Leota Michigan Trail Riding First One Of The New Year!
Neighbor dropped off his 2010 Ranger 400 HO. Said it was missing and backfiring. I replaced the plug as it was carboned up (kids use the side x side for chores and it is only idled around yard) Unit ran great, sent back home and it ran great for about 5 hours of run time and then it wouldn't start. He brought it back and I changed the plug again and it would start but would not run great. Pull plug and it was really wet. I suspect the carb needs cleaning and that is the direction I plan on going unless someone else knows anything about these units. ( I have never worked on one of these).
If you know of something else I should check let me know.
Also I am looking for a service manual for this unit.
Hi, I'm new to ATV/UTV's and am looking for any advice that would help to repair my 2018 Ranger 500. I got it from an insurance auction and have never owned one before.
It looks like it was sunk deep. Found rocks and sand in the roof, milky oil in the air filter box, water in the fuse box, etc.
So far, I've cleaned the air box out, vacuumed most of the rocks and sand, checked the engine, trans and diff casings for cracks/leaks.
The battery would not charge while connected so I know there is some short somewhere...probably the wet fuse box.
I plan on drying out the fuse box and all connectors with a hairdryer tomorrow, check the fuses, remove/dry out the ECM and disassemble/clean the air intake. Then install the battery and see if i can get it to key on and see what kind of lights I get.
Need to know what to expect with the engine/trans...
The engine oil dipstick on my 550XP took a dump and the bottom 1/3 was missing. Apparently it's a common occurrence from the bit of reading I've done on it. Anyway I'm not gonna replace it just to have it happen again so I cut the rest of it off and ground it flat to use as a plug.
So now with no dipstick to check oil level I have some choices.
-Buy another dipstick to use as a dipstick...NOT
-Do an oil change and build a depth checker from the new full level
-ask the good people on QuadCrazy! Any one with a like year 550XP wanna measure their dipstick from the base to the end so I can make an oil level check stick?

This is out near Vegas Valley and Hollywood. People have been riding there for awhile now but they have been building stuff out there and I didnt really know what it was till recently. This is some information that I have found about it so far. The link included is a map of the area and what they plan to do.
The trailhead is a vital staging area for motorized and non-motorized trail users near the County Wetlands Park and the Sunrise Management Area. This trailhead also provides linkages to the River Mountains Loop Trail, Rainbow Gardens Trails, and the Flamingo Arroyo Trail. Construction is set to begin in late February and the trailhead should be ready for trail users by late Fall 2006
I don't have any lack of power on short hills, but when I get a long uphill road the ATV will slow way down to about 30KPH. If I work the throttle to give it more gas it just gets worse. Then if I let up on the throttle it runs better, but of course slows down even more. Am I looking at a carb problem, or what? I tried getting at the air screw, but can barely get a screwdriver in it and then can't adjust...won't turn at all. I cannot find a fuel adjustment screw anywhere I can see on the carb, and the manual does not show one. My plug is burning black, wouldn't that be too much fuel, and how do I correct that? It may be that the engine is flooding when I go uphill and throttle up.
