Hello everyone. I was a member here like 15 years ago. Went by "Mikey" couldn't remember my log in info so I had to re-register. I just relocated to Tucson from Oregon a few months ago. Been quadless for a while and now in the process of purchasing an 08 450ER from an old friend. One more payment of $100 and it's mine. Then I still gotta get it shipped from Oregon to Arizona. Bike is bone stock and I plan on starting with full exhaust and then suspension.

Hello again Mikey, you are going to be very disappointed with the forum now days compared to 15 years ago, there are still a few members with good information but gone are the day of 15 members comparing dyno results and sharing the results. Congratulations on the new ride

true story there brother. I've met some good riding friends on fecesbook but now spend all my time in fecesbook jail. Also met a few friends on here back in 06 and 07 who have turned into life long friends.

Any idea when you’ll be getting the quad shipped? What Exhaust are you thinking of going with? Looking forward to seeing your progress.

All paid off and my best friend went and picked up the quad, title, bill of sale, sand tires, etc for me. my 08.jpg 450truck.jpg She goes to the shipping place in Portland a week from tomorrow :cool: Should be here in Arizona in 2 weeks or so. Haven't had a weekend off in 3 months. I will be taking that weekend off though :cool: I will be starting with full exhaust (because I love the sound) then suspension. Wages are really low here in Arizona so it will have to be on a budget.

Sweet! Quad looks nice and clean! It’ll be a long two weeks 😆 . I just saw a pretty nice 06+ HMF full exhaust on eBay, not sure if it sold yet, but might be a good way to get a nice exhaust for half price.

Update....tomorrow I will pay the shipping. Tuesday my buddy in Oregon will drop it off at the shipping place. Estimated arrival in Phoenix 22nd to 23rd. Going to be a long 16 more days for me, but I'm getting close. I first began paying on it early February. Now it's all paid off and ready to ship

Awesome! Sucks it’s a little longer than you were thinking, but it will be worth it. Congrats on getting it all paid for, that’s a good feeling.
