I burried my quad up to axels in some muck tonight. Hooked winch up to a tree, and when started to pull out it just drained the battery and wanted to kill engine. I had to use a come-along to get out. I have a champion 2500lb. winch. I don't know if I need a better winch or better battery. Also when plowing snow, it weakens battery quickley raising and lowering plow. First winch ever had, any advise appreciated. Worst part is, I didn't get any pictures.... Thanks...

Sounds like the stator is not charging properly. Are you running head lights when using the whinch? The battery might be going bad and not holding a good charge.

      Hello everyone, I’m new to this forum. I have a 98 king quad 300, I cannot get it to run right. It will start up and run for a little bit but then it starts sputtering when you give it throttle. It appears to me that it is getting to much fuel. 
      this is what I have done to it: new carburetor, new fuel filter, adjusted the valves.

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!

      Got a 04 Sportsman 500 that wasnt running- owner said it needed a stater and a new battery.  It ran rough (been sitting out in the weather for a while).  A friend and I started by adding a new battery and it would start barely with the choke and his hand over the air-filter.  I decided to install the new battery in the holder on the side.  we had it on the rack because the old on was still in the bike.  I tried to be nifty by turning the battery to put the terminals in an easier spot to get to, but forgot to reverse the cables too.  In a sentence, I reversed the positive and negative on the battery like a dummy.  When we discovered my mistake and corrected it, we turned on the bike, but the display did not light up and the key did not turn on the starter.  jumping the solenoid worked the starter, so we thought the solenoid just burned up when I reversed the pos and neg...  new solenoid and no difference.  what have I burned up?  Also, the shifter does not seem to do anything in the trans.  it slides back and forth like its stripped in the trans.  any help would be appreciated!!
      I think the biggest issue right now is the electrical.
