nice place! you appear to even have a 'hide from the wife' or perhaps a 'man cave' upstairs! AWESOME!:yes:

Mine is nothing so elaborate, and I still have extra junk [from moving and being the family storage unit too] until I get all my floor space back... will post a pic when I am not ashamed of it LOL.

The wood stove out there has come in really handy!

I don't have anything special, Just a 2 car garage.

Is it mean that I make Kristin park her car in the snow so our toys have enough room?

That was my Dad's favorite rule!!!! Always seemed to work 99% of the time to. Also my repair shop is either outside or at Mom's house until I get money saved up for a 3 car garage. Edited by BuckBilly

cool looking place you got there... i like all the wood... Any pics of the whole thing during the day?

Thanks, we really enjoy it. It makes for a very nice and useful "out building". In fact we lived in it for 7 months while we gutted and remodeled the main house. It is all 2x6 construction with 12 ft ceilings and is run off an independent 200amp panel in the main house and has 3 sub-panels. Aside from the man cave HQ it also has 2 stables and a 100 bale hayloft plus outdoor hot/cold shower. There is also a party pavilion and fire pit built down there. We have many parties with loads of guests and no one needs to set a foot in our house. Bring your kids, bring your dogs, stay over if you like, we all have fun and the house stays clean.

Here are some more pics.

There is a lean to on the back.

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!

      Hi, I'm a newbie on here.  I just got a 2007 Suzuki KingQuad LT-A450X.  Are there any specific issues to look for on this model?  Any specific maintenance to do other than the usual oil and filter changes?  
      Thanks
