I just got done chaning the oil and oil filter
I also check the gear oil front and rear axle both were excellent in color (NO SIGNS OF WATER)
I did change it last year so I would say one more season before I will changeit.
I then checked the brakes .o.k.
I did change the Ait Filter [email protected] and oil the filter with [email protected] oil
I also did change the spark plug,I did notice the plug was good but had some black carbon other wise not bad .I may adjust the fuel mixture maybe a tad leaner other wise no sign of engine buring oil and I did not use any oil added to the crankcase for the entire 2009 season.
I just pick up 4 new knock off Dunlops KT's 4 for 100.00 bucks.
I was going to pick up a set of buffalo or Duro but for the 100.00 bucks for the Dunlop I think it was a super deal,I will mount them Next week I have a manuel tire changer from harbor frieght seem to pay for itself over the years.
The oil crankcase i ue the honda oil I think it took about 2 1/2 quarts with the new [email protected] oil filter
I think it ready for the 2010 season
I hope I did not mis anything
DID I MISS ANYTHING?

Sounds like you got all the fluids. You might want to check your wheel bearings, ball joints, and tie rod ends to make sure nothing is worn or loose.

wheel bearings
I most of the time check them after a long ride ,I think there were done 2 years ago and as long as they are only warm after a long ride by the hand touch.
I did check the tie rods and the complete front end that all was tight.
I like to trailer the Quad home to do the repair I have more tools laying around then were the Quad is stored upstate.
I just may change the battery later in the season I think it is 3 years old already I ride alone during the huning season and hate to get stuck deep inthe woods so I like to go over all the majors items not to say I can't get stuck .I almost last winter left the bike on the mountain for the winter seem the elect: shift would not come out of gear to get the quad back to N.I was in deep snow and trying to rock the bike was not easy but after a few rocks and using the manuel shifter tool it did get back into N.I find the elect:shift maybe twice a year give me a little trouble but nothing major.
