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

      Hi All,
      Want to show you one automotive show that I filmed in my town called Crazy Race. This was two day race in Qualifications round, Semifinals and Final. In this 4 parts I am showing best moments from all rounds and entertainment of the show.
      Crazy Race Part 2 contains a qualifying round where all riders race against each other, selected by lot and split by two. They are free to drive in any direction and to hit their opponent's car everywhere except at the driver's door. Anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified. Winner of each race continue in the semifinal round. In this part I will present the best moments of the qualifying round! 
       
      Part 3 shows you the best moments from Day 2 - Semifinals and Final. Battles in the semifinals are among the winners of the first day races, but this time they are selected by lot and divided into 4 battles of 4-5 cars each. The rules in each battle are that they only have to drive in one direction and try to neutralize other opponents until there are only two players left. Then the battle between the two last drivers has the rule to drive in any direction until only one who has qualified for the final round is left. Again, anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified.
      For the final round there were only two cars left, because the other two players who got the right to be there had problems with their car and could not participate.
       
      Part 4 containing entertainments between battles and winners rewarding.
      This event will have second round in 05-06 October 2019 and also will be filmed  For this new round I will filmed in many new angels and places. Will prepare a lot more videos and many new entertainments . This 4 videos was my first try so many things to wish for better filming in the future one.
      Hope you will like them and of course feel free to comment and to ask everything. Hope you will Subscribe to my channel and to be first to see my other content and of course new round of Crazy Race! Thanks!

      I have a 2000 Polaris Xplorer with the 250 two stroke motor
      It does not want to start with the electric start, the motor cranks fast, the battery is good, and there is good spark when cranking. The engine starts perfect when using the pull cord, it even starts if I pull the cord slowly and starts with one pull. The engine idles smoothly once started. My wife says she needs the electric start to work.
