    that a downhill race quad? and how do you get it back up the hill in a truck around the other side? LOL j/k. whats up with the CT big bore motor? I'm curious how they did it but I think I'd rather have a stroker personally but their the builder not me so I dunno much.

    Shearer make some sick pipes, I believe he builds qs pipes. I want an AAEN or Shearer depending on price point I will likely get the AAEN, I have some sorta FMF on mine.

    also how much is CT charging for the engine work? I would love to get a sick motor setup in mine. would really prefer a hybrid at that point I think but finding a cheap zilla motor was a one time deal I put off causing my buddy to let it go somewhere else

    I can't remember exactly how much CT charged for the head/jug work. I'll look up my receipts and try to PM you.

    Eventually I'm thinking about adding a Honda crank to the bottom end to get 2mm more stroke.

    lmk how that works out. I really wanna do something to get it to a 310cc just for the heck of it lol. I think I put pix up of mine, if not, I'll make sure I do at some point. I have a thread in the pic section on QRHQ.

    thanks for the help on the costs. if it's over $1,000 I'll be looking at a zilla hybrid lol

    I decided to powder coat the wheels I've already got gold, so I went ahead and ordered the paint. It's Interpon Golden Gauge. It should be here next week. I'll paint a sample first, and if I like the results I'll sandblast paint and cook the wheels.

    I can't wait and will be sure to post pics. I'm hoping for that "stock" old school look.

    My next purchase will probably be a '87 Lt500 intake boot because, even though I already have a brand new Lt250 boot, I'm not sure I can stretch it around the 41.5mm carb.

    To try to squeeze all the power I can out of this bike, I would like to try the custom built V-Force reeds from Tudor's Performance.

    Then, I eventually wanna get a nice aftermarket steering stem. They just look cool and my factory stem is "tweaked" just a little bit at the top. You can't tell until you remove it, but it will bug me until I replace it.

    Also to shave a few pounds, besides me going on a diet, I want z400 front spindles since they are aluminum with these billet rear hubs from LSR to match in the back and I want to get a aluminum brake hub from LSR.

    Never ending project but that's my dream setup anyway. One piece at a time I guess.
