Is this board just dead?
« on: December 27, 2017, 10:23:08 PM »
Is it just me, this board seems pretty dead not much activity ?? Maybe because they don't make this quad anymore and theirs only a few of us out here?

It's Dune and Desert season, everyone is out riding!
Really though we're just a dying breed and everybody seems to have gotten busy with life.

Yeahhhhh, it's kinda quiet around these parts. It's winter here in Michigan so no quad riding happening here. Gotta werk on the sleds now. Just cleaned out fuel systems on 2 sleds today that the gas came out yellow as dehydrated pee

Damn man, welcome back around! Hope all was well during your time away. Slim pickins on us old folks here lately. Wasn't it your cousin, maybe brother, that you used to ride with? Tell him I said hello. Been a long time.

Since my engine went boom 2 years ago I haven't been on here much. Took me a year to get a new engine put in from OMW. Went out once and found an oil leak (crack in the crank case) took me another year to fix the leak (which was just last week) from being busy with life.

And now it needs the carb rebuilt again since I let it sit with fuel over the winter.  :o and a new battery.

Wish I could just ride this thing intead of always fixin' it!

Oh well. not enough time or money these days. :-\

My engine is down as well. I lost my oil drain plug while at the dunes last year and the connecting rod went out a couple weeks later. Thought I struck gold when it went out (gold colored flakes in oil). That ended up throwing the connecting rod out the crankcase and the cylinder, that was fun. Now I've got a '00 bottom end that I'm going to split apart and put my '03 shift forks into.
In the meantime I managed to get a KTM 525 XC all done up with mods, quite different than the DS on all levels I'll say.
