Let’s get after it !!!

Recommended Posts

Today is February 11,2017. I know some of us ride all year round and a lot of us ride the warmer months.  Before you know it March is here and it’s the spring thaw with it! So to all my fellow atv, and 4x4 enthusiasts that are sitting on a broken bike or a bike that needs work let’s get after it!!!!! Don’t be left behind waiting.  Oil changes, repairs, upgrades let’s get out to the garage, barn, backyard or wherever you have your bike and get going.  Lets see some pics, ask the questions, Don’t be shy. Let’s  hear what you have planned for the upcoming months ahead. Trips, outings etc. Let’s get going now and be ready!  Hope to see a good response from everyone and I also hope that you riders have a lot of riding/mudding plans in your future. Remember you only live once!!!

Love this topic! Inspired me. I plan cleaning up my Grizzly, I have a lot of rust I'm seeing. I uses a snowsport plow system now in the winter and the bar is covered with rust. Once there is no threat of snow, I'm going to take it off and wire wheel the rust off. Then I'll spray some rust converter/primer and then some spray paint. I have to check my front end for play, replace my fuel petcock (because it's leaking), and clean the beast up in general. Beside riding, I have to get her ready for some yard work, grading (have an attachment), and some other things. Need to replace my winch rope, it snapped, and see about my front bumper. I'll try to post some of these things as we get into the spring.

I do my work in the spring to get ready for riding season. I don't leave anything broken, spring is the time I inspect the machines and replace the spark plug, check bushings/bearings and so forth. Sometimes ill take the winch out and clean it out.

I bought her a new machine last year so it shouldn't need anything yet. Her old quad was overhauled last year and since its a spare, it has little miles so it won't need much.

Awesome reply. Sounds like you have some work to do!!! I use a wire wheel attached to my grinder to clean the rust off of a lot of my parts and metal work.  Works great.  Safety glasses is a must!!   Can’t wait to see some pics.

I like having a spare bike. I have a 2001 bear tracker that’s a beast. This bike is a tough son of a gun, ITP rear tires that allow it to go a lot of places and actually have hurt a few feelings when some friends said the bike would not make it through some muddy terrain as they did on thier 4x4’s. 😂 But more importantly I have a few old buddy’s that like to come up and ride with us sometimes and the spare bike is nice to have.  I’m currently looking at a winch for the two bikes we have now but not sure if I’m going to put one on mine but my son is he’ll bent on having one on his.

I have to get a wire wheel bench setup. I only have an attachment I use on my screw gun.

A spare machine has come in handy a few times. Some of our trips are planned months in advanced, and if there is an unfortunate breakdown, well we grab the spare and ride. I also put the plow on the spare and leave it all winter. 

A winch is always a good idea to have.

    • 1993 Kawasaki bayou 400 help been sitting in barn

      I was given a 93 bayou 400 that has been sitting in a barn since some time in 94, hardly any use. The story behind it is the owner poured some gas out of a can full of trash and stopped the carb up. His meth head son took the carb off to rebuild it and got locked up, carb lost in the wind. The bike has been sitting covered ever since. The front rack and bumper has been misplaced but the rest of the bike is there and after washing off some dust it looks like a brand new bike. Still has the little tits on factory dry rotted tires. The old man is supposed to look for the missing parts but I don't have high hopes of them turning up. Just ordered a carb for it and now looking for missing front pieces. My main question is how much in common does the 400 share with the 300? Seems locally the 400 bayous are as rare as unicorn tears but I find 300 parts bikes all over for next to nothing. I looked on fleabay and seems most of the racks and bumpers on there look like they have been in a demo derby and cost way more than I'm willing to spend for something all beat to crap. If I knew the 300 stuff would indeed work I can pick up a whole bike minus the engine locally for $50.  Not tying to do a pebbles beach restro but just a nice atv we can work around the farm on while spending as little as possible. Most likely throw some 26's under it and also let dad deer hunt off it.

    • '06 Bruin 4x2 - broken drive shaft housing - options?

      Hola from Costa Rica - I have an '06 Bruin 4x2, and yesterday the drive shaft housing broke, and I'm wondering if anyone's been through this before, and what are my options to repair it. The housing broke pretty cleanly, just before the differntial mounting plate, the big plate with the 4 bolts holding this part of the housing to the rear differential.  This caused the rear axle to pull away a little and drop the drive shaft connection.  Luckily I was going slow at the time and stopped ASAP to assess what happened. Since parts are hard to come by where I live, and 3-5x more expensive than in the US, I'm wondering if I can just have the housing welded back together.  This part of the housing looks to have been forged as one piece, and the break looks pretty clean.  I think I should be able to just re-engage the driveshaft to the differential, and weld the housing back together, probably with a little reinforcement around this section.  Apparently this part of the housing is not too heavy a gauge metal, but I think it should take a weld just fine without further damaging the housing. Any opinions, advice, suggestions, etc. welcomed! Pura vida, Ray
