Work vs play

Recommended Posts

Just a curious thought-what percentage of your quad use is work (yard, field, hauling, etc) vs playing (exploration, recreation, enjoyment) 

personally mine is about 60/40 work to play.  Most of the work is winter plowing!

Just bought my first quads, mainly for work. Now need to build a log arch or two.

We just moved out to an acreage.  So far my quad has been used more for work...Hoping that changes soon

I know this is an older post but felt like contributing, yesterday my son and i were on our property hauling out down trees , figured taking advantage of frozen ground would make the dragging easier, we ended up putting 9 hours in 

just hooking choke chains to logs and pulling out , it was fun did some great work , exercise, played with the quads a bit and had fun.

That’s awesome.  9 hours though !! 🥶 

That’s a lot of fire wood!  I like when it’s cold out the bikes have a lot of bark to them and run great.  Octane stays high in colder weather and the fuel burn is so much better so gasoline engines typically run better!  But that’s great stuff @Airborne

I just decided to get one for play.  Snowmobile season has been pretty bad the last four years around here and wanted something that I can actually use. The sleds haven't had a much opportunity due to weather.

When I first got mine, it was 80% play. But now I'd probably say 50/50. The work is mostly snow removal and yard work and the play is less frequent than it used to be.

      OK, sooo  I finally did the old skid plate and screen removal to clean out my oil sump during an oil change...  This bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.  Runs like a top still...  Very few issues over the years after buying it used.
      But boy I wasn't expecting to see this!  Piece of a circlip, stuck up in the screen, and a another shard of metal and maybe a piece of gasket material.  Nothing in the oil but that...  Pristine otherwise, and still runs like a top.  Always has.
      Soooo, is it a wrist pin clip?  That's the only thing I can think of like this that could end up in there.  But definitely wanted to throw it out to guys that have seen the innerds of these more than I have.
      The valves on this thing are still within the factory spec even.  Been a really good lil workhorse...
      Any other ideas?

      in this thread, I want to discuss how 4-cycle atv engines work- what the different types are...  how they are set up and which you prefer.  To start off, are the cams on ALL atv 4-strokes powered by a cam chain?  I know that on say a lawn mower or logsplitter engine, the cam is turned by the tappet, pushrods, and valve rockers.  Which is better and why?  Chain-driven cams or pushrod-driven cams?  Are the pushrods just an old version and everything is transforming to chains or the other way around...or not at all?  Just looking for some explanation, history, and downsides/upsides...

      Looking for the rectifier.  Most bikes have near magneto.  It appears the KQ has it in front.
      Can someone tell me exactly where it is?
