Here goes, I have a 300 4X4 Honda 1997, my son jumped and wrecked. Now if you grab the rear rack on the right side you can barley pick it up, then do the same on the left side and the machine tips right up. I replaced the front shocks thinking they were blown ,but no change.It hit hard comming down on the front right so I am thing that the a arms are bent back and causing the unstable front.It really worries me because going into a left tun it will go up on 3 wheels or tip up on a down grade if crossing a hill with the right side on the low side. Please help

That would be my guess also. Check the frame rails for flaking paint,thats a sign thats theres a bend.

YOu may be able to completely disassemble the frame bare set it on a level surface and as Saber suggested look for stress flakes in the paint it will be obvious you will probably see fresh rust (brightly colored orange) You may then be able to heat it a straighten it yourself or carry it to a metal fab shop and they would be able to repair it probably less expensive than buying another frame.

If you want to jump gat a quad designed for that those quads are heavy and are designed with one thing in mind....Getting you out of sticky situations, as you can already see jumping gets costly. goodluck and keep us posted
