Today we took the new Rhino to a nice easy trail called Rollins Pass East. Rollins Pass is one of the old routes from the mining days. It is a very easy but scenic ride. Good place to break in the new motor. At the summit there is a tunnel called Needles Eye. You can't go through it for safety reasons. The other side of the tunnel is Rollins Pass West. Completely different trail heads. Here is a few pics from today.

These are the new Rhino at one of our resting spots.

One of the many shelf roads. You MUST keep your eyes on the road.

A few little clips of the ride. This is one of the easiest trails we ride. A fun relaxing cruise. Breaking in the motor on the Rhino.

The upgrade they made on the Rhino's suspension from 06-08 is unreal. The 700 was soaking up some good size bumps at about 25MPH like it was nothing. The 06 would buck alot.

It wasn't bad at all up there. Shorts and a sweat shirt and it was comfortable. It was 100 degrees in denver. The mountains were nice. Yeah that was snow. At 13,000 feet snow stays there year round.

      I got a good bit of riding in today I am liking the sport quad! How many of you got to ride this weekend?

      I went out today checking on some trails for downed trees and other things I will need to clean up before spring.
      I am still working on getting my Drift HD cam set up, so the quality isn't where I would like it to be. My average speed was around 30 but even tho I got up to 40 once or twice, I think the video looks like I was going a lot faster. Maybe that has to do with the frames per second setting.
      Anyways, I hope ya'll like it, and I am working on getting some other people out riding with me, so I can get some good action shots.
      Sooner or later I will learn how to make better soundtracks too, so please bear with me, I am not quite up to Wyldes level of video making.

      We took a little drive today to go look at a truck I was thinking of buying. Bout an hour east of home.
      Imagine a place where cars and trucks are secondary and ATVs are everywhere.

      If so desired I could drive my foreman to church on Sunday.
      This town was crawling with them. I even saw an old lady delivering a lunch sack on a little Bayou from a sandwich shop.

      i finally managed to make it to the trails today, been trying four days to go!! this is the first time to really ride my king quad since i removed the fuel injection, other than just around the neighborhood. i took it out to the gravel pit, had one of my neighbors ride my honda so there was backup. both bikes done great ... until we got to the frog pond!!! i decided to take the trail through the back edge of the pond, got all the way around and then right as i was getting back into the pond i sunk it!! it went down to the handle bars, luckily I put a snorkel on when i put the carburetor on it!! it stayed running, but i never even thought of sealing the belt cover and running a snorkel of that!! it would not move in high range, would try to and just slip, in low range it would move as long as i didnt gas it too hard, just shut it down and towed it back, tomorrow im taking the bike apart and thoroughly cleaning and sealing everything, and replacing belt:aargh:

      So I have rebuilt two top end's now and going through the process of a third.  I'm confused about how high the compression should be on these atv engines, and if low compression, what should be replaced or checked and how?  And as far as smoking, how to tell what is the issue there as well.  The first rebuild i did was on a kawasaki 300 and it turned out ok...  I realize that I adjusted the valve clearance on the exhaust stroke rather than the compression stroke which caused a tick.  nut the thing that got me was one both rebuilds, the compession reading didnt really change that much.  I've heard that engines should have over 100psi compression, yet have never seen 100psi reached on my tester by any engine.
      this thread is open to any top end questions btw.

      So just as a general FYI, it might be good to check replacement parts before installing.  If possible, check clearances with a micrometer before going through the trouble of assembly.  I say this as I bought a new driveshaft yoke for a Kodiak because the ujoint dropped a cap and got the yoke in a bind...blowing the yoke and middle drive gear to shreds.  So I replaced the middle drive gear and bought a new yoke and ujoint kit from Caltric.  Caltric is usually pretty solid replacement parts.  The new yoke however was a good 4mm too narrow for inside lock ujoint caps.  Disappointing since it came as a kit from Caltric.
      Ended up taking an angle grinder to the new yoke and thinning material off to get it to the needed 41.25mm opening size.  Sucks having to disassemble everything again and start over but my fault for trusting replacement parts.  Nearly 40 years of turning wrenches and I made a rookie mistake.

      Any current Northern AZ folks out there on this forum? Im up in Flagstaff. Any organized rides anyone knows of?
    • By Ryan Geiler
      New to the ATV world, picked up a solid used Kodiak 400.  It appears the former owner did some sort of modification for a saddle bag or something along those lines--and I'd like to match it up and replace it.  Not a big deal by any means but something I thought I would give a shot at finding.
      does anyone recognize what kind of luggage/bag/cargo would go where those white tabs are he drilled through that fuel fender?
       
      Thanks again
