I have a 1996 Arctic Cat Bearcat 454 and am in a bit of a quandry. I had a bunch of work done on it over the past couple years...new carb, rear brakes, rear axle and bearings. When the rear axle was replaced the shop noticed the left rear hub was stripped. Problem is, the part (1502-178) is no longer available. I've checked junkyards, ebay and other online parts sites across North America and nothing available. Hate to park the bike after all this work just because of a simple hub.
I have two questions...the front hub (part number 1502-177) how much different would it be from the rear hub? This part is readily available. Would the axles be different diameters?
If these are two different parts and we can't make them work, is it possible to take the existing stripped hub and just weld it to the axle? I know it may sound drastic but was wondering if it would not be too crazy?
Thanks for your time
Hello, Im looking for some help instead of spending hours on You Tube. Got roped in to buying the above Kazuma 110 I think. I've worked on all brand of autos.
thought I could tackle this butttt. No start no spark. My stator is producing a faint light by ground. Buy the meter I get 337 ohms on the
black, red wire. Some of my questions, Can I bypass everything to look for spark. Can the plunger type kill switch be removed an both wires put
together to help achieve spark that is behind the seat. My black red to the cdi has no power to it when turning over. Should i put some form of
lubricant in the plug hole or are these motors moving the oil enough and should the plug be in or out or does it matter when looking for spark?
I'm thinking the wire for the coil from the cdi should light up the test light and it does not. (Forget its color at the moment). I hope there's not a limit
of questions cause i will have more and Im not much for typing. Any help would be just jim dandy and greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve
First time working with a Honda-Matic transmission. I didn't even know what I was getting into when I purchased this running beat up farm workhorse quad with black oil. I was thinking I could tear the cases apart and find the bad bearing, causing the random squealing noise when you put it into gear and give it gas. Upon opening the engine covers, I Learned about the Honda Matic automatic transmission and realized there's more than just an electronic shift motor going on in these quads. With my learning curve in major education mode, I'm now wondering two possible culprits to the squealing as I've torn the motor down and am staring at the Honda Matic transmission.
Two possible issues:
1. The bearing that is squealing is unfortunately inside the hondamatic unit hydraulic transmission which is apparently not serviceable? A new unit is $1,900 to replace it! Yikes!
2. The pull starter rope snapped and someone replaced with the wrong pull starter rope that eventually became severely worn out and the centrifugal lever/catch shows signs of wear from rubbing against the housing.
Thinking now the pull starter has nothing to do with a squealing that loud, so my attention is now on the Hondamatic unit,
Has anyone gotten inside their cases to inspect the Honda Matic transmission?
There's a only 1or 2 videos out there that are not helpful for tear down and inspection.
I understand it can't be rebuilt but wondering if anyone has looked deep enough into one to clean it out from running dirty oil? Possible identify bad parts.
I refuse to believe Honda is engineeering these as completely non-serviceable?
Thinking I will try to disassemble the Hondamatic unit m. Hopefully get into it and get all the dirty oil out and replace with fresh? Any special tools needed?
Any and all thoughts/experiences with Hondamatic units would be great conversation for me..
I also have a magnum 4x4 that I am working on it is getting a new piston, In the tear down I pulled off the flywheel
and found that all the magnets are not attached? why does this happen? there all in good shape so is it possible
to reattach them to the flywheel? I can buy a different flywheel, but it looks like around $300 or more and one of them on Ebay
looks like the spacing is off a little so it may have the same issue.
the stator looks good also
Hi Fellow Forum Members, yes I’m a Newbie (so be kind… lol). Within the past 2 years I’ve started riding, acquiring and repairing Honda ATVs. I’m “self teaching” how to repair them from YouTube. I currently have 4 (three Foreman = ‘02-‘04 TRX400FW & TRX450FM 4x4 and one ‘98 Recon TRX250 2X4). My question: Is it normal for Hondas “to tick”? All three Foremans have ticking sound… valves have been adjusted (compression improved but ticking persists). Any suggestions as to other causes or fixes? Video/audio of ‘04 TRX400FW is attached. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
