If anyone is interested in parts feel free to hit me up because im going to have quite a bit of stuff that will no longer be used. I do not want to sell my stock wheels and tires or my stock seat. My steering stem is bent all to hell so i would not sell that either. Plus all my plastics are trash and some other components are beyond reliable use.

Parts i know i wont use that are decent:
Stock a arms
Stock front and rear shocks
Stock air intake and air box
Stock rear axle
Ac front bumper
Stock rental fat bar
Various motor internal components
Stock head lights
Stock brake lines
(Maybe stock wire harness)
Stock control assembly
Stock foot pegs
Stock head pipe

I will update the list as i go and im in no real dire need to get rid of any of this but i thought i would put it out there for anyone interested.

Thank you!
Im also curious why you only recommend oem crank bearing and gaskets. Do certian aftermarket ones fail frequently?

Yes sir

Hotrods bearings are nearly as robust as oem.

and oem gaskets are the go to, lots of guys have leaking issues with aftermarket gaskets.

I’d recommend new oem head bolts or the ARP kit from kms when you reinstall the head

I received some goodies from Tranghese Design today! I purchased a lowered sub frame off one of his personal quads and also picked up his chain guide adaptor with a new TM Designs Chain guide to match my skid plate.
