Hello from Washington!

Recommended Posts

Name is Heidi from Olympia, WA. My better half stumbled onto this website and I thought I would join! I ride a 2008 Kawasaki KFX 450R and i ride it as much as possible. Love the sand and the woods! I have a 16 year old daughter who rides a Suzuki Ozark and I am looking to upgrade her to a sport 400...Suzuki or Honda. We also just got a new 38' 5th wheel toy hauler and will be taking it for it's maiden voyage to Florence at the end of the month!

I know what you mean, I thought I would join and here I am 1.5 years later still loving it. Check out our trail section. We currently only have 5 in there from Washington but maybe you could add some more!

I love it here. My boyfriend lives in Port Orchard. He has the same bike as me only black...

We like to ride in Oregon in the sand mostly but have done Tahuya once. Once Capitol Forest opens for riding we will be there as well. It really is beautiful country up here!

I love the Oregon Dunes! We went down last month over the President's Day weekend....had soooo much fun. We met a great group of people who we have become friends with. We will be heading down again on the 27th. I just can't wait! There is just something about having the Pacific Ocean as your backdrop...

I will do just that! We are participating in the annual SOLV beach cleanup. Should be a good time.

I so want to go to the Dunes. My nephew lives in Seattle and rides Winchester and Coos Bay and said that is amazing.

SSSSoooooo, I bought a new quad today!!! I got a new 08 LTZ 400 black for my daughter. I am not going to tell her, it's a surprise. I figure when we get down to Florence next weekend and open the garage on the toy hauler she will see for herself :) Think she will be stoked?

Welcome Tink, I too am from western WA. Bonney Lake to be exact. Hope you enjoy the site, we are here to help anytime you need something. Being so close, I have to wonder, do you ever ride at Stradeline?, formerly Thurston County ORV.

    • 1997 Kawasaki Bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) Runs Bad

      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

      Hi, Im Mike. My buddies call me Mikey. I was a member here a few years ago and couldnt remember my user name or what email account I used. After several different tries, I gave up and reregistered.
      Born and raised in the south, but I now live in Woodland Washington and ride a 2006 Suzuki LTZ400. I got into quads in 2006. Ive owned a few quads since, including a couple Honda 450Rs, 250EX, a Blaster and a 400EX. So far, Im pretty happy with the Z. My preference is riding trails in the woods, but the the Oregon dunes are fun too. Riding with my buddies is cool, but for me nothing compares to riding with my 9 year old son who rides a 2003 Honda Sportrax 90, and 2009 Yamaha TTR 50 dirt bike which is starting to get too small for him. My son prefers 2 wheelers and I prefer quads. Recently, I picked up a little 2002 TTR 125 dirt bike (shoulda got a 250) for myself so we could both be on two wheels if hes on his dirt bike that day.
      Anyway, I love to ride. Its like the ultimate escape. Riding quads is my 2nd biggest passion in life. My son is my 1rst and foremost passion in life and what matters more than anything in this world. I dont have my son full time. Those of you who are with your kids, be greatful. Part time is hard. Im all about my kid. Riding or playing with Legos. Doesnt matter. We go ride whenever we can. Watching his skills progress is so cool. I also have a small practice track at my place on 2 acres for me and him to play around on.
      Thanks for reading my autobiography lol
