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.

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:

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!

      Hello! I picked up a YFM400 and I would love to talk shop with knowledgeable co-owners, and I'd love input about the machine from anyone here who clearly knows more than I do! Cheers from NY

      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?
