Hey guys never posted pics of my old sportsman before...but i figured why not? Shes a very slow work in progress. Being my very first 4 wheeled atv (i came over from the world of 6x6 amphibs) i kinda went in blind and ended up way over paying for what has turned into a project. But ive learned alot and had alot of fun on this quad.

Its an 2001 Sportsman 500 H.O.
So far ive replaced both front clutches/plates/coils, rewired the coils under the "hood", 4 new springs (im replacing the fronts again, i put 800 springs under the front and i think thats why my camber is wacky), 4 new CVs, reverse chain, belt, and just bought/installed these new 27in zillas with ITP delta forces yesterday. Looks way better then the bald factory junk and rims.

Even though its a project its been ridden quite a bit in the 2 years ive owned it. Mileage is around 2500 but the speedo was replaced in 05 so im not sure how many miles it really has. The engine has performed flawlessly and while its no 850 it does the job just fine and never missed a lick on our last 80 mile ride.

Im planning a Vipr winch, LED lights, windsheild, and a 2 inch lift (have it just not installed yet).

I miss my 6x6 at certain times but i would never go back.
