for the past year and a half I've been hunting down parts missing from a quad I aquired in a trade, it's a trx250r 86 engine in an 88 frame. brand new ct racing rebuild...350pv. started this weekend first time. issues...the kickstart lever has about 1/5 rotation free play so if the lever fits into the cutaway in the fender I don't get enough of a kick to start the quad. after way too much kicking without result I turned the kicker back a few splines and quad starts fine but kicker doesn't fit into detent in fender...any tricks or fixes? second thing is the frame is in the way of most air filters. I found an angled unifilter that works but I would really love to have an airbox(lots of water crossings around here) but the stock airbox rubber will not fit over larger carb. I tried heating it in hot water to soften and maybe stretch it but that didn't work so I figured i'de ask folks who have gotten around these issues. I do have an airbox eliminater kit but the big rubber tube won't clear the frame to meet the carb. thanks for any insight or advice. waiting right now on a new petcock and rear master cylinder while I rest my badly bruised right foot. ps bdt and Carlos rock, cr500 ignition kit installed...no lights used.
