I am looking to see why my 2005 Grizzly 660 won't crank. I have set the valves but suspect a loose timing chain.
When working to remove the valve cover I found a "cap tensioner case" - parts #25 - #299 on Babbitts site.
The cover seems to bridge the valve cover and the cylinder head. What the hell is it and what surprises will I find if I remove it?
Uncharted territory for me.
I bought a "project" Grizzly 660, I think it has been a few people's project. The PO had it for a while and did not have time to work on it. He said the battery was good, but I don't know how he knew because the display was blank, no lights and won't crank or run.
I found a nest under the front cover, by the CVT inlet, a chewed thru wire and a few more without insulation. Rewired those from the connector (black 3 wire to the display) and replaced the fuse as suggested by a search from this site. That got the display working and power to other circuits.
I replaced the aftermarket start switch with a used OEM switch from eBay. Then it would crank a little, and started once for a few seconds.
I'm a small engine mechanic - mowers, snow blowers, etc. In my small engine work I have had a number of rider mowers that would crank about a half turn and then stop. The owners have suspected a bad battery and changed it with no improvement. Setting the valves to spec usually fixed this.
I set the valves on the Grizzly without solving the crank problem. I wonder if the timing chain could be off - slipped a tooth.
I don't know any way to check for this without pulling the head and looking at the timing marks on the cam gear.
Is there another way to check for proper timing?

I have just got a 1995 Bayou 220 from my brother. It is in decent condition ant it has not been used much, yet it has been sitting idle for a long time (4+ years).
The plan is to overhaul it and move it to a location where it will be used 4-6 times a year, so, beyond having the battery charged, the idea is to have it ready and in good condition. It will be stored in a steltered place while waiting to be used.
My questions would be: 1. What things should I carry out as basic overhaul tasks / 2. What are the typical aches, things to watch out for in this model/year.
I definitely plan on changing all the fluids, filters, battery, cleaning the carb, etc. but any specific recommendation from your experience will be of great help.
thanks in advance!

So I finally finished a bike I’ve been working on for my daughter.
Ive been practicing the vinyl thing for a while and making the camo vinyl prints as well as applying them.
This was a bike I dug out of a garage, original owner.
Compleyey broke it down and did my thing to it. So I put a girls touch on it and my 12 yo will be sporting this.
Dont be afraid to say what you think.
After riding for 20 minutes or so check engine hot flashes, I then stop and idle, fan will kick on run briefly warning goes out.
oil, coolant, are both full. The fan appears to be working but does not always come on when I stop and just let it idle while the warning
is flashing. Can turn engine off with warning flashing, fan does not run, can immediately restart warning resets does not flash fan does not run,
runs fine, a short time later warning will come back on. Trying to decide if this is a flow problem maybe thermostat or sensor problem. Have repair
manual on order has not arrived yet.

I have a 2000 big bear 400 manual shift. Does not have a shift lever on gender like a Kodiak has left foot operated rn12345 on left foot lever. I replaced the stator and pick up coil and now it is difficult to shift. I marked (indexed) the lever, rod and pivot clamp prior to removal and not sure where to go . Maybe a clutch adjustment ? Anyone have a manual for this model ? I was sent a manual but it is for a shiftless Kodiak yet it states big bear as well
I have a 110cc atv not sure of a brand its a Chinese model. I put on a new harness with cdi solenoid and all those. I have put a new starter on, and carburetor. I bypassed the start button cause it was just making the solenoid click. with the new button switch the atv will crank but not start. I tried to jump the solenoid and it did nothing. I am stumped. also I noticed gas leaking from the carburetor and when I took the filter off there was gas in it. I cleaned the carburetor and nothing was stuck or clogged. can someone help me out.
I have searched all over and can't find anything on how to adjust the valves on my sons 2007 Polaris sportsman 90. Has anyone done this? Anyone have a manual for the 90 showing how to do it? I need to get this done pretty quick, since he has a ride coming very soon. Thanks.
