Thank you for welcoming this newbie to the forum. My neighbors and I take down the fence and love to see the small children race in the yards and learn to respect each other. We have enjoyed having ATVs for us "Big Kids" and the grand kids.

Looking for a little help with diagnosing a noise on my 2001 Kodiak 400 YFM. It sounds like a stack cam chain. I checked the Tensioner and it appeared to be ok, but fully extended when I removed it for inspection. I opened the cam cover and the tensioner (aft) seems ok, chain seem tight. I also noticed that the pull starter feels very hard to pull. It seem like it might be turning over the starter as if it was still engaged. When it is started by the starter it makes a loud clang right before it starts. I read about the recoil clutch. Not sure if that might be the noise. The ATV is new to me. My neighbor has run it for the last year making the noise. Any help is greatly appreciated....Thanks..from tampa....

Hello all,

I've been riding and racing quads for many years, just riding for the last few. Time has paid it's toll on me. :) I have made many riding friends over the years and plan to make more.

Some of our favorite spots to ride are Wayne National Forest, Silver Lake Dunes, and Hatfield McCoy.

Hope to see some of you out on the trail this year.

Hey everybody. I'm looking to get into quads. I had a trx125 when I was younger and plan on buying something when I get home from this deployment. I want to get into some racing but just for fun. Most ride light trails and dunes though. Any thoughts on where I should start? I have about 100 hours of research already so I'm pretty sure I'm going with a yfz but I'm open to ideas if you have some to share. Thanks.

Hi All-

New to the site, not the hobby! My name is Trevor but my friends call me Rabbit. I just picked up a 1985 Honda ATC 200s. Usually the first thing I do when I get a new toy is join a forum so I can learn a little more about the machine. I mostly enjoy motorcycles, but I wanted something I could tool around the property on. Found this little peach for cheap so here I am. Im from Wisconsin and live in Colorado. Looking forward to playing in the snow if we ever get some! When summer arrives hopefully riding some trail. Just a little about me...

      Hi all, 
      Just joined up with premium membership.  I wish to download a service manual or 2 (specifically the Polaris 110 EFI manual).   I paid for the membership, but when I try to download it says it's not available to me.  I know I haven't posted anything until now, but I thought the premium membership gave instant access to downloads.     Not sure what I'm doing wrong?  
      Thanks!

      Hello all just recently acquired this atv which as you can see in the pics that it has had an unsheltered life. i did get it running and put some used tires on the front.
      It still needs a bit more well needed maintenance, chains tightened and oiled. needs an airbox or air cleaner and other misc items.

      Hey Quadcrazy,
      Well I am new to the atv world, I have been using one of my buddies four wheeler for about 6 months, it is an old one that he never uses. I really enjoy going with my buddies and I am wanting to upgrade to something a little better and newer, I ride a 1970 something Yamaha two wheel drive 250, but I am wanting something for this winter that will rip through the snow and during the rest of the year trail ride.
      I am not wanting to spend a lot of money, I am just wondering where I should start looking and for what.
      Thanks
