Linhai 300 idle speed

Recommended Posts

Hi my linhai 300 is hard to start and  engages gears at idle which is 1200 rpm was looking at cdi says on it 7500 rpm does this mean quad should idle at 7500 rpm as this would explain transmission problemb as idle is too high thanks gary

My guess is that bike should idle at about 800 to 1000 rpm warm and 1200 at maybe a choke position. If it’s reving high after it warms up you can make an adjustment on the carburetor or intake if it’s fuel injected. 

7500 would be the maximum  revolution limit where the cdi would go into safety mode and shut down.

thanks for reply have adjusted carburettor wont idle slower without cutting out spark not the best so am thinking bad cdi or coil

Turns out it should idle around 1200 rpm was a broken clutch shoe causing gears to enguage at idle,just have the problemb of hard to start with weak spark so was going to start replacing coil  etc any input welcome

I would change the secondary coil and spark plug wire.  You can test the coil first but it’s cheap enough to replace. Don’t forget the wire also.

That is the secondary that you ordered.   Hopefully that’s the problem. I think it is but I’ve been wrong before.  

  I’m surprised that 1200 rpm is the norm. I would have figured 1000 max.

That with a fresh plug also ? 

Only other thing I can think of would be the regulator. The stator is putting out proper voltage ? Battery is putting out proper voltage ?

Ok well that’s not good. So when you wire it up everything plugs right up and your putting wires right back were they were ? Any differences in the old to new ? 

And have you reinstalled the old one to see if it does the same thing?

Have you tried to put the old one back to see if it does the same thing ? 

My feeling is whatever is going on will be a dead short so take a deep breathe and let’s start looking  over things to see if there is a wire shorted out someplace or a faulty ignition connection etc.  What’s the set up ? How May wires are plug in and how many are bolt up.  There has to be a dead short someplace here.

It was starting and running with old one just unplugged ,I can't get any spark at all now plugged old one back in and doesn't blow fuse but still no spark the new ones were cheap Chinese ones but both did same thing I will try check wiring and then perhaps try cdi thanks for input frank

Just before this issue the electronic 2x4 4x4 stopped working so guess electrical issue ...not my strong point 🙃

Do you have the acceptable range shown in the manual for ohms on the pick up coil ? 

My guess is possibly the cdi shit the bed when you used the cheap rectifier. Something caused a dead short. 

OEM always when it comes to the cdi and the rectifier.   The stator you can get away with but I’ve never had any luck with the cheap parts like a cdi and or regulator/rectifier.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      I have a new 2020 cforce 600 touring and read how smooth the shifting was on it. Mine however, sticks in gear quite often and only after moving the bike around does it finally shift. I use the brakes before shifting as it says but that doesn't seem to affect it either way. Anyone have this issue? Is there an adjustment on the linkage perhaps? Any suggestions are appreciated. The machine is new with about 10 miles on it.
