Hey everyone,been dealing with quads since I was a kid,now I have a son who loves my raptor 700 and had gotten him an electric power wheel quad but it didn’t cut it for him.so for his birthday “xmas eve” I picked up a used 2002 quadmaster 50 for 500 bucks. It started and moved but needed work..
got it home drove it for a few feet and it started bogging down and would shut off.
so I stripped quad down to the frame cleaned it up as best I could without removing motor from frame.
replaced top end new head piston rings etc cheap kit off eBay along with carb that will be here today.the filter that was on carb was degraded and soaked with gas. Also new cylinder doesn’t have vacuum line so how do I block that off without getting new petcock valve?
guy said quad doesn’t take oil as it’s a closed case right then I knew the guy knew nothing about the machine. So I changed oil,was black and thick and just nasty like sludge.
suspension in rear seems good but the fronts are very stiff,any way to adjust these or should I get a new set?
also upon stripping everything down I noticed the exhaust restrictor was gone so without that do I need to update jets in new carb,old carb has original jets??
and also I’m new to cvt tranny so how would I know if it’s bad etc?
sorry for all the questions just want to make this thing safe for my 5 year old knucklehead.
added some photos of my current progress didn’t take any inbetween cleaning everything though
please any info will be appreciated.
i haven’t rebuilt a quad since 1999 when I had my blaster and my buddies had other 2 strokes I was the mechanic with no knowledge but always seemed to get things right!!
also if you notice the old head looked chipped and damaged and I’m wondering if those chips made it into motor how would I go about finding them?i would think by now they would be chewed up? I did not strain oil that I drained but might do that later when the kids are sleeping and I have time to check it without kiddo seeing!

I live in north Phoenix, Arizona. I just recently got a 1987 moto 4, YFM350ERT. Where would be a cheap place or website to get parts? I know I will need a few things. I'm looking into finding a manual for it so I can get right stuff but that seems to be difficult.
My wife & I are getting tired of 0 degree high for the day and 10' of snow for the 5 month long winter season. and are looking for a warmer place to spend the winter. We would need a place with lots of ATV trails and places to put our kayaks in and do some fishing. Shopping malls, etc are NOT even a consideration. as long as we have a gas station and food store, we're good.
we also need to have some "elbow room" without being stuff in with neighbors on all sides. to put this in perspective we live in Aroostook County, Maine which is about the size of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined, but with a total population of 70,000 or about 10 people per sq mile. so we're used to going 30+ miles without seeing anyone except a moose or maybe a bear.
another words, I want to replace the this picture
with these pics.
we would either rent a place for the winter, or buy a travel trailer / toy hauler to live in.

Hi I have a 2002 quad master 500 that will start but won’t just idle. It also seems to have a leak if some kind underneath. I’m not that good with these since I’m not a mechanic and I’m trying to sell it, so I want it to be running ok prior. Would you know what I can do to at least get it running ok to sell and what it could be leaking. Please help!
