Tink

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 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!

Hey, I loved it too. The Olympic Pennisula is one of my favorite places. I had friends that rode at the dunes in Oregon.

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.

      Motor starts right up, but when I open it up past quarter throttle it bogs way down while ridding, the longer it runs the worse it gets. If I just leave it in neutral and  give it full throttle it revs up and down. 
      Back history:
      Bike sat for 3 years,
      Installed new plug, cleaned the fuel tank, took it to a shop and had the carburetor gone though.
      Picked up from shop, motor bogged down first day and barely got me back to the truck an 1 mph.
      Took back to shop after a month I was told it had a bad plug, I told him I just replaced it.
      Got quad home and it is doing the same thing!!!!!!!!! 
       
      Thanks in advance for your support!
       
      The carburetor has recently been gone through by a shop

      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?

      Let me start with I have about 30 years of ATC experience, but not much with stuff made after 1988.  Some, but I'm mechanically inclined so it's all good.  I"m rehabbing a 1997 Bayou 220 to send back into the wild and the mechanicals are now all good, just working on making the electrical system...electric.  Right now, I have no power on the white wire as tested directly on the plug at the starter solenoid.  I'm assuming that wire is supposed to be hot any time it's attached to a battery?  The genius that had it before snipped a couple wires and inserted a fairly heavy push button for electric start bypassing the electrical system. I think i've corrected everything north of the solenoid but the white wire has me stumped.  Is my assumption that this should always be hot with a hot battery correct?  Does this indicate a broken circuit in the starter solenoid?  Relay was also bad and wired incorrectly, but that's resolved and I can make the relay click bypassing the solenoid and connector, directly giving the white wire 12V.  Thoughts?

      I have a 2005 Suzuki Vinson 500cc automatic 4X4. I can only shift it in to park & High gear, it will not go in low or reverse, what's the issue & the fix?

      I'm curious what all the ladies ride on this site and why!
      I ride a 2008 Yamaha Rhino 700. Just added a new roll cage, dual exhaust and some other things. Here are a few pics:


      I chose the Rhino because my arms and wrists get way too tired on a quad. I haven't tried a bike, but, I don't think my coordination would be good enough to handle that!
      I LOVE my Rhino though!!!!!!! It's the perfect machine for me.
      So, how about you????

      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
