Hello all I'm new to the site. I'm asking for suggestions on building my 1999 warrior. I picked it up for a song at $200. nothing wrong with it other than it needs tires and a tune up. I have about $800. To put into it, other than tires and an exhaust any suggestions. This is my first sport quad I'm used to utility quads. Thanks for the suggestions
I have my suzuki 160 engine tore down and i am redoing all too end gaskets and rings and maybe gonna do values. So i pulled the values and the exhuast value is pretty bad. It is probably a 1/16 inch of hit and miss pieces of carbon up about 3/4inch of the stem. and the intake has some hit and miss chucks off carbon circle part. The piston doesnt have much. It has a layer but not even a complete layer. The head also has some a good layer. So how do guys say i should go about cleaning it off. My uncle said to use a wire wheel but i am pretty uncomfortable with that. I read spraying water in the carb after i put it back together. I also read a scotch bright and carb cleaner after i reassemble.
Then there is always sea foam.
So what do say i should do. Shindy values are only $25. I am trying to stay low cost and i am planing to sell this after im done but i want wanna half ass it and screw some one over. Thanks guys.
Hey there, i have been reading lately about making an ATV or UTV street legal. Ive run across more info than i knew was out there for several utvs, and some side by sides, the Polaris RZR seems to be a big hit with the street legal crowd.
Personally, i can say that i think the Kawasaki Bayous, Honda Rincon (or Recon?) are great choices too. I wanted to hear your thoughts on what you find to be the best for paved and hard packed gravel roads?
So what would you build for the road? Id love to know something thats got good mileage, and good handling on the roads.
For those that don't know me my name is Mickey Dunlap owner of Four Stroke Tech. In the 80's I was one of the few that made a living racing 3 wheelers and in 1983 after winning 5 races against Team Honda they started helping me out in trade for being able to use my name in there win adds. In 1984 they gave me a full ride and this was one of my last ATC 200x's that I just got last Dec. on a trip to Washington state where I grew up. I flew out there to pick up my grand fathers 1969 Ford F-100 my mom sold me. I knew of this 200x for 20 years but the guy would never sell it to me,but my mom sweet talked him into selling it back to me.
On my way back to PA. I stopped in Or. to pick up two more of my old racers from Powroll perforemance my eingine builder back then.The guy painted it Powroll's blue and white,but I just started restoring in back to the way it was when I raced it for Honda.
