Thanks Reeb. Last season I got out on it... I had the stock seat and sitting so low, with a prosthetic leg was a real bitch when it came time to hop up and toss my weight around fast. I'm hoping this will help some but your concerns are dually noted.
Can't expect to have it all with a fixed budget and a decade old sled. But I'm gonna give it hell!
Really digging my little tilt bed golf trailer too.
Loading and unloading is a breeze compared to hoisting it up on the flatbed.
There's a new 800 project happening folks!
I convinced my dad and one of his mechanics that we needed to resurrect an old Kitty!
Started life as an '02 MC800. We totally let Shaughn do his thing on this sled. First up was a D&R which went well, and completely Shaughn's design. No template. Next I dropped some info about running a Polaris tank and Seat.....and low and behold....the kid has it mounted!
I can't wait to try it out for myself. Apparently it does really well and a few guys in the shop actually prefer the chassis over my Rev. Hopefully we will see a few 975's get built this summer and one will go into this thing. I'm opposed to the 1010 versus 975. Something about those 1010's that never did impress me.
Couple more updates.
A different airfilter that flows more, some more clutching, and ACT shocks with Ti springs from a KingCat. Soon to have the rest of the front end as well since the newer AWS is lighter and of better design.
Don't pay attention to the blasphemy on the handlebars of the Bomb, my dad and his mechanics thought it was a funny joke....I didn't take well to their joke....
A few points of note, I love the way the running boards are mounted, notice the clearance of the tube boards on the Frog versus those on the Bomb.
I'm also pretty jealous of the narrow IQ tank and even narrower seat on the Frog. But I have a plan to narrow up the 1M tank. Not sure if it'll work, but worth a try on a spare tank I have first.
The handlebars are also slightly forward, by 2" by eyeballing pictures. I can't wait to ride this thing and compare the differences. I doubted that I could make the 1M more comfortable than I have it, so it'll be refreshing to see if the IQ conversion makes it so.
I hate even posting these pics with those ugly muffs on my sled, but here they are anyways...
