new guy from CO...

Recommended Posts

just thought id drop a line to say hey to everyone...im 30 from colorado and ride a 01' 400ex and a 87' lt250r quadracer...have a shared 300ex for the family as well. anyhow, this site seems super cool and i cant wait to meet some of the great folks on here. drop me a line if your in need of any help when wrenchin' ive been workin on my own bikes and quads since i was 10 :wink: and have a huge service manual resource online as well.

got the 400ex for $500 totally torn down and disassembled...kid took it apart and didnt know how to put it back together then lost his job...guess he said it was smokin'...he had the bottom end in 5 different crates...lol

the 250r we picked up for $400 seized...lower rod bearing thrust washer...we've put a lot of cash into em' so far though for only getting them this summer...now that the 400 is completely sound and brand new enginewise, im thinkin about gettin some nerfs, bumper, exhaust, maybe a cam in a bit...damn things are money pits, thats for sure

That is really cool to meet a local. We love Rainbow Falls. My wife is not a fan of off camber stuff so we have never really done 717. How much snow is in that area? We were thinking of taking the Rhino to Rainbow falls soon.

not too much anymore, especially after the 50 degree temps today and tomorrow, mainly the north facing slopes are all that has snow...but yea, rainbow falls is a blast

btw, my wife is the exact same...hates the off camber stuff...hell im still tryin to get her to ride it like she owns it, its kinda funny, she just sits there like a limp noodle almost...im always like "get up on that tank like you own it"...shes gettin better though

LOL, My wife drives a Rhino when we take both machines... Would you be willing to meet up for a ride if we have a few more decent weekends?

Have you ever heard of C.O.R.E. out in Deer Trail off of I-70? I race out there, pretty cool place to play.

      I have a 2000 Polaris Xplorer with the 250 two stroke motor
      It does not want to start with the electric start, the motor cranks fast, the battery is good, and there is good spark when cranking. The engine starts perfect when using the pull cord, it even starts if I pull the cord slowly and starts with one pull. The engine idles smoothly once started. My wife says she needs the electric start to work.

      this is my 1st atva kawisaki bayou 300 4x4. its alot of fun. im in the process of retireing from farming so i have plenty of time and plenty of places to ride. iv been useing the beast for checking fences and my trap line. i wasnt sure how it would do in the snow, thats why i call it the beast, havent been stuck yet. looking at the map it appears im the only one on here from s dak. i guess s dak. is one of the few states you can lisence and drive atv's on public roads. not sure if ill do that yet or not. theres nothing i have to work on yet on the beast but im sure ill eventually be looking for a manual to make adjustments etc.
