I have a 2008 loncin desert storm that wont stay running.
When it ran it ran rough and backfired a lot.
Now it will only start with throttle and there's a lot of unburned fuel (white smoke), there's also compression comming out the airbox. Is it the carburetor that is broken?
Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

Alright so I know that they all have their goods and bads. My options are the raptor 660 or 700(probably 700), ds650, outlaw 525, predator 500, or trx700. Before you rant and say this one is the period, I will have a budget of around $3000 tops. So that is however much I spend. After buying a raptor(660), ds650 and predator, I would have at absolute most $1000 dollars left. How ever with the raptor 700, outlaw 525, and trx I would be surprised to have any money left over. Now the extra money
Now what I know, the ds650 is a pig stock, needs uncorked and tuned and has no reverse but can be a beast and rides good, the raptor 700 is a wheelier and way better than the 660 but neither can hill climb very well, the 660 is tippy and weaker and hard to tune. The outlaw is fast and expensive but rides like a dream but can't power slide, the predator is okay. Good power good shocks, just a good quad but has some reliability issues. And the trx700xx that is a dream but is like 4k and don't come up from sale much. Correct me if I am wrong with any of these statements. So which would u choose AND WHY, I don't give a shit that u can owned a Yamaha since they started making em, why would u choose the one u chose. Thanks, and yes I did post this on multiple forums to get more views and more responses.

My boot on the drive shaft came off this weekend. When I tried to put it back on it appeared to be about 2" too large. Any explanations????
Also when the boot cam off, there was oil in the boot. Is this normal???
Thanks for your help.
2000 Bayou misses out about half the time.
I have done the following
Cleaned the Carburetor.
Replaced the plug and check the plug wire, its wire, Checked the plug boot it ohms out at 500 ohms
Motor has 125# compression.
I did find a barked place on the pickup coil wiring coming out of the motor case.
I pulled the cover and ohm the pickup coil. It ohms at 470 ohms. I repaired the barked insulation and reinstalled.
I replaced the igniter with a new one.
I was told that the voltage regulator could be the problem so I unplugged it and made made sure the battery was fully charged and started it and ran it off the battery only. Still misses out.
I added a jumper wire to ground on the igniter to make sure there was not a bad ground somewhere. I also added a hot wire to the igniter to be assured that the key or kill switch was not the problem.
Nothing I have done has corrected the problem.
Attached is a video. Note: the video camera does not show what the human eye sees. The timing light does not light when it misses but the human eye sees that it is dim during the times the video shows it not flashing.
Any Help any of you guys or gals can give me will be appreciated.
a couple weeks ago, i bought a parts quad, an 88 big bear. as it has been cold up until this weekend, i have not started determining what is salvageable, until now. i really wanted the trunk compartment from this bike, as mine was cracked. i also wanted the carburetor. as i started to dis-assemble the carb pieces, i giggled at what i saw and then thought, what a great fix !! the rubber manifold was like a canadian redneck fix, and very nicely done ... i had a cracked manifold boot and it cost me 70 bucks for a new one ... this fix is so simple ... take the rubber manifold boot off the carb and cylinder, wrap all the rubber with drywall adhesive fiber mesh tape, and coat it with hockey skate toe protector. the toe protector hardens solid and is very very strong if you have never been around it before. you can re-coat as many times as you like, but let dry completely first.
