2001 Trail Boss 325 popping noise from chain/ sprocket area

Recommended Posts

My wife has a well used 325 Trail Boss and recently she noticed there is a distinct rhythmic clicking or popping noise that sounds like its coming from the chain/ sprocket area. Increases with speed and happens in fwd or reverse.

I jacked up the rear of the quad and rotated the tires and there is no sound when the drivetrain is unloaded. Any suggestions on what this could be or how to troubleshoot? Im new to 4-wheelers, so this might be something pretty simple but I just dont have much experience working with them.

Would appreciate any help or suggestions

My first quess would be bearings ! Is the rear a straight axle ? If it is jack it up and see if ur tires move up &down or Side to side !

Yeah, its a chain drive sold axle. Ill jack it up and see if I there is any movement. The sprockets and chain dont look worn but looks like its adjusted pretty tight. Could it somehow be binding and popping free as it rotates?

      So the kids have a 110cc ATV I'm getting an old polaris xplorer up and running and I've been thinking about what kind of trail I should make. I've got some very wooded acreage and hills with creeks running through it. I'm planning on using a lot of the old logging road for the main trail but what do you normally want to come across when you're riding your ATV? Any suggestions on things I should build in? What would you make sure you had on a trail you built and what would you avoid doing?

      Looking for a guru to help me get the top end back together. I'm stumped!! There seems to be an issue with the removable chain guide on the left hand side. In its current position (which is probably incorrect) there's not enough clearance to get the chain on the sprocket and be able to line up the timing. Does the guide rest on the side or is it supposed to be in the notch underneath? I have a manual, but it doesn't show the correct positioning on that guide. I tried to fit it in the notch, but then the cylinder head doesn't seem to seat properly. Let me know if you need pictures. Any help (and pictures) you able to provide will be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance!!

      It starts and runs Ok but after a while the temp gage lights up and the fan fails to start.  Any suggestions on where to start looking would be helpful.  Thanks

      As the title says, I hear a knocking noise coming from the CVT cover. It’s fairly quiet (never noticed it before now) and the only reason I paid any attention to the cover is because I went to start the quad and heard a clunk (possibly from being between neutral and drive). As far as I’m concerned, it only happens in neutral as I could not hear anything when riding it. It’s quiet enough that I feel it might be just a normal noise. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

      Hey y'all. I have a Yamaha ymf 250 BearTracker. I got this thing for free from people whose son tore it to hell. So it wasn't in great shape to begin with. i.e. no indicator lights (neutral light for instance), no ignition switch or key( wires were twisted together to make it run), get the picture yet? 
      So when it ran it ran rough and I got it running for a year or two, just something fun for the kids to ride on with me on gravels.
      Now just randomly, the start button stopped working so I had to jump the solenoid, then put a temp start switch in. Kill switch would still work. 
      However, the thing has no spark what-so-ever. I've check continuity through the start button and it shows the contact is working, ohmed out the stator, everything is in spec, the reg/rec tested fine as well. I've replaced the solenoid on the off chance it could've been bad and the cdi unit as well, along the the little solenoid relay unit. I'm still getting no spark. The spark plugs is new as well and the coils to the plug have been tested and are good. I've tested and trouble shooted everything I can on this quad and no luck. I watched countless YouTube "no spark" situation videos and it's not helped. Does anyone have any tips or tricks I could try? Would really appreciate some input on this. Thanks!

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!
