So i have a friend at work who was recently diagnosed with a small but very manageable heart problem.  He is in good shape but doc says he shouldn't be shoveling snow or anything crazy for a while until they figure this out. So he asked me to see what i can find him to plow since he has a good size piece of property.  So i spent the last two weeks scouring the local states to find him a good atv with a plow! 

Found  him a big bear 400 4x4 with a plow for a steal!   Going to go through it good and put my touch on it and deliver it next week. 

As much fun as we have with this quad thing its just as much fun helping others out!

Horrible, simply HORRIBLE!   Are you kidding?  They look brand new, man!  Is it paint?  Wax?  Since I have no experience painting atv plastics, my only question would be how durable is it - if painted

You're a good man Frank. Pretty work, you'll make your friend very happy.

Another great find! Craigslist? I have a friend in CT who is looking for a quad with plow also, not sure if he found one. That's pretty cool how you are able to help him out. How much did you steal it for? What state did it come from?

Came from NJ, the seller was looking for way too much. Grabbed it up for $1200 It runs great and everything works. It sat for a while but the gas was turned off and carburetor ran dry. So new battery and fresh gas and it fired up like it was from the dealer. I went through the usual things and cranked it over with my mini jumper, checked compression etc. 

Im going to take a few things apart  and change the oil, make sure its in tip top shape and move it along.

So i got it up in the air and pulled the wheels off.  Pressure washed the entire bike and I'm pleased with what's underneath.  Everything looks in tact and untouched.  Brake pads are worn halfway down, all the bushings are in great condition. Not pulling the plastics off because im happy with everything so far. Going to paint the underside, new brakes, grease, oil lube and filter.   Add a few cool cosmetic details and sending it out.  Stay tuned!

Got a hell of a day in. Pulled the front and rear apart, all looked great so i greased it up, new brakes and thats a wrap on the drive train.  Blasted the axles, frame etc down to clean metal and  any and rust and  got several coats of paint on it.  Reassembled most of the drive train and shot the racks and front bumper which are hung to dry.  
Should be getting it all back together soon enough and then a custom seat cover and shes done. 
A few more pics to come! 




Zoom in on the pics and see how clean that frame and drive train came out!

So I've been on the faded plastic thing for a long time and i finally found a decent solution.  Ive been on this bike for about a week and the plastics are faded pretty bad. Im going to add my findings to the faded plastics thread but let me know what you think ?

Horrible, simply HORRIBLE!   Are you kidding?  They look brand new, man!  Is it paint?  Wax?  Since I have no experience painting atv plastics, my only question would be how durable is it - if painted, how is the paint able to stick to the plastic AND REMAIN THERE?  sanding / roughing and possibly priming the areas prior to painting likely helps with this.

your experiment looks fantastic.  and now i'm headed to the plastics posts.

just read your post - makes sense - and it'll likely work.  good test run for all.

      I have read many forum topics on this matter but have never found a similar problem. So i bought a cheap ass quad thats got all sorts of parts on it. It's a 1997(if you look the date on frame) Kawasaki KLF(Bayou) 300 EUROPEAN Model (atleast I think, since I'm from Europe), the engine is 1988 if I'm not mistaken and the CDI is 1995.-2006. ( 21119-1447, 6pin ). My problem is that I don't have spark. I would diagnose the issue but connectors from CDI to wiring harness have almost all different colors and I'm not sure if they are connected correctly (pictures below). Pickup coil is putting out around 400 ohms and is pulsing. CDI is being fed 12v by one y/r wire that is coming to connector and with 12v to one gray wire which is coming from ignition switch ( quad actually doesn't have ignition switch so I'm not sure if gray should be supplying power or not). Stator looks good cause when crancking all three yellow wires put out around 5v AC. Neutral light is also on which means the switch should be ok, if it even matters. I know it's not the ignition coil since I get no power nor any kind of pulsing to G/W wire that is coming to it ( and I even put another one on there just to check an it ended with the same result). I'm nowhere near proffesional around this type of stuff so any help would be amazing.

      1700 miles on the machine, all trail riding.   Second ride of the day and I get an overhead light, shut it down, let fan run, fan shuts off, light still on, ride back to camp, clean radiator, let machine cool for a couple hours.  Start up, head over to the campgrounds, ride for 5 minutes or less, overheat light comes back on and the machine blows the ignition fuse.  Tow it back, replace fuse, turn on key, fuse blows immediately.  I've ran all the wires, no mouse chews or rubbing, etc.     Does the KingQuad have a thermal protection system that would explain this?

      Hi i have a honda 350es 2002 4x4 (same as rancher but canadian edition). My problem is the clock and trip meter always resetting when i power off the bike. The trip meter reset to 0.0 and the clock flashing 1:00. The other function work normally gear shift, hourmeter and odometer. If i power off the bike for approx 2-5 seconds the clock and trip meter didnt reset. The battery is ok and all the fuse is ok. Can someone help me with this problem please. I found anything in my service manual.

      I have a 2007 honda rancher 420 with trans problems. When I am riding it with the motor at around half and throttle and up the gear light will start to flash and then go away for about 5 seconds and then a dash will come up where the gear is sapose to be. I have to cut the fourwheeler off and use the front brake to crank it in gear and than wait a few seconds before it will shift. It does it in all gears except reverse as far as I know. It started about 4 months ago and is getting worse everytime i ride it. Please help me figure out how to fix it or atleast what is going on so I can take it to have it fixed.
