New ATV rider and ATV.


Recommended Posts

"Wolf" in North Idaho, Ulfthednar to all ya'll heathens out there.

New to ATVs but not real new to life.

Just picked up a 2022 CFMoto CForce 800XC.

I've been wrenching on my own vehicles since my first bicycle fifty years ago.

I have found in the long run that the brand name in most cases has less to do with than the idiot wielding the wrench.

Built up several trucks, built my 80 80 FLH Electra Glide out of milk crates, wrenched on a lot of other stuff in between.

Ive even Trail road my 73 shovel in places that would give a kid with a BMX second thoughts.

Anyway, Ive wanted an ATV for awhile and its already handy around the house and a lot of fun out on the trails.

From a point of view of working on things for quite awhile . . I am not disappointed in the least yet.

Not with ATV riding or the machine . . .

My back yard runs up to about an 8 or 9 pitch (for ya carpenters out there) and rips right up it.

This thing pulls hills and handles pretty damn good once you get the drifties going.

Its close to 1,000 lbs so I dont really see it as a jumping machine, but it handled a pretty good bunch of whoopties out on an MX/ATV trail.

Once I got the timing down of the machine it was a sheer blast.

Id have more pics of that day, but every time I stopped the bald face wasps tried to jack my machine and lunch.

I've got a couple of plastic "fish bins" on my bike. I made mild steel straps running down inside for strength and the outside straps have  hooks that hook under the carrier rails to keep them in place. I can push the bins at the top and they tilt forwards or back and dump whatever's in them. They are handy general carriers, and I use them to shale my drive. Shovel the shale in and tip it out. Tossing stuff in them's easier than tying it on.. and I've already got enough tied on with the spade, shovel,, pick, rake, slasher, and sometimes firewood. The bins, when they aren't being used for shale have handsaw, kero, axe, wedges, short ropes, sledge-hammer, chains, chain-block and  shackles, spanner.. stuff that's hard to tie on..

Ive found plano makes a couple of bins that will fit perfectly in the back corners of my rear rack.

theyre "on the list" of to buy stuff.

Also aiming for the rack insert that locks in because the passenger seat comes off.

I ended up with an extra passenger seat in a bits n pieces trade but I don't think ill be able to use the seat bracket and build a rack.

It doesnt have a basic "framework" but is modularly designed specific to the seat.

I MIGHT be able to trade for it though . . 


thats not a bad idea . . an ATV/UTV swap meet . .

      I'm currently pulling my hair out over a customers 98  bayou 2x4 KLF300b. I've changed every electrical component on it twice and in a couple instances three times. Still no spark, I am baffled. Initially customer brought it to me complaining of a hard start no start situation and in fact, it wouldn't start. I changed the starter relay, spark plug,  CDI box, and starter circuit relay after which it fired right up ran very well but then started having issues with the neutral switch/light where it wouldn't come on and wouldn't allow it start or even turn over. I found in the wiring harness a loose connection, I got it taken care of and secured and that solved the problem. So now that it would crank up again and run fine I called the customer over to test it out see what he thought as I've never heard it run before and I wanted to get his opinion on how it was running. Customer ride it around a little bit pulled it back on my carport and turned the key off and said it was great, and had never ran better or started so easily, then we set up a time for him to come pick it up the following day and he left. Well where he pulled it on my carport and shut it off was in the middle of the carport so I jumped back on it to park it off to the side,  crank it up no problems put it in reverse went about maybe 18 inches and it stalled and ever since that point it has not had spark or run. I replaced the CDI box again with a better brand, I replaced the ignition coil twice put another starter relay on it and I've also changed out the stater and the pick up coil (pick up coil twice) and I'm just I'm lost I don't know what else to do to it. I've had this customers  four wheeler for four months now whereas he's a patient guy I need to get it out of here so I can move on to something else. I've seen dozens of threads across  different sites for off-road, 4 wheelers, ATVs, UTV's, whatever and they are all experiencing the same sort of issue but they never ever post hear the problem was or  the fix. So I'm hoping somebody here has a little bit of knowledge on this particular issue sent since it seems to be so widespread.  Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
