The only one I can speak of personally is Buffalo Mt trails south of Boone Lake(Johnson City I believe). It has 60 miles of trail rated (by Me anyway) as rather wimpy. More of a family trails system....

Does the quad sit out in freezing temps in the winter? Sounds like it froze the battery. When this happens, the lead plates can fracture and turn a 400 amp hour battery into a 100 amp hour batt. Best...

Mud, oil, and battery acid can conduct enough electricity to drain a battery. But a PARTIALLY stuck solenoid is more likely. When you feel heat in the cable, feel the starter and solenoid too. If the...

Personally, I will never buy a used ATV from a dealer. Why? 1. Dealers with cover up any problems as best they can to move a quad or bike. Like a wash and polymer wax job to cover up scratches on...

Bud, good looking 300. Took some work to get it shining like that. A few bucks, too, I bet. Had one just like it decades back.

Is this smoke black or blue/white?

Crank it a few times, take out the spark plug, and see if you have a wet plug.

Is this quad carbed or EFI?

Engine rpm goes up as the sheaves open up, increasing the final output drive ratio, and increasing motor rpm and available torque. That is how a belt drive shifts to a "lower" gear. It is automatic...
