The Dr. released me today but said to take it easy for 2 more weeks and then build up slowly. I did take my quad for a few laps around the yard and my hand did good.:yes:

Glad to see you are doing better. The thing to watch out for most is that you do not jam your hand with steering feedback. My wife had an operation on her hand and she was riding full throttle again in a year. Take your time to build back up the strength.

They sell a twist throttle kit if you think that might help. It is a cheesy hand grip that just extends top push the throttle lever but something like that might work as a temp. solution.

Thanks Swampcat. I've seen that twist throttle it pushes your thumb throttle. I rather spend the 102.00 and get the Motions pro twist throttle. I should be ok as long as I take it slow & my gloves have some good padding in the palm. A new quad with Eps would be my best friend.

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!

      Hello - I have just had delivered my 2004 registered King Quad 300.
      The gear change is pretty fierce.  Pretty hard to get into gear from neutral on the foot pedal and when I select reverse on the hand lever, it jumps into reverse with a hell of a kick.
      I am waiting for a service manual to arrive, but in the meantime, has anyone any suggestions please?
      Thank you.

      Hello all, 
      I haven't had a dirt bike or ATV for years, but a buddy of mine just picked up a raptor 700 and makes me want to get back into the sport. I'm looking for the best bang for my buck utility quad that can go in snow, but also hit some small jumps and trail ride. It would mostly be used for light trail riding; not really any mud holes or jumps around me (Bristol, Massachusetts). My last bike was a 2004 yz125 2 stroke and it was a pain. Every other ride I was doing something to the bike. I'm looking for a utility quad that I can ride for a month without having to touch it. I've done a bit of research so far and it seems like my best bet would be ~2014 Yamaha grizzly 700 with ~1000 miles for about $5,000. I'd love some more opinions from people who are more knowledgeable about the sport. I'm looking to stay around that $5,000 range. Also, there's no trails around me to go more than 40 or 50mph so I'm not too worried about keeping up with the 700.
       
      Thanks,
      Nick

      Hello from Buhl, Idaho (near Twin Falls). I typically ride at least once a week in the Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area. Also like to ride in Colorado, Utah (especially Moab), Montana and Wyoming. I currently ride a 2013 Yamaha Grizzly 550. Anybody want to ride in Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area look me up. I know these areas very well. I've also done a lot of dirt bike riding and 4X4 (Jeep) in the above listed areas over the last 15 years.

      Here's some pics from within the last month. Rather than build a frame and body from scratch, I drove to Kansas and bought a rust bucket G2 for $40 minus batteries. I've since cut it up in prep for the 1100cc v-twin shaft drive engine. I've included a picture of the of the latest mock-up. Im extending the frame and wheel base 12 more inches and widening the body by 12 more inches as well. I have on order a right side axle shaft and housing for the left side of my ATV rear end. This will widen the axle by about 12 inches. I will be eliminating the front  a-arms and replacing with straight pipe from knuckle to knuckle. I'll post more as it progresses.

      After many months I now have bought a radiator to replace my old one. Should be here soon! I can't wait to get back to riding. I'll have to mow the grass around where I parked my quad to find it.

      well my 05 king quad 700 has been running good on a honda rancher 350 carb, except it wont open up all the way, it has enough power to sling mud bout 50 feet, but, its just choking down, the intake through that carb is too small, jets too small, it has not overheated, it has not made the exhaust glow, hasnt missed a lick, just wont get over 42mph, it has plenty of lowend power, just like i said, not enough air or fuel to make it have full power, i found a carb off of a 76 ford 300 6cyl, it is a large bore 1 barrel, it is capable of running a 4.9l engine, going to rebuild it, cut the square flange off the bottom, while its apart i will weld a round bottom collar to attach it to the original throttle body mounting boot, hopefully by tues or wed it will be in place of the honda carb and the king quad will be pulling the front end off the ground, will post updates as available

      Now, the bad news:
      Montana
      Setback in Lewis and Clark National Forest Lawsuit
      In April of 2010 BRC, the Motorcycle Industry Council, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America and Montana user groups were celebrating a landmark legal victory in a lawsuit challenging the Lewis and Clark National Forest (LCNF) 2007 Travel Management Plan.
      A federal court in Montana agreed with our claims that the LCNF violated federal law. The central theme of the decision was that the Plan was more restrictive than any of the alternatives vetted during the public review process. The Court found that the Forest's final decision "reduced total motorized routes by nearly thirty percent from the most restrictive Draft EIS alternative. It also closed several routes which were not identified for closure in any DEIS alternative."
      The Court also struck down the agency's treatment of off-route travel for dispersed camping. The Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS) portrayed as an element common to every alternative a 300-foot-wide allowance, which was already in place in the Forest since 2001. In the Final EIS, and thus without the opportunity for further public input, this was altered to a "vehicle-plus-trailer-length" allowance in every alternative.
      Sadly, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has reversed that ruling finding the U.S. Forest Service did not violate the law when it strayed beyond the range of alternatives proposed in a draft environmental impact statement, as long as the plan differed in only minor ways from one of the alternatives and was “somewhere within” the range of alternatives proposed.
      I don't want to say too much about this because BRC and the other recreational groups are evaluating our options. Needless to say... stay tuned!

      From Eugene Oregon's registerguard.com
      EDITORIAL: Oregon’s ‘crown jewels’
      http://www.registerguard.com/wilderness-kitzhaber-rogue-wild-acres
      Earlier this year, Interior Secretary Kenneth Salazar asked governors and congressional representatives across the nation to identify “crown jewels,” natural treasures on Bureau of Land Management lands in their states that should be considered for federal wilderness protection.
      Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber took him at his word and recently fired off a wish list to Salazar. Kitzhaber’s requests should receive serious consideration for inclusion in wilderness legislation that the Interior chief plans to submit to Congress in its current session.
