Well, new to the forum but not new to ATVs. I've been on ATVs for the better part of my 25 years. It started out with a Honda Big Reg ATC shortly after I could walk. I later graduated to a Yamaha Warrior. That was my first exposure to sport quads. The Warrior was swapped out for a Honda Rincon when it became clear that welding a hitch to the warrior and calling it a utility quad wouldn't cut it.

The Rincon was a great ATV that I still have around as the utility and toy for the mud. One of the best trips it took was the Silverton Colorado area. Awesome country:

I then had an itch to get back into the sport world. I bought a Bombardier DS650X back in 2005. The quad has been great to me. I managed to bend all 4 wheels the first day I had it at the MX track. Turns out I have a photo from that day... I probably didn't bend them on this jump but one of them:

All patched up with new wheels:

The most memorable trip the DS has taken was a week long ride on the Hatfield McCoy trail system. Best was this shot one of the guys managed to get. That's me at the bottom after rolling a few yards down the mountain... a true testament to my riding skill :skeptic:

I've also been involved in photography for several years. That's about it... glad to be here.

Welcome aboard schef! I'm glad I posted the link to those pics over at ATVOutdoors! These are some great pictures you have here, I can tell you are a photographer.

I noticed you are an Admin over there. Looks like you are a seosoned poster and any board would benefit from your input!

I'm not as active in the ATV world as I have been. I started ATV Outdoors back in 2002 but I've spent the last year and a half away from the ATV world after passing ownership on to another individual. I still have admin status on the site but that's more of a symbolic role more than anything else.

But it's time to start dusting off the quads that haven't been ridden in a few months and put them to use.

      It will go into neutral, 1st, 2nd, and reverse but nothing after 2nd gear. The shifter moves freely going up completely nothing but when you shift down it works. I’m not sure if it’s tranny issue worth messing with or if I should just buy a new one.  Overall besides that the thing runs like new.

      I'm likely going to have to drop the swingarm on a 300FW. Are the lock rings and pivot bolts standard or left handed threads?  I looked at the service manual and it doesn't specify left hand so I"m assuming standard right handed threads.  Not sure though.  The last Yamaha I had apart was regular right handed threads but haven't had a 300 apart before.

      The VIN on my 2018 Kodiak 450 is not where it's supposed to be. I bought this used. Is there another "hidden" location where I can find it? Need the number for insurance co. Thanks in advance.
