I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
Thanks in advance!
Im loking at buying this atv, owner said when he put in gear and drove it that it made a grinding noise so they parked it, said he has the rear end off but hasnt taken it apart yet, sounds like bearings any other ideas? Very nice shape can get for 600
Hey folks, new ATV owner and new to the forum. My 2010 Arctic Cat 500 has a whining or slight grinding noise from the clutch area. It does it when revving in neutral or in gear. It also makes the noise when the atv is off and rolled by hand. Any ideas what parts need to be replaced? Thanks! -Brandon

Hello, my 500 makes this clattering noise when started and when it warms up (15 min riding or going up a hill) it dies and you can't get it started until it cools off. Usually let it sit for 15 min and it will start back up again. I have torn it apart expecting to see a bad piston/rings/wrist pin etc. but nothing is bad. I did not check the valve clearance before tearing it apart figured that valve clearance wouldn't keep it from starting once warm. Anyway, have taken off both side covers and the clutches. Nothing seems to be worn or obvious. Anyone have any suggestions on what to look for? Would a bad waterpump cause this?
I've recently acquired a 1995 Kawasaki Lakota KEF300A1 that seems to have a pretty slack chain. I've found an owners manual that talks about the procedure to tighten it to spec, but it mentions "inserting a bar provided in the tool kit into the axle housing and turning it upwards/downwards"... the problem is I don't have the tool kit that came originally with the ATV. Its hard to tell from the picture (and not ever having done this before), but it looks as though this "bar" may just be a pry bar/leverage tool. Is that so and I could just use a screwdriver or anything that fits into the hole? or is this a specialty tool and do you know where I can find one?

When i get to about 10 mph i get a very (tinny ) noise from the right side of the engine / clutch area.
originally I thought maybe something got caught between axle and skid plate ie : rock and was just rubbing producing that sound.
I took off the skid plate and drove it and still had same sound.
Checked the lug nots and they were a bit loose , tightened them and still same noise.
Took off the what looks like an inspection plate on top of clutch cover and looked inside this apart and it is dry of any fluid.
Not sure if there should be any fluid in there or not had clutch replaced 2 yrs ago with nominal riding since.
I do not have the time or knowledge to take this apart and try and diagnose. The only repair areas around here are absolutely terrible.
The shop I normally do the work are 2.5- 3 mos. behind. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
