So I have my very first Atc still. My dad gave it to me when I was very little (was brand new; one owner bike), and it has needed just two repairs over the approximately three decades: replace/repair pull-start. 

Any ideas of some simple & not so simple mods/upgrades for this classic? I'd LOVE to swap the tranny for one with a real clutch, personally...possible??

That’s a great bike but honestly a bike like that I would leave as is.  Maybe at best is a new set of some good tires. If you start messing with mods to a bike like that I think it won’t react very well and could open up a can of worms.

Those little tri zingers are worth a grip and lose value as you mod them. I would think routine maintenance such as carb refresh and so on would be the extend if what I'd do to it.  I've looked for a decent one for a while and there just aren't any here. The few that have survived are usually trashed.

None, I think you misunderstood my posts. I would leave it be.  These bikes are not a “mod” type bike.  The trike racers came with a clutch and we’re more friendly  to modding.  

Sounds like yours is more of a trail bike. If so I would try my best to keep it in as best shape possible and in tact and stock.  These bikes are getting tougher to find in that condition.

I gotcha now. I'd only seen one reply...but I finally saw and read them all! 

Thats crazy that these are becoming hard to find (to me), bcuz they are great bikes for a kids first bike (at least I thought so. Yes this bike of mine was a gift to me when I was in probably kindergarten. I have keep it all these years. And at no point in time has it ever stopped running. Its just solid and reliable, and is pretty low maintainable.  I also think that it's looks are aging well. It has kept its "new" appearance well. In other words, it doesn't look dated as it's peers. I know that's not the most important thing to look for in a bike, but it matters. And not every bike can pull that off. Lol

I'm not trying to get rid of my little bike any time soon, but when/if that day ever comes, what do u think a good asking price would be? My bike has had one owner, never wrecked it, original everything & it's been kept in a shed, garage, or the living room since I first got it in 1987. It's in wonderful condition, honestly. Has no problems at all & has not once been broken down. Its a solid child's ATC.  I'm not at home right now, but I'll upload a picture of it later on, when I am.

      Friends, being the owner of a far from new ATV, I often come across a search for various owner's manuals, service guides, parts manuals, etc. It is not easy to find suitable documents for every quad. Therefore, I present to your attention a website that contains various instructions for ATVs from well-known manufacturers: https://www.ATVownersmanual.com
      Currently only 3 manufacturers are represented here: Can-Am, Polaris, Yamaha - and only about 1200 instructions for various models. Little later other brands and missing instructions will be added.
      What will be convenient for you: all documents are in PDF format. If necessary, you can download them to your computer and use offline. The documents are structured by brand, year and model. There is no advertising (yet).
      I am happy to hear criticism and recommendations. If you have missing or rare instructions, send them to PM or to the website's email: info [...at...] atvownersmanual [...dot...] com.

      I've been riding Suzuki Kingquad 300's for the last 20 years. I have 3 of them. I love the low gearing, low center of gravity, low rider position, low racks shaft drive and smooth ride, but they are getting old and I'm tired of fixing them. Best engineering of any utility quad, IMO, but the execution...build quality is not up to par with Honda, so the price you pay is lots of wrenching.
      I positively despise CVT type belt drives. My neighbor has a couple of old Hondas, Rancher and Rubicon and I admire the reliability of them. He does very little maintenance and they always run and have pulled my Kingquads home for me when they break.
      Is Honda the only company that makes ATV's that don't have CVT? I like the build quality but I don't like the high rider position caused by the vertical cylinder, the cold nature of them, having to warm up for several minutes and the plastic skid plates. I guess all modern ATV's have the same issues, though (correct me if I'm wrong).
      Been checking with the dealers, it seems Honda foot shift models are scarce. I really don't need devices/gadgets to decide which gear I need to be in. So I'm avoiding the DCT models. I must have IRS and EPS because of my age and physical condition though.
      Is it possible to get a Rancher with IRS, EPS and foot shift? The specs I'm reading show the rancher is 2" lower than the Rubicon. I'm assuming that to be seat height. With vertical cylinder design, the more you grow the engine, the higher you push the seat....at least that's my thinking.
      Any comments from the Honda experienced?

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?
