I've had this machine for 2ish years, has ran great up until winter. Sometime during then, I managed to break the exhaust right before the muffler. The summer before it had a hard time idling, but we fixed it by cleaning the carb, and messing with idle. Near the end of last year, the only way for it to fire was the have full choke, and full throttle, and the engine bogged down and you had to keep on throttle for 25mins. Over winter, the throttle had dislocated, and I got it back in place. We got it running, and all was good. Spring came along, and now it doesn't start at all. A fluid is coming out of the exhaust, and I'm told it could be water from over winter. I checked the airbox, and the air filter isn't for this quad, it also is barely sucking air. There appears to be little to no compression, based on this. I'm pretty sure the engine is flooded, as the spark plug produces a spark, but is oxidized. I don't know how the previous owner treated it, or when it's last oil change was. A bolt on the engine has either oil or gas seeping through it,abd was loose. I tightened it and it consisted. The engine is basically positioned in the rear, and it needs a good clean, I don't have a pressure washer, so I can get the built on dirt off. any recommendations on how to get the beast started again?
Tonight is the first presidential debate and it should be a record breaker for viewing. Might as well have a mini poll here on QUADCRAZY to see how they stack up. Make your choice in the poll and feel free to comment in this topic. I'm going to pin this topic and keep it going through the elections in November.
I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
Safety Is A Concern For Kids ATVs
The family is into racing ATVs and now the children want to get in on the action. How do you start with someone who is too young to drive a car, but yet sees other children their own age charging through the woods racing an ATV? A tough decision for parents, but with a lot of planning and instruction your kids ATV can become a reality.
Safety should be your first concern before getting the kids ATVs for their own use. You should plan on doing your research to make sure that you get the best kids ATV available for their age group and size. The research should include surfing the web and also by reading Consumer Reports—both of these will provide you with a tremendous amount of information on kids ATVs.
It is recommended that the youngest kid ATV riders should have an ATV that has an engine with no more than 4.3 cubic inches. There are not too many choices at this size for kids ATVs, but you want to ensure that your child is not riding a machine that it too large for them to handle.
As a concerned parent, you should check into the ATV Safety Institute. This group offers safety courses all over the country. The experienced instructors will teach you and your kids about pre-ride inspections, warm up exercises, braking, turning, and shifting. They also teach you about clutch and throttle control and about the importance of body position and simple maintenance. In addition they cover riding techniques and how to tackle obstacles, hills and different kinds of trails. All of these issues are important safety issues for your kids ATV riding.
So, what are the features will your kid's ATV have? One company has an experienced team of ATV enthusiasts that work with you on your kids ATV to hand select the perfect one. Each ATV they have is designed with safety in mind and they offer a 4-point safety system which includes a throttle limiter, an emergency kill switch, a safety kill tether and a remote kill key. The kid ATVs are safe and they come with a 4 stroke engine, headlights, an electric start and disk brakes. This company that focuses on safety with kid ATVs is Motorxtremes. They want to make sure that every kids ATV is safe and that the rider follows all safety precautions.
You should make sure that your kids ATV comes with all of the necessary additional safety equipment to make their ride as safe as possible. Every kid ATV rider should have a helmet with a full-face cover, goggles to keep dirt out of their eyes, gloves with finger and knuckle guards, a shirt with long sleeves and safety pads for their chest, shoulders, elbows and knees.
Make sure you and your children know the rules of riding ATVs. While you can not ensure that your kids ATV rides will be completely accident free, you can help them by providing the best additional safety equipment available.

No lift , sorry I just put that tag on picture, But I first put ITP type 7 mags with mud lite 25'" tires on it, I think 25 X 8 X 10 on front and 25" X 9 or 10 X 12 on rear, all on 12 inch rims. It did no rub any on the front or rear and I even could have went up to 26" in the rear (Plenty of room) It gave me just at or over 2 inches in ground clearance. Man all the frame bottoming out went away and did I have some fun in the mud holes. This disgusted all my ridding buddys because I went everwhere they went and most of the time I was the first to hit the deep mud holes. Also If you want a little deeper sound just take the spark arrester out, sounds great. Caution though if you go from stock tires to tires like mud tires I went from spinning my wheels on steep hills (To steep really) to the rear tires catching fast and flipping it on me a couple of times. However I see you have a winch to weight you down in front.
The second wheel & rims seen in picture are ITP type 4 mags with the same tires as above. Let me know if you need some help on the thing i have changed brakes it and a few other things.
The above is a pm I recieved. Just thought I would share with evrybody.
ok so ive been talkin to some ppl with these rev boxs and they say its a quick, easy, and worth buying upgrade.
heres the one im thinkin about buyin...
eBay Motors: AMR STAGE 2 REV BOX HONDA TRX 400EX IGNITION 400 CDI (item 370064886695 end time Aug-28-08 16:57:54 PDT)
i was talkin to my buddy about it and he said it would eventually blow the engine(i kno bullshitt right?). i said i wouldnt think so, unless i held it wide open for a prolonged amount of time. but my question is, could this rev box possibly blow my engine? im tryin to make my quad as fast as possible without taking away the 400ex's well known reliability.
and another question wat stage should i get? stage 2 or 3? remeber my quad is stock
thanks alot guys
