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

That’s strange. I wouldn’t think it’s the cdi maybe a rectifier/regulator??

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.

New coil in frank  not really better I put volt meter to stator jointers and all seem to be charging any suggestions what to do next

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.

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

On well it’s one of mine so let’s get the manual downloaded and pick it apart. Give me a little bit

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.

That sucks. Can’t trust the cheap ones. Same thing with the carburetors. Not good.

The electronic 4 wheel drive shifter stopped working couple weeks before so bit concerned about plugging expensive cdi back in at first

That could be a solenoid, a dirty plug or connection, switch contacts etc.  Nothing burnt up though right ? Fuses were all good prior to the rectifier swap out ? Nothing happened to the bike? Got banged? Any service work done that could have resulted in a pinched wire ? Check along the neck of the bike on the front end where everything comes up to the controls. I would think you should also unplug, clean and add dialectic grease to the connections as well because this honestly could be something along those lines.

      So I bought an 88 qaudracer real nice bike fired up 2-3 kick everytime. When I bought it the brake calipers were not on the bike the guy gave them to me In a box with parts to rebuild. So I HAVnt ever really rode the bike except a quick run testing gears when I bought and I started it and drove in yard not getting out of 3rd due to no brakes. I put it in garage turned it off. The following weekend I put brakes on and go to kick it and it’s seized. I did put it in high gear and rocked it back and forth and got it to kick a couple times. But has seized back up. Any ideas??? Could it be a kicker malfunction??

      Hi guys.  First post, hope you can help.  As above 1991 Honda fourtrax.  Starting, running fine until a few weeks ago. Used primarily to put my ski boat in the garage (put 2" ball on front).  Any way, had just backed boat into garage, turned off to crank trailer wheel down, when I went to restart got nothing.  
      No neutral light, no headlights, no reverse light, would not turn over when start button pushed.  It would crank and run when I jumped the contacts on the start relay.  While running the neutral light will come on, although it is dim and flickers.  Reverse light on when running and in reverse.
      What I have done to this point:
      1.  Used jumper cable to ground battery (-) terminal to engine block thinking ground wire from battery to engine may be bad.  No neutral light, no start.
      2. Applied 12 volts to start relay.  Got a loud click like it was making contact.  I didn't have the battery/starter cables connected to the relay, but I am assuming it would have cranked at that time.  
      3. Disconnected neutral switch wire.  Grounded neutral switch wire with jumper wire. No neutral light, no electric start. 
      At this point I am thinking ignition switch vs broken wire in the harness going to the neutral switch (due to dimness and flickering when running).
      Any and all suggestions to help track down this issue are appreciated.
      Thanks

      Hey all,
      It's been a while since I posted.  Fan trouble and the replacement I sourced on amazon is still working great on my 2005 Suzuki KQ700.
      Unfortunately this year I lost my outdoor best friend.  He's that go to guy for everything … the day run, may walleye opener, last minute hey my boat's at work get your a$$ over here with your rod and let's go kinda buddy.   I bought the quad last year in March and with him gave it the once over and prepped it for fall hunting season, but cancer took him before we could enjoy this new aspect of outdoor life.  We planned an October trip into the bush with our quads guns and tent trailer.   It never happened.   A tribute to our fallen and lost.... But in their memory take the opportunity to grasp every minute of the outdoors you can, life is short... you can sleep at the end...
      I've curious what everyone has been doing to prep for the spring season.  I mounted my battery and the quad started up straight and easy, just powered it up once or twice to juice the injectors and it fired up after a couple of seconds.  I let it run, confirmed fan started, checked charge voltage.  all good. I did all my oils in the fall to make sure no water was present anywhere so skipped that this spring.
      So what have I done over the winter to prep for quadding?  I've been researching.  This year I am going to cross over quading with brook trout fishing.  So I have been pouring over my old maps from my youth, google maps... looking for those faint markings of trails I can't travel in my F150 (well not yet, paint still looks pretty good ).
