I agree with the law about requiring ASI safety course before riding an ATV

Recommended Posts

I agree with this because the first time I took my new four wheeler out years ago, I had no experience in riding. I was going slow and still turned the 4-wheeler over and had a few bruises and was lucky to not get hurt any worse. So it doesn't matter how slow or how fast. It has to do with technique. So everyone please take a safety course for yourself, your family and the ATV community.

I totally disagree, because the way they are handled in the area I live. They treat people like crap and have them so damn scared of an atv the get hurt because of panic attacks.

I took a course when I first got my quad. Honestly I took the course because Honda paid me $100. No, I didn't learn anything new but the others in the class with me were all newbies. The amount of information the instructor supplied and the quality was amazing, he was very patient with everyone.

So I think they are a wonderful thing for newbs. I will definitely sign my kids up for one...when the time comes.

BB, I wish safety courses were held everywhere in the same manor that they are held here. With the right teacher, it can be a fun learning experience.

We must improve the safety of ATV riding, those who oppose us will use it to limit or close trails.

One problem with that. You can't control stupid people. Look at how SOME people have

little or no respect for the land we ride on. Private and public lands alike. When we went to Leota , Mich to ride , I could not beleive the disrespect some people had for the land. From the parking lot to the trails. That is another thing training needs to focous on to. Not just safety.

BB it is just like gun control. The only people effected by the laws that get imposed are the law abiding people. It doesn't stop the idiot or the criminal and those are the people that get all this started anyway.

      I have just ordered a Suzuki King Quad 300 which should be here this week - it is described as "with slow running needing attention"  I am as a matter of course going to put a new spark plug in, change the oil and oil filter and blow out the air filter with compressed air - anything else I should consider?  Also, the headlights do not work - I want to change them out for LED ones anyway though.

      '11 Grizz 700 here.  Since I've got some warm weather these next couple days I've decided to start the bike after about a year of just sitting.  Took out the plug and sprayed a good amount of fogging oil on top of the piston to help lubricate things.  After about a minute of letting it soak I stuck my air line tubing in to suck out the excess, but it seems like I didn't get nearly as much in return.  Repositioned the tube enough so that everything that was gonna come out pretty much did.  I'll probably shoot some compressed air down the plug hole before doing the start just to make sure it's all out, as well as cranking it for a second before putting the plug back in.   How long would it take for a bit of standing fogging oil to seep past the piston rings, and where would it go?  I guess into the engine oil?  The oil was fairly new the last time it was started but I'm sure it could stand to be changed after sitting for so long.  If much of this fogging oil got into the engine oil should I do the change before the startup?

      I have a Chinese Hybird 250 or that's what I was told it was. I found 17 numbers on the frame. Will these numbers tell me exactly what it is that I have? (I know that its a 2006 from a plate on the front)

      I have a 110cc atv not sure of a brand its a Chinese model. I put on a new harness with cdi solenoid and all those. I have put a new starter on, and carburetor. I bypassed the start button cause it was just making the solenoid click. with the new button switch the atv will crank but not start. I tried to jump the solenoid and it did nothing. I am stumped. also I noticed gas leaking from the carburetor and when I took the filter off there was gas in it. I cleaned the carburetor and nothing was stuck or clogged. can someone help me out.
