Hello all.
The perpose of this thread is for everyone to post anything that have done to their quad today or in that last few.
This is not ment to take place of build threads and such. Its just to post things like, I changed the fluids today, I got some new tires, I mounted some new lights, or I pulled out a stuck bik and things like that.

I did a search and came up empty so maybe you guys will like this thread.

If the mods do not see this as OK or I posted in the wrong spot please act as you must. If this thread is well received maybe someone could make it a sticky.

Thank you all

I installed my twist throttle, changed the oil/filter, and also put on air scoops.

I changed the oil and filter twice this year, I used a Napa filter and rotella 15w40 oil and a new spark plug. I put a new carb on it, and built a custom snorkel. Then I mounted a 10 inch led light bar from Napa to the handle bars. The rear brakes where shot so I pulled the cover and found worn out pads and a busted drum so all that was replaced. The diffs and transfer case oils changed. A 2500lb winch with custom mounting plate. I also made some CV axle guards.

I rejetted my TRX250X for the winter and then realized an o-ring fell out when I put the carb back in, loaded down my 15' Rancher with 200 lbs of corn (something a SRA does very well I might add), bought some heated grips for my Rancher as a Christmas gift for $10, and I went to the local stealership just to look around and after seeing the 2016 TRX250X I cried a little bit on the inside when I went back home to see my 2014 TRX250X.

That bike held the weight well.
I had 150lbs on the front rack of my 4trax once and there is a spot I ride that I GI through a small ditch and I can do a wheelie coming out. That 300 toted the front tires with 150 on the front rack, and came back down when I let it.

This weekend I built some floor boards and some hand guards and mounted another light.
I built my floor boards from 1in square tubing, and some flat expanded metal. They are 16 inch long and 11 wide. I did remove the factory foot pegs to get them on. I did have to get creative around the brake pedal and I had to bend the lever also. I welded the floor boards straight to the side of frame. I had to turn the welder down twice because I kept blowing holes in the frame and having to weld them up. I thought the frame rails where thicker than what they are.
The hand guards I built out of 11 ga 6inch wide and 10 inch long. I used a log splitter and some custom attachments for bending plate I had laying around. Then just a welded them to the pieces of 1 1/2 angle I have between my handlebars. The handlebars have tabs the angle bolts to and the angle holds my light bar. I did have to use some 1/2 in rod to go from the angle to the hand guards.
The new led light I mounted is a led flood light with 5 led bulbs. I mounted it to a tab on the rear rack above the muffler. I wired it the same switch my front light bars is on.

I've had 13 50lb bags of onions loaded onto the quad once before, and boy oh boy was she loaded.

Pulled all the front plastic off and proceeded to straighten the front bumper and racks from a previous owner wreck of some type. Managed to get everything more or less straight and then even get all the bolts & mounts to line-up well enough to reassemble the framework. Ground/Sanded off the rust and painted with Rust-Oleum Automotive. At least it's better than it was and shouldn't rub the plastic nor continue to rust.

Next step, back on with the plastics.
