Hey guys! Stoked to be here because ive found its pretty hard to get help for mini quads
I recently bought a mini quad (it's a piece of poop so i have no clue the make) and it ran perfectly fine. I was running it a few weeks ago all day and it worked fine and the next day when i went to start it, the kickstart bar was super hard to push down but i could still do it, then it would skip and finish off hard to push down.
I have fairly intermediate mechanic abilities so i was able to pull off the cover and start playing around. it seems the kickstart spring is fine but i noticed a bunch of metal shavings. long story short i posted pictures and took a video of how things are kind of running. i assume the gears started grinding and now they wont catch fully, hence the skipping?
Also, im aware the main gear on the left has broken teeth, i found out the hard way when i tried to take off the nut and the teeth broke.

Recently got a 95 KLF300 and have been fixing a lot of electrical issues and finally got it running. It ran good for a day then went to start it the next and it was already done for and not starting. Found that the plug had been fouled and replaced that and now it runs. The problem I have though is that It will only idle with just a little choke on. Will not start with no choke and when choke is applied it revs itself to extremely high RPMs. Before I adjusted the air mixture screw it would only run if the choke was OFF and afterwards it only runs with choke. If I try to give it any throttle it immediately bogs down and will stall out. Starts back up like nothing happened. Timing is dead on.
I have a brand new Chinese carb, old owner didn't have OEM on it. What could be the problem?
Have a 2004 sportsman 500 HO , was working fine, decided to attach a trickle charger(the correct way) onto a newer battery, after a couple of weeks went to start it and no power to speedometer nor would start, but could turn lights on from switches. I put battery charger on and said fully charged. Disconnected positive led from battery and reconnected them, seemed to correct problem, ran the machine for a while then shut it off, and same problem started again,(did not disconnect battery again, but charger said full and lights would work)Any thoughts on where I should go from here?
So title tells all. achine was sitting for two years untouched.
I will post a picture with diagnostic path so far.
Replaced defective start solenoid, starter grinding but engaging.
Replaced all wiring in #1 splice with dark green, brown and red/white wires. Checked all other junctions.
Pull start works phenomenally and starts instantly.
Kill switch does absolutely nothing, but the key will stop the bike and allows it to start. Replaced key switch and pigtail at key switch. As of now all lighting is functional (was not before fixing it)
-has new spark plug
-valves were adjusted
-wiring appears in order after repair
-always starts easily on pull rope
- ignition coil
I am replacing the bendix due to intermittent failure and gapping the pulsar tonight. Also, replacing battery cables and unplugging kill wire from cdi to isolate. Replacing battery wires to starter and ground cable.
I just purchased the referenced 4 wheeler, and it's in dire need of an oil change. I've seen a few different references regarding oil filters. It looks to me like this machine may have the centrifugal filter, which is new to me. Can anyone offer any tips I may need to know before breaking things open? Thanks!
