we just got rid of an 05 crf80....my honey said that it owldn't beat a 300ex...but our friend has a yz85 and that thing is NASTY! It might be pretty comparable to the 300....

but none the less, our 80 was super fun!!

the crf is four stroke..

the cr is two stroke..

the two stroke is supposed to be pretty quick.

great power/weight ratio..

just trying to see what people think of them and what they can keep up with speed wise.

the f stands for "Four" i think..as in fourstroke

so id its just RM, YZ, KX, CR then its two

if its CRF,RMZ,YZF,KXF its four.

and i hear the CR is faster than the YZ.

If you had a CRF you had a four stroke which is why you couldn't beat a 300 fourstroke.

A CR80 and a 300ex I think would be about even.

the yz 85 is a mean bike and it has very good top end power but it is a little lazy on bottom end. Trust me the yz will hall ass for a little guy!! ohyea it has (NO) problem out running the 300 ex.

      Well been lurking for a couple years, figured its time to say hey! Been riding in MN since the early 80's been on just about anything and everything with a motor. If you are from the area hit me up! Currently riding a 2018 Sportsman XP 1000, but thinking of going to a General or possibly a Maverick Trail.

      Hey there, so I’ve got a 300ex with Alba racing nerf bars and I bought a 400ex and was wondering if the nerf bars from my 300 would fit on my 400. Lmk, and thanks for your time!

      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?

      I bought this four-wheeler used for my son's birthday last week. It wasn't running when I got it but after a new battery and some tinkering it has been running for 5 days probably 8-10 hours of run time. 
      Today after 1 hour  My son wanted to wash it, I showed him how to be careful not getting water near the engine. We were careful but after we washed it and let it dry the motor starts but the transmission slips and won't really go forward.  Even if I pick the back of the four wheeler up the wheels only go forward a tiny bit. It's as if something is slipping inside.   But it worked fine right before the wash.
      Not sure what brand. I was told it was 90 cc's the VIN is attached.  Is it 90 or 110ccs?
      No air filter came with it. Using a some old stockings until I figure out what air filter to order.
      My son is so bummed so I want to get it back up to speed but also teach him how to work on it.

      I have been working on a golf cart project for the last 4 months and ran into a major problem today, I have a 98 zr 500 snowmobile engine that I am planning to run in the reverse direction. I have set the timing to the opposite side of TDC and turned the pull starter around and come to find out, that I don't get any spark when pulling on the rope. I tested the wires going to the CDI and none of them get any power so I assumed that my stator wont work in reverse. Can I run power to the CDI from a battery and make it run? If so, what wire needs the power? If I can get it running, My next step is going to be to try and make it run on HHO and still inject the 2 cycle oil to keep it from overheating and ware out too quickly.
      Has anyone ever found a way to turn a 2 stroke into a glo engine?
      Im sure there is someone out there who is smart enough to tell me how to make this work.

      I read alot of posts about owners refusing to pay $10+ for a quart of atv oil. Going to Wallys,Autozone, Pepboys, I cant find atv oil less than 10 bux. Am i looking at the wrong oil? Im talking about oil specifically made for wet clutches. I just bought mobil1 10-40 4t synthetic (didnt have semi) and itvwas 13 a quart. lucas oil semi synthetic 20-50 was $10 a quart. Honda lube is 17 a quart and 22 a quart
