I bought a used Chinese 110cc atv. The seller had no knowledge of anything on it. It won't start but that's only one of my problems. First I'd like to know what I have. Its a 2006 and manufactured by Zhejiang Chisheng Industry and Trading Co. and Imported by Seaseng Inc. It has a logo sticker on the front that say "MDI". It has a large number on the side that says "110ST." Even with this info I can't find anything telling me what this is. Is it a MDI? Is it a Seasheng? What the heck do I call this thing? Second, after I know what to call this thing, where can I get a user and service manual? Third, It did not have a battery so I took a shot in the dark and bought the only 12Vdc battery that would fit in the tiny battery compartment. Obviously I had no idea if it had the cranking amps needed. Where can I find out what type of 12Vdc battery to get for this thing? Fourth, I installed the battery and the lights worked but the electric start would do nothing, even click a relay or anything. So I ran a wire directly from the "+" terminal of the battery to the starter post and it turned over but wouldnt start. I made sure the lanyard button was not the problem. Fifth, The remote control just blinks when I press every button. Does the remote have anything to do with anything? Thanks for any help !
New to ATV's so have some general questions on best proctices and repairs. This weekend a buddy came over with his 4 wheeler. He is much more experieinced and in my haste to try to keep up, I seem to have dented a front rim a bit. That tire is noticably lost some air but it does not appear to be bad enough to go full flat. First, I think I can knock the dent back with a ball peen or a BFH and a cold chisel. Is there any other tips and fixing this sort of dent in the rim? Last question is on air pressure. I was very surprised at how low the pressure is recommended. The tires on the bike are Bear Claws. Rather aggressive tread. Is there any rule on pressure vs terrain? Does one always stay with the recommended or do you go over a bit in rockier stuff? I am not sure if the dent came from a rock or a tree stump. btw...pretty much thrashed the bike Saturday! It was a blast and it performed like a champ! Got stuck only once in some really deep muck on my property. Definately need to add a winch to it sooner than later!
Im considering a new quad..pretty much any 450..I'd love a KTM 450 but the price drives me away..does anyone know how low a dealer would most commonly go on one of these bikes? (ktm 450 atv).. 2nd question is..could one use a streetbike helmet (full face) to ride atvs? I cant see why not..and It would feel more conveniant for me.
