Right now all the plastics and tank are off it as I was swapping ignitions. Once I get it back together, I will for sure get some pictures.

Well, only took 11 months, but it runs, ended up being the CR ignition. Put the OEM ignition back on and fired right up. The batteries in my meter were dead, so couldn't check the ohm readings of the CR ignition, but looks like the stator/flywheel is all one part number anyway, so can't just replace one piece. Not happy, since it is just over $300 for a new stator/flywheel assembly. Really makes me mad that I have less then a dozen rides on that ignition. May just say screw it and keep the OEM ignition, it has only let me down once in the 10 years I have owned it, and that was actually the Ricky Stator stator.

Oh well, took a few pics after I rode it around the block a few times. Hopefully I can get it out in the desert here in the next few weeks.

Figure it is time for an update. Unfortunately, quad has pretty much sat. Has maybe been ridden three times since the last post in this thread. Runs great, just life has been getting in the way of riding. My plan was to race all the local night races on it over the summer, so about two months ago I decided to see how the light mount would fit on the LSR frame. (It was intended for a OEM frame.) I got it to fit, but it was a pain, had to use a ratchet strap to pull it into position. Also mounted up the white plastics, since the fronts are already cut for the light mount, and picked up a Quad Tech desert seat.

I already missed the first night race, and due to other stuff going on, doesn't look like I will make any of them. Still have to run the wiring, but figured I would at least get a couple of pics of the lights on the quad. Sorry for the lousy pics, to lazy to move stuff around to push it outside.

Yeah, I live in Vegas. Juan over at Snail has done all my powder coating for the last 8 years. Always very happy with his work. His shop is about 5 minutes from my house.
