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

Well, not your average quad.
Sure, it's not a picture of it running across the desert or climbing some hill somewhere but it's something different...much like the quad itself.
We had quite a few bikes there that were really something to see and the competition was stiff...
I'd show more quad pictures...but there weren't any there other than us. I figure most quad owners are too busy USING their quads rather than showing them.
We even had the show's guest stop by and check out the quad and stayed long enough for us to snap a picture of him on the bike!
This is actor Emilio Rivera from the FX show "Sons of Anarchy". He plays the head of the rival bike gang, the Mayans. He was really cool about us taking his picture and was a really down to earth guy.
When all was said and done...and after a really long day...we wound up taking home a trophy...first place in the Full Custom class! Not bad for our first time out.
Oh, and did I mention that there was pleanty to look at that wasn't bike related?
Anyway, there are more pictures of the show on our website if anyone is interested...Hog Wild Motorsports | Harley-Davidson powered Iron Horse Quad ATV Enjoy!
