What kind of budget are you on? What kind of riding do you do?

For basic trail riding I would say get an exhaust, aftermarket air filter with the carb jetted correctly. Get a new CDI box that will give you an increased ignition curve and a higher rev limiter. Those things would give you some major gains.

As for looks, I don't know what kind of bumpers and such are available for the Ozark but some new rims and tires always give it a sharp new look.

Try Plexus Plastic Polish to restore the look of your plastics.

No after market bumpers for it. Recreation tire and wheel can help you with aftemarket tires and wheels. You can also mount a winch on it. Any tire and wheel combo that fits a Honda Recon 250 will fit your Ozark. example

Heres is Toolmans 07 with the 23x8x12 an 23x10x12 swampfoxs on it. No rubbing anywhere on it. No lift kit on it either.

I found this picture on a thread from ATV Source.

As far as performance mods bots got that covered. Just watch how much you dump into it if you want a bigger quad. I have owned my Ozark since 02, with no problems. Personally I wouldn't mess with motor mods. My friend done that with a Recon , it helped. But for the money should of been put towards a bigger quad. Stock they are awsome , motor wise anyhow.

Check my profile and look at mine. I ride with 300Ex with no problems. Also the Z-250 and 250 EX won't out run me either out in the open or wooded trails. If you want a racing quad , you are better of spending your money on a sport quad, not an utility quad.

BB, they race 4x4's in GNCC races and the Baja. Why not?

I would start out with new shocks. If you can find some Elkas, Fox, Axis or I-shocks for them that will increase your handling and wheel travel. You increase handling you decrease lap times.

The Ozark is not a 4x4, and after market is very limited for the Ozark. Personally I would not spend much more than what a tire and rim combo. The engine performance up grades are not worth they money. By the time you upgrade the engine and shocks, you could of sold the Qzark and bought a 400Ex , Z-400, and ETC. I just hate to see him waste all that money and not have total satisfaction. Beleive me I have spent countles hours checking on upgrades for the Ozark.

Hello new to the site. I was googling recon and came upon my picture that was used in your post. It looks like your using a picture of my 07’ recon. Am I right?

Hey Dumbass,, why was you using a picture of my 07 recon an saying it was yours? Talk about a lameass person, you gotta take the prize.

An don't tell me you didn't, because I was googling recon an came upon my picture that was in your post at one time.

Your not a mod, your a thief IMO

Cat

First off it was copied an pasted from ATV Source. I did not notice the wording. I screwed up. Opps!!

By the way I corrected the wording for you. Thank you for pointing that out to me Toolman.

      Hi all,
       
      Picked up my first Brute Force yesterday. What should have been an awesome afternoon of riding turn a bit into a deception. As I was unable to really take it out for a test drive at the shop, I decided to buy it and agreed that I would take the test drive at home. 
      When giving full throttle I noticed that the Brute was choking and lost all of its powers. Faulty fuel pump most likely. 
      Called the shop and the are coming to pick it up and repair it and bring it back. Good service. Nevertheless feels a bit sour in the mouth as I was told it was a 100% good. 
      Need to have some patience I now before I can really start riding. 
      Cheers,
      Erik

      I have two 2003 Suzuki Ozark 250s, both 2-wheel drive.  Last time we rode them about a year ago, the red one was not running well, didn't want to idle, backfired a lot.  The green one ran fine. 
      Fast forward...I ordered a carb kit for both of them, thinking the red one has some trash in a jet.  Both of these ATVs have had little use and I've always ran the gas out after use (put an inline cutoff valve in gas line).  I pull started the red one to verify it was still running bad.  It will start and idle, but as soon as you give it any throttle, it dies instantly.  Give it a little choke, dies instantly.  Took the carb apart and it was spotless.  Went ahead and cleaned all the holes with carb cleaner and blew everything out with compressed air.  All new jets, main jet holder, and needles.  Put it back on and nothing changed.  Starts, idles (not for a long time), but dies as soon as you give it gas.  Same happens when you put the choke on.  It does the same thing when I try to run it turned to prime on the petcock as it does in the on position.
      Not an air filter issue.  It is clean and it does the same exact thing with no filter on it.
      Thought maybe there was a float issue or maybe a damaged diaphragm, so I took the carb off the green Ozark and put it on red.  Started up and initially ran normal and revved for about 10 seconds and then started doing the same exact thing.  Starts, idles (not for a long time), but dies as soon as you give it gas.  Same happens when you put the choke on. 
      So...not the carb
      Thought maybe vacuum petcock was bad, but there's no gas in the vacuum line going from petcock to carb and gas flows freely when on prime.  I even plugged the vacuum line at both the petcock and carb end and tried to run it with valve set to prime.  Gas flows freely, but does exactly the same thing.  I unscrewed the screw at the bottom of the bowl and gas flows thru carb and out bowl drain line when petcock is set to prime.
      So, I'm assuming petcock is good?
      Checked spark plug and it wasn't fouled.  Reset gap, didn't help.  Will swap plugs between Ozarks tomorrow but I don't think that is it.
      Anyway, that he history and now you're all caught up.  Scratching my head.  Valves? These were bought at same time and have had little use.  Suggestions?
      Thanks!

      Hi I was riding my Honda the other day and I gave it gas for about a quarter-mile just flooring it and then it started to lose power. I pushed it about a mile home which was a pain in the butt but when I got home It still had gas, compression and spark. Do you think the timing jumped possibly?

      Answer to your first question ...
      YES, you can drive it anywhere.. on highways.. back roads... neighborhoods.. off road... ANYWHERE ITS LEGAL FOR CARS or 4-Wheelers !

      This took a lot of work and effort with many divisions of the transportation dept. and through multiple attorneys advice.

      This is one of only two 4 wheelers that are street legal in the U.S.A. (Excluding Montana, parts of Arizona, and New York).

      Now for the details. 

      Its a 1989 Harley Davidson Frame and Engine.
      The motor is matching numbers to frame and title.
      The motor is 883cc beefed up to 1200cc.

      This bike has too many upgrades to list as you can see in the pictures.

      Please ask questions if needed.

      There is more than $20,000 in parts and man hours put into this bike.

      Additional Upgrades I will be starting this month:
      Turn Signal Relay and Dakota Digital Upgraded Speedometer

      This bike has Super Swamper Vampire tires in some pics (THESE ARE NOT STREET LEGAL TIRES) and do not come with bike.

      This bike has STI Black Diamond Tires with black STI3 rims in other pics. (THESE ARE DOT APPROVED TIRES AND ARE STREET LEGAL).

      This bike also has ROAD Street Tires too....

      I hope this is right form is not point me the right place.
      I have just brought a 07 king quad 700. Its got 14 rims with 28 tires. Can't remember what brand right now.
      What I would like is a programmer and a clutch kit for it. I'm used to diesel trucks really new to the fuel injected quads.
      Let me know what my bike needs thanks.
