Its been a while since I posted an update, I have been pretty busy with other things. The discolored white gas tank has been annoying me and I wasnt sure what to do about it.. I did a lot of research and some people reported good results using salon

It's been a few weeks since I posted, so thought I'd take a few photos & post. Have been doing a bunch of little things. I had to get a new front axle for it as the axle that was on it was not the right one. The axle i had was correct for my front

I've been spending some time researching sprockets for the ATK. CanAm used to make a ATV, the Ds650, that used the same spline(22tooth & 22mm/24mm cross distance), but the Ds650 used a 530 chain. Well, Rotax also sold that engine to BMW for their

Some more work done, though its been slow going. Benn doing a lot of on-line searching for info on different things. The White Power 4054 USD forks are different than any Ive ever worked on before. After what seems like 10hrs of searching, I think I've

Well, I'm not 100% familiar with this bike, but, I am learning. It is supposed to come with Talon billet hubs front & rear, but looks like mine just has a Talon rear. So, theres a few things going on right now. I'm sorting through the incorrect front

A little more done with the bike, finished stripping the frame and cleaned/degrease it and went over it with Scotch-Brite & degreased again before paint. I'm very happy with the color. I was looking for a brighter red than what was original. I think

I took the top end of the engine apart the other day and found the piston burned out at the locating pin. So, time to order a piston. Oddly enough, the compression was 165psi like this.

The piston I ordered is for a SkiDoo/Rotax 503 & 521 ... more »

Got the frame stripped, but before the engine came out, I did a compression test. I thought, cool, a healthy 160psi. But, I pulled the head and to my dismay, found the piston burned out at the ring locating pin.(probably over heated cyl, pin ... more »
