Here's what I just picked up for $400, plus a 4 hour drive... Not a lot there but its got potential
As lots of you may know I was originally going to find an old 250r, but once this deal came up I had to snatch it... anyways back to the point.. Here's the build list that is hopefully going to be done by the end of summer...
ENGINE
-new left crankcase
-new updated OEM crank (not going to balance it)
-Hi comp CP or JE piston
-RE ported head with +1 valves
-scendrum bored carb...Just gunna use a stock 04/05 I think
-CFM airbox with UNI
-Everything will get new gaskets, o rings, bearings, seals etc. throughout the motor
SUSPENSION/CHASSIS
-Flex bars
-extended steering stem...I have a stocker so I might piss around with it at the fab shop
-Standard travel shocks, redone by dirtworks or I may get one of those triple rate conversion kits off of EBay and be the Ginny pig and try em' out
-+ 2 a arms and rear G-force axle with anti fade lock nut
-06 rear end...already have the swinger bolted up, waiting for a link and rear shock to come in
BODY
-white and purple color scheme on this build, white mainframe, purple sub frame and swing arm, with some other colors added elsewhere.
-Going to try get me some newer white plastics when I get a chance and do a purple hood with it too
-AC nerfs, bumper
-pro armor grab bar
-some sort of white and purple bead locks wrapped in a set of Interco 22 inch swamp lites in the rear and a set of GBC (razr 2 looking things) on the front...
-For lighting Im gunna get one of those lights off of Mamito I think
Its going to be my trail quad and the trails can get pretty nasty in some spots. Like I said I'm hoping to have it done by summer. All my work is going into this right now Because I am in desperate need of a trail bike. below are some pics of how it looks after tonight.. I'm hoping for a little over 50 hp so we'll see what happens.. Thanks.

Noooooooo I've been planning a purple and white build for a while haha

2 quick things;
1 - Cant bore your stock carb like you can an FCR (I found my FCR on thumpertalk from a CRF250 for 100bucks and Matt @ Dynomite charged $100 to bore it)
2 - I'm running the HR+3 but I had it balanced (oem bearings as well) Crankworx took two months to do the work and charged me $400, just an FYI if your interested

Looks good I'm tuned in for updates !

i changed it to flat black, and purple. And Damn, I just sold my FCR that I had. So ill hold off on that idea for a while...and there Is a guy buy me who balances out cranks so hopefully the turn around time is better. My other option is buying one of those pre balanced stroker/big bore kits...just don't know if I feel like spending that much, nor feel like going that big. I have no need for a 500cc+ trail quad.. thanks for the info chronic

I photoshopped these about 2 years ago.. Just waiting on the ambition to do it, which I may have now that I've got my own PC gun :D DSC_0866.jpg photo3-12.jpg
