01 May 2013 Spring Mountain Ride

Recommended Posts

Decided to head up to the mountains and see if the snow is melting much ... it was 21 degs F when I got to the staging area, the wind was howl'in & it was try'in to snow :eek:

Up higher it was snow'in. So I rode for a ways and then turned around and went to some lower elevations and enjoyed some dirt, snow & mud rid'in. :cheer:

What a GREAT FREAK'IN DAY !! :woot:

Hope you enjoy the video & make sure you watch it in 1080P ... :bow:

Why THANK YOU Quad Nutty Guy !! :notworthy:

Ours is melting too, but we still have about 6 ft on top so it'll be a while until we get up there to ride ... however, I do plan on going as high as I can next time I go. It was so cold with the wind & I hadn't planned on that so I didn't have my balaclava to wear under my helmet & the cold air scream'in thru my motocross helmet just flat froze my bald skull !! :coneheadc: ... :smilielol5c:

We've been gett'in storms up high same as you ... and more next week !!

Glad you enjoyed the vid & THANKS for watch'in Big Guy !! :seeyac:

Why, Thank You Wylde Guy ... THANK YOU VERY MUCH !! :notworthy:

Well, I did have my Gore-Tex rain suit on, so no worries about gett'in wet or to cold ... besides, I'm kind of a big kid at heart & it's pretty difficult not splash'in around in every puddle of water I see ... SAVVY !!?? :wink:

And yeah, if the water is too deep, the "Brickwall" affect can send a guy over the handlebars ... :shocked:

Again, Glad you enjoyed the video & THANKS for watch'in too !! :cheers2c:

      Hi all,

      I picked up this quad after the previous owner couldn't get it going.

      The issue is that I can't get it to fire at idle or at all.

      I've...

      - replaced plug. Decent blue spark. Also tested with spark tester inline.
      - rebuilt the carb. PO had already bypassed vacuum lines from petcock. There's fuel at the cylinder
      - Checked compression with new gauge. reads 190 psi
      - cleaned all contacts I could access.
      - am currently jumping with car battery. Solenoid jumpered.
      - checked cam timing at TDC and adjusted valve lash
      - put gas directly into cylinder to see if it will fire at least momentarily

      Motor turns over well. Plug gets wet. 

      Motor may fire once or twice but smokes through exhaust a bit as if it's trying to fire or combusting.

      This leads me to suspect timing. As mentioned I checked the flywheel mark versus cam marks. Perhaps someone has been in there before because I can't find a 'T' on the flywheel but there is a very visible paint mark which aligns with TDC position on piston. Possibly a slipped flywheel/woodruff?

      Is it possible that if it had seen previous repairs, that the timing could still be off? I'm reluctant to dig into the flywheel/stator area if there's something else I could have missed but all signs point me to that area. Would a bad CDI cause spark timing to be off?

      Anywhere else to diagnose incorrect spark timing?


      I've scoured these forums and elsewhere but I'm posting just in case there's something I've overlooked up until now.

      Thanks very much for reading!

      New to the site and I'm looking for some places to (LEGALLY) ride. I know a few places not too far from me but getting caught and over 1k in fines and criminal trespassing charges isn't on the top of my list.

      Well, it overheated then started blowing white smoke!!
      I have it torn down & the cylinder appears to be warped. Going to have the head checked out next but in the meanwhile... Does anyone have the torque sequence/specs for the head bolts??
      TIA

      Hey All,
      Looking for some recommendations on an ATV for my Daughters-in-law to ride when they visit with my sons. We ride mostly woods trails. It needs to be fairly easy to ride, automatic is't necessary but shifting should be forgiving and it needs to be under $2000. I have a Banshee and a Polaris Sportsman 500HO now.
      One DIL is tiny, 5' and about 100lbs, the other is about 5'8" and 130lbs. I'm concerned that steering on the Sportsman may require too much upper body strength and the Banshee is definitely not a beginner's ride.
      I'm thinking about a Warrior (may be under powered) or a Honda 400EX but I'd love to hear what others might suggest?
      Thanks!

      Went for a ride at Murdock Basin, which is on the South side of the Uinta Mountains. I hadn't been there in about 13 yrs & I had forgotten just how rocky this area is. I did ride some trails I hadn't ridden before & even found one short ATV trail.
      I had the "Check Engine - Transmission Signal Fault" message, but the bike never did go into limp mode, so I just kept riding & a little while later, the message disappeared, so all is good. I did check the wires when I got home & put some dielectric grease on the connection thou.
      Over all, it was a great day of rid'in, I hope you enjoy the video.

      Does anyone on here have a 2013 honda rancher? I have had several Honda ranchers in the past but I bought this 2013 rancher and it hits the rev limiter at half throttle. It is very annoying and I was wondering if anyone else's Rancher does this. If this is something from the factory or if I have a problem or not just trying to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated
