Hello yes apparently it’s a Chinese make  it’s very similar to this one , the problem I am having is I bought it a couple of years ago with a current Itv left in garage until this year cleaned it up and it works great went to the itv station yesterday they would not pass it because they say there is no hand brake on it and I need to have a separate hand brake fitted , so I went to two large quad distributors here in San Javier and was told it has a hand break and it is working fine they say there is no way to add anther brake system to the quad can you advise please

So this quad has a clutch? Existing hand brake is on the right side and clutch on the left? There is no way to add an aftermarket hand brake system. The hand brake engages the brakes via cable on most Chinese quads. The way it came from the factory is the way it is. I'm assuming your ITV station is some sort of inspection station? Can you take a picture of your quad and post it so we can see the hand brake setup and overall handle bars?

Yes but the Spanish Itv laws say it’s inadiuate and will not pass Itv it’s frustrating I’m stuck with a perfectly good quad that cannot be classed as road legal when it’s been allowed since new 2004

      My 2014 750 king quad stalls sometimes when I touch or turn the handlebars,the problem has gotten worse,my machine has 475 miles and is only trail ridden,I have a new factory battery and i have 14.2 volts when the quad is running and 13.3 on the battery when not running,also using a multimeter there is no change in volts when turning the bars until it does stall,If I pull the 40 amp power steering fuse it will not stall.......I've been told its the ECU,Hate to buy one if thats not the problem,but its kinda leaning towards that,,,,,need some opinions.

      I just bought this thing and got the carb all cleaned today and it was running like a champ. There was a spare hot wire hanging down that was not hooked up to anything. I found it when I took all the covers off and did the carb work. Unfortunately I forgot it as well when I fired her up after cleaning and replacing the carb. While I was running her, the wire was lying across the exhaust pipe. The exhaust got hot, melted the insulation and next thing I know I see sparks flying everywhere Bike immediately shut down and all lights went off. I have nothing on the console now when I turn the key over. I fear I have fried my ECU. I found one fuse back by the box, a 30 amp, but it was good. Are there any other fuses on these things? Is there a way to test the ECU? Could it be the rectifier or voltage regulator?
