Default Yamaha G2

Ok, so I picked up a 1990 G2 so I can ride with my son out in the neighborhood and in the foothills.







This is what she looked like when i first got her



I spent a few hours with a brillo pad and a water hose to get all the years of dirt and grime off of the plastic

I ripped those ugly lights off of it.. I will install some LEDs eventually but they will be flush mounted

And after reading pretty much EVERY thread about the G2 & G9 and all the mods available I started to get a game plan for mine.. of course within a very limited budget.

I started with the most important, a tune up and oil and filter change.



Also the wiring was driving me NUTS so i had to clean it up





Next was the suspension.
I knew i really wanted to lift it, but i have never fabbed up any suspension before so i played it safe and ordered a 4" lift off of ebay.
I also wanted some better shocks but all the ones on ebay were all out of my budget. So luckily I found the exact shocks I wanted at the swapmeet for the ultra low price of $40! SCORE!



With the help of my son I was able to mount the shocks and the hub spacers



And this is where we are right now



New tires have been ordered.

What i'd like to do next is figure out a way to transport my sons' little atv on the back of my golf cart.
My golf cart came with a big metal box that goes on the back.. but its HUGE and hideous... so there's no way i'm mounting it...

Any suggestions on how i can transport his atv? Sometimes when we're out in the hills he'll get tired of riding and i'll have to haul his atv back to the truck.. if i stand it up with the front wheels on the back of the seat rest, the rear wheels will fit in the back of the cart but it wont stay put...

Way cool man!! Looks like your son will be building his own cart soon!!

Try a couple ratchet straps to hold the atv on.

It was a blast!

It took a while for the engine to warm up it kept back firing and sputtering. I messed with the screw on the carburator but it jusy kept revving up and down. I pretty much have it turned all the way to the max for it to stabilize.
Once it warmed up it ran like a champ.

It was a blast taking it through all the dirt mounds and on all the hills. It would be nice if I could somehow lock the differential.

I also need to adjust the shock to a lower setting offroad it's a bit rough.

Got my new tires today.
The turning radius isn't like before but the ride is way better.









All that's left is the gas cap which I got wrong twice from cartspartsplus but they are sending out the right one hopefully and a door for the gas opening.

Lookin Good! For the ATV-hauling,make a tow-bar that will connect to the quad easily,with the front-end raised off the ground.Then it will just follow behind like a trailer.

problem is that it's battery powered so the rear wheels lock up when its not being driven....

Make a flat-bed that is angled upwards at the front,and put the whole thing on it.The rear only needs to be a few inches off the ground.
