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:

      I have bought a 1996 suzuki king quad 300 and I have noticed that it smokes but I have put oil in it and plenty of gas had to fix shifter bc the nuts and bolts came out somewhere. I have had to replace the wire for the starter but now when I try to start it it wont idle at all and when it does run it smokes really bad like a whitish blue I guess, and it likes to stall a lot. So anybody can help me out please and thank you

      Doesnt seem to make the sound all the time. Mostly does it under load or going up an incline. Its kind of like a clunk and or grinding noise, Kind of hard to decipher. Today while going up an incline it actually stopped and it sounds like something spinning and then it ingauged again and it would move. I checked the clutches and installed a new belt before it did that also. Rear drive shaft seems ok where U joint is too. Has all new rear CV shafts and bearings and al new bushings in rear arms. Also flushed out the rear Diff with no shavings. Any ideas or where to check.

      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.
