There is nothing wrong with a project that takes you a while...

This is a true statement....my quad sat for over a year. now it's parked agian, I got other obligations right now, I am trying to refit my front end with 400ex A-arms and 450r shock set-up so I can't even putz around the yard.

For the stripped bolts... you can get a bolt kit like red said for cheap and if the hole is stripped you have two options 1. Retap to a larger size or 2. helicoil them. Good Luck.

rebuild it.

My buddy bought a raptor 660 that didnt even start, not knowing anything about it, we tore it down and rebuild the whole thing, as a learning experience, now that thing starts like it's off the showroom floor, and he spent less than 1/2 of what the going price is for those right now.

Where are you located? If you in michigan I'd be willing to help you out, my garage is the local atv/powersports DIY shop.
