Any updates on the freshening up

Yes though no worthy pics right now.  Will update when they're ready.

Chassis was stripped and since it uses 450R footpegs, a little fab work was needed to give clearance for the CR500 Linkage bolt.  Chassis is now being blasted, after that will go to the painter.   Dan Swan from Splat Designs is going to touch up the orange plastics and then paint the frame. 

Swingarm was sent back to Stellar to clearance the pivot tube, that's complete and now waiting to get it back.  Hoping to get that chromed in time. 

Front shocks were sent out to @Eschonda for his assessment and likely rebuild/revalve/respring (or some flavor of that).  Last year I had them rebuilt/revalved/resprung last season but I couldn't get them where I liked them.  While a very reputable shop did the work, they're back East, and I'm not sure that was the best choice for how I only ride dunes.  Anyways, Schmidty has those now and looking forward to getting them dialed in. 

Other than that, just need to order a bit of hardware and reassemble.

Looking like we won’t be making it at this time

Don't like to hear that!

I think we should get pics from last year and info into dirtwheels. They usually have those group pics in the back.

Also I like the idea of coming up with a flyer. So guys could print it off this site. Than put them in local shops.

Awesome ideas Gene! 

Let's discuss "group" events (for any 'ol person that shows up there) we want to have down there.  What do you guys want to have?
- Lunch meet n greet on the sand - BBQ up some burgers and dogs? 
- Group photo at XX location
- Group ride

Bummer since Sun & Mon weather looked nice at the coast. 

Suspension and Chassis / Re: Brake pad options

Yeah pads are interchangeable between all 4 years.  Rotors on the other hand are not.

Not that I'm at all hard on rotors and pads riding sand but I've always gone with Galfer and/or EBC.

Engine and Bottom End / Re: CYLINDER POLISH
« on: February 12, 2019, 12:49:08 PM »
Depends on what you want out of the polish job.  I'd use him or I use Cascade Innovations - their on-site polisher is really great (short of using say a hot rod pre-chrome prep polisher for way more the price).  Be aware that most "atv" related polishing shops will just hit the big surfaces with a wheel and you'll be left with pitting and unpolished areas on inside corners.  IF this is an issue for you, make sure to discuss this ahead of time - those little areas are time consuming to sand/polish but make a world of difference to me (and also drive the cost up). 

Carburetor, Intake, and Exhaust / Re: Carb alignment problem
« on: February 11, 2019, 03:14:48 PM »
carb alignment is spot on with sonny's intake for me with my 87 trx frame. I still have no room for the spacer plate. arlen ported and built my esr 363 cylinder. his reply was he also cleans up the inside of the cylinder where the reed block bolts in and it would be fine for me to run without a spacer. also sonny's intake is designed more for an esr reed block. a v-force 3 does not match up you will have to taper the plastic reed cage/block out a bit to get a better flow.

Awesome to hear douglas!

I'd imagine the spacer makes it worse since moving the carb back further makes it difficult to get the air filter boot on.  What are you running for an airbox / airfilter setup?  Have you tried the UPP manifold?  It's much more pliable than those OEM type boots IMO. 

Administration/Moderator Questions / Re: PM Box Structure
« on: January 31, 2019, 02:08:10 PM »
Thanks guys - that takes me back.  I'm not sure what structural modifications we can make to exactly mimic that.  I will say though that the initial PM page is pretty similar (while it shows content of a PM at the top) it shows a list of PM's below that (like the vbulletin one). 

Additionally, if you'd like your old replies to be saved then simply hit the "quote" button instead of reply.  If I'm hearing what some of you are saying, you'd like the "reply" to just "quote" everything anyways?

Alright I don't remember my password on ATVriders so can anyone help describe what it was?  I'm guessing you clicked "Private Messages" then taken to a new page with a list of individual PM's, you click on a particular PM and it takes you to another page to answer it?

i liked how the PM box in ATVriders was.

Taking me way back!  Not sure I can even remember how that layout was. I'll see if I can find out.  But not sure what options we'd have to re-arrange this.
