trail last weekend by a guy on an RM250, I tried to get out of the way, but in his panic, he crossed his bike right in front of me and I nailed him good. I ended up with a few scrapes on my left elbow and left rear hip area, a totaled bumper, a punctured tire and my allignment was knocke out of whack. He had a collapsed expansion chamber a sore pelvis, and a puncture wound to hid "unit". I straightened my allignment, plugged the hole in my tire and built me a new bumper out of some metal that I had laying around the shop. I started with a coulple of curved pieces that I welded together, and ended up with what you see on the quad. Here are a few pics of my creation.

That looks prety sweet dude, nice job! I can't tell you how many times I've tried to straighten or fix a bent or broken front bumper, and been so close yet have it go all to shit.

Thanks, I figure it didn't turn out too bad for just slapping a couple pieces of metal together that were laying aroung the shop. I could have done a better job on the finnish work, but I really just wanted to get something on there that will serve its purpose for now.

      I was wondering if I could fit a bumper for a different quad on my 300ex? There is one in motosport that I want but they dont make it for mine. If so which one?

      So yesterday I picked up a 07 polaris sportsman 800efi stealth edition for 3k.  Will lead a pic ltr.  In good shape.  Here's what's wrong with it:
      The rpm needle doesn't work just like my other sportsman... not too worried ab that.
      The motor doesn't sound like it's running quite right and doesn't feel like it has much more power than my 500.  I'm thinking it needs a tune up and some fresh oil..  but also it feels like it's running rich.  It's a little buggy when you goose the throttle and sometimes farts when you let off (like I little backfire out the exhuast). I'm gonna check timing and valave clearence on the motor first but thinking of putting a tuner on it? Anybody got a suggestion?  Mainly looking for more power.
