Ok we got some pretty wild ideas for this thing.... should we go all in!?
Still no word on a project name?... I say the Jamaican Banana
Have you guys thought about putting a boondocker turbo on it?
Nothing too loose it’s internet worthy Isn’t it? 🤟
Please finish this build I want to see it..... I'm an late 90s early 2000s skidoo fan so the anticipation is killing me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love the videos but dang that was a horrible way to choose a winner for the giveaway😂😂 could’ve done a random number generator or something lol but other than that love the videos can’t wait to see this x3 rip it up with that 2 stroke power 💪🏻
It will put some heat on it as you have pressure on it you can do it Go Doug
Well looks like it's tube chassis time 🤘🤘 real tube chassis not stock "tube chassis"
Have fun swapping the frame. I have done 2. 1 RZR 800 and 1 Sportsman 850 XP. A lot of work to do because it has to be taken completely apart to the bottom before you can bolt anything on to the new frame and start building it back up. Make sure you gusset and sleeve the week points so you never have to do it again. Keep the content coming.
On the x3 you should Put tracks in the back instead of tires and put skies in the front like the snowmobile
Doug: green Me: yellow
Nothing quite like the smell of pre-mix and a nice warm stretch of sand. This build really makes me miss the drag quad we had for a while, custom built frame with a ZX6R race motor in it, was such a fast and fun bike and even with it's length (with tailgate down the back tires hung off the tailgate by a couple inches. Ran Jeep Paddles on it so similar to whats on 2JP) it handled surprisingly well on easy trails if you knew what you were doing.
Hung off the tailgate of a full size 8 foot bed of a Ram 1500 that is, so it was around 8 feet long give or take.
This thing is going to be sick!
Nice Job and great find. Good things happen to good people! Tough break turns into a good break.
Abort... Not worth the content. Safety is key. This may be going backwards compared to 2JP. Even Cleeter bailed on Jeffery. Build a mini megatruck?
Would you guys be interested in selling the bent frame
I think doug was teaching Leo that "everything was going to work out" because Doug always makes it work out. 😂😂
Gesus an the person walked away from that wreck ouch
Was that Cleeter's old sxs?
You should call this project triple X!
Reznor heater on the limiter! Lol nice frame and happy the project is coming together, also gives people a perspective on buying a beat up unit and repairing it.
Probably better off with a new frame. By the way as an owner of a 2020 yxz ss I would love to see what you guys could do with one. Keep up the good work.
SELL ME THAT OLD FRAME!!!!
There's plenty of room in the engine bay to make it a hybrid???? throw in an electric motor. We have world's first hybrid SXS
Boy's go to copart and find one for part's or to build
stress relive it with a hammer.
Chain it in multiple places to something that doesn't move and pull on it on whatever you want to move with a come along hooked to a truck.
Love the frame swap luck! Congrats Nigel!
Will Doug bench press this machine when its done and together? Im pretty sure he can.
Well you see what had happened wuz...🍻😂🤫
Keep up the good work fellows, I’m a long time subscriber and have a good laugh every episode, especially when sous goes subpeter,I think we need a subpeter shirt maybe, great work!
Hell yah get a good fab guy just cut the front end right off
Take a cutting torch and cut the parts free and re fab re weld it
I have a 2016 yxz that's about to go in for frame damage. Barrel roll over below 30 mph on sand. Several frame joints flexed and welds cracked. Looking close at the factory yamaha welds... they are garbage! Areas of no penetration, bird crap and flux just powder coated over with pin holes in the powder coat allowing corrosion to blossom around most of the weld joints. If my car is totalled as I shop for a replacement my attention will be on construction over features or performance. What good is a $23k car that can't handle a simple roll onto its top?
Geiser Performance X3 chromoly chassis would straighten this.
How the did cleetus crash the x3
Glad you found a frame I would of suggested looking up Henn racing technologies since they are the only MI company I know of with a x3 frame jig.
Classic can am chassis folding and buckling
he did a number on the cleater beater
The problem is the bar, it can’t flex that like because it’s not going to bend the frame back because the bar is taking all the force and bending
Take it to a shop with a Frame Rack.
I really want to like side by sides but man I crashed my yz450f on a 70ft jump (accidentally flew 100ft lol) a couple years ago and it literally needed new rads, plastics and bar mounts for a grand total of.... $600 and 30 minutes of work. Seems like you bump into a rock wrong with a sxs and it’s totaled.
I’m in the middle of a frame swap on my 15 xds maverick I wrecked in September definitely a lot of work.
Bro their McFlurry machine works up there 😧 danggg yall got em right and in line don’t ya lmao
You guys ever think about doing a Grind hard plumbing collab?
Make sure you gusset the new frame in the weak areas before you swap all of the parts.
You guys are the beez kneez. I’m pumped for all the videos. Can you do something badass with the General? It’s got so much more to offer than being a chase vehicle.
Put a lift in the shop it would make everything easier.
Save the weight and go 2wd
Cut the front clip off and make it 2 wheel drive. That car would be stupidly light.
add turbo cant wait to see it run!
I'm glad you got a new frame lol
Awesome project liking it even better with new frame!
Doug's face at 6 03 Hahaha
Meant to be fir that other frame to come in To play 👍🏻❄️
You can't just move Vin numbers legally , so don't do that.
I work at a body shop. A frame machine would easily pull that straight with no damage to the rest of the frame. We have done a few side x sides that where damaged similar to this.
Doug your brilliant buddy!
Bring it to a body shop and use a frame machine
21:49 is this how Doug gets so jacked? 💪🤣
I'm only a few minutes into the video but have you checked out a frame shop they could easily bend that, nevermind you just cut the frame 😂👍👍👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
The universe: "It just so happens.." [sound the air horns!]
What the heck did Cleetus do this poor thing...
My only question is what are you doing with the old frame...?
i was waiting for doug to say “we are gonna chop off the front and make the worlds first X3 trike”
I have a couple thousand miles on my X3 and its holding up pretty good (I have a shock tower brace and a gusset kit), but the front ends on these things are janke to put it mildly...wonder if a brace and gusset would have helped on this one? The Speed UTV chassis is light years ahead of these things and looking more and more attractive. Great vid!
Did I just hear him say they were going to swap VIN number plates? LMFAO, hope you misspoke or were joking. Nothing like saying on camera you're going to commit a felony.
19:00 is that legal to vin swap!?
Is there an automotive chassis puller anywhere close by that could pull the front end out for you guys?
I cringed every time someone stood in line with that porta power. I went to college for auto body and in our frame class had a kid get smacked in the forehead by the foot of one of them and got knocked out cold. Nasty concussion and had to get stapled back together.
Sooo, about the 3 mini turbos for that 2 stroke???!! Haha
A good guy with a fram unit or see if you can drill holes in the concrete and concrete chain on a plate could fix it all .
Full frame 10 miles down the road!!! 😂🤣😂🤣😂 I lost it when the camera panned to the new frame. Haha GO ALL IN!!!! I was getting bummed about all the issues and losing interest, that is until you showed the new frame and explained the new plan. 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼 hell yeah. Can’t wait.
Done a few frame swaps not on a x3 tho
Next giveaway I suggest you guys use a random number generator. Js
If the frame doesn’t re-bend you should take it to a frame shop
Move forward two bars from your push point run a 2 x 4 from side to side across the bar push off and that and you’ll push the front end right out without all the extensions
Run a 2 x 4 all the way from side to side across your push point and you will not crush that bar in your purse up front and right out
"This is gonna fall on me." Rich: watches for a moment, contemplating a SxSBlog takeover, then slowly walks over to move jack stands.
Thanks for the video. Watched it through surgery. You guys helped me out big time.
Also, we need to get you guys to 300k subscribers!
Fucking Cletus... Ruins everything he touches.
you boys gotta get a 2 post in there
that frame just seems really unsafe to reuse. You guys should get one of the new geyser frames. Be nice to see that project
And then turn around and put skis and tracks on it👀
good things happen to good people
Maybe you should put a couple extra gussets in that front end so it doesn't happen again well the frame is off
Damn it when i saw the 4 to 6 days later i figured itd be Doug rippin it around hahahaha had to Lmao my pants tear like that sometimes also and I always rock em as well screwww it!!!
My favorite thing about this channel is when you post a video you guys get so much done and its always a nice long video keep it up boys excited to see this thing rip go all out!
My gosh its going to be a perfect "Frankenstein".
no no no FRAME N STEIN!
This is an overall tough break.
You’ll have that on those big jobs 😂🤣
Are you guys gonna delete the 4wd on it? you'd save alot of mass witch would definitely help that triple out!
Nope we're gonna keep the 4wd, got other plans for dropping weight though...
Go all in on it guys
why no more yxz?
It'll be back, we're working on some stuff
I would cut out and rebuild
Force = mass*acceleration......You will need to generate at least the weight of the sxs multiplied by whatever speed cleet was going just to move it. Not to mention, you will have to produce close to double that number because its steel. You will have to push past the point where you want it to keep it, in order for it to stay in the correct spot. I know you are just trying to salvage it but figured I would drop some physics
I’m surprised your using that Doo motor as a “go big” project. Nothing wrong with it. It’s just not the biggest, baddest triple, triple. If your going to stay on this path, I’d find a T-Cat motor and breath on. Problem is, I just don’t think your going to see the torque numbers your looking for. It will sound cool, but compared to your other buggy’s it will be a pipey handful on the trail. Nice drag rig though.
Wanted to keep the brand matching on this one, and the 809 Doo motor is infinitely buildable. We'll get around the reduced low rpm torque with good clutching.
