Help ....... I am not mechanically minded ūüė≥ so any assistance you could give would be greatly received. ¬†I was ridding the quad and it cut out, before it cut out it made a couple of¬†pinging noise‚Äôs¬†I think it was from exhaust ?

many thanks

A little more info on what type of ATV would be helpful and if you lost electrical or something else while riding. What happens when you tried to restart? Are there ignition lights?

ūüėä yes it would help. ¬†It‚Äôs a Yamaha Bruin 359. ¬†When I tried to restart the first time, with choke it started but then cut out when I gave it revs. ¬†Electrics were fine as when towed back hazard warning lights were on. ¬†Before it cut out, there were a couple of pinging sounds from the exhaust I think. ¬†Also, when towed back I had the ignition turned on, so the hazards could work. ¬†As I got to the top of the hill I was able to free wheel down, when I got to the bottom there was a buzzing noise coming from the steering column and a little smoke started coming out as well. ¬†Did the free wheeling cause a 2nd problem? ¬†Electrics are still working

Kind Regards

free wheeling cause a probleme only if your brakes were applied as long as your were in Neutral positiion.

If it stopped, while working, maybe u had a fuel cut-out? check your fuel filter and carburetor

      Hello - I have just had delivered my 2004 registered King Quad 300.
      The gear change is pretty fierce.  Pretty hard to get into gear from neutral on the foot pedal and when I select reverse on the hand lever, it jumps into reverse with a hell of a kick.
      I am waiting for a service manual to arrive, but in the meantime, has anyone any suggestions please?
      Thank you.

      Hello all, 
      I haven't had a dirt bike or ATV for years, but a buddy of mine just picked up a raptor 700 and makes me want to get back into the sport. I'm looking for the best bang for my buck utility quad that can go in snow, but also hit some small jumps and trail ride. It would mostly be used for light trail riding; not really any mud holes or jumps around me (Bristol, Massachusetts). My last bike was a 2004 yz125 2 stroke and it was a pain. Every other ride I was doing something to the bike. I'm looking for a utility quad that I can ride for a month without having to touch it. I've done a bit of research so far and it seems like my best bet would be ~2014 Yamaha grizzly 700 with ~1000 miles for about $5,000. I'd love some more opinions from people who are more knowledgeable about the sport. I'm looking to stay around that $5,000 range. Also, there's no trails around me to go more than 40 or 50mph so I'm not too worried about keeping up with the 700.

      I have a Yamaha YFM225 which sounds really noisy exhaust wise.  It had no baffle so I bought and installed that but it seemed to make no difference.  There are no leaks from the manifold or exhaust but the damm thing just sounds  so loud !

      Hello from Buhl, Idaho (near Twin Falls). I typically ride at least once a week in the Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area. Also like to ride in Colorado, Utah (especially Moab), Montana and Wyoming. I currently ride a 2013 Yamaha Grizzly 550. Anybody want to ride in Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area look me up. I know these areas very well. I've also done a lot of dirt bike riding and 4X4 (Jeep) in the above listed areas over the last 15 years.

      Hi Folks,
      Just bought this 1991 King Quad and it is missing the right front axle.  It runs and drives in 2 wd, would be nice to find parts or whole axle to make the 4 wd drive work again.  A rebuildable  axle would be fine.  Any help would be great.  
      Thanks Hilltopmike
