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!

All depends on what toy I'm playing with. I have a 84 trx200 all work have 03 sportsman 500 about 60/40 and have an 05 raptor that is no work.

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.

      the king quad had sit for about 1 1/2 years. So I rebuilt the carb and now it will not start. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

      Yes I just got a 1998 polaris xplorer 400 4x4. Ran fine after hauling then died. Cleaned carb and put new fuel filter, hose, and new battery in. Starts 3 out of 10 times but will only run for a short time. Any suggestions?

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      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

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!
