getting my first quad, need help

Recommended Posts

hi, so i decided that i want a quad.  and i want a sport quad.

so, i want to be able to ride it on the road and offroad and such, nothing crazy. i dont know were to start, like how many cc? automatic, 2 or 4 stroke, 2wd-4wd, brand, and so on.

i dont want to have a beginner model and work my way up, i want the baddest and best now:D 

ive been thinking of dirtbike first, but when my coworker expalined about how many times you must change oil i thought he was kidding but no. so i hope its not the same on the quad motors.

 

thanks for any input...

okay, ive just had a ride on it, and even tough ive never ridden one before, this cant be this unstable. ive checked up on the owners history and it had been sold fairly quickly from person to person, so i think that is the reason.

the problem is that it shoots side to side and wander very much from side to side. i had it up to 60kmh and that was very dangerous, its like it hops a few cm to one side even tough i am keeping it straight.

im gonna google some and fix this problem. if you guys have any suggestions i would appriciate it.

Get the toe fixed so the wheels are pointing straight ahead, and make sure the air pressure is the same from side to side. If riding on pavement at high speed I always feel a little nervous since those high grip off tires aren’t made for that

Better look closely for a bent tie-rod or something like that. Usually bad alignment is caused by some kind of impact.

i just changed over to the stock off road tyres, and i must say that it rides so much better. even on pavement. the ones that was on it when i bought it was slick pavement tires, but every bump and tracks in the road made it "all over the place" 

also i had much better controll over the quad with the dirt tires. so im very happy now

      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.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.
