just a word of advice...I bought my first ATV...1996 KingQuad 250...from an ebay ad that expired.....paid 1900.00... a little high but it had the winch and plow I & wanted it to plow a driveway....it started on purchase and when I got it home...got worse in short order and then only would start w/t much prayer...tried to "look into" problems....ended up in the shop where I found starter clutch shot (199.00) due to diaphragm dumping fuel into system and some more carb problems....553.08....I did call seller and he said it ran when I bought but he'd look into maybe sharing expense but I'm not holding my breath...so just be careful out there...unit runs great now but that was an expensive lesson.....STAY SAFE.....

A thorough test ride and once over is a must when buying anything used. Also, before you go to check it out, tell the seller that you want it to be cold when you get there. If someone knows there are problems, they may have the machine warmed up for you when you get there, this may temporarily hide some problems. I hope, that the guy makes it right, if he doesn't I would definately give him hell.

      Looking for a used crankshaft (cheap) for a 2003 Honda Recon or 250EX. Several model years will work. I only need the timing chain sprocket, but I can remove it from the old crank.

      Hello! I picked up a YFM400 and I would love to talk shop with knowledgeable co-owners, and I'd love input about the machine from anyone here who clearly knows more than I do! Cheers from NY

      Hi all just started to mount a winch on my kingquad 400 using a kfi mounting plate and the holes don’t line up. The winch is Rhino 3000lb not sure if you have them in the States they’re an Amazon job. I was wondering can I just drill the mount out to make it fit, the holes are fine depth wise it’s just the width trouble is it’s not out a great deal and as the holes are countersunk they will overlap I don’t want a loose winch. Dunno if you can make sense of all that but any help would be appreciated thanks.
