Recently, I changed the timing chain. I lined up all timing marks and set valve lash at TDC. The mark on flywheel was on point as well when I looked through sight hole. I started the engine and starter turned it over then it hit and stuck. I did it one more time and the same thing happened. I took everything off and saw no damage. I tried to turn it over by hand and same thing. It turns halfway or so and hits. I loosened valve lash and took crank gear off and it does the same thing. It will turn over clockwise fully but not CCW. It seems like the crank sub assembly weight is hitting the gear balancer weight. I can turn crankshaft CCW while turning the gear balancer CW and get it to go but feel it hitting something. I also can spin crankshaft CCW without crank gear on and force the engine to break past the stick. It’s not the piston.
Please give me some suggestions thanks
Hi everyone new to the forum. I’m looking to upgrade my son from an Eton brand 50cc atv. It’s 2 stroke and can take awhile to warm up in the cold months. Anyway, I found a mint looking 2004 Polaris Sportsman 90 ($1400)and a few 2015 and 2016 Arctic Cat DVX 90 atvs ($1800) in my area. Just wondering if I’m crazy for considering the Sportsman since it is 10 years older. Basically Are the newer atvs 2015/ 2016 made any better or worse than the 2004 atvs? I know it is hard to say without seeing them and testing them out, but any experiences in general may help me to decide. Thank you

Hello all. I have just stripped down the carb on my YFM225 as it is not running right.
I put it in the ultrasonic cleaner for half an hour and it has done a good job.
Nice clean jets but when I go full throttle it backfires, and there is a lack of power.
It also does not seem to take fuel in properly - it comes out the petcock ok so it is running freely enough, but it is not drawing into the carb.
If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful.
Have a '11 Crown Vic with 290k miles and I've been having a problem with the windows fogging up all the way around. The defrost seems to be working about half the time. On humid rainy days it'll work for say a half hour keeping the windows clear, then the windows will fog hard for 10-15 mins. And then it might decide to start working again, back and forth it goes. When I started it just now the compressor clutch turns when the a/c is turned on, although I haven't had a chance to observe it when the windows are fogging.
A secondary problem it has is that it only blows air through the vents on the front of the dash, straight out into the cabin. The air flows only very weak out the defrost vent at the windshield or the floor. It does this on all settings. Although this might contribute somewhat to the problem, it seems like the a/c does completely cut out as the windows will still fog hard with the a/c set to on and on full fan. When it cuts off the air in the cabin feels immediately humid. One that that helps somewhat is to turn the temp toward cooler and it seems to not fog as much and gives it a chance to maybe clear the fog some.
Any idea what's causing this or what I should do to start testing?
Got a 04 Sportsman 500 that wasnt running- owner said it needed a stater and a new battery. It ran rough (been sitting out in the weather for a while). A friend and I started by adding a new battery and it would start barely with the choke and his hand over the air-filter. I decided to install the new battery in the holder on the side. we had it on the rack because the old on was still in the bike. I tried to be nifty by turning the battery to put the terminals in an easier spot to get to, but forgot to reverse the cables too. In a sentence, I reversed the positive and negative on the battery like a dummy. When we discovered my mistake and corrected it, we turned on the bike, but the display did not light up and the key did not turn on the starter. jumping the solenoid worked the starter, so we thought the solenoid just burned up when I reversed the pos and neg... new solenoid and no difference. what have I burned up? Also, the shifter does not seem to do anything in the trans. it slides back and forth like its stripped in the trans. any help would be appreciated!!
I think the biggest issue right now is the electrical.

Hello boys and girls!:howdy:I need a little help if ya dont mind.I need to replace the rear axle bearings on my 400 but Im going at this blind having never done it before. Ive looked it up in the repair manual but it doesn't give any specific steps on how to do it. I've got the left rear brakes off already as I was replacing the shoes anyway. Can somebody give me a rundown on what Ive gotta do please?I know I need to pull the right wheel off just havent done that yet. Do I need to take anything apart in the final drive or elsewhere in order to yank the axle out for instance? Which side does the axle come out from,L or R? Any details I need to know will be greatly appreciated.Thanks ya'll!
So I'm trying to figure out the year of one of my Timberwolf's. I have 4.
2 are definitely 1993's, as I can read the serial number on those.
1 has to be close to a 93, as the back rack and lug width (156) are the same as the 93's.
The last one is killing me. Someone painted over the serial number.
Listed are the differences
Back rack is different. It goes through the plastics and will pivot on the rear attachment. Doesn't have the handles out the side, either.
Doesn't have the loops coming out of front plastics.
Foot rests are different.
Lug pattern is 110.
Everything I've read, says that the Timberwolf was produced from 92-98 and then changed name to Bear Tracker. Most parts are interchangeable through those years. Only change I found, was front brakes were upgraded to disk in 2001.
I have a 1994 big bear and I am starting to have issues starting. I put in a new starter and selnoid as the at stopped starting with the electrical but will still start with the pull cord. Where and what now should I be looking at to check? If I turn key to on and the switch to on then hit the start button, the bike clicks and then nothing. Lights still work but no response to the starter. Stumped now. Any help would be greAt.
