Thought I should say hello and introduce myself.

I am a motorcycle and atv tech from central Indiana. Getting back into quads after a 20yr. hiatus. Rode the wheels off a Kawasaki Mojave back then. Now that I"m older and slower I"m riding a 97 Polaris sport 400L and lovin it.:yes: The best part about the whole thing is that both my kids are riding with me. 15yo daughter(91 250 trailblazer) and my13yo son(06 predator90). We have so much fun together!

We have planned a spring trip to the dunes at Silver Lake and we are all exited. Have heard it has changed some since I was last there.(1989) We will be riding on Mon. and Tues. June 6&7, hopefully avoiding the weekend crowds. Cant wait!

Thats all for now.

Thanks.

Rob.

P.S. Really enjoying the site!

Welcome! Good to see you've come back to the sport. I can relate to that, done the same thing. I ride & camp in the summer with my son(10) and nephew (13), and I really enjoy time spent with them as well. My son is allready telling me he wishes it was summer holidays so we could go on some riding trips. Makes you feel like a kid again yourself!

      My Yamaha Big Bear shifts through all the gears good, goes into reverse smoothly, but when i go to get out of reverse it takes a lot of effort to get it back to first gear, and even then it does not go very smoothly, have to pull up on the pedal really hard, anyone else ever had this problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

      Im finishing up on the Big Bear, just tying up some loose ends and its done.
      My next project I actually bought first, but the Big Bear seemed like it was more challenging so tackled it first. Now looking the Eiger over im not so Sure.
      I bought this Suzuki Eiger, almost a year ago, rear wheels locked up, but it ran fairly well. It was so bad that it took 3 Big Guys to get it on my trailer. All the parts were there it ran. He wanted 600.00 and I offered him 400.00. a plus it had the original Kei Hin carb on it.
       
       

       

      You might ask, why would you want something so ugly, it is often referred to as the ugly sister to the King Quad. I actually like the Eiger I have this one and also a 2007. I have riden them before, they are strong a true beast, I am a fairly Big Guy 6' 3" 195 pds, and it fits me good, but what I really like is the wide foot print and low center of gravity , not so easy to turn over.
      So I get it home and I don't have 3 big guys to help me get it off my trailer, but I do have a John Deere, hooked it up and drug it off the trailer,an afterthought I should have used a couple of furniture moving dolly's under the rear wheels, oh well. Maybe I didn't ruin the already stuck rear end or transmission I was sure which, I was fairly sure it wasn't locked brake drums, after all that they should have popped free.
       This is what I have done so far. It's off the trailer I took the drive shaft bolts loose, they were tight, had to get a 3 foot cheater, I thought they were going to break. Got them out and now I can roll it around. I checked the shifter, this is a manual shift Eiger LTF400F. Foot shifter moved didn't seem to be going to any gear, but it was hard to tell, the shifter on the tank which has Low, High, and Reverse did not move. I took it apart and oiled it up good still wouldn't move. Thought the cable was stuck so I unhooked it from the linkage and cable moved freely. Looked at the linkage closely and it was stuck. I tapped it lightly, very lightly , with small hammer and it freed up kind of, but still stiff. I could tell this side cover had been off before and put back very sloppily. This is kind of where i left off except the plastics are all off, you might have seen me working on them in another post. Nothing I have done so far has helped, my next step was to take the side cover off the engine to see what's going on in there, but installing my Granite counter top, numerous honeydews, and the big bear kind of slowed down my progress. I did determine that it wasn't the rear end, that's actually what I thought it was going to be. If anyone has any ideas, they would be appreciated.
