Well I've been doing some work on the sled and I must say it's going along really well. I learned no one has seen a 600rr with compression higher then 125psi (Mine's 124psi). I also learned it's going to most likely cost me LESS then I originally thought.

A complete set of A-arms, spindles, tie rods (everything for both sides) is gonna be coming my way from a guy off HCS for $150 plus shipping. It's off his 07 Iqr so if I can get my spindles off everything else (not as easy as it would seem...) then I'll use mine since their better.

My shock is toast (forgot to take a picture of it, will tomorrow). The rod isn't all that bent (it could be straightened) but the one end has the eye knocked sideways on the threads and basically to buy the parts I need for the shock costs the same as a new shock (including the other problems with it). So the guy that I bought my other jeep from said he has one from an iqr in his garage and said he doesn't really want all that much for it. So I'll give him a call. He does shock work so I'll just get him to revalve it before he drops it off.

Took all the monster stickers and fox racing etc. stickers off. I started pulling off the white decal on the sides off, just cause I don't want them there that much.

Sorry about the quality, these were taken on my phone.

Couple bent pieces, don't know what that's there for but I bent it back.

The belly pan after I took the heat gun to it. It was worse on the sides but I didn't get pictures of that before I fixed it.

Took the seat off and made new clips to hold the bolts in since most holes in the plastic were ripped off.



Does anyone know where I can get the belt alignment specs?

Thanks for looking [thumb], I will post some more pictures tomorrow.

Wow, those pictures are extremly crappy, I'll take an actual camera tomorrow.

Looks to be coming along pretty well. I might have an opportunity to buy a 600 pump gas mod, yours makes me want one!

I'm surprised it makes you want one with it being in the shape it is in the pictures[beatup] but I'm so stoked for winter to come around now and I can't wait to get it set up properly. If you do decide to buy it, good luck!

Love projects like these! Looks like it will be a good running sled for the $$$$.
I understand if you wish not to release the cost of this sled but I am very curious what a wrecked IQRR goes for down there.
They still hold a good value up here in AK

SOunds like the rebuild is allready commin along great! found some deals on parts too i see. That sled will be rippin in no time!

That guy was originally asking $5900 + taxes for that crashed rr.

IQR's sell for a lot of money up here compared to the states plus we pay 13% tax on used sleds plus a riv fee of another $240. Raced 2010s are selling for $8000+, 09s 7+ etc etc

I have been really fortunate and found amazin deals, 2 years ago bought a trail converted 07 440 with 9 hrs on it for $4000 and just bought a brand new 2010 from the states for cheaper than used 08s sell for up here.
