Im considering a new quad..pretty much any 450..I'd love a KTM 450 but the price drives me away..does anyone know how low a dealer would most commonly go on one of these bikes? (ktm 450 atv)..

2nd question is..could one use a streetbike helmet (full face) to ride atvs? I cant see why not..and It would feel more conveniant for me.

ktm's are too much.. they are nice but are having problems... (so i have heard) as far as a street bike helmet goes you should be good to go but if you ride mud your screen is going to get nice and dirty and scratched up..

i would go with the yfz or the honda out of any of the 450.. both are proven to be great 450's..

I would seriously consider getting a MX helmet over a Street bike helmet.....they are rated different for different type of impacts.....Most Street bike helmets are not made to take a direct hit on the dirt....they are made to take punishment from sliding across pavement but I am sure one would be better than nothing.

There was just a good article on helmets in Quad Magazine explaining on how they are rated :wink:

Yup..I have that issue in my schoolbag..along with 4 others ^.^

Thanks for the responses..I was leaning towards the ltr out of all the 450s because I could pop on a cherry bomb, and have plenty of enough power I would need (never had any type of sport..vehicle before..but have ridden blaster and piped, cam moded yfz)..and wouldnt need to spend 1000+ on new a-arms etc. Seems like the best bike for me. And bout helmets..Cant see why mud would be aproblem over regular goggles..same thing really..only diff is I dont need goggles...and Id probly look retarded at riding spots with a streetbike helmet but..who cares..id be having fun!

as long as your having fun is all that counts.. with goggles you can get rolloffs or tear aways to keep them clean in muddy conditions.. not sure if they make them for street bike helmets... due to the fact not many street bikes leave the road unless its on accident.. :laugh::laugh:

Comon, never heard of the off-road R1? :laugh:

Sigh..I dont have anything against off-road helmets and goggles..but a streetbike helmet seems nice..pop on helmet..close visor bam..dont have to put on goggles..or even buy goggles at that....no red dirt all over my face..(friend has farm FULL of red dirt) ..stuff is so annoying. Boy, what Id give for that Arai helmet..best of both worlds! xd1.jpg too bad its 400$ ...anyone know of any other helmets like this one? ..that arent..400$

      I own a few older quads mix of kinds a couple of  Yamahas, a Honda, can-am  a Kawasaki, they are older quads but in good shape the question of the day is....... what's the best way to polish up the plastic?
       I have found that Dollar General mold remover is good to get the black stuff off the plastic works good, but was wondering how you polish up the plastics on yours.

      First time working with a Honda-Matic transmission. I didn't even know what I was getting into when I purchased this running beat up farm workhorse quad with black oil. I was thinking I could tear the cases apart and find the bad bearing, causing the random squealing noise when you put it into gear and give it gas. Upon opening the engine covers, I Learned about the Honda Matic automatic transmission and realized there's more than just an electronic shift motor going on in these quads. With my learning curve in major education mode, I'm now wondering two possible culprits to the squealing as I've torn the motor down and am staring at the Honda Matic transmission.

      Two possible issues:
      1. The bearing that is squealing is unfortunately inside the hondamatic unit hydraulic transmission which is apparently not serviceable? A new unit is $1,900 to replace it! Yikes!
      2. The pull starter rope snapped and someone replaced with the wrong pull starter rope that eventually became severely worn out and the centrifugal lever/catch shows signs of wear from rubbing against the housing.
      Thinking now the pull starter has nothing to do with a squealing that loud, so my attention is now on the Hondamatic unit, 
      Has anyone gotten inside their cases to inspect the Honda Matic transmission?
      There's a only 1or 2 videos out there that are not helpful for tear down and inspection.
      I understand it can't be rebuilt but wondering if anyone has looked deep enough into one to clean it out from running dirty oil? Possible identify bad parts.
      I refuse to believe Honda is engineeering these as completely non-serviceable?
      Thinking I will try to disassemble the Hondamatic unit m. Hopefully get into it and get all the dirty oil out and replace with fresh? Any special tools needed?
      Any and all thoughts/experiences with Hondamatic units would be great conversation for me..

      Anyone using the AtV/Motorcycle lift from Harbor Freight? I like the idea of having something other than jack stands. Is there another option that I should look into?

      Purchased a Ranger 150 for the kid and searching info online came across this site. Looking to update the fleet next year with a Turbo SXS.
      This is an upgrade from the Polaris Outlaw 50.

      Was told there was some good information on this forum, so I'm here engaging in some good ole conversation haha. Bought a buggy aka shitcart for 100 dollars. Thing was a woods toy for the past owner. Used and abused until she went boom and was left in a field to die. All things considered that may be an exageration, but the top end of the warrior 350 that was on board was absolutely mangled. Piston and head assembly were totaled. Have a new jug, piston, and head assembly, but struggling to get the crankcase back together without the transmission binding. Can share pics that are on my phone if anyone is interested in seeing this shitty story unfold.
