Hey guys! Stoked to be here because ive found its pretty hard to get help for mini quads

I recently bought a mini quad (it's a piece of poop so i have no clue the make) and it ran perfectly fine. I was running it a few weeks ago all day and it worked fine and the next day when i went to start it, the kickstart bar was super hard to push down but i could still do it, then it would skip and finish off hard to push down.

I have fairly intermediate mechanic abilities so i was able to pull off the cover and start playing around. it seems the kickstart spring is fine but i noticed a bunch of metal shavings. long story short i posted pictures and took a video of how things are kind of running. i assume the gears started grinding and now they wont catch fully, hence the skipping?  

Also, im aware the main gear on the left has broken teeth, i found out the hard way when i tried to take off the nut and the teeth broke.

The video didn't work for me.

That brass dust/chips will be coming from a bush behind that outer pulley sheave.

It sounds like you have several problems to fix now though, and if that bike is as badly made as I think it is, it might be time to cut your losses and quit with it now. I'd try and identify it first off. You need to know whether pars are available, and how much they might cost.

damn i was worried that might be the case : /

just to make sure i understand what youre saying should i remove most of that left assembly and see whats been chipped/ground away?

also any recommendations where to find what make it is? should there be something on the frame?

Yes you need to take that belt drive system off and fix the wear, and what caused it.

There should be some identifying numbers somewhere. There might be a plate on the steering head or frame somewhere, or there might just be numbers stamped into the frame.

If you post a picture someone may know it, or, paste a picture into google and see what it finds.
