Hey guys, I’m trying to do a build with my 300 fourtrax and want to make my own 6 inch lift! I need too know how to make my own extended arched a arms for the front and how to modify the drive shaft for that?
If you have no idea already on how to make them I would advise you to not attempt to do it.
You need a welder, tube bender, bench drill and knowledge in fab work.
You don't modify the front shaft/s, you replace with new, Cobra I believe are a good brand.
As for the rear end, youl need a swing arm stretch and a shaft stretch. To extend the shaft you simply cut it in half and bore a piece of solid to the shaft diameter and press together to the desired length.
So, for the rear, you need a Lathe and a shop press.
Knowledge in geometry ----- then trail and error ---- a lot of people's first lift builds were failures , after a few tries to get a model and height right , they build off templets and duplicating ----so builders are not going to be too sharing , about giving info that they learned and are making money with
I paid a well known 300 lift builder to build me a kit for the front of my 450 , it was built pretty and I had to take it off and send it back to him for credit , as the geometry was off just a little and there were numerous problems , and I spent hours trying to make it work
A lathe and a press to build a swing arm extension ?
A lathe to extend the shaft fish... Bore a piece of solid bar to the diameter of the shaft and then press the ends of the shafts into the new sleeve. A tight fit eliminates any distortion when welding and also reduces chances of it being misaligned
Could bodge it with a close fitting piece of tube I guess but I certainly wouldn't lol
Hello everyone I'm very new to the forms. I've never created an account on any form. I have however read many of the discussion topics that have been posted on them and I usually find the solution to my problem. However my problem this time I have not fount the answer for maybe I haven't looked...
I started working on this quad trying to figure out why the neutral light would not come on, I read through multiple forums seeing that this was a fairly common issue in these quads and my neutral switch was good and found the issue was something else and wanted to share my experience Incase...
So i've recently picked up a 300, had a brand new carb on it and would idle fine, just when giving it gas or in 1st gear it would spit and sputter. I had plans to go ride with a few friends of mine so we took it down and rode for the weekend, and didn't give me any problems until the last day...
