I'm so close I'm sanding the rusty & pitted exhuast so I can repaint it with high temp header paint. Once it's done & back on the quad it will be ready start it up.

Looking good. A wire wheel makes easy work of sanding the exhaust. The hi temp paint lasts about a year but looks really good. I just use brillo on the header pipes and that makes them look good enough.

Also take it for a spin before you put the plastics back on that is a blast, I smile ear to ear every time.

I hope by the end of today it will be running swampcat it will get a test ride without the plastics. I might even video it. Belive it or not the steel or brass wheels is not working. so now I'm using a belt sander and it's working good but my hands have about had it.

Hey guys as of around 7:40 pm today being thursday my quad started & I backed it up and went forward and once around the yard. I had some wiring problems to workout and now thats done. I for got I unpluged 2 wires when putting the exhuast on & I had to scrape some paint off where the grounds connect to the frame. Now to recheck all my bolts, nuts & hose clamps, cotter pins. Then put on the foot boards & plastics, skid plates. Still have the front bumper to sand and paint & later on the rims & plastics. Camara battery is charging!

Not too fast THERE 2 seals are leaking on the front diff. Always something going wrong looks like about $30 something for all the seals but first I'm going to make sure the diff works for some reason he cut the wires and the front accuator was one of them so I have to fix that first.

I use a little red and tacky between the seals and metal protector, it keeps the sand and mud out. Actually I am replacing the seals on my rear diff today.

Now for the wires that were cut make sure to solder them and apply a little dielectric grease then melt some heat shrink over them. This way you don't have problems there in the future.

Thanks guys! Swampcat thanks for the info soldering the wires & heat shrink was the plan but I got some good news I was able to swap the wired part of my accuator with the one with the cut wires. The reason for this is my diff had locked in 4wd and would not come out and the metal block on my accuator was chewed up and the one I got when I bought the frame is in real good condition. So I got that done today, front brakes bleed and working & the floor boards done. My new seals & bumper bolts will be in tuesday got them order today. Lower front bumper sanded & painted.

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Hi guys I'm in the market for a new ATV.  I narrowed my choices down to King quad 750 Grizzly 700 and Rubicon 520,  I own a 2006 500 Rubicon right now and I like the reliability and power for plowing.  However it is not a capable ATV.  When quading with other guys it falls short with ride quality and ground clearance.   I also have a 500 King Quad 2015 which I like and will keep it for my wife.  It is very strong and reliable also.  However my plan is to sell my Honda Rubicon and replace it with a 2020 of one of the these mentioned above.  Can anyone give me their take on one or all of these machines and why you picked what you picked?

      My four wheeler when i first got it seemed like it was very slow when i first got it and it had no throttle response so i replaced the belt and cleaned all of the rollers thinking that would solve the problem from what i read on the forums. well it turned out that it wasnt. so i went to the next thing i took out the injector to check it out and i seen that there was a tiny bit of debree in it so i cleaned it and it seemed to improve a little bit. but still did not solve the problem. i later found out how to find the trouble codes out from the lcd screen using a paper clip on the diagnostic port and it showed the code which stood for no codes C00. i also forgot to mention that the throttle position censor is working perfect. before i started all of this the four wheeler ran just not to its potential. after my friend and i did the trouble code test the bike wouldnt even start anymore and the injector would spray for a few seconds for the start up then it stops and the fuel injection light comes on and blinks. the four wheeler wouldnt start anymore. i took it over to the local shop and they hooked it up to the computer to see if there was any codes and it still showed it was free of codes. they hooked it up to the fuel pressure gauge and we found that it was making 22 pounds and it should be making around 43. i then bought a new fuel pump and put it in. it now starts and runs for a few seconds and then it stalls out and the fuel injection light comes on again. which then leads me to think it is the ecu now but i want to be sure before i invest around $500 more into it. any opinions on whether or not anyone thinks this is the problem or if they have had a similar problem before would be really appreciated. sorry for writing a novel and not spelling very well. also i forgot to put the year in the title it is a 2007

      How hard is it to change the outer seals on the rear differential mine are leaking fluid and I have no idea on how to change them out any help would be great thanks

      Turn on key, put it in Neutral, lights on steering column light up. NO head lights and the electric start switch will not work. Let is sit for a few hours, started right up. Sat over night and same issue. Checked fuses and they were good. Battery is giving 12 volts. Opened up the ignition assembly and it isnt getting any power it comes up as a .01 on the volt meter. Pulled the spark plug to check for spark and NO spark. Will not pull start either. Unhooked the battery checked the spark while trying to pull start it and got a weak spark.
      Pushed it into the garage and it sat for 2 days. Turned the key and pushed the start button and it cranked but the spark plug wire was off so plugged the spark plug back in and pushed the start button and nothing. If you jump the solenoid it will crank over but not start. Soo confused , anyone have any ideas?

      Hi all...new member here...looks like an awesome site! I searched around, but couldn't find a service manual for an 02 Prairie 650. If someone has one we could download, we"d really appreciate it! We"re needing to replace the front cylinder and head, etc. for this new machine we just bought.
      All responses appreciated. Thanks much!

      I have a 2002 prairie 650 and when i have the handlebars as straight as i can get them the one wheel toes out and isn't straight . is there anyway i can adjust this ? or anyway to rectify it .
    • By Quadguy420
      I recently bought a 2002 prairie second hand for 2000$ .. just for the record it has 28 inch zillas on it .. anyway . whenever i put it in any gear , it takes a second for it to engage ... and when it does it clunks into gear ... is that common for that quad for that year ? or is it cause the previous ower didn;t replace the clutch springs to heavier duty ones ?
