  1. Just to say this hasn’t happened since my last post so I’m happy out.
  2. Thanks guys, I ended up selling my Big Bear it was a nice old quad but an offer of a 2012 Suzuki Kingquad 400ASI Popped up for a good price so I bought it after taking it for a spin I’ve gotta say it’s a lovely bike to ride. I live in Ireland where Honda is generally the most desired brand but my dad brought back an old Suzuki Eiger 400 from America and it’s been bulletproof so it was a big influence. It’s great to have a site with people like yourselves to give advice. Thanks again
  3. Yea it’s only happened maybe twice but still worrying. It’s a lovely bike to ride and a real work horse too I know you guys tend to have the bigger quads out there but this is great for its size.
  4. Hi Frank thanks for the reply it’s an automatic it only happens sometimes mostly it’s a great machine
  5. Hi bought a 2012 kingquad ASI last year a great machine which is a delight to ride, but I find sometimes it doesn’t go into top gear just revs high at about 42mph. Any idea ???
  6. Hi thanks for replies it’s got a switch and Two wireless remotes. It’s a different brand to D Rhino I think it’s a UK based company obviously not made there as they are fairly cheap it seems a nice solid unit. Haven’t tried it out yet but will let you all know how I get on.
  7. Hi all just started to mount a winch on my kingquad 400 using a kfi mounting plate and the holes don’t line up. The winch is Rhino 3000lb not sure if you have them in the States they’re an Amazon job. I was wondering can I just drill the mount out to make it fit, the holes are fine depth wise it’s just the width trouble is it’s not out a great deal and as the holes are countersunk they will overlap I don’t want a loose winch. Dunno if you can make sense of all that but any help would be appreciated thanks.
  8. Hi bought this quad with a few leaks and other issues which thanks to excellent advice from these forums I thought I’d sorted them till I washed it down and found oil underneath. It is coming from the seal around the gear changer pedal as it looks like someone has banged the housing flat on one side. Knowing how easily aluminium is broken I don’t wanna risk tapping it back into shape. Would a new seal fit or would the distortion of the housing render it useless. thanks in advance
  9. Hi all, bike does start with the electric start mostly, but the battery was weak and wouldnt start it the other day so went to use the pull start, to say its hard is an understatement first of all you gotta do a little jiggling about til it catches then pulling it takes some effort now i know im not the strongest fella in the world but this is so much harder than it should be. It does start of the pull just to get the engine to initailly turn is so hard any ideas why its happening or how to fix this, Thanks
  10. Mines a bit choosy about wanting to start too, but will "eventually" go on pull start the only thing is the pull start is so hard to pull and can take a while and i have to do a flicking type manouver to get the pull start to catch is this normal ? Thanks
  11. My old fella thinking he’s John Wayne on his Suzuki Eiger 400
  12. It was the front left wheel bearing after all, new ones ordered and on route 👍🏻
