if a quad engine is new and not broken in yet would it be bad if i put a slip on and new jetts right away? or should i wait intil i brake it in then put stuff on?

I would wait until you rack up a few miles then start modding. Gives the motor a chance to cycle through, and break in. Make sure to change oil and maintenance your machine according to manufacturer specs.

With these new motors, it is more beneficial to ride them hard from day one...

Read this, the method has been proved on Dyno. And I'm still running stock piston and rings after 3 hard years.

But I agree, I would wait to upgrade.

I also agree, I would wait to upgrade. Not that I think there is any real harm to be done, many machines come off the showroom floor with add-ons already installed by the dealer. It just seems to me like it would be best to let things settle in before you start changing stuff.

So then are you guys saying that after Rebuilding a Motor you are supposed to put Stockers back on and break it in???

That is a Great Question by the way,,,,One that I dont think I have ever heard

I would not go as far as to put stock stuff back on after a rebuild, I am just saying that I personally would just break the bike in before I did any mods, not because I think it would be bad for the machine, but because I like to get a feel for the machine in stock form before I decide what I am going to do to it. You could even make the argument that it would be better to do every mod you plan on doing to the bike before you break it in, because it would be a good idea to break in the new parts with the rest of the motor.

Correct, like I said before, some dealers add items like exhaust and even rev boxes to brand new machines. If there was any real danger in it, I am sure they would not do it themselves. I just said I would wait because of my own personal prefference.

      I cannot get this drum off, I already have another drum and backplate on order because I've ruined this one trying to get it off. Completely rusted to splines. I cant fit any hub or wheel puller known to mankind onto these lug studs to try and pull it off, I'm really running out of ideas.

      Haven't got a service manual for this yet so I'm flying by the seat of my pants I made myself a shifter extension to go up by the gas tank took my foot shifter off to weld it and now when I put it back on I don't seem to be able to find neutral. Is there some asinine reason that you have to do something internally when you change or remove the foot shifter? It was a simple take off weld put back on and dog bite my pecker it's not working. I hope this is something simple I've done and that's something I need brain surgery for. Cheers fellas I know y'all will have the right answers

      So I picked up a Cannibal that has been sitting for many years. I wonder if anyone can tell me where that vacuum port is on the engine. I’ve found the one to the air box, pressure regulator, and ecu but can’t seem to locate the one on the engine. Thanks in advance for any help.

      Anyone have any thoughts on the early Quad Sports?  My very first ATV was a 1985 LT230S,  me and a buddy purchased them brand new in 1985, rode those little bikes till the wheels fell off,  I would like to find one to restore for nostalgic reasons and to teach my 14 yo son to ride.  Nice meeting you all!
