Now the bad part. Let me first say not a single ounce of this was Bryan at BC-OffRoad's fault...this is all ITP, or whoever the vendor the wheels and tires came from. Bryan is working hard to make thing right for me and I really appreciate him. All the stuff that came from him directly was perfect.

I found this today...it is one of the front wheels...

Weird. Turns out these bolts are PURELY decorational and are not threaded in, but rather are press fit. Of course, my big concern is how long they are going to last on a trail quad. As I said, Bryan is working on how we will fix.

On top of that, the two fronts came yesterday, and ONE rear came today. I pulled the tracking number off the one rear, and the other rear is not expected to arrive until MONDAY!!! Then, to top it all off, the fronts are mounted blackwall and the one rear is mounted white wall.

Moral of the story, Bryan's service is awesome, but the vendor that ships the tires is pretty unorganized.

Thats too bad about the tires and wheels. Maybe brown will come through and deliver early so you can try them out this weekend. I guess we'll see exactly how well ITP stands behind their wheels now. I love those skid plates. How much do they weigh? The Tamarack Low Profile front box is on my wish list.

You know Bryan has just set-up as a Tamarack dealer.(no thanks to Me :wink: )
Take it back and because of the tire deal you might even get a better deal.

I am not sure on the weight, but they are very very light.

Well, good things are happening. The other rear showed up today 8) And Bryan called and said the piece for the rim is on its way.

Here are pics of the rear tire comparison.

Yep, just want to make sure it's snug on the bottom. I've heard if you bore holes in the top of that airbox it helps with performance too

Larry, maybe you will know....I cannot figure out how to get to the insde 2 bolts for the warn relay. I spent an hour yesterday trying to figure out what parts I can take off to get to it, and it seems like I need to pull the gas tank :roll: Is there a trick I am missing? It is these 2 bolts here...

Keith if you pull the rear rack off you'll be able to lift that inner tub high enough to get the bolts in. Put the bolts in from the bottom so they don't extend down into anything vital

Looking good!


Now thread high jack
I will never use UPS again, I sent a turbo housing and wheel back to a vendor and UPS lost it on day 1 and it took 2 months to get there min $100 back. They shorted me half the shipping cost too.

Doesn't the water come flooding in too? :shock:

The intake sits below this so water will come in there first, also there is a reservoir area below where the filter sits. Any accumulation gets caught there and you would have to flood the airbox for there to be a problem
