one seater vs two seater

Recommended Posts

Newbie here.

I'm looking for a new family hobby. 

I just bought my son his first atv and am now starting to look for myself.  The question is whether I should look at 2 seaters i.e. can am or single seaters.  Initially, I thought I would get a 2 seater for the wife and myself, but I am a little nervous because those units look so big.  I worry that it won't be as fun to drive and will be unduly heavy.  Also, I am thinking that if we like this new hobby the wife would like her own rather than riding behind me. 

Anybody want to chime in?

You've come to the right place, welcome to QUADCRAZY! The one seater larger ATVs can fit 2 people no real issues. I've had people on the back. I'm not a fan of the 2 seat factory design unless you are always going out with a second person. What you can invest in is some good rear cargo (atv trunk) to mount to your rear rack for seat extension and back support. However, I've never owned a two seater so maybe someone who has will have better insight! :D

Real Short, I have a Arctic cat 2 up ( two person ATV , one seat front and rear Connected ) I would not go any other way Personally. My wife have a Arctic cat Prowler SxS ( 2 Passenger Side by side ) It is bulky to me but each machine has it's own place in the market. I use mine for hunting and trail riding. We use hers to ride trails to get out to see what we see.

I just bought a new 2017 Yamaha Grizzly LE.  Brushed silver.   It is very cool.   Now just trying to find some trails for my son and myself. 

I plan to rent one for my wife initially to see how much she likes it ..or not .

Oooh...nice! Post some pictures or add some to the pictures section https://www.quadcrazy.com/gallery/

So the LE is a 700, does it have power steering? I have a 2004 Grizzly.

How much is it to rent an atv? You have a place by you that rents?

      Several months ago, I finally got around to fixing the bayou. Rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel selector switch, hoses and fuel filter, and she ran great. Only had 2 minor issues since then where, at higher speeds, it acted like it was choking out when I let off the throttle.
      Lately I've noticed if I let it go for more than a week, it almost drains the battery dead trying to start. I initially thought battery, but after inspecting I found very little if not any fuel flow through the line until it starts and runs.
      I'm a little baffled and don't have much time to mess with it as most my free time right now is spent on getting my rv up and ready for hunting season in the next 3 weeks. So any help on quick diagnosis checks would be helpful. Otherwise I'll just keep starting it every 3-4 days to keep things primed until I'm done hunting.
       
      Oh, and another question on a different topic. Does anybody know what the mounting brackets on the front rack are for? I'm referring to the 2 angled metal tabs with threaded holes that are located on the left, near your knee when sitting on the quad?

      Hi guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      Just picked an '03 Bayou 300 2WD.  It runs ok, needs a little help though. Maybe someone can answer some questions for me.
      1. The choke "off" position is the lever all the way right, correct?
      2. The choke seems mechanically... funky. It has a little valve clamp around the rubber boot where it goes into the carb, seems kind of janky, I don't think there's typically a valve clamp on that part? The engine seems like its running really rich, smoking a bit, so I wonder if I can just completely remove the choke cable to see if that's part of the issue? But I don't fully understand the choke needle setup. Is "choked" when the needle is being pushed in, or pulled out? Like it I chopped the cable just outside the rubber boot by the carb, would I be permanently choking it or permanently unchoking it.
      3. I've read that I can tweak the air/fuel screw and maybe fix the rich mix. Where is that even located, and if it's behind a cap that I have to drill out... where is that?
      Thanks for any tips
