    Just here for a manual

    I found this forum while looking for a manual for a newly acquired sportsman 500 and decided to join after seeing diversity of the members. I would have joined anyway because of the wealth of knowledge and the eagerness to share. I agree with Ajmboy. A little participation is a small price for all the benefits here. Thanks to all who contribute

  4. Yes I always use it. Not only for the atv stuff but much more. Glad you got it fixed !
  5. Thanks, I appreciate your comment. I never think about searching YouTube but my son regularly reminds me "Dad, YouTube is your friend". LOL
  6. Have you checked on YouTube? I seen a few videos on that item when I just looked. Ashe a long shot but there are a few with other bikes. Maybe that might get you going in the right direction.
  7. Success! Gloves, safety glasses & patience are a must! Small, straight jaw vice grips solved my problem. I clamped hook at the start and half way around, clamped it again. Cumbersome, but the spring stayed in position as I coiled it around. Each wrap, holding the spring down tight, remove, adjust & re-clamp the vice grips. After a few wraps, the 2nd vice grip was not needed, which made it easier. Eventually, the remaining coil is small enough that it doesn't fight back & can be put into place. Grease it all & reassembly from there is straightforward & easy. Hopefully, this will help someone else.
  8. My husband purchased this atv for me, his wife last December because he’s been out of town for 3 years and missed many birthdays and holidays. Last night on November 14th we went to bed. I stayed up until 1 in the morning on November 15th. At 4:30am I woke up to the atv gone. It had locks on the breaks. We still owe about $8740 on it.

  9. '97 Bayou 300 4x4 KLF-300C, but not really brand or model specific. I'm having trouble re-installing the Big Coil Spring in the recoil (pull rope) starter. I'm hoping someone knows an easy tip or trick. Thanks for all the help this forum has given me already!

    1990 Suzuki LT 4wd need help running issue

    Try adding a little choke when you try to rev it up. If it rev's up its fuel starved. The bottom air fuel adjustment is very very touchy. If you rebuild the carb. use a very small wire or get a welders tip cleaner to check all passages after you blow low pressure air backwards through the passages, spraying a carb cleaner through these ports backwards is also good, be careful not to get any cleaner in your eyes. Backwards means from the carb center back in to the fuel bowl or air inlet areas. Anything in the passage will be blown out and not inwards. Also try clamping off all the lines going to the carb one at a time. Found mine had been getting a little extra fuel via the vacuum port on the fuel pet cock. Have also seen a cracked vac line that stayed closed at idle and would open up when more vac was applied (motor rev up a little). Make sure all your lines going to the carb are in the correct location. Had some line change out and it either didn't run right or not at all. I've taken all the lines off more than one and started from scratch and fixed the problem. One last thing is most Japanese products don't play well with champion spark plugs. I personally used NGK or Nepondenso plugs. I have had a bunch of problems clear up by just changing the plug out. Even in cars, Had perfectly good running motor, changed plug/s and ran real bad, put the old plug back in, ran fine. put a new Ngk plug in ran fine, new champ and turd city.

    5 Mistakes ATV Beginners Make

    I worked at a Honda dealer in Vero Beach Fl. when they introduced the atc 90. We set the first two up as demos and spent every weekend at Hobart Park (about 2 square miles of sand dunes and a few wooded trails) where we first learned what they would and would not do, then made every effort to instruct customers on what we learned. Some learned and some did not. It was a sad day for me when those who would not or could not learn brought about the end of the 3 wheeler. Quads are far more stable and versatile. They should have been an addition instead of a replacement. Having learned to ride on a 3 wheeler I will always miss them. My advice to any new rider; the biggest safety issue with any machine is the operator, know the limitations (yours and the machines) and last you will never be it's master treat it with respect or it will bite you. Ride safe and never stop learning.

    2008 Teryx Cab noise

    I know this is a old post, did you find any resolution to the noise problem? I just picked up a 2008 Teryx, looking to insulate for noise and heat.
  17. No longer camping out but what a great year it was! New KQ Suzuki finished break in just before colder weather, with heated grips and new more aggressive tires installed!! Trails Inn Motel in St Helen Mi. is right down town, and right on trail head available for winter trips, even if just to get away for short rides and enjoying establishments there in town on quads! Any body ready? Might be too late this year, but I'm starting now to meet someone with the same enthusiasm to trail ride Michigan next spring/summer. Get with me and lets plan trips there, thanks Steve

    I have a few. One is 160+ acres all hunting and another place that's 120 roughly that's for trails and wide open fields. Both I know the property owners. Ellenville is 20 to 30 minutes away Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk

    Catskills around ellenville, I’ve been at the place since I’m 12. I’m looking for a bigger piece now. I’ve been looking for about a year now. We love to hunt, fish and ride so I’m looking for 50+ acres. Hard to find what I’m looking for. I’m headed up this weekend to look at a few places.

    No harm no foul. That bike started as a 100. Now it's a Kawasaki 250cc. With Honda bars and Yamaha electronics. But im. Pushing 39 and still ride. Where upstate do you go. I live in ny Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk

    Wow blast from the past. I remember that bike. One of the first bikes with the new type “full floater” swing arm. I had a friend that only rode that and RM’s. I remember Yamaha had the same bike color and all. Look at that kick starter. It’s like 5 feet long! I started out on a Z50 worked my way up to a cr80 to a 125. Started racing Kawasaki 250 cc class for a few years and fell in love with my first fourtrax in the late 80’s/90’s blasting through the woods in upstate NY and I’ve been Quadcrazy since!!!!! Ok thanks for making me feel like an old man! #relic

    I have owned Arctic Cats, I did have a Kymco Mongoose for a few years for the girl to ride, we sold it to a friend and it is still in use today. The smaller Arctic Cats of the time were Kymco based, Her first utility machine was basically a Kymco MXU, its 8 years old now, almost 10,000 miles on it and still runs well. I upgraded her to an Alterra so we kept the other machine as a backup and I use it for plowing. Mike

    what is a good 4wheeler with a manual transmission?

    I own Arctic Cats and like that they have a 2 inch receiver and an accessory plug under the rear fender for either a battery tender or for any pull behind machine that would need power. My first one I had for 10 years and put 16,000 miles on it then sold it to a friend for parts. Mike
