I hear you but that’s the function of a regulator I’m sure you know that already but maybe it’s defective? Was it an oem or aftermarket?

No im lost with this. I will keep looking  into it.  Just got back from a long weekend. I will talk to a buddy of mine who specializes in Polaris.

It happens. We all (is flippers) get that occasional machine that does this to us. Best part is when it’s figured out and running good it’s worth the work.  So walk away and do some research and between you and Quadcrazy there will be a logical answer.

Is the flywheel keyway intatact?. If the keyway is broken can also get an erratic voltage which can  take out the regulator/rectifier. Also can cause issues with timing and cam walk.  My manual state a 1/4 preload on the spring and that the cover is also a cam thrust plate

Key is 100% in tacked. But for some reason its either flapping around in there with enough force to bust it off its steam. Or something is throwing it out so hard to but it off the steam. I just have to believe its bouncing around with so much force to break it off

I went and got a new cam yesterday it doesn't even come with the spring preloaded which sucks. Right now I'm trying to find a cap before I can try it again. Just worried to break another one 

Also ? How on earth can the motor go backwards some where on hear someone said sounds like the motor went backwards how can that happen

That can happen if the engine backfires. Usually if timing is off or an unusual amount of fuel that builds up in the cylinder.   The engine kicks back.  

Can you screen shot the page that explains the cam and spring installation and post it here ? I want to read it. I don’t have time to start looking for the manual.

Question I fired it back up with everything back together but figured I would test the alternator first fired it up 17-18v ac let it idle for a while now 22.7vac and 7.6dc what is going on

Also if I rev it up even a little its 50v ac just putting a little bit higher idle to it that's phase to phase btw

That was straight off the stator from wire to wire the ohms dont match manual thru exciter coils either whoever had it b4 me bought stator and voltage regulator new well when I test exciter coils there 513-521 ohms manual says 446 so makes me think something is wrong I honestly think they bought a 96-97 stator colors dont match even close to what there supposed to.

That is off the stator output

Hmmm possibly the wrong stator. But was it running ok before all this happened ? The wires don’t match ? The plugs fit up or spliced wires?

No way. Barking up the wrong tree. What’s your DC voltage at the battery when idle? Ultimately, your spark runs off of DC voltage. HOWEVER...there used to be a problem where the magnets were flying off the flywheel and there are two types of flywheels. The one that had the problem had four magnets and the newer ones (the good ones) had 6 (if I remember right). I could see a problem if they replaced an old style flywheel with a new style flywheel throwing off the pickup. But tell me your DC voltage at the battery at idle.

Another thing to check: do you have a timing light? Use that to see if it’s actually losing spark when you give it gas. And what happened with the shot of carb cleaner test when you gave it gas?

When I first started it up it was perfect 18v ac from stator  12.7v dc output then I left it run a little bit longer at idle then it jumped up to 22.5v ac and 7.6v dc so I kept checking it revved it up a little and jumped up to50v ac I didn't want to hook voltage regulator up to that high of voltage

That still would not make sense for the voltage to jump all over the place like that. Even if some of the magnets are gone OR the newer flywheel with the additional magnets was in place the voltage  should be stable if the engine is spinning at a constant rpm like it was explained? It jumped from 18v to 22v at idle ? How could the voltage change if the rpms did not ? My money would be on a bad stator. I do however find your information on the flywheel a very interesting point.

The job of the regulator is to smooth and stabilize / along with handling you AC/DC conversion. So you had 12.7 DC at the battery with everything hooked up correctly or are you saying 12.7 without the regulator hooked up? The more important measurement on the stator is each of the 3 primaries to ground in which there should be no continuity. Usually when people change the stator it’s because the battery is not charging. I want to know battery voltage with everything hooked up at idle. The flywheel magnets being correct is relevant for the sake of the pickup. I just can’t remember the specifics but seems that it’s ok to have the newer flywheel so long as you have the matching newer stator. New flywheel and old stator/pickup coul is not going to work if I remember properly.

      Several months ago, I finally got around to fixing the bayou. Rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel selector switch, hoses and fuel filter, and she ran great. Only had 2 minor issues since then where, at higher speeds, it acted like it was choking out when I let off the throttle.
      Lately I've noticed if I let it go for more than a week, it almost drains the battery dead trying to start. I initially thought battery, but after inspecting I found very little if not any fuel flow through the line until it starts and runs.
      I'm a little baffled and don't have much time to mess with it as most my free time right now is spent on getting my rv up and ready for hunting season in the next 3 weeks. So any help on quick diagnosis checks would be helpful. Otherwise I'll just keep starting it every 3-4 days to keep things primed until I'm done hunting.
       
      Oh, and another question on a different topic. Does anybody know what the mounting brackets on the front rack are for? I'm referring to the 2 angled metal tabs with threaded holes that are located on the left, near your knee when sitting on the quad?

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      On one of the atv I recently purchased the neutral switch is bad, Any one ever replaced one.
      looking for some pics. I assume I need to remove the drive shaft to pull the cover foward
      to clear the gear shift shaft. Any easy ways to do this. So far have motor moved forward 
      all bolts out except nuts on drive shaft which are loose Thanks Az

      When it comes to adding more power to your ATV, the first thing that usually comes to mind is bolting on a slip-on exhaust. However, that usually means you are also bolting on a lot more noise. HMF do...

      Just picked an '03 Bayou 300 2WD.  It runs ok, needs a little help though. Maybe someone can answer some questions for me.
      1. The choke "off" position is the lever all the way right, correct?
      2. The choke seems mechanically... funky. It has a little valve clamp around the rubber boot where it goes into the carb, seems kind of janky, I don't think there's typically a valve clamp on that part? The engine seems like its running really rich, smoking a bit, so I wonder if I can just completely remove the choke cable to see if that's part of the issue? But I don't fully understand the choke needle setup. Is "choked" when the needle is being pushed in, or pulled out? Like it I chopped the cable just outside the rubber boot by the carb, would I be permanently choking it or permanently unchoking it.
      3. I've read that I can tweak the air/fuel screw and maybe fix the rich mix. Where is that even located, and if it's behind a cap that I have to drill out... where is that?
      Thanks for any tips
