06 kfx 400 lies.

Recommended Posts

So I traded my worked banshee for a supposed to be kfx400 with a 440 kit and hot cams with yoshimura pipe. Well I overlooked it now and came to the conclusion that it's a stock quad with a pipe. How do I know you ask?


The cylinder jug has 2 bars on it and every other has 3 for the big bore.


He only jetted the carb not buy the new one that's supposed to be bigger.


The cams are stock. After pulling the cover off.


And it's slower than the banshee.


Now that's why I won't believe anything this kid says. Shit. He doesn't even know how to mix oil to gas. Has no clue how 2 strokes even work. Can't figure out how to jet for temp changes.


But I guess I'll be happy with what I have.


The point is. Don't trust people when buying bikes.

It’s always a risk when buying from another person.  I always bring a few tools along to open up a few things on the bikes I buy if they allow it and why shouldn’t they if there’s nothing to hide? A wire brush to clean a vin# so you can do a quick run on it to verify year model etc. But karma is a bitch! What goes around comes around! 

Better off anyway bc if he can’t jet a carb then you sure as shit don’t want him banging out cams!!!!

Yeah no kidding. At least I know what I'm doing with machines. If something breaks then it's a clean platform and I know what's done. I gave this kid all the papers for the banshee build. All the way down to the torque specs. But he has his hands full. He doesn't even know about simple things. Like what oils to use or how to adjust the clutch. He is clueless.

Karma sucks for him. He texts me all the time asking questions. I tell him to figure it out. I can't hold his hand. That's now his quad. LEARN IT.

      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?

      Hey Guys/Gals
      going into my second year on new quad , my kodiak is everything and more then expected ; wife loves hers as well. We got the 450 and 700 ... made sales guy smile when we ordered two ... the question i have is the tires , i have heard many say aftermarkets are just much better , iwe use our machines in woods ,and trails and we do ride in snow, with that i think my stock tires suck.  The have plenty of tread left but i just think i could be happier with better tires ........id love comments and input

      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?
