2002 Bombardier Quest 500 Fuel Tank Grommets

Recommended Posts

Working on a 2002 Quest 500 and the grommets in the tank are rock hard and leak.  Any tips on replacing without having to pull the tank, hands are too big to get to the bottom gromment which is the worst one.

Yeah I did end up pulling the tank.  Worked out for the best, the fuel line had dissolved inside the tank, and the filters were rolling around the bottom.

I did have to use the heat gun to soften the grommets up enough to push into the tank.  Used a little dow 111 to help slide them in.  Cleaned the carb and re-installed it today.  Replaced a couple of the fuel lines, previous owner probably used ethanol gas in it, they were rock hard as well.

Quick and dirty video of it running decent finally.  Re-jetted the carb this afternoon, got rid of the sea level jetting.  It ran, just now that it's warmed up it would run rich again.  Was fine when it was still cold.

Thanks, it's been a real challenge to get this dialed in.  Turned out the carb was missing the needle jet from the factory.  Took a bit to track that gremlin down.

Yep but i bet you learned something out of that and it sure will help the next member along.  Also very rewarding to see that thing run the right way.   Nice work.

      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

      Hi all, bike does start with the electric start mostly, but the battery was weak and wouldnt start it the other day so went to use the pull start, to say its hard is an understatement first of all you gotta do a little jiggling about til it catches then pulling it takes some effort now i know im not the strongest fella in the world but this is so much harder than it should be. 
      It does start of the pull just to get the engine to initailly turn is so hard any ideas why its happening or how to fix this,
      Thanks

      Hello, the ATV doesn't stop anymore so I guess it is time to replace the brakes. Looking for part number and instructions. I think it may have shoes front + back and the front would be hydraulic.

      I have a 2001 650 quest that ran great. Shut it off, wont start. Got tinkering at a buddies, it ended up in a snowbank. Lost my train of thought since then.  I have a black, red, green  top with two plug in wires yellow and yellow and red I believe.. I have a new battery. Just dunno what to do. I tried hooking the wire coming up to the solenoid on the far side, then directly across I put the positive cable and it instantly started turning over without the button being pressed until I took the cable off.  The little black resistor box has also been eliminated.   Any help would be greatly appreciated..
