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.

      I have bought a 1996 suzuki king quad 300 and I have noticed that it smokes but I have put oil in it and plenty of gas had to fix shifter bc the nuts and bolts came out somewhere. I have had to replace the wire for the starter but now when I try to start it it wont idle at all and when it does run it smokes really bad like a whitish blue I guess, and it likes to stall a lot. So anybody can help me out please and thank you

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. A year or so ago we got it running after replacing the kill switch. It ran great but after some use for a couple months it got a flat tire and for some reason we just forgot about it and it sat for some time. Before it sat i replaced the gas cap, fuel filter, fuel pump, petcock, battery, starter relay, oil and oil filter. I recently went to start it and it started so quickly and without choke or throttle but the ATV wouldn't move till about 1/4 throttle and it wasn't really a smooth ride until 1/2 throttle. it also would bog out randomly after you came to a stop and sounded like it was getting too much fuel. I cleaned the carb and adjusted the air/fuel screw to 1 3/4 turns out.  I also messed with the idle and the throttle cable adjuster up on the handlebars. It's safe to say it now runs worse than when i started working on it 2 days ago. It takes more effort to get started and bogs out idling after about 30 seconds. I tried adjusting the idle but every time i do it'll get to a sweet spot but after driving it down the driveway and back the idle will go up and down to the point where i can't put it in gear because the gears will grind. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      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

      I just traded my 400ex for an 04 predator tld. i was wondering how often i should change the oil and have the valves adjusted. it also has the front tire bent i was wondering what i could do to fix it? and what are some good cheap mods? i dont really want to change the sprockets.
      thanks for your help in advance!

      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!
