I just bought this quad having an issue with the valve for the fuel. When I got the quad I could not turn the valve at all. I take it apart when it's turned to the on position or reserve I get no fuel The only way I can get you a lot of it is the vacuum or remove the spring on the diaphragm. If I remove the spring fuel flows freely matter what the setting is. Can this be rebuilt or is put together wrong

You have a vacuum operated fuel valve. The diaphragm opens up the fuel valve when it gets suck from the carb. No suck: it stops fuel delivery. Its meant to be automatic shutoff when the machine is not running. The spring operates a poppet shutoff valve. Removing the spring doesnt close the poppet allowing fuel to flow. The PRI position actually bypasses all this and feeds fuel directly.

Your problem might be not getting suck from the carb or the poppet is stuck closed.

I dont like these because the diaphragm can leak and you end up sucking fuel into the carb causing an overly rich condition. Ive replaced those on my machines with a standard ON OFF RES valves.

Ive never seen a rebuild kit for them. You can look around. Otherwise get the standard valve, or put it together again and make sure the poppet works right. Also you can just run it in PRI, always on position.

Thanks for your help I'll look at it again. I probably will end up going just for the normal shut off valve on it

      I have a gentleman that asked me to service his bayou for him.  I have always wondered what oil should be used in atv engines?  Pros?  Cons?  What weight should be used in what type of weather?  Is there one kind that I could bulk buy and safely used in any quad I worked on or owned?  What about performance?  Engine Life?  This has always been a 🤔🤔🤔 area for me with quads as far as why you would use one type of oil over another....
      Thanks!

      After looking at the wire diagram I saw the blue w/black stripe wire is coming from the neutral and reverse lights looking for ground thru the neutral and reverse switches. If it finds ground, the lights come on. The same wire also comes from the neutral relay looking for ground at the same neutral and reverse switches. So it was easy to trick the relay into thinking the engine is in neutral all the time without having the light on all the time. Just cut the blue w/black wire at the relay and ground it. Easy
      Sorry the pics aren't better




      Now it starts in any gear and indicator lights work as they should.

      I think my rear brakes are stuck.  Is these parts in the right position?  Any idea how I repair?  I have to give it more gas to go and I can't push it when it's in neutral.

      Friend of mine picked up an LT80 that needs some work. The manufacture date is 11/1986
      The fuel and vacuum lines for the carb were all disconnected. I picked up a new card and was hoping someone on here has a photo or knows how the lines are hooked up
      Thanks in advance

      I was reading another forum recently about fuel leaks and possibility of fire happening. Reminded me of an incident I had a few years ago while working at a Can Am dealership. The quad was a stolen & recovered Outlander 650 that had been tampered with. These quads have an electronic safety system, similar to their DESS system on the sleds. You cannot bypass the key switch and get spark without a computer with factory software. Anyway, I was trying to determine what was damaged since the thief had attempted to hot wire various electronic parts. I got all the extra wires removed and things looked back to stock. Pulled the spark plugs and was going to check for ignition and if the starter still worked. Well, they both worked alright and guess what - the cylinder was flooded with fuel! Instant flames with gas spraying all over...great!! I managed to use my hands to put out the fire, good thing I had on gloves (but choked they were ruined of course, haha). Seems it's possible to flood an engine with efi when you put power straight to the injectors, doh! As in much of life, you cannot take things for granted (I'd only seen carbs flood like that). And even though it had spark, the quad still needed a new ECM to run - that part alone was $1200. So lets hear your stories, crazy stuff happens every day I'm sure.

      Hi, does anyone know where to find the timing marks on the camshaft and how to orient them? I found the line on the crank and lined it up with the arrow on the case, but the only marks I can see on the cam are on the very end where the black plastic cap is. Are these the timing marks and if so how do you line them up?
