Noiw these Quad runners are something new to me. So if I seen a little slow its just that these are new to me.

And I will take any help I can get

Thanks

it said there might be a number off, but this is what it said it was ....

if you can shine a trouble light there and look with a magnifying glass, you'll probably get it spot on.

but i think you have all the important numbers there for sure

there is a sight glass with 2 marks in the casing indicating high and low levels below the fill cap. for the weak spark i have found a weak battery when using the starter will produce  a weak spark. but using the pull rope produced a strong spark.

      OK, sooo  I finally did the old skid plate and screen removal to clean out my oil sump during an oil change...  This bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.  Runs like a top still...  Very few issues over the years after buying it used.
      But boy I wasn't expecting to see this!  Piece of a circlip, stuck up in the screen, and a another shard of metal and maybe a piece of gasket material.  Nothing in the oil but that...  Pristine otherwise, and still runs like a top.  Always has.
      Soooo, is it a wrist pin clip?  That's the only thing I can think of like this that could end up in there.  But definitely wanted to throw it out to guys that have seen the innerds of these more than I have.
      The valves on this thing are still within the factory spec even.  Been a really good lil workhorse...
      Any other ideas?

      Hello everyone, i have 2000 Polaris Trail Blazer 300 I’ve been stumped on for weeks. I’m having a lot of issues starting the quad. I cleaned the carb spotless because I thought it was a carb issue and bought a new fuel line because it wasn’t getting fuel. The carb gets fuel perfectly fine now but it won’t start. The spark plug I a little worn out but it’s good enough for just one start. The only time it does “start” is when I spray starter fluid into the carb. But it never stays on. It’ll start for a bout a second then just die out immediately even if you’re giving it some throttle and the choke is on. I have no clue what I should do. If you need more information, have questions, or have any slight idea what the issue would be and how I could resolve it. Please reply ASAP. Thank you.

      I have a 2000 Arctic Cat 300 4 wheeler. I have been having some carburetor issues. So i bought a new carb. Now I'm having these issues. The unit will start and idle fine, when i go to accelerate it wants to cut off. So i checked to make sure it was getting gas and the fuel filter will be full of gas and then once the carb opens the filter drains down and will not refill quick enough to run. So i checked to make sure gas was flowing to the filter and it is flowing fine through the line. I remove the filter and run the gas line directly to the carb and the engine idle fine and then it will run good as i ride it for about 10 minutes then it will start with the same issues again i cannot accelerate enough to move the 4 wheeler. Every time i accelerate the unit will cut off. What is wrong with this thing. My 400 Arctic Cat is doing the same thing except it will backfire, I'm lost i have tried everything i know to do, what am i missing here. Thanks for your help

      I’m just wondering what year bike i got? it seems the vin has been rubbed off i got it from a auction here in Australia engine starts but seems has a dirty carb wont idle well
      and also has a problem I put it in gear and makes a grinding noise but does not move it the neutral light goes out but then when I change gear it grinds more in the higher gears as well I’m guessing the differential is stuffed so wanting to buy new part for it will start the pull down next week

      this is the first bike I have worked on used to dealing with cars

      So this’ll be long I’ll give all the background first to see my issue skip to the ***
      Hey I picked up a pit bike and a foreman for 800 the pit bike was running but the foreman was locked up.  Sold the pit bike but when I took the top end off the piston I only found half a piston left.  So knowing the rest of the piston was down in the crankcase I knew it had to be pulled and gone thru completely.
      to pull the motor I went ahead and pulled the rear end off and unbolted the front diff to pull the drive shafts and pull the motor.  Now I have the motor torn down completely and have all the parts of the piston removed.  I know the rod and crankshaft is shot (heat discoloration and too much up and down play rod to crankshaft).  
       
      ***so I’m wondering while I have the motor apart what should I check for?  I know this motor died from heat as the oil in the head smelled like popcorn.  So what should I check to make sure I fix the issue (overheating I assume) and not just the symptoms (blown up motor lol).
      so put simply I don’t want to just rebuild the motor to have it overheat and repeat the process after 5mins of running
      Here’s some pics

      I have a 1993 Bayou 400 4x4 and I have no spark. I tried 2 new plugs and nothing still.
      I have checked the CDI black wires to body of the box for continuity and none.
      It turns over but no spark, not sure where to go from there.
      Any advise on what and how to check other components would be awesome.
      Thanks: Garry
