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!
Hi all, does anyone know what type of plastic is used for making ATV fairings.
In particular Suzuki Quadrunner 1992, if i cannot get a plastic for it in Red for the rear i will attempt repair.
I have a King Chrome plastic welding kit, however you need to know what type of plastic you are welding.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everybody name is Joe and Im out here in the hi-desert of SoCal. Still alot of good riding out here locally. Bought my old lady a quad a few years back and I always rode dirt bikes. Had a 2004 CR250R. On thanksgiving I was doing a big stand up wheelie down the road about 70mph and looped it:aargh:. I broke my feemer in 4 spots and compound fractured my l2 & l3 in my lower lumbar. I traded the bike for a quad a 2002 400EX, its like brand new, and even though it hurts to ride still Im on the thing every other day cruising some little trails down the street from the house, PHYSICAL THERAPY:biggrin:. Ive been riding since I was 9 so I love to ride and now Im looking forward to making this quad the sickest on the block. Looking forward to BSn and getting to know the QUADCRAZY familia whats up from SOCAL and IM gone now.
