Here are some photos of my fishing Quad. I continually have problems with the electrics and the frame work rust is getting out of control. We do ride the other bikes down on the beach also, but Occasionally, and so I don't want this to happen to them. HELP!

Maybe if money allows you can powdercoat the metal parts. With the electrics use alot of dielectric grease in the connectors. Put a coating of liquid tape on tje ground connections

wow ..is rite ... i would tear it all down and powder coat all the steel parts .. and then paint everything else ..to coat it ... just to keep the salt from eating it away .. make shure you get a good place to dit ware they will sand blast it all and wash or dip it .. to make shure all the salt is gone b4 they coat it ... and any parts that you cand bake with the powder coat i would have them sand blasted or at least wire brush and wast then paint them with several coats of good paint .. then a couple coats of clear ...that way u will have a few layers to help keep the rust away .. for a while ... and with that you say they cost to replace there it would be wrth it in the long run that way ...

a cheaper way to go for powder coat is car underbody paint. it's available in spray or brush on. another alternative is like the truck box paint like rhino guard ...

This is a shot of the front nudge bar that has factory powder coat and a bit of my own after market abuse. Its not a real good photo now that I look at it, it does not show how the coating just flaking off.

Id like to strip the Quad down and have it hot dipped (galvanized) but I'm not so confident in stripping the hole thing, stripping it yes getting it back together that's an entirely new subject

i was watching the speed channel yesturday where they were building the new challengers, i had always wondered why this wasn't being done but then they showed what they did with the frames. they foam sprayed the insides, a 2 part foam, i have worked with that foam insulating and it is awesome stuff. it expands so much and the only precaution you have to do is cover the holes due to sunlight breaking it down ... its light and nothing can penetrate thru it ...

yes, basically the same stuff/concept. the foam i use is two separate tanks with two separate lines, and mixes at the trigger handle. it's dry in 30 seconds ....

i use the bbq tank style 20lb tanks ....

Spray Foam Kits - Tiger Foam Canada

Looks good Oxi but wont it hold water?. At the moment I put the presser washer on needel spray and spray in all the drain holes to get the salt water out of the inside of the frame and it drips dry for two days or so will it hold water?

      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

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      I'm having a problem getting a CDI unit that works. The parts list calls for a  4XE-85540-00-00 CDI unit. The one currently on the ATV works but there seems to be a problem with the spark advance curve. It will idle fine an rev. to about 1.5K then  starts bogging down sputtering, popping and basically running poorly. If you can get it above 2200 RPM it runs better. I have ordered and returned about 5 replacement modules that will not work at all. The unit currently on the bike has no part numbers or identification other than a Mitisibuchi logo. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced similar problems with replacement CDI's and if so what is the fix? So far I have not found a replacement CDI that will supply an pulse to the Ignition coil.
