Hey guys! Stoked to be here because ive found its pretty hard to get help for mini quads
I recently bought a mini quad (it's a piece of poop so i have no clue the make) and it ran perfectly fine. I was running it a few weeks ago all day and it worked fine and the next day when i went to start it, the kickstart bar was super hard to push down but i could still do it, then it would skip and finish off hard to push down.
I have fairly intermediate mechanic abilities so i was able to pull off the cover and start playing around. it seems the kickstart spring is fine but i noticed a bunch of metal shavings. long story short i posted pictures and took a video of how things are kind of running. i assume the gears started grinding and now they wont catch fully, hence the skipping?
Also, im aware the main gear on the left has broken teeth, i found out the hard way when i tried to take off the nut and the teeth broke.

I finally found an awsome app for your phone that shows you on a map all the trails near your location. You can read or add reviews, look at picts...etc
Its called: atv escape
When i put power on it takes couple seconds and difflock light starts to burn but His is 2wd. I opened the front servomotor unit but no help. Fuses are ok, Relays are ok. Power is on limpmode when the difflight burns.. Whatta hell is problem. Will it help if i brake the light from the dash...
It’s been a year of swapping and fixing and swapping and fixing and swapping….
Last year I bought a KFX80 mouse condominium for $500,
fixed it and swapped for a Blaster,
fixed that and swapped for a LT230s,
straightened that out and swapped for an ‘07 KX 85,
cleaned THAT up and traded it for a clapped out LTZ400 with OMF bead locks, ELKA shocks, HotCams, ProTaper bars,
and a serious case of “PO had no clue what they were doing”.
I recently posted about finishing up that LT160/230,
well almost finished - timing was off for some reason, but before I could get it figured out I found someone to swap it with for a 94 XR200R with a strange ticking in the head.
Replaced it’s timing chain and guides, re-tensioned, popped out the valves and cleaned them all up, all back together and the ticking persists. Flipping thru the Clymer manual that came with it I found a stacked head gasket tucked inside. And saw a green paper one on the bike. 💡
So anyway, I traded it to someone more inclined toward two-wheeled adventures for an awfully clapped out DVX400 with a lot of Alba’s finest red anodized aluminum ding dongs all over it. And a Houser chromoly stem! AND a big bore kit (JE Piston).
PO couldn’t get it to run, which turned out to be a combination of 4 stripped threads in the cam journals, and a “twist n’ tape” job on the damn stator wires. 😳😝🤣
After a few weeks of wrenching and part swapping and fixing and sweating and swearing and parting out - I nearly have a drivable quad… and a pretty damned nice one for my tastes at least.
Thinking about sinking a few hundred Kold Kutters into this extra set of tires and having a go at the ice this winter
I own a few older quads mix of kinds a couple of Yamahas, a Honda, can-am a Kawasaki, they are older quads but in good shape the question of the day is....... what's the best way to polish up the plastic?
I have found that Dollar General mold remover is good to get the black stuff off the plastic works good, but was wondering how you polish up the plastics on yours.
