No pics as I just went to the same hills and trails. Ive been riding since I was nine but I have no idea how to properly hill climb, jump, lean etc on a sport quad so it was alot of repetative stuff. Great part was I was the only one there today. I did almost flip on a hill climb. I made it to the top and it was real steep at the very top so the tires dug in. I did a wheelie even with my weight on the front. I landed on my feet and the quad just stood straight up on its rear grab bar in front of me. No damage though. Then almost got stuck in a mud puddle bought a foot deep. Made it through barely. I need to get someone with me since my luck is gunna run out soon.... Oh and i was stopped by a shirtless man with a machete and then a RAC employee checkd my permit...i had an awesome day!!!

I'm new to quads myself and I jumped in with both feet first I found a good deal on a Kawasaki prairie 650 So far I've only had 1 wipeout. I've had lots of fun with it not alot of air time but some good climbs, mud, and a few small wheelies & a few things could have gone wrong! I need to find some friends to ride with before my luck runs out too!! Glad you had fun.

The newer 4x4's are nice lots of power good handling and you can go place where some sports can't . Sport quads are faster to get up to top speed. But they both top out at about the same. If you don't ride on race tracks youmight like a 4x4.

My father has an 05 Kawasaki 700 but thats his everyday mule for yard work. The 4wheel drive wont engage/disengage and it backfires alot. He is happy with it though and it is comfy to drive in tight trails

      x   just bought this expedition 425 and the Speedo needle does not work. The lights work for the shift indcator. So is this an electronic Speedo or cable? Is there a way to fix it or will I have to replace the unit? Thanks for any help you can provide.

      I bought an 07 honda trx400ex for my daughter 11th birthday. I've been having alot of fun fixing it up but after reading some of the posts about safety I think I may have gotten a little carried away. I put an exhaust on that added 10hp, a k&n performance filter, new carb, a stage 3 rev box and coil, and I wrapped the exhaust. The top speed started out at 92mph and we're well above that now. My main concern, though, is low end throttle. Is there any way I can do something thate will decrease the rate of acceleration without taking off the modifications I've done? She's super cautious and won't go over 10mph but I'm worried that she may have a hard time controlling it after these last few upgrades.

      I have an Outlaw 110 that will struggle to turn the engine over. Jump starting doesn't help other than the battery will drain LONG before the bike eventually starts, so is required. If you keep messing with it long enough it will eventually magically begin to crank fine and sometimes finally start. Once we finally get the bike to start and warm it up thoroughly, it will turn over and start just fine the rest of the day like nothing ever happened... next day it won't turn over again.  Internet research has found lots of people saying they replaced starters, starter clutch, wiring, etc. but with only about 50/50 success rate for their particular problems... and I never found anybody describing a problem like mine, so I'm looking for advice/experience. Would rather not just start blindly throwing parts at it. Does anybody have any thoughts/ideas?

      I’ve been quading for years now with my kids and they are grown up now and ride on their own, I showed them the basic rules of the road and don’t trash the place up your ride, keep an eye out for other riders ect, we live in the woods and can get to many places from where we live, I love it, just to get out and slow ride the paths around here
      The kids went riding the other day on the Burma, near the 20 mile per hour sharp turn, which is state public land, but your not allowed to ride there unless your dcnr I guess
      Anyway the dcnr guy, Ranger wolfgaggle, something like that was in the bushes that day with his Honda 550 & specially made push bar, its not stock and looks like it may be solid military grade, for apparently smashing into kids on quads
      He missed a couple other riders that day so he was getting itchy to slap a fine on anyone, if he could catch them, we never encountered dcnr on the Burma Mountain ever but the day I wasn’t there he was flying towards my kids on a path only big enough for 1 quad, he almost took out the leader on a motor cycle but the motorcycle almost wrecked into a tree to avoid a full throttled 550 coming at him on the path
      The next in line was my 17 year old daughter who’s been riding since she was 10 with my daughter inlaw on the back of a 250 ozark, she saw the bike almost getting hit and thought whats wrong with this idiot, then he was coming right at her full throttle, she turned off the path into the bushes to avoid getting hit head on and he turned and ran into the side of them with that big pushbar, puts the Ozark on 2 wheels and is immediately off his bike and grabs my daughter by the neck and slams her to the ground.
      My son was on the next in line Ozark and saw the whole thing happen and was thinking to himself who the hell is this a**hole and was about to whomp him when he finally Id’s himself,
      My Sons 22 and my 9 year old was son riding with him he just saw this dcnr guy choke slam his sister to the ground so he went hysterical and my daughter was really upset & began throwing up.
      In the meantime me & my wife are at home and get a call that the kids were hit on the quad, this was about 10 minutes after he was getting there info & didn’t call them an ambulance, you know how them untrained dcnretards are, we drop everything hop in the car pass the spot out turn around and pull in at the 20 mph turn
      The gate is closed, they were back at the 2nd gate to the right closer to locust lake, I’d say about 2 to 3 10th of a mile in, when I approached him and said what the hell did you do to my daughter, he was talking about a fine? I said did you call them an ambulance you just hit them, I want a state cop here and an ambulance now, I want to press charges on him, he calls for backup, so I had to call for an ambulance and state trooper.
      So I was going to ride the 1 quad home cuz the girls were hurt and I figured no ill just ride it to the gate and called my other son to bring the truck so not to cause anymore fines
      We get out to the turn and the cops from all different municipalities start pulling in, but no state police, St.Clair, Minersville, Mahanoy City, New Caslte, Rush Township a few others that slipped my view were in and out and the dcnr guy says I poked him, I turned around and said you just ran my kids over I want him arrested, that when the wall of blue(Blue code of silence) became evident, oh we cant do anything this isn’t our jurisdiction and Mr dcnr said that’s not what happened, so I was so P’O’ I called the state police again & said I need someone here to take a statement this guy just ran into my kids, The trooper on the phone said we aren’t going to step over dcnr you need to talk to his superior
      In meantime ambulance got there and to daughter inlaw to hospital, my daughter was to shaken up to go but we took her down and she’s got bruises on her leg a concussion and needs xrays of her back, daughter in law has same thing plus sprained ankle and xrays of her back
      So I said can I load the quads on the truck now & they said no they are being held for evidence cuz they were in an accident, I said yeah one that dcnr caused why don’t you take his bike also, his is the one that did the damage to the girls
      My 9 year old said dad I saw him clenching his teeth before they hit them and he started to tell one of the officers, I said son they don’t want to hear it, but why he hit them, what a 1st time experience for your kid to have with cops, they don’t help you when they hurt you.
      Dcnr had an opened face mask, so he could see his teeth
      The quads were impounded in Shenedoah towing $200.00 and 25 each a day, so we will probably never be able to get them back by the time they are done with there fake investigation
      The red Ozark of ours didn’t get hit, it was a 550 honda 4matic vs a 250 ozark, the Ozark lost big time its plastics were dented, the screws that held the plastics in where ripped out on the whole side that was hit and the rim was dented from the impact, so imagine how the girls legs felt.
      We got pictures of the quads before they were taken away and of his bumper that is a bit dented on has a few scrathes from the collision
      I figured I’d get this story out to warn other riders, be careful they are out to kill you and you don’t have a chance unless you got a bigger cc quad with a biggerpush bumper and camera wouldn’t hurt either.
