Well, one of the things i liked doing as a kid was taking things apart and putting them back together. Now i am killing to buy a junk quad and rebuild it. I will either sell it or keep it. Now what i am asking is... what should i buy to rebuild that i can get good parts for.

P.S. Me and my dad are machanically inclined so no need to worry

I dont know how mechanically inclined you are.... but if your dad is really good at it and you got the money check the atv wreck sites,, or go onto used atv sites and find old atvs like 1999 and under.... like a Kawasaki tecate or bayou.... or if your into race bikes go with a honda 250r or any old hondas

2 strokes are definitely easy to work on and Blasters are very plentiful and very fun to ride also.

He said you better hold on tight because Quadzilla is 500cc's of pure 2 stroke power in a 4 wheeler before government regulations. It's a rocket!

they are some beasts but the 500 and the 250 have weak frames... so if you do one of them i would recommend putting some gussets on the frame

Can you tell me where they are weak at???? There is one in Virgina that I am thinking about Trading....

And on the 2 Strokes......I would go with a Blaster to start..They are Relatively Cheap and you can bump them from 200cc to 240cc. for about 200 Bucks....At least that what I remember the kit being....

As long as it runs like he says hell yeah!

2nd that Stoopidbot1.

This is a killer deal. Those little blasters are fun, although the suspension is pretty rough. = )

The suspension is good enough if you use it like the blaster was made to be. No huge jumps, just some fun riding and sliding.

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I have a Motobecane 50cc moped that needs a home. I picked it up a few years ago for a restoration project but never got around to it. It is complete and would be an excellent father - son project. All the parts needed are available at "treatlandtv.com". If interested it is yours for the taking. I am located in Maryville, Tn.

      Just a new question of opinion to assist a new rider. I want to get a 4 wheeler and my fist choice of the three is small project but my main concern is availability of parts. Option two would be used but then there is the problem with ATVs not knowing how to swim. Don't really want to but one that drowned and got mouth to mouth. Last would be new. Opinions and experiences welcome.

      Scored this today, it's a 91 Warrior, PO claims to have a lot of new guts in it. Swingarm bushings are shot. Turns over, and looks pretty straight. traded a 78 XS11 dresser and a 76 Xt500 for it.
      the dresser had been up on kijiji for a few months at 750 with a few tire kickers but no takers, and the XT was a 100 dollar deal.
      Stupidest thing was, the xs runs on 2 holes, and I kicked the bejeezus out of the xt last nite.. The xs fired right up, and the xt started 2 kicks. Still hated both of them and glad they are gone.

      Bought this 1995 Yamaha Moto-4 350 from my wifes cousin the other day for 200 bucks... carb needs rebuilt, new intake manifold, ignition switch, petcock, brakes, battery and tires. I figure I will spend around 500 in parts... so I will have 700 in it.. do you guys think that is an ok deal? I know it looks pretty rough. But enjoy cleaning and painting. I already have the paint scheme I plan on putting on it in my mind.
      THanks guys.

      02 prairie 300 has a pull knob beside the idle adjustment knob. Any one know what it's for I'am unsure. The choke is on the handlebars . It's popping back thru the carb & backfiring out the exhuast. The seller said he had the carb cleaned and he put seafoam in the tank.
