picked up this pos bike for $80 not running. took it home, cleaned the carb and bypassed the fuse- ran great (other than the rev limiter- those things are so stupid) Then one day out of the blue it starts flooding on cold startup and wont idle cold, but idles to fast warm. (too fast being about half throttle speed heh). I tried a new carb ($10) and new sp. new carb wouldnt make it run except on choke and then it was gushing white smoke. I had better things to do with my time so I parked it in a shed and used it for a work bench for a while... this last weekend, I wanted to take it along with the sportman to a mens retreat to let the younger boys have some fun on it-- took about 30mins to pull all the crap I had accumulated on it and then rolled it down to my workshop, put the old carb back on after adjusting the needle clip up two notches (leaner) and threw it back on the bike. Will turn over, but no fire. I didnt have time to check sp that day but just wanted some incite on what could be wrong with this quad (if it even qualifies as being called that)
I am new to the forum and to riding. I just bought a 2002 Honda 400ex and I love it. I went out riding for the first time last Sunday and I can't wait to get back out there on Saturday. My question is do you wear your wedding/engagement rings while riding? I just recently got engaged and I never take my ring off. It fits fine under my glove and I am wondering if anyone else has lost theirs or had a bad experience wearing it while riding.

Hello all. I have just stripped down the carb on my YFM225 as it is not running right.
I put it in the ultrasonic cleaner for half an hour and it has done a good job.
Nice clean jets but when I go full throttle it backfires, and there is a lack of power.
It also does not seem to take fuel in properly - it comes out the petcock ok so it is running freely enough, but it is not drawing into the carb.
If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful.
Hi all, new to the forum, looking forward to getting some help/advice on maintaining an 18 yr old atv! So my King Quad 300, recently started running really rough (otherwise ok til this point) at anything more than idle. After started, choke on/off, doesn't seem to matter, it shutters (Not sure how else to explain it) really bad when given throttle. I can let the engine run for several minutes, but this never improves.
Fuel pump checks out ok, and I don't see any gas in the fuel pump vacuum line. I am a novice on a carburetor, but I need to see what's going on, so after taking it apart, I have a question about this plastic part with an o-ring that is above the jet needle. Appears as if someone rebuilt this carb, because it is extremely clean...so I am wondering if this plastic part looks to be typical for this carb...or not. Thanks in advance for the help!

I currently have a 2015 Polaris 570SP that I bought new and have been riding for for over 20 years.
I don't do much trail riding or mudding like I used to when I was younger. I mostly use it around my 25 acres in the country as a utility vehicle (moving trailers, working on hunting stands and gathering firewood in the woods). The work in the woods sometimes tests the stock tires, but most the time I'm on high and dry ground. And every once in a while the wife and I will get together with some other atv friends and go for a day of trail riding. Maybe 2 or 3 times a year give or take.
I use the ATV year round, but here in Northwest Wisconsin, the snow depth makes it prohibitive to getting out in the woods or out on the frozen lake.
I don't want a snowmobile (they are such a bitch to get un-stuck in deep snow - I know because I have a friends 500lb sled stuck in 3 feet of snow and slush on the lake right now).
So I'm thinking about getting a tracked machine. I've never driven one, but have watched several youtube videos that are quite impressive. Especially for snow.
I have seen some systems are geared for snow only, and some that are all terrain. I would prefer to use a track system year round unless someone can convince me it's better to have tracks just for snow and wheels the rest of the year.
My questions are:
1. Between a Can Am 1000 and a Polaris 1000 - which one is better for tracks? I'm familiar with the Polaris AWD system and like it. I've "heard" that Can Am's 4wd isn't quite as good, but maybe that's not true. I'm open to other machines but these two are just my preference.
2. Tracks - all season vs winter.
How much of a pain in the ass is it to change from tracks to wheels to tracks each year? Are the snow only tracks worth it vs year round tracks? Can you comfortably trail ride (non winter) with tracks? I'm talking long, boring, well groomed, straight, flat dirt trails. At the end of 50 miles am I going to wish I had put the wheels on? How long are tracks good for? My machine will be garage stored and my annual mileage/hours will be minimal. Are there any things to be aware of in terms of warranty violation if I were to buy a new machine and put tracks on it myself vs the dealer? Any issues with stock axles, clutch or other components? Thanks in advance!

The Hop-Up: You may be saying to yourself, “that’s a chick bike,” and you’re right. But honestly, it’s so much more than that. It’s one badass bike. http://www.quadmagazine.com/quad/features/article/0,24942,1587044,00.html
