Bikes too?

Recommended Posts

Guest Fox300exchic

So I was thinking of getting a bike. Im not getting rid of my quad, I just want to learn how to ride both. Anyone have a bike and if so what do you recommend? My husband has a 2002 yamaha 426. I rode that the other day but I have a hard time reaching the ground. I went to turn around on it and it stalled on me, I fell over and it landed on my leg. I had to wait for my husband to come and get it off me. I dont know if I just need to LEARN to ride something that size or if I need something smaller. Any ideas?

I rode a Yamaha 80 a few times, but it wasn't fun, too many things to remember! (it was my 1st time on anything I had to shift gears on that wasn't a car) so I'm sticking with 4 wheels now... :o

I am about the same height as you. my brother had a Honda XL350 that he let me drive and I found that it wasn't to big for me and my feet could touch the ground. hope this helps:)

Maybe its just that im so use to something with four wheels. His bike might have been set up a little different too. My husband is kind of a big man so his suspension might be a little stiffer. We just recently bought a vehicle so we havent really been looking for a bike for me but I will start again in a few months.

      My father-in-law gave my boy a 1999 350 Big Bear. It's been sitting in a barn for a bunch of years. It runs great! My boy has been riding a couple weeks now and it has developed a squeal coming from the front end when you get off the gas at speed. No noise during acceleration. At first I thought brakes. I took it for a ride and I don't think it is the brakes. I feel it is the front prop shaft U-joints, front differential or one/both axles. I pulled the fill plug on the differential and I can't find anywhere how much gear oil should be in there. My gut says up to the fill opening. It doesn't have a manual. It's wet in there, just don't see any gear oil.

      #1 Should I fill the differential with gear oil up to the fill opening?

      #2 How do I check or know if the u-joints are bad? That looks like a "Big Bear" of a job if they don't need to be replaced.

      #3 What else could it be? I don't think it is the front bearings. I jacked the front wheels off ground and no play in the right wheel. Very little play in the left wheel, looks like the lower control bushing is where that play is coming from. The rubber CV boots look original but all still intact. Wheels spin easily without any noise.

      Thanks for any help!

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      Hi guys im new to the forum and i hope i put this in the right spot. But im putting this up for my uncle. But he has a 2002 Bombardier quest rotax 650 4x4 All wheel drive. Now i was driving it down the road today and all sudden it shut down i thought it ran out of gas but it didnt. After it shut downi pushed it to the side of the road and tried to crank it over but it wont crank over. It is a electric start none of the lights or anything work So what i was thinking its in the wiring somewhere right? Does any one have a website that has a wiring diagram for this 4 wheeler or does any one know what else it can be? If anyone has any idea please let me know everything willprobley help thanks guys!!!
