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.

      I've got a king quad 750cc has anyone converted the fuel pump relay to a stronger fuel pump relay on there king quad?

      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

      So my Yamaha grizzly 700 wasn't going into reverse for some reason but Jon and George figured it out on what to do to fix that problem for me. Jon Talks about how he was able to fix that problem my Yamaha Grizzly was having with the reverse.
      On a side note we are so close to 1k subs! hell ya!

      Anyone familiar with these models? Its a new to me quad, picked it up for basically nothing... Just time and materials now, this looks expensive.

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
