Default Another Project

Since I don't have the time or moneyto get my IQr tuned and running properly I figured I should go out and get another project to work on.

2003 RMK 600
Needs a good cleaning, a piston, a cylinder and maybe a crank.




One of these things is not like the others.....so it might need a red hood too lol

Ha, all I need now is a red headlight cover and it'll look almost like Slamdry's sled after I sold my other slydogs to him.

$1100. The crank seems ok, so I'm going to order up a set of pistons, slap my 600HO cylinders on it and let er rip. Also found out it has PERC today, bonus!

A boat (+1 and my parent's house), jetski, truck, dirtbike (also at my parent's house) and 3 sleds in the garage aren't nearly enough.

I've got a set of new pistons, and a set of used pistons for that. I might keep the new ones for now, but I'd probably like to get rid of the used ones real cheap. I had my machine shop check them out, and he said they weren't up to new spec., but they were perfectly useable. I'm sure they've got less miles than the ones in my sled now. One is unknown, but the other is closing in on between 7 and 8 thousand miles.

Are you selling that sled to Harry?

Wasn't planning on it. But I probably will put it up for sale for $3000 just to see if I can get any bites.

LMFAO!!


So you can't keep your other sled running, you decided you should have 2 project sleds to change jets on?

So does this mean the IQR is getting sold? Do you want $7000 for that?

The IQr is either getting a 660 or the 440 is going back in and it's on the chopping block. I'm leaning towards the latter.

If you've been looking at Craigslist down here you should already know people are asking ridiculous prices for their sleds. I can't even count all of the 2010-2012 USED Pro's that people are trying to sell for more than you can buy a brand new one for.

I think that is the case prettymuch everywhere. People around here are asking ridiculous prices for sleds but considering what I sold my xc for I don't think many people are getting close to what they are asking.

So I have the engine back installed and everything back together. The sled runs! and PERC works!



But I can't shut it off with the kill switch or key...



Anyone have some good experience with "spare wires" on an edge?

I'll give you $1500 for it. Fast cash, I'll even let you keep or sell that awful seat to Slammer.

Found out how the previous owner burnt it down. Got about 10 miles on it and i noticed smoke, or rather steam. One of the coolant lines has a hole in it and started spraying coolant all over the engine bay. Still have to pop the head off and inspect but I'm pretty sure I caught it in time to prevent any damage.

Kriegsman and I were able to get out on the trails at least for a little while yesterday, hoping to pound some more diamonds tonight before all the snow melts this weekend.

This little 600 seems to be pulling pretty well
