I discovered the fine line between brave and stupid.

Really tough spot I got it in and over it went. It threw me down the mountain and thankfully a tree stopped it before too much speed built up.

So so so glad I'm alive.

Lesson learned!!!!!

The bike survived ok. It on some high mountain private land. Had to leave till Monday to get enough rigging to pull it out. It's on all fours pointing up hill.

Feels weird leaving it but it's about as hidden as can be.

Glad you are OK. I always look at an obstacle and tell myself "I think I can". After I try it and fail I look at it again and say "I thought I could". At this point I shake my head and say "I think if I would have done this instead of......." and the whole process starts over.

Ever try to sleep after a near miss like that and it keeps replaying over and over in your head? I have crash anxiety.

I think I really jacked up my knee. I can barely walk this morning.

how high up were you ?

The hill is about 200 yards.

I was at the half way point. Trying to cut across it sideways. Luckily the quad hit a tree within 25 feet. I stopped shortly after. It's one of those hills that gets progressively steeper towards the bottom. It's thick with brush so it's hard to gauge the incline in parts and I def guessed wrong.

So my sister is letting me borrow there rancher that has a winch to go pull it out of the hole.

Any tips on what to do and NOT to do

I planned on anchoring the winch quad to a tree from its hitch ball and maybe walking along side my quad up the hill.

I'm gonna have to have a long extension rope for sure and take it in steps.

Good idea when winching to throw a coat (prefer leather) over the winch cable in bout the cent. Being if the cable breaks, it helps the cable not snap back.

It is retrieved. 2 hours of careful winching. Very steep and easy going.

After all the rolling and tree slamming

NOTHING wrong with it. 25 foot winch cable and 2 100 foot ropes.

I cleaned out the air cleaner and the housing and I'm off and riding.

Feels so so good to have it back in the garage.

Well I am glad to see you are OK. The thing is once you wreck you have to get right back on and ride. The same things happened to me when I rolled my quad, you second guess everything. You just need to start riding again and get your confidence back.

Leave the quad that is winching running and maybe you can borrow a snatch block if it is a steep incline to take some of the pressure off of the cable. Also get some type of wheel chock to put under your quads tires when you go to re rig the cable for the next pull. Do it in stages and give the winch a break in between so you don't overheat the winch.

      Thought i would share a fix that I came across. I was working on a 99 scambler 500, The customer complaint was that even with the fuel shut off the tank would slowly drain out onto the ground. First I found the fuel shut off was bad/ leaking/ dripping so I installed a new one thinking that would fix it. Then I ran it and and seen that the overflow was flowing fuel out from the bowl. So I cleaned the needle and seat and changed the float height to lower the fuel level in the bowl. Well... It still overflowed and flooded. So I bench tested the needle and seat with a pop off tester. I found that these newer style needle and seats just utilize an o-ring to install the brass seat into the carb.
      The o-ring for the seat had hardened up allowing fuel into the float bowl from under the seat. New o-ring and problems solved.

      Hi my linhai 300 is hard to start and  engages gears at idle which is 1200 rpm was looking at cdi says on it 7500 rpm does this mean quad should idle at 7500 rpm as this would explain transmission problemb as idle is too high thanks gary

      The small waterline insert for the hose that goes from the water pump cover to the thermostat housing has corroded off. I only need the insert on top and behind the thermostat housing that the hose goes over and can't find just the insert. It looks like it may be pressed in. I've have been told the entire motor housing needs to be replaced. The pic with the red line indicates where the hose and insert would be and the insert looks like the pic of the water pump  Any ideas would be really appreciated.

      I got a good bit of riding in today I am liking the sport quad! How many of you got to ride this weekend?

      I went out today checking on some trails for downed trees and other things I will need to clean up before spring.
      I am still working on getting my Drift HD cam set up, so the quality isn't where I would like it to be. My average speed was around 30 but even tho I got up to 40 once or twice, I think the video looks like I was going a lot faster. Maybe that has to do with the frames per second setting.
      Anyways, I hope ya'll like it, and I am working on getting some other people out riding with me, so I can get some good action shots.
      Sooner or later I will learn how to make better soundtracks too, so please bear with me, I am not quite up to Wyldes level of video making.

      We took a little drive today to go look at a truck I was thinking of buying. Bout an hour east of home.
      Imagine a place where cars and trucks are secondary and ATVs are everywhere.

      i finally managed to make it to the trails today, been trying four days to go!! this is the first time to really ride my king quad since i removed the fuel injection, other than just around the neighborhood. i took it out to the gravel pit, had one of my neighbors ride my honda so there was backup. both bikes done great ... until we got to the frog pond!!! i decided to take the trail through the back edge of the pond, got all the way around and then right as i was getting back into the pond i sunk it!! it went down to the handle bars, luckily I put a snorkel on when i put the carburetor on it!! it stayed running, but i never even thought of sealing the belt cover and running a snorkel of that!! it would not move in high range, would try to and just slip, in low range it would move as long as i didnt gas it too hard, just shut it down and towed it back, tomorrow im taking the bike apart and thoroughly cleaning and sealing everything, and replacing belt:aargh:
