i think your on the right path.....good talking with this am!!

Yeah after talking with Aaron and putting some more thought in it I believe I will run what I said this morning.....but those water ski floorboards are coming off for the races.. Laughing I am going to make me some like I seen in some pics a while back. That way my foot will not slide back to the rear wheel. Plus it lets the water flow more. Like I said i believe I will listen to more than one guy and take what IMO is the best advice for me....Aaron has been racing since before it was hardly e has their own opinion on whats best.... I just need to find what is best for my riding style and go with it... It was good talking to you as well Big Guy...

I'm sure your dad wouldn't want that Prairie to sit like that. Enjoy it like he would.

As far as that goes...My Dad loved to ride....Its the only thing I have left from him.... Iwant it to be just like he left it. The reason I moved it to my uncles was it mad me sad seeing it everytime I opened up the building Sad Its still in GREAT condition and runs good...it has a Dynatek CDI....thats the only mod on it. My uncle keeps it running and ride it enough around his place. Maybe one day I will build Monster out of it...but not just yet. I want to keep it forever and If I ever get the feeling Dad wants me to make a animal out of it...well he will be proud when It pulls up the starting line Wink

just my 2 cents you dont have the motor for the crushlocks.... they are extremely heavy which makes it hard to get them turning and stay turning at high rpm's.... i too am going to be trying out diff tire setups but untill i get my motor done im not even going to attempt the crushlocks that and im a firm believer in lighten up your atv not making it heavier unless you need to in a area like brutes need in the front end and polaris need to be on a diet..etc..etc...

Motor...there are tons of stock motors running them...they only weigh 20lbs a piece. which is only 8lbs more than SS wheels. Crushloks would not be a problem at all....shoot you have Honda 450's & 500's running them. I tried them Friday at Mudfest and they were fine with a stock secondary...

im not talking about a stock crushlock im talking about a crushlock filled with water which is mainly what all the riders do with them atleast the 8 or 9 ive talked to.. and HL told me there about 60 pounds of extra weight total over aftermarket wheels... anyways like i said up there just my 2 cents i wish you luck in everything your trying alot of the guys your talking to have made this sport what it is today so yes they do know what there talking about.

The ones I ran had water in the front and it was not problem...... it seemed to do fine....I believe I have got what I want to run figured out...just have to get some of the stuff in. You can't get alot of water in the Cruskloks anyway....you can get more in the ss wheels.

With the way you take care of your wheeler, cleaning, keeping it in showroom floor condition, etc...there couldn't be anyone better taking care of that wheeler...I'm sure your dad would be very proud to have you taking care of it and enjoying his ride out on the trails. You tha man when it comes to taking care of your wheeler. Thumb

If the Prairie ever come out it will be a strictly race bike with a full blown TRUE FCP race motor..... not the FCP rebuild . It will be Very FAST.... If I was going to do it I would do it right Wink Thats what he would have done.....but i'm telling you all it will probably never happen Smile

I am going to trail ride and race with mine. I am tired of setting at home and I don't have the money to go to every race.... So I am going to start trail riding as soon as I get the upper A-Arm bushing in. I have it now just have to press it out and put the new one in.

its a good decision and like i said before i dont see why you dont just do both anyway.. shoot im getting ready to purchase either the 840kit or 750 kit ( I got extra set of cylinders) and im still going to trail ride mine i dont usually have a passenger so i can still modify my floorboards without exposing too much of my legs i think. and im going to change my primary springs out when i trail ride i keep same weights in for trail as i do for bogging i do my weights diff than others.. You still plan on going to the first 3 bogs or has your plans changed boot let me know cause i was kinda counting on me and you going to some together i dont wana go 8+ hours away from home on weekends by myself if i dont have too.. that would be so boring and risky at the same time...

I am going to the March one for sure April right now is 50/50. May is Wilburns and thats for sure...that will be the most fun one to go too. and June is in as well. as long as my summer job is ok with it.

The one in March...We can leave Tennessee Friday afternoon and head to the Carolina's. I am taking off work that day. The one at Wilburns I will just drive down there Saturday morning.
