Thank-you Bradley.
As I was questioning myself (I've never owned a quad (Yet)), on the firing order. A reply followed to help clarify things on the same thread. By the same fella that re-designed the GP123 carb base.

"I will be surprised if the crank is twisted in the v3 .These crankshaft were really beefed up compared to the v2. They have 16mm crankpins instead of 12 and the area and mass of the pressed fit was at least a third more. And no welding! The four cylinder front and rear banks fire 180 degrees apart so if you turn the crankshaft till the front bank pistons are on top dead center the rear should be at bottom. If not the coupler let it twist or broke.Turn the crank till the top of one of the front bank pistons is just opening the exhaust port, the other piston on the front bank should be in the same spot in the other side port. Then turn it 180 degrees and check the rear the same way. If this checks out your crank is not twisted..
Hope this helps "

I think it's been going on the TV non-stop since Friday night, LOL!

Good news is that Skipper has really got the kids excited for the CompARF Corsair / Moki250, LOL!!

+ YouTube Video

Trevor, while at one of the fun-fly's this summer. A member had a pirated copy of "Planes". Showed it on a big screen for all to view before the campfire games started. Family hour.
It only seamed a natural. The kids will like it. I have a set of home made ski's, black that will look/work great on it as well, come spring.

Floats can't be much heavier than those 25oz wheels you use.

OK, I'm subscribing. Velcro gloves and their use on eastern sheep, 150hp vibrators, cartoon characters come to life... I've gotta see where this heads.
