Lurker Saying Thanks

I just wanted to thank the forum members for the great info I found on here.
I have been neglecting my Prowler for a few years, no tags in the draw and to many other hobbies.
I was fortunate enough this year to draw a Elk and Deer tag here in NV., so I pulled the prowler out of the moth balls, installed a new Xstatic battery and proceeded to inspect. I knew she needed new shoes, so I found a fair deal on some Rip Saws locally. They seem like a fine tire. While swapping out the rubber I found my shocks were in poor shape, weeping from the seals and the lower coil adjustment collars were fubar on 3 shocks. I did find some Fox 2.0's , they should be here today.
As I was changing fluids I found the rear pads close to limit, somebody's been driving with the park brake on, I blame the dog. With the info I found here I order a new rear rotor from AC and new pads and front rotors from Evolution.
I also picked up a pair of Rigid Duallys for some night light.

I am hoping the brake up grade will quite down the descends, it could get a little annoying in the past.

So my old Prowler will have:
Fresh Xstatic Battery
New Tires
Upgraded Brakes
Upgraded Suspension
Fresh Blood in all the holes.
Rigid Duallys LEDs
It should be good to go.
I hope to shake it down this weekend.

2007 Prowler 650, Dobek CDI, Pumper Carb., Viper 4500# winch, Summit Jeep Heater. It's got some racks, some camo, some tunes and 6 gun racks. It's my hunting rig.

Yes I put the carb on in 07. It has a manual choke, I see the ones for sale now have elec. choke. This buggy runs good, goobs of torque, I have never ran out of power just traction. We will see what happens with decent tires. Might do some clutch work if needed.
A couple of years ago I was hunting and it was a rainy mess, rare here in NV., but the Prowler did ok, when it hooked up,the engine would not drop below 3200 rpm, it just kept pulling like tractor. Kinda sounds like a tractor too..lol

Garage
The Rip Saws do pretty good in mud and snow, I plowed a lot of driveways this winter after getting 10". I do too much pavement driving and the front are wearing down and the rear look new but I can't complain I have around 3,000 miles on them.

Sounds like you have plenty of power.I would rather have the manual choke,a lot of times I don't even have to use the choke on my mikuni.

Running into a snag with the Fox 2.0's. Add said they would fit a 700 Prowler, upon inspection they are for XTZ or HDX. I should have researched more. Doesnt look like the seller will take them back. So now its fab. time.
