High Lifter mods

I love seeing what everyone else is running, and to see how others combat water and mud, and heat, and....

I had to replace my exhaust, it had rotted away, and I had several leaks, like 50. The head pipe seal was perfect, but from there back, holes and leaks. Put on a HMF Swamp series with a snorkel pipe. Added a EJK fuel modifier and have always run a Uni Filter.
Had one fan crap out, replaced it with an OEM unit, and constantly spray them both with a water and rust inhibitor. Cut slots all over the stock radiator cover to help get the heat out. Running the fuel modifier helped a lot with heat, and cooled down the actual exhaust pipe.
Put on a new belt, thought about installing the Dalton primary spring, but I really have no problems with the clutching with the stock sized tires. I can always spin the tires in the muck, broke one front axle, replaced it with a Cobra unit, visually bigger, seems stronger. Tires are getting chunks taken out of them, but still have tons of life left in them.

Should have taken more pictures when the bike was apart, and I was installing the new stuff. But, it's all back together now, and running well, need to get it dirty.

Please post up all the stuff you like to do to your mud machines, heck, any machines.

We have broken two axles and replaced them with east lake axles. Replaced belt and clutch cover under warranty. Also winch switch and winch under warranty. Took the rubber winch switch cover off cause it kept making the buttons stick. One fan crapped out. Had to seal the entire clutch housing cause oem wasnít sealed. Put a rogue off-road radiator cover to help with heat. Added a rigid light bar and wet sounds system which the wet sounds seems to be draining the battery for some reason. Also put an aftermarket battery.

Basically a stock bike, 2" High Lifter bracket lift, and that's it. Bunch of little stuff that doesn't effect tire clearance, but a basically stock mud bike on 32.5's. Rode it around the yard, still plenty of power to accelerate.

Looks good! I am waiting on the new header pipe and rjwc exhaust for ours and Iíll have it back together. Lol my brother stole some parts off of it for his scrambler he took the rear axle cause he busted his. So he owes an axle now.

Unfortunately yes, family is great. We should hook up and ride sometime, we're kind of close. That would be cool.

Where did you say you were from? And where do you ride?
