Hey I have a 97 bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) that i bought for 1000 last June and sunk another 1000 into it already. When i went to look at it, the seller had warmed it up before hand (he was riding it when I got there). it ran good so i bought it and took it home that evening... next morning it wouldn't hardly start. I discovered the carb was clogged, there was chunks of rust in the fuel valve, the choke lever was missing and other things. I have since cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel valve and gas lines and cleaned out the gas tank and cap.
Enough background on it, the problem is this: It floods if i push it past half throttle in 4th and 5th gear even going downhill and shifting correctly. It also has to idle and warm up when you first start it which is really annoying now that its cold... It also smokes blue smoke for about 15 seconds when started cold- does not smoke at all once warm but the exhaust still smells like burnt metal. A friend told me that it didn't have enough compression. I also found out that the valves are a common cause for low compression on Kawasakis.. I have never adjusted valves before- the most I've ever got into a engine was a head gasket on a riding mower so I'm new to this. My goal is to get this bike running and starting cold like a top- should i tear down and rebuild the top end? What should i try first? I tore the carb apart and rebuilt it and fiddled with the air screw and nothing changed. I also ordered a compression test kit that should be coming in soon.
Ive also considered just selling it for like $500 and taking the hit- Id rather not sink too much more into this machine.. lol
ARCTIC CAT BRANDED SIDE-BY-SIDES AND ATVS ARE COMING BACK
Passion can change people. Change minds. And in the end, it can take us back to where our family has been all along. Because Arctic Cat fans and powersports enthusiasts demanded it, the Arctic Cat® name will be returning to ATVs and Side-by-Sides in 2019.
With a legacy of innovation, performance and fun, our legendary lineup of ATVs, side-by-sides and snowmobiles are built to take you anywhere you want to go — from carving up mountain snow on a Mountain Cat Alpha One in British Columbia, to flying over the dunes in Glamis in a Wildcat™ XX. And these high-performance vehicles are still made proudly in Thief River Falls, Minnesota.
This is a strange question maybe. I just finished cleaning my old barn find Suzuki. I think it's a 1985. LT230 shaft drive. Started it up and other than making some carb adjustments (well, I think that's all I have to do) it runs fine.
But as I drove it around the yard I noticed that it is hard to steer. The front tires seem like they are barely touching the ground! The handle bar moves fine and the wheels turn, but the tires don't grip the grass.
When I lean forward as far as I can the tires actually bite into the grass and turn the bike. When I sit on the bike it just plows straight ahead.
Has anyone seem anything like this?
I wonder if the back tires are too small, causing the bike to lean backwards. Does anyone have the specs on what size tires I should have?
Thanks for any help provided...

Looking for some recommendations on an ATV for my Daughters-in-law to ride when they visit with my sons. We ride mostly woods trails. It needs to be fairly easy to ride, automatic is't necessary but shifting should be forgiving and it needs to be under $2000. I have a Banshee and a Polaris Sportsman 500HO now.
One DIL is tiny, 5' and about 100lbs, the other is about 5'8" and 130lbs. I'm concerned that steering on the Sportsman may require too much upper body strength and the Banshee is definitely not a beginner's ride.
I'm thinking about a Warrior (may be under powered) or a Honda 400EX but I'd love to hear what others might suggest?
Went for a ride at Murdock Basin, which is on the South side of the Uinta Mountains. I hadn't been there in about 13 yrs & I had forgotten just how rocky this area is. I did ride some trails I hadn't ridden before & even found one short ATV trail.
I had the "Check Engine - Transmission Signal Fault" message, but the bike never did go into limp mode, so I just kept riding & a little while later, the message disappeared, so all is good. I did check the wires when I got home & put some dielectric grease on the connection thou.
Over all, it was a great day of rid'in, I hope you enjoy the video.
Hey I just moved here from Philadelphia, pa. And I'm looking for people to ride with. I live in Altoona, pa. I have a 2013 raptor 700 all stock.
