06kfx440

06 kfx 400 lies.

Recommended Posts

So I traded my worked banshee for a supposed to be kfx400 with a 440 kit and hot cams with yoshimura pipe. Well I overlooked it now and came to the conclusion that it's a stock quad with a pipe. How do I know you ask?

 

The cylinder jug has 2 bars on it and every other has 3 for the big bore.

 

He only jetted the carb not buy the new one that's supposed to be bigger.

 

The cams are stock. After pulling the cover off.

 

And it's slower than the banshee.

 

Now that's why I won't believe anything this kid says. Shit. He doesn't even know how to mix oil to gas. Has no clue how 2 strokes even work. Can't figure out how to jet for temp changes.

 

But I guess I'll be happy with what I have.

 

The point is. Don't trust people when buying bikes.

It’s always a risk when buying from another person.  I always bring a few tools along to open up a few things on the bikes I buy if they allow it and why shouldn’t they if there’s nothing to hide? A wire brush to clean a vin# so you can do a quick run on it to verify year model etc. But karma is a bitch! What goes around comes around! 

Better off anyway bc if he can’t jet a carb then you sure as shit don’t want him banging out cams!!!!

Yeah no kidding. At least I know what I'm doing with machines. If something breaks then it's a clean platform and I know what's done. I gave this kid all the papers for the banshee build. All the way down to the torque specs. But he has his hands full. He doesn't even know about simple things. Like what oils to use or how to adjust the clutch. He is clueless.

Karma sucks for him. He texts me all the time asking questions. I tell him to figure it out. I can't hold his hand. That's now his quad. LEARN IT.

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!

      After looking at the wire diagram I saw the blue w/black stripe wire is coming from the neutral and reverse lights looking for ground thru the neutral and reverse switches. If it finds ground, the lights come on. The same wire also comes from the neutral relay looking for ground at the same neutral and reverse switches. So it was easy to trick the relay into thinking the engine is in neutral all the time without having the light on all the time. Just cut the blue w/black wire at the relay and ground it. Easy
      Sorry the pics aren't better




      Now it starts in any gear and indicator lights work as they should.

      I was reading another forum recently about fuel leaks and possibility of fire happening. Reminded me of an incident I had a few years ago while working at a Can Am dealership. The quad was a stolen & recovered Outlander 650 that had been tampered with. These quads have an electronic safety system, similar to their DESS system on the sleds. You cannot bypass the key switch and get spark without a computer with factory software. Anyway, I was trying to determine what was damaged since the thief had attempted to hot wire various electronic parts. I got all the extra wires removed and things looked back to stock. Pulled the spark plugs and was going to check for ignition and if the starter still worked. Well, they both worked alright and guess what - the cylinder was flooded with fuel! Instant flames with gas spraying all over...great!! I managed to use my hands to put out the fire, good thing I had on gloves (but choked they were ruined of course, haha). Seems it's possible to flood an engine with efi when you put power straight to the injectors, doh! As in much of life, you cannot take things for granted (I'd only seen carbs flood like that). And even though it had spark, the quad still needed a new ECM to run - that part alone was $1200. So lets hear your stories, crazy stuff happens every day I'm sure.
