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.

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      I have permission to ride 60+ acres that vary in technical aspects. Let's make something happen. We have off street parking and it's a ton of fun.

      New to the site and I'm looking for some places to (LEGALLY) ride. I know a few places not too far from me but getting caught and over 1k in fines and criminal trespassing charges isn't on the top of my list.

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?

      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.
