in this thread, I want to discuss how 4-cycle atv engines work- what the different types are... how they are set up and which you prefer. To start off, are the cams on ALL atv 4-strokes powered by a cam chain? I know that on say a lawn mower or logsplitter engine, the cam is turned by the tappet, pushrods, and valve rockers. Which is better and why? Chain-driven cams or pushrod-driven cams? Are the pushrods just an old version and everything is transforming to chains or the other way around...or not at all? Just looking for some explanation, history, and downsides/upsides...
I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
'11 Grizz 700 here. Since I've got some warm weather these next couple days I've decided to start the bike after about a year of just sitting. Took out the plug and sprayed a good amount of fogging oil on top of the piston to help lubricate things. After about a minute of letting it soak I stuck my air line tubing in to suck out the excess, but it seems like I didn't get nearly as much in return. Repositioned the tube enough so that everything that was gonna come out pretty much did. I'll probably shoot some compressed air down the plug hole before doing the start just to make sure it's all out, as well as cranking it for a second before putting the plug back in. How long would it take for a bit of standing fogging oil to seep past the piston rings, and where would it go? I guess into the engine oil? The oil was fairly new the last time it was started but I'm sure it could stand to be changed after sitting for so long. If much of this fogging oil got into the engine oil should I do the change before the startup?

No lift , sorry I just put that tag on picture, But I first put ITP type 7 mags with mud lite 25'" tires on it, I think 25 X 8 X 10 on front and 25" X 9 or 10 X 12 on rear, all on 12 inch rims. It did no rub any on the front or rear and I even could have went up to 26" in the rear (Plenty of room) It gave me just at or over 2 inches in ground clearance. Man all the frame bottoming out went away and did I have some fun in the mud holes. This disgusted all my ridding buddys because I went everwhere they went and most of the time I was the first to hit the deep mud holes. Also If you want a little deeper sound just take the spark arrester out, sounds great. Caution though if you go from stock tires to tires like mud tires I went from spinning my wheels on steep hills (To steep really) to the rear tires catching fast and flipping it on me a couple of times. However I see you have a winch to weight you down in front.
The second wheel & rims seen in picture are ITP type 4 mags with the same tires as above. Let me know if you need some help on the thing i have changed brakes it and a few other things.
The above is a pm I recieved. Just thought I would share with evrybody.
