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:

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 bought an 07 honda trx400ex for my daughter 11th birthday. I've been having alot of fun fixing it up but after reading some of the posts about safety I think I may have gotten a little carried away. I put an exhaust on that added 10hp, a k&n performance filter, new carb, a stage 3 rev box and coil, and I wrapped the exhaust. The top speed started out at 92mph and we're well above that now. My main concern, though, is low end throttle. Is there any way I can do something thate will decrease the rate of acceleration without taking off the modifications I've done? She's super cautious and won't go over 10mph but I'm worried that she may have a hard time controlling it after these last few upgrades.

      I just got a 2007 Honda trx400ex and I'm looking for places to ride. Is there any website that gives a list of areas where atvs are allowed?

      I have a 2003 Kodiak 450 that i purchased a while back with around 300 hours on it. It has never ran right from the beginning. Initially i thought it was just a carburetor issue because it was all clogged up from sitting for months. It has been cleaned, rebuilt, and taken off probably about 10 times troubleshooting this problem. I have quadruple checked everything including float height ect and it is set correctly, the jets are also brand new, needle and seat have been pressure tested as well. So after all of that I am convinced that the carburetor is not the culprit. I have an issue where the idle is very choppy, almost as if it is misfiring with a rich condition on top of that. I can use a brand new plug and run the machine for just a few minutes and it will be a dry and and coated in black carbon build up. The exhaust also has a strong smell at idle. I had trouble restarting it when hot for a while, but i adjusted the valves and it seemed to solve that issue. They were both way out of tolerance (tight). The weird thing is, outside of idle it seems to run pretty well. 
      So with all that being said I have ruled out the carb/valves/compression and moved on to the ignition and this is where i have a few questions about factory specifications. I guess the main question I have is, how strict are these tolerances? And could them being off by this amount cause the issue I am having? Do all three of these parts really need to be replaced? I would like to know before I spend the money on these new parts, and it not fix my problem. Below I will list what the specs were in the service manual along with the reading i got.  This is my first experience testing ignition components. I just found it odd that all 3 are out of spec according to the service manual.
      Spark plug cap resistance: 10 kΩ at 20 °C (68 °F)
      My Reading: 8.90 kΩ
      Primary coil resistance: 0.18 ~ 0.28 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F)
      My Reading: Fluctuated between 0.4 - 0.5 Ω
      Secondary coil resistance: 6.32 ~ 9.48 kΩ at 20 °C (68 °F)
      Reading was within the specified range.
      Pickup coil resistance: 459 ~ 561 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F)
      Reading was within specified range.
      Rotor rotation direction sensing coil resistance: 0.085 ~ 0.105 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F) 
      My reading was 0.3 Ω
