2009 Can Am 400 Outlander - Stalling Issues

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Can Am 400 Outlander and I went in the mountains for a ride and my bike stalled 3 times. It would start again immediately, then it would let me ride for 1/2 a mile and then stall again. This repeated itself until I got down at a lower level closer to sea level. Then the bike was fine again for the rest of the day. I purchased a service manual but no troubleshooting topic in it to cover this issue.

Has anyone else had this sort of problem with this model bike. I hunt and fish that area and I don't need that aggrevation. So if I cant find a solution then the bike gotta go.

Hope someone can help me. Either post a solution here or email me at [email protected].

from what i understand, if its got a carb, rejet and if its efi, get a programmer to play with the mixture. i think there has been a similar post here too. someone will jump in im sure ...

I wish it were a carburetor but its efi and that makes it a nuisance because now I have to fool around with dealers.

I do not like these newer electronic they are putting in bikes. Was a lot simpler when it was a carb.

I emailed Bombardier and they did reply but not with a negative email. Basically, all they said was take it to your local dealer. Now these people need to understand not everyone that purchase these products have a local dealer to go to. My nearest dealer is over 3 hours away and they are only opened mon to Friday and I work during the week, so where am I gonna get the time to take it there. Not only then do I have to pay their exuberant rates I now have to lose a days work also. I have been repairing ATVs now for over 20 years and ive never had this issue before. Computers are good but in this case they are a pain in the butt. I cant even remove "maintenance soon" info off without having to take it to a dealer. That sickens me. Something so expensive to do and its so simple if they had it styled in a way that an individual can reset this when he does his own service. Which is in my case and I am sure thousands of other guys do their own service as well. Dealer scam if you ask me. This bike gotta go. Hello Kawi how does your bikes measure up these days?

      I just bought two 1985 TRX250's from my father-in-law. One runs great, the other not so much. The one is having issues with the shifter. The shifter seems to be resting lower than normal. When I press the shifter downward, it just pops back up. Any thougjts as to what the issue might be?

      Hi everyone! I have a 1986 yamaha moto4 200 that's been sitting for a while! Cleaned the carb, replaced engine oil, put fresh gas in it. Got it running and went for a ride! It was running great just a little backfire once in a while! I barely made it home on the way back and now the bike won't run at all since then! It will start if I give a little bit of throttle but dies instantly as soon as I let go off the throttle! And even if I try to rev it up it'll sound like its not getting enough gas.. it revs up a couple hundred rpm's and backfires through the carb.. it almost sounds as if I was trying to take off from zero in 5th gear! Nothing is seized though! I dissasembled the head and the piston and cylinder are fine! Rebuilt the carb, replaced the ignition source coil.. I don't know what to do anymore.. compression test shows 90 psi Specs are 128 psi but i'm not sure if I trust my compression tester.. any ideas? Thanks!!

      Hi everyone. New to the forum!
      Hers is my issue.
      I have a Suzuki LT80 (Not sure what year-I think it is 2002) and it will not start. I was told the starter is new and it has a new battery. I checked the battery and it reads 12.5V. When I hit the start button all I get is a click in the black 4 prong relay. I also unplugged it and jumped the 2 big wires but all it does is spark and get hot. It also gets hot if I keep pushing the start button. I also unplugged the white plug by the gas tank, hooked a wire to it and tried a battery charger...same thing...wires get hot. Then I removed the starter and used the battery charger on it. I hooked the black to the starter casing and the red to the hot lead on the starter...all it did was spark and make the battery charger hum louder. Is the starter bad? Do I need a relay? Both? I also know about the red button under the plastic. It wasn't even tripping so I bypassed it just to try what I could. I'm at a loss. I just want it to run for my son to ride. If anyone can help please do so. Thanks in advance!

      I recently purchased a 2005 Suzuki LTZ 400, for the first few days it ran like a champ but now when it gets hot, no matter what you do, it will stall out when you stop. Even going from 2nd or 3rd gear it still stalls out. It still runs perfect, it just stalls when I hit the breaks (hard or soft). I don't know much about quads so I could use some help.

      Hey everyone, new guy from the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. My older brother gave me his 1987 Suzuki LTF 230 and it needs a little work. I hope I can find the answers here.

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      Hello i have a linhai 300 of the 2004+- era. I had a cluch problem so we changed it. After changing it has a hard time to start going. When you pop it into gear and press the gas it barely drives but when it starts going about 20km/h it start driving well the acceleration is normal and everything do you have any idea of what could be the problem

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.
