Been getting alot of driving time. Kid loves it. Also I was able to rig up some TIG filler wire as an easy way to adjust choke from the drivers seat, and I replaced the rear shocks for the 3rd and final time. These are 13-3/4" shocks from gopower sports. The previous 12" had a good rebound and sprint rate but 12" was too short and the gas tank was smacking the rear frame on big bumps. Now we can fly around the property with no worries.

Put a stage 1 kit on from gopowersports. Chopped up the exhaust pipe and then found a tractor muffler at the local tractor supply to help keep the volume reasonable. Took it for a quick spin the 15 minutes it was dry-ish Friday. Seems like it got a nice pickup in throttle response and overall power and the sound might be acceptable for the mrs! sounds good IMO. I will get a video soon.

Nice!! Don't forget to brace that exhaust. It will snap off if you don't
