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.

      Anyone know where I can get a free download? I had one a month or so ago on my 'puter but one day it flipped out and I lost it. I gotta put the top end of this 450 together (hopefully today) and I need some info. I've searched and searched this morning, but, I can't find one. Thanks!

      Hi, I'm new to ATV/UTV's and am looking for any advice that would help to repair my 2018 Ranger 500.  I got it from an insurance auction and have never owned one before.
      It looks like it was sunk deep.  Found rocks and sand in the roof, milky oil in the air filter box, water in the fuse box, etc.
      So far, I've cleaned the air box out, vacuumed most of the rocks and sand, checked the engine, trans and diff casings for cracks/leaks.
      The battery would not charge while connected so I know there is some short somewhere...probably the wet fuse box.
      I plan on drying out the fuse box and all connectors with a hairdryer tomorrow, check the fuses, remove/dry out the ECM and disassemble/clean the air intake.  Then install the battery and see if i can get it to key on and see what kind of lights I get.
      Need to know what to expect with the engine/trans...

      Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black

      Bike is L model


      Its using the original mikuni carb but im not the best at fixing the carbs and wondering if there is anywhere online that would be able to either walk me through it or help me with it i didnt see a air mixture screw so it seems like im gonna half to open it up and adjust like the float and a couple other things

      It appears that the Service Manual thread at top of forum is dead as all the links no longer work.  I'm actually looking for service manual for a 2000 KVF300 Prairie that I just picked up.  Does anybody have link to one that they can share, or know where I can find one?  Thanks in advance for any help.
