Just thought I'd start a new thread for newbies to the site!
If you're new here, tell us who you are, where you're from and what you ride!!!
Lets get to know each other a little better shall we?
I'm not new to the site, obviously, but...
I'm Kristin from Denver!!! I ride a 2008 Yamaha Rhino. She's my muddy baby!!!!!! Several aftermarket parts on her. She's good to me! We try and ride every weekend. This weekend we're off to MOAB! :woot:
Okay so I bought this 1997 sazuki king quad from a guy and he had it for a few years.
He had it registered and on the trails last year but he said it bogged and backfired when he would try to drive it. so it sat for a year.
I bought it for 800 bucks and got it running that night and it ran great for a few days
But I parked it the other night and went to start it again and it was really hard to fire up and when I did it was bogging and idling high then low again.
So I took the carb out and cleaned it (ended up doing it twice because it was still doing the same thing)
Now today I have it running slightly better, but it is still like 20%
I have been looking it up and trying to figure it out but I can't find the issue, has anyone else had this problem? I'll attach a video of it running and giving some throttle
I'm new to the forums, but not new to the hobby. Admittedly though, I'm not super mechanically capable. But usually my contributions result in the problems I've attempted to solve via help with the forums and I will post my solutions. Or it I've solved a problem myself, I will post about it and how I solved it.
I've owned a lot of used (ever bought new) ATV's from: Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, and Polaris. From sport to 4x4, and have developed all my biased opinions of each brand.
Well that's my intro in a nutshell!
I actually became a member back in January but now I am a premium member. I am purchasing a 2002 Honda ATV and it needs some work. Fairly new to the ATV world. I have worked on automobiles/trucks and small engines for most of my life as a hobby. From what I have seen so far it is a very helpful community on here and excited to have joined.
Joined a few days ago. fixing up a 01 Bayou 220.
Finally got to spark this evening with a New Igniter, CDi box and after getting the correct key switch,with help from a member on here providing me a wiring diagram. carburetor was removed for attempted cleaning by previous owner, so im putting a new one on it, All the plastics are in good shape, but not on the machine except for the front "hood".. all the fasteners for them were MIA, so i'll probably just remove the plastics to keep them from flopping down or do a poor mans ziptie job and make it look half way decent.
any recommendations for a good cheap place to get tires for it? don't need mudding tires or anything. just need tires that will hold air.
