Thanks, I'll take it. The one I picked up is used so hoping I don't run into too many issues.

although the Chinese machines are getting better i would stick with a good used reputable machine the quality of parts is much better and less prone to break downs

Kymco isn't Chinese and I understand they make parts for many of the big name reputable brands.

No worries, buddy. I know you roll the dice on anything used, even more so on a lesser brand. Hoping it works out.

If I remember Kymco is Korean. Mine is still running but battery is finally shot. Never any issues and am surprised they haven’t taken off a little more. KIA has gone up in price and demand but so far kymco is relatively unknown in the states. Still big in Europe, Russia and Australia though.

Tiwanese. Not Korean. Kymco and Honda have business roots together.

Just picked up a used Kymco MXU 500 IRS. Found nothing but positive reviews and really enjoyed talking it for a test drive.

Picked this up at the end of October (2014). Ran well up till a couple days ago and now won't start. Turns over, but won't catch. It's been a really cold winter. Put some seafoam in but that didnt seem to help. Any thoughts?

Check plug  for spark and the carb for  fuel.  Seafoam  won't clean  out a plugged  jet if that turns out to be the problem. You'd have to take the carb off and clean  it  thoroughly.  No spark is  harder  to  chase down. First  check the electrical  harness for any loose or corroded/ broken  connections.If  still no  go  you'll  need a service manual to  get the specs on the components , or if you  have access to compatible ones to swap  out one at time  to  find the faulty  one.

The large OEM"s do not use Kymco as a supplier because they suck.

A good friend had a 300cc Kymco scooter he drove to work and back for years. He never had any issue outside of maintenance. If I remember right the last time I talked with him he had over 25k miles on it.

So you say they suck and then say your friend had nothing but a good experience...which is it? They also provided parts for Honda and BMW.

I could have written that better.  Basically the large OEM's use them because they don't suck!

The large OEM's use Kymco because they work. Meet the requirements given to them for production.

Honda would not use them, they are too picky. I have dealt with them when at my time with Bosch.

Thanks for clarifying. Didnt they actually split off from Honda?

Got it started with the pull chord. Wish this thing had a pressure regulator, that pull chord is brutal.
Ran for a few days and now won't start again.
Thinking sparkplug or carb but I'll let the Kymco dealer handle that after seeing where the sparkplug was located.

      Hello
      Just bought a used 2014 outlaw 90.
      I noticed at the top of the front shocks there is 2 mounting holes for the shocks. By the markings the shocks used to be mounted in the inner holes now the shocks are mounted using the outer holes. Googling I can't find the reason for these two holes. 
      2nd question is about the rear suspension
      When I push the suspension down it is very slow at raising back up. Should it be slow? Is it a safety thing for kids so it doesn't bounce them off. The spring adjustment is on the second lob from softest. Has painted arrows so I'm guessing it's from factory.
      Has anyone touched one of these machines and could tell me if this is normal?
      Thanks

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?

      Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor.
      In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber.
      Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut.
      If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video.

      Gibbs Technologies Ltd, the world’s only High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology specialist, today unveiled a prototype of the first commercially viable high-speed amphibian Quadbike/All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) - Quadski.
      Quadski is the third demonstration of Gibbs’ HSA technology following the successes of the Aquada and the Humdinga. It is capable of travelling up to 50 mph (72 kph) on land and water and makes the transition at the flick of a switch.
      Commenting on the launch of the Quadski prototype, Alan Gibbs, the founder of UK based Gibbs Technologies Ltd. said, “Quadski is both exciting and practical with a multitude of uses”.
      “I know consumers will love the fun of driving a Quadski on land one minute and then head straight into the sea or river the next. But there is a very serious side to Quadski as well: emergency services and aid workers will be able to reach areas and people no two or four wheel drive vehicle could reach.”
