Hey everyone...I slid my outlaw into a burm at the end of December and broke/bent some parts. I'm starting to put together a list of things I need and reaching out to see if any of you have some spares for sale.

In a nutshell, i hit the right front wheel on a large rock in a burm..broke the right inner tie rod end, bent the steering idler arm and center link (Fuj..have any of these made?). 

As for me...I was pretty lucky (well, except for that other large rock I landed on)...my gear did a good job of keeping me from any serious damage. Head, neck and spine are great...ribs not so much...left arm took some sprains too. Will know more after today's doctor appointment.

[UPDATE] - OK...so I guess i did end up fracturing 5 ribs (one is displaced) and my scapula!...explains why this still hurts.

I hope to be healed up in a few weeks (Pismo in March!..doubt I will be riding much yet tho), and i will have a better idea of what other parts are needed...for now this is what I see.

Broken inner tie rod end (can buy this new)
bent idler arm; not sure if any steering stem/bearing issues at this point
center link looks bent

Not sure if the:
A-arms, tie rod, hub, knuckle, or rim have any damage. Im hoping to look at that next week if I am up to it...and can unbury my quad from all the christmas decorations my wife piled up around it to keep me off of it while I heal....lol


Thanks for reading this and looking in your parts bins. Not sure how fast I will be buying parts yet but I hope it is soon.

Please PM me with parts and costs..

Thanks a ton.

I will make a center link kit available if needed.
PM me when actually needed.

I would not think you'll be ready to ride by March.
Of all the stuff I've broken, ribs are the worse.

That would be great Fuj...I appreciate it. I'll PM you when I get ready.

Ribs really do suck to break/heal...If I am lucky I will be able to "putt around" with the youngsters...definitely will not be doing much. But I will be cooking up some brisket and maybe pork butt on a smoker! LOL...

Thank you again,

ajramos

My biggest problem was if I had to sneeze during the
first several weeks. "DON'T SNEEZE" !!
