Just picked up a 2003 Yamaha Kodiak 450 ATV. Doesn't run and it's been sitting out in a field for a while faded bodywork, seat's a mess, dead but it rolled so I figured for $100 what the hell, SOLD! I have no idea what could be wrong with it, first thing I guess is hook up a battery and see what happens. I'll likely be back here with questions for the forums collective experience. Live in the Santa Cruz Mts and sure could use a little work horse like this quad to haul stuff up and down my steep property. Thanks in advance.
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!
Just joined about a week ago since i recently bought a 2001 Yamaha Big Bear 400 4x4
We have also had a 2000 Honda Recon for about 10 years
Live in southeast Geriga and use them mostly on the property as work horses and the kids and grandkids to ride
I am sure i will have lots of questions of maintenance and upgrades,,,
looks like a great place for it!
Hey guys! Stoked to be here because ive found its pretty hard to get help for mini quads
I recently bought a mini quad (it's a piece of poop so i have no clue the make) and it ran perfectly fine. I was running it a few weeks ago all day and it worked fine and the next day when i went to start it, the kickstart bar was super hard to push down but i could still do it, then it would skip and finish off hard to push down.
I have fairly intermediate mechanic abilities so i was able to pull off the cover and start playing around. it seems the kickstart spring is fine but i noticed a bunch of metal shavings. long story short i posted pictures and took a video of how things are kind of running. i assume the gears started grinding and now they wont catch fully, hence the skipping?
Also, im aware the main gear on the left has broken teeth, i found out the hard way when i tried to take off the nut and the teeth broke.

Hi HiSun Forum Group.
I am a new member looking for some guidance on how to properly adjust the carburetor. My general (and maybe flawed) understanding is that there is supposed to be both a Fuel side and an Air side adjustment screw on most Quad & Side by Side carbs. My HiSun 700 seems to have finger-spin idle adjusting screw (easily accessible on the driver's side of the carb) and a Carburetor Pilot Screw (not easily accessible, directly underneath the carb but above the engine head). My instinct tells me that the Pilot screw is for adjusting the Fuel as it is on the Fuel side of the Carb. I don't see any adjusting screws on the Air side of the carb. I've adjusted the pilot screw several times but never successfully eliminating the back-fire upon deceleration issue. Any intel on my apparently missing Air adjusting screw and or back-fire issue is greatly appreciated.
Additional notes: My spark plug and fuel filter is new and I only use non-ethanol fuel. Manufacturer of the motor is Chongqing Huansong Industries Group Co., Ltd. Engine Family: 8TMTX.700A10
