MY GRIZZLY KEEPS TAKING A LEAK

-- Boss McKannick solves the problem -- Dear Boss, I just bought a 2000 Yamaha Grizzly 600. It has a fuel line or something hanging down at the rear and sometimes gas pours out of it. Is this a problem? What should I do? Stewart McTaggart Austin, TX That hose sounds like it is the carburetor float-bowl overflow hose. It should not dump gasoline out unless there is either something holding the float valve open (dirt/rust) and the float bowl continues to fill until the internal gasoline level reaches the…

KAWASAKI MOJAVE 250

-- Making it easier to start -- By Winston "Boss" McKannick Dear Boss, I have a 1993 Kawasaki Mojave 250 with a one-size-over Wiseco piston. During the rebuild, I had new valve seats, guides and seals installed in the cylinder head. The builder also smoothed out the casting flash in the intake and exhaust ports. It has an aftermarket exhaust and a K&N filter in the factory airbox, so he also installed a #135 main jet in the carb to get more fuel with the added airflow. The quad is now hard to start when…

STREET-LEGAL RAPTOR

-- Drifting from the dirt onto the pavement --     Jeremy Othelet is a Dirt Wheels reader who lives in Margut, France. In his country ATVs can be made street legal with the proper equipment. As you can see here Jeremy has turn signals, mirrors and a license plate on his quad.     His Yamaha Raptor 700 is a good quad to make street legal, because it has enough power to cruise along at speeds above 70 mph. To improve the power Jeremy added a performance exhaust and intake system, fuel controller and hotter cam shaft.…

25 YEARS AGO IN DIRT WHEELS

-- Remember the Mickey Thompson Grand Prix Series? -- It was quite a sight as you sat there watching from a comfortable seat. A pack of quads and riders lined up on the starting line, revving the engines of their finely tuned machines. Then, they'd all take off in a roar racing to the first turn. A little bumping and shoving might send a rider or two over the berm, but the rest would go sailing over jumps, flying across the whoops, roosting around the turns and fighting to be first to the finish line. This was the exciting…
