Well, I got my first ATV when i was 11, it was a SunL. Chinese junk. Since then, I have picked up a 93 Blaster and a 95 Kawasaki Bayou. Both very nice quads.

back then i paid 2500.00 out the door,and had to wait for them to put it together,if you are going to jump on a 500,you had better know what the hell you are doing,mine was clocked at 107mph in a quarter mile at a drag strip,so they are not for the weak at heart,or a newer rider

Good to see you back outlander! :biggrin:

I started with a 1987 Yamaha Warrior when I was 23 or 24, which was 12 or 13 years ago for about $800. I rode some atvs that my friends had before that though. Then when I was 26 I bought a brand new Kawasaki Bayou 220. A couple of years later I went to a Yamaha Kodiak 450. Then a King Quad 700. Now have a Grizzly 660.

Got my first quad when I was 9, it was an '85 Suzuki LT 125 Quadrunner, I hated that thing. My dad had an '86 LT 230S Quadsport, I loved that one, inherited it a few years later when my dad got an '89 LT 250R Quadracer. By then, I was more interested in the Quadracer than my Quadsport.

At the age of 17 I purchased 85 honda 250 fourtrax. Sold it in 87 to buy a left over 86 250 suzuki quad racer. In 1988 sold quad racer because of lack of places to ride. After several years gone by it was time for new toys. In 2004 got Honda cbr 600 then to Ninja 750 and finally 07 Suzuki 750 gxr. New Years eve of this year bought 2 2003 Honda 300 sportraxs for family fun. Finding places to ride in pa for free is like hitting the lottery but not going to give up trying lol.

While we grew up they were always around, we had 3 wheelers, go-carts..home made, I'm actually surprised I went through my youth and had NO broken anything!

      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?

      Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor.
      In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber.
      Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut.
      If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video.
      Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.

      Gibbs Technologies Ltd, the world’s only High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology specialist, today unveiled a prototype of the first commercially viable high-speed amphibian Quadbike/All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) - Quadski.
      Quadski is the third demonstration of Gibbs’ HSA technology following the successes of the Aquada and the Humdinga. It is capable of travelling up to 50 mph (72 kph) on land and water and makes the transition at the flick of a switch.
      Commenting on the launch of the Quadski prototype, Alan Gibbs, the founder of UK based Gibbs Technologies Ltd. said, “Quadski is both exciting and practical with a multitude of uses”.
      “I know consumers will love the fun of driving a Quadski on land one minute and then head straight into the sea or river the next. But there is a very serious side to Quadski as well: emergency services and aid workers will be able to reach areas and people no two or four wheel drive vehicle could reach.”
