2006 LT-Z400 in SoCal

Hey Everyone. New owner to a beautiful machine here. A little background, I have never owned an ATV but I have ridden a handful of times typically through renting.

So though I have a little bit of experience, by no means am I any good at it nor too knowledgeable about the technical aspects related to working on one. I have worked on a lot of cars and have a good understanding of how motors work, just not the specifics on a vehicle like this.

I am quite obsessive with new hobbies and find myself reading for hours and always looking to learn. I enjoy getting my hands dirty and doing whatever work I feel capable of doing myself so I look forward to this. With the help of the info I find on this forum of course.

So about two days ago I had purchased a 2006 LT-Z400 in great condition with a few mods and visually spotless. I chose this machine after weeks of researching anything and everything from 50cc to 700cc with their intended purposes and owner testimonials. I narrowed it down to the big 3 within this class: The 400ex, the KFX, and of course this one. I strayed away from the Honda (extremely tough as it is so highly spoken of for 20 years) and like the Suzuki mainly because reverse comes standard across all the years and I love that it has liquid cooling. On top of that it purely just looks Amazing.

I wanted the ability to ride anywhere, enough power for the occasional dunes while not being too much for the tight trails. Emphasis on the trails as that's what I feel I enjoy the most. It seems I made the perfect choice. I got the chance to take it out to a local spot that had soft sand along the river and tougher dirt near a couple jumps. I was slightly overwhelmed but I instantly fell in love. I didn't push it too much as I definitely want to get used to it over a few rides and feel confident before I do anything stupid.

My apologies for the essay I just wrote, I just wanted to give an informative introduction and answer any possible simple questions. It seems like a great community here and I am excited to be a part of it.
