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.

      My four wheeler when i first got it seemed like it was very slow when i first got it and it had no throttle response so i replaced the belt and cleaned all of the rollers thinking that would solve the problem from what i read on the forums. well it turned out that it wasnt. so i went to the next thing i took out the injector to check it out and i seen that there was a tiny bit of debree in it so i cleaned it and it seemed to improve a little bit. but still did not solve the problem. i later found out how to find the trouble codes out from the lcd screen using a paper clip on the diagnostic port and it showed the code which stood for no codes C00. i also forgot to mention that the throttle position censor is working perfect. before i started all of this the four wheeler ran just not to its potential. after my friend and i did the trouble code test the bike wouldnt even start anymore and the injector would spray for a few seconds for the start up then it stops and the fuel injection light comes on and blinks. the four wheeler wouldnt start anymore. i took it over to the local shop and they hooked it up to the computer to see if there was any codes and it still showed it was free of codes. they hooked it up to the fuel pressure gauge and we found that it was making 22 pounds and it should be making around 43. i then bought a new fuel pump and put it in. it now starts and runs for a few seconds and then it stalls out and the fuel injection light comes on again. which then leads me to think it is the ecu now but i want to be sure before i invest around $500 more into it. any opinions on whether or not anyone thinks this is the problem or if they have had a similar problem before would be really appreciated. sorry for writing a novel and not spelling very well. also i forgot to put the year in the title it is a 2007

      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!
