I have three honda atvs. Bought a 220 Kaw bayou for my granddaughter.
At start up when it is cold you would swear that the rod is going to go out any second. After it is warmed up the knocking goes away. Any ideas?
Agree ^^^^^^ Yamaha needs to stick to sound equipment. Kawasaki???? well I dunno what they need to do??? lol JK all three have built some incredible machines in my day
For example the 1982 Yamaha YZ490 one of the badest bike of their time probably a good contender now?
AND Before most of you guys time.... the infamous 1975 Bultaco 360 a buddy of mine in Ga. had one of these things.
Things go off topic, no big deal. Very possible that the oil is staying REALLY thick because of the cold, once it warms up it lubes everything like it should. Try an oil made for more extreme cold. Be sure you are using an ATV safe oil.
