2001 Can Am DS650 Not Starting

Recommended Posts

I just got a 2001 ds650, has a Ron woods cdi box, pro circuit t4 exhaust, k&n filter, a few other things , anyway it ran perfectly for me tons of power no weird sounds looks brand new, I rode it around in the woods today for about 3 hours fine no problems at all, I turned it on and off about 15 times and it started everytime no issue, than towards the end it just shuts off and won't star back up, it turns over but won't start, I thought I was out of gas maybe even though it looked like a quarter tank at least so I put it on reserve and nothing still, I thought maybe I had flooded it so I left it alone for five hours and still wouldn't star and now my frigging battery is dead, anyone know what it could be? It has never not started before it always runs perfect, than nothing, the lights and fan and everything still came on but it just would not start, it wanted to, I'd appreciate any help or tips at all, on anything about the ds, thanks

Is it possible to push start one of these with a dead battery or does it need a fully charged battery no matter what, also there is a lot of mud up in the battery area, could this be why it won't start or push start out of no where

Yup the lights and fan come right on, not now because I tried starting it too many times, but yes they did the engine just wouldn't fire up

Hmm...I wonder if you have a dead spot in the starter motor. Try tapping that starter with a hammer.

I tried push starting it from where it was stuck out in the woods 3 or 4 times but nothing, we had plenty of speed it should have started, it literally ran perfect and just shut off out of nowhere after not goving us a problem all day

, I ended up having to push it about a mile to my buddies house , that was fun, what a workout, I'm wondering if its just the battery, or maybe the ground wire, or maybe spark plugs, but I dunno I'm not familiar with these atvs, it turns over just no start, if the battery is super old and almost dead I'm wondering if this would prevent it from starting

Would a dead spot in my starter motor cause my wheeler to just shut off while it was already running though, cus it just shut off out of no where and wouldn't start after that

And thank you for your help also I appreciate it like I said I'll take in any knowledge about this quad that I possibly can, I'll need to know it all at one point or another

I had a spark plug crap out on me in my raptor while warming it up. It was like someone flipped a switch, was running fine and just died. Try a new plug, even if it sparks outside the combustion chamber. Under compression can be a different story.

      I have a 2001 yamaha yfm350x and it has a brand new top end, new carburetor (stopped the leaking problem and is now getting gas to it), new CDI box, new stator, handlebar switches work, off-and-on switch works, new starter solenoid (works), new neutral relay (works), ordered a new Rectifier on its way, good strong blue spark. Has compression, valves are right. Timings is right and is TDC. When I try to start it it just makes a loud popping noise like its backfiring but it's not because its not running when I push the throttle all the way and when i barly push the throttle it try to start but won't, so I'm trying to figure out what could be the problem not starting now, Getting very fustrated with this thing and put some work and money into it and it's not still not working. This is the only atv I ever had that I can not figure out the problem to get running. Need help please..

      I have a Yamaha 350 in at once to try to fire up but won't. It's getting gas fire air and it has a lot of compression but still struggles to start check the timing it's top dead center valves are good valves are adjusted everything's working but won't fire I put my hand over the carb suck in gas and it tries to but it makes a lot of black smoke. Also when I put my hand over do you carb and tried to start it there's black black nasty stuff in the gas. So I don't know if it's trying to burn too much or what it is the gas tank clean and it anything to do with the gas it's with it firing. Took the spark plug out and it's pure black. What is dried up black not nasty corroded wet looking. Need help to solve the issue

      Several months ago, I finally got around to fixing the bayou. Rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel selector switch, hoses and fuel filter, and she ran great. Only had 2 minor issues since then where, at higher speeds, it acted like it was choking out when I let off the throttle.
      Lately I've noticed if I let it go for more than a week, it almost drains the battery dead trying to start. I initially thought battery, but after inspecting I found very little if not any fuel flow through the line until it starts and runs.
      I'm a little baffled and don't have much time to mess with it as most my free time right now is spent on getting my rv up and ready for hunting season in the next 3 weeks. So any help on quick diagnosis checks would be helpful. Otherwise I'll just keep starting it every 3-4 days to keep things primed until I'm done hunting.
       
      Oh, and another question on a different topic. Does anybody know what the mounting brackets on the front rack are for? I'm referring to the 2 angled metal tabs with threaded holes that are located on the left, near your knee when sitting on the quad?

      I have a Yamaha Warrior 350 in the cam sprocket won't line up with the cam mark on the top end on it. I advanced it Forward 1 tooth and reverse it one tooth. Tries to start but won't. And of course I did the T on the flywheel for top center and it still won't line up.. need help trying to figure out the problem.

      When it comes to adding more power to your ATV, the first thing that usually comes to mind is bolting on a slip-on exhaust. However, that usually means you are also bolting on a lot more noise. HMF do...

      I know this tooic has been addressed by many, I’ve looked through many forums and pages. I did not find anything like the problem i have.
      I have a 2007 Kingquad 450. I have a new fully charged battery. When i turn the key, the dash flashes and seems to struggle before getting fully lite. We can hear a small relay near the computer clicking, i think it is the fuel pump relay. When i turn off the engine kill switch and press the starting button relays click and all the power shuts off, i turn the key off, engine kill switch then start over, power is there. Atv will start with pull start, but not elextricly. if i try to use my winch, all power cuts and engine dies. 
       
      Can anyone tell me what it may be? or has anyone fsced an issue like this before?

      I have a 1999 Sportsman  500, it was running fine, than started to lose power in the winter, I adjusted the idle screw and away I went, than a few weeks ago it died, I have found that i am flooding the engine, compression was at 70PSI and due to the compression release mech. i assume i am good as it compared to the same PSI on a 2000 sportsman 500 i have. i cannot start the atv unless i go full throttle and it starts an runs for about 30 sec than dies, again it is flooded. i ordered a new carb off ebay as i could get one for around $40. put that in same issue, i have checked the timing, (good), valves out of adjustment i adjusted to .006 still same issue, i have found the exhaust lobe and rocker arm to have some wear, i have ordered new ones, but am looking for any other input in this area as well. would the exhaust cam and rocker arm cause the engine to flood? i have used a bore scope and the piston liner has good cross hatching still? any input would be great.
