So the saga with the quad continues, for those who dont know I have a 1997 yamaha warrior that is a project quad. Me and my man are takin it apart and redoin stuff. The steering bearing retainer is locked on and we cant get the old bearing out, we have again tried everything from lubing , heat, cranking on it, to breakin a socket wrench tryin to get this thing off. Normally these nuts are supposed to be easy, any one have ne other suggestions on what to try???:aargh:

What kind of heat? Are you getting it RED HOT?

Are you using propane, map gas? Get that thing RED HOT if you can. You may need to replace any seals afterwards though.

Not sure how it is on other quads, on Yamahas, the bearing drops in and then you thread a retaining nut into the shaft, the shaft is threaded. It is real low torque and comes out with a 29mm Allen wrench. Then the bearing will pull right out of the top.

The issue is the retaining nut has snapped a 1/2" Ratchet which had a 4' breaker bar on it. This sucker is in there. Heating it to red hot then muscling it may just bend the bracket and not break it free.

won't be able to snap pics till later. I just brought it to a garage that the company I work for owns and I put 600lbs worth of impact power on it. Didn't budge. Went both ways.

They didn't have the time to put the torch to it. My little propane torch doesn't heat it enough I think.

We actually bought some gaskette remover stuff today. We heard on another forum that its worth a try to get that bolt out. That stuff takes rust off like you woudnt believe. We are soaking it in pb blaster tonight and then the gaskette stuff tomorrow night and we will try to pull it again after soaking it. My honey broke a breaker bar tonight thathe just bought tryin to get the damn thing off. :aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh::aargh:

      So i have a friend at work who was recently diagnosed with a small but very manageable heart problem.  He is in good shape but doc says he shouldn't be shoveling snow or anything crazy for a while until they figure this out. So he asked me to see what i can find him to plow since he has a good size piece of property.  So i spent the last two weeks scouring the local states to find him a good atv with a plow! 
       
      Found  him a big bear 400 4x4 with a plow for a steal!   Going to go through it good and put my touch on it and deliver it next week. 
       
      As much fun as we have with this quad thing its just as much fun helping others out!

      Picked this beauty up for zero dollars this weekend. It has been passed around several of my son's friends and the last kid was just tired of tinkering with it.  Mostly complete 96 300FW. The pic is my boy robbing the swing arm and rear diff for his 300 for a big memorial weekend ride. Wiring is garbage at the battery, kick start doesnt work, no coil, smoked like cheech and chong when it ran last. I figure a couple hundred and a few hours and this will be ready to ride. Journey will be documented on Instagram at @martincyclellc if ya wanna follow along.

      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? 
      Bike not charging and magneto checks out ok

      Looking for advice on what to try next I bought this quad and it’s has spark and fuel but won’t stay running only fires when I hold the starter button in even when spraying gas into the carb it still dies right away oil was milky white so I was thinking it maybe went under water 150 psi compression so I might be wrong but not a head gasket I am stuck Cause it should stay running with the straight gas through the carb so what should I try

      Hello boys and girls!:howdy:I need a little help if ya dont mind.I need to replace the rear axle bearings on my 400 but Im going at this blind having never done it before. Ive looked it up in the repair manual but it doesn't give any specific steps on how to do it. I've got the left rear brakes off already as I was replacing the shoes anyway. Can somebody give me a rundown on what Ive gotta do please?I know I need to pull the right wheel off just havent done that yet. Do I need to take anything apart in the final drive or elsewhere in order to yank the axle out for instance? Which side does the axle come out from,L or R? Any details I need to know will be greatly appreciated.Thanks ya'll!

      Just got back from a 3 day hunting trip over nasty terrain. Last day did a 53 mile round trip and the return with Caribou meat. The steering bump on these is pretty bad. Came home with bruises on my palms.
      Anyone know of a good steering stabilizer device? I`m looking at the one in the link. Seems awesome, but the price!

      My friend has 2007 Honda TRX680FA Rincon. He wants to know if there is a power steering mod available for this? I don`t see anything in the service manual indicating it might have been a stock option.
