New here and already with some complaints lol.

We ordered a set of A-arms from Epic for a yamaha 450 and a DS650 about 2.5 months ago and still have not seen them. I think this is ridiculous, dont you? I was told by Dean @ Epic that we should have them 3 weeks from date of purchase. The 3 weeks went by and was told that another 3 weeks before we would get them. Then they said another 2 weeks. Then they said another 2 weeks. We called EPIC 1 week ago and were told that BOTH the yamaha and the DS650 arms were going to arrive together and to not worry. Now Epic says the yamaha a-arms are going to be ready for pick up his friday 1/18/08 but they have not even satrted building the DS650 a-arms yet and that "MAYBE" they will start building them sometime next week or the next. I am very frustrated with this company and I think this is unsatisfactory. I cant believe I spent over $1600 in parts almost 3 months ago that I don't even have yet. So I told Alba (the store where I purchased the parts from) to find out if my DS650 a-arms were going to be built next week. I also told them that if they don't have them even started yet, then to cancel the order and order me some LONESTAR arms, since they do have them in stock. I cant believe I have missed some races because of a company that eventhough has my money already, has not delievered their product nor service.

Sorry for the rant. I had to vent. I am just warning anybody that is thinking of ordering a-arms from EPIC and let them know what they will be facing. I think EPIC doesn't really care about loosing customers.

Well, I just cancelled my order with Epic and ordered with LONESTAR. I even saved $225 by going with LONESTAR and used that extra money to purchase their 1 1/8" +2 chromoly steering stem and stem clamp. They assured me I would see the a-arms and stem in a week and even got custom powder coat color of my choice for free (a-arms). There is no comparison when it comes to customer service between EPIC and LONESTAR. Bobby @ LONESTAR will hook you up and will gladly answer all your questions.

Glad That You Got Something Accomplished And Hopefully No More Races Are Missed. Customer Service Is Something That Should Always Be Serviced Correctly And Quickly As Possible, And Thanks For The Heads Up About Epic

No, prob. thats what the internet is for, lol. As far as customer service, yes, I agree with you, that will always have customers coming back for more.

      The 2024 ATVs are out and I was just looking at the websites for Yamaha and Suzuki. The Grizzly and King Quad have come a long way, probably two of my favorite quads over the years. Both of these come with power steering but I almost like the King Quad styling a little more. The plastics haven't changed much over the years either, mayeb a little more rugged. The King Quad racks are more like the Polaris plastic racks (I think they were the first to introduce these) but on a closer look, I think its just plastic covers over the traditional metal racks. The Grizzly still keeps the old style metal racks. I like the display/instrument panel on the Grizzly more.

      Thoughts on these two? Here's a pretty good comparison of both 2023 models. I didn't know some of these things like no seat latch on the Grizzly and hydraulic rear brake vs cable. Good video to watch if you are consideting these:

      Hello folks, my machine wound up with I think water in the tank etc. It runs but speeds up and slows back down randomly. When not running I don't see gas dripping  from the drain nipple on bottom of float bowl and drain screw is closed tight. With normal idle speed I see no leaking. When the idle speed increases quite a bit on it's own, gas appears to start slowly dripping from float bowl drain nipple? I'm wondering if the carb is flooding and the gas is actually coming from higher up and just appears, to be coming out of nipple but, is actually running down the sides of the nipple? I put a kit in the factory Mikuni carb last year after sitting for a while and I think the gas in the jug I used had drawn moisture. I plan to pull the carb tomorrow and clean everything out. I was just curious if anyone else thinks it's probably something in the carb and is, acutally a flooding problem? Thanks Folks! 🙂

      The choke lever doesn't stay in position on my 2001 Yamaha Kodiak.  The model is YFM 400.  I have to hold the lever to the choke position manually for some reason.  Any Ideas as to why?

      My Yamaha Big Bear shifts through all the gears good, goes into reverse smoothly, but when i go to get out of reverse it takes a lot of effort to get it back to first gear, and even then it does not go very smoothly, have to pull up on the pedal really hard, anyone else ever had this problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
