    Roller Chain Style: Single Strand Chain 35309624 - MSC

    Is the above link the type of chain you buy? I have an 06 with a 10/22 sprocket set, but i'd need to buy some 428 sprockets correct and i'd go 11/22 if i did for the #40 chain.
    Thanks, Troy
    p.s. Go Trump! Glad he won!

    Hello Jack . My name is Sal and I live in Connecticut. I'm currently in the middle of doing some work on my son's 1992 Lt80. This is my second time going through this quad. The first time was to just go through it clean it up and replace anything it needed. This time I wanted to give it a little more horsepower. I have the top end off carb and both clutches apart. I don't have any problems with cutting the rear clutch and taking out 2 rollers. I really don't have anyone around here to machine the head for me. So can I get a estimate for some of the different types of upgrades you can do if I sent you the top end?
    Thank you Sal
    My email if you would rather talk through that is [email protected]

    Hey lt80. So I replaced the top end on my lt80 this week and a rode it for about 10 minutes it had a lot of power and the compression was at 125pd. But I blew the top gaskets and replaced them thinking they where bad from the factory. But I only got about 5 minutes of riding in before I blew them too. Any ideas?

    hi there LT80, I have used your forums for quite a few repairs /troubleshooting. For that I thank you for your abundance of knowledge on these at times painful quads. I have a slightly confusing repair that I thought id run by you. I have a 96 LT80 that needed a new CDI, the only one I could source was one off a 03 model which as you know is slightly different. Obviously there are 2 extra wires on the later model that need to be put somewhere. I thought I had it worked out but still cant get spark. Can you assist here? Has anyone attempted to do this conversion? I am thankful for any assistance you can offer. Cheers.

    i pulled the tank to put a new petcock on and noticed the foam on the airbox is shot. I can't find it anywhere online. It's appears it is sold as part of the air box itself. It seems to be foam that seals the airbox to the bottom of the tank. any ideas? how can i replace this foam?

    Hi LT80,
    I see that you seem to know a lot about these little machines! I own a 1987 lt80 that is in pieces in the shed. I would like to rebuild it and im wondering what are the best options for me. I have noticed the CT racing package and also midwest. Also looking at getting new wheels and tyres or possible just tyres.
    Could you please lend some advice ?
    Thanks in advance

    hi sorry to bother you need advice please, remember me saying i overtightened the nuts of the fmf flange last week and snaped part of my cylinder, well the new 1 hasn't come yet so in the mean time i put some super steel (2part epoxy) into the crack and put it back together just out of curiosity,it worked pretty damn well i pulled and pulled on it and it didn't bugde so i decided to fit the cylinder today but wen i did up the bottom nut for the fmf again it went again.its the 1st pipe I've seen for lt80 and looks weird to me on the header pipe flange its got a sort of ring pre fabd to it round the open to the exhaust, is this a gasket that fmf made so i dont need the oem 1 cuz i noticed that it makes the space between cylinder and exhaust larger n more stress is on the nuts. i know should be a gasket but its killing me,I've got a broken cylinder again n don't want to happen to the new 1 wen it comes. can send pics ive took today please help me, wud be greatly appreciated thanks. dan
