I have heard that the valves have to adjusted fairly often.

Could be rings, valves, or a head gasket. It is a bit odd that you would be burning oil in a quad that is that new. Have you been doing services regularly? If so, and it is still under warranty, I would let Yamaha deal with it.

i would first check oil level

you need to run quad for a 3 minutes and let sit for 2 minutes before checking stick

excsessive on off throttle use can cause fuel to run through rings and elevating level if so replace oil

      this is for any who knows the seattle area. i heard of a place called "riders lake", or at least i think that was the name, for a place to ride with lots of mud. i was told it was around Sultan. If anyone knows of this place, could you give me info on where it is and if its legal to ride. i will be heading over that way for a meeting and i was wondering if it woul be worth loading up the quad and hauling it over the mountain,
      Thanks

      I've got a beater 84 honda trx that instantly starts smoking and gets really hot  from it looks like the exhaust pipe coming out of the motor on the right side of the machine. When I fire it up it starts getting hot. Any suggestions would be awesome! Thanks so much

      Can anyone point me to a good set of instructions for changing front diff oil on a 1987 Suzuki LT4WD? I can almost guess which bolts are drain & fill... but I've been wrong before... 😆 
      I found some partial posts on other forums and they linked out to dead images and whatnot. Any help appreciated. 
      This thing is running pretty good, got the front brakes back to life, electric start works fine, seat cover fixed up, plastics stitched back together...

      Hi bought this quad with a few leaks and other issues which thanks to excellent advice from these forums I thought I’d sorted them till I washed it down and found oil underneath. 
      It is coming from the seal around the gear changer pedal as it looks like someone has banged the housing flat on one side. Knowing how easily aluminium is broken I don’t wanna risk tapping it back into shape. Would a new seal fit or would the distortion of the housing render it useless.
      thanks in advance

      I have bought a 1996 suzuki king quad 300 and I have noticed that it smokes but I have put oil in it and plenty of gas had to fix shifter bc the nuts and bolts came out somewhere. I have had to replace the wire for the starter but now when I try to start it it wont idle at all and when it does run it smokes really bad like a whitish blue I guess, and it likes to stall a lot. So anybody can help me out please and thank you
