Desert-Hawk

So Long Old friend

Recommended Posts

In the last five years I've had the pleasure to ride what

I believe is one of the finest ATV's My '05 'Desert Edition'

Honda Rubicon. From the desert flats in 100° heat to elevations

of 10,000ft, in temps of 19° Through boulder infested dried up

river beds and wash's and a occasional run in fender deep snow

not once did I have to walk or be towed back to camp !

This has allowed me to rack up 9,200 issue free miles and the

opportunity to ride and meet with some fantastic people across

the state of Arizona and points beyond...it's been a most excellent

adventure to say the least.

At this point in my life I have come to the reality that I'm not as

young as I once was and the need for an IRS suspension was becoming

more attractive after a long day of exploring in the desert southwest.

So I'd like to present My 2009 "Desert Hawk" Edition Rincon

My goal for this unit was to have all of the thing's that made the Ruby

the ultimate (for me) ATV with just a bit more snort and a cushy ride.

With this idea and information I've read on all of the site's I visit

I do believe my goal has been accomplished !

Nothing like this can be achieved with out some help so I'd like to

give a shout out to the Staff of Coyote Honda in Avondale, AZ.

ARIZONA'S LEVEL 5 Honda Powerhouse Dealer.

Left to Right Parts Manager Matt Service Manager John, And Master Technician

Dave who kept the Ruby in top running condition since 2005.

This will be the last time I'll ever see this on the Rincon !

Thanks BuckBilly :wink:

Ajmboy, Not yet and with a few things coming up this weekend

it's looking like next week :aargh:

A buddy of mine has two '08's and I've racked up a few miles on his

the thing I'll really be watching is the off camber areas.

      Quad starts fine and revs fine in my back yard. On a test ride it falters badly. No power. I have cleaned and rebuilt the carb, cleaned the fuel tank, installed new fuel filter, changed fuel line and cleaned the air filter. Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a 2008 loncin desert storm that wont stay running.
      When it ran it ran rough and backfired a lot.
      Now it will only start with throttle and there's a lot of unburned fuel (white smoke), there's also compression comming out the airbox. Is it the carburetor that is broken?

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      It’s been a pleasure serving all of you. I can not ride anymore. My illness has turned to the worst and I can barely walk anymore. I will still be here helping where I can. I might just get an oddsey and work the sh!t out of it. But I’m done. I didn’t want to be in this situation. But I have to take it. It’s been so much fun here guys!

      I don't have any lack of power on short hills, but when I get a long uphill road the ATV will slow way down to about 30KPH. If I work the throttle to give it more gas it just gets worse. Then if I let up on the throttle it runs better, but of course slows down even more. Am I looking at a carb problem, or what? I tried getting at the air screw, but can barely get a screwdriver in it and then can't adjust...won't turn at all. I cannot find a fuel adjustment screw anywhere I can see on the carb, and the manual does not show one. My plug is burning black, wouldn't that be too much fuel, and how do I correct that? It may be that the engine is flooding when I go uphill and throttle up.
