I just bought this thing and got the carb all cleaned today and it was running like a champ. There was a spare hot wire hanging down that was not hooked up to anything. I found it when I took all the covers off and did the carb work. Unfortunately I forgot it as well when I fired her up after cleaning and replacing the carb. While I was running her, the wire was lying across the exhaust pipe. The exhaust got hot, melted the insulation and next thing I know I see sparks flying everywhere Bike immediately shut down and all lights went off. I have nothing on the console now when I turn the key over. I fear I have fried my ECU. I found one fuse back by the box, a 30 amp, but it was good. Are there any other fuses on these things? Is there a way to test the ECU? Could it be the rectifier or voltage regulator?

Are these motors the same?
hey so never ran into this before but i recently got a 04 honda rubicon 500. bought it from my doctor not running and the front brakes were locked up. cleaned the carb and it fired right up and runs great. these model atvs have drum brakes front and rear. not a fan. lost all brakes on this one when i hit some water and it got inside the rear drum case. so i ordered new shoes for the rear end no biggie. front is more complicated. has hydraulic drum brakes not sure who thought that was a good idea but the pistons in the drums rusted and locked up from it sitting with moisture in the drums.
so i had a choice to make- 1. buy new brake pistons ($120 for a set of 4) or 2. order super atv's disc brake conversion kit for $250. i HATE drum brakes so i went with the conversion kit. it said it was easy to install with no specialty tools. so i order it and turns out i have to press the studs out of my hubs to get the disc on.
anyone ever done this and if so how?

When i get to about 10 mph i get a very (tinny ) noise from the right side of the engine / clutch area.
originally I thought maybe something got caught between axle and skid plate ie : rock and was just rubbing producing that sound.
I took off the skid plate and drove it and still had same sound.
Checked the lug nots and they were a bit loose , tightened them and still same noise.
Took off the what looks like an inspection plate on top of clutch cover and looked inside this apart and it is dry of any fluid.
Not sure if there should be any fluid in there or not had clutch replaced 2 yrs ago with nominal riding since.
I do not have the time or knowledge to take this apart and try and diagnose. The only repair areas around here are absolutely terrible.
The shop I normally do the work are 2.5- 3 mos. behind. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble.
It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
Are they defective ?
They have brand new high quality tires for my old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
Any recommendations ?

It’s kind of ATV related question as I need new trailer tires to tow my 4 wheeler.
Does anybody have any experience with loadstar 12” trailer tires ?
There is not to many choices for trailer tires here in Ontario and I was wandering if somebody can recommend me something.
