How did you get into Quads?

Recommended Posts

I have been riding dirt bikes since I can remember. Decided a quad would be better for my wife though.

Just bought an ATV last year to give it a try. Have been dirt biking for years but have always been curious how much different an ATV is.

So far I love how much more I can get through. Rock crawling, mud running, deep puddles, the ATV is fun to tackle with.

The only thing I am not liking so far is how much more maintenance I need to do on an ATV compared to a bike...

Initially I was going to get a dirt bike, this was mainly because I was inspired to race dirt bikes this inspiration came from the movie "Motocrossed" at the time i was about 8 years old. For those people who don't know the movie, well its mainly about a girl who impersonates her crippled brother in order to give him the opportunity of corporate sponsorship. well my mother the wonderful caring mother that she was told me that i had to wait until i was 10 to get a dirt bike... well fast forward and we were on our way to the dealership.

 

sadly however the bike that i wanted and  at the price my mother could afford sold the same day we went back for it.  now after loosing interest and at the age of 15 my father bought a 95 polaris sportsman 400 and said that when I turned 16 i could ride it.  well i fell in love with it and in fact i am trying to bring the bike back to  working order of course after it sat for about 5-6 years....

When I was a young one my folks were heavy into "Rock hounding" so we'd go riding out in the middle of the desert looking for petrified wood and rocks. I rode on front of my dad's big old Suzuki before finally getting a hand-me-down 80's Honda with no shocks.

I started at 6 on a honda 70 atc and never slowed down. Now I am sharing the experience of atv's with my sons.

I've been fixing quads for awhile but don't really like to ride them.

For me I like tinkering with off road toys, and about a couple of years ago bought a non running Yamaha Raptor 700R which I got to run.  Now I am going to be picking up soon a free 99 Bayou 200 which I am hoping to get running as well.

      So I bought an 88 qaudracer real nice bike fired up 2-3 kick everytime. When I bought it the brake calipers were not on the bike the guy gave them to me In a box with parts to rebuild. So I HAVnt ever really rode the bike except a quick run testing gears when I bought and I started it and drove in yard not getting out of 3rd due to no brakes. I put it in garage turned it off. The following weekend I put brakes on and go to kick it and it’s seized. I did put it in high gear and rocked it back and forth and got it to kick a couple times. But has seized back up. Any ideas??? Could it be a kicker malfunction??

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.
