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

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.
