Welcome to QUADCRAZY! This is a first for me, never heard of that quad.  Is that a UK ATV manufacturer? I would contact them direct and there are a couple of email addresses on this page http://www.apachequads.com/contact-us.php

Does it look like this?

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?

Isn't the lever on the right side a hand brake?

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

      I cannot get this drum off, I already have another drum and backplate on order because I've ruined this one trying to get it off. Completely rusted to splines. I cant fit any hub or wheel puller known to mankind onto these lug studs to try and pull it off, I'm really running out of ideas.

      Haven't got a service manual for this yet so I'm flying by the seat of my pants I made myself a shifter extension to go up by the gas tank took my foot shifter off to weld it and now when I put it back on I don't seem to be able to find neutral. Is there some asinine reason that you have to do something internally when you change or remove the foot shifter? It was a simple take off weld put back on and dog bite my pecker it's not working. I hope this is something simple I've done and that's something I need brain surgery for. Cheers fellas I know y'all will have the right answers

      Anyone have any thoughts on the early Quad Sports?  My very first ATV was a 1985 LT230S,  me and a buddy purchased them brand new in 1985, rode those little bikes till the wheels fell off,  I would like to find one to restore for nostalgic reasons and to teach my 14 yo son to ride.  Nice meeting you all!
