Took a ride to see how much snow we had up where I like to go track'in, but because of a drift about half way to where I wanted to go, I had to turn around & ride some lower elevations. Had a GREAT DAY as always !! :partyc:

Which means I was out rid'in again !! :partyc:
First however, I got some new tires last week ... some Pit Bull Growlers in 27.5X11R & 9RX12's. Man they're big ... loved them out on this ride I did yesterday.
I'm running 2.5 psi in them (when I left the house that is) & they rode so smooth, soaked all the rocks & bumps. For my type of rid'in I think these are gonna be awesome !! :cheer:
ANYWAY ... Did the Jacob City Loop - Soldier Creek area ride with a couple friends yesterday .... one guy rides a Kawi Brute Force 750 and the other guy rides a Can-Am 800 XXC.
The Jacob City area is about 70 or 80 miles South of my home and in the "Five Mile Pass" recreation area. It was a perfect day for rid'in, sunny, cool, no bugs, only saw a couple other people, the fall colors were amazing, but it was dusty. We need some moisture to keep the dust down ... but ya know what they say, "Careful what ya wish for !" ...
We did a little over 44 miles according to my GPS. We also rode from about 5200 ft to a little over 9300 ft .... and then back down. Because a gate was closed, we had to ride thru the town of Ophir. It's an old mining town with a ton of history ... and people still live there ....
When we got up into the mountains, you could see a lot of old mines, some of which are still active. Man, them old boys must've wanted the silver & gold pretty bad to work that rock with picks & shovels .... and Dyno-mite ...
Here's a short vid of the days ride ... Hope You Enjoy it ... and remember, change the video quality to 1080p !!

04 Yamaha Beartracker No electric start, No neutral/reverse lights, only starts with screwdriver to both relay terminalsBy PeteSaracen
Im fixing up a beartracker 250. Starts right up with screwdriver to both solenoid terminals and pull start. Doesnt start at all with electric start button. Neutral light and reverse light come on when the atv is running but when it is off and the key is turned to on position, no lights come on. When button is pressed to start, nothing happens. No click in solenoid, nothing. Not too experienced with the electrical components but I have tested a few things. The Front stop switch assembly cable was broken so I replaced that hoping it would fix my electrical problem to the key bevel but still nothing.

So I have a 2001 Kawasaki prairie 300 I could not find tough country snow plow... it's a older plow too boot... so I made the plow mount and updated the plow with some skids.
Mount plate is 1/4 steel plate and so are the pin points
The skids are off a moose plow. I got some plumbing black pipe for holders to weld to the blade and braced it with pieces left over from the plow mount 1/4 steel...
1/4 plate cost $45
Skids cost $24
U bolts and other hardware where $20
I got the blade free
Hi all, I was gifted this Bayou but she's been sitting quite some time. It won't crank using the factory start button but when I jumper the starter solenoid it cranks but there is no spark. The key has power coming in on the white wire and when turned on supplies power to the brown wire coming out.
I guess I should start with testing the pickup? I heard I may be able to jumper the wires coming from the pickup with an LED bulb and it will flash? I noticed in the manual that it should have around 110 ohms resistance so I'll check that as well. One thing I noticed was that the starter circuit relay has power on one of the black wires with the key on- this doesn't seem normal as I'm assuming the black wires are grounds? I think one of them comes from the start switch, travels through the starter circuit relay and then grounds the starter relay?
Mine is a 1991 so it has the 7 wire CDI (ignitor) and a 2 yellow wire alternator ( as opposed to the later 3 wire type ) with another 2 wires for the source coils (black & red wires ). The pickup wires are blue and black I do believe. Any help appreciated and yes I will test the pickup ASAP.
I'm trying to understand how the system works and I don't understand what the yellow / red wire from the kill switch does- I assume it gets grounded when the kill switch is "on" and therefore grounds the CDI so it can't activate the ignition coil? I noticed in the diagram that that yellow / red wire looks like it may be grounded by the ignition key switch when in the "off" position?
I also don't have 12v power at any of the wires going into the CDI- doesn't the CDI need to be powered? I also read on this forum that someone used a GM HEI module in place of the factory CDI just to test it for spark- does anyone have any info on that?
I hope I'm not missing something simple!
Here is a link to the diagram for my bike (which was posted by another user): https://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/topic/13742-1988-bayou-220-lost-spark/?tab=comments#comment-101193
Any help appreciated!
Headlights on my Outlander 570 are junk. Would like to upgrade to a light bar. What is the max size (wattage) that it can handle?
Can I just split into the high beam wire for an install. I see YouTube videos of a separate switch that hooks up straight to the battery, but wouldn't that drain the battery if the machine is off and lights cold be left on by accident.
I'd like to hang it from the front rack as I have a basket installed on the rack that I would like to keep there. If anyone has done this, please send a picture!
