I am new to the forum and to riding. I just bought a 2002 Honda 400ex and I love it. I went out riding for the first time last Sunday and I can't wait to get back out there on Saturday. My question is do you wear your wedding/engagement rings while riding? I just recently got engaged and I never take my ring off. It fits fine under my glove and I am wondering if anyone else has lost theirs or had a bad experience wearing it while riding.
I have a Polaris Express 300 2 stroke. Finally got the engine running smooth with everything tweaked correctly on the carburetor.
I have now moved on to shifting the gears.
I have had this atv for a long time and high gear was always a pain in the ass to get to go into gear, reverse was okay and low was best.
You could always feel low go into gear.
A couple of months ago the spark plug cap went bad while I was trying to figure out the issue with shifting into high. At this time I put fresh gear oil in and never drained the old because it literally looked empty.
Fast forward to a couple of days ago. I finally got everything running but shifting into low you cant really hear grinding gears but it doesn't jerk like it used to when shifting into low and half the time it wouldn't shift fully.
Reverse would move but completely grinding, and high of course is still the pain in the ass.
All 3 gears when shifting into clicks like it got a good shift, not a click on the gears or anything, just a normal click that your in gear so I know I am not loose on the shifter rods.
I checked the gear oil and it was sort of milky, like barely and had bubbles. This means water is in it so i am going to drain the gear oil today.
What I am wondering is could the bad gear oil be the reason the gears aren't going in fully? I highly doubt it because of the symptoms with some gears grinding and others not going into gear at all like high.
Just need to know what the causes could possibly be.
My byou finally got running after I rebuilt the carb. I took it for a trail ride, and finished by riding her pretty hard up a dirt hill. At the peak of the hill it dropped out of gear, and had to be pushed home. It will still start, and idle. When I apply throttle it revs really high, and no matter what gear it is put into, it will rev high and take a few moments after i release the throttle to wine down.
I have pulled the clutches out, and it does appear the centrifugal clutch is worn. I took the dremel to it, and tried to get some relief lines back in there.
Before I reassemble and test, does anyone know if this is even a clutch issue? or possibly transmission/case related.
also can I make a gasket out of cardboard and Indian head just to test after cutting grooves in centrifugal clutch?
After looking at the wire diagram I saw the blue w/black stripe wire is coming from the neutral and reverse lights looking for ground thru the neutral and reverse switches. If it finds ground, the lights come on. The same wire also comes from the neutral relay looking for ground at the same neutral and reverse switches. So it was easy to trick the relay into thinking the engine is in neutral all the time without having the light on all the time. Just cut the blue w/black wire at the relay and ground it. Easy
Sorry the pics aren't better
Now it starts in any gear and indicator lights work as they should.

I have a 2004 Kawasaki KLF300. I’m not sure What is the black/yellow, brown, and red wire wrapped together in the wire hornets of a klf300. I got it used and notice some wires not connected. They are located in the front area
The reason why I am asking because I’m having issues with it firing up. I cleaned the carb put new spark plugs and gas.

Hi guys New to the forum. i ended up here google searching for info on a bayou 300 i have here which has a nice squeek to it. looks very much like its not getting oil fed to the head.
it was one of 2 bayous i got hold of to add to a third one i already had here. it looks like the previous owner had diesel in the sump instead of oil. its had fresh oil /filter in it but develops a squeek once it warms up. ive managed to work out the oil feed to the head is not getting anything so if anyone has a circuit diagram not just the parts manifest that would help out as im still looking for a service manual to download.

Bayou 300 has an occasional missfire. I can pull the plug and it’ll spark every once and a while. I’ve read the service manual but don’t understand the testing of the excited. Here is the wire I have coming from the stator area. Also primary winding resistance is high. Thanks guys!
Also it a 2000 year model
