Hi folks! Time to try 4 wheels when its time to put away the toy with 2!

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. 

Winter is creeping up on eastern Canada and I felt the urge for a toy to hold me through the winter while my trusty Honda CBF600SA snoozes.

Can't do it easy tho.... has to be a project of course! So on the weekend found me a mostly there 91 Kawasaki Bayou 300 KLF300. And tonight a 94 300 parts quad followed me home!

Hopefully I'll have the runner under its own power this weekend. Seller had a terrible time to get it to start, and when it did would only run for a few seconds. .. but enough to hear it and know there was some life in her! Planning a valve adjust, new fuel line (current is super hard and probably brittle as all heck!), and maybe a carb once over. 

Maybe I'll even try and make this thing un-ugly again later on. 

Anyhow, glad to be here!

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      Hello, great forum here!
       
      I bought a non running 1998 Big Boss 500 6x6. The previous owners had done quite a bit of work to it. It has a new carburator, fuel pump, starter, adjusted the valves, new mid sprockets and chain. But they said it wouldn't run.
       
      When I got it home I did get it to run, though not very well. It doesn't want to idle and there is a very loud knocking. I didn't run it very long. Hopefully it's just the clutch knocking. It has 4000 miles on the odometer. I popped off the valve cover and the cam looks ok, (it's not flat!) I haven't measured it yet. I still need to check compression.
       
      There's no oil in the gearbox, found a crack in the case behind the output shaft. Looks like a mounting point?
       
      I think I'll try and find a case half. I should probably tear apart the gear box first, it might be in bad shape inside. Who knows how long it was ran without oil. It does shift between all gears.
       

       

       
      The rest of it is in fair condition, normal wear and tear for 4000 miles.
       
      Sorry I don't have any pictures of it other than the cracks.
       
      I should probably make sure the motor is good before I put money into the gearbox.
       
      Any tips on things to look for would be appreciated!
       
      Thank you

      Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but I have. 2000 Honda Forman 450es that was my fathers. When he passed away I figured I’d put some work into it. It’s been setting a while but figured it would be a good project for me and my son  
      Just found out that the display speedometer has been discontinued and I’m having a hard time finding one on eBay  I was curious if anyone knew if any other year model would work on this bike ?

      Spent the weekend at Anthracite Outdoor Adventure area and camped at the Trailhead Campground. This campground is next to the trails so you can just ride over to the trails.
      AOAA has about 311 miles of trails on 6,500 acres of land. All kind of terrain depending on what you like.
