Hello and welcome to the QC site !!

There is alot of knowledge here and good opinions on bikes/4x4s ...

Hunting and putting around i would say a 350 is a good size, honda or yamaha in that department ...

Throw out some ideas and i am sure you will have some solid answers, again, welcome !!

AND Happy Thanksgiving !!

I all, I'm a new member from near Montreal, Qc! Bought myself my first quad, a 1995 Yamaha Big Bear 350 that needed some love, already got some help here about maintenance.

Sadly my transmission failed so I'm currently replacing my drum shift, I might need some extra advice for stuff not covered in my Clymer manual, I think this is the place to be... Happy to join!

I gave a friend a junker side by side fridge and he gave me this old junker 89 Yamaha Moto 4. We love to tinker, and it has low range and reverse so I thot would make a tractor out of it. I farm; too old to jump and stuff! But it dont run (motors not seized though) So like some people who curl up with a good book thought I would curl up with a good tinker LOL. I am Mario James, hailing from a little rock south of the Florida panhandle called JAMAICA.

Welcome Mario, you probably have a 350cc if its 4x4 and a 250cc if its 2x4 ... most of the time the older ones wont spark, usually a stator will fix you right up ...

if you can get the vin #, you can online search it ... number is on the handle bar neck, and stamped in the frame at the gear shift on the frame ... should be 17 digits

Thanks for the warm welcome, oxidized_black! Ive looked at the stickies and I dont see an manual for my quad. I dont know if any one on this forum might point me in the direction of a service manual for a 1989 Yamaha Moto4 250 cc ATV? Because I intend to farm, I wonder if a simple head - sleeve piston change might bump up the displacement to 300cc, or even 350? (YFM motor) Also could anybody tell me if anyone has done a brake conversion to hydaulics at both ends...instead of the cable? (cables dont last long in dirt an mud) Also wanna put the clutch under my left hand where it belongs, and do away with the centrifugal setup. Thanks and cheers to everyone!

Hi everyone,

bought a kazuma 50 quad and there dont seem to be much about this one on the net so was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. i would like to know what engine it is for a start for parts etc. from what i have found i think its a yamaha replica engine, 2 stroke and the guy i bought it off said he had it for about 7 years so its fairly old. its used in mopeds aswell. i would like to change head and piston at some point so really need to know what engine i have. any help much appreciated.

sorry for diving straight in :laugh:

Okay so I know its not a GY6 because they were selling valves for them and my engine doesn't have em, although there are parts that look like there the same, coil pack and lead for example or cdi. So cheers for that prices are pretty decant on the second link not sure bout the first one:shocked: eBay's been pretty good

okay this is my engine- 2-Stroke 50cc 1PE40QMB, and here is a pic for a reference.

heres a link for parts, 2-stroke 50cc 1PE40QMB Minarelli Jog motor parts

runs sweet now after some fiddling, just a real mare to start, i have a new electric choke ordered that hopefully will sort the cold start out.

i have a question: is it possible that the flywheel that the starter motor spins is not as free as it should be?

it looks pretty dry in there and seems that the starter just aint got the grunt for it, took the plug out and it spins fine, so after spraying some wd40 in the hole where the starter motor goes and then doing it again did help but still not right.

appreciate any help, thanks

starter motor may be weak or battery not up to snuff, should be ok though ...

check the reed valves in the carb for cracks and warpage too for hard starts ...

      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.

      I recently bought a 2008 Kawasaki Teryx LE 4x4. It is an old beast, but in super good condition with only 30 original hours on it. It belonged to an old man who used it to check his mail some days. I have a very steep piece of property and intend to use it as a light weight tractor.

      I would also like to score a spare set of wheels to mount some Turf-type tires on it. Every now and then I may use it as a patrol vehicle when working a large property. I am a semi-retired cop and do this kind of work on the side.

      My intentions are to mount lights, a winch, and perhaps a stereo to it. Other than that, I am afraid that stock will be good enough for me!

      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
