New Winter Toy!
 
Well since all is well and done with the truck, I needed a new toy to play around with.

Here she is. A 2002 ZR 600! 4000 miles on her and got her for 500$!

She was in a little nose dive before, only issue was the hood is jacked up maybe 1/2" and back a touch. Going to get her Friday down in Ottawa.

My brother in law looked her over and said for 500$, your an idiot if you don't buy it. His boss was the one selling it.
Muffler is getting sandblasted before I pick it up on friday, going to hit her with some hightemp paint when I get home. She'll look like new

No kidding ha
He has the receipt from the shop last winter, replaced the head gasket, clutch alignment/cleaning, etc. 1000$

He did nose dive her, and the only reason he is selling it is because the hood doesn't fit properly and looks awkward. Only a matter of taking it off, bending back the front brackets and wala.

Picking her up tomorrow:Wow1: Can't wait

Yeah the fires still kicking, we are currently getting the smoke from the gogama fire coming into town.

We were in a state of emergency a day or two back, the fire was roughly 3km from town, and with a quick shift of wind. 3km is nothing.

So the evac plan was all set, and they would tell us if it started to move any closer.

I say within the last 2 weeks we had 4/5 fires in our ares closing highways. This major one is around 2500 hecters, big enough to cause damage. we had water bombers from manitoba and quebec come out and help to keep her under control.

Its just human negligence starting all this, some people are just ****ing stupid... Sorry for the language, but there is a fire ban for a reason.

But got the sled today! Damn for 500$ I have no complaints, got some touching up to do. Clutch kit in the summer here and were set

Post pictures when shes at home!

I still can't get over that! 500.00 for the sled, damn did you get a deal!!!!

Sure hope those forest fires stay away from you! Was up in Slave Lake this morning and they are still rebuilding.

Well guys here she is!

Repainted my A-arms, fixed my bars/risers, debadged her (somewhat), Fixed rear bumper

Grills are currently drying with my side rails also.

Next job is to wire brush the damn pipe and paint her kitty cat green.

To be honest I am kind of a ski-doo guy, but who could resist 500$ for this kitty cat ha I tore up the grass so bad last night down at my brother in laws. Damn she goes!:LOL:

Third picture is my other toy:smileup:

Did you straighten the hood already? Looks correct in the pic.

The partial debadge looks great! Good choice. :smileup:

The hood is about 1/2" raised above the rest of the sled, but honestly. It looks like it comes stock to me like that?

He said it looks awkward, but I didn't see anything wrong. The hood was hitting on my handlebar console (key/choke is). Had to move that back, drill some new holes. Mounted her and the hood sits flush up top now.
Good enough for me, I don't plan on babying her, so why spend countless hours playing with something that is acceptable ha

But thanks guys, I got my muffler,can,header ripped out. Going to give her a good wire brushing,prime, and some green high temp paint next.
