Bad trail riding day?

Recommended Posts

First let's start with it being cold out. Took the hour to an hour and half drive to the trails. Got there and me and my friend were the only ones. A few kids and their parents showed up about an hour later. Riding was fun till my friend went down the wrong side of the creek. He started to sink and gave it more gas. Was still moving till he started coming up out of the hole then a complete stop. Front end was in the shallow part of water but the rear end was in the water all the way up to the seat almost. High enough that he couldn't let the motor die cause he has his muffler under water. I back up in the water and yanked him out. His feet were soaked and it's cold so we ended the day.

On the way home though we had a tire go flat on the trailer. Let's not mention we have no spare and if we did we couldn't change it. The trailer is built wrong and the tire cant have air in it to get it in place to be bolted back on. Mobile trailer axle and the trailer frame was built around it. The wheel won't slide past the outer part of the frame and the axle.

Well friend took my truck and I stayed with the trailer while he went home to get his truck and car hauler, which my trailer barely fit on. He got a speeding ticket going home and a warning for loud exhaust on my truck. I had to wait almost two hours for him. Took another hour to get my trailer on his trailer.

I don't need any more bad luck for today.

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.
