Searching for manuals and ATV information

Recommended Posts

Here's a  "heads up"  for   everyone searching for  owners  or  service manuals for your  quad.

While searching  for  service manuals to  help  others  posting  in the forum,  I've  come across a couple of  sites early in each search that  claim to  offer  the service manual needed.  When  clicking the  link for the  manual  pdf,  it opens a  download link showing an  .exe  file.  DO NOT CLICK ON ANY DOWNLOAD LINK THAT SHOWS AN EXE  FILE TO GET  A  PDF OF ANY  MANUAL !  I  am  running Windows  10  Pro and it is set  to   show the full address and type of any  file.  It also  prevents automatic  downloads unless I  specifically allow  them. Those  fake manual  pdf  downloads try to  automatically  install  the file  downloader it actually  contains rather than  a true  pdf.  Had it  actually been able to  run  automatically,  it would have downloaded a  load of hurt on my   PC.  The downloader link  was able to  install into the temp  folder in  my Windows but was not able to execute  because I did not  click to allow it .  Afterwards,  my  A/V  program detected  the malware in the temp  folder  and quarantined  it  for removal. Had  my  PC not  been set  to  show the complete address and type  of  file and to  not  automatically  download  files I'd have  one  very  compromised  computer.

Everyone ,  make sure  your  anti-virus  program is kept  up to  date with the latest  definitions  for  it.  Set  your computer  to  show the  complete  address and type  of file  rather than  allowing it to   auto - hide known  Windows  file types  so  a program  such as   xxx.pdf.exe  shows  as such  and  not  as just  xxx.pdf    with the   known  file type  .exe  hidden.

What a great topic and thanks for posting! Manuals are a top search for item here at QUADCRAZY and we have some members that have taken the time to post these manuals in the community, which we are all thankful for. We have a collection of some on this site and I'm sure there's more out there to share. Very soon, we will be launching a dedicated downloads section where we will have categories and offer the ability for members to share and download as needed. More to come. :D

Everyone  can download and save the manuals from those sites I listed. Rather than   download the  manuals and then  re-post them  on the  site, I  just  gave the  link  so those interested  can download the  manuals themselves.  I know  those  manual  downloads  are  legit  and safe  because I  did open  them in my  browser to  check  before posting the  links.

That works. We are going to start a a library of manuals and other downloads which are currently attached to topics all over the forum. :D

I  have a folder with  all the  manuals I've posted links to  on the forum  plus a couple of others.  I also  have  a file  listing all  the  BCI  battery  groups and their specs for anyone  wanting to  install  a second  battery  or  update  their  existing battery and want to  know what  battery  will  fit the  battery  box or  space available.

Another  file  that   is useful  if you want to  wire  in  an accessory  or other 12 volt wiring is one  listing the current handling  capacity of the  different wire gauges over the  length needed for the  application.

When  you   have  the  library set up  I  can upload them  all  to  it; although the  Suzuki  LTF-500  manual  is over  150MB  so  it exceeds the  max  attachment  size. All  the others  are  under the  limit.

Cool, you are welcome to test the downloads section (under the Browse menu on top). It is now open. For the branded ATV/UTV categories, when you add a file it will start a new topic in the corresponding forum. The Other files category will not. So what you will have is a topic like this:

Topic:

File:

(Most content will automatically embed within the topic when posting a url from this site and some others like youtube, google maps, etc...to make it pretty!)

I posted  up the  wire chart  and the  battery   groups information to the " Other files"  section of the  Downloads folder.

      Hello everyone, I’m new to this forum. I have a 98 king quad 300, I cannot get it to run right. It will start up and run for a little bit but then it starts sputtering when you give it throttle. It appears to me that it is getting to much fuel. 
      this is what I have done to it: new carburetor, new fuel filter, adjusted the valves.

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!
