Tis the season

Recommended Posts

So it has started to get alot warmer out. For those of us that don't get to ride year round, we're whiping the dust off our toys. It's beginning to look alot like riding season, it's also beginning to look alot like thieving season. Every year countless people get thier atvs stolen. Don't be left with that empty, disgusted feeling. Take the extra couple minutes to puts good locks on your stuff. There are endless options of locks available, you can find one that will work for your needs and leave a thief unable to cut it. Be sure you put a lock on the tounge of your trailer. The big thing here in Colorado is for campers to go out in the morning and find their toys missing. Find a way thaat works for you to lock up everything.

Good thread, it really is the season!

Make sure you take lots of photos of your machine just in case you need to show it to the authorities.

Some other solutions I've seen are here:

Please people, protect your stuff. I'm seeing way to many people being ripped off. I know I like to think it is true but it is not. I would love to be able to leave my toys outside of my tent or what ever and think everyone is honest. The people I meet riding are some of the greatest people I have ever met. I just wish everyone was honest.

yeah no kidden. a couple years ago we left to go on a vacation weekend to another state, and we got a phone call that my husbands wheeler was stolen......we freaked..

the culprit?? his flippin 15 year old cousin. he decided to take it trail riding, got it stuck in a huge mudhole and didnt bother to tell anyone cause he didnt want to get in trouble. the cops didnt like that story too much.

You are right, it would be nice to be able to trust everyone. I do take the time to lock up the quads and rhino. I lock them to the trailer frame, right outside my window. You can't even leave out your chairs! I do believe that most of our fellow riders are good people, it is just a few that make it bad.

Now that I have a toy hauler with a gas station I don't bring cans. I turn the power off from the inside and lock the fuel door. To fuel the truck and the tank on the trailer its $200.00 before I leave town!:aargh:

    • Rebuilding 2002 Suzuki Quad Master 50 2-stroke

      Hey everyone,been dealing with quads since I was a kid,now I have a son who loves my raptor 700 and had gotten him an electric power wheel quad but it didn’t cut it for him.so for his birthday “xmas eve” I picked up a used 2002 quadmaster 50 for 500 bucks. It started and moved but needed work.. got it home drove it for a few feet and it started bogging down and would shut off. so I stripped quad down to the frame cleaned it up as best I could without removing motor from frame. replaced top end new head piston rings etc cheap kit off eBay along with carb that will be here today.the filter that was on carb was degraded and soaked with gas. Also new cylinder doesn’t have vacuum line so how do I block that off without getting new petcock valve? tightened chain. guy said quad doesn’t take oil as it’s a closed case right then I knew the guy knew nothing about the machine. So I changed oil,was black and thick and just nasty like sludge. suspension in rear seems good but the fronts are very stiff,any way to adjust these or should I get a new set? also upon stripping everything down I noticed the exhaust restrictor was gone so without that do I need to update jets in new carb,old carb has original jets?? and also I’m new to cvt tranny so how would I know if it’s bad etc? sorry for all the questions just want to make this thing safe for my 5 year old knucklehead. added some photos of my current progress didn’t take any inbetween cleaning everything though    please any info will be appreciated. i haven’t rebuilt a quad since 1999 when I had my blaster and my buddies had other 2 strokes I was the mechanic with no knowledge but always seemed to get things right!! also if you notice the old head looked chipped and damaged and I’m wondering if those chips made it into motor how would I go about finding them?i would think by now they would be chewed up? I did not strain oil that I drained but might do that later when the kids are sleeping and I have time to check it without kiddo seeing!

    • 2005 Suzuki King Quad 700 - Fan Replacement

      The saga of the fan continues. The Pin attempt in the fan shaft failed.  I then moved on to trying to weld the fan hub to the fan shaft.  I took it for a run the weld broke.  Now it was truly F'ed.  To recap the dealer price, they want $400 + CND for a replacement fan assembly. I searched all sorts of after market places and no one carried one.  Ebay had some used ones but they were $120 USD + Conversion rate for something as old as what I have.  I went to Amazon and eventually settled on this.   amazon link   What I found... and was amazed... was that the fan mounted to the Suzuki fan assembly bracket.  I was prepared to manufacture my own mount conversions...  It also came with "Harpoon mounts" (nylon zip tie like things that go straight through the rad.   Anyways it mounted to the original bracket. It fit perfectly.  Cut the electrical plug off replaced it with the Suzuki... all good.  Let the quad heat up, thermo coupler kicked in the fan circuit, polarity was right... all was good....  Fan is under the circuit fuse rating.     so I finally have a solid fan solution.  $34 CND vs $400+ CND

    • By Wonderwoman
      Hello all, hope someone can help me out. Just did an overhaul on this 500 TIS and I still have a carb issue. This is one of those carbs with two additional rubber diaphs in it. When ridding in H it seems to be starving for gas and quits all the time. When ridding in L it works better until you really need some power then same thing, starving for gas. I have all the settings per the manual. Can anyone give me a clue as to where I may need to make an adjustment?
