Hooked up with 5 other fellas on Saturday and went for a 50 mile loop out near Sonoita. Awesome ride. Spend most of yesterday working on the quad. Picked up a couple skid plates, a throttle kit and a 6 pack rack. Can't figure out how that 6 pack rack is supposed to mount up. Didn't come with any instructions. It's made by armadillo, got it from Rocky Mountain. I'm going to give them a call today. Also picked up a FMF Q for it as well. That came with a 1 1/2 (approx) piece of flanged tube, the same diameter as the header pipe, I can't figure out where that's supposed to go. It will slide over the header pipe for about 1 quarter inch, (at the end where the Q pipe meets the header pipe) but it's solid all the way around so even if I was supposed to fit the silencer pipe over it and tighten it, that small piece wouldn't compress to tighten over the header pipe. I realize my description may be hard to visualize, just hope I can explain it to FMF today when I call them. I checked their web site, but there are no pics. I don't claim to be the most mechanically inclined dude. Just like to have fun.
Thanks for the tip. I figured out why I couldn't readily see how to mount it. It's the wrong one. Turns out the 03 mounts different than the 04. Have to send it back to RM and they'll send the right one.
Warrior, were you referring to my model quad and bending the sub frame, or quads in general? I've asked the fellas I ride with down here and the general consensus seems to be it's nothing to worry about. One fella on an EX says he's actually used his as a wheelie bar, hard, a couple times and hasn't had a problem. Thanks for the info.
