Quad Of The Month

Recommended Posts



Is it a contest with prize? What is the criteria? How do they do it on other sites?

Is it a contest with prize? What is the criteria? How do they do it on other sites?

usually its just recognition for being the quad of the month. everyone submits three pics of there quad and one mod just goes down the list of what was submitted and list it as a poll of like dislike or undecided.

The way we do it on RF is.....

There is a thread, for entries, you have a mod pick out the best 4 quads, and you start a new thread with a poll. I think the best thing to do is have a utility, and a sport one. There is no prize really, we could get to change the name under the "online/offline" box where is says Member. Just a thought? Oh, and I feel that you need to have a mod list, not just a signature, because if you cant take the time to write one up, you shouldnt be QOTM.

On TRX450R.org its a little simpler, where everyone just submits a picture of their quad and the first 25 people to submit a pic get put into a poll for everyone on the forum to vote on..

Mod lists may not always need to be a requirement. Not every car that wins at a car show is a custom. Sometimes the value and uniqueness comes from a restoration back to factory original condition. This would be particularly true of many of the old 2 strokes from the 80s. The nicest ones rarely have a long list of modifications. Rather, they are either survivors in great condition or restored to OEM. Just a thought from an old guy for the sake of the discussion.

I agree. But I still think you should have something, saying something about the bike.

Tagels, good idea, 25 is a bit much for this forum. Maybe 10 at the most?!?!

Yeah 25 is probably a bit much, unless the admins can make a poll that allows 25 options.. Thats what they did on trx450r.org

we should pick 12 awesome pics and use them for a QuadCrazy calender.

I say we do all the quads of the month in the Calender, and winners get a calender the next year around once they are printed with the past years quads.

I am starting to really like the calender idea. It would be an excellent way to promote the site also.

      Cool mornings here  (high 50's -mid 60's).  The '02 300 Bayou has a replacement Chinese Carb that starts first or second hit at temps over 75 or so.  It wont start in the cool mornings.  Choke at any position, Throttle positions, turning over with the compression relief open a few turns, grinding for 20-30 secs, None helps.  Temp goes up, NO Problem.  Ideas?

      Hey everyone, hoping to get some help here... my kids 03 KTF 50 Quad has always ran great... they were riding it a couple of hours a few days ago and it died a couple of times (not normal) but started right back up. A few days later my 5 year old wanted to take it for a spin so I started it (2 pulls) and he took off.. he made it a couple hundred yards and it died and we havnt been able to start it since. I have new gas, good spark and 120 psi compression.. it will not start with starter fluid in the intake or even in the cylinder.. the fuel bowl has fuel at the carb... what am I missing? It’s driving me crazy!!

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.

      i have a 2000 suzuki king quad lt-f300f that i picked up as a project bike. it didnt run well when it was parked outside 5 years ago. it cranked after putting fresh gas - but would not run below half throttle, i took apart the carb, cleaned debris, and re-assembled. i suspect that the pilot needle is sheared off - it never protrudes into the throttle body through the pinhole. now to get the bike to ALMOST idle, the throttle idle adjustment knob is all the way up/in. the pilot needle is turned almost all the way in/up (if i understand correct, it should nominally be out 2 1/4 turns or so). and like i said, it will ALMOST idle. floods easily, rides rough.
      wanted to hear from those more experienced than me with suzukis - and im self-taught atv repair, so dont laugh too hard if my verbiage/part names is way off. 
      facing the driver's side of the bike [US] there are three hoses on this side of the carb. without a service manual or way of knowing what was messed up before i got it, i think i have them right: front hose as a vacuum to the petcock, middle hose as vacuum to the fuel pump, rear hose as fuel line from the fuel pump. running the bike in prime position results in flooding even while riding. with all hoses disconnected from the carb, fuel slowly drips from the vacuum line connected to the petcock.
      so just my speculation is that the diaphragm in the petcock is split, and the pilot needle is broke off - causing my inability to not quite idle and the rough ride. this suzuki is hoses and cables everywhere compared to the honda ranchers and yamaha warriors i am used to. I would like to have a plan rather than: replace everything at once.
      is my speculation on the right track, or could something else be at play? say, if the compression was non-existent, would that cause non-idling? i am all ears, look forward to the input.
