So few months ago I acquired a 01 Explorer 4x4 (think its a 350 but not sure)
Anyway the owner said it started reving very high, shut the key off and still kept running
until finally he shut off fuel and it finally died. During the run away he said the exhaust got
red hot and has melted plastics to prove it. Said some thing flew out the tail pipe, I kinda figured
it was the top of the piston. Anyway finally got around to looking at it (have a lot of other projects in the works)
and checked the compression, Shows about 40 psi. Can hear air coming out the carb while rotating the motor over.
Gonna pull it apart eventually, don't hear any noises or binding in the stroke, You think the piston came apart?
any horror stories of these and is it worth my effort and money? Don't really have any money in it yet. Thoughts? Az

I have a Yamaha warrior 350 and it has a brand new head and piston set. The piston has some scoring on the sides so I bought a new piston kit and it should be here tomorrow. The bottom of the cylinder head still has the cross haching on it but the mod and top don't and still looks good. Do I have to rehone it or no? No would be a great answer LOL.. need help. Also if I do is there another way to rehone it without a honing tool.. don't have one..

Have a Yamaha Worrior 350 and replaced everything on it now except the stator.. could that be the problem for it not starting. It's getting everything it needs to run, but the dude who I got it from said he had it running and had a new stator in it but it blew/started smoking, and then it shut off and didn't mess with it since. Was wondering if that could happen and if that's true.. if so I'll buy a new stator and I know it won't blow because every electronic component is replaced on that ATV, except the starter.. have to get a new one because mine blew up in the inside. So need help..

Ok, so got this thing, assembled, and even added acid/assembled the battery with a solid trickle charge and the battery is fine.
As far as I can tell, I have checked all the fuses I can find, but I have ZERO power to anything. Even the console will not light up when turned to ON.
Is there some sort of hidden parental/child disconnect or safety switch that I'm not aware of? ANY help would be appreciated.
Hey all, new guy here. I am wondering if anyone has one of these machines, that can possibly take a picture/tell me where the hoes goes from the timing chain cover. I took this machine apart in the fall of 2014, planning to rebuild the top end, and didn't get around to doing it until about a month ago. motor is back together, and I'm just curious as to where this hose goes. One end has a plastic ribbed fitting in it.
Also, the rear upper nipple on the carburetor.....what goes there? is that just a breather also or?
I have the rubber piece that slides into the rear of the gas tank with 3 hoses: 2 go to the rear, and 1 is just a clear piece of hose that isn't connected anywhere.
I have another one of these machines, but it is 5 hours away.
I guess that's what I get for waiting a year and a half to put it back together lol.
Hello everyone, I have a new to me 86 Bayou 300 that I just bought last night to get around the property. It wouldn't start when I bought it but it did turn over with starting fluid, PO said the carb neeeded cleaned. I cleaned the carb today but need to get the choke wired up as it was not wired up when purchased.
I'm hoping one of you can help me get this choke wired up. Coming from the carb it has 2 wires. 1 is yellow and 1 is black. The PO said I needed to ground one and put the other one on a switch.
Should I do it this way or is there another/better way to do it? I'd really appreciate any help I could get!! Thanks in advance!
I recently bought a 2004 polaris sportsman 400 that is missing a radiator guard and was wondering whether this one from 600 would work. Thanks

If not what would work, I know that sportsman 500 works but I can't find any either.
