So here are a few pics of the beast. Bike runs great, I got it home on its own power, but it need quite a bit of work.

Cardboard under the bike is there because the custom-built oil pan has a leak in it due to the fact that the bike ran with a loose chain and it grinder the under of the pan.

Pretty much every rubber piece will have to be replaced, from throttle bodies boots to fuel and oil hoses as well as fork seals.

I’ve got a stock exhaust on it, but will be getting a less restrictive one during the winter once I see something interesting for sale. I want less restriction without being overly loud, both because I prefer quieter exhausts for long runs and because police is very generous with ticketing when they think you’re too loud ($350 ticket if I remember correctly).

Bike will be repainted. Still hesitating between matte burnt orange on black or straight black on black. Not a fan of chrome as it requires too much detailing for my taste.

I’m also looking for a way to cover the sides where the transfer case normally goes. I’ve got the side panels, which aren’t installed at the moment and look for a way to cover the openings under them.

I’ll build something in order to cover the front sprocket too as a lot of crap gets ejected from there and goes everywhere on the bike.

I have two stock chain (strap) guards, which obviously don’t fit since the chain is on the right side, but I’ll try to find a way to build one as I’ll be safer riding with a covered chain.

Brake light is in the plate holder, which I hate both for safety and aesthetics reasons, so I’m looking at a way to put a led strip underneath the rear fender. Swingarm is longer than stock, so the stock tail light doesn’t fit between the fender and the wheel anymore.

Front brakes feel like a car which power brakes have gone bad.

Throttle cable needs to be replaced.

Clutch slips when going WOT in 3rd.

The list goes on. I paid a fair price for the bike considering the Stage 4 kit in the engine. I know the guy who paid for the work and the shop who built the bike, so I know that’s the real thing.

Paid 3000 CAD (~ 2300 USD) and believe I’ll put another 1000 - 1500 in parts once the project is finished, so that’s a pretty reasonable price for what I’ll have I believe.

I also have 3 boxes full of mostly stock parts which I will be selling at some point.

Sooo if you have any questions or ideas, I’m all ears. Idon’t know much about the bike yet, but by the end of the winter, I should know pretty much everything about it. The only thing which is off the list is opening the engine, with the exception of the clutch cover as I need to find the source of the slippage.

Wow what a monster! I think you got a good deal on a warrior that your willing to dig into and make your own.
Open that clutch up, who knows what's in there. And look up the 2-3 full plate clutch mod.
If you got the parts maybe put the middle drive back in and go back to belt drive. A lot of work sure, but might make it more enjoyable to ride.
Also I love that the passenger pillow is still there for those 2up drags

I would be surprised if the clutch is still a stock one, but I’ll make sure to check for the clutch mod. Do you have any link to documentation as to what the mod is ?

As for the transfer case, I have most (all?) internal parts, but don’t have the housing. Also, the bike is very fun to ride as is, so I don’t see any reason to add that mass back on the bike (about 70 pounds by my friend’s estimate). It may run better with the TC, but I can’t compare as that the only Warrior I’ve been on.

Thanks !
