Well I will be Off the Trails for awhile...who will be riding ??

I said awhile ago that we would be done for awhile,and we made it back out,but now I know we are off for at least two weekends,Wife is on Call.

and I might send mine out for some due repairs,that I do not want to do because of the timing,and that I have not done them before.

I need new brakes,front and rear!

and A Chain and Gears.

Deer Season is Nov.15th thru Nov.29th so no riding during that.

And we need to clean the Garages to get the daily drivers out of the snow,and cold weather.

So I hope that others step up and get in some riding while we are down.

Catskills NY, I ride mainly my rancher 420. Honda of course !! I have a few other machines to ride as well since I buy, fix and sell atv’s but my personal machine is my rancher.  My son has a 350 rancher as well. 

First pics are up in the Catskills. 

That’s me, my son and my buddy  @06kfx440 (far right) and his pal out at lost trails PA.

I have 2. A polaris xplorer 400 4x4. And a kfx 400 2wd. My buddy has a bombardier 500 and his son has a trail blazer 300. My son rides a 90 and my other kid has a kx80. We get out when we can. But come along. I know I’ll be better prepared this time. Lol

I've been so busy lately but coordinated with my neighbor to go do some riding by us on the Wednesday before thanksgiving, in a few weeks. So looking forward to that. Just ordered some EBC front brake pads for my grizzly I need to install before then. My riding has been mostly around my property doing landscaping these past few months. Almost done.

Always something to do !! I hear you @Ajmboy ! 
I’ve been lucky lately to get some good riding time in with this new property.  But with the rifle season about to open I need to stay off it for a while with the machines to let the deer settle down.  
It’s been a lot of set up and then riding time  but this is the last weekend we are going up with the bikes to add one more stand and that’s it for a while with the bikes.

Yes big thing ! Especially on state land, hikers are constantly out there and rightfully so. Problem is hunters hear the leaves crackling like a potato chip factory and they take aim in that direction. Scary stuff, even avid atv riders are out there riding and have no clue it’s hunting. So state land riders should be made aware.

      Hello I’m new here and was wondering is anyone knew of good replacement part numbers for front struts and rear shocks for this atv? I think I’ve found a new rear shock, that looks like the original but there is no dimensions or anything and was wondering if there are any afterMarket new front struts available. I know it’s a long shot but any help would be appreciated.

      Hi everyone. 
      Let me explain the thread title. 
      My husband and I are very active in the nudist community, and we have stayed at many and most of the mainstream nudist and clothing optional campgrounds in the USA. We are now approaching our retirement and would like to start a podcast to share those off the road / backwoods / little known camping areas where nudity is allowed. We have purchased a 5th wheel camping trailer with a rear garage for the ATV and now need some good reports on the one to buy. 
      We are most interested in a side by side unit but would love to get your thoughts. 
      Feel free to stop by and say Hi and ask anything you would like to better understand what we are looking for in an offroad unit. 
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you.

      My friends KQ 300 starts fine and runs, as soon as you put it in gear and try to accelerate its bucks and farts like crazy, not moving... I cleaned carb and it worked good for 1 day... now back to same problem.... could it be such as a bent valve????

      Hello everyone, I just picked up an 02 LT-F250F the other day and have been in the process of tearing it down to fix some stuff- one of which was the cylinder base gasket leaking like a sieve. Well, I know why that is now, and I also discovered that someone had been in there before. I didn't take pictures, but it looks like it was probably run low on oil at some point, the cam journals and the "bearings" (for lack of a better term) in the head and the valve cover are totally wiped out, very deep grooves.  From what I know it's very difficult to repair aluminum in this way, so I'm trying to figure out where to go next.
       
      1. Have someone grind down the head and valve cover and fit actual bearings in since the aluminum is screwed, and have the cam ground down to match.  I have no idea what this would cost.
      2. Buy a replacement head+cam+valve cover.
       
      #1 I was hoping someone might have some advice on, but #2 seems like it'll (probably) be the more cost effective option.  However I'm running into some difficulty, it seems like the 2001 and 2002 models specifically use a different head part number,  11100-19B10, instead of  11100-19B01 like for all earlier models.  What exactly is the difference between them? There are obviously far more of the earlier heads because it ran for over 10 years.  Are they actually interchangeable? I've also noticed there are heads from the LT250EF that has 4 valve heads but also otherwise look identical.  Would those work as well possibly?  I'd like to not have to drop $500 on machine work or new heads on a $1300 quad that I'm already putting a bunch of new parts on.  Oh, and it has a new piston and the cylinder itself looks pretty good too, as I said someone was in here before me.
       
      Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I'll post pics of the carnage tomorrow.

      Bucking started about a month ago and works ok after 1/2 hour warmup.  Today while working on it i discovered that if i put the ignition switch in LIGHT position it runs fine right from the start.
      I'm stumped!  Any idea why this could be?
