2007 Arctic cat 700 efi atv smoke

Recommended Posts

I just bought my first arctic cat. I changed the oil and filter. Now my atv smokes only when u rev the engine. Smoke looks white grey.. slight light blue tint.. when it. Idles it doesn't smoke.. Any body have a clue what is going on. The dealer said it's not the rings.. it has the 700cc suzuki engine..

when ones burning oil it will smoke when you get on it, or smoke worse then, its usually the rings or valve seals. it could be a bad gasket, clogged crankcase vent, but its usually rings or valve seals or both, I just sold a arctic cat with a 650 kaw v twin with just over a thousand miles that did the same thing, I sold it cheap as is because the last one I had that did that, a Suzuki quadmaster 500 with 1700 miles, cost me so much to fix,

Thanks Bayou Bill.. what's really wierd is that it started after I changed the oil. Th eoil was black. I just bought it. It. Didn't smoke prior to oil change. It only smokes while I rev the throttle a couple of times. If I just rev it steady from low to high it doesn't smoke.. weird. . U would think the rings would smoke all the time... the smoke isn't all that blue. It's more of a grey color. Like seafoam look when u add it...

I buy quads and fix them for resell in my spare time, I have bought several that had clogged carbs, valves out of adjustment, etc, that would idle all day without smoking, but when I clean the carbs, or whatever and get them to really run, smoke when you get on them, some a little, some bad, the quadmaster 500 would idle fine with no smoke but when I got it running right it smoked like a tar kettle, only on acceleration though. I had to replace the rings, piston, cylinder, they were all wore out, I put new valve seals in it too and lapped the valves, but the problem was the rings and cylinder, the nickel plating was worn through in one spot and the rings had around half thickness from new. in general in a car the rings will smoke when cold and get better when hot, and vice versa for the valve seals but ive found quads don't always work that way. anymore if I get a smoker after I get it running I sell it cheap even if I lose money on it. of course if I had a quad I wanted to keep and wasn't worried about profit I would fix it.

      I installed a LED bar, but have yet to wire it in. Would like to wire it into light switch circuit for low beams, assuming it will stay on for high beams also. I am an old fart so am looking for an easily accessible place if possible. 

      Other concern is current draw. It takes 2 amps. So wherever it goes, the circuit has got to handle an additional 2 amps.
      Any help will be appreciated.

      Hi, Guys. 
      Sorry for my English, I live in Ukrane, Kharkiv. 
      I have Can Am Renegede 800, 2007, g1, mileage is 430 hours. Happened issue with chain in first cylinder. Mechanic opened engine and found problems with piston, rings, cylinder, etc. So engine need full rebuild. 
      I found rebuild kit on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/06-10-Can-Am-Outlander-800-800R-Stock-Cylinder-Crank-Complete-Engine-Rebuild-Kit/253868930525?fits=Make%3ACan-Am&hash=item3b1bc475dd:g:NdMAAOSwew5a-bY9
      Price is really good. For example original crankshaft costs $929.99. Here full kit costs $999. This kit made by BP Racing ATV Company. Here is their website https://bpracingatv.com/
      But I can’t find reviews to their products. My mechanics didn’t used parts from BP Racing ATV before. And their parts not very popular in Ukraine. I’m afraid that I will spent money for this kit + delivery + pay to mechanic for a work and will need new engine rebuild after 100 hours.
      What is the quality of parts from BP Racing ATV?
      Is it have sence to buy this kit, or pay more and buy original parts?
      Maybe someone used this kits for rebuild engine. And have expirence of using this parts. What will your mind about quality of parts from BP Racing?  
      Thanks for your answers.

      I'm wanting to run Shell Rotella T6 synthetic in the 700 Griz but I can only find it in either 0W-40 or 5W-40 weights, and the manual says it's ok to use everything BUT those weights...5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40 and 20W-50.
      Would it be ok to use the Rotella 5W-40 or do I need to stick to what's specified in the manual?
