Can Am DS450 X Parts

Well, when I took my quad for it's first ride in cali out ro Ballinger Canyon, I happened to get on a trail that I was too much of a pu*** for, cause I didn't know what was on the other side of the hills. Ended up stopping short on one hill, started sliding back, slid crooked, the wheels caught. I went one way, and Shiela rolled once and landed back on her wheels. The problem is that during the roll, she landed on the handlebars and bent the steering column. I have already called the dealership that I bought my quad from, they want 208.99 for it. and I found a website, Arctic Cat,Polaris,Suzuki,Kawasaki,Honda,Yamaha,Sea-doo,Can-Am dealer Muskegon, Michigan, that has it for 170.99. My question is, does anyone know where I can get a cheaper one. I think it's borderline outragious that I have to pay that much for a foot and a half long piece of steel.

btw, that's another thing that still trips me out....the ALUMINUM handlebars are perfect after the roll, yet the STEEL steering column wasnt....WTH! lol

ya, I'm not interested in a steering column that's just an inch longer, but nearly double the price.

The biggest difference is that it won't bend as easily in a rollover. I did the same thing on my LTR, I bought a TAG metals +1 chromoly stem for $180 off ebay. I also fixed my bent stock one by cutting out the bent section and welding in a straight piece.

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      Can you ride your quad on the road or cross a road if your quad is licensed and registered and you have functional signal lights and running lights?
      Let me know, I'm new to this.
      Thanks!

      95 bayou 300 2wheel. This is my first four wheeler. The guy I bought it from showed me slight drip on his floor from a drain plug he recently retapped. I figured I could handle a small leak from a second hand machine. Well after a few times of riding it the bayou seems to be running low on oil. Now maybe this is normal operations as well so I refilled the oil. But the next day I notice my drip on the floor was slightly larger. I wanted to see this drain plug for myself so I took off the skid plate and found a pretty rough looking installed drain plug. It does have a small drop but also seemed to have an excessive gasket and maybe some grey looking “jb-weld” ish material around it. So that’s scary but I figure surely that’s not the only source since my floor spot Grew a bit. I went on to find recent moist around the head gasket for the top end. I’ve never seen it drip but it drips on the new starter the guy installed so it seems the head gasket leaks too. He did say he replaced that gasket when I inquired about the darken stains around that area of the motor. He said he replaced that gasket during. Ring replacement when the bayou was smoking. It no longer smokes by the way. So I continue on thinking well maybe I can do another top end gasket myself some day but still the oil on the floor suggests a more visible leak. I mean it’s not a lot but it grew as I mentioned. Then I find my what seems to be an awful thing. The pull cord and starter was replaced by the preavious owner and it appears there’s a busted area on the crankcase where the left side cover mounts to the L-case.I have not seen oil from there but that looks scary to me. Does this area hold oil? I wondered if it doenst maybe I’ll leave it be but if it does it’s probably the reason I lost some oil. I also found tonight oil on the rubber boot cover I think is for the drive shaft or something. Idk my first ride so I’m unsure of how to proceed. Especially with the case cracked like that. I don’t know how the engine works but if there is indeed oil there in the operation of things it seems like I must do a major engine over haul….. any insight would be so very helpful. I bought this for my daughter but I may have been bitten by going with such An older model.

      Hi All,
      I have a 1992 Suzuki King Quad 300. I got it in rough, picked apart condition on Facebook marketplace. The previous owner was not mechanically inclined and threw parts, and deleted parts to get this to "run". To give you an idea of what I am dealing with he put a non vacuum carb on with a separate fuel bladder mounted on the rear rack. I live in CT and things are a bit high here so I got the atv with a plow for $400. The atv came with (3) Carbs, 1 OEM, (2) petcocks 1 OEM. What I have done / found is the neutral safety switch was ate by mice (probably the original problem), fixed that, reinstalled (cleaned and put in a new needle and seat) OEM carb, the diaphragm is a little clapped out but still flexible, installed new Fuel pump, cleaned and reinstalled OEM petcock (non vacuum) has slight drip every now and again as I did not replace the tank side gasket when I installed and installed a brand new battery.  doing all that the quad fires and runs but briefly.  On the handle bar the choke paddle is broke off, I ordered that and looks like you need to remove the grip to install so haven't done yet and If i can get some direction on that as well, So that is "floating" in  the carb as I do not have the correct choke cable connector, I took the one off the Chinese carb and it somewhat holds it in place. The air box and system are gone and it has a stubby K&N cone filter on it currently.  So the way I start it is pop off the air filer, hold my hand over the carb to get a good enough vacuum to get to the bowl, then it will run for a few seconds. The tank is filled to the top, to help it out. Does anyone think I am missing anything before purchasing the entire air box system (If I can find it). This will be a yard machine for work and will not be taken out recreationally, cool little machine I would like to keep it, but unsure if I will spend the money on a airbox system as it for sure seems I am not pulling a good enough vacuum with out it.
