Fitted my new Moose Dual Gasser Throttle on the bar today. Looks good...works great!. Can't use my new ODI grips so ordered a set of Pro Grip 793s. Also ordered a set of Douglas Quadrasport rims from Dicks ATV for that extra set of tires I have. Here's some pics. I did order the gray and black grips though.
I'm moving the 4wd drive switch to the left side replacing the override button with an HD stainless push on/off. I wanted a double pole switch so I could have the override and the 4wd and the only one that fit the size and type is made in England. Its on its way. And to make it water proof, the special cap has to come from Japan (wouldn't you know). That also is on its way. Pics? OK, here ya go.
Finally got around and mounted the Ricochet Full Belly Skid Plates with the Ricochet under footwell Skid Plates.
The 19 Brute Ricochets were a little off on the rear belly section to match up with Ricochet's mount's but I made it work. If you ever decide to get the Under footwell Skid Plates with the Full Belly Skids, then do the Footwells 1st, at least get the Plastic footwells off, way easier to install the belly plates with the footwells off.
Added an ATV TEX 3-section soft rear Bag, a buddy of mine has been using the exact unit for the last 4 yrs with no issues.
Put my smaller fuel packs on the front rack, for extra support I used the Stainless steel flat grate from Home Depot. Used Aluminum flat grate on the rear rack for extra support for the rear soft bags with the aluminum stainless steel cable ties.
Did a full complete oil change's from front to rear including servicing air filter.
All setup for Summer riding in Southern CO and Northern New Mexico, off and on starting June 1st through the end of September.
Readjusted the ELKA Stage 3's Shocks for the rougher riding Colorado trails/Forest Service graded roads, to softer ride.
Mounted a portable FlyRod/Reel holder on the right side of the Brute, this is 8 feet long made out of a modified Rod/Reel holder and 1-1/4" PVC piping cut into mostly 3 ft sections (disassembled it breaks down to mount on the front of the Brute, headlight to headlight)
Now I can carry my FlyRod without breaking it down or trying to tie it down along the side of the Brute between the Fishing spots that I stop at (9-mile section). It now slides into the 8 foot Rod/reel pvc holder fully protected. This FlyRod side mount is on the right side of the Brute but not past the overfenders. ( I used the RAM/ball mounts and extenders to the pvc piping with hose clamps)
Rear section does go pass the rear of my Brute but hopefully I have it highlighted enough from it being ran into.
