I've been looking into buying a house and my rock buggy that I have been building for 5 years had to go... I sold most of the parts so I decided it was time for a new toy..

I found a 2008 RZR, its got ITP wheels/ ITP Terracross tires, front/rear bumpers and top. I threw some 4 point harnesses in it already and have a set of suspension seats left from my buggy that im going to try to put in it... I just ordered a UMP filter setup to do away with the crappy stock filter box. HID lights, Optima battery and exhaust are in the works for next month... Long travel and a few other thing are in the plans in the near future too...

That's good that you put in an optima as they are designed for massive shaking around I believe.

Optima batteries are not as good as you think. I use to work for them, you would not believe how many fail. But they are good about replacing at no charge. That was the nastiest job I have ever had.

Nice toy, can't wait to see the suspension work.

Finally had time to install my HID lights today... I got the kit off ebay from Burke moto pros..

Easy plug and go install, it only took about 30 min to install... You can tell the difference even during the day in my shop with the lights on...

They are just normal 3 inch harnesses used in drag racing, offroad racing ect... They are a lot better than the stock slim seatbelts they have in them...

Long travel should be here tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nothing on the motor yet... Probably do an exhaust and a clutch and go from there... I dont know if i want to build a motor or go forced induction... MCX express makes an awesome turbo kit that makes these things wild but i dont know if i want to spend that much money...

      So just as a general FYI, it might be good to check replacement parts before installing.  If possible, check clearances with a micrometer before going through the trouble of assembly.  I say this as I bought a new driveshaft yoke for a Kodiak because the ujoint dropped a cap and got the yoke in a bind...blowing the yoke and middle drive gear to shreds.  So I replaced the middle drive gear and bought a new yoke and ujoint kit from Caltric.  Caltric is usually pretty solid replacement parts.  The new yoke however was a good 4mm too narrow for inside lock ujoint caps.  Disappointing since it came as a kit from Caltric.
      Ended up taking an angle grinder to the new yoke and thinning material off to get it to the needed 41.25mm opening size.  Sucks having to disassemble everything again and start over but my fault for trusting replacement parts.  Nearly 40 years of turning wrenches and I made a rookie mistake.

      I recently read an article about restoring or at least improving the looks of faded and discolored plastic body parts. In the article it suggested using a 50/50 mixture of boiled linseed oil and paint thinner. You mix it up and apply it with a brush or rag to rub it in and remove the oxidation. I curious to find out if anyone has had experience with doing this and what was their short/long term results of doing so. I would hate to try it and find out that a few weeks/months down the road my plastic body parts self destruct.

      Damn, it took 30 years of driving to cause my first accident, and on Friday the damn 13th. Did a low speed rear end into the back of a lifted truck and got into it's trailer receiver. The only place it made contact with was at the very front center of the hood close to where it latches. Unfortunately the impact was enough that there's a longitudinal hump in the middle of the hood now, bowed 6 inches on each side above the quarter panels, which weren't involved at all thank God. Both my headlights are cracked at the top, but not because they got hit; I think it was because the hood and it's latch was pushed back during the collision possibly deforming the support structure, causing the to separate. The hood is lifted up about 3 inches above each headlight and when looking in at the support material just behind each headlight, one side shows cracks and the other cracks and about a 1/2 gap in the material. Can't tell but it may resemble fiberglass, not really sure? My best guess is that the whole front bumper is gonna have to come off and that entire front support piece be replaced. Any advice on how hard this can be? I do a lot of my own work but I really don't want to be getting into this especially with the weather getting so bad now.


      When I go junkyard shopping for parts, what year Tauruses are compatible with my '02?

      Hi everyone.
      Currently have a 2004 King quad 300 4wd.
      There's a few parts I need to get 4wd working again and also have a crack in the engine crankcase(big trucking rock). 
      Replacement engines are horribly expensive so looking for a half decent site to buy parts /kits that also have detailed diagrams and part numbers.
      Going to disassemble weld crack and give the engine a freshen up.
       
      Any recommendations please
