I like to keep mine set up for trails. I have no problem in sand or on the track. I have a set of paddles on some extra rims, that takes care of the sand. I don't feel the need to make my quad wider like most track riders do. IMO 2 strokes are the only true sand machine. The new quads do fine but you gotta have the ring ding ding sound!:laugh:

I'm a trail guy, don't get me wrong, i love the look of the wide mx quads, and the the decked out 2-stroke sand-draggers, i just prefer trails, i have alot of fun riding trails.

Well where I am it is mostly trail riding. Track would be ok but I like the natural stuff. I love my ring ding ding sound. :sonic:

Here it's trails and ROCKS- lots and lots of em! the nearest dunes are 100 miles away. I prefer trails anyway.....

Those Dunlops that come on Raptors and many other quads are 2 ply sidewall and no competition for lava rock: I had 2 flats in one day! Fortunately the tire store was nearby. The following weekend we had XCTs on Douglas rims all around and have ridden them ever since without a single flat. Get a good skid plate too! most factory units are plastic- just not good enuf!:confused:

im at the mx track reguaraly, but most of the time its trails. i wanna race sooooo bad but the craps expensive, i can only go race when the location is within an hour and a half from my house. after i get my license and that extra cash to blow, i will most definatly pick up racing the sorcs(xc) series.

i wish i could find an mx series close to me, but most tracks only have bike races only.

not to worry my friend, if you can handle the dunes, you can handle these trails. In our soon to be released video debut Stoopidbot1, Kristin, and I will show you how carefully the trails are groomed at East Fort Rock. We even interview one of the groomers.

This riding area is open year around and since it is on both the treeline and the prairie there is a tremendous diversity of trails, soils and terrain. And yes, those damm razor sharp volcanic rocks do live here too, but they are marked on the map as [not ATV advisable] which is verrrry nice. We ride out there year around, in winter we wear snowmobile suits and start a damm good fire! Bot1 will attest that it's under 25 miles from my driveway, like Saddleback Park was 4 decades ago now.....

you'll have a ball- all the heavies do their testing here and I don't mean the damm magazines, I mean the MFRs.

Let me know when you're ready to go.

Perhaps we'll compare weather and riding conditiuons at Diamond Lake OK? I know EFR will be cool to ride, no deep snow that high and far out from the divide; we ride out there year around as do many other folks.

Down: COLD

Up: no dust and no traffic!!!

see ya soon! r8

Did I mention it is the largest dedicated riding area in the lower 48 states? it is. :yes:

I am looking forward to the ride if I can still fit in my snowsuit hahaha

heyy what about those sport quad GIRLS :) :) :)

I race my baby girl as I'm sure every single person that visits the forums knows...and I wouldn't have it any other way...for the trails, she's got enough power to keep up with the 450's...especially in tight woods....in wide open spaces they can pull away from me if they really try....and on the mx track sometimes they can be faster if the rider knows how to work them the right way...I thought about putting a 440 kit on it, butttt...don't know if I want to go that route...

I'm pretty satisfied right now with her, I'd just like the reverse that the newer models have...

Trailing all the way getting to old to handle the broke bones and pain of mx ridding. Lol still love one day to get another tri-z 250, but purely for nostalgic reasons not huge jumps any more save that stuff for the young bloods. Hahaha

      I wanted to share an experience and a fix.
      Headed out was following a pole line, was looking for a cross track that may take me to this speckle trout looking spot on a creek.  All paths and semi paths... failed.  Second objective was to reach a speckle trout lake that has been recently stocked... followed 1 trail to dead end, followed second trail to dead end.... while investigating options on foot and the quad idling it died.
       
      It wouldn't start.  eventually it did... and when it did … it was essentially a pinned idle.  activating the throttle did seem to speed it up but it wouldn't knock out of the racing idle.  couldn't put it in gear at that idle speed.  got towed out.
      when I first got the quad, I ran it off a trail and buried it pretty good in the soft snow... eventually winched out.  It wouldn't start.  eventually did and it was fast idling.  not as fast as this last time. but still fast.  it eventually seemed to settle and I got it in gear and by the time I was back to the truck was acting ok.  chalked it up to the bike being at a bad angle in the snow.
      My investigation last year lead to the throttle position sensor TPS.  how to jumper the diag block to see the sensor position on the display,.  I focused on this nearly sure it was a detuned sensor or broken sensor again this time.
       
      I tore down the front plastic and stuck my head into the TPS area to see what I could see.  What I found was that the throttle body assembly had actually come out of the mounting area (not sure what it is called).  the ring clamp was loose I could move it easily.  Hopeful, I tore down the air intake assembly above it (air filter...etc) removed a sensor clip and a hose.
      I backed off the clamp some more and was able to reseat the throttle body assembly.  put some blue lock tite on the clamp screw.  When I was cleaning off the air intake assembly to ensure I dropped nothing down the intake, I noticed the underside of the air intake "box" also had a clamp.  this screw was completely missing.
      I went to the hardware store, bought a metric replacement (brought clamp with me), seated the assembly, settled the clamp blue lock tite that as well... 
       
      quad fired right up, idled normal, idled up without hesitation and dropped right back off.  Cost of solution $3.87 CND for a pack of 5 metric screws.  moral of my story was don't assume an idle issue is a throttle position sensor problem... there are a number of other factors including air pressure, which I believe was my issue.

      Im new to the forum and the quad I just got. I want to change oil in in. Its almost impossible to find anything on-line. I know it takes 10w40 and know the oil filter location. What oil should I use? Is there a cross reference for oil filter. The closest dealer to me is an hour away. I have NAPA close and like the WIX or Napa gold filters. Also is where can I get a Manuel for it? Thanks

      About 6 months ago I had a new fuel pump, ECM, stator and heaven only knows what else installed on my 05 King Quad.  It has been running great until the other day when I went to get it off the trailer, and it would not start.  Pulled the plug, and it was a little dirty, but not bad, but I put a new one in just for good measure.  Still would not start.  Pulled the fuel line connector underneath and turned on the switch and fuel was coming out, but with little to no pressure.  I turned the switch off and on multiple times to fill up a water bottle with fuel, and the fuel was good.  As it turns out, the fuel pump is out of warranty (go figure).  So, I'm going to put a pressure gauge on it tomorrow and see what it is pumping.  Is there anything else I can check?
      Many thanks,

      I have a 2000 Suzuki LTF -300 King Quad. My problem is it will start up great, very fast. It will run fine until it gets hot and I turn it off.  If I let it sit for a bit it will not start until I hold the throttle wide open and crank on the starter for quite some timr, acting has if flooded.....but I checked the spark plug one time this happened, went to change thinking it was flooded but only found a dry Plug????  It starts like if flooded but plug was dry, it takes awhile to start, then to get going I have to really rev it to get it clear and going...Thanks any suggestions would be great, thanks everybody in advance...!!!

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?

      Feul pump went out. Replaced. At times quad cuts out like its not getting gas. Saw article on new pump needs to be calibrated. Told how to go into a service mode. Does not tell how to calibrate after going into mode. Can anyone shed light on this procedure.

      I recently picked up a king quad 700 that doesn't run in the hopes of getting it running by spring. It had been previously taken apart some and a few pieces are missing in the engine, but the frame is complete and in good condition. The motor will need a piston, rings, cylinder, cams, and a few misc parts that are missing. Also the cases will need to be split to remove the pieces of piston that are in the crankcase. The piston blew up at high rpm and did a number on the cylinder so I'm trying to find out if it would be worth rebuilding this motor it buying another engine to swap in. There may be more damage to this engine that I can see so I was wondering how bad the insides of it could be considering it destroyed the piston. I have found a motor for 1200 plus 200 shipping, the only problem is I don't have that much now and I would have to save up a while before being able to afford it. Any suggestions appreciated.
