So i have a friend at work who was recently diagnosed with a small but very manageable heart problem.  He is in good shape but doc says he shouldn't be shoveling snow or anything crazy for a while unt

Horrible, simply HORRIBLE!   Are you kidding?  They look brand new, man!  Is it paint?  Wax?  Since I have no experience painting atv plastics, my only question would be how durable is it - if painted

You're a good man Frank. Pretty work, you'll make your friend very happy.

A few pics in the daylight and obviously the night time photos did it no justice!  Im super impressed with this one.  The way she shines!  This front rack was bent pretty bad. I heated it up and beat it back to good, cane out pretty straight.  I shot the racks with a spray gun for the first time and love it.

Thank you @Ajmboy 

Plastics were from a can.  I will post a pic of the can later. Product is Minwax, i asked my local place that specializes in paint and she took about a week and got back to me with it. I was a little shocked at first because Minwax makes wood finishes. So i asked how was this possible and her answer was the rep said use this because it's flexible due to the nature of wood expanding and contracting round year with heat and humidity so a flexible chemical is added.  Makes sense i guess. She went on to say that it also sticks to any surface.  So i bent the crap out of it and put gas on it 24 hours later to try and remove it but it held up very well.   The water sanding was key as it took the layers of oxidation/fading off. 
I bought a Wagner spray gun for $65 on Amazon and sprayed the racks which i I'm happy with because #1 the amount of paint on the racks #2 the hard shell feeling of them. Its almost like its factory sprayed.

Auto body paint just a gloss black mixed with a little lacquer thinner so its sprayable. 
I forgot to mention the front bumper/guard same process and a metallic grey that was laying around. That gray was from a Mazda 3 car he repaired. 
I go to a body shop up the block from my house and grab whatever colors he has left over from a car. He gives them to me for free!  Maybe half a quart or a full quart of a color mistake. He throws them out anyway so i stop in once in a while with a dozen doughnuts and a box of joe the boys. He lets me look through the colors and take what i want.

      out of the blue my vinson wouldn't shift into park and when I am in H or L and go past a slow pace (maybe in 2nd gear) it grinds and Low grinds even louder. It sounds as though it may be in the rear diff. I have not tore into the rear end or anything yet. I was looking for advice before tearing it apart. Reverse has no grinding at all and H gear doesn't grind until you get moving past a walking pace. L grinds as soon as it moves. It shifts into gear smoothly and 4wd works just fine. There was no issues leading up to this. Any advice is appreciated thanks.

      When running for a while the rancher will shut off without the fan turning on. We then took it to dealer where it was started and warmed up. The fan came on at the dealer so they then replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump. We got it back and ran good for a few days with the fan coming on when needed. Now its back to shutting off before the fan ever comes on. It seems like the time the fan should come on the bike shuts off. It will start after letting it sit for a few minutes. Any ideas of the problem?

      I have read many forum topics on this matter but have never found a similar problem. So i bought a cheap ass quad thats got all sorts of parts on it. It's a 1997(if you look the date on frame) Kawasaki KLF(Bayou) 300 EUROPEAN Model (atleast I think, since I'm from Europe), the engine is 1988 if I'm not mistaken and the CDI is 1995.-2006. ( 21119-1447, 6pin ). My problem is that I don't have spark. I would diagnose the issue but connectors from CDI to wiring harness have almost all different colors and I'm not sure if they are connected correctly (pictures below). Pickup coil is putting out around 400 ohms and is pulsing. CDI is being fed 12v by one y/r wire that is coming to connector and with 12v to one gray wire which is coming from ignition switch ( quad actually doesn't have ignition switch so I'm not sure if gray should be supplying power or not). Stator looks good cause when crancking all three yellow wires put out around 5v AC. Neutral light is also on which means the switch should be ok, if it even matters. I know it's not the ignition coil since I get no power nor any kind of pulsing to G/W wire that is coming to it ( and I even put another one on there just to check an it ended with the same result). I'm nowhere near proffesional around this type of stuff so any help would be amazing.

      SO I'm riding along, on a paved road, going like 25-30mph and outta nowehere, she shuts down and has good resistance upon "coasting" still in gear (Hi). I come to a a stop and try the starter: Absolutely nothing. Shes locked up tighter than a drum. The ODD part is, after looking it over visually, I see the top of the motor transmission/cfrank area has oil. It must have come from the seam between the case halves.
      Does this scenario exist, or am I the one in a zillion?
