Well the trade I made my daughters eton 90 for the Honda xr100 has bitten me in the Bum pretty good. I worked today welding a crack in the exhuast & wed. I adjusted the valves the bike seem to be running good I put the pipe back on less than an hour ago and took it for a test ride and ended up pushing it home. Now I need a timing chain and I'm pretty sure rings should be on the list. Now I am pondering if it's worth the money to fix.:aargh: I shoud have put the Eton up for sell to see what I could have got for.

I traded Jenns Eton 90 that she was to big for NADA was around 400.00 so if I use that as price paid and not what I gave for the quad which was 800.00 2yrs. ago. I may in the end have close to 1,000 in the bike and thats around the NADA on it. Now If my daughter likes it and rides it once the bike is done it might be worth the money I will be putting into it a little at a time but for reselling I might go in the hole. That would include a new set of rings but I don't know what it will cost to get the cylinder redone for stock size rings or bore it and go with a new piston & rings. A BBR big bore kit is 300.00 so that would put me over budget. I had priced what it needed and was at 3 to 350.00 before the timing chain.

      Quad starts fine and revs fine in my back yard. On a test ride it falters badly. No power. I have cleaned and rebuilt the carb, cleaned the fuel tank, installed new fuel filter, changed fuel line and cleaned the air filter. Any help would be appreciated.

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      So I’m 14 years old right now..... I’m a pretty good rider for my age, I have a 98’ 300ex that I’m tryna sell. I’m thinking of a 400ex or should I skip the 400 and just go to a 450r or something along those lines?

      I've been riding Suzuki Kingquad 300's for the last 20 years. I have 3 of them. I love the low gearing, low center of gravity, low rider position, low racks shaft drive and smooth ride, but they are getting old and I'm tired of fixing them. Best engineering of any utility quad, IMO, but the execution...build quality is not up to par with Honda, so the price you pay is lots of wrenching.
      I positively despise CVT type belt drives. My neighbor has a couple of old Hondas, Rancher and Rubicon and I admire the reliability of them. He does very little maintenance and they always run and have pulled my Kingquads home for me when they break.
      Is Honda the only company that makes ATV's that don't have CVT? I like the build quality but I don't like the high rider position caused by the vertical cylinder, the cold nature of them, having to warm up for several minutes and the plastic skid plates. I guess all modern ATV's have the same issues, though (correct me if I'm wrong).
      Been checking with the dealers, it seems Honda foot shift models are scarce. I really don't need devices/gadgets to decide which gear I need to be in. So I'm avoiding the DCT models. I must have IRS and EPS because of my age and physical condition though.
      Is it possible to get a Rancher with IRS, EPS and foot shift? The specs I'm reading show the rancher is 2" lower than the Rubicon. I'm assuming that to be seat height. With vertical cylinder design, the more you grow the engine, the higher you push the seat....at least that's my thinking.
      Any comments from the Honda experienced?
