you know that you were sniffing that seat after you saw the old dude in gym teacher shorts pull up.



Speaking of the y, how do you like teaching underwater basket weaving?

I hate it. It's filled with disrespectful Canadian youths if you go at the wrong time.

haha, the funny thing is if you get one with a solid rear axle, you are more likely to flip than if you only had 2 wheels. They are just fine until you try doing a corner at any speed, then it is bring on mr wheel hop. Most of the new ones come with an open diff, but if you get on an old one you better watch out.


now for your perverts

Yea I've ridden a few of the newer ones. They don't make as much noise.

I rode a honda 200X ATC once. I couldn't keep it from trying to tip on me. I wasn't used to riding them either though. On the other hand, the guy that owned it had no issues and railed on it.

I tried a 3 wheeler when I was a kid before they stopped making them and it almost flipped on a turn. I was stupid and put my feet down only to have the rear tires take the skin off my calves.


So my A/C went from blowing frigidly cold to nothing all of a sudden on the way home today. I have had them slowly get warm over a period of time but not suddenly like that. Any ideas?

check to see if your clutch is kicking in on the ac compressor. From from there you can figure our if it is in the Freon system(Leak, bad compressor or pressure switch) or if it is in the air circulation system (bad temp selector or selector door actuator)

I guess the big thing is was the air coming out HOT or was it just not cold

Did you check the pressure yet to see if you have any freon in it. Could be a clogged condenser but all of the sudden like that I would guess an o-ring let out. Possibly your compressor seized. Check if the clutch is still functioning correctly. Mine did that a few years ago and it needed a charge. The shop I took it to couldn't find a leak and it was good from then until it broke down.

I haven't check the pressure or anything yet. I wanted some opinions before I spent money on gauges and freon.

It wasn't hot air just warm.

I had the AC in my truck go in spectacular fashion 2 summers ago. Yes, that hoopty used to have ice cold ac believe it or not!!!

In a parking lot jump in and fire it up. Crank on the AC and white smoke just POURS out the fenders and grill and hood scoop! Flat out looked on fire! I shut it of and jump out. At this point I notice a fire truck is already parked behind me and a fire fighter is walking up already. It's been seriously 10-15 seconds at most. I'm thinking damn, this is service!!! He asks if everything is okay and I tell him I'm not sure. Pop the hood and more smoke pours out. Once it clears it's a mystery... Can't find any sign of it. I fire it back up and the excitement is done. I send the firefighter on his way. I turn on the ac and it's hot. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Pop the hood and look for oily stuff and finally I find a fitting that let loose. Later that year I did an engine swap and did away with heater and ac altogether. LOL


But like they said, look to see if the clutch is spinning. If so, probably lost an oring or leak or something. Unless it's actually pushing out hot air. If that's the case it's possibly just the control box or selector dealio.

That's why your supposed to drift around turns! Sheesh so many senseless injuries could have been avoided by simply pegging the throttle and dumping the clutch just before turning!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Ok so compressor is kicking on and off and the lines are cold but just getting lukewarm air. I noticed that next to the radiator where the ac line runs that there is a hissing sound after I turn the truck off. Leak?
