    Yamaha YFM225 Loud Exhaust

    If there are no leaks, its got to be the muffler. Is that an aftermarket muffler?

    Suzuki King Quad 300 Slow Running

    Is that king quad 300 an older one with the shift levers? I would do what you mentioned and just check it all out. If they have it in low gear, it'll be slower and its not really the fastest quad out there if I remember correctly. But a great workhorse and sites lower.
  3. That's a nice ride, but too expensive for me!
  4. Thats a good point. Looks like these will be reskinned textron machines.

    today the Bayou 220, tomorrow the world

    Welcome @Rick Shropshire ! That's a great price for a bayou or let alone any atv! Is that a three wheel from a motorcycle and rear axle of an atv? Lets see some more pictures of that.. I love seeing modifications like what you are doing, pretty cool!

    5 Mistakes ATV Beginners Make

    You have a utility quad, you'll be good to go! Exactly what @davefrombc said about the tires is probably why they look different. Is it a quadrunner?

    Rancher 420 Rear end rebuild

    Its good you know how to tear it down. Hopefully no internal damage. Those quads are normally great quads. The rear end is often overlooked.
  12. I was looking at their website but didn’t see the Atv plows any more. Good point, it can wear on your chassis but overall if the snow isn’t heavy, I’ve plowed a foot of snow with some difficulty. Even 6” of wet snow can be a headache.
  13. Great read and great points of view. The reality is that Trump tapped into what the majority was thinking. Had he been a little less “off the cuff” and had a little less of the women and name calling issues, he would have received even more votes because the working class was getting tired of: paying for government services for those who don’t work rising healthcare costs, lower coverages to subsidize uninsured Jobs disappearing from the US and economy not improving fast enough Open borders and immigration policies Less money in their pocket from rising costs and lower wages Working class people vote with their wallets and if they think they will be financially better with one party or the other, they’ll vote to better themselves. Most working people won’t vote for free money or “insurance for everyone” policies because they don’t feel people who don’t work should get anything free. That’s just not what this country was founded on and it’ll take years for people to ditch the belief that you have to work to achieve the American dream, you don’t get it for free. Views are going to be different everywhere and I for one think the tax reform is good and it’s about time these blue states start to look at their over taxation and entitlement programs. Internet tax should have happened a long time ago to even the playing field. It’s sunk enough retail businesses already. Just look at all the dying malls and retail stores that have closed. It’s the internet and not just tax but at least it’ll be fair play with tax. Unless the dems have a message that will appeal to the working class, there’s just not enough unemployed anymore to win them a seat. Criticizing Trumps behavior will do nothing, dems need to appeal to the working class. If you are a business owner, in most cases you love trump. If you are a lower earning individual, your taxes are a lot less giving you more under trump and companies are raising their wages. Plus, you now have more jobs than those unemployed, isn’t that something.

    2000 Kawasaki Bayou 300 4x4 Electrical power loss

    Could be the battery, might have not had enough juice to crank the starter and then just completely ran out of charge. The easiest way to test that is to charge the battery and then see if it starts or jump it with a 12v starter pack or jumper cables. If it starts, its the battery. If not, you may have an electrical problem.
