Some of you may have read I traded my daughters E-Ton 90 quad for a 83 Honda xr100. I should have done more homework some parts are hard to find. I bought a new Mikuni carb now it runs good & the master link came apart on the chain. I made a parts list but it looks like it is going to grow. I was asked what I would take for my Prairie & I said 2,500 thinking the guy would walk away he said he well get back with me on it this week I should have said 3,000 then I would feel good if he were to buy it.

i had that exact xr back in 2001 to 2006. it worked awesome. it pulled the front wheel in damn near every gear like you said too. the only problem i had with it were plugs. i went to a crackshot retired honda mechanic and he sold me 6 or so plugs that didn't have the resistors. they made the complete difference of no problem starting, but i'm sure the neighbors couldn't watch t.v. to good :laugh:

Ox now that I put the new carb on and got it running right the front wheel will come off the ground in 1st,2nd & 3rd now. Thats good for a bike that will be 30 years old I didn't expect it to have the power it has being a 100. I would say to get this bike in very good condition it's going to take around 300.00 to 350.00 bucks. Thats for the missing parts that I can get skid plate, chain adjusters, brake & throttle cable, tires & side covers last is (a repaint frame & tank I think I got that part covered.lol)

      Ok, so I bought a 2006 bayou 250 for 200 bucks, kid couldn't start it and had no idea why it wouldn't run, I pulled the rope and felt what I thought was valve to piston contact, he wanted 500 and I talked him down to 200 and brought it home.  Sure enough, timing was way far out, timing chain incredibly loose.  So for fun I re-tensioned the timing chain and re timed it, got about 120lbs of compression, pretty low.  I cannot get the chain very tight but the the tensioner seems to work fine, the chain guides don't look very worn.  Also, when I took the head off the valves don't look bent and the piston has no discernible marks on it.  Is this an interference engine?  I sure thought I felt some contact with the pull rope but maybe no permanent damage was done?  Anyway, I plan on doing a full top end job as well as timing chain tensioners and hopefully that'll cure it.  Is there any reason other than chain stretch (I measured it and it's ok) or guide wear that would cause the chain to be so loose?  Thanks!

      My Honda Fourtrax won't start. The starter is kicking the engine over, but it won't start. It sat for about a year while I was living away, so I thought it might have been bad gas. I completely drained the fuel, flushed the fuel lines and filled it with fresh gas. However, still nothing. It started and ran fine the last time I used it. Any suggestions on how to diagnose this? It could be fuel or electrical at this point. Is there an easy way to rule one or the other out? Thanks

      Here is the Polaris online parts catalog, looks like you need to register with then first. I haven't used it since I'm not a Polaris owner and don't need any parts right now...

      Hi guys I'm in the market for a new ATV.  I narrowed my choices down to King quad 750 Grizzly 700 and Rubicon 520,  I own a 2006 500 Rubicon right now and I like the reliability and power for plowing.  However it is not a capable ATV.  When quading with other guys it falls short with ride quality and ground clearance.   I also have a 500 King Quad 2015 which I like and will keep it for my wife.  It is very strong and reliable also.  However my plan is to sell my Honda Rubicon and replace it with a 2020 of one of the these mentioned above.  Can anyone give me their take on one or all of these machines and why you picked what you picked?

      Hi there i was needing to ask a question. I may soon be getting a UTV of one sort or another and not sure what is good or better to avoid?  So far i hear great things about the Arctic Cat Prowler and Havoc, and many speak well of the Kawasaki Mule all but the 610?  
       
       So what are your thoughts and especially experiences?  What have you had and used in farm life and trail riding that has held up well or hasn't?
