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 have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!

      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.
