10 posts in this topic

Just about 2-3 days ago my Can-am Rally wont start. I didn't run it though any water or mud. The power goes on but once i press the start button all i hear is a clank:aargh:. I checked the battery and it is fine. If anyone has any idea about wat to check please tell me.

You could always get a voltage meter and start at the battery and work your way through the electrical system and see where it stops. Time consuming but it will pin point your problem.

I don't think it will be the spark plug. The motor is not turning at all correct? It would have to be something in the starter or a relay somewhere.

Sounds to me like you may have a bad starter or a connection problem at the starter. You can try tapping the starter a few times with a small hammer to see if get a reaction. Similar to a car starter, you may have worn brushes or a low spot the starter has stoped on.

Also check the fuses. My Ozark done the same thing. There is a solinoid that clicks like a bad starter if I blow a fuse.

I'm with Buck Billy sounds like a bad connection or bad starter.

      Hello I am new hear. I just purchased a 1998 Big Bear. It was sitting for 3yrs in storage. The guy I bought it from got the carb cleaned and it runs good. I am having problems with the neutral light. When I shift into neutral the light does not come on. If I mess with the gear shifter, I can get it to come on so I can start it. I can still pull the hand brake and start it that way. I cant find the neutral safity switch on this machine. Any suggestions would be great.

      I just picked up a really clean 1995 Moto 4 350. It runs great, but it will only go into one forward gear, neutral and reverse. I can run the shifter up and down and it will finally find a gear, or neutral. What should I do to trouble shoot this?
      Does anyone have a service/repair manual for this model?
      Thanks!

      Hello. New here. Just picked up a used 350 motor out of a 1991 big bear. Going to put into my 1986 350 moto 4. From what I've read the engines are the same. The only difference so far I've notice is I have to change out transfer case. The moto 4 isn't 4x4. Has anyone done the same swap and any advice before I tackle it.

      i was given a 2003 Polaris trailblazer 250! I have tried 2 different carbs that I purchased off of eBay and they were garbage. Brilliantly Polaris discontinued the carb for the trailblazer, is their anything out there that is compatible??!
