2006 Arctic Cat 400 - No Top Speed

Recommended Posts

Hey Gents, first post on here and I hope I can get some help.

I just bought a 2006 Arctic cat 400 auto. Not sure how it was working before as I bought it at an auction.

1- Start no problem

2- Replace oil, oil filter and fuel (just for maintenance and used ATV oil)

3- runs good (no engine noise)

Here is the problem "I can't go over 30 KM"

I can go and drive in Low, Neutral and reverse no problems.

The fuel pump make a little knock noise. Would it be possible it need a new pump?

Dirty carburator??

Just noticed when I went for a drive that it doesn't change gear. Goes to 4000 rpm and stays there.

let me know what you think

Thanks

I just called the local atv guys and they told me that it might be the TPS (throttle position sensor) anyways I can check it myself?

A knock in the fuel pump is normal. Mine really sounds loud with the seat off.

I would download the manual and see if there are readings you can take on the sensor.

Does the H for high come up on the pod? or does it display and E?

Maybe you can pull the belt cover and make sure there is nothing in there like water or belt dust then check the deflection on the belt. It would be alot easier to check that stuff first before getting into the motor and trans.

Lastly I hope you used wet clutch safe oil. I am sure you did but just covering all the angles.

Hello Swamp, thanks for the answer, more info:

Th H, R, L and N show in the pod.

I can drive the ATV only in first gear in L, H, and R.

Pull the belt cover and everything works as it's suppose to. I tried it in gear and both pulley turn. No water but some dust in there.

I used proper oil but I'm not the first owner.

I was asking about the fuel pump because I can't go over 4000 rpm in neural so not sure if that has anything to do with it.

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      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.

      Looking at buying a used ATV and was curious as to what the average lifespan is on one? I was browsing ebay and I saw one with 120 hours on it. I'm not sure if that is a lot or a little? Saw another with 1400 miles for a reasonable amount of money and another that looked better but had 4200 miles on it.
      How many miles or hours is too much? I'm looking at 4x4 ATV's for carrying deer stands etc into the woods and hopefully carrying deer out
