Suspension and Chassis / Swingarm Skid plate
« on: April 07, 2020, 01:35:34 PM »
I hope everyone is healthy and staying safe.  ;) I need some help. I recently installed the 86 dog bone and rear shock linkage, to my 88 frame. The purpose was to lower the rear, which it did nicely. I knew the 88 swingarm skid plate would not mount up, because of the lowering of the shock. The 86 plate has the extra clearance for the shock, but the mounting holes are in a different location. Does anybody have an 86 swingarm, that can get me some mounting hole X & Y dimensions? What's different about the 87 swingarm? When you buy the plates, they comes as 86 only, 87 only and 88-89. I appreciate any info. Thanks.

Carburetor, Intake, and Exhaust / UPP Intake Boot Ripped

UPP oversized boot tore like torqued. Maybe from the ridged ESR filter mount to the frame. Need to re-think for flexibility.

Does anybody mount their tires manually? I'm having more trouble finding a shop to mount, ATV sized tires. I was thinking about taking this on myself.

Suspension and Chassis / Heel Guards w/o Nerf Bars
« on: April 26, 2019, 10:11:23 PM »
Iíve searched. Canít find a manufacture that makes this style any more.

Loren, can we make it so?

I have a very nice Pro Circuit T-4 exhaust. I purchased new, for my personal 450. Nice upgrade from the stock system. Pro Circuits quality is among the best. This system has a lot of use left. Has a hole repaired on the underside. Once mounted, out of view. Iím posting for you closet 450 riders or your friends.  ;D

$175.00 Plus the ride.

Suspension and Chassis / Rear Shock Linkage
« on: February 21, 2019, 02:06:54 PM »
I need some correct info. I believe the 86 rear dog bone (1) and rod assy (4) were 1 inch longer. Can this setup be use on an 88 frame and shock? Will it sit lower or higher in the rear?

Still looks lean? Arlan recommended a needle (CEL), going in the opposite direction, that I thought it needed.

For Sale - Parts / ESR TRX5R Pipe and Silencer ** SOLD **
« on: March 01, 2018, 01:08:07 PM »
Selling a ESR TRX5R pipe and silencer. This pipe was a revised version of the TRX5. Supposedly adding more bottom end, to the already good mid and top. As the pictures show, the chrome is discolored and a little rust around the mount and cylinder section. No dents. Overall, still a nice upgrade for someone not looking for show quality. The silencer is a couple years old, it's in really good condition. Repacked with very few hours.
No longer needed. Making room. $200.00 shipped to continental 48. SOLD.

« on: January 19, 2018, 07:04:14 PM »
Wow, are shocks crazy money.  :o My rear stocker needs some love. Probably best to buy new. Jet Suspension offers one of theirs for $800. I ride flat farm land and trails. No jumping. Are there any other options? Thanks.

I know when things are free, we humans get accustom to using free. This Photobucket charge for 3rd party hosting, is a bit high. Need some input on a alternative site. Thanks.  ;)
