    • Ha..  funny story about the guy frying his belt.. There was a guy in here called Guy a while back bad mouthing the aftermarket belt/pulley system he'd bought and not been able to set up himself..  He reckoned he was frying belts one after another..  He though didn't know what he was doing.. Belt drives are generally pretty reliable it seems these days though. In the rough though, trying to get out of holes or over logs, they really aren't made for it, the owners manuals warn you against doing things like that to your bike.. Belt drives are really only good for cruising around recreationaly. There are more variations of semi-auto or auto than just belt drive though. Some are fully mechanical systems that can take the hard treatment.
    • There's an owners manual in the manual section of this site that tells you how to diagnose a no spark situation.  I had a look and I see the wire colours are different to the colours you mention but that's quite common. You will have to figure out which set of wires are which by the numbers of wires there are of each colour, and by their ohm readings. There's no wiring diagram and so it's hard to tell whether the kill and ignition switches should be connected or disconnected for run. I'd leave them attached. The engine is a four stroke and has it's engine oil in the sump and shouldn't need anything else oiling. To check for spark you should take the spark plug out of the bike, fit it to the spark plug lead, and rest the sparking end of the plug on some part of the engine or frame where it will be contacting metal.
    • great thought didn't think of that could be something in the needle valve. got too cold around here lately. will try soon. does not die out just can't go higher than maybe 2k.
    • My first ATV was a Bayou 300 with a manual trans. It has been a work horse for over 20 years now. Pushing snow, pulling trailers and joy riding. Great machine.  Couple years back I bought a suzuki twin peaks, which is the same as a Kawisaki Prairie. It is auto (cvt) trans. It also has the down hill braking. Gotta say, sure is nice riding and not shifting all the time. But I only joy ride with it.  Since I have added a couple Kodiak 400s. Both machines are auto CVT. Very simple, light machines. Too light in some cases. But great for joy riding.  Growing up with CVT on snowmobiles I am probably hyper sensitive. They have come a long way and seem to be holding up well, but when we are out riding I am constantly riding and thinking, What was that smell? Was that burnt belt?  I put the high dollar belts on when I buy the machine and have not had to replace one since yet.  If me and the kids go riding we are always waiting on the person with the Manual trans (usually me) not for lack of power or top speed, Just the added time it takes shifting up and down instead of just mashing the throttle.  We don't normally do mud or deep water. So the belt always stays dry.  And don't buy cheap belts. Over and Over I read of people burning up cheap belts in 100 miles or less.  Last time we were riding there was some SxS guys at the park. We followed them through the obstacle course. First guy tries an obstacle and you could hear the engine screaming and SxS not moving. Started seeing smoke. He fried his belt, that was it, he was done for the day. Made it 100 yards from the trailer. LOL short day.
