Default IQR build thread

With the proxr finished, its time to start a new build.

I'v been wanting to build an IQR for boondocking/back country/jumping for a few years but have been waiting to find the right deal.

I finally came across a IQR that was dirt cheap. It's a 2005 (first year) IQR race chassis. Bought the sled stripped with all the parts in buckets. PO planned on powder coating it but never got around to it, which worked out perfect because I was able to inspect the bulkhead for cracks.

As of now, this is how it sits.. I will begin assembly/part inspection tomorrow.

It will be getting my 2002 VES 700, with PERC and oil injection. a prox 700 pipe will be cut to fit. Track will either be a 136x2 or 144x2. suspension will remain stock tell I can find good deal on aftermarket or pro setup.

Front suspension and steering hooked up. Shocks need rebuilt.

Removed chain case and pulled the like new 133" track.

I'm running out of things to do to it. I need to get a power addiction engine plate before I can do anything engine related. And I either need a 136" track (rear skid is setup for 136") to put under it or order a set of rail extensions for the 144 I have.

You seem to have the hook up on some sweet sled parts. You are doing the same thing I want to do... My 02 700 has 12000 mike's on it, and the chassis is shot. If you come across another iq, please keep me in mind.

Wow, 12,000 miles!

With as little places there is to ride that would rack up many miles I'm surprised.

I wish we had a trail system like exists in Maine... It's something like 14,000 miles of groomed and mapped trails.

Plyr2k, I browse sled forums regularly and keep an eye out for good deals. It took me a long time to find a iqr that was cheap enough for me to jump on the deal. I ended up finding this iqr on backcountryrebels.

I know it's not an iqr, but I do have a nice prox chassis sled sitting around sense I used the engine in my proxr.. Not sure if that is something you would be interested in or not.

Little over 1000 miles a year isn't that extensive... I've done the rings and pistons every 5000 miles. Sleds had an aftermarket pioe/can/head on it since 2000 miles. Clutches are redone, and it'll still pull 8400rpms (where the power is supposed to be with the engine set up) and never complain. Gotta love the 700s.

We've put on 300 in a day glassing Eureka for spring bear hunt.

Should be doing around 120 on Saturday from Caswell lakes to petersville, and back.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm going to have to decline. Looking to upgrade out of the edge chassis.

The prox chassis and edge chassis share nothing in common other then similar looks and the engine. Heck I think my proxr weighs in about 50lbs lighter then a short track edge.
Its all good I understand.

Found someone on CL with a 136, with any luck I'll have a track for the IQR soon.

Did a cruise down to Soldotna and picked up another 700ves.. No such thing as to many spare parts right?

Also picked up a slp pipe and can, was planning on putting it on my proxr... But it's just to ugly. Ha. So ill be using the slp pipe for this iqr. Will powder coating hold up to the temps the exhaust runs? Or would I be better off using high temp paint?

Take it to Advanced and have them ceramic coat it.

For sure they do. Had my rear window actuator for my bronco ceramic coated instead of p-coated due to the moving parts and it's held up great. Get with Dustin over there. He's always treated me right.

Put the 136 under it, bolted the chain case on and then went to bolt up the other side of the drive shaft.
All the studs (ones with the nuts on them) have spun loose from the flang/bearing retainer doohiky on the drive shaft.


I'm becoming very frustrated with this sled already! Haha. I do see a iqrr calling my name on cl... Anyone interested in buying this iqr? Lol
