Hey Quadcrazy,

Well I am new to the atv world, I have been using one of my buddies four wheeler for about 6 months, it is an old one that he never uses. I really enjoy going with my buddies and I am wanting to upgrade to something a little better and newer, I ride a 1970 something Yamaha two wheel drive 250, but I am wanting something for this winter that will rip through the snow and during the rest of the year trail ride.

I am not wanting to spend a lot of money, I am just wondering where I should start looking and for what.

Thanks

Welcome to the site, I take it that you would want a 4x4 over a sport. I would highly recommend a Brute Force of a Grizzly. There are plenty of guys on here with those machines that rave about them. I myself am a sport guy. WWW.Craigslist.com would be a good place to start looking for something used.

It doesn't say what state you are in, but what does everyone else there ride? I ride my Raptor year around with some serious snow, but your buddies my prefer utilities instead. let us know!

I guess both lol, but I do a lot of mudding. So I am guessing I would want a utility atv but I really do not want to spend a lot of money.

What do you consider a lot of money. What is your budget. The machines like the Grizzly and the Brute Force are a work horse, they will power through just about anything and they still have a top speed near 70mph. The sport quads, like what I ride. don't do well in mud. We only have about 4" of ground clearance. The 4x4s have I think about 10".

      Hello,
      I have just acquired an old (1995) Kawasaki Bayou 220. It is in relatively good condition but I would really like to overhaul it.
      Do you know how I can find the service manual?
      thanks!

      With a name like QuadCrazy I feel at home right from the start. I live in Houston Texas and just picked up two quads for me and my son. 
      I wanted to start by saying hello to all and find out if there are any others here from the Houston or Texas area. 
      Cheers

      We just bought this about 2 weeks ago and the chain keeps popping off. I’ve dealt with 4 wheelers in the past but nothing with this chain setup.

      Hello, 

      I have only been riding for a few years now but encountered a situation today where I needed to tow a riding lawn mower out of a ditch. It was going well but I had to stop in the middle and place the 4 wheeler in park to turn the wheels on the lawn mower so it would glide out of the slope easily. I am wondering if it is going to cause damage with all of that weight resting on the transmission when I had the 4 wheeler in park. It was only for about 45 seconds, then I got back on and tugged it the rest of the way. This 4 wheeler doesn't have a parking break so that wasn't an option.

      Thanks!
