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.

      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?

      So yesterday I picked up a 07 polaris sportsman 800efi stealth edition for 3k.  Will lead a pic ltr.  In good shape.  Here's what's wrong with it:
      The rpm needle doesn't work just like my other sportsman... not too worried ab that.
      The motor doesn't sound like it's running quite right and doesn't feel like it has much more power than my 500.  I'm thinking it needs a tune up and some fresh oil..  but also it feels like it's running rich.  It's a little buggy when you goose the throttle and sometimes farts when you let off (like I little backfire out the exhuast). I'm gonna check timing and valave clearence on the motor first but thinking of putting a tuner on it? Anybody got a suggestion?  Mainly looking for more power.

      Hello everyone, back from a crazy few months of riding, hunting and fishing! So I’ve added a storage bag to one of my bikes and loaded it up pretty good before we went out into the woods/trails etc.  My son questioned me and said what do we need all that junk for?  I told him you never know  maybe a flat tire water etc.
      Needless to say that junk came in handy.   So my question to everyone that hits the trails is what do you have or recommend to maybe take with you before you go? And what would be the one most important thing that’s a must have? 
      And also any recommendations on a  storage bag that’s not so costly and performs the best? I like my bag but not very good .
