WELL....:aargh:....I jinxed myself yesterday with my post.......bike just did'nt sound right today, sounded boggy at higher speeds....son was riding and the idle went way up like the throttle was wide open and it died right before that happened. We restarted it and thus the high rpm's.....*sigh* Any suggestions?? (I'm gonna cry:frown:....seriously)I checked and tried to adjust idle screw,,,no effect on rpm's.....I'm thinkin airleak, but where?:realmad:

That stinks! All I know about the blasters is their a real blast. But when you don't have a quad any of them at a good price can be fun Honda, yamaha, Suzuki, kawasaki, Power wheels. I looked at a blaster for 1,200 and then found my 4x4 prairie for 1,600. I needed a quad my wife could ride with me.

well........rode for a few days and had a lot of fun on it...finally,,,,but sadly, I did not check the nuts on the cylinder after a few hours of riding, and one came loose....leak! I am so mad, scored the heck out of the new piston, freshly honed cylinder, and metal shavings in the bottom of the block. That was the last bore on the cylinder too.....found one locally i am going to pick up tomorrow and will be able to use the piston i bought that was the wrong size after the cylinder is honed...(they said it was stock bore, I can only hope) the piston I bought is 20 over, so we'll see. So, after 3 nights of howling at the full moon with drink in hand, I am refocused on getting this done right this time,,,LOL! :yes: what a learning lesson that was! Jeff, did u get your quad fixed yet?

Many days spent on the internet and to day it paid off. I ran across someone having the same problem. It' a part of the front actuator. It's rectangle shaped metal block know as a collar. I had found it and thought it was the problem but coul not find out if I could just buy the part and what it was called till today. This little block of metal is 25.00 I don't even thank it's 1\2" long. Sorry to hear about your bad luck. It would be so nice to be able to buy a new quad. We never know how the used ones we buy have been kept up.

Glad you figured out the problem and part, it is nice that ajmboy posted the parts schematics for my bike, and I thanked him for it last night (I've been on that page MANY times, LOL).It is sad how much the parts cost, but when you think of how often we use the bikes, it's not too bad. Now Pete,,,,,, YOU know I don't have a camera.......but I did take pics on my phone, especially how to put everything back together, and the handy dandy Polaris manual helps too......picked up the new cylinder this morning and it is stock bore (YAY), also bought a complete engine off of ebay last night, just in case.... so let the honing begin!!!:biggrin: The moon is done being full so no more howling either...LOL:yes:

My quad is totally hammered, you wouldn't believe what I go through to go riding, but that is what seperates us from everyone else. We need to ride it is in our DNA.:yes:

Thank you! The only thing I have found out if you pull off something cool your friends don't get a pic of it they tend to shoot the wipeout or about the most goofy thing you do.(goofy ride) I call it the belly ride It's when you hit the jump and for some reason your feet end up in the air behind you & on landing your hanging on to the handlebars and your belly on the seat while your legs are still hanging off the back of the bike. Then bike gets a case of the wobbles till your front wheel turns is going from right or left and you go down.

      Not sure how many of you will remember this or give a crap about it but back in 2016 I picked up my first old atv to rebuild. Yamaha bear tracker 250. I picked it up in NJ while I was out looking for a quad for my little guy since he started this atv thing after seeing a few old pictures of me in my hay day riding. 
       
      The person I was getting the 50cc quad had this one laying around and asked if I was interested in it.  It was beat up and hadn’t ran in a few years.  No spark the guy said and he left it to sit.  I wound up taking both bikes. 
      I wish I had pics but I deleted the original post on Quadcrazy and lost the old ones on my phone when I upgraded. 
      This was the atv that caused me to stumble upon Quadcrazy since I needed a little help with the spark issue.  So needless to say I fixed it, did some cosmetic work and she was good to go. I took it upstate and used the shit out of it for just about everything under the sun. This atv made it through some deep snow, mud etc. I decided to leave it up there and use it as a back up since it’s been about 50 atv’s later and I have newer machines now. But unfortunately it sat for some time and it’s a little beat up so I brought it back home and going to clean it up. Amazing how one year sitting has done so much damage. 
      This was the first atv that I owned in over 30 years! It’s the atv that brought me here to Quadcrazy where now I endlessly check the site to see what’s going on, who’s talking about what and who can we help with there problem or can help me with mine as well as the on slot of what I do today as a hobby with atv’s. It’s been a great pass time for me and my son with the projects we have gotten and get into. He’s learned how to ride so well it scares me a little watching him. He’s learned how to fix, maintain and upgrade atv’s. He’s insanely good with carburetors as well. 
      It’s a good thing when a kid wants to play in the garage over his X Box!!
      The funny thing about this bike is that when we finished it we thought it was the best thing! We were missing a rack on the front and didn’t care since it looked ok, had no clue where to get parts or how to fix plastics. I was so new to this again since I was staring all over again and now had to remember things and also teach my son!  
      So we will be tearing into the bear tracker to get her up and running again as well as maybe a few new cosmetic changes and hang on to her for a while since I love this bike.  The last two pics are the bike the day we finished putting it all back together and when it was upstate for the first week. 
       
      Had no intention of this post going so long. 🤷🏻‍♂️

      I have an '02 Taurus with 85k miles on her that I just bought.  Today when I was checking something under the hood I noticed this metal line cold and dripping with water...
       

       
      I had the air on but turned to the position of arrows pointing out of the dash and floor vents only.  The defrost or a/c function was not selected.  It seems to be doing it consistently.  I haven't traced all the parts of this car's a/c system yet but I don't know of anything else under a hood that turns cold and sweats.  Why would my compressor be working when it's not selected?  What tests should I run?

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob
