Poll what did you start out riding on


Recommended Posts

A 1983 Honda 185s ATC 3 wheeler. Which is still running strong today, starts first pull almost every time.

Sorry, that was my first official off road toy

I started in the mid 70s on an old Honda 90 stripped for off road bush riding. Wasn't the best but it was all I had

i started out on an 86 polaris trail boss 250 that i got for christmas when i was 16. i pushed it home more than i rode it i think. but i had one to ride so it was fun anyway. went from that to a suzuki 500 quadracer 4x4. then i bought my warrior and now i graduated to bigger and better things with my 700 raptor.

I started out in the 70's with a Honda 50, the type that looked more scooter than bike. I pieced it together from 3 bikes I bought in various states of repair. Not too classy, but it got me there. Next was a CZ 250 red frame that I kept into the early 80's. Kids, family, work, etc... took priority for years then, until I got my first quad in '04.

The scooter looking must have been the QA50 I thought they looked cooler then the mini trail50. A QA was the first bike I ever rode. My friend came to my house on his. I had been asking my dad for a bike. He ask my friend if I could ride his and if I made a lap around the house without crashing he would buy me one. I almost took out the carport railing, 1 tree & the shed but I made the lap and he stuck to his word. The only problem was I was wanting a Honda like my friends and I got a rigid frame mini bike. Once I found the govner I could flip it with my foot and blow the 50's away in a drag race that was the most fun I had with it other wise it would beat you up pretty bad on the trails.

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      I've got an 03 Prairie 360 4x4 that needs a left front ball joint and knuckle assembly. On the diagram (from PartShark - https://www.partshark.com/oemparts/a/kaw/50a852a0f870021a9c423c20/suspension ) they show the ball joint as a part of the knuckle assembly, extending down into the lower a-arm and held on with a nut. On the four wheeler I have, the ball joint is pressed into the lower a-arm and extends upwards into the knuckle assembly and is held in place with a bolt going horizontally, clamping the ball joint in place.

      Any idea on why the diagram is different and how I can find the actual parts I need?

      I own a few older quads mix of kinds a couple of  Yamahas, a Honda, can-am  a Kawasaki, they are older quads but in good shape the question of the day is....... what's the best way to polish up the plastic?
       I have found that Dollar General mold remover is good to get the black stuff off the plastic works good, but was wondering how you polish up the plastics on yours.
