Spun Bearing? 01 Grizzly600

Recommended Posts

Went to get Grizzly 600 ready for fall/winter, hard starting because it sat for a while. Got it started and was letting it warm up, then it just killed, acted like no fuel. Since it had been sitting, I put carb cleaner into fuel hose from the tank side of carb, then some Seafoam in tank. Got it running, throttled it up, then it backfired and quit again. Assuming it was still "lean" problem, opened vent at bottom of carb bowl to make sure fuel was coming in, checked out OK. Got it started again. 

While letting it warm up, had to wait several minutes on 1/2 choke, start to throttle up and start hearing a hard knock on upper right side of machine. Knocking only present on 1/4 throttle on up. Changed oil, thought everything was good, but found very small metal shards on side of waste oil container. Am I looking at spun bearing?

Machine starts right up, will run fine on 1/2 choke, starves out at no choke even when babying the throttle. No noise at idle or low RPM.

What do I look for next? (BTW, haven't done compression test yet)

Thanks... :(

      I recently got a great deal on a 2001 Big Bear 400 4x4.it sat in a barn for 2 years while the guy was in college,so it need carb work...got it to use around the property,not racing or anything crazy with it
      It runs GREAT and strong..no smoke or funny noises,just seems to have an issue at times ,when you hit the throttle it want's to die ,most of the time it runs strong.
      So am debating a rebuild kit or new oem carb...i got to looking around really good yesterday and found this broke off..( the bent tube where the pencil is pointing).... is this a part that comes with a new carb?..if not,,where can i get the part?
      I found a diagram online but it does not show the bent tube with a nut on it but says it a "Starter set" in the diagram(Number 21 in the diagram)
      I checked the petcock and it is getting plenty of fuel flow..but it has the common drip leak..so i am ordering a new one,..was going to get the seal kit but for the price it is about the same price as a whole new petcock
      Just trying to figure out where i can get this part for repair

      Hey guys! Stoked to be here because ive found its pretty hard to get help for mini quads
      I recently bought a mini quad (it's a piece of poop so i have no clue the make) and it ran perfectly fine. I was running it a few weeks ago all day and it worked fine and the next day when i went to start it, the kickstart bar was super hard to push down but i could still do it, then it would skip and finish off hard to push down.
      I have fairly intermediate mechanic abilities so i was able to pull off the cover and start playing around. it seems the kickstart spring is fine but i noticed a bunch of metal shavings. long story short i posted pictures and took a video of how things are kind of running. i assume the gears started grinding and now they wont catch fully, hence the skipping?  
      Also, im aware the main gear on the left has broken teeth, i found out the hard way when i tried to take off the nut and the teeth broke.

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      Has anyone had experience installing an in-line water heater? It gets to -20 F here in the mountains and I had problems last winter. It looks like they get spliced into the coolant hose. Runs off of 120v and has internal circulation pump.

      I'm fitting a new carb on my King Quad LTF300. From China. Only one I could find in UK. I think it should have 2 vacuum ports.
      The vacuum port for the petcock is silver coloured. I can feel the pulsing vacuum. Putting the tube to the petcock there operates the petcock100% perfectly.
      I can't identify the vacuum port for the fuel pump. The new carb is identical to the old EXCEPT that in what I think is the 2nd old fuel vacuum position is a brass upright port with a very small hole. When running, there is no vacuum I can feel and putting the fuel pump vacuum line there does not give a decent fuel flow - only a small trickle.
      Is this the fuel pump vacuum port - see photo?
      The carb came with a silver coloured screw-ended 1.5 inch long loose port in the box. See photo. Is it intended that you unscrew the brass port somehow and put in the silver one?
      I'd really appreciate your help At the moment I can only do 10mph in a stuttering fashion on the level!

      and put in the silver one?
