Hello All, The KYRider site I was a member of for years has shut down. So, here I am. I currently own a 450 Kodiak with several mods and some yet to be installed. Tomorrow, I will look at a Blaster thats in great shape. It starts and runs great. However, It will not go into gear. Im pretty sure I can fix this relatively cheap. I have not priced Blasters in years but the asking price is $600 firm. Is this reasonable? Thanks,

Just got back from the motocross track, where I busted my quad (2008 KFX 450). Keep in mind that these may be stupid questions. I'm new to riding and don't know anything about anything.
The chain was a little loose, I believe, and I probably should've tightened it (not that I know how to tighten a chain) but I'm not sure if that came into play here. I took a jump and didn't let off the throttle. I over-revved the engine and the rear sprocket snapped off while I was in the air.
It looks like there are 4 bolts that hold the sprocket on and it appears that those bolts have been completely sheared off (see pics below). If this is just a matter of replacing these bolts, that would be awesome. Are these bolts meant to shear under pressure (like the shear pin on a boat propeller)? Also, in the side that still has nuts, that bolt is pretty skinny. The corresponding hole on the sprocket is much larger. Are these some sort of specialty bolts?
Am I not even in the right ballpark with these issues? I seriously have no idea what I'm doing here.
I appreciate any help.
Great to be on the boards. Just picked up a 2013 Polaris Sportsman 550 XPS LE. Its my first quad, and am just waiting for some slightly warmer than 10 degree temperatures to get out and enjoy it. My buddies were pushing me towards a dirt bike, but considering that I have kids it made more sense to go with a quad, not to mention I am just at an age where trying to keep up with seasoned riders just sounded painful.
In any case, I plan to do the weekend getaways with the dirt bike crew, fully understanding they will likely be doing something different than I will. I ordered a bunch of gear for the next trip. Helmet/goggles, jersey, pants, gloves, and boots mostly MX gear. It made sense to have clothes designed to be in the mud and dirt and offer protection should something go wrong.
In any case, my 2 wheeled friends are feel that its exceptionally ridiculous for quad riders to be outfitted in MX gear, and very mock worthy. ESPECIALLY, if the gear matches. They feel anything more than a helmet is ridiculous. I totally get skiers wouldn't dress like boarders, and when you golf you dont wear jeans etc. but is there a similar dress code for ATV riders?
