I'm new too, just signed up! The forum looks great. I just found out there are places to ride within two hours of me (Bundy Hill, Mounds ORV and the Sandbox), I'm in Macomb Twp.

I'd don't have a quad yet but given those three places (Mounds ORV being the nearest to me) I listed above I'll have to figure out whether to get a utility or sport quad. Any suggestions?

Hey man, yeah Maccomb isnt too far away from me depending where you are in maccomb as for sport or utility it depends on what you like to do more, I love speed, wheelies, and jumping so I rock a yfz 450 but if you like rocking crawling mudding and stuff like that then utility is for you. Im about an hour from Mounds and Bundy hill so Ill be checking those out every once in a while but trying to find closer riding areas like private land and what not.

I've ridden both utility and sport quads and I am considering the one best suited to the areas I'll be riding in. I like both and was wondering what the conditions/terrain at Mounds favored. The Sand box is defintely a place for sport quads and I'm not sure about Bundys.

Private land sounds great if you can find it. There was a place in Holly called the "Holly Family Farm", this was the info on it:

Holly Family Farm

13219 North Holly Rd

Holly, MI 48442


(sat 12:30 to dark; sun 10:00 to 8:00pm)

The website is still up: Holly Family Track

There are even some YouTube videos of people riding ditbikes and quads there but there contact info isn't doesn't work.

Holeshot if i where you I would not base a quad purchase off of one place. Personally the mounds is nothing but mud and a utility quad is perfect for there. With that said that is the only place that a utility quad would be better than a sport. Most private land owners that allow quads to ride from my experience wont let the utility quads do any mudding as it creats a lot of damage to the area and they dont want to deal with the ruts and whole from the puddles. As far as the state land I have been up to this year you can ride anything but I personally could not see riding these trails on a utility as they are just way to fun on a sport as you can go much faster and there are a TON and I mean a TON (ha Mike5469?) of whoops that would beat you up on a utilty. Its all on what kind of riding you personally like to do. There are areas around that you can find that would be perfect for either type especially if you look on forums and talk to enough people. You will get in contact with people that know of places for either or. The web is a wonderful place. Good luck and keep us posted.

      Hey everyone, first I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate. Now onto my new problem. My apologies now for a long post. I just want to go thru everything I've done to help figure out what the issue is.
      Here goes: 
      I have an 04 Yamaha Kodiak 450. Last week I went to take it for a ride and it wouldn't start. The display would light up and the speedometer numbers would go around in a circle like it was loading (to give an idea of what it looks like). When I would try to start it, it wouldn't do anything and the display would go blank. I tried crossing over the solenoid and it still wouldn't do anything, nothing at all. 
      Today I was writing in it and hooked up a charger/jump box to see if that battery was dead. The charger read that it was completely charged. I tried cranking it and after a few tries and reconnecting the charger, I got the 4 wheeler to start. I unhooked the charger and a minute later the 4 wheeler just shut off like I turned the switch off. I, again, hooked up the charger, waited a couple minutes and the ATV started again. This time I left the charger hooked up several minutes while the ATV was running. When I unhooked the charger this time, it stayed running and I was actually able to ride it around the yard for several minutes without any issues.
      I parked it, shut it off with the kill switch like I always do, turned the key off. I thought I would see if it would start on it's own. I turned the switch on, kill switch off, and nothing. The display wouldn't light up nor turn over. When I would turn the kill switch on, the display would then light up, but once I turned the switch off, the display would go blank. 
      I took off the start button ignition assembly off the handlebar and all of the connections looked new, so it should be making a great connection to the handlebar. I originally had a new solenoid on, but I put the original back on, cleaned all of the terminals, tried crossing it over with nothing happening still. I put on a new starter a couple of weeks ago and there hadn't been any issues until a couple weeks ago when I tried taking it for a ride like originally stating. 
      Could the kill switch have gone bad and is causing this issue? Could it be some chance be the starter since it's not an OEM? Could it be the rectifier going bad? 
      Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated. I would love to get it fixed soon. I have some other maintenance I want to do on it and have it road ready in case I need it if weather were to get bad. Thanks in advance. I do appreciate all of y'all's help and advice.
