New to the quads my neighbor just gave me an old Suzuki quadrunner 230. It has been sitting on his trailer in the back 40 for 7 years since it last ran so I figured it would be a good winter project. Not sure of the year I believe late 80’s
I am sure I will have lots of questions but for now just searching the forums for info.
Hello - Quick introduction. I live in Arkansas on a farm. Built hot rods and customs for over 20 years. I love to wrench and toy with machines. I have 3 different quads (92' LT4WD Suzuki 250 Quadrunner, 91' Yamaha Moto4, 01' Honda Rancher ES) and 1 82' Honda ATC.
Just thought I'd start a new thread for newbies to the site!
If you're new here, tell us who you are, where you're from and what you ride!!!
Lets get to know each other a little better shall we?
I'm not new to the site, obviously, but...
I'm Kristin from Denver!!! I ride a 2008 Yamaha Rhino. She's my muddy baby!!!!!! Several aftermarket parts on her. She's good to me! We try and ride every weekend. This weekend we're off to MOAB! :woot:
Hi guys, first post here.
I have a Big Bear 350 that I purchased for yard work. First job was to drag a small harrow around with to level my back yard. I bought it used, worked fine on the test ride around the neighborhood. I've never licensed it or taken it on any trail rides. I've literally put less than two miles on it. Almost all the work was done in 1st or 2nd gear in low range.
As I was dragging the harrow, it began getting progressively harder to shift, even with the motor off. It's like something was out of alignment internally and binding up. Now I can't get it to shift at all. The shifter feels like it won't move through the full range to complete a shift, like something is blocking it.
I already know I got screwed on the deal. What do you think it's going to take to fix? Common issue?

I have a 99 250 Quadrunner. Currently has no spark. It would run for 5 minutes, then shut off. After it cooled down about 20-30 minutes, it would start again. I ordered a new stator and found the old one was damaged (copper windings broken) I installed the new stator, filled with oil and now it has no spark. Any assistance would be helpful

I have a 2000 Honda trx90 I got from a buddy for free he said it needed a carb so I put his old carb back on it to try to get something out of it and it does not have any Spark. I already replaced the ignition coil I don't know much about four wheelers but I am a technician so I do know my way around a motor any electrical help would be wonderful or specs I don't have the best digital multimeter either.

Hey, so I’ve got a 98’ 300ex with a few mods.... jet kit, k&n air filter, it’s got 18” rear tires. I’m just wondering what would be the best mods so I can keep up with say a 400ex on the straight always, I already can in the trails simply because I’m a better rider.....

Hey y'all. I have a Yamaha ymf 250 BearTracker. I got this thing for free from people whose son tore it to hell. So it wasn't in great shape to begin with. i.e. no indicator lights (neutral light for instance), no ignition switch or key( wires were twisted together to make it run), get the picture yet?
So when it ran it ran rough and I got it running for a year or two, just something fun for the kids to ride on with me on gravels.
Now just randomly, the start button stopped working so I had to jump the solenoid, then put a temp start switch in. Kill switch would still work.
However, the thing has no spark what-so-ever. I've check continuity through the start button and it shows the contact is working, ohmed out the stator, everything is in spec, the reg/rec tested fine as well. I've replaced the solenoid on the off chance it could've been bad and the cdi unit as well, along the the little solenoid relay unit. I'm still getting no spark. The spark plugs is new as well and the coils to the plug have been tested and are good. I've tested and trouble shooted everything I can on this quad and no luck. I watched countless YouTube "no spark" situation videos and it's not helped. Does anyone have any tips or tricks I could try? Would really appreciate some input on this. Thanks!

Hey everyone, I've been scratching my head over this for most of the day. I bought a couple of Bayou 220's, got them running (they've both been sitting), and started tweaking and fixing small things. One of them is mostly done, the other had an aftermarket carb on it and I've been trying to sort that out.
Anyway, while adjusting the carb it died a few times, I restarted and moved on until it died and wouldn't restart. I figured maybe I'd flooded it or something - after further attempts I realized I had no spark. Since I have two identical machines I have many parts at my disposal. I've swapped the CDI, spark plug and coil with no luck. I have good resistance readings from the stator and pick up (135 and 110 respectively), I don't have a peak voltage meter but I measure around 53VAC on the stator when cranking. I have a 4 wire stator, not an alternator like the newer ones. Grounds look good, I've checked the kill switch by verifying that it and the ignition switch grounds the black/yellow wire to the CDI. I can turn the engine slowly and see the pickup short the meter as well, seems normal right? So far everything I've checked looks the same on both machines. I've got the service manual and wiring diagrams. Do these readings make any sense? I'm obviously missing something but I'm stumped. thanks!
