I have a Kawasaki Prairie 700 atv[don't know the year]that I just rebuilt the carb on because it was blowing black smoke out the tailpipe.

When I start the engine now, and it was doing it before the carb rebuld, It will run fairly well at low speed but when I try to throttle up the engine it starts to miss and backfire.

There are two codes: 170 and 594. Can anyone tell me what these codes are and what would be the possible cause of this condition. I have ruled out lean fuel mixture and wonder if the codes might have something to do with ignition. Thanks.

      It appears that the Service Manual thread at top of forum is dead as all the links no longer work.  I'm actually looking for service manual for a 2000 KVF300 Prairie that I just picked up.  Does anybody have link to one that they can share, or know where I can find one?  Thanks in advance for any help.

      I need help with wiring on a 1998 (I think, 10th digit of the VIN was W) Bayou. I'm not getting spark, I'm pretty sure it is due to grounds being off because the harness is pretty hacked as far as the electric start and charging system goes. I'm needing a good wiring schematic. I found one online and there are a few things that don't add up on it so I'm skeptical that it is really for my year and model. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      I have a 1996 Kawasaki Mojave KSF250. I have no manual on it and it has a no spark issue. If anyone could give me a hand with this or would possibly have a manual would appreciate it.

      What is the opinion on carb kits? What's one of the better brands of aftermarket? OEM is always preferred but not practical, chinese cheapie is never a good option. 
      Thoughts ?

      so I seem to have some trouble getting my old 85 trail boss to put out a spark. when I first got it it fired just fine but had no compression. After I rebuilt the top end and tried to start it there was no spark so I got on the internet and ordered a used coil that came off of the same bike and it worked and ran good for about two weeks. When I really got the engine going good it would lose power and start to bog down but would quickly recover after a few seconds. Then one day it wouldn't starts and I found that it was not firing at all. Now I`ve put a brand new coil and there is still no spark. Everyone I know seems to think its the cdi box. However when I search on the internet everything points to the stator. Is there a way of testing either one?

      My 2004 polaris scrambler 500 started to backfire ,then i was able ti limp it into the driveway and it died . I tried to start it but when i turned the key there was no power to the rest of the quad . my winch still worked but its wired straight to the battery . I had noticed a sound coming from the sylenoid by the battery during previous times i started the engine but then i would turn off the head light and it would start fine . I replaced that but still no dice with the rest of the system . Anyone else ever had this problem ???

      I got time to ride the ltz400 I just got. I pulled in the clutch lever to stop made the stop but the quad still pulls. There is no slipping when I let out the clutch it grabs and goes shifted easy till I pulled in the garage to park it at idle it didn't want stop moving or change into natural till the motor was turned off. I hope it just needs adjusted or nothing more then a clutch kit. ? Anybody used Tusk clutch kits? I seen Barnett for around 130.00 for the plates.

      My 06 800 Outlander is getting more difficult to shift as it gets older. I have to rev the engine to get it to engage the chosen gear.
      Any suggestions to make it easier?
      Thanks

      Hello ATVers,
      I need help aligning the belt on my Polaris Sportsman CVT. I bought this bike used and noticed a little smoke coming out of CVT exhaust under heavy throttle (smelt like burnt rubber). The previous owner claimed he installed a new belt, but when I opened up cvt cover I noticed belt was out of alignment causing the edge of one side of belt to fray. A small chunk of the belt was missing in one area. I removed one of the washers from behind the secondary pulley to move belt back to alignment with primary pulley. The washer acts like a shim and removing it moved the secondary pulley back about 1/8" which is what it needed. I don't like moving the pulley so close to the back of the plastic cvt case but my alternative (per the service manual) is to loosen the motor mounts and move the motor slightly to change position of the primary pulley and then re-tighten the mounts. Please correct me if this info is wrong. I haven't done this step, but I will do so if someone with more CVT experience could chime in. My son and I went for a ride and he typically drives in HIGH range which I'm told is bad for slow trail riding or driving thru mud. Primarily what we drive on are slow forest trails and very muddy sections. Apparently the combination of him being in HIGH range and the belt already frayed caused it to break. So I ordered an EPI sever duty cvt belt and a clutch kit since this bike's cvt has never been serviced. I plan on installing bigger tires for mud, so I ordered a kit designed for this type of riding. Any advice on how to adjust belt tension and alignment would greatly be appreciated. I don't wanna blow another belt. Standard OEM belt is $70 and this severe duty belt is $100!! They are not cheap.
