Hey your buggys got the funny little front shocks like the sunL (I believe) 800cc I just bought recently...interesting. where as my roketa is a GK 25A and its front shock mounts are set up for shocks that are the same size as the back. Im thinking I might change the sunL to be setup like the roketa so it can get more travel. I was having trouble with the top A-arm of the front suspension hitting the frame when riding hard thru rough terrain. If you look at my roketa you can see how the tube directly above the top a-arm goes up diagonally instead of straight out to the nose. I believe they changed the design to stop that from happening and to allow more travel for bigger front shocks.

Anyway it looks awesome... how much did the fronts set you back?
and what tires are you running? they look like they would be perfect for my terrain....

Thanks for the compliments guys.....I ride mostly the dunes now ...Chucko ...yeah the coolant hoses are a concern when it gets tight but so far so good...with the rad up high I get excellent cooling especially when runnin the turbo hard. The skulls are stickers scored from ebay..I have seen them at autozone and wally world too(lot smaller tho)...

Puna good eye on the shocks ..I never knew they were different sizes from front to back...found that out when I went riding with Jojano at the dunes in pismo (his bugggy is fast)..the upper a arms do hit when it cycles through the susp. travel I'm looking to relocate the shock mount and possibly weldup some new a-arms...The shocks were bout $550.00 and the tires I got on sale at rockymountain atv.com they were on clearance forgot what brand they are ...when I get home i'll look and post up what they are....

Manco...yeah the paint is rattle can from wally world...was going to have a shop powder coat but didn't want to go throught the hassle of stripping it down and all especially when it was the prime riding time here....Also a whole heck of alot cheaper to touch up minor scrapes and dings....Thanks again fellas for the kind compliments....Alex

Studio50,
Are you in Calif. You said something about Pismo ( one of my dream locations ) I use to party there back in the day, three wheelers everywhere no mini buggies no 4wheelers. Aaaahhhh back in the days when beer ran through me like iced tea does now. I learned real quick you don't haul booty crack away from the beach, for those who don't know the wind blows from the beach causing the dunes too drop off suddenly. If you know they are there it could be fun if you LOVE air.

Bill

Alex .. Looking awesome, man... that radiator must keep her nice and cool.... those hoses would definitely be a issue in many places I ride, but no problem on the dunes, I'm sure... Wish I lived closer... would love to race around with ya...


I just bought a heater core to install in line with my radiator to hopefully handle the added temps from the turbo... looking forward to testing her out.....

Billdough...yep from cali...and yes that wind does blow pretty good at pismo...lots of drop offs if youre not careful too
Mark...rad does real well ..i've got a glo shift gauge for water temps ..i think it might be reading wrong i never break 160 even running hard i think its broke ......Hows the turbo coming along? It'd really be cool if one day we could get a ride together....
Thanks Bige for the compliment...Alex

did you change alternators? I now notice, because I installed a volt gauge that my alternator is being taxed even with the Rad fan.. totally can tell when my lights are turned on...

Mark...I did notice a drop in rpm's when I turn on all my lights...I was told by scott at unleashed to turn up the idle a tad to compensate for the drop in voltage...I will in the future buy a new 55 amp alternator ..
