One dark night outside a small town in Wisconsin , a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around.

When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed to the fire chief and

said, "All our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant. They must be saved.

However, the roaring flames held the firefighters off. I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact."

Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation

became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president

shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files.

From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck

came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian rural township

volunteer fire company composed mainly of Norwegians over the age of 65.

To everyone's amazement, that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant. Without even slowing down it drove straight into the middle

of the inferno.

Outside, the other firemen watched as the Norwegian old timers

jumped off right in the middle of the fire and fought it

back on all sides. It was a performance and effort never seen before.

Within a short time, the Norske old timers had extinguished

the fire and had saved the secret formulas. The grateful chemical

company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters.

The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film,

asking their chief, "What are you going to do with all that money?"

"Vell," said Ole Larsen, the 70-year-old fire chief, "Da first ting ve

gonna do is fix da brakes on dat focking truck!"

      Hi I just got an Polaris sportsman 500 4x4 ATV the other day. I got it real cheap but I started to go into it because it didn't have compression so I bought a new piston and ring kit for it and installed it, but now when I try to start it all it does is shoot fire out the exhaust or the intake of the carburetor. And a timing is top dead center.;I think I can't really tell another way if it is or not. when I put it together I made sure to piston was on top and the cam lobes where facing down where are the cam sprocket is facing up. It has gas and spark. It did start a couple minutes ago but it didn't stay running and now it won't start. Do you think the valve need to be adjusted more to close better?I'm fixing to try that out and if that don't work what is the problem? Also I made sure everything was together good and right and change the oil and changed out the radiator fluid.

      I was reading another forum recently about fuel leaks and possibility of fire happening. Reminded me of an incident I had a few years ago while working at a Can Am dealership. The quad was a stolen & recovered Outlander 650 that had been tampered with. These quads have an electronic safety system, similar to their DESS system on the sleds. You cannot bypass the key switch and get spark without a computer with factory software. Anyway, I was trying to determine what was damaged since the thief had attempted to hot wire various electronic parts. I got all the extra wires removed and things looked back to stock. Pulled the spark plugs and was going to check for ignition and if the starter still worked. Well, they both worked alright and guess what - the cylinder was flooded with fuel! Instant flames with gas spraying all over...great!! I managed to use my hands to put out the fire, good thing I had on gloves (but choked they were ruined of course, haha). Seems it's possible to flood an engine with efi when you put power straight to the injectors, doh! As in much of life, you cannot take things for granted (I'd only seen carbs flood like that). And even though it had spark, the quad still needed a new ECM to run - that part alone was $1200. So lets hear your stories, crazy stuff happens every day I'm sure.

      Hey all, I recently bought an 01' Sportsman 500 HO from my brother in-law that he's had since new.  It runs awesome, just has 2 slight issues that I am addressing.  1st issue is fuel dripping out of overflow.  I did some searching around and saw that the O-rings in the carb wear out and allow fuel to leak, so I replaced both the Orings inside the carb.  This didn't fix it and still leaking which leads me to believe the float needs adjusted, I'm just not sure on correct way to check and correct this.  2nd issue is no speedometer.  Also in researching this it appears to be Hall Effect/speed sensor.  I'll be ordering one of those to replace, which sounds like a pretty straight forward process.  I guess really my only reason for the post is to get some help on the gas leak issue.  Any thoughts?  Other than that, I love the bike and really enjoy riding it.  Thanks in advance for any replies.
