Welcome to QUADCRAZY! When was the last time you changed your plug(s)?

What year is your atv?

Can't you use a 3/8 ratchet, spark plug socket, and extension bar...with a swivel?

Mandy, your first post says if your above 2nd gear and have it "full Throttle" it misses out. Unless it has an after market CDI box it will have a rev limiter to keep it from over reving. If you shift to a higher gear but run half to 3/4 throttle how does it run?

Hey Indykwg,

yea it does that in third and above i have the digital display on mine it gets to abt 3 on the rev counter then i change... i tired the throtle at about 3/4 and its like its starving for power or something then i open it fully and it still kind of jerks and like misses but if i drop all the way to first it somehow feels like it kick starts again and it rides fine.

Definately change the spark plug. Its the cheapest and fastest fix. If that dosen't get it post back. Could be a bare spot on the coil wire shorting out or the wires to the coil shorting as the ride gets bumpier at higher speeds.

Sounds like you are running out of fuel in the bowl, maybe an improperly adjusted float. Could be that the carb needs to be cleaned out as well. The other possibility I see is that the CDI or pickup coil could be malfunctioning. Couldn't hurt to check the valve clearance, compression and timing chain as well. At any rate, definately change the plug first, and look at the color of the insulator on the old plug, the condition of the spark plug can be a good indicator of your problem.

      Have a Bayou 400. sometimes when I press the start button i hear the solenoid click but the starter does not engage. Here is the strange thing though, when that happens if I kick the kick start just once then press the start button starter engages normally. Any ideas?

      Anyone familiar with these models? Its a new to me quad, picked it up for basically nothing... Just time and materials now, this looks expensive.

      Hey all new member so I'm sorry if this isn't the correct place to post, but I'm having trouble with a 2000 polaris magnum 500 I just acquired. The quad ran when I got it but was having problems that sounded like the camshaft, and sure enough camshaft lobe was pretty much gone, so we replaced the camshaft and exhaust rockers and now the quad doesnt have spark. We had the quad running right before we tore the old camshaft out and now no spark. Anybody else ever have a problem similar? We've been checking for loose wires, checked grounds, and double checked timing but cant get it figured out so any advice would be appreciated! Thanks

      Hello,
                      I have a 2005 Yamaha Bruin 350 atv,  I live in Pennsylvania and  planned on using it in Colorado in a few weeks.  I'm being told by people that I may run into some issues at the higher altitudes ( 6500 to 9000 feet ) since the atv has a carburetor.  Can someone provide some insight?  Thanks.

      If we had a dollar for every time the question “Which is really faster, the 700 or the 450?” shows up in our inbox, mailbox, or voicemail, we’d be putting this magazine together from a bungalow on a barely inhabited tropical isle named Quadhama.

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
    • By alexcross324
      Hi all, I try to find this manual in the threads but you have a lot of stock here
      Cannot find this particular manual.

      Thanks if you could help me with that.
      Im new here so if I did something wrong, please tell me.
