I am trying to figure out what the resistors do in this circuit. From what I have read in the manual the head light/tail light circuit is A/C. I am adding LED headlights/taillight so I want to convert it to D/C. My assumption is the resistors in the circuit bleed off some power since the incandescent bulbs are low wattage. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I am not putting a Baja LED light kit or light bar, just LED bulbs in the stock location and a small cube flood mounted on the handle bars. I already have the LED bulbs installed in the stock locations but they flicker badly.

Below is a quote from a response to similar question from yesterday:
"Easiest thing to check is trash in the main jet. if it idles fine, then the idle circuit and low speed jet is clear. if it bogs off idle that's when it's transitioning to the main jet."
I will go ahead and open up the carb and check the main jet, but please respond to this post as if the main jet is squeaky clean.
Below is my post:
Only starts and runs on Full chock.
Does not matter what position I have my "mixture" screw. Tried it at zero, 1 turn, 2 turn, up to five turns. Spent a few hours confirming that the position of the mixture screw does not resolve issue.
Runs great at idle and if I slowly engage throttle, it will rev up as expected. But, quick rev up or when I am trying to drive it, it spits and sputters and looses power.
I also use a propane bottle and did not find any obvious leaks, and the vacuum port is hooked to fuel peacock and I also made sure to simply block the port with my finger to see if that would resolve the issue.
New Carb (after market), New Coil, Fresh Gas. No leaks at manifold boot, hot battery. Good gas flow. Runs too good to be a valve issue, or cylinder, great compression.
I can move the choke out a tiny bit, and it will still run, but will still bog down when I try to power it up.
I also have a 250 trail boss Polaris that I require to run at full choke, but it has power at all throttle potions.
I suspect it is running rich as the choke is on, but will not run with it off.
Any details would be appreciated.
I have a 2001 650 quest that ran great. Shut it off, wont start. Got tinkering at a buddies, it ended up in a snowbank. Lost my train of thought since then. I have a black, red, green top with two plug in wires yellow and yellow and red I believe.. I have a new battery. Just dunno what to do. I tried hooking the wire coming up to the solenoid on the far side, then directly across I put the positive cable and it instantly started turning over without the button being pressed until I took the cable off. The little black resistor box has also been eliminated. Any help would be greatly appreciated..

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.

New to ATV's so have some general questions on best proctices and repairs.
This weekend a buddy came over with his 4 wheeler. He is much more experieinced and in my haste to try to keep up, I seem to have dented a front rim a bit.
That tire is noticably lost some air but it does not appear to be bad enough to go full flat.
First, I think I can knock the dent back with a ball peen or a BFH and a cold chisel. Is there any other tips and fixing this sort of dent in the rim?
Last question is on air pressure. I was very surprised at how low the pressure is recommended. The tires on the bike are Bear Claws. Rather aggressive tread. Is there any rule on pressure vs terrain? Does one always stay with the recommended or do you go over a bit in rockier stuff?
I am not sure if the dent came from a rock or a tree stump.
btw...pretty much thrashed the bike Saturday! It was a blast and it performed like a champ! Got stuck only once in some really deep muck on my property. Definately need to add a winch to it sooner than later!
I bought a used Chinese 110cc atv. The seller had no knowledge of anything on it.
It won't start but that's only one of my problems.
First I'd like to know what I have. Its a 2006 and manufactured by Zhejiang Chisheng Industry and Trading Co. and Imported by Seaseng Inc. It has a logo sticker on the front that say "MDI". It has a large number on the side that says "110ST." Even with this info I can't find anything telling me what this is. Is it a MDI? Is it a Seasheng? What the heck do I call this thing?
Second, after I know what to call this thing, where can I get a user and service manual?
Third, It did not have a battery so I took a shot in the dark and bought the only 12Vdc battery that would fit in the tiny battery compartment. Obviously I had no idea if it had the cranking amps needed. Where can I find out what type of 12Vdc battery to get for this thing?
Fourth, I installed the battery and the lights worked but the electric start would do nothing, even click a relay or anything. So I ran a wire directly from the "+" terminal of the battery to the starter post and it turned over but wouldnt start. I made sure the lanyard button was not the problem.
Fifth, The remote control just blinks when I press every button. Does the remote have anything to do with anything?
Thanks for any help !
