What kind of work have you done to them?

Interested in tuning the clutch, but can only find parts for scooters made by SYM.

I cut off the right rear wheel axel, moved the left front A-arm assemblies out 30 inches, and put a floor pan under all of it. I'm trying to make it into a lightweight, 3-wheeled, highly fuel-efficient commuter vehicle. It will look more like a car but be classified as an enclosed 3-wheeled motorcycle. It's kind of crazy.

I have a DS 250...the 2006 model. It was given to us (what a great friend!) last year ridden once. Since then we have ripped it up and down the mountainside behind my house, and through adjoining BLM land. She has never given us a problem. My friend even rolled it down a hill and she still started right up.
The only issue I have with it is speed. When I first got it I was new to quads, and the speed was fine. Now it seems slow. Is that the quad, or the rider? lol

Comparing ours to all the others we have, I would have to say the speed issue is the quad itself.

Nice price though. :wink: :-)

It would be nice if Polaris put a 330 or similar motor in the Blazers frame.

The problem I have with the wife, is she likes the lighter front ends. Makes it easier for her to steer. So it rules out any ute type quad. She doesn't even like how the old Trail Boss steers.

She's picky, but I gotta give her what she wants, to keep getting the stuff I want. :wink:



You are in luck then. For 2008 Polaris now makes a Trailblazer 330.

They're about 1 1/2 too late. :sad:

If they would have dropped the struts and put a double a-arm on it, they might really have something.

Do any of you guys have any experience with a Bombardier - 500 Quest 1999?
