It's about time I did something right

Recommended Posts

I went to pull the carb off my daughters quad and 2 fuel lines were cracked. I thought easy day changed the lines O boy lets here it run I was wrong. So now it took me longer to get the carb off than to go thru it. It's all back togather now and running good. I love the sound of a 2 stroke I'm happy now!

Same here for quads but not bikes. I don't understand what their thinking is. The age of a child should not determine what size quad they can ride. Just like my daugher I'm not going to say a 90cc is not enough power for her but the size of the quad is going to be to small for her. She's tall for her age and to me she already looks to big for the quad. With her height she fits on a polaris phoenix 200 we looked at a few weeks ago. I think the gov. or who ever needs to go back and rethink this over. We would be better off to be able to adjust the throttle as were able too now but have something too keep a kid from being able to change the setting. A quad that is to small for a kids size is dangerous to me. I could not see a 14 or 15 year old on a 90cc size quad. When I was 11 I was ridng a Yamaha 175 2 stroke my uncle would ride over to our house. He would let me go ride on the trails While he visited my mom & dad I had a SL70 of my own at the time. I could touch the ground just fine on the Yamaha but the power scared me at first when the front end come off the ground very easy but 15 to 20 mins. I got used to the power & the difference of a 2 stroke I was hooked. So in my long drawn out post here is to say size matters and I went by the rules! If I had it to do over I would have bought my daughter a bigger quad 1 she could ride for at least 4 to 5 years from now. After my 175 addiction My dad bought me a cr 125.

In the state of Nebraska I was told by our local "Barney Fife"...cop...that if you were under 16 you could not even ride them....That I believe he was\is wrong. Like that was gonna happen.

      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

      Oddly I'm having  a hard time ordering front brake shoes for my '98. 
      I'd appreciate recommendations on decent, widely available shoes if possible. Ideally available in Canada on short notice.
      Thanks much,
