I have read on other forums that most people like to change it every 30 hours or so, which seems about right to me.

Sounds about, betwen 25-30 hours or by mileage if you have an odometer. Some manufacturers recommend every 5 rides also.

      So I’m 14 years old right now..... I’m a pretty good rider for my age, I have a 98’ 300ex that I’m tryna sell. I’m thinking of a 400ex or should I skip the 400 and just go to a 450r or something along those lines?

      Hey guys, any ideas would be greatly appreciated on this. 
      So it started a few months ago, riding with some buddies and my 400ex all of a sudden lost power. Wouldn't fire, wouldn't sputter. Towed it home, and then it fired right up. It continued this pattern for a week or two, ran perfectly for varying amounts of time, suddenly died, and would start right back up if I waited 20 mins or so.
      Now we get to the next phase... I was dinking with it one day, I think I pulled the carb off and cleaned it out, (not really dirty but just to be sure) and I was trying different fuel screw adjustments. At any rate, I didn't notice much change, except obviously running a little poorer when I had the fuel screw in the wrong place. I took it on a quick ride around the block, and it was just fine. Ran awesome, had lots of power, etc. Then went around the block again and it died on me this time right as I revved it. Ever since then I haven't been able to get it to start. 
      Now when I turn it over, it sputters, fires a touch, but won't start. Ever. I replaced the plug, CDI, and coil, with no change. I do know that it has spark, but I don't know for certain that its big enough. After replacing these with no change I popped the carb off and tried firing it up spraying some either right into the intake. Upon doing so, it revved right up, but obviously there was no carb so it didn't stay running for long. While spraying the ether it seemed to run just like other engines I've tried spraying ether into no popping or backfiring etc. When it fired right up on the ether, I figured I must have a carb issue, so I just bought a whole new carb instead of taking the old one apart for the 800th time. When I put it in, there was no change whatsoever. Still turns over and sputters, but won't fire up.
      I am completely befused, and any input would be graciously accepted. If you read through all that your a trooper, so thanks very much :)

      Do any of you fine folks happen to have a rear swing arm skid plate for a 400EX you would part with at a reasonable price?  New ones are between $60 and a Hundo and that seems a bit steep.  I've kicked around the idea of fabbing one but 2nd hand OEM would be preferable.  Thoughts?  I have a belly skid plate but missing the swing arm skid plate and really don't wanna taco the brake rotor.

      I had the local garage change the oil and filter in my machine and ever since they changed it there has been an oil leak. Taken it back several times and they can't figure out the problem.

      Hey people
      Question for all, just picked a 1986 bayou 300 thinking of going synthetic any thoughts ?

      Common misconception is that you need to return to the dealer for an exact
      oil filter for your ATV.  Aftermarket companies actually make filters for
      the O.E.M. market. Why go to the dealer when you can get the exact filter you
      need at your local auto parts store such as CARQUEST or NAPA. Wix corporation
      makes ATV filters that you'll find in most of your popular autopart stores. 
      In most cases, you'll pay allot less! 
      WIX is a leader in the filter business.  Check out this
      ATV FILTER CATALOG.  Remember, you can
      right down the filter # and have it cross-referenced at your local autopart
      store if they don't carry WIX, CARQUEST, or NAPA.
      You can also click on the part # for the filter image.

      Can anyone tell me a oil I could use in my 99 Honda 450 automatic instead of Honda brand.. I live about 60 miles from the dealer so gets expensive.  Thanks
