The Japan Disaster

Recommended Posts

It is so sad to see on the news what is going on over there, it's just unreal. The earthquake triggering a tsunami is just a disaster...but these nuclear plants failing with explosions and leakage is just terrible. I just saw a news alert that workers are evacuating one of the damaged nuclear power plants right now. How much can one nation take? I just hope it doesn't turn into a Chernobyl situation for them and the world.

Our hearts go out to them.

On another note....I just got back from Hawaii 2 weeks ago, and to hear that they had a tsunami alert (thankfully did not amount to much) and rushed everyone up to the top floors of the hotel in Waikiki where my wife and I were staying, really made me think. Crazy how natural tragedies occur.

      Hope everyone is having a great weekend,
      While riding my quad just quit, I mean dead. No life on the dash, no crank and obesity no start. 
      Had a quick look under the plastic, batt reading 12.7v power at the key switch.
      Changed the power pack, still no luck.
      Anyone else have similar problems?
      I don't see a fuse box/panel, is there fusible links in the system? If so where di I start looking?

      Hello All
      I'm kinda new to ATVs. I just bought a 1987 Suzuki quad runner 230 Dual Range. I'm having a problem finding info on it. It's very clean, only 2.800 miles. The front wheels are only 30 in.center to center. I was thinking about adding wheel spacers to give it more stability. I realize the added stress on ball joints and bearings. I'm wondering if there are any other concerns? Any input is greatly appreciated!

      It's been a long time since I have used a forum, I was the admin of one for quite a few years, had thousands of daily active members, with lots of crazy posts and spammers, so I salute the admins. Anyway, just waving my greasy hands, Hopefully I can help others out.

      Hi all, 
      Just looking for a second opinion before I start ordering parts.  It looks like from the below tests it must be a failing stator. 
      Background - quad runs fine but when I use winch it will drain battery, I can then pull start but even after running for 20 mins if I turn it off, battery still dead and does not seem to get charged at all.  Voltage at battery after charging using trickle charger is 12.5.  Start up and voltage shows 13.1 at idle, if I rev it up voltage drops to 12.5.  LED lights also flicker at night even with fully charged battery.   Really more annoying than anything and if it is stator I prob will not change until it becomes more of an issue or maybe during next oil change.
      Thanks for looking, appreciate any replies!
      Stator plug and letters show how I tested.
      [ ]  A  [ ]
      B      C
         [ ]
      Checked resistance on stator (manual says .1 to .7) 
      A = .7
      B = OL
      C= OL
      Voltage   idle and 3/4 throttle
      A = 31/55
      B = 15/33
      C = 15/32
