Maintenance stuff

Recommended Posts

Got my first quad this past fall a 2011 Grizz 700 EPS, and now that spring is getting close I'm thinking about getting back to work on maintenance stuff. So couple questions...

1. What are some regular maintenance points that are done in the spring on these machines?

and

2. What are the regular maintenance points that are done every so many miles that I should look to do?

Other than changing out a torn CV boot and cleaning some crap out of the air intake foam in the fall I really haven't done anything to the Grizz. So not knowing its maintenance history I'm assuming it's due for everything...all fluids changed out etc.

Oh btw it's only got about 750 mi on it right now.

Thanks I'm all ears

      Got a good deal on an 89 bayou 300. Couple questions. First is in the picture I have posted. Note the two wires at the bottom of the pic (white and black/yellow). They were not hooked up to anything and Im not sure if they are supposed to go to the battery or somewhere else and what they are for.
      Second question is I had the carb apart for a cleaning. The vaccum operated slide has a spring under the cap with a plastic clip that goes inside the spring. Is there a proper location inside the spring for that clip. Right now it is just below half way inside the spring.
      It runs alright but keeps fouling the plug. Pulled the plug off, cleaned it and dried it off and it starts back up but not sure how long before itll do it again, last time it was about 20 minutes of riding and it bogged out and wouldnt start.

      Hi,  I'm looking for a repair manual for a 2011 Honda Rancher 420 ES.  I've been looking on here and have only seen manuals for the 420 AT.  Does anyone have a PDF that would be willing to share?  
      Thanks in advance.

      I have a 2011 850 Sportsman.  Has been absolutely trouble free except for 1 thing. I am on my 4th. ignition switch. I don't know if it's that they are all chinese junk or what.  It gets to a point  when you turn the key and it will act like the battery is going bad. Cranks real slow or not at all. Put a new switch in and its fine. New one will last 1 1/2 - 2 years and its junk. I've had the Polaris brand and after market. As a matter of fact the original one lasted the lest amount of time.  Other than that it's been a perfect machine . No electrical problems. No battery problems. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issue.

      New to ATVing and by the end of the summer I'll probably be heading out into some remote mountain regions for some back country trail riding, and I'm wondering just what kind of stuff/tools etc I should bring along in case of breakdowns/events etc. Short list so far includes a GPS (probably a Garmin Montana 650T), a tire repair kit, and courtesy of my Mom one of those satellite personal locator beacons, probably the ResQLink+ from ACR.
      Any other suggestions for stuff that might come in handy?

      Aside from changing the oil and filters etc. what do you guys routinely do to maintain/tune-up your quad while the "season" KS over and the machine will be basically over for a few mos. I have a 2006 Sportsman 500 EFI APand I want to keep it a long time and want to do all I can to see that that happens.
      Thanks in advance for your time,
      Bill

      I came across the stuff, it is used for keeping plastic trim on cars looking good. Despite the name it works on all color plastics. If your plastics start getting the white clouding from lots of scratches or the are just looking old and tired...this is the stuff for you. It's about $10 a bottle and you apply it with a simple clothe. Rub it in like lotion, Absolutely amazing stuff.
      Here are some before and after pics. This is all scratches from my boots on the plastics above and behind the motor.
