Howdy

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Long time quad owner here, but first time I've joined a forum. Looking to gain some knowledge on my quad, and just get some ideas for whats out there.

I generally just use my quad for utility stuff around the home. Hauling, plowing, etc. However, I've been trail riding a few times, and recently rode a buddy's KindQuad. I was floored at how improved IRS rides over a solid rear axle, and am generally just looking to get some ideas how to improve my ride.

Thanks!

The two are very diffrent. Everyone that I know that is not a sport rider has upgraded to IRS the only diffrence is some took longer than others.

When I had the solid rear I "actively rode" by standing on the quad and bending my knees on the rough sections.

Yeah, thats how I ride now, but thats because I have to. It was amazing to me the difference in ride when I test drove my buddys quad. Just made me wonder if I needed to change the preload on the suspension, or tire inflation, or even different tires. I guess thats what Im mostly looking for info on for now. No way Im dropping $7K-8K on a new quad when mines paid for and is mechanically solid. Heck, aside from the rear taillight getting busted by a friend who borrowed it, theres hardly any damage to the quad at all. Its in really good shape, and I would hate to drop that kind of money just for a suspension upgrade. :)

      New to ATVs, just got 400 Sportsman 4x4, installed new piston and rings, runs great! A few questions. On the "dash" there are warning lights but none work and there are no lables on them. Also there's a couple of switches that I don't know what they are. One is on the headlight cover to the left, a rocker switch, not labeled. Another on left grip labled "override". Can someone tell me what these all do? I would like to find an owner's manual for the ATV but can't seem to locate one. I have the service manual, but no owners or operator manual.

      This last storm was a bust, was supposed to be mostly snow, instead a lot of rain mixed in making for a slushy mess. Having a plow on the quad was a huge help as this snow was heavy wet mess, and falling temps making it a frozen mess. Snow blowers were pretty useless, I saw several people trying to use them.

      Just bought my first ATV and came across this site/forum.
       
      Small issue though. I'm registered through Tapatalk but it doesn't recognize my email on the actual site. Recognizes my username though.
      Can't reset my password and can't register. Contacted the admins but no response yet.

      I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. You'll probably be hearing alot more from me since I just bought my first ATV and I'll be hitting everyone up for advice and what not.
      Oh, and the model is either a late 80's or early 90's QuadRunner 250.

      Hi from Australia,
      This is all new to me, so I hope you can help as I go along.
      I recently purchased a second hand Raptor 350 in mint condition, it was still running original tread. Anyway to get to the point, this is my first quad Ive owned but not ridden. The problem Im having is that when I hit the soft sand both uphill & down, it tries to do a 90* turn without my consent or knowledge. Ive had a few off track experiences so far & Im not that fond of trees. Any suggestions of how to remedy this. Any help is appreciated.

      Are there any big riding areas in upstate NY, how many acres? miles of trails are available, can be had from one location. I'm looking for a good place me and some friends can possibly go in eastern half of USA preferably northern USA.
