I use fox gloves. My hands are really small so I have to wear girls instead of womans. My boots are fox too and those are pretty nice. They saved my ankle from being broken into pieces. Well, we gotta start somewhere. If you know of anyone that would want to join, send them the link and tell them about us. :)

That sucks! We make sure we close our garage door if no one is outside so something like that doesnt happen.

They broke into my truck and took the garage door opener... let themselves in! Someone stole an old IT 200 dirtbike out of the trailer in front of our house a few months before that... funny thing is it didn't even run! That's why it was on the trailer, going into the shop the next morning... I think it was probably the same thief looking for the rest of our toys... So now my garage and house are alarmed, and the trucks too.... no more garage door openers in the car, they are keychain remotes that stay with the house keys, inside! Sorry that got so long, just had to vent a bit...

I really dont have any "riding gear" to speak of, but I have been shopping around on line. Any advice on maybe where the best bargains are and what brand is the most comfortable???

Im a big fan of fox. If you couldnt tell. lol I just bought a pair of mens fly racing pants that are over the boot and turn into shorts if you unzip the pant leg. I like them because its kind of warm in the afternoon here so I wear them as shorts and it gets cooler in the evening and I can just put the pant legs back on. Everything else is fox though. Helmet, gloves, jersey and boots. About a month ago I bought the Tattoo helmet from fox.

Fan of fox eh, I have been looking and they have some nice stuff! That helmet is really cool!!! I haven't seen anything like that yet. I havent found a whole lot that isnt pink or purple. Not that I dont like the girly colors, becuase I do. But I kind of want to match my quad, so I have been looking for black. I would really like a unique helmet, but I know I am going to have to save for something like that.

Hey Girlz!

I found a kit that comes with jersey,pants,gloves and boots for 129.00! I have never heard of it so I thought I would ask you guys before I commit. Its Oscelot from www.chaparral-racing.com. I would like some input if you have any. And another question, when it comes to boots do they tend to run true to size or not. I usually have a problem fitting boots so I like to ask questions before I buy. Thanks for any input you may have. :)

I've never heard of them either but like he said that doesnt mean anything. They could still be decent. Boots...I also agree with him. I ride with the fox trackers. Those are good and they broke in really fast. Hope that helps. biggrin

I am a huge Troy Lee fan! I own Fox and No Fear riding pants, jerseys and gloves. My boots are Alpine Stars.. love them! I used to have Oneil and they just don't compare to my Alpine Stars!!! I am in the market for a new helmet, but for now I have an Oneil helmet.

      I am repairing my 100 for the grandkids, the rear axle pinion gear is chewed up, but luckily I found a used on from an old moto 4 80cc that is interchangeable...I only had to change out the axle hubs, and they are splined, so that was easy. I now need to fill the rear casing with grease, as I cleaned all the old grease out. What should I use for this? It is sealed when assembled, with no way to check it or fill it further. Any help is appreciated.

      I have a 2006 kingquad 700 efi I got a 2" lift with 28" silverbacks,I've got a 106 cp big bore kit, and I'm looking to see what I can do to get a gear reduction and I can't find it any where is it in the beveal gears or a clutch kit?

      I recently bought a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 4x4 with CVT. The bike runs great. Starts right up and motor sounds solid. My problem is sometimes when I shift into gear it grinds as I'm shifting. I always make sure the bike is at a complete stop, I press the foot brake on, and I shift the lever into HIGH or LOW or REVERSE and it grinds as it pops in gear. I'm guessing maybe the idle is too high or I may need a new clutch kit. It has the original stock CVT clutch (springs and weights) so it's probably due for some maintenance. I have adjusted the throttle screw on the carb and when I first turn on bike when cold it idles fine, but after I've been riding a while and she is good and warmed up she idles slightly higher which then creates this horrible grind noise when I shift into gear. My old '92 Polaris Trail Boss did the exact same thing but I found if I applied the foot brake it stopped it from grinding. Pressing the foot brake as I shift doesn't seem to help. I have not opened up the cvt cover to investigate the pulleys yet. Any advice before I start dismantling parts? I'm thinking I will adjust my idle down a little. If this doesn't help I'll take a look at the CVT. Previous owner claims he installed a NEW belt, but never messed the pulleys. And on a side note I plan on changing the stock 25" tires with some 26" or 27" mud tires. This would be a good reason to upgrade my bike with a clutch kit. It would help turn the bigger tires and I'm guessing it might help with this grinding problem.
      Any help is greatly appreciated. I am handy with a wrench, but I am not a mechanic by trade.

      Ok, I dug around on here but to no avail. A newbie here so be gentle.
      My 01 Kodiak 400, (bought new and fluids seem good) automatic, will slip/jerk if in park on a slope. Shifts and drives fine all the time but just not strong on the parking. So, nothing I cant live with for now but...will it harm anything if I delay repairs? Is it something that can be repaired without it looking like a titanic overhaul and is it typically a high dollar thing?
      Thank you much in advance!!

      A couple years ago, i helped my dad rebuild the engine on a 98 Suzuki 230. It has a clutchless manual and im not sure how many speeds.
      When you go to riding it, it is hard to get into, and out of first gear, and sometimes second gear is a real pain to get to. What needs to be done to fix the transmission, or transaxle on it?
      So far ive never had it higher than third gear and even it was a challenge to downshift from there.
