      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

      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.

      Purchased a Ranger 150 for the kid and searching info online came across this site. Looking to update the fleet next year with a Turbo SXS.
      This is an upgrade from the Polaris Outlaw 50.

      Was told there was some good information on this forum, so I'm here engaging in some good ole conversation haha. Bought a buggy aka shitcart for 100 dollars. Thing was a woods toy for the past owner. Used and abused until she went boom and was left in a field to die. All things considered that may be an exageration, but the top end of the warrior 350 that was on board was absolutely mangled. Piston and head assembly were totaled. Have a new jug, piston, and head assembly, but struggling to get the crankcase back together without the transmission binding. Can share pics that are on my phone if anyone is interested in seeing this shitty story unfold.

      Hey guys and girls - I’m at a loss and need your help!

      My jianshe 400 ML has been starting great on pull start but nothing on electric. Narrowed this down to starter clutch so have changed this and now engages fine.

      problem is since changing she struggles to turn over. Had it hooked up to a car battery just to see if it will flick over but to no avail.

      Has Spark
      Has fuel to carb

      absolutely fine turning over with spark plug removed.

      Any clues appreciated!!
