Hi, I'm Mike from Nashville, TN. Just picked up a 2001 Yamaha Blaster 200 and this thing is a blast to ride! just wanted to drop in and say hey. One issue i have run into is the pads need to be changed. What is a good performance company to get pads from?

Thanks!!

Hi Mike!!!! I live in Old Hickory right now...but tomorrow my husband and I are moving back to NY :) Wish we coulda got to know each other sooner....maybe catch a trail together or something..

but if you're looking for brake pads...DP or EBC brake pads are great...if you're not looking to spend a whole lot, you can snag the Tusk brand off of Rocky Mountain, which are just as good in my opinion, just a newer brand...you can find Tusk and EBC here:

Brakes | Brakes | Rocky Mountain ATV/MC

Hope that helps :)

Thanks on the brake info!!

I'm really looking for places to trail ride. A friend and myself have made about a miles worth of trails in the woods in the back of his house, but of course we get used to them. If you know of any good places to go let me know.

Thanks again for the info!

Are you just getting into riding?? They have a great harescrambles racing series here, it's called Mid-South and you can visit the website here:

MSHSS, Inc. Cross Country Motorsports Racing

We raced that series here, had a blast...sometimes the promoters for the races will let people ride their land as long as they sign a waiver....I've heard Summertown's ok for riding, more for like jeeps and that kind of stuff though...when it re-opens, Wooly's Offroad's a good place to go for trails....Don't waste your time going to Honda Hills, it's close and all, but unless they do some work on their mini motocross track and in their trails, it's not really worth the drive out there.

Hope all of that helps.

thanks everyone for your replies! This is the first Quad I've owned. I've been riding my friend's Honda 300ex for a while though, and alse the slow but reliable Honda ATC90! I do love adding aftermarket parts to things especially if it has an engine, so any help with that would be awesome too.

Thanks!

Welcome mike, There are tons of aftermarket part out there. What do you want to do first? I recommend starting with exhaust.

Welcome Mike! I am in Hendersonville. We ride mostly at Wooly's Offroad but it is closed right now for environmental repairs. Glad to see a neighbor on Quad Crazy. Rocky Mountain ATV has brake pads and great prices. I have alway been happy with them.

I've never heard anything bad. In my eyes no news is good news. People don't really speak of the good stuff, just the bad.

Hi mikenacarato, Welcome to QUADCRAZY!

If There Is Anyone Who Can Recommend A Yamaha Atv For A 300 Lb. Male That Loves To Go Fast On The Trails

Welcome JEFFWOODSMAN! I would look at anything over 660 CC...maybe in the 700 - 750 range. Kawasaki Brute Force, Suzuki King Quad, Yamaha Grizzly...

Jeff I would go with something 500cc and up. I guess it depends on if you want a utility or sport quad.

:yes:+1 on the Brute Force....It is an amazing machine since it went EFI....It will carry a 300 lb man and keep his mind strung out on the edge of sanity:yes:I should know, we have a 2008 and you have to have your mind right before you ever fire it up. If your gonna go fast when you start it up, you better be ready. If you want to putt putt around with the family, it will do that too...again...+1 on the Brute Force

      I have a Yamaha Big Bear 350 and the reverse doesn’t work, it shifts from low to high easily but it won’t go back to reverse. I’m new to this stuff, so I’ll take any help. Any ideas?

      The VIN on my 2018 Kodiak 450 is not where it's supposed to be. I bought this used. Is there another "hidden" location where I can find it? Need the number for insurance co. Thanks in advance.

      Hi there i was needing to ask a question. I may soon be getting a UTV of one sort or another and not sure what is good or better to avoid?  So far i hear great things about the Arctic Cat Prowler and Havoc, and many speak well of the Kawasaki Mule all but the 610?  
       
       So what are your thoughts and especially experiences?  What have you had and used in farm life and trail riding that has held up well or hasn't?

      I picked up a 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2X4 a week or so back in non running condition, apparently they said it needed a new carburetor or a battery, I cleaned the carburetor thoroughly and got it running on idle and without choke now and it shifts into all the gears even into reverse. Aside from making me bounce a little when trying to start out with a bit of throttle the shock suffice to say needs work. Anyways I made a video of it running and would like your opinions on it, as to how it sounds while running. It seems like it has a little whine I'm not sure why that is maybe someone can tell me what it is. Anyways here is the video.

      Hello, 
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Bear Tracker in the shop for repair. I have the service manual but it doesn't have all the information I need to fix the problem. I need to know the voltage output of the stator charge coil and pulse or trigger coil at cranking speed. The wiring diagram color code doesn't seem to match and that is compounded by the fact that the wiring harness CDI connector is missing so I have 7 wires that need to be connected to the CDI. I can not find a circuit diagram of the CDI which tells me where the pulse/trigger coil connects or the charge coil connects. The other 3 wires (black ground, orange ignition coil, and r/b ignition kill sw) also need to be connected. The CDI has a single 8 pin connector and has a P/N 4XE-00 F8T19871 -1122 number on it and I believe it to be OEM. However I think the Stator and pulse coil are aftermarket items. I have resistance tested everything and it all seems to be in spec. but I don't want to miss wire anything and cause damage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
