Trying To Help Some Kids ( Help Fuel The Passion )

4 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

We are trying to start a small group of youth riding ATVs to show them the outdoors and give them a taste of something they can do other than just sit on the couch, play video games, watch TV and text message their friends.

Our motivation to start this project has been the increase of juvinile crimes, vandalism, drinking & drugging that has been rising in our neck of the woods.

We are trying to find people who have broken but fixable or old atvs that they no longer use that they could donate to this project. We could also use any information you can give us on ATV junk yards or random trashed ATVs that people might not be using and are just letting go to waste.

I know this isn't a nation wide search, but I was hoping maybe this would draw some attention to what we are trying to do in our area and possibly get a spark going in others to help in their community some way.

If you want some more information about how you could help us ( in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma or Louisiana ) please consider dropping us a line at [email protected] or Help Fuel The Passion.

Thank you for reading this post and for any help or information you can give us.

Thanks Admin for allowing me to post this!

That is excellent man, I wish you and those kids the best of luck. I think that ATV riding is a terriffic way to get kids interested in something besides what is getting them in trouble. A good friend of mine just kicked a bad drinking habit. He turned to riding instead, and now he is doing much better. You can't get him off his Blaster for nothin', but he hasn't had a drink in about 8 months since he got it.

      Common misconception is that you need to return to the dealer for an exact
      oil filter for your ATV.  Aftermarket companies actually make filters for
      the O.E.M. market. Why go to the dealer when you can get the exact filter you
      need at your local auto parts store such as CARQUEST or NAPA. Wix corporation
      makes ATV filters that you'll find in most of your popular autopart stores. 
      In most cases, you'll pay allot less! 
      WIX is a leader in the filter business.  Check out this
      ATV FILTER CATALOG.  Remember, you can
      right down the filter # and have it cross-referenced at your local autopart
      store if they don't carry WIX, CARQUEST, or NAPA.
      You can also click on the part # for the filter image.

      I have a 1995 Yamaha 350 big bear and I am having trouble starting it. You can hear the solenoid click but starter motor won't engage. Should I be looking at the starter motor or solenoid?  Any suggestions are appreciated.
