It was bone dry when I got it. I put a little fuel in it and the filter leaked. So I changed that. And all the lines.

Great progress on the bike.What are you using on the plastics? 

As far as the seat cover goes you can make your own out of some fabric with a T 50 staple gun and scotch guard water repellent spray.   It takes literally 30 mins to do and looks amazing.  

Sounds like your having fun. Keep up the good work.

I havnt had a bike with bad looking plastics so far, but I'm interested in how you did that too..  Improves the look soo much- went from a bike I wouldnt want to a bike I'd pay some $$$ for.

Well I cleaned it up with soap and water first,then at Home Depot I got me some Boiled Linseed oil(has to be Boiled) Paint Thinner and some rags and a brush with strong bristles,since the Bike was left outside for I don't know how long, but it was bad,I washed it first,take all the dirt, grime off,then I mixed Both my chemicals Thinner and Boiled Linseed oil and brushed away hard,then,I did this because its for me,I lightly scraped it with a blade made for window scraping,but its very light though,then lastly I may go with the Heat gun,or maybe I'll polish it, don't know yet,but just so you know its not finished yet,I will post the finished product,and its gonna be EPIC!!!! I'm gonna have those plastics SHINY!!!! Then it'll be time for the YAMAHA RAPTOR 660R!!!! to get the plastic done!!!! This is just me doing this like this,people usually just do the Paint Thinner and Boiled Linseed oil and thats it,Im just a perfectionist,cant do half ass crap... My Father's Words "Son if YOU!!! are going to do Something do it Right or Don't do it at ALL!!! Or Let Someone else Do it" that was my Father's sayings....

Lol well said.  Looks great.  I have to say as much as I have worked to buy, sell, upgrade and buy the bikes I wanted with the money I made I am always looking for a new project. It’s a lot of fun.

paint thinner?  that would put me off thinking it would eat the plastics- but I guess thats kinda the goal here.

you could probably use brake fluid too- that stuff eats the finish off everything haha

I’ve seen a ton of posts about that paint thinner and linseed oil on YouTube.  I hear good things for short term.  I hear it does not last long.

That's why i scraped it lightly and then i may use the heat gun or I may polish it,dont know yet..... but you're absolutely right, I watched a bunch of videos on that Paint Thinner/Linseed oil thing and it's kinda weak,and don't last long, but it does wash off alot of the grime and white powdery stuff.....

      Well I came on here hoping to read a manual about the quad but found that I have to make some posts before that can happen, so here is one. 
      I work on peoples stuff. Had this well used unit come to me with a no start issue. I found it had fuel  and spark was good but it only had 30 pounds of compression. I put each cylinder to TDC and feed the plug hole with a small amount of air pressure and could hear the escaping air coming out the carb openings. I then checked the valves lash at TDC and found that booth cylinders had 0 lash for the intake valves. I reset the lash to .003 for all the intake valves and reapplied a small amount of air pressure and the leaking of air was gone. I then spent a few hours screwing all the parts I had to take off, back together and then drove it out of the shop.
      The lash was only 1/4- 1/2 a turn too tight that caused the valve to stay open just enough to make it not start. IMO the heads could use an overhaul some time soon as the valves and seats have become a bit warn.
      These ATV's just have too much crap stuffed into a small space, I wounder how many fasteners are used to hold 1 ATV together?

      I replaced the main , pilot and starter jets and it will not start , it wants to try and start , this is a fuel issue I think , what part of the carburetor might be plugged up if it will not start , any ideas

      Hi all, bike does start with the electric start mostly, but the battery was weak and wouldnt start it the other day so went to use the pull start, to say its hard is an understatement first of all you gotta do a little jiggling about til it catches then pulling it takes some effort now i know im not the strongest fella in the world but this is so much harder than it should be. 
      It does start of the pull just to get the engine to initailly turn is so hard any ideas why its happening or how to fix this,
      Thanks
