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.

    • what is a good 4wheeler with a manual transmission?

      Hello there, i am wanting to know, what would be a good 4 wheeler with a manual transmission?  Either a real manual with a clutch, or a semi automatic transmission. Either 2 or 4WD will do.  What i do want is one that has a rack at each end and can pull a small trailer.   So what are your suggestions? I am open to most any brand though Linhai is the only one from China i would buy.        So far it looks like Arctic Cat is overwhelmingly what fits what i'm looking for, but like i said, i'm open to almost any make. If there is any rivalry over brands count me out, i like them all.   What i do want is one that will last through farm use, hauling feed sacks and so forth.

      BLUERIBBON COALITION, INC. MEDIA RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Del Albright, BlueRibbon Ambassador Phone: (209) 304-7693 Email: [email protected] Date: April 27, 2009 Rubicon Trail Update: Water Quality Board Meets - Rubicon Stays Open SACRAMENTO, CA (April 27) - The Rubicon Trail is open and OHV recreation is sustained on this icon of four-wheeling, according to the Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF) and Friends of the Rubicon (FOTR). The Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (CVRWQCB) voted unanimously to issue a Cleanup and Abatement Order (CAO) to El Dorado County and the Eldorado National Forest for the world-famous Rubicon Trail that sustains motorized recreation while enhancing stewardship of the trail. Not only did the Board enact an order that recreationists can live with, but they also went so far as to praise the efforts of the volunteers for addressing trail issues in such a prompt manner all these years. The Rubicon Trail traverses the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains of California from roughly Georgetown, CA to Lake Tahoe, CA. Water runoff and erosion are always concerns on trails in the west, but thanks to the efforts of all the clubs and members of Friends of the Rubicon in partnership with Eldorado County, landowners and the USFS, the Rubicon Trail is well maintained. "FOTR has invested thousands of hours of organized trail work and maintenance since our beginning in 2001," said Del Albright, co-Founder and Trail Boss, Friends of the Rubicon. "We are well-prepared to address any concerns or issues on this famous trail, and we are working towards a future of stewardship we can all be proud of," Albright added. Greg Mumm, Executive Director of the BlueRibbon Coalition, pointed out that "BlueRibbon has sponsored Del's leadership of efforts on the Rubicon Trail since the beginning, and we are confident that FOTR can handle this like they have everything else thrown at this famous trail." The Rubicon Trail Foundation is the 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting efforts on the Rubicon Trail. They led the effort to ensure the Water Board understood all trail issues. RTF has position statements covering many aspects of trail use on the Rubicon, including topics like water quality, sanitation, camping, and year-round use. The Rubicon Trail Foundation does not support the blanket restriction of Rubicon Trail use by season, or by vehicle numbers, type or size. Further, the Rubicon Trail Foundation encourages the establishment of reasonable and practical operating procedures for training of volunteer groups and others to install and maintain trail drainage structures, stream crossings and new trail segments. Other issues being addressed by the dedicated volunteers of FOTR and RTF include mitigating oil spills and managing human waste. The Rubicon Trail Foundation supports requiring every Rubicon Trail user to carry portable human waste disposal devices and requiring every motorized user to carry oil spill kits. The Rubicon Trail Foundation works hand in hand with the Friends of the Rubicon and together, with the agency partners, these groups are ensuring an access-friendly future for the Rubicon Trail. "We look forward to implementing this order from the Water Quality Board in conjunction with our great partners in the county and USFS, because we all will benefit, and our trail will stay open, alive and well," Albright concludes. More information on RTF position statements, mission, and the CAO is available at Welcome to Rubicon Trail Foundation - or by emailing Board Director Scott Johnston at [email protected] # # # The BlueRibbon Coalition is a national recreation group that champions responsible recreation, and encourages individual environmental stewardship. It represents over 10,000 individual members and 1,200 organization and business members, for a combined total of over 600,000 recreationists nationwide. 1-800-258-3742.

      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.

    • By atvoffroad4life
      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!

      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.
