Yeah, that's the bummer with buying the Chinese/Taiwanese knock-off quads. You kind of either have to become McGyver, "jimmy-rig it yourself" kinda guy or consider them disposable. Luckily they are generally cheap. Unfortunately, they are filling up our landfills and making a fast buck for China.

You likely WON'T find any information on this company or replacement parts. Best is to research what quad it looks like they knocked off (usually, pretty much exactly - except for the important stuff) and see if those parts will work for you. Sometimes that can get you close to what you need.

Glad you were able to figure it out.

It's a pretty common question we see here, where someone has a non-brand quad, bike or UTV that they do need to do some work on but no manual exists for it and you can't get parts.

Best bet is to realize those things are nearly always reverse-engineered from something that already exists. Look around, figure out what it looks like - they don't try very hard to hide it. Often the name is even almost identical!

The Powersports Dealer Expo each year is always busy with unpronouncable companies showing their "new" models, the big mfgs figuring out where that design came from, copyright lawyers and law enforcement trying to do what they can before the show closes and that company disappears for another year. There's always drama somewhere.

The biggest loser is some little kid somewhere whose bike runs for about one ride, and then he's left in tears when it can't be fixed. Glad you kept at it.
