3 to 4-wheel Conversion Kits

Anyone have any experience with one of the above mentioned conversion kits? A friend of mine just picked up a Tri-Z 250 for cheap, but would like to see about making it a 4-wheeler. I told him I wasn't sure if the kits were any good (I think they bolt on, which would scare the hell out of me). Anyone know anything about these? I'd appreciate any info. Thanks.

Re: 3 to 4-wheel Conversion Kits

oh man, a Tri-Z 250 would be so sweet. is it running good? i would love to have a Tri-Z or a ATC250R. i have never heard of a conversion kit like you mention, what i have heard of is a kit that changes a 4 wheeler into a reverse 3 wheeler. i think it was made by Mike Tryke. sorry i couldnt help ya

Re: 3 to 4-wheel Conversion Kits

I have heard about these things, and they just sound like they aren't worth it. I bet you would just be better off buying a four wheeler, or a rolling chassis, then putting the motor on it that you want. No matter what, if you do this, it will be pretty inbred.

I agree. I believe the front forks are wasted, but the engine kicked over fine. I guess he would probably be better off trying to rebuild it back to what it was. Thanks for the input.

Re: 3 to 4-wheel Conversion Kits

If i remember correctly, they cost over $1000. i seen an article somewhere on it. they come with new front rims, tires, front frame that welds on, a-arms, shocks, and stearing parts. it was on, i think, atvconnection.com....

Re: 3 to 4-wheel Conversion Kits

3 wheelers are wheelie kings! If it's the forks that are the problem, I would look one ebay. I saw forks for a Honda ATC 250 on there for $50 and they looked brand new, and had a hub and axle. An aluminum wheel and nearly brand new tire was being sold right around it for aoub $10. I don't know about the Tri-moto's, but if you could find one on e-bay, I think that would be the way to go. Another idea would be to find the forks off of a ATC 250, and just get the front frame off of a 250 then weld the front part in the Tri frame, unless the bearings are all the same. Also look in salvage yards.

Re: 3 to 4-wheel Conversion Kits

My neighbore had one for his old moto-4 3-wheeler, i looked at it at first and told the guy he was full of crap when he told me it was a conversion kit, made in to a quad, it looked unreal, but i didn't take a real good look at the frame to see what he did.
