may need new frame :o(

Recommended Posts

Things arent looking good for my frame. The steering bearing retainer nut wont budge despite efforts made by machine shops , garages with impact wrenches, and our own efforts causing us to break a 1/2 inch breaker bar and a socket wrench. SOOOOO it appears i am goin to need a new frame. so the ebay search has started. :aargh::aargh::aargh: I have gotten discouraged beyond belief but i know my honey will help me as much as he can, i think his encouragment is dwindled as well. I was sooo excited about this quad and now it just seems it has caused me more stress than it has fun. :no: BUT when its done its gonna be my baby.

The only way to save the frame is to cut the bolt out risking ruining the threads, in which case we would be welding a new bolt in and hopin that we dont need to replace the bearing ever again, i will keep u all updated. :aargh::aargh::aargh::no::no:

Are there any machine shops, and or race car builders in your area? They should be able to help you and resolve the problem one way or another.. and or a welding and steel fabrication shop

yeah we called a few today and they say they are to busy to work on stuff like this. Also i think it will cost more to have it machined than it would to buy a frame, still weighing our options though.

Do you have a custom motor cycle shop around there ? They should be able to fix that problem. Repair cost should be cheaper to fix than replace. unless you go to OCC.

did you try heat?

Well dang I didn't think of that. ;)

Problem with this little bastard is it's location. you can't get any thing into it. Machine shops don't want to touch it because you can't get a Lathe to it. Would have loved to have had that option - but truth is it'd cost more to have a machine shop get this thing out then to ebay a new frame. Which is the route I feared we may have been going.

So I tried a last ditch effort to persuade this nut it wanted to come out and it did. But I didn't use heat this time, just a die grinder with a dremel attachment and an air hammer (what a sweet little air tool)

lol...i try to get away from it if i'm pissed off because usually when I get frustrated, I put more aggression into it and end up busting my knuckles or something.

I had to learn the hard way. Hope nothing like that happened to you lildaisyyyy :)

    • Honda 2013 420 reverse problem

      My 2013 Honda 420 occasionally won't go into reverse. I don't think it is in the transmission as it does not make a click or noise. I think it is in the lockout. Someone told me when I ride near the ocean the salt can get on something. Any ideas?

    • 1994 Kawasaki Bayou 300 ignition problem.

      I am having what I think is ignition problems. My 1994 Bayou 300 seems to flood very easy when starting. At first I thought it was a carb problem but while testing the spart I noticed that there is no spark while the engine is turning over. When you let off of the ignition swith there is one spark. But only when you let off of the ignition switch. It has a new coil, plug wire, and plug. Any ideas? I dont know if it is the ignition box, or maybe the ignition switch. Any help would be appreciated

    • Cooling Fan Problem

      1997 yamaha kodiak 400 4x4 I am not sure my cooling fan is working for my oil cooled engine.  I let it idle in my carport for close to one hour and it never came on,  I already tested the fan and it works fine , so right now I have a toggle switch that I placed on it to turn it off and on.  The thing is I am not sure how long it would actually take for the cooling fan to come on with a oil cooled engine,  so really I am not sure rather it is working are not if it takes even longer then the time I let it idle to come on.  Can someone give me an ideal about it and the best way to test it to be sure before I start buying anything?

    • Manual Gear problem 2003 Eiger 400

      The unit seems to work great except 4th gear.  When I use the foot shifter to go into 4th gear the unit makes chattering noise.  Almost as if some teeth are missing on a gear. Even though it makes this noise, it still seems to run ok in 4th.  However I always shift right away into 5th gear which works just fine.  Has anybody experienced this and found the cause and solution?

      If you look at pic closely, you can see the frame has a slight twist in it. The handle bars have been leveled and now the motor is sitting higher on the right.
      When it is sitting on all 3 wheels, the front is then lower on the right.
      What I have done is already taken in to shop and heated and pulled the majority of the bend out, however, it doesn't quite straighten.
      The down tube in front of motor looks as though it was broken by PO and welded. Should I cut this and attempt to take twist out, or do you think this is driveable the way she is?
      The difference is about an 1/8" off level at the top of steering tube with bare frame on table, but looks worse when sitting on all 3.
      Just looking for advise, before going any further.
      Thanks

This is all i know about them? I really do want to know everything there is to know about these animals! automatic trans or manual? if manual how does it work,# of gears and in what pattern? As these 2 atvs will be low profile single seat aggressive rock crawlers w roll bars and seat belts!

I really do nee all the good and bad specs,info on every aspect of these animals that can be found or is available to date:skeptic:
