That sounds good! I haven't met anyone around here yet with an RC. It would be good to get together and make some noise!

Good to hear from you again iceman! Hey i have a question for ya seeings how you live in Glendale area. There is an Amsoil dealer in Peoria, do you know anything about them? I called and left a message and also emailed to see if I could pick some oil up and they haven't gotten back to me yet. Just wondering. Also, when would you like to meet up for a ride? I found some nice areas to go.

You good at working on quads??? I just picked up a 06 400ex for 500 bucks!!!

The kid put diesel in it by accident and he thought he blew up the motor so he let it sit. I changed the plug which was fouled and cleaned out the gas tank but I can't get the thing to start up. The oil was also low when I changed it so I am hoping the motor isn't seized. If it is it won't be that bad as I can always buy a 440 big bore kit

well first off will it turn over at all? Also did you go through the carb to get that crap out? If it turns over then obviously its not seized, but check the compression on it. The quad that i'm working on is a Bombardier DS650. I rebuilt the motor on it. the guy overheated it in Glamis and poured water on it to cool it down. Not the greatest thing to do.

Well when it turns over how is the speed? normally you can get an idea by the speed of the engine if the compression is do. If it spins a little fast then it may be low. Also, you can get an idea by just pulling the plug and putting your finger over the hole. If it blows your finger off with some force when you turn it over the compression is still good. Give those a shot before looking for a compression tester. Also, try a little carb cleaner in the cylinder for a little jump start, but not a lot of it.
