Anyone interested in going in on the tool (shaft holder for vice and flat bar with socket) to send around for members up here to use?
Anyway. I wemt and looked at a 08 800efi last wknd but the guy was a young farmer who claimed to only mid it. The unit was not mint at all but had only 1200 miles and about 100 hours homemade doors and a clutch kit. He sayd he rebuilt the top end of the motor once already too. So I was ify about that one so going to look at a 2011 800 with a few more accessories this morning. Just wondering what and how I cam check it over instead of test drivong and goin with my gut which I usually tend to do anyway. Im no mechanic but I temd to diy as much as possible on my trucks and whatever else I can so Im sure I can figire these things out eventualy to.
So i ordered a rack boss from superatv.com and got to work on it. all in all it turned out great. Took us about 45 minutes to tear it all down to the frame up front and then about 3 hours of fab work making the new mounting plate and redoing the steering mount.
I have been a little harder then most on my rzr its held up rather good but this thin 16 gauge metal was not cutting it. we used 12GA and made it double sheer.
I really want to get the S1000 but they are just so much money. So for now ill keep rocking the old 800xc.
Here are some pics of the front end work
When it broke on the trail i lost all steering since the mount tore off, i had to get atv winch and winch the rack back to the frame and suck it tight, worked really well to get me off the trail
Fix my shifting problem.as I did the work I checked, double checked and triple checked
to make sure everything was as it is supposed to be.
I installed my trans today and in back of my mind I knew or felt something wasn’t
I decided to start it up before I installed front drive line.My machine wouldn’t
Move.after some head and behind scratching I discovered my problem..
Can’t do nothing but laugh and go back in again.
Any input and advice would be appreciated.
