Well first i just wanted to say thanks to Krewzlo and Dennis for meeting me up at SILVER LAKES SAND DUNES. So the day started out great, i was kicking ass down on the drag area. There were no fourstrokes that could beat me or even come close for that matter. The kill list goes. -yfz-450,trx-450 with high comp 14-1 stage II cams, ltr-450r, ds-650,QuadZilla .20over, raptor 740r, the list goes on. My 800 wouldnt just beat them it would destroy them to an embarssing matter. Thought i had the fastest quad there untill two drag banshee's with extened swing arms showed up running on alcohol...yep they threw me a nice beating.
This is were my great luck comes into hand, we get back to out trucks to load up for the day and before i loaded mine up, i had to clean the carbs because the slides were sticking open and my quad kept wanting to die out. So i took the carbs off and cleaned them with 110 racing gas because i had no carb cleaner available,put the carbs back on, and either the carbs werent seated correctly on the intake boot or the glue for my ms mod was coming off. Cause when i went to start my quad it back fired and a flame must of came out the ms mod or where the carbs meet the intake boots and lit the excess gas from cleaning my carbs. Now we have a problem.... So Krewzlo being a nice guy informs me of the fire on top of the motor and imediatlly throws his fruitpunch gateraid on the fire. Which then i jumped off the quad and started to throw sand on top of my motor to get the fire that was just getting bigger out. When the flames were finally out, i noticed that during the sand throwing the carbs were majorly knocked off the intake boots and sand had gone into my intake boots. took the intake boots off and looked down into the heads and noticed that of course there was sand sitting on top of the valves. That pretty much wrapped the weekend up.
Took to the heads off to do a inspection and the rear cylinder had a lttle sand sitting on the top of the piston cleaned the hell out of that cylinder and now i have to order some head gaskets up so i can put it back to gether. LUcky the motor wasnot running during this fire and no damage was done, except for some toasted wires.
Krewzlo has some pics of my motor after the fire with all the sand ontop of it.
