I wish gas prices would drop it's limited my ride time. I'm going to have to skip a few meals to afford gas so I can ride. If my quad could run on fat I would be good for years with liposuction bio fat fuel.

For me and my family its usually the gas to drive the quads to wherever we are going to ride that gets us, Driving to the track which is almost 60 miles round trip is way more gas then our quads and bikes use riding for 2 hours.

We haven't had to haul our quads to far to ride. It all adds up. My daughters 90 seems to run for ever on a tank of gas. I remember when it cost less to fill up my car than a 5gal. gas can.

Your right about that!! Nitro for my 1/8 scale 2 stroke rc buggy is around 40.00 a gallon. Thats paying to play and it's not rideable. Now it needs a new engine or piston & sleve. It's only 2hp I can get a new engine now with over 3hp. So go big or go home. I think I'll just leave it on the shelf for now all the rc race tracks that I raced at have closed. So thats about 250.00 in gas if I don't fix the rc buggy

To fill the truck now it is just around $60, and with the quads loaded I get around 10-12 MPG. I would love to see gas for under $3 again.

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!

      Hello! I picked up a YFM400 and I would love to talk shop with knowledgeable co-owners, and I'd love input about the machine from anyone here who clearly knows more than I do! Cheers from NY
