No majestic trails is in rew pa just outside Bradford it's 20$ a machine a day or 100 for the year. Really an awesome place highly recommend checking it out. There's a ton of trails all marked and different difficulty levels.


Also if ever get the chance go down to WV and check out the Hatfield and macoy trails that's pretty awesome too.

Looks like a good time, private land or trail system ?

Trail system, minimum maintenance roads, and such.  No private land.  It was a great time.

Added rear foot pegs for my girlfriend.   She was mentioning how she felt as if she was slipping, so I found these food pegs on Amazon. I installed them yesterday,  what a difference,  it's comfortable now.  

Forgot to rotate the phone horizontally, hence the crookedy pics.

Ordered a synthetic winch rope, smooth fairlead(is that the name?) Bumpstop, and hook kit.  Orange rope, orange hook, stainless fairlead, black bumpstop.  Looking forward to it, I like to make what is mine, look like mine.  I have always been that way.  Should be here Saturday. Not sure if anyone is all that interested in this thread, but I will post either way.

Thanks! And I was hoping someone would ask, lol.  I want to create a thread of my trip, but didn't want it to be like a "who cares" thread, haha.

All I care about is you cleaning up that insulation in the garage ceiling. I’m a bit disappointed.

Lol. Kidding.

Added the OEM speedometer/odometer/tripmeter to my quad the other night.  Last year I used my phone to check speed through a GPS app while on the paved roads in Maine.  Looking forward to this trip, for many reasons.  I also added 1.5” wheel spacers to the quad since I lifted it 2.5”.  I was always very against spacers, but wanted to add some stability to it, since Jenn sits up high on that rear seat.  I love installing add-ons, so it has been fun.  Maine is coming soon.  

A little story, that I might only find funny is about that gas tank breather hose, and how it is green.  I love orange lately, and think its cool with camo on the quad for obvious reasons....well my dad knows this, but his favorite color is green...well one afternoon he was at a powersports dealer for stuff for his sleds....he saw the breather hoses, and he bought a green one because I wanted an orange one for the quad.  He was probably 15 miles away before he realized he screwed up, and bought GREEN, and not ORANGE... lol  i put it on anyways because its from him, and hes my best friend....gives me a smile when I look at it, we laugh about it.

So there was no speedometer/odometer before your put one on? Or there was, but not working?

No speedometer from the factory, it had the hole in the dash with a Kawasaki badged plug to give it a finished look.  the wires were added at the factory though, so this was bolt in, and plug 3 plugs in, very simple.  The wires/plugs were sealed in a velcro bag from factory to keep them clean which was nice to see.

Looking good sir. How are you liking the lift ? Did it make quads suspension feel a little stiffer?  On the wife’s older 450 quad I installed 1 inch spacers all around and she loved the added stability . Never had any problems from them. The speedo pod looks good installed.

Thank you, I have been enjoying this machine, been a great starter quad for us. I am very happy with the lift, it is lifted similarly than what you describe,   Drop down spacer at screws down onto the top of the strut, ride quality unaffected as far as cushion/bumps go, but it felt a pinch top heavy at times, especially since Jenn is on that seat so high up.  Feels like an entirely different machine now though in a good way.

Just a quick question on the rear rack/seat.  Buddy of mine got a ticket somewhere out west, forgot where, for having his wife riding on the quad while using one of those. Seems there laws it needed to be a factory 2 up, no aftermarket seats.   

Assuming Maine is ok with the seat?  

 

Quad is looking great. Haven't done a thing to mine yet.

Wow , interesting. Didn’t know some atv’s were made like that. So you have no clue how many hours/miles are on one unless it was your own from day 1

Correct, I think this is pretty much an entry level quad anyways.  Also, even if this had one from day one, and you wanted to be a scumbag, you could unplug the 3 plugs, for years, so it looks as if it had very low miles...I bought from the neighbor next to where I grew up, he bought it new, so I know it had extremely low miles, just enough “use” to keep the carb from getting gummed up.  He would putz around his 1 acre with his grandkids on his lap, plow his blacktop driveway maybe 3x, and he used it a deer camp for the last season he was apart of it, for exactly one week to/from his stand.  I could not have found a better used machine, lucked out.

Morning Mowin, thank you.

i did research that last year prior to going to Maine, and I honestly cannot remember if Maine is technically accepting aftermarket seats as lawful, not.  I do know that NY is not ok with it....in my short experience, neither state has looked twice, I feel it is one of those deals where if you appear responsible in how you drive, you are ok.  

@mowin I just checked Maine.gov again, this is all I see...later on it mentions that snorkel kits are unlawful, but no mention that I noticed about aftermarket passenger seats.

At least you looked into it. I agree, ride responsible, and you're fine.  Ride like a idiot, and their gonna find every infraction. Lol

Love Maine. Looking forward to your pics.

I’ve seen tons of guys running the seats here,I believe your 100% correct.  don’t get into trouble your good, but get noticed and just another fine the police can tack on.
