So I have rebuilt two top end's now and going through the process of a third. I'm confused about how high the compression should be on these atv engines, and if low compression, what should be replaced or checked and how? And as far as smoking, how to tell what is the issue there as well. The first rebuild i did was on a kawasaki 300 and it turned out ok... I realize that I adjusted the valve clearance on the exhaust stroke rather than the compression stroke which caused a tick. nut the thing that got me was one both rebuilds, the compession reading didnt really change that much. I've heard that engines should have over 100psi compression, yet have never seen 100psi reached on my tester by any engine.
this thread is open to any top end questions btw.

Something to think about if you have cooling coming out of that hole in the bottom of your engine! One of the damaged components on this engine was pitting on the water pump impeller shaft. This would have caused the coolant to leak out of the engine crankcase and probably was the root cause of its failure.

Im a student of a university were are engineering a utv, we are going to redisign a standard transmission from a quad or a utv and implement it into the design. The overall weight will be around 300-400lbs run by a 300cc b&s.
my main concern is what utv or atv would be best to steal the guts from transmission suited to withhold the weight and geared right. any suggestion would be great except cvt not what we want thanks
Just got my first ATV, a '11 700 Grizz and planning on doing some trail riding soon. First piece of equipment I'm adding is a winch and I'm needing some suggestions for something that would be good for my kind of riding but comes at a decent price. Usually I try to get quality stuff (Warn) but since I'm needing to conserve denero right now I figure this winch is something that (at least for me) doesn't have to be crazy great/expensive. Although I'd still like to get something that's decent quality and can pull well, in my middle age I hardly think I'll be voluntarily launching into any terrain that has the potential to get me too stuck...thus I doubt I'll be using the winch that often.
Anybody have a suggestion for a model that's decent quality for around say $300 bucks? Doesn't have to be built to be used time after time but quality does still count.

Familiar with EXIF data? My primary camera is a 1dMKII. I was doing work for a couple of magazines and a few quad accessory vendors when I bought the MKII, so the MK II worked out great. I had been using a 10D before the 1dMKII... and there's no comparison. The speed, quality, and durability of the 1D line is awe inspiring. In the same weekend that I took the shot I posted, I spent about an hour shooting in heavy rain without any kind of rain cover. I was soaked but the MKII and L lenses kept kicking. I ended up getting shots that many of the other photog's missed because their equipment wasn't able to take the rain. The Canon 1D line is amazing.
I'm not a "pro", but I am a photographer...I d/l'd your pic and checked the EXIF
The 1D/L lens combo is pretty water sealed, so doesn't surprise me .
Saw you shot @ 120mm....you using the 70-200?
I'm still stuck with two 20Ds....LOL! Does what I want for now (read that as I'M BROKE!)
I checked out your site......some really nice work!
Would like to see some more of your MX stuff.....
