  1. Holeshot if i where you I would not base a quad purchase off of one place. Personally the mounds is nothing but mud and a utility quad is perfect for there. With that said that is the only place that a utility quad would be better than a sport. Most private land owners that allow quads to ride from my experience wont let the utility quads do any mudding as it creats a lot of damage to the area and they dont want to deal with the ruts and whole from the puddles. As far as the state land I have been up to this year you can ride anything but I personally could not see riding these trails on a utility as they are just way to fun on a sport as you can go much faster and there are a TON and I mean a TON (ha Mike5469?) of whoops that would beat you up on a utilty. Its all on what kind of riding you personally like to do. There are areas around that you can find that would be perfect for either type especially if you look on forums and talk to enough people. You will get in contact with people that know of places for either or. The web is a wonderful place. Good luck and keep us posted.

  2. I have an 05 with a full gytr exhaust, stock cleaner and lid on the box. I went from a 158 main,42 pilot and 1 1/2 turns out on the mixture screw to a 168 main, 45 pilot, and 2 turns out on the mixture screw when I put the exhaust on. It runs perfectly . I hope this gives you some sort of a starting point.

    the 158, 42 and 1 1/2 turns was the stock setting from yamaha.

  3. I personally have a 05 YFZ450 and love it. Carb and all. I ride all year round and it ALWAYS starts right up. The new YFZ has EFI also. The only issue I have ever heard about the TRX is they have an issue with the stock valves. I can tell you that if your a trail rider you would be crazy to not keep the Rappy. The only reason I have a yfz over the TRX and LTR is that I got a great deal. They are all SWEET machines and wont go wrong with any of them. But there is a difference in the ergonomics so if you can try and at a minimum sit on all of the machines if you can and ride them if given the opportunity.

  4. Well I finally got the rocks to try some jumping today and no wonder you racers love it so much. Dam its fun as all can be!

    Finally by days end I was able to clear 80% of the table top. And was clearing all the doubles on the back part of the track.

    My sons first real day on his Rappy 250.



    I had videos of him at least I thought until I got home and realized I did not press the record button hard enough. OOOOOPPPPPPS

  5. From the sounds of it your not getting enough fuel with choke off. So I personally would do a carb clean and check your jets and needle. Also if you can take a pic of the piece your talking about it would help out for people to see what your actually talking about and might be able to give you better advise. Quick question are you letting the bike warm up properly before shutting the choke off? I know my sons ttr90 has to warm up to running temp before I shut the choke off and then it runs perfect.

  6. Loosen bleeder, squeeze brake lever slowly until pulled all the way in. Now tighten the bleeder and release the lever. Now repeat the process and dont forget to check the master cylinder to add fluid while bleeding the system. Its best to bleed the breaks with 2 people makes it much easier.
