Looks like you are off to a great start! I know how you fell. My first was in shambles when I bought it. Every bearing was worn out and needed replacing; and the frame was cracked. Now the only part I have left from my original quad is the rear brake reservoir! LOL

Thanks man. It's probably a good thing that I took it slow and went through the quad. I've learned a lot about the platform and found some things to fix that I might not have immediately noticed otherwise.

Rear brake, tires and a hood is all I really have let on the to do list. I'm getting anxious for fall.

OEM coolant reservoir, hose and rad shroud brackets on the way. They are original to the frame I purchased and look to be in very good condition. Thank you CeaserTheThird.

Helmet arrived from the Netherlands finally. Very impressed with the light weight and finish. I think it is a good value for the money.

Thanks. It wasn't expensive as some of the big name helmets, but it is really light weight. The top Shoei and Fox helmets this year weigh in around 3.3 pounds and the carbon Striker weighed in at 2.2 pounds. 


I'm currently cleaning behind my stator cover. A part of the gasket or possibly the grommet where the wires feed through gave way and let a lot of very fine dust and dirt back there. I've been told not to get anything back there wet and I've also been told to use Dawn and water to clean it then blow dry. What do you fellas say?

I pull the stator covers on my R's regularly because there notorious for letting water & other things inside. Especially after washing them its a good idea to pull the cover & check for moisture.
overkill is an often underrated achievement

Thanks. How would you go about with cleaning? Water or no water? I'm really not sure if the stator and pickup can get wet or not.

WD-40 I wouldn’t use water it’s what caused the rust to begin with

Thanks. I had planned on a good coating after the cleaning either way. I will try it for cleaning the dirt and caked up contamination.

Still fine tuning the carb. I will most likely be looking for a new cylinder to have ported for low end or possibly find one to trade mine for. As much as I love the hit I need something more friendly for the tight woods. I'm going to see how I feel about it after a trip this Thanksgiving.

I've installed an OEM coolant tank, OEM rad shroud brackets and a TM Designworks frame pad. Fixing my rear brake and buying tires are the two big things I need to get done. The rest is pretty small.

Here's a pic I took while riding yesterday.

Just go for a 363, it's a ton of fun in the woods!

I think you should give a different pipe a shot first.

You know, I told myself that last night. I keep seeing so many trx5 pipes. I should try one out.
