Aside from changing the oil and filters etc. what do you guys routinely do to maintain/tune-up your quad while the "season" KS over and the machine will be basically over for a few mos. I have a 2006 Sportsman 500 EFI APand I want to keep it a long time and want to do all I can to see that that happens.

Thanks in advance for your time,

Bill

Yes all fluids changed. If you have 4x4 check all shafts and diff fluids. Take off plastics and do a visually frame/chasis inspection. Remove all electrical connectors and fill with dielectric grease. Use a ethanol treatment in gas tank. Thoughly clean off seasons mud and gunk. Any machined surface gets a spray of wd40 except for brake rotors obviously. Spray cleaned plastics and tires with armor-all or spray wax. Check tire pressure. Remove spark plug and put a couple teaspoons of motor oil in there. Crank over motor for a second then reinstall plug.

I would add to the great list of "Things To Do" above - grease any zerk fittings on your bike. :seeyac:

^^^ forgot that one as my bike doesnt have those but most sport quads with swing arm suspensions need the swing arm assembly taken apart and repacked with grease.

      Got my first quad this past fall a 2011 Grizz 700 EPS, and now that spring is getting close I'm thinking about getting back to work on maintenance stuff. So couple questions...
      1. What are some regular maintenance points that are done in the spring on these machines?
      and
      2. What are the regular maintenance points that are done every so many miles that I should look to do?
      Other than changing out a torn CV boot and cleaning some crap out of the air intake foam in the fall I really haven't done anything to the Grizz. So not knowing its maintenance history I'm assuming it's due for everything...all fluids changed out etc.
      Oh btw it's only got about 750 mi on it right now.
      Thanks I'm all ears

      Currently, QUADCRAZY is undergoing site maintenance and upgrades over the next few days. There are a few sections that are down: Video and Trails. They should be back up in a few days as everything else is done first.
      Most of the work is due to security updates and getting ourselves up to date. We've made so many additions over the past few years, things internally are not working the way they should be.
      I am glad to say that we were offline for an hour or so, and now back up. People can log in and all.
      The chatbar is gone for now to set up for a newer style bar. The chatroom has been defaulted to our original basic chatroon. I'll bring back the other chat in a couple of days.
      Our video section is getting a little overhaul also.
      Trails will be down through next week.
      User's garages are also down for now.
      Please post in this thread if you experience issues outside of this stuff. Thanks!

      While cruising, my 2011 750 king quad suddenly shut down. As it happened, red lights on the display flashed. Any ideas? My head lights suddenly stopped working about a week ago, if that helps. I have no power at all. Thanks
