Hinged Hoods


Recommended Posts

Here's what I have so far, still need to do the rod for holding it up, plan to try a tube hooked at the molded dent, center rear of the hood, notch the metal support for the center of hood so the tube slides through when down, when the hood is up, the tube rests on the support bar. If this is clear, later photos will clear it up. Haven't decided what to do with all my bolt holes or how to tie the hood down yet.

Looks good. I see that you have your priorites right. That added storage should hold about 7 or 8 cases of beer.


I doubt I could keep beer up there, 1, probably not strong enough and I could lose my beer, 2, It would not keep it cold, 3, not nearly handy enough, I'd have to stop to get me a beer, 4, my wife won't let me buy beer, 5, it probably wouldn't work for sody water either! :P . I'll probably store blankets, hammock, coats, clothes, medical stuff and while I'm riding, I'll probably put my Spot up there so it has a good view of the sky. I plan on setting my spot to track mode when I go out. My next step for up there is to put a barrier up there to keep the dirt and dust from coming into the cab via all the holes around the brake cylinders and locker handles and build a lid for that box to keep things in there clean. In front of the shock mount bar, I plan to make a mount for my jack, presently in the white box behind the cab.

I think I'm almost done with my hood hinge setup, just need to figure out the hold down method I want to use.

I got the lid on the storage box, and mounted the hood rod.2246886460104110397zrZeJd_th.jpg The foam blocks hold the hood rod in place and keep the lid on the box closed, and also acts as a handle to open the lid on the box.

      I've had a battery failure and need one replacement.  The local distributor told me it might take up to four weeks to get one.  I'd like to order one in sooner than that if possible.  Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a 2020 800 sx with about 16 hours on it.  From day one I have heard a clunking noise from the front end going over bumps.  Has anyone else experienced this?  Also this past weekend while out riding I heard a noise that sounded like the dump bed bounced three or four different times, again has anyone experienced anything like that.  Thanks, gary

      Forgive me if this is in the wrong topic, but I’m in need of the front differential cases on a 1000 mxu. Ring gear bolts backed out and thrashed the cases.
      The manufacturer idols back order and can’t seem to get in touch with Parts Boss. Anyone have an other sources that may carry parts?

      I have a 2017 Vector 500 4x4 with electronic front locking diff.  Used it about 30 miles ago, and the front axle won’t unlock.  This makes steering very difficult and I’m sure it’s not good on front components either.  Checked the connector and the wire and switch.  Everything *looks* fine.  Before I go digging into diff was wondering if anyone else experienced this.  Indicator on dash shows an X indicating locked axle.  4x4 indicator for front axle just flashes.  Can’t tell if I’m actually in four wheel drive.  This thing is so underpowered it would t spin wheels anyway…
