Hello everyone, back from a crazy few months of riding, hunting and fishing! So I’ve added a storage bag to one of my bikes and loaded it up pretty good before we went out into the woods/trails etc. My son questioned me and said what do we need all that junk for? I told him you never know maybe a flat tire water etc.
Needless to say that junk came in handy. So my question to everyone that hits the trails is what do you have or recommend to maybe take with you before you go? And what would be the one most important thing that’s a must have?
And also any recommendations on a storage bag that’s not so costly and performs the best? I like my bag but not very good .

Hello all just recently acquired this atv which as you can see in the pics that it has had an unsheltered life. i did get it running and put some used tires on the front.
It still needs a bit more well needed maintenance, chains tightened and oiled. needs an airbox or air cleaner and other misc items.
I've got a Polaris and a Honda that I use regularly on my ranch so they see a lot of abuse. Fortunately, there is still a Honda dealer nearby but the nearest Polaris dealer is over 1.5 hours away. They charge way too much money ($1800 for battery, alternator, wire harness and fluids change) so I am starting to learn how to do my own repairs. The Internet is a wonderful and scary place when it comes to shopping. Where can I go for a fair deal? Is there a list of preferred vendors that advertise on the forum?

Ok, so got this thing, assembled, and even added acid/assembled the battery with a solid trickle charge and the battery is fine.
As far as I can tell, I have checked all the fuses I can find, but I have ZERO power to anything. Even the console will not light up when turned to ON.
Is there some sort of hidden parental/child disconnect or safety switch that I'm not aware of? ANY help would be appreciated.
Hey all, new guy here. I am wondering if anyone has one of these machines, that can possibly take a picture/tell me where the hoes goes from the timing chain cover. I took this machine apart in the fall of 2014, planning to rebuild the top end, and didn't get around to doing it until about a month ago. motor is back together, and I'm just curious as to where this hose goes. One end has a plastic ribbed fitting in it.
Also, the rear upper nipple on the carburetor.....what goes there? is that just a breather also or?
I have the rubber piece that slides into the rear of the gas tank with 3 hoses: 2 go to the rear, and 1 is just a clear piece of hose that isn't connected anywhere.
I have another one of these machines, but it is 5 hours away.
I guess that's what I get for waiting a year and a half to put it back together lol.
Hello everyone, I have a new to me 86 Bayou 300 that I just bought last night to get around the property. It wouldn't start when I bought it but it did turn over with starting fluid, PO said the carb neeeded cleaned. I cleaned the carb today but need to get the choke wired up as it was not wired up when purchased.
I'm hoping one of you can help me get this choke wired up. Coming from the carb it has 2 wires. 1 is yellow and 1 is black. The PO said I needed to ground one and put the other one on a switch.
Should I do it this way or is there another/better way to do it? I'd really appreciate any help I could get!! Thanks in advance!
