Hi,

I was wondering if someone had an idea of what is wrong with my quad. It is making a knocking noise, burning oil like crazy, slow acceleration and over heating. I have taken it to a couple of different places to have it check and they say its the bottom end. Any thoughts?

I would say bottom end. Did you let the oil run dry or low?

It has never been sunk, but we do a lot of riding in muskeg. The oil has never run out, but it did get low once. That was about the same time it really started to smoke.

Thats all it takes. I will make sure mine is topped off each and everytime. I thought these things were just like my car. Don't fill them totally up if your going to run the p out of them. Not the case make sure they are always full.
