Akron Ohio ATV riding couple says HOWDY!

Recommended Posts

I just found this site and thought I would join. A couple quick lines about the wife and me. First we own 5 quads. From new to old-- 2008 Suzuki KQ 450 axi LE. This is Vickie's (my wife). She absolutely LOVES this thing. The mods on this quad are front and rear bumpers, front winch, hand guards, rear view mirrors and heated grips. It has given her MUCH more confidence in riding. Next is a 2002 Polaris Scrambler 500 HO 4x4. This is my trail ride. Mods are front and rear winches, hand guards, heated grips, rear rack, taller handle bars, a-arm guards, modified muffler and ITP tires. Next, 1999 Polaris Scrambler 400 4x4 2 stroke. I am turning this quad into a more sporty beast. This winter it will be getting several performance upgrades. Stock this is 38hp. I hope to be in the 65hp range by spring. Then the racer of the bunch, a 1999 Honda 400ex. This is the only 2 wheel drive we own. I really don't ride this one much and am giving it to my son. Mods include full skid plates, smaller counter shaft sprocket, air deflectors. Last and the work horse of the bunch is a 1987 Honda TRX350D Foreman. This one plows the drive, hauls the fire wood trailer, and drags brush.

We ride mostly in PA where we own a cabin. Last vacation we spent there we did 250 miles. Still only did a small number of the trails.

Well that's enough for now, just want to say thanks for letting us join.

Ken

Hey handyhiker, welcome to QUADCRAZY! You got some nice machines there. How do you like that 450 KQ? Does it have digital instrumentation? Some nice modifications. Where did you get the bumbers for the KQ? I haven't looked in a while, but when I did I could not find anything for the 700. Got any pictures?

She is not much of a web person. I might be able to get her to look at a few things and comment, but don't think she would sign up herself. I will tell her that the offer was made to her and see what she says.

Thanks for the link and pics. I had a hard time finding bumbers 2 years ago. I guess they're out there now! Thanks for posting the pics!

Here's a pic of mine when it was newer..., never had bumpers on it:

      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

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob

      I have a Chinese Hybird 250 or that's what I was told it was. I found 17 numbers on the frame. Will these numbers tell me exactly what it is that I have? (I know that its a 2006 from a plate on the front)

      I have a 110cc atv not sure of a brand its a Chinese model. I put on a new harness with cdi solenoid and all those. I have put a new starter on, and carburetor. I bypassed the start button cause it was just making the solenoid click. with the new button switch the atv will crank but not start. I tried to jump the solenoid and it did nothing. I am stumped. also I noticed gas leaking from the carburetor and when I took the filter off there was gas in it. I cleaned the carburetor and nothing was stuck or clogged. can someone help me out.
