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. Sh**. 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 bi***! What goes around comes around! 

Better off anyway bc if he can’t jet a carb then you sure as sh** 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.

      My king quad 700 runs rough when cold then won't start some times but not often when it's hot. And occasionally smoke's a lot when it's cold I'm guessing that's rings but I'm worried unless it's causing the other problems
      All help is appreciated thanks

      My friends KQ 300 starts fine and runs, as soon as you put it in gear and try to accelerate its bucks and farts like crazy, not moving... I cleaned carb and it worked good for 1 day... now back to same problem.... could it be such as a bent valve????

      Bucking started about a month ago and works ok after 1/2 hour warmup.  Today while working on it i discovered that if i put the ignition switch in LIGHT position it runs fine right from the start.
      I'm stumped!  Any idea why this could be?

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.

      Hi, I have been around everything with a motor since I was little, and finally purchased more to get my husband, and kids involved. I have 4 quads I will be searching around for information on. I have two 2002 Suzuki LT80K quads, a 1997 Yamaha Timberwolf 250, and a 1996 Kawasaki Bayou 220. I have had different ones throughout the years, and plan on buying another Yamaha Banshee. I plan on trying to learn more about all of them, so I can customize some of them. I know nothing about them besides how to race them, my dad always took care of the rest, but figured it was time for me to learn.
