Greetings, Introductions and Invitations from NY

Recommended Posts

Howdy ya'll, I am just checking in to introduce myself, and try to track down some New Yorkers.

I have been riding for a good long time now, started when I was around 10, on a Yamaha tri-z, and have been on just about every other color since then. For most of the last 15 years I lived in Georgia, and it is a world of difference compared to NY. For about 5 years I worked at Durhamtown Plantation in Union Point GA. That was the best job in the world, where else can you get paid to ride a quad every day? And the best part was that every weekend, a couple hundred "friends" would come ride with me. If anyone gets a chance, its always a good place to spend a weekend.

Right now I am in Central NY but in the winter time I will return home overseas. I am riding a Can-am 800 Outlander, and we have around 1500 acres to ride on, but I'm hoping to find some other places and people to ride with. Because my quad is a loaner out of Ga, I don't think I can get it registered in NY and since finding new places is pretty difficult, I have been just making my own trails every evening after work.

Between real work, and working on the family farm, I try to cut trail for an hour then ride for an hour every night. I usually return home in the fall, but this year I will be racing in the Baja 1000 again, so I won't be able to go back home to the rest of my family until after the race.

So, pretty much, just looking to get in touch with some fellow NYers to see what the options are around here. Pretty much I prefer riding xc, I spent most of my life on sport quads, but I do like motocross too. Just not many people like having Utility quads hitting their tracks. :laugh:

Glad I found the site, lots of good info, and great folks seems like. Ya'll keep safe, and keep ridin'

Welcome I ride the Southern Tier all the time even though I am from PA. Check out Tall Pines and Demon Run just off of 17 in NY and Potter County just over the PA Border. There are some cool poker runs coming up in PA and New York Sept and Oct.

Hey O.B. When I am not in the US, I live with my wife in South China, Guangxi province. Its really nice there, but the only bike I get to ride has pedals. Sure does good to keep me in shape tho. We are hoping that this year is the year her Visa will get approved and she can come here for a while. I told her that she could just swim, and she mentioned something about her foot, and my butt... not sure, maybe I lost something in the translation :laugh:.

Swampcat, thanks for the info, I will check into those places, I was just working down near Apalachin, just off 17. Maybe I will load up one Saturday and hit a few trails down that way.

Everyone else, Thanks for the welcome!

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Does anybody know where I can buy a complete wiring harness for a Yamaha bear tracker. If not could someone send me a picture of the the colors of the wires coming out of the cdi plug and voltage rectifier. So I can get an idea of how I need to wire it. Also where can I find a wiring diagram for them?

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.
