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.

      Hi Guys, I'm a newbie but pretty handy with a DMM (controls technician). I have been fighting a junker quad i picked up as a project bike, was assured it would run if I replaced the battery and cleaned the carb. I replaced the battery, rebuilt the carb with a OEM kit. FIxed all my switches and foul played circuitry from the last guy.... So I could get it to start long enough to test the quad, it seems okay from a trans/engine point. However I couldn't get the carb adjusted to idle to save my life with the idle air screw or the thumb screw on the card for the slide. I took it to a friend who is much more familiar with yamaha and quads and he double checked my carb rebuild all was fine, he adjusted the float to make the fuel not overfill which i missed.
      He pulled the air intake, got it started and couldn't get it to idle with or without air filter. We started looking at the spark plug (new) and he tested it with a spark plug clamp meter, tested good, pulled it and grounded and it had spark but he felt it was weak. I order a working used oem coil to try the easy things first. When I ohm out the coil on the quad with my Fluke i'm seeing .4 ohms on primary (ground lug to male connector) and 18K ohms on secondary (inside boot to ground lug). Seems like this forum is full of bear trackers so I'm hoping someone has some ideas to help me figure where to go with this. His thought was he know I ave fuel and he knows I have air, spark would be next. I have spark but possibly weak. Thanks

      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.

      OK, sooo  I finally did the old skid plate and screen removal to clean out my oil sump during an oil change...  This bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.  Runs like a top still...  Very few issues over the years after buying it used.
      But boy I wasn't expecting to see this!  Piece of a circlip, stuck up in the screen, and a another shard of metal and maybe a piece of gasket material.  Nothing in the oil but that...  Pristine otherwise, and still runs like a top.  Always has.
      Soooo, is it a wrist pin clip?  That's the only thing I can think of like this that could end up in there.  But definitely wanted to throw it out to guys that have seen the innerds of these more than I have.
      The valves on this thing are still within the factory spec even.  Been a really good lil workhorse...
      Any other ideas?

      So I dug my warrior out of storage replaced the carburetor with one off Amazon & it was running great. Last week it didn't want to start it would crank & I could smell gas but nothing. I replaced the starter,stator,solenoid,spark plug & coil & resistor but still not starting. Checked the stator and its at 30 ohms tried using starter fluid but nothing. I am completely lost and could use some help thank you

      I have a yamaha big bear 400, tested all fuses and relays. When I turn on key I get nothing, no neutral light or headlights. Could it be the key switch bad?

      Hey guys, new owner here of a 2001 Honda Rancher 350 4x4 manual shift and I am loving this little machine so far! 
      However, the previous owner has mounted a Kimpex Nomad storage trunk/passenger seat and some random passenger pegs.  The side bars that carry the passenger pegs are only bolted to the cargo rack - the lower ends are not attached!  They end with a small triangular plate with a hole for a mounting bolt, but there is no place to bolt it to the Rancher foot peg - so they must have been designed for a different ATV.
      The Nomad is a pretty nice looking setup, but it has clearly overloaded the rear cargo rack and broke two of the rack mounting ears on the frame.  I am planning to take it all apart and repair the mounting ears and beef up the cargo rack.
      What is your opinion of running one of these "passenger seats" on this size of ATV? 
      Are there any potential problems besides exceeding the weight limit of the cargo rack?
