Swampcat says Hi

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I just wanted to say a few things about me and that I plan on hanging out around here a bit more. Myspace and Facebook are starting to drive me crazy.

My name is Rob and I ride in NEPA. My name is the same on all other forums.

My goal is to ride once a week, even if it is just to the local spot.

I love to tinker with my Arctic Cat, so if you have questions hit me up.

I also drive a Kawi Teryx when the Cat is either broken or being worked on.

Anything else just ask.

Welcome to QUADCRAZY swampcat07! You said you love to tinker...have you done any modifications to your AC? How do you like your Teryx? I was thinking of getting a UTV one day myself.

Thanks guys. Below are the mods on the cat. As for the Teryx I love it. I bought a first year model when it became a leftover so no Fuel Injection but besides that no complaints. It flies down the trails and the suspension/ride can't be compared to the Cat. I love the wide stance and long wheelbase.

The secondary mod is very noticable, so much so that I almost never use low or my brakes anymore. The only negative thing is that you ride with the rpms higher. Cheap mod and you can always reverse it. The circuit breaker mod is to replace critical fuses with circuit breakers. I did the main and the fan. This way if you blow a fuse all you have to do is shut the atv off and then turn it back on. So if your stuck on a hill you do not even have to get off.

For the Fuses in the Newer Cats:

Replace the fan fuse with a Circuit Breaker. (Bussmann BUS CB21215 Type II or BUS CB21115 Type I)

Replace the main fuse with a Circuit Breaker (Bussmann BUS CB21130 Type I, )

I used the Type Is

I am going to do new rings and maybe a new high compression piston. I want to get a highlifter secondary spring and also suspension springs from them. Also I have big plans for the carb but I am not sure I want to share at this point.

I just posted a blog about all the mods and maintainance I have already completed.

I will have to find out what motor you have in ther before I can recomend anything. Look like from viewing your garage you have a few things done.

yea i have done a few things its a 400cc,, um the highlifter springs are great as u see from my avatar i have them,, u def should get the spring compressor they have unless u already own one.. for u stock springs u could put hockey pucks underneath the springs if the sag is to much...

for the secondary spring if thats all u want i would recommend going to the epi website and just picking out one, cause the HL kits come with the primary and secondary springs...

for the carburetor r u doing that mod that was in the HL forums were u drill out 1/8 whole in the carb to improve acceleration??

Cliping the spring and drilling the slide is a good start but this might be a bit diffrent. I want to see if it is going to work before I say anything.

      Hi guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      And the new 300FW is already wounded. Something got in a bind and blew the whole chunk of case out around the primary drive gear at the back of the motor. In the pic you can see the crack along the top...there is a big chunk missing from the bottom. And it won't roll....but the front and rear diffs both seem fine. Unfortunate. This looks to be a bit of a project. Still feels like it will shift through gears so i'm wondering if the ring and pinion just jumped a bit and blew something to pieces.  I have a parts bike.  But will this require the case to be split and transmission completely disassembled?  I assume you can't just slide the broken primary drive out and slide the replacement in?

      Looking for a used crankshaft (cheap) for a 2003 Honda Recon or 250EX. Several model years will work. I only need the timing chain sprocket, but I can remove it from the old crank.

      I am a new atv owner...I bought a used atv this summer (pretty sure it is a wolverine but reg card from last owner didnt actually say that so idk for sure). It ran great for most the summer and early fall but one day I tried starting it and it turned over a while without starting and then suddenly it quit turning over at all. No click or anything.
      I charged battery and light turns on showing neutral and heatlight can go on.
      A few other things that may be pertinent: The pull start is missing, I have a fluke multimeter but not many other advanced tools (or relevant experience), there is an extra aftermarket led light attached to front but it doesnt work either... never looked into why since I didnt need it. 
      I looked for a fuse box and didnt find one.
      Please recommend some easier things to try first as I really want to avoid taking it in if I can (having one income and 4 kids can keep out extra cash, plus I want to learn). Pictures would be awesome if possible. Thanks!
