I got a friend who welds I just need to see if theirs something to weld to it looks like it may have been repaired once already it's a little bent looking and rusty I think their is some metal missing I know the quad has some used replacement parts on the front but I'm not sure if it's from a crash where the front bumper mounts the bolts are broke off in the frame and I found a few bolts loose on the front. Strut, tie rod and A frame on one side. I have 2 friends that weld. The 1 has an auto body shop & builds rail buggy frames I think he would be the best one to weld it and if it needed some new metal i'm sure he could fix it but I need to see what he says needs to be done and the cost of what he would need to repair it. I also know where there is another frame too I'll have to get a price on it.

It is always good to inspec your machine before riding. Glad you found it before you were hurt. Hope you can get it fixed.

I'm waiting to hear back on a frame. And my friend said he will take a look and see if he can weld it. This is the main reason I keep it on the ground were both old enough to break. Quadnut the new Yamaha YZF 450 & raptor 700 looked real good & the new BF with EPS setting on the showroom floor.

My buddy looked at it and said it will be no problem to fix. It's close to the vin# on the frame so he suggested we get before and after photos incase a question ever comes up about the vin# looking like soomeone tried sanding it off. I' not sure when he will get to it I hope soon. He saide he wiil make a metal sleve for it and that it may not be as pretty as the factory look but it will be stronger.

Liquid nails and zip ties. I knew I should have bought my daughter at least a 250. Might have too trade her 90 in later.

If that A-arm let go on ya it could have sucked in a big way. Nice find, I think i'm going out to inspect mine before my next ride.

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      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

      Hi,
      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,
