The price was right for sure!
The seat really sets it off!
I can't wait to see what it looks like in a year of two.

Heres some more pics, tires were a biitch and only got 2 on the rim but they still need to be seated. i also made some air scoops that i riveted on the stock shroud and a frame guard to redirect heat away from my leg from the pipe and just cause it looks sharp, im am loving the way it looks. dang tires gonna put me back some cash to, cause im prob gonna take them some where as i can't get them to seat any tips???

lube up the bead and hit them with alot of air..........or spray starting fluid in the tire and hit it with a lighter (not recommened....but it works, well).

I had a small nick on the bead of one of the tires on our newest quad and that sucker wouldn't seat for nothing. Didn't make much sense but I ended up taking it to a shop that's bread and butter is mounting tires on bikes and quads and they couldn't get it. I ended up having to put a tube in it.

You can also use a small ratchet strap to go around the circumference of the tire. Doing this will get cause enough of a seal that the incoming air will seat it the rest of the way.

still not the issue lol the way they had been shipped the main face is in like a v shape,so the tire doesn't even want to seat lol my dvx changes so often i look at the pics from the start of this tread and how it looks now it's quite crazy how little work it is in the details to really make a quad look nice
