Ignition cover gasket

Inner and outter clutch gaskets

Water pump oil seal, bearing, and water pump cover gasket

All of the orings for the carb

As you are doing off-season maintenance, don't forget to include

a 3$ tube of grease to service your suspension linkage, swingarm and steering head bearings.

Tires! But then you'll have to take out some other stuff.

What about a carb rebuild kit? New jets seals etc. as opposed to just the o rings

Grips and cables are never a bad idea

I would put it on a good helmet even if I had to add to it. But uh I barrel rolled my 660 on me 4 or 5 times a few years ago..... and still wear the same helmet.....sad, I know.

it ripped the ball joints thru he a arms., wrapped the front rim around the lug nuts.. wish I had the pics right after the crash.  but a good helmet is a good investment.

 

 

I was wearing a cheap Fulmer helmet, I truly believe I would be dead if I wont wearing a helmet or one good enough to absorb the impact ( it didn't absorb it all I still had a  huge knot on my forehead) but I walked away. What helmet do you have now?

I'm just teasing. Quads are slow, heavy, and too wide tho. Only good for trail work ;)

Priority list.

 

1. Fix anything that is broken

2. Maintenance (grease bearings, top end if it's about time, clutch plates if they are worn, etc)

3. Tires, even if yours are brand new because you will wear them out and nothing feels as good as a new pair of shoes.

4. New gear

5. Bling (or just save it for gas and oil instead of wasting it here)
