Fire retardant material?

Recommended Posts

I've seen the suggestion to either carry some kind of fire extinguisher or a fire retardant material on trail rides. I doubt I'll be taking on the weight of even a small fire extinguisher, but I'd still like to have some way to put out a fire. What would be a good 'fire extinguishing material' I could bring along that would work say if a fire started in a hard to reach part of the motor that I could just maybe grab a hand full of and throw it on? I'm imagining it would be something granular like sawdust (but of course not sawdust).

Thanks

    • 2005 Polaris Trail Blazer 250 won't start

      Hi guys, trying to get a quad running again. It was running fine but the electric start did not work. My uncle was using it and the pull start snapped. So I replaced the pull start and electric starter motor. Now it just cranks and cranks but will not start. I have spark, I have fuel to the carb, I know this is a 2 stroke with a separate oil tank, what else should i check?

    • 08 Grizzly 660 Brake Pads Suggestion

      I am looking for a new set of front and rear brake pads for my 08 grizzly 660.
      I usually go with EBC,they had good performance in my atv but went for a rest after 18,000 miles.
      I think $40 per a pair is expensive.So this time I want to have cheap brake pads replacement like Foreverun Motor.
      Have you heard this brand before ? Any good or bad reviews ?Thank you.

    • Early 2000s Polaris Trail Boss 325 4 Stroke Fuel Issue

      I wanted to ask this question before I pull this thing apart and dig into the carb. Very seldom used for a couple years but took it out the other day and it ran like crap. Blows black smoke on throttle (unburnt fuel) and sound like a multi cylinder engine with a misfire. Won't rev very high on full throttle but seems to be smooth at about 1/3 or less throttle. Choke doesn't seem to do anything and thinking perhaps it's stuck closed. If I turn off the fuel and let it run for a minute It will rev like normal under full throttle until it stalls out from no fuel but as soon as I open the fuel line again it goes right back to running rich/flooding.   Any help or ideas would be great. Trying to avoid tearing it apart and rebuilding the carb but the only thing I can think is the choke is stuck cause with the fuel off it will rev just fin seemingly as it's emptying the float bowl.

    • Michigan guy looking for (over 50) ATV friend to camp/trail ride with

      Summer days here in the northern part of the state don't last that long! Right now is perfect riding conditions with cooler nights slowly creeping in. 
        My son and I will be going up this weekend but its been nearly 2 months since our last trip up and after our next trip it could be quite some time before he'll be able to get more time off work. 
        If you know anyone that might like a few days out up north to do a trip to ride and camp please get in touch real soon! Thanks Steve
