Watch Out for Rocks!

Recommended Posts

This is the results of my little brother hitting a rock on the side of the trail while doing 45mph+ on my middle brother's 2004 YFZ450.

After he hit a 6" rock that took off the whole front corner, it flipped and smashed the steering column against a big 4' rock. Thankfully he was thrown clear and was only badly bruised. I'd hate to be paying the repair bill though :thumbsup:

The world is a bit safer now thanks to rocks.

(Glad he wasn't hurt, though.) :thumbsup:

:devil::awww:. I guess it's time to upgrade suspension parts. Glad to hear he is ok.

Excellent. It's a win-win situation. The quad is unridable, your brother wasn't hurt. This should happen more often. :thumbsup:

All the quad bashing cracks me up :devil:...but if a quad has a 4T single in it, Isn't it still a THUMPER? :thumbsup: Therefore, if logic prevails, a 4 stroke single powered quad has a place here at ThumperTalk! Maybe they should have their own forum!! :awww:

at least the stuff failed where it was suppose to fail...if it had aftermarket arms on it...it would ripped the frame in half and the repair bills would be larger...

New rims? Why not get the whole wheel? :thumbsup::devil:
