2000 Lakota KEF300 Oil level & Battery


Recommended Posts

Hello Guys!

Dumb question. How much oil registers on the oil level gauge while running? The oil level reads correct when off, but while running I can only see just a little bit in the oil level gauge. Makes wonder if the oil isn't circulating well enough.

Also, whats your preference in battery brands for ATV's (standard or AGM). We don't ride it all that often.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Welcome to Quadcrazy @Maxx.  Oil levels in the gauge/sight glass wont be accurate when running. Oil is consistently flowing through the engine so its never all in the same place for an accurate oil reading.  If your not getting an accurate reading then its safe to say its ok.    Engine off, wait 15 minutes and take an oil reading. You will be at 97%  accuracy of your dipstick or sight glass.  The other 3% is still in the head or lining the engine walls.  As far as battery ratings; go on Amazon, there are tons so have at it. I personally like the pirate battery

Thanks for the replies Frank and AJ! I'm new to this kind of stuff, and there's so many brands to choose from with regard to batteries and parts. I'd rather ask here than possibly take to heart a review from someone that just doesn't under stand how to keep a battery charged. But again thank you for helping me out.

      I have had a 2002 Suzuki King Quad 500 for almost a year. This is a question I’ve posted before, but likely missed the answer due to being new to the site. Here’s the issue. When in 4 wheel drive, especially in low range, especially when pulling a load downhill, I hear a lot of clanking in the front end. As if the front drive shaft was binding then unbinding. A friend who had a 1987 Dodge 4x4, told me all the noise his front end made when in 4 wheel drive was entirely normal. So, is this something I should worry about? I have all the bodywork and tank off right now doing a valve adjustment and carb rebuild. If I gotta do something, I’d like to do it now. Lastly, I’d love to find a carb tuning guide for this era of Mikuni. Haven’t tracked one down yet. Any thoughts of where to find one? Great forum. Have really enjoyed it so far.

      Hey everyone, here is an update. I have my new atv battery in and it's fully charged and installed. I have my new hi/lo range knob in that was missing. The ignition is the original one so my new OEM switch will be in Thursday or Friday. I have an original LT-F230 service manual. It gives all the colors of all the wires but does not say which are hot and which are ground. Here are pics of the front cover and the wiring page. Can anyone lead me in the right direction? I want to see if I have fire to the ignition switch.
      I do have a multi meter

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      Both the red wire and the blue have power with out the start button being pushed.  Which one should have power?  When I hooked up a positive and a negative to the starter relay it started.
