the project I need help on

Recommended Posts

02 prairie 300 has a pull knob beside the idle adjustment knob. Any one know what it's for I'am unsure. The choke is on the handlebars . It's popping back thru the carb & backfiring out the exhuast. The seller said he had the carb cleaned and he put seafoam in the tank.

When you pull it, it will turn the rear main muffler bearing.

I have never seen that before. My fathers 05 prairie doesnt have that

I found out the knob it's a decompression cable I'm going to take the carb a part tomarrow. It's not mine ox a friend ask to to go with him too look at it. It seems to be in good shape rev. dosent work but if I get it running right it will be well worth the money. He got it for 500.00

My friend that bought this one has Baja 3oo I know it from china. He said it runs good but the starter is bad and you have to roll it off I can get it for around 200.00 or cheaper because he's offering to pay me for working on the p 300.

i would make shure to drain the oil from the trans to see if the reason rev. dosent work is that there are gears tore up and in the trans case ... i have a prairie 650 motor sitting in my garage that is that way ... and it has alot of broken gear pieces in the trans case ... they can cause more problems if they are left in there ...

Thanks ck1999-400ex. My friend felt it was worth 5oo based on how it looks and it does run. I did let him know the trans could be a problem and cost would not be cheap to fix it. I'm just going to see if I can get the motor running without popping and backfiring. I'm not tearing into a trans or motor with this carpal tunnal the carb will be hard on me. It got new brake cables, battery, ITP mud lites I don't know what alls been done but I fell he could part it out for more than what he has in it.

thats true ... but an easy way to see if there is alot of metal in the trans is to pull the reverse sensor and neutral sensor ... they have a magnet in them and will attract any extra metal shavings and pieces inside the trans case ....

I'll check that out once we get it running good if we do! I cleaned the carb put it all back togather then fuel pourd out of the over flow in the bowl. I got it running it stopped leaking fuel but seems to be loading up I turn the fuel cock off and once the fuel level got lower it ran great till it run out of fuel. So tomarrow I'm putting in a new carb kit.

      Have a 2005 grizzly 660. Just recently started backfiring and showing incorrect speed. Lifted seat and messed with wire going to starter relay, it stops for a bit but seems to come back.
      I ended up pulling all the pins out of the connector for the relay and added new pin/connectors for all 4 wires. fixed it for a little bit but came back shortly after. This was a new starter relay i installed a few months ago. Anyone know if a bad starter relay would do this?

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      I have a Motobecane 50cc moped that needs a home. I picked it up a few years ago for a restoration project but never got around to it. It is complete and would be an excellent father - son project. All the parts needed are available at "treatlandtv.com". If interested it is yours for the taking. I am located in Maryville, Tn.

      Just a new question of opinion to assist a new rider. I want to get a 4 wheeler and my fist choice of the three is small project but my main concern is availability of parts. Option two would be used but then there is the problem with ATVs not knowing how to swim. Don't really want to but one that drowned and got mouth to mouth. Last would be new. Opinions and experiences welcome.

      Scored this today, it's a 91 Warrior, PO claims to have a lot of new guts in it. Swingarm bushings are shot. Turns over, and looks pretty straight. traded a 78 XS11 dresser and a 76 Xt500 for it.
      the dresser had been up on kijiji for a few months at 750 with a few tire kickers but no takers, and the XT was a 100 dollar deal.
      Stupidest thing was, the xs runs on 2 holes, and I kicked the bejeezus out of the xt last nite.. The xs fired right up, and the xt started 2 kicks. Still hated both of them and glad they are gone.

      Bought this 1995 Yamaha Moto-4 350 from my wifes cousin the other day for 200 bucks... carb needs rebuilt, new intake manifold, ignition switch, petcock, brakes, battery and tires. I figure I will spend around 500 in parts... so I will have 700 in it.. do you guys think that is an ok deal? I know it looks pretty rough. But enjoy cleaning and painting. I already have the paint scheme I plan on putting on it in my mind.
      THanks guys.
