  1. I wouldn't get too upset about the number of visits the page got. Most are probably guests or just the " one question and I'm gone" members. I'm sure the usual crowd on here would do something, just gotta wait till they get on here. My chrones is alright right now . I had a total collectomy in 91 on valentines day lol. Lucky me. Just on meds now ,but the modification takes some getting use too lol. Good luck!!! Like the bike btw
  2. Good on you. Very noble !! I always give to the chrones and collitis charities. .I'm living with chrones in the most extreme way.. I'll look at the donation page when I'm off work and have time.. I'll give something
  3. Yup. Did that 3 times . My 98 sportsman 500 was a demo ,my 09 850xpeps was a demo and my 11 pro r 800 (sled) also demo lol. Would always try to go that route . My sled retailed at 15k,I paid 10k plus still got full warranty.
  4. I always try to finace. Payment is usually peanuts ,plus you can finace extended warranty into it. I'd rather have the money in the bank for other things. The dealers I've always dealt with offered in house financing, but you could always look at a personal loan for the difference, and add on your 2k. Line of credit would probably be the best bet. Also ,unless you are 100% sure of the atv you want,shop around for a demo.. get a great instant discount and still get full warranty.
  5. Do you guys guys have an active topics page? Seems pretty dead here ?

  7. I guarantee I'd find a way to flip it lol
  8. Here's a few. First two don't have rear spacers or bush lights yet lol
  9. I ride with a group of 6 guys. One of them started the Belair Atv club here. Pretty neat
  10. 98 sportsman 500,2 inch lift with spacers,27 inch swamp lites ,bush lights on front bumper ,clutched ,aeen silencer, hand/thumb warmers and windshield with rear storage box,and jerry mount on rear bumper
  11. I find Tapatalk kinda irritating lol
  12. The wife is normally on the home putter (business stuff)so I haven't got much of a choice doing the phone thingy lol. I find its way to easy to post while waiting in a line up ,on break at work or just wherever. Became normal for me
  13. I would have figured mobile would have helped the forums. Almost everyone I know,including myself uses a cell to surf the forums. Much more convenient than being tied to a putter
  14. Went to start the 500 Sportsman today ,got a turn over no fire. Well it started once,and stalled after 30 seconds. I thought it was out of fuel,so I poured in around 5 gallons and turned it to reserve. That's when it started then stalled out. The overflow line is pouring out has too. So I shut fuel off. Thinking float?
  15. My old 500 predator ,94 cell GPS My 500 Sportsman, 60,until I threw on a 2 inch lift ,clutched it and 27s...now 45 lol. Speedo My 850xpeps, almost 80 stock ,72 after 2 inch lift and 28s. Speedo . My pro r 800... 111.. and it's there. .now. like a light switch
  16. Yessir lol. Still safer than a bike..for me anyways
  17. I want one . http://www.ktm.com/x-bow/x-bow-r/
  18. My riding mower did this last year. Even tho I cleaned the terminals ,it wasn't good enough? I re cleaned and re tightened and away she went
  19. Where's Fox and Scully when you need them ?
  20. It's dynoed at 160.08 ,and it seems that most cat guys are dissapointed with it. Lower top end sluggish and concerns of it not being as accepting to mods as the dirty zuke. What are your thoughts
  21. 160 hp,yes. Top speed of the average 160hp sled is around 110mph. Highest recall on my 800 pro r was 111 . Mines only 150hp, but it hooks hard and pulls like crazy. Skis come up 6inchs if you hammer it at 70mph lol. The new 4stroke turbos are good for 200 hp stock,can get up over 300 hp ,and do around 115 mph stock
  22. The first movie was awesome. Beyond funny lol. This is in anticipation of the 2nd
