Which kit?

Which of the following Trinity ( for my 03 Blaster ) kits is better? A Trinity Big Bore 240 kit or a Trinity Stage II kit?

Re: Which kit?

There's no replacement for displacement . I'd go with the bigbore kit first , then add whatever you want to adjust the powerband and suspension mods , to compliment your riding style or terrain you ride most often . [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Which kit?

The stock suspension cannot keep up with the stock Blaster engine. Before upping the HP, I would do some suspension mods. Like +2 +1 a-arms, +2or3 swingarm, and either Works or Elka shocks. This will make your Blaster much more pleasant. Just a big bore kit alone will not do alot. You will have to go to at least a 34mm carb, V-Force reeds, pipe & silencer , to really see the gains of a big bore kit.

Re: Which kit?

I'm not sure what Blaster suspension parts sell for , but if they are close in price to 250R stuff , expect around $1,000 for A-arms and a swingarm and at least another $800-$1,000 if you want to upgrade to race tuneable shocks on both ends , then about $300 for a wider rear axle . I'd at least get the A arms , swingarm and axle first , you could ride it for a while until you were ready to spend the rest for the shocks , and the suspension will probably be a bigger improvement than the engine mods would on a stock suspended Blaster . Check Dirt Wheels and a few other ATV mags out to find people that sell what you want , most places have websites now , and you can look for the best price before you buy . Good Luck [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
