    Hey all, I have extreme vibrations coming from the clutch side of my 89 Safari Scout E. So much so that the entire hood is shaking around. It just started today and the only thing I've changed is removing the brake assembly from the sled. (put it back on obviously) It started when a big chunk...

    Hello, I have a tundra 300 1998, but I just bought a safari cheyenne 503r lt 1990, and I was wondering what was the top speed of this machine, and if it goes well in powder. Also, I was wondering if there are some cheap modifications I could do on it to make it even better in powder.

    Hello, I love the forum, old Doos and looking for some advice. I have three Cheyenne 503s and I have to choose one to be my main sled, and I'll be selling one. They're all basically the same, but the main difference is the '91 has an updated gearbox and some weird extra brake lever thing that...

    From what I understand, the 447’s are prone to cylinder damage and its pretty rare to find replacement jugs for them. I also have heard that the 447 engines are identical to the 377 (which are a dime a dozen). Has anyone had success with puting jugs/pistons from a 337 into a 447? Is it that...

    Thought I would post this as an FYI. I struggles with fixing two of the major inconveniences of the Safari L models: the front suspension boots and the fuel gauge. For the boots, I bought the widest motorcycle fork I could find off of ebay. They were cheap- like 4 bucks shipped. They were...

    I was wondering if anyone has ever taken a safari 503 and converted it into a 503R?? Is it as easy as taking a gearbox from a 503R and replacing the chain case in the 503? Or is there a lot more needed in order to do this?? I know a guy who has a complete 503R parts sled and was wondering if its...

    Hi I am new to this forum. I am just checking if any one has taken a tunnel off a 90's Safari and put it on an older 80's Safari before.
