Project 2002 Raptor 660

Different front bumper. Picture taken and School Creek ORV Park.

First dune trip with this machine. The Dune Slider rear tires were terrible!!

The group I ride with. Yamaha on both ends and Honda's in the middle.

Didn't like the other bumper so fitted this YFZ 450 GYTR one on there. Much better!!

Also added YFZ 450 front shocks.

Not long after getting the shocks, I ended up with some Laeger +2 arms.

Then ended up with a parts machine that had the FMF head pipe and the Tusk nerfs.

First dune trip with the different shocks and arms. Quite an improvement for a budget upgrade.

Freshly powder coated hubs, stock swing arm with billet carrier, and wave brake rotor  added Feb 2014.

New ProDesign chain slider.

New Alba Pro Elite nerf bars added Fe 2014

Other side. So far these nerfs are a nice upgrade and feel pretty solid.

Decided to build an anti-vibe steering stem. Took a stock bent stem and cut out the bend.

All tack welded together.

Anti-vibe cushions test fit.

Test fit in a frame to cut to length.

Finish welded together and ready to machine a bar clamp.

Billet 6061 block being drilled for bar clamp bolts.

Fit to lower clamps and ready to machine.

Machining the bottom out for indicator light boots and key switch.

Assembled on the stem to test fitment.

Back from powder coat and installed on the quad.


Thanks to Harry Hearvey. Without him this project would not have been possible for me. Thanks to Mike Simons at MTS Custom Coating Inc. for the great powder coat work. Thanks to Steve Nutsch at Brooks Yamaha for all the parts needed to finish this project. Thanks to anyone else who contributed to this. If I forgot to mention you, I didn't do it on purpose.
