well alot of the guys that are my dads age are starting to race 4 wheelers so my dad told me he would buy everything to go ahead and finish my build. i ordered all the gaskets i needed to go ahead and build my engine back up. and i am going to attempt to port my heads by myself. i hope it works.. has anyone ever done their own heads and done it good?? i am only going to smooth out the nicks and rough spots.. nothing major. but anyways. im taking my frame and everything i need powdercoated and talking it to the place and they told me they will powdercoat everything on my 4 wheeler for 125 dollars.. and i thought it was pretty cheap so i asked around and everyone i knew that had powdercoating on their cars.. etc... said that they where the best in south GA... and im going to get that billit bolt kit from ebay. may get a nitrous kit.. and a new cdi because the one i got from mickey makes my 4 wheeler lock up when i try to start it when it gets hot.

the guys that want to race me are talking alot of smack. and one guy said he will outrun me with a stock raptor 700 and its the fastest thing they got runing. he said he would put 1 grand on the race. lol

but my dad used to run them back when he was in highschool with his car and he never got outran. so now im going to bring the gleaton name to the atv racing. im going to outrun them all like my dad did when he was just graduating from highschool.

ill let yall know how the build goes and have pics very soon.. soon as i can get everything ready so pray everyting goes well for me. hows everyone doing lately..havent been on in a very long time.

Glad to see ya posting again Paul. Did your screen name get changed when the forum was upgraded?
As for mods, there is a new water pump impeller out there to keep these hogs running cooler. There are also bigger intakes available, contact Big Kev or UPP. Vforcejohn had some but sold out and never got his last shippment from the manufacturer. How about having your secondary clutch lightened, and going with a BF750 flywheel?

Yea it used to be vforce king but now it is paulg...... Could you tell me where I can get the water pump propeller thing? And I was also looking at those gas tanks and bigger intakes that big kev has.. And his porting looks awesome. I was wondering how much $ all of that would be...

The color scheme I'm going with is a lighter burnt orange with lots of metal flake and the handlebars footpegs etc are more than likely going to be a black with metal flake. And some but not much chrome color.

The reason I'm going with orange and black is because I had the red lava edition plastics but the sun faded them to one of the coolest orange color u could ever see. So now its black and orange. Black viens with orange base color

I'm taking it to the pc place soon as I can. Any other suggestions guys?? Any and ever input will be much appresiated. Being out of this for a year really got me off track on it all

If your trying to get the most out of your engine, ditch the HMF's and get a Muzzy Super Pro or a set of LTE's
