Hey guys,

I have always been a Yamaha Raptor guy but I needed something my son could grow into so I decided on a 2002 400ex that was in pretty good condition. Picked it up for around $2000 and ripped it apart. This was not a total rebuild, I have done many of those but this quad was already pretty clean. I rebuilt the carb, tossed the K&N in the garbage and installed a Pro Design ProFlo Kit, replaced the sprockets and chain, new brakes, rear caliper and rotor. Then a bunch of new powder coat, seat and new plastic. I was not a fan of the yellow plastic so I went red. It’s now time for me to take it on a few test rides to see if its ready. Beside the plastic I tried to keep to a budget and I am probably $3000 into the quad now. It was a fun little project. Makes me want to do another!

Did your son help you do the work?
We lost our son (17), 7 years ago this coming Monday. I cherish the memories of he and I working on projects together. The journey was better than the end result.

From the looks of it, my guess is a newer gen Camaro!

Should we start a poll? lol

Thanks guys! This year I will be riding it to get the bugs out. My son should be ready next year. hodge5, I am very sorry to hear that. I cant even imagine. He did help some but he has his own project going on right now. Being cold up here right now our time in the barn is limited and he is behind on what he has going.

Well, under the cover..
