Welp, the damn kids managed to hit a damn tree on my damn quad. Not sure what happened, but there was nothing I could do. They weren't hauling azz, but the kid hit the left front tire on a tree hard enough to turn the quad on its side. Kids are fine, and I got it flipped over really quick. I let it sit a while and she fired right up. Anyway, the left front tire is totally trashed. So bent and wobbly.

So:

I took it off, I took the brake drum off, and i noticed the bearing had 'slipped'. I don't know how else to described it but it was cockeyed in the drum. I re-seated it. The drum now SEEMS to run true. The wheel is still trashed. I cannot really tell if anything else is bent. Is there really anything else to check on these? Nothing is broken, and I don't see any obvious bends. Tie rods are still straight. Is there anything left to do but replace the rims?

Da*****, I JUST got this thing all up and running earlier this year as chronicled here on the forum.

Ya its been a while! Bummer, but I'm glad the kids are OK. Same kinda thing happened with one of my neighbors a while back except the youngest fellah fractured his forearm when he hit the ground. Wish ya luck!

Good thing no one was hurt

If I remember right the front rim on that 200SX is unique to that bike , different lug pattern , I have a whole bunch of parts from 2 200 SX's that I would like to get rid of cheap , are you close to New Orleans

Not really. The thing with this quad is that the rear wheels on it are not stock. I would like to go ahead and replace the rims as a set with some original rims. Now is as good a time as any. The rims were already bent, so not a huge deal. They would shake the quad when running down the road. Now the one is REALLY wobbly. LOL. I just hope nothing else is damaged.

Do you have any front end parts or rims? I dont mind paying for shipping. Its cheaper than driving there. LOL.

yes , I have a complete front end , a-arms , knuckles , brakes , don't know if I still have the front rims , which are unique like I mentioned , I pretty sure I have ditched two sets as they would have been useless to me , also have the complete rear axle , with swing arm , hubs , sprocket , etc , seats , tanks , don't want to sell any engine parts as one day I am going to put that engine in a cart ----- I have never shipped much in my life and really don't want to get involved in it , I would like for the person to see it in person and have no issues to deal with

we had a lot of fun with the 200sx's , very fast , very maneuverable , runs like a bat out of hell , took a licking and kept on ticking

Sweet. Well, See if you have any of the front rims. I know shipping sucks, but the purchase would be with the understanding that the parts are 'as is'. I buy all sorts of things off ebay for this quad. Same thing. I can't expect parts to be perfect or pristine when they are from a quad from 1986. As for the other parts, I wont know if I need those until I get some pretty true rims on it. If new rims that are true don't run straight, then I have to replace the drum/hub too. If that doesnt run straight, then the spindle and so on....

Id love to help you clear out your parts bin, but for the sake of my sanity, let's hope I don't need to go that far. LOL.
