This 700 was run out of oil. Seized the con rod to the crank....yada yada. So, I rebuilt the engine and now it will start and run for about 5 seconds and die. I replaced the fuel pump with a cheapie from ebay and it didn't change. I replaced the O-rings on the injector and still didn't change. So, the tech at the Yamaha shop said that the most likely problem is the cheapo fuel pump. I got another more expensive one and it still didn't change things. I asked him where the power to the injector comes from and he said the CDI box. But since the thing does run a little, he  ruled that out. Any thoughts?????

CDI either runs or doesn't, normally.  Any intermittent issue with CDI is frequently once they get hot or wet.  I'm still betting it's fuel pump.  You said "more expensive one" but that doesn't always mean as good as OEM. 

this is all assuming though that it's a fuel related issue.  Could be heat shutting down a coil, compression leak on a sticky valve or head gasket...quite a bit to narrow down.  What made you go to fuel pump as the possible culprit?  Just curious.

Its kind of a long story...but..from the beginning. I never heard this bike run. When I got it the owner said he thinks it needs  a new starter. LOL. It did.....but, it needed a whole lot more. So, after doing the overhaul it would start die, start die, repeat. I had a small water leak out of the head, but I tightened down a little on it and it stopped. But, I did put a new head gasket on and no leaks so far. 

 I tested the fuel pressure. According to the manual it's supposed to be tested while the engine is running. I didn't have the right fitting to do that. But, I could test it without starting it and I did that. The pressure went up to about 45 psi (the book calls for 46) and then it would drop off. So, I figured a cheap fuel pump would tell the story. So after the fuel pump change, same thing. I adjusted the valves, just because I hadn't done it. Then the thing wouldn't crank over. Whenever it would hit the compressions stroke, it would almost stop. So I figured I did something wrong. I checked the cam timing and I was 1 tooth off and that made the changes that I made to the valves way off. I got that straightened out. Now it would crank over, but not start unless I gave it shot of ether. So, now it's getting no fuel at all. I changed to more expensive pump, and it did the same. Now, yesterday, my wife asked about these wires and this plunger looking thing hanging down. I said I didn't know what they were, so I grabbed the plunger thing and hit the starter and it fired up! And then died. It fired up a couple times, a couple of times it wouldn't. The plunger thing didn't have any effect on it. Or the other 2  wires. So, that got me thinking that there's a short or a loose wire somewhere. 

I'm not sure what these 2  things are. They weren't hooked up when it came here.

Basketcases are always so much fun. There used to be a Raptor service manual in the downloads section so I'd start there and run down any loose wires and odd items hanging around. 

Sounds like you do indeed have a fuel related issue but it could be harness or ground as much as pump. I think you're real close, just one more hurdle to hear it run.

I have a service manual. I just gotta get after it and get it figgered out. The owner is starting to get antsy. It's been here about 2 months already. But, I had to send the cylinder out for re-plating, etc. Shipping these days is a crap-shoot. Mightbe 3 days..might be 3 weeks... Thanks for the input and encouragement! :D

      Hi all, new member here. 
      Picked up a really cheap non-runner last night from a neighbor. He had gotten it from someone else who had rebuilt it a few years ago and it has decorated his garage since.
      It is an early-90's (1992 or 93?) Suzuki LT250, but the weird part is the engine is a neon green color. I am now wondering if someone swapped the original motor out of this quad. Does anyone have experience with these that could give me a pointer as to what this could have come out of? I have heard that some Arctic Cat models had the same Suzuki motor - could that be where this came from? It is a 2WD, and has the typical chain drive/RWD system with both front and rear (rear drum) brakes. Very little rust and mostly complete, for the price I paid it isn't bad, but I am not sure how to pinpoint the engine type, and I would like to have that figured out.
      Just want to make sure what I am dealing with before ordering parts. I will need a carburetor by the looks of things, and air/oil/fuel filters, plugs, etc. 
      Thanks in advance for any help, appreciate your experience with these quads.

      It seems like it looses fuel prime after sitting A few days.  If you ride it every day it will fire right up. Parked for a few and you have to use either to start it.

      What all is included in the normal maintenance service of the Polaris ranger 1000 Xp ? My neighbor wants to service his machine and says he has a “kit” for it , oil change. Are there any hidden grease fittings? Pitfalls?

      Hey there all,
      First off thanks for the board. My Bayou 220 has survived 3 teenagers and is on its 4th now. Up until  recently it has been a virtual tank....until I decided to fix it;)
      Noticed some smoking from the engine block (not exhaust) so figured it was time for a quick top end rebuild. Now that I have it all back together, it fails to start. I've pulled the starter rope until my arm is tired. 
      So I will be as detailed as possible and hopefully get some help.
      Completed:
      -New Head gasket
      -New Valve seals
      -New piston (standard)
      -New rings (standard)
      -All new seals
      -Cleaned up head and valves (didn't do any resurfacing, as it all cleaned up pretty easy)
      -All torqued to spec
      -Piston ring gaps all checked out
      -Valve clearances (Intake: .18mm, Exhaust .20mm). Not too tight, not too loose.
      Pros:
      -Engine IS making decent compression
      -DO have spark
      -Will fire for a split second if I drop some gas in the spark plug hole and pull start. Will NOT from carb and or intake valve. 

      Timing:
      So I followed the guide of: TDC
      -Flywheel aligns on the “T” mark on the engine site hole
      -Cam gear mark aligned with the cover mark
      Seeing as this is my first time doing a top end rebuild on an ATV. Here are my questions and concerns:
      -I didn't realize (dummy me) that there are 2 TDC's. 1- Compression, 1-Exhaust. 
      How do I know if I'm on the right one?
      -Does the cam need to be aligned a certain way when put back in? I just aligned the cam gear dimple with the cam and put it in. No alignment. 
      Thanks ahead of time. I feel like I'm 90% there, but I'm missing an important step for completion.
