    Well, I have been working on my first quad frame ever. I am comparing this frame to my KFX450. So, heres some specs on the frame.

    +2 Out the front
    +8 Out the back
    2 inches shorter, frame height
    .058x1 Chromo TIG welded

    The motor is 499cc Kawi motor, it will be on Alky, with n2o, hoping around 120+ hp.
    For the first season it will be a slightly ported 499, on 115 octane and off the shelf pipe.
    It is going to be a hill shooter, no sand drag tracks out on the west coast, mostly just gonna be riden at Sand Mtn, NV.

    There will be a gusset for the rear sub frame, and a support for the steering stem, and radiator mounts. Thanks

    Its a KX500 motor, 2 stroke. I can easily pull 100hp at the crank on 115 octane and it still be ridable in a bike. Remember, the KX500 is a bike motor. Its just the 450 plastics. I want this to still be riden to drag hill, not drug over there behind my truck, maybe even ride it around the back side of the mountain, so, thats why I'm not making it too long. +10" over is plenty long in my opinion, the R1 quads my buddies have are only +8 out the rear in a Raptor frame, and a +10 on a R1 J-Arm Banshee.

    Heres a couple more pics, down bars, subframe support, and grab bar are on. I know theres a huge gap on the grab bar, but its not a high stress area, so I will just fill it. No biggie. Next I am gonna do all the final welding, add the parts to hold the seat down, mounts for front plastics. Then I will either do the front suspension or the tank after that. I'm getting excited about it, just hoping I can get this motor to make me just as happy! Other wise, its gonna get a two stroke tripple in it, or a street bike motor.
