We have 2 stroke & 4 stroke now a few co. KTM for one is doing a electric bike maybe. Why not a small diesel & and some bio-fuel. If a vw can get 40 somthing mpg. just think what we could get with a quad. Can we get that with a turbo please. Utility & UTV would be cool. Then in the real world I don't think people would go for it & the price would sky rocket.

A quad with a turbo would be cool, although i think electric is the future, once the batteries get better with more capacity gas will be a thing of the past :yes: Plus theirs no engine maintenance with an electric vehicle

Tagels just like my rc cars their is just more of a cool factor of hearing the 2 stroke over my electric even if the up keep is more on the gas & the brushless is just as fast if not faster. It would be weird riding a elect. But we do have the ability to adjust.

Yeah it would be weird having no sound, but the instant torque and everything would make it worth it!

Wonder if my local law enforcement would pull me over in my neighborhood if I were riding an electric atv. There would be no noise to make the neighbors made riding in stealth mode.

You could theoretically make it a neighborhood electric vehicle like a golf cart..

like a golf cart on steroids. Just think how people would try to come up with different windings to get more power & batteries to pump out more juice.

And different controllers, different power curves different continuous and burst current limits. But then best thing is not having to deal with jetting and oil and gas and every other thing thats annoying about gas engines!

      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,
       
      Warren

      in this thread, I want to discuss how 4-cycle atv engines work- what the different types are...  how they are set up and which you prefer.  To start off, are the cams on ALL atv 4-strokes powered by a cam chain?  I know that on say a lawn mower or logsplitter engine, the cam is turned by the tappet, pushrods, and valve rockers.  Which is better and why?  Chain-driven cams or pushrod-driven cams?  Are the pushrods just an old version and everything is transforming to chains or the other way around...or not at all?  Just looking for some explanation, history, and downsides/upsides...
