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.

      Hi guys I have a 2003 Arctic 250 4X4 it starts idles and runs great for about 10 min. then it spits and sputters and dies but it starts right up like nothing happened idles good till you give gas and it does it again let off the gas and it's idling great again this goes on for about 15 to 20 min. and then it takes off runs good all day like nothing was wrong.
      I cleaned the carburetor it looked like a new one inside found a little gunk in one orifice, new air filter no crimped lines air line to tank good I did put a meter on the battery idling it said 16.5 V that's high I think would a voltage regulator cause this?
      Suzuki shop wanted to sale me a stator for $556.00 but said it could be something else also thought I'd see what you guys say about it
      Thanks

      I am working on a Honda sportrax I just got my daughter for get birthday and the reverse and neutral light are not working. When I traced the wire down I saw that it wasn't plugged in but I don't see where it is supposed to connect. Does any one have a general idea of where I should look?
