Need help with 2000-2001 quadmaster 500 LT-A500

Recommended Posts

I am restoring two ATV for my bro-in-law and don't have the owners manual...I do have the service manual.

1- when I turn the key to the ON position and the motor NOT running or running....the thermostat light (red light in lower right corner of dash) is on right from the get go....is that normal? 

I suspect that should be off and comes one when the motor is overheating.

NOTE: the fan did come on after driving around a bit.

If that is not normal, what would cause that to be on as soon as the motor is started? Faulty temp/fan switch?

 

2 - what is the cheapest source for the various parts? I am looking for a speedo cable, and some various screws that hold the fuel tank cover and its side panels on as well as some of the small screw/bolts that hold the front fender.

also looking for some of the speedo gasket and dampers

DAMPER 34114-09F00 (looks like a gasket
DAMPER 34188-09F00 (looks like a rubber bushing and spacer)
 
 
Thanks in advance.

Why am I not getting responses? grrr

so the red light issue is fixed...used a multimeter set to continuity and I had continuity on a cold temp sender...bought a new one and the red light is gone...I haven't tested the new one in a pot of boiling water yet, but suspect it is fine.

 

finding that the suzuki parts are bloody expensive...ebay seems to be the cheapest source.

      got that 220 I'm 'servicing'..........  well it turned into a guts and oil job....  I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm.  also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust)  I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering)  I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...?  Maybe a factor?   What should the clearance be on the valves?  How should I check the timing on this bike?  (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)

      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.

      I have an unknown year Timberwolf. I have had to replace/repair some back yard wiring issues. With the wiring fixed, I compared to my other Timberwolf quads, I have found a problem. Starter is always running. I can only get it to stop by removing the positive lead from the battery.
