Snorkel done

Recommended Posts

yeah i need to run my breather lines for the diffs and the crank case still. Die electric? Add the grease?

ive got this anti corrosion spray im going to use. Its pretty much just like WD-40, but it does no go away/fade off.

Im not going to rejet for awhile.

It runs great, i havent noticed any problems.

Still pulls the front wheels off the ground.

I'll look into jetting it when i get a pipe, air filter and a power commander ready to be installed.

Im going to paint the snorkel black.

that will probably get done when i get my breather lines ran

Its getting closer to becoming 100% trail ready.

Im pretty sure i toasted the heck out of my winch.

I'll dig into that mess sometime this week.

But my highest priority right now is to finish up my snorkel

next will be to die electric every electrical plug/ connection.

my winch, it re spools. but it has no torque at all.

As soon as the line gets tight. it just spins and spins.

I havent checked the "Spool- Free Spool" switch on the end.

Hopefully its not locked all the way.

but im really not sure.

i tried using it earlier this after noon when i was stuck deep in

a bottomless mud hole... Pretty sure i cooked er' though.

time for a 4k or 4500

bike is in my garage, i also have a car in there im working on.

I attached my winch line to the left front wheel of it, only thing i had

around that was solid and stayed put.

Started reelin in the winch line. Not a single problem.

It drug my bike across the garage floor with all 4 tires locked up.

Im not sure. But its one of those cheapie 2500lb winches.

I guess Warn use to own/make them.

im not sure what its deal is.

So wat problems u having is the winch just not having torque or its not lock so the spool can wind up the cable?

When i was stuck up to the top of my tires in the muckiest mud ever.

I went to winch out and the winch began to pull me and then stopped.

it was working, but it was reeling in any line.

Sounded like something in the winch was slipping or grinding.

Maybe my cable is slipping around the drum.

Im not sure how the cable is attached to the drum.

But lastnight i i pulled the bike across the garage floor by the winch and it acted fine.

Progress tonight-

got all my breather lines ran.

I was told there was 2 vent son the front diff.

i could only find 1. so im waiting to hear back from this guy i chat with.

I'll take some new pics.

i've got a 3" lift coming

a 2" power tip coming

Im wanting to build a stereo for it

I need to put a set of hand guards on it

I could use a new set of grips

a set of bar ends also.

Bigger winch

HMF pipe and K&N filter

Jet kit

need an ammo box or something similar

in size for my rear rack to keep my toe strap in.

thats about it..

im not 100% sure if im going to install the lift kit.

I may end up selling it and end up buying a 1-2" lift kit.

Im just a trail rider. Im not into those 100ft long mud pits or anything.

im aware of the issues i may encounter.

the extra wear and tear on the cv axles, along with the ball joints.

yeah yeah, i know.

Im not 100% sure that im going ot keep the 3" lift.

i may buy a 1-2" lift.

It is installed though.

Along with the 2" exhaust tip.

The winch, 4500lbs is alot.

but my 2500lb winch let me down this past weekend.

and thats was not cool at all.

I really need to make a new thread.

but here are some new pics

Left front measurement with no lift-


right front with lift-



Some nasty angles here.


Check this out!


So you see my CV axle angles.

Im thinking about pulling the 3" from the year and installing the 1-2" brackets in the rear.

No, i dont know of any 1" lifts.

the lift i went with is the one floating around on ebay.

a number of rincon guys suggested it.

So i took there advice, with not much to lose.

Well the same guy that sells the 3" kit, also sell's a

1-2" kit. thats not 1 and 2 inch, that 1 to 2 inch.

      Thank for the add on quad crazy. I am new here and need some help with my atv. It’s a older Yamaha Timberwolf 250 that I purchased second hand from an person. I got it home ans started to look into it. He stated it needed a cdi box so I ordered one for it and a battery as well also a key switch cause it did not come with one. I put all the parts on it and when I hit the start button it just clicks and noting else. Thank you any help is appreciated.

      I seem to have no resistance at all on the rear brake pedal and no rear brakes. They were pretty good before I removed the right side crank cover. In order to get to the lower bolts of the cover, I took a piece of baling wire and wired the pedal in the down position. I assume, that caused at least, part of the brake problem. I can't see where fluid came out but, I did have to add more fluid. Added the fluid but still no resistance to pedal. Should I try to bleed the rear brakes? Thanks

      Morning all, hope everyone is off to a good start with their day.
      about 2 months ago I bought a 95 bayou 300 for a hundred bucks. It was obvious the thing was gonna need some work and I'm up for the challenge. Just looking for some advice on how to get this thing going. The wheeler has an array of problems and I've done a good bit of reading around and learning about the machine lately, but I'm stuck at an impasse and not sure exactly what I need to do to proceed.
      So to start with the stuff that was obvious to me; The wheeler has definitely been flipped, the handlebars and steering column are bent, both front and rear racks were bent and have been cut in places to allow the previous owner to bend them back into a rough idea of what they once were. Along with this the little box on the handlebars with the key and lights was completely missing, The ignition wires were hanging out the side and twisted together and the light wires were just freely hanging down below and were also cut, as they have no bullet connectors on them anymore. to deal with the loss of the reverse lockout they strung a cable through a hole in the plastic and attached a random handle to it.
      As a preliminary I went ahead and purchased a info box complete with key and reverse lockout and a voltage regulator (as I had read they commonly go bad). I have a small question about the ignition wiring, but I will save this for later as this brings us to the actual problem. No matter how good I do at replacing parts such as this I will never know if any of it has worked because I cant get the transmission to shift at all, but most importantly I cant get it to shift into neutral. I did some research on the problem which consistently lead me to something having to do with the spur gear behind the secondary clutch. I pulled the clutch cover and inspected, Everything was in place with no loose bolts or anything. I went as far as to remove the spur gear and the levers and springs. I could not find any visual degradation that would lead me to believe this part is the issue. With time running thin in the day I went ahead and put everything back in according to the manual. for a brief moment I was very excited to find that the shift lever was actually giving me some sort of tactile feedback and felt as if it was shifting, but this was short lived and it all seemed to jam up and stop doing anything after a few seconds.
      When I had the clutch cover off I had my son actuate the shift lever both up and down while I was laying on the ground looking at the spur gear. It seems that every once in a while it was able to grab the spur gear and spin it, but this will ONLY happen if im shifting up. It gets completely jammed trying to go down. Occasionally I can get it to spin partially as I am shifting down, but in those situations it freezes and wont spin any further even if I try to coax it along with a screw driver. What this feels like on the shift lever is there is no feedback. All I feel is the resistance of the spring and then it hits the a spot where it just stops the lever from moving. I get a very distinctive metal on metal "tink" and that's it.
      Anyway this is my big hang up at the moment. If I cant get the wheeler in neutral I cant test to see if any of the electronics are working, let alone see if it will turn over for me. As a side note the pull starter is busted, when I pull it I just get the resistance of the spring and it doesn't seem to engage with the motor at all. When the clutch cover was off I grabbed the clutch and spun it clockwise which proved to me that the motor has compression and freely spins.
      So that's where I am at now, and I am more or less out of ideas as to what I need to do to either further diagnose the transmission or (fingers crossed) fix it. I figure all the other stuff can wait, as this seems to be the big hinge point on the project at this moment.
      I wont be at the farm till later, but when I am I will make a short video of the spur gear so you guys can see first hand what's going on.
      I want to thank you guys in advance for any and all advice you may be able to give me. I am glad to have a resource such as this forum and look forward to hearing from you guys!

      I know this seems stupid to ask but how do I know which fuel line goes to which intake valve on my 1996 Polaris trail boss 250 2x4. It’s only single cylinder but I found out today the machine had little to no oil or gas and that caused a ton of problems for me to fix now. So how do I get it right?

      I'd like to purchase a rebuild kit for the OEM carb that came on my 2000 honda trx300ex. Do I need to use the letters/numbers on the carb to search online for a kit or, are there other methods? Thanks!
