My internet's too sh** to see the video today Parham, but good work getting it going.. I'll try looking later.

I don't know what technique you use with the pull start, but the suzuki owners manual suggests an unusual way of using  the decompression lever when using it. Most things you just lift the decomp and then pull the starter. Suzuki say to lift the decomp and then pull the starter very slowly till the decomp lever just flips itself back to the closed valve position, then let the rope right back in, gently engage the pull start and then give it a hard pull. It's a good system. It means you've parked the engine with the exhaust valve just closed and all ready to start an intake stroke, and still leave the motor enough turns to get up to speed before the next compression.. You get full charge of air and fuel, easy pull and a reliable start..

Ha.. and now my internet goes and I see you follow suzuki's way already.. 

I only read about it a while back after years of struggling to get bikes to pull start..

      I see quite a few ads for that  Tribotex additive. It's kind of expensive, has anyone used it it their ATV or any other vehicle?

      My king quad 700 runs rough when cold then won't start some times but not often when it's hot. And occasionally smoke's a lot when it's cold I'm guessing that's rings but I'm worried unless it's causing the other problems
      All help is appreciated thanks

      My friends KQ 300 starts fine and runs, as soon as you put it in gear and try to accelerate its bucks and farts like crazy, not moving... I cleaned carb and it worked good for 1 day... now back to same problem.... could it be such as a bent valve????

      Bucking started about a month ago and works ok after 1/2 hour warmup.  Today while working on it i discovered that if i put the ignition switch in LIGHT position it runs fine right from the start.
      I'm stumped!  Any idea why this could be?

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.
