    ATV General Discussion
    yamaha was in good shape with expected nicks on the racks. stiffer than hell suspension and the spring was set in the middle. winch and moose plow. 2750 miles. tires were not even rounded on the lug front edges. $2,550.00. lawn rake went for $150...too much for my blood. turkey fryer went for...
  2. Rincon oils and synthetics

    ATV General Discussion
    Dan i had to replace my chains and tensioner in my rincon just recently. When that was done I switched from gn4 to 4t. Initial startup made the oil light go out instantly and the engine is smooth and quiet. After checking for leaks I took it out for a quick run and that oil made my tranny shift...

    Manny I think you are right about the zddp. I think if the oil film breaks down then the zddp will try and prevent metal wear. This is off of a different forum: "OK gents, inasmuch as I DON'T want to start anything here, I think it is my duty to inform you of what I learned not too long ago...

    Manny, here is a great article if you are interested. All About Motor Oil Under "Making motorcylce oils" read the third and fourth paragraph. I knew this already but the info was on my old crappy desktop (good luck getting it to boot up in less than 5 minutes, ha!). So I found it in this...

    I wish I could find the kinematic viscosity of all three of these with an ambient temperature of 10F. That would be about 100F cooler than the 40C and it would tell me ALL the rest that I need to know. Anyone who lives in colder climates knows that cold and initial startup can be a killer on...

    there is nothing like fall colors and deciduous trees. them lambs must leave a few brown apples here and there and my labs would probably want to eat them....scratch the lamb idea. what use to take me 3 hours with the old murray 42" takes me 1 hour with the 45" cub cadet. it just basically has a...

    lol, no i'm not selling the rincon. i figure if i can get that yamaha cheap enough it would be cool to have. you guys have to remember...i don't hate yamaha but i would be damned if i paid $8700 for a new one with features that i don't like on a quad. there will be a lawn rake there to and maybe...

    ..will be a '99 yamaha kodiak 400 4x4. i looked it up in nada and it looks like it was a $5,300 machine and bluebook is $1,700.00. i'm going to the auction but would like to know if this machine/year had troubles, etc. i'm pretty sure it is the kodiak. it wasn't a 350 but is definately a 400.

    i bet mineral spirits would desolve it really quickly. if you ever roof a house and get tar or your fingers...nothing takes it off as fast as mineral spirits.

    even if the dealer got screwed 50% of the time they would still come out even. i guess they always want to do the screwing 100% of the time. lol. too bad all the honda quads are not all irs. that would be very cool. i was looking at the suzuki and kawasaki quads and from what i gather only the...

    my old polaris (1991) trail blazer never gave me a problem for about the first 6 years but boy did that belt smell when it started giving me trouble. but i also abused the heck out of that machine. the biggest problem that i had was the bottom motor mount kept breaking no matter how much it was...

    changed out the differntial oils today for the first time. that was easy enough also. finally had nice weather again to ride and it was fun. i'll have to check in to the i suppose. so the 420 is a nice machine too, eh? that yami dealer is down to a couple used quads, an old suzuki 250 and that...

    if you look at the rear springs on the griz and the rincon, the griz are almost standing straight up. the rincon is maybe at a 45 degree angle. the rincon definately has the right angle for absorbtion of bumps. don't get me wrong, the griz is ok, at best, but not in the same category as the...

    no, i was comparing my '05 650 to the 550 griz. considering that i got my rincon new for $6k plus tax i guess if i had to get a new tranny it really wouldn't matter because i got nearly $2k off the sticker (it was a sale match) and i bought it in the summer of '06 new. i also believe my rincon...

    well, i'm not trying to dog the griz but anyone who is use to the rincon and then tries out the griz will see exactly what i mean. no, i don't own a honda dealership to self promote. the griz had a nice eps assist for sure. if i were to buy new again, i may or may not opt for that option. maybe...

    well, stopped down by the local dealer to give it a look and see what all the hype was about. first i looked at the rear end. pushed on the right rear rack and i expected a nice tilt since it has irs. no go on that. nothing like a rincon. the griz had the spring in the middle slot too. checked...
