Sparrows

Here might be a silly question.

Recommended Posts

Last time i rode, the ATV park was mud infested, and i mean, the roads, trails and everything. it was a slop, i power washed after( TRIED lol ) i have this hard clay on the tires, that is just a pain in the ass to try to get off, is there any spray or anything that can eat away at this? i think it's clay-ish mud? its light brown, tan. i can take pictures if needed, it's not to much it just makes me angry.

i use the pressure washer with the highest pressure nozzle and it cleans it great. makes it look black again. if that doesnt work then go to walmart and go to the tire spray with dale earnhardt on the can. sorry but i cant think of the name of the stuff. we used that on our tires when our pressure washer was dead and it also worked great.

that kinda slop is usual in georgia.

Once you get it clean, spray WD-40 on the tire walls and under the fender, the WD-40 will form a film and the mud will just fall off...

Pull it out BEFORE the snow melts!!! driving in the snow cleans just as well as a presure washer and is the only thing that will get the mud off your tires PLUS its WAY more fun!!!

WD-40 works good for before, as does cooking spray.....afterwards you can use Purple Power or if you wanna spend the extra money Simple Green...

Just make sure when you're spraying WD-40 or anything like it you don't get it on your seat...that'd make for a slick ride

      Hey Guys,
      I'm pretty new to ATV's and never owned a Polaris before. Lately I have noticed that it is very hard to shift from Park to any other gear. Is there an adjustment, or is that just the way they are?

      My ranger crew 700 is hard to shift and gets locked into forward. When trying to shift into reverse we have to shut engine off. Shift then restart. Checked linkage and gears are fine. The RPMs arent really that high but did notice a little improvement when we lowered it. Did notice the throttle cable looks damaged. Could this be the issue?

      Hello everyone, back from a crazy few months of riding, hunting and fishing! So I’ve added a storage bag to one of my bikes and loaded it up pretty good before we went out into the woods/trails etc.  My son questioned me and said what do we need all that junk for?  I told him you never know  maybe a flat tire water etc.
      Needless to say that junk came in handy.   So my question to everyone that hits the trails is what do you have or recommend to maybe take with you before you go? And what would be the one most important thing that’s a must have? 
      And also any recommendations on a  storage bag that’s not so costly and performs the best? I like my bag but not very good .

      Title pretty much says it all.   After fixing my throttle body I had a look at the tires.  on my last ride my buddy hit a branch on his side wall with enough force to jar the quad off track.,  no Damage but I thought I would review mine.
      The discussion about what to bring with on the trail also got me thinking about my tire health.
      It looks like my rear tires are older, the front ones only really seem to have some knob wear and are in good shape.  I absolutely can't get new tires this year, but I still want to ride it and reduce my risk.  I am thinking of getting a couple of tubes for my rears sort of pre-emptively change them instead of having to do an urgent tube install on the trail.
      Then next year I will get 2 new rears and probably the year after get to new front leaving me 2 decent spares.
       
      I figure $50 in tubes is decent to reduce the risk until I can spend on new tires.
       
      Thoughts?

      Greetings,
      I have a 1998 Yamaha big bear 350, new to this. When its cold it is very difficult to shift. Once its warm its ok, however, my old feet don't like the shifting. I saw on ebay a hand shifter conversion kit. Any advice, I live in the Low Country of SC no hills, I use the machine around the farm for corning and scouting.
      Thanks,
      Jim

      Long story short, I have an lt160 with a quad racer swingarm. It needs new front pivot bearings. Whoever swapped the swingarm used pipe and stacks of washers to space it but it still seemed to have quite a bit of play. My question is how would I go about spacing it more "legit"?. It's just going to be a beater for around the farm but I don't want it totally cob jobbed. From the looks of it, it's just a matter of aligning it, measuring and finding something to shim the gaps. Correct me if I'm wrong or if there's a better or proper way to go about this. Also not sure what I would use for spacers. Any help/tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Found and 1986 lt160f that has had the head removed. Firstly, the engine has sat outside in the elements for a long period of time. The timing chain is rusty but their appears to little or water in the oil. Do you think that it is worth salvaging and if so, what would you do to motor to remove the rust. Thanks
