Good looking buggy.....................Stock 2010 700 XTX with 30" ITP's
Have clutch kit and head liner for tunes system on order. Not sure what mods I want to do next. Something on the exhaust to quiet it down for hunting etc. but dont want to loose power. Hope to have some pics of muddying it up after I get home the 15th.
Well so much for that... I guess cant link pics from photo bucket for another hand full of posts.... I guess these little pics will have to do for now.
Yea for sure something was getting wet.check out the rip saw pads from evolution power sports thats where i got mine at 34 dollars a side I haven't put them on yet.No problem with power when it was running right, after that first deep hole something got wet and had a hard time keeping it running a few times after that, air box was dry. It would run rough and backfire through the exhaust. It did it a few times throughout the weekend, time for maintenance. Changed the brake pads last night, the ones on it were only a year old and completely shot! Junk I bought on ebay.
My wife drove so long smoke was coming from them she called me to come get it. If it looks like you have enough meat on them you might just need to pull the lever off the caliper and move it a couple splines. Mike can help you with a cheap fix that will use all your brakes for an e brakeThe only thing I had to do to run the 30s was crank the front preload up all the way on the springs and to cut the screws off where they go from the tub through the fender well (they were sticking through about a 1/2"). Every once in awhile I will get a slight rub when the plow is on and I am pushing wet heavy snow and I turn the tires to just the right spot.
I need to put new pads on, the ebrake does not hold at all right now. I think the kid or the wife ran it with the brake on and scored the pads. They look like they have plenty of "meat" on them, but they wont hold it on level ground from a slight push by hand.
Good Idea at idle or just touching the throttle a little will make it rattle.The only thing I will do different is slip a piece of rubber hose or heavy duty shrink wrap over it so its not rattling around when I am trying to be stealthy on the way to the hunting grounds... steel on steel sounds carry a long ways and critters dont like them....and hopefully its not on the way to the happy hunting grounds, but thats been touch and go on more than one ride I have taken LOL
