2002 Bombardier DS 650 No Start HELP PLEASE

Brock Kincaid

Recommended Posts

Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the sh** out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

Had any luck with this ?


Ninety is low for one of those. It could be burnt valves or bad rings. The way to tell which it is, is to put a little oil down the spark plug hole, give it a quick spin to distribute the oil then do a compression test. Oil will seal the bad rings up quite a lot, but have bugger all effect if it's the valves. If it's the rings the compression should come up to perhaps 110 or more, if it's valves probably only 95.. It depends how bad the rings or valves are..  You could also look at the exhaust for sign of oil burning which would indicate the rings.

I suppose you have changed the fuel ? Stale fuel can make for no start by fouling the plugs even though they don't look fouled, they will even spark when they are out, but not once the compression comes on. And, once stale fuel has fouled the plugs, they seldom come right unfortunatly. You could try holding them over a butane flame and try to burn them clean which sometimes works, but often not.

If it's been sitting I'd do that and try to get it going, the compression might come better with a run.. perhaps.. by a little.. but it's not really sounding too hopeful. It's always a good idea though to try and give things a run before you strip them down so you can check the gears and crank for noises etc.. It would be a shame to rebuild the top end and then find the bottom end was shagged.. and since someone has been modifying the inlet, we'd have to suspect it's been thrashed..

      The atv would not stay running and bogged when given fuel then wouldn't start. I changed plug, worked shortly then same. I put new carb on, cleaned tank, new peacock, worked for two short rides,  around yard perfectly. Started it a couple of times in garage for son and the last time it stalled and now won't start. Turns over nicely, just won't start. Any ideas to try?

      I finally found an awsome app for your phone that shows you on a map all the trails near your location. You can read or add reviews, look at picts...etc

      So I am building a behemoth 4x4 live in van to tour the USA. I have several vehicles and a dog. 
      I plan on taking a kayak, and something either on the front or the bac of the van, as secondary transportation. 
      I have a BMW R1200C, but cannot fit a dog on it a., And b., Even with a side car, it would weigh too much and be too awkward to tow.
      I am a proficient, college educated welder and fabricator.
      I love the design and reliability of the Rincon 650 (mine is carbed), and the fact it's 4x4. My Rincon is way too externally beat up to sell for anything remotely fair, but mechanically is very sound and reliable.
      I was thinking of chopping it in half and making a sort of miniature side by side... It's still slightly wider than I would want, but it is street legal (in AZ where I live) and would carry both me and my husky dog reliably, and efficiently even over difficult terrain.
      My other thought would be a pit bike, but then the dog is excluded, no reverse and no all terrain. I could easily fabricate or install a lift gate that would house the quad, however. 
      It's too beat up to make "look nice", I'd rather have a covered all terrain miniature side by side, with a place for my dog in the rear. 
      But idk. The more I look at the quad the more I want to make it a go kart. Like I said, I can't get any money for it and I have too much to sell as it is. I have a covered two seater go kart, but it's 2wd and underpowered. I modified it to carry two dogs, but I'd rather turn my Rincon into a custom buggy. 
      I will be hitting the road hopefully next year and don't want a ton of sh** in storage.
      Constructive, helpful ideas are welcome

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      I was hoping someone has a idea on how to get the float unstuck short of taking the carb off. Its happened before, all I did was tap on the carb and it stopped free flowing, not so lucky this time. Tried everything I could think of no luck. If and when I get it unstuck I'm going to Rec gas, part of the problem it sits 95% of the time. Any help with this would be much apricated..... THANKS
