    New seat

    hey Jared, nice looking machine, be aware of the center of gravity when riding with a passenger. it'd makes it more top heavy... enjoy derf.. I ride 2 up all the time....
  10. Dad don't make a mountain out of a mole hill..when the piston is at TDC, on the compression stroke, both valves should be set at this time. the intake valve and the exhaust valve. I have a 99-450 Forman and they are set at .006 each. some units may not be set the same, check you manual for the settings. good luck..derf🙂
  11. the .002 feeler gauge may not be right, check the shop manual... for spec.
  12. Hey daddy, sounds like you not on compression stroke, check that first...derf

    Burning fuse

    Hi Rene, a word to the wise, find what is the problem before you replace the fuse...30 amps is more than most of the wires will handle, most of the wiring harness will not handle 30 amps. check your wiring diagrams for the 30 amp circuit. ...derf. do not keep replacing the fuse. investigate the problem first.. good luck
  14. SHADE, I say you de man...great job..derf😉
