I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him. I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines? Pros? Cons? What weight should be used in what type of weather? Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned? What about performance? Engine Life? This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
Just a couple of things since i get various atvs.
They always need seat cover and always need oil and other minor items.
My question is Do you buy any specific motor oil for them, i heard you must get atv oil or will mess up the clutch.
Not sure if correct but didnt want to find out hard way. Is there a cheaper oil or can you use regular motor oil?
Next they always need a new seat cover, any good places to buy bulk or cheap vinyl to re do the seats with out spending
30-50 dollars on a specific cover?
whats you go to places for parts, i use amazon, ebay any others that offer a good deal?
that goes for hard parts or just cables and or clips, wiring, bolts etc no wrong answer here.
always looking for new ways to find parts for the older atvs. TIA Az
Saw this in the news...was this anyone here????? 🤔
13 ATVs and dirt bikes impounded from N.J. wildlife area. Riders face list of charges.
State officials charged several people with various violations and impounded their ATVs and dirt bikes last weekend from the Greenwood Forest Wildlife Management Area in Ocean County, authorities said.
Police officers with the state’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation were investigating illegal off-road vehicle use in the management area on Saturday, July 25 when two ATV riders tried to flee, officials said.
When officers caught up with them, they issued summonses for criminal obstruction, interference with the duties of a conservation police officer, and violations of wildlife management area use. The two ATVs were impounded, police said.
The next day, a group of ATV and dirt bike riders from northern New Jersey drove past several “NO ATV” signs posted in the wildlife area known as “clay holes.”
Clay holes, or “blue holes” are former gravel or sand mines filled with water. They are popular, although dangerous, destinations for teenagers and adults looking to beat the summer heat.
Officers issued summonses to the riders for illegally operating off-road vehicles and for driving unregistered vehicles. They also wrote tickets for illegal swimming, possession of alcohol and entering a restricted area.
In all, 13 ATVs and dirt bikes were impounded. The owners are facing fines starting at $274, and impound, towing and storage fees of at least $300, conservation police said.
In a statement, police said “only registered, insured, street-legal vehicles are permitted in Wildlife Management Areas. Vehicles may only be operated on established roads and parking areas.”

After looking at the wire diagram I saw the blue w/black stripe wire is coming from the neutral and reverse lights looking for ground thru the neutral and reverse switches. If it finds ground, the lights come on. The same wire also comes from the neutral relay looking for ground at the same neutral and reverse switches. So it was easy to trick the relay into thinking the engine is in neutral all the time without having the light on all the time. Just cut the blue w/black wire at the relay and ground it. Easy
Sorry the pics aren't better
Now it starts in any gear and indicator lights work as they should.

Hi everyone in quad land. I have actually had my quad for a couple of years but decided to get on here and interact with other quad owners and chat it up a bit. I have really been a 3-wheeler guy back in my younger years (and currently have an 87 Honda 200x that I am restoring) but since 3-wheelers have gone bye-bye, I decided to get a nice quad. I have always been the type for something fast and I happened upon this new Honda TRX700xx that my local Honda place had that they were trying to move since it was an 08 model and they were coming into 2011. I was able to get it for half price. Now I know there are those die-hard Yamaha Raptor guys and others, but I really couldn't turn this one down for the price and I am really enjoying the torque, power, and smooth ride of this quad. Are there any central Arkansas quad owners out there?
Im the new guy. Im from Rogers Arkansas and i love riding:) found this board by accident but I LOVE it so far, IM looking for more people to ride with in Arkansas or Oklahoma (Little Sahara) or Missouri. Also just lookin for new friends to communicate with on the Forum:)
Anyways I have Pics of my Quad on my profile. Anyone that is close to my area or that just wants to talk drop me a message.
Thanks Blaze:cute: :tongue:
