Hey everybody name is Joe and Im out here in the hi-desert of SoCal. Still alot of good riding out here locally. Bought my old lady a quad a few years back and I always rode dirt bikes. Had a 2004 CR250R. On thanksgiving I was doing a big stand up wheelie down the road about 70mph and looped it:aargh:. I broke my feemer in 4 spots and compound fractured my l2 & l3 in my lower lumbar. I traded the bike for a quad a 2002 400EX, its like brand new, and even though it hurts to ride still Im on the thing every other day cruising some little trails down the street from the house, PHYSICAL THERAPY:biggrin:. Ive been riding since I was 9 so I love to ride and now Im looking forward to making this quad the sickest on the block. Looking forward to BSn and getting to know the QUADCRAZY familia whats up from SOCAL and IM gone now.

Thanks everybody been cruzing the boards reading. I decided it was time to get the old ladies quad out and clean it up. I need a seat cover and a battery. I jumped it and rode it around with the kids today so it runs fine old reliable. I really like the 250 EX perfect starter quad, fun to do wheelies on too. Any ways just wanted to post a pic of the quads, taking the kids out later on a dusk ride right before dark, want to use the head lights LOL. Ive always liked riding quads now I am gonna make it my sport.

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Hi,
      Oddly I'm having  a hard time ordering front brake shoes for my '98. 
      I'd appreciate recommendations on decent, widely available shoes if possible. Ideally available in Canada on short notice.
       
      Thanks much,

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.
