Here is my 2006 TRX450R quad. I have had it for about 4 years it was standard when I got it with the exception of the HRC engine kit.
On my first outing it ate the crank and I ended up having to rebuild the engine.
I got some cheap wide arms for it from ebay to be be used with the standard shocks but they bent after the shocks bottomed out over some jumps.
I decided to go all out and buy a long travel front end and fox rear shock that cost me about the same as the quad itself had 2 years previous!
I tried to justify it to myself that it was money well spent if it saved me from an injury/time off work.
Considering the all the good stuff thats on there and how well she goes she isn't much to look at.
