The Teixeira Tech and Elka suspension combo offers extra
width and a ton of travel to get through the deepest whoops.
A Fastway steering damper helps soften any high-speed,
To get the most ground clearance, GNCC and desert guys are
running round sprocket guards and disc savers like the one
sandwiching the chain and sprocket on the left side. This one
is from CRF.
quad is adorned with Elka Stage 5
shocks to smooth out the ride in the
unforgiving desert terrain, and the
colors of the shocks pulled the build
together quite nicely.
Having the perks of working for
Fasst Company, Colt was able to
build a fully polished set of 14-degree
QuadRacer-bend Flexx handlebars
with the help of Kris Edwards and
Casey Sheets of Fasst Company.
Unfortunately, the public cannot get
the Flexx handlebars polished; they
are only offered in anodized black.
You do, however, have your choice of
bar pad colors though. No matter the
color, they work great! It’s like adding suspension to your upper body,
taking all of the harshness out and
giving you a better day on the quad.
A’ME half-waffle grips are a great
choice. They’re very tacky, making it
easy to hold onto the quad.
UNDER THE HOOD
Moto-Xperts handled the cylinder
head work, and a Vertex piston, Hot
Cam Stage 2, Hot Rods crank, 43mm
Keihin FCR carburetor, and a DT1
air filter make this a killer powerplant
for desert racing, not a Friday-night
street drag. Hinson stepped up in a
big way with a full-steel clutch basket,
fibers, springs, inner hub, outer hub
and clutch cover. This setup provides
great clutch feel and is long lasting.
A full Works Connection lever/perch
setup, along with their trick engine
dress-up plug kit, was installed for
functionality and great looks. Works
Connection also has a great rear
parking-brake block-off plate in several colors that went on the build.
Streamline Industries red + 2 brake
lines, standard-length red rear brake
line, Wave rotors and pads were used
to stop this beast at high speeds.
In desert racing, you need a great
stabilizer like that of the Fastway
Stage 3 system that works great.
High-/low-speed adjustments and
return to center make this system
Colt’s choice for dampening the hard
hits. Fastway Flak handguards were
used to keep his hands protected.
Out back, a RAD Manufacturing
bearing carrier and trick axle lock
nut are used on this machine.
Furthermore, the bearing carrier has
a grease Zerk that makes it easy to
