BuckBilly's 2009 Honda Rubicon ride report.

Recommended Posts

I bought an 09 Ruby about three weeks ago. Only have 30 miles on it. I will share my opinion of it with you.

It has a 499 cc liquid cooled engine. Part time four wheel drive. Automatic tranny with High and low range. With the ability to be in auto or thumb shift mode.

The tranny is very smooth. It's a hydro stat transmission.I mostly use auto mode, but when I have used ESP mode I also like that feature.

Going into 4x4 mode is also smooth. Engine braking is unbelievable!!!! Handling for trail and dirt road riding is outstanding!! Stock tires work great for stockers. Ergonomics are also great(for me).

I have added a 2500 lbs winch. I will be adding hand guards, and a snowplow soon. I currently modifying the plow from my old Ozark to fit. I have widen it from 46 inch to 58 inch wide. Looks like something out of a Mad Max movie.

I'm really happy with it. Get some pic when I get the snow plow built and it stops raining.

      Ok guys, I see repair manuals and vin lookups on here, but no place that I can lookup a part number. Is there such a website?

      Hi All,
      I need to replace a sensor on my son's Polaris Sportsman 110.     It physically broke somehow.   It's Polaris p/n 0455053 , the best I can tell.    It's about a $140 part from Polaris.   I'm hoping there may be an auto industry equivalent.   Most of those are around $15 haha.
       
      Thanks!
      Bill

      I was given a "Go-Kart" its an old Carter brothers dlx150 but the engine is not the same that came with this Kart. I am trying to ID it so i can look at getting some parts for it. the pictures attached are of the motor and the only ID marks on it. I am thinking its some sort of 200cc from the 1980's does anyone have a better Idea? I am really trying to get a rebuild kit for the carburetor. on the carburetor is  Keihin 63 AA YKT

      Hello all, I’m working on my sons 99 Yamaha Warrior 350. When I pulled the plastic cover off left side of engine, I can see oil leak at the seal. I pulled the bolt out and then the starter boss(I guess that’s what it’s called?) I can see that the boss doesn’t make contact with the seal. Is there a spacer of some type that slides on to the boss, to make contact with the seal? This seal is held in place with a plate with 3 screws in it. This boss slides into the bearing in the stator. I have been to parts websites and I don’t see what I’m needing. Maybe it’s just the wrong seal?

      I have been working on a 2004 arctic cat 400 that will run for a while with a new coil installed then after a few min start sputtering and quit. Checking the coil afterward it it is burned up. There is 350 Plus volts going to the coil and I'm not sure if I need a CDI or its something else? Flywheel magnets have been ruled out!
