New Cat Owner with questions...

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up an '05 4x4 manual, I got it home and started to go over it as it needed some TLC. When I pulled of the side panels there were factorty 650 H1 stickers on there, I pulled one up, the paint was brand new looking under it. It seems crazy for those to be there, I assumed that someone other than the factory put them on there, or is this something common to the Cat's that I am unaware of?

Also can't find the choke on this thing anywhere...any suggestion?:)

I've also looked high and low for the VIN location, no luck...I have the title, could not get the VIN to work in the VIN decoder. Do these bikes have model prefix numbers (i.e TRX450 etc.)?

Thanks in advance.

The only 650 I believe back then was the kawi v twin. See what manufacturer is on the motor Kawi Suzuki or Arctic Cat. The 500M is likely a suzuki motor and is a very solid quad.

I think the H1 was started in 2006 and had black plastics.

I believe it may have an auto choke like the newer models did. Check to see if there are wires running to the carb.

The vin is on the frame under the rear plastics. I can get an exact location as soon as I get a chance.

It is a Suzuki motor, and does have black plastics. I'll take a look at the auto choke thing. I'll dig around some mor efor the VIN.

I appriciate the help.

Look under your left front wheel well and the VIN should be on the main part of the frame.


Thanks I'll take a look.
