Nice Ghost, is that the Yamaha front winch push bar?
Here's what I've been working on, new remote fuse panel ( going to hold off on the extra battery & see how it does without it.) horn, fire extinguisher, Yamaha storage case & switch/GPS/radio panel.

Hi JB, looks serious,If you use large storage box,you will have to use Dragonfire rack or build your own.I did not know if i wanted to put tools,cloths,fuel,with optional battery together in one box.With second battery on rear deck there is still room on either side to stash some more gear or fuel. If you go with winch and use Warn solenoid i learned some tricks.Next 180 watt light bar,and heavy flywheel. JB your work looks great as always.Ghost

Thanks yours is coming along great too. I'm going to make my own tire carrier very similar to what I made on the SS. The guys I ride with around here go on long rides so felt I needed the box on the back & might add some reinforcement to the cage. Boy I love driving this car it's like having a sports car in the dirt :D :D :D :D

Moderators
Is it possible to get the UTV side broke up like the main forum within each manufacturer? (advertisement potential $$$ for site)

Thanks JB

Well this is it for a while,i bought the 4 year extended warranty (1500).The last i read a guy blew his engine and it was 1500.to put it back together.So i figured that wasn't a bad deal.Talking with dealer on heavy flywheel,re flashing the ECM.I do not want to raise the red line,would like different exhaust,pull the California emissions.We will see what they say.Some dealers will work with you some won't.I here and i am waiting for Yosimura exhaust, due out some time soon.With re flash and new exhaust,another 20hp.Ghost

Very nice Ghost, I can't keep up with you!!!
Just keep all the stock stuff & if you have any issues put them all back on & then take it in (was told this by my neighbor ) =D>

Thanks JB,i hear there is a re program for the Yamaha motor cycle that you can do what ever you want.Then if warranty issue comes up you can re set back to stock.Will let you know as i learn more about it and how much.I love this machine (all business)tricky to work on some time,because of all the stuff they crammed in this small wheel base.But you are right just like driving a sports car,and on the trail you can get in trouble real fast,but i love it.Ghost

Be careful of what upgrades you do. I have RPM1 warranty and I have heard they will do anything they can to deny warranty claims. I have been wanting to put high clearance control arms but have heard that will get a denial.

Yes this car is a blast & I have seen those units Graves uses a unit like that.
The best thing about them is you can also adjust fan temp settings, RPM cutout things like that but you can also screw things up if your not careful. I am leaning towards the ALBA setup or Weller both will open up the engine to its full potential.
Papa
Your right it is a risk luckily my neighbor is the sales manager & if I say with the proven aftermarket stuff hopefully won't have any issues.

Hi JB and PGH. What would you think of moving the YXZ racing guy as a sub title in our format.Ghost
