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

Hmm, I wanted an '87 IT250 dirtbike, but they were really unsafe, so we ended up with a very safe 1987 Yamaha Tri-z 250... Not quite sure of my parents logic on that one.

After that, Polaris 250 Trailboss 2x4. There have been a whole lot between then and now, lol.

toolman we did the same with our SL70's my cousin & I had. We even added a motocross number plate where the headlight was & I also changed out the metal fenders for plastic fenders better knobby's and drilled out the pipe.

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.

      I have an 04 ltz and it started sputtering a little bit while going down the road and I was low on gas so I just figured that's what it was. But now I can't get it to start I completely cleaned the carberator put a new spark plug and coil pack in it and all it does is turn over. It has compression it's getting fuel and it is sparking but all it does is turn over any idea what it is??

      Turn on key, put it in Neutral, lights on steering column light up. NO head lights and the electric start switch will not work. Let is sit for a few hours, started right up. Sat over night and same issue. Checked fuses and they were good. Battery is giving 12 volts. Opened up the ignition assembly and it isnt getting any power it comes up as a .01 on the volt meter. Pulled the spark plug to check for spark and NO spark. Will not pull start either. Unhooked the battery checked the spark while trying to pull start it and got a weak spark.
      Pushed it into the garage and it sat for 2 days. Turned the key and pushed the start button and it cranked but the spark plug wire was off so plugged the spark plug back in and pushed the start button and nothing. If you jump the solenoid it will crank over but not start. Soo confused , anyone have any ideas?
