SomethingFishy, I see you did a duel register on your new quad. Does a quad with tracks need to registered as ORV on lakes and road ditchs in winter???

Yes it needs to be registered as an ORV with the tracks to be legal any time of year.

I personally have not had an issue on the lakes, but after hearing warnings that others were given I asked the CO working the Atv Fair and he stated it needed the ORV sticker. I went to the DMV, they gave a quick call over to the DNR office to confirm and $38.50 later I had a 3 year sticker. I did this all at the St. Cloud branch.

I will also need to confirm but I believe it is legal to drive on the shoulder of the road, rather than in the ditch. Not quite sure what it will all allow, the ice fishing was the only reason I cared.

Dual registering is a scam! This state is a joke, if it's registered it should be good for everything. Just another way of squeezing money from us. I will not be dual registering my ranger for when I have my tracks on.

Next thing you know you'll have to have an additional license on your vehicle to drive on the ice, shoot I probably just gave them another idea, when will the nonsense stop?

When you willingly reconfigure your machine, you put it into a different category.

I do agree that any ATV with tracks added should still be considered an ATV.

Here's a few updated pics with the new Custom Brushguards and fuel-pack on the front . The only thing I have left to do is install some hand/thumb warmers.

Nice looking machine as always Josh.

I'd be a little concerned about those brake lines being exposed as much as they are.

I've thought that myself but they are pretty tight in place. I have been considering adding some front/rear aluminum a-arm guards. But the Richochets are the best and they have a price that proves it.

Josh,

Congrats on the new ride. Nice looking rims. smile Have you had the tracks on it yet? With the fuel pack on front and no rack extentions, where will the auger be mounted? Brushguards look sweet. How are the Piaa's mounted?

After running 300+ miles with the tracks on my machine this past winter, the XP with EPS would be the way to go.

Haven't had the tracks on it yet, although I did test drive one with them.

The front cargo box fuel box comes off and a regular rack/rack extender snaps in with the lock'n'ride and I will have an auger mount on that. I can also put the auger under the Otter cover, it rides securely they way I modded the Otter.

Another benefit of the cargo box/gas cans on the front is it helps keep the front end on the ground grin

The Piaa's are mounted to tabs off of the custom brushguard, they were made specefic for the piaa's.

I hear ya on the gas cans smile Did the piaa's come factory installed or did you add them? The EPS with tracks should be huge for meneuvering when moving snow.

    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that energy efficient casement windows are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
    • Mulches are really good. I have tried it in my garden once I had an issue with the weeds. It also retains the moisture in the soil.
    • Although its quite an old post, its still alive only because it is a very important talk. Most of them are behind reducing the weight. Reducing weight is not an easy task. Proper diet and exercise is very essential. Avoid red meat and oily food.  
    • I have seen just once in my life.
    • Great information. I was also looking for some tips to burn fat. I don't take too much food but I am a little bit fat. What could be the reason? Help me.
    • Way to go Andy!
    • Yep.  So far, I love it.  The only glitch so far is that the high speed doesn't work when I am traveling. The screen is clear, The side-imaging is also clear. It is VERY friendly to use!   I am very happy with it for a few hundred dollars less than Lowrance & Hummingbird.   Ref
