I actually painted the green plastics. Just clear on the black bezel.

This was the paint job i did in my first bear tracker.  My plastics were way beyond repair with cracks etc.  Its when i first got back into the whole atv thing.  
I was really in need of a hunting atv as well so i went with a  camo pattern.  I also took it upon myself to buy fabric and learn to cover my seats. 
 

I always find myself looking back at my old photos on some of my projects i did. Some were cool, some were so so but i was not good at refinishing the plastics until later.   
As soon as this Suzuki of mine is done i will get back into my side project on a really beat up and old piece of plastic that i picked up from an old bayou. Its just a test piece and im hell bent on bringing back the shine.  Im close to a process that will require no paint or clear coat.

So I installed new relay and new solenoid and now starter is cranking again. Damn it! 

I didn't have time to trouble shoot tonight but maybe tomorrow night.

Gonna have to go back and look thru the posts again.

Relay does not click and I even put the old one back in and nothing. All lights work though.

Yes neutral light is on, but there is no power to the start button this time. Before I was able to jump it out, not now. I'll look deeper tomorrow after work.

Came out great and is definitely looking good. Give me hope to restore my Kodiak, hoping it's not too costly for the rehab of it.

The switch is acting up, got it to start now. May just bypass the brake switch for now.

Any suggestion on how to make this look better? 

Electrical tape? Black silicone?

Honestly as i said before i ordered a $9 piece of fabric on amazon and made my own cover.   Sprayed it with three coats of spray scotch guard and i was good to go.  
All you need is a T-50 staple gun with half inch pointed staples. 
If you don't want to order then use a black sheet.

What is the component on the left, one with the cooling fin? I know the other is the cdi box if I'm not mistaken

Coming together, slowly but surely. My father in law is tig welding the muffler for me. It was cracked along the seam.

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for the help in advance

      I have a yamaha beartracker 250 (yfm250) its not running right. starts fine mostly ...idles but if i give it gas it boggs out and dies before it even can carry its self ... I cleaned the carb ... put everything back and same issue. so i bought a new carb and intake boot.... replaced both things and still the issue persists.  So i have a new carb .... does the Air fuel mixture need to be set on the new carb? If so how do i do that? i ave looked everywhere for details on my bike and carb but cannot find anywhere that reads that the skrew needs to be adjusted out to  7 full turns or somthing to that effect..
       
      The bike ran fine until bad gas was put into it... i did remove and empty the gas tank. removed petcock cleaned and rebuilt that.....
      i also noticed that the new carb ....the bottom skrew for draining the bowl was closed all the way when i got it.. carb wouldnt get gas until i loosened it... now the bowl will drain ... i thought that that float stops this from happeneing....am i wrong?
