2003 Arctic Cat 400 4x4 - Will Not Move

Recommended Posts

My atv starts with the first pull every time and idles good but when I give it some throttle, a raddling noise happens and the atv doesnt want to move. If I give it more throttle and the rpm are very high, the atv moves forward a little bit. Not sure what to do. Thanks for looking

could be a stretched drive belt (pray it is) or clutch is acting up ... there might be an adjuster to tighten the belt some ... rear of the motor you might see a nut with a slot inside, loosen the nut and you can adjust the slot left and right, just cant remember what way is more or less slack, youll find out easily enough ...

      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.

      I have a 2018 Sportsman 450 HO and from time-to-time I hear what sounds like exhaust noise through the cowl near the gas tank.  Could it be an exhaust leak or am I hearing something vibrating?

      Took a little ride around the farm today. It was good to get away from the TV, Politicians, and all around bad news. Only an hour or two, but helped recharge me. This is in Western KY on our farm. About 85 degrees today here. I will still get you guys a run down in the newer ohv and atv parks here in this end of the state. But not today I'm thinking of heading back out for a night ride later.

      Good Morning All!,
      After a significant amount of reading and tinkering, I'm stumped.  We have a pair of Arctic Cat DVX 90s (4-stroke), and one of them runs very rich at wide open throttle.  I've cleaned the carb (which was installed new  last year), verified the main jet (80) to be per the original spec, installed a new air filter, tried a hotter spark plug (CR6HSA), and adjusted the valves (tightened a modest 0.0005" but improved starting).  The hotter spark plug may have help just a bit, but not appreciably.
      Just for fun, I swapped the CDI between machines, and that didn't help either.
      Fouling plugs very quickly, but not to the point the machine will not run or start.  [black instantly]
      Logically, I assume I'm revving out, but the other machine doesn't "stumble/blubber" anything like this one.
      Should I try a smaller main jet?
      Any ideas you guys may have would be much appreciated.
      Thanks in advance everyone.

      I have a 2003 LTZ 400 that i bought a few days ago. The quad was running fine until last night. I let my brother ride it down the street and back and i didnt notice anything etong with bike. Then my neighbors friend came over and said "can i ride it?" I said "sure" so he ripped it down the road all fine and when he got back it died right in front of us. My brother said it was dieing on him also. He also said that he wasnt using the clutch to shift. I told him he was an idiot. Im throwing that in there incase that caused a problem as well. But today i go to check it to make sure its getting fuel which it is and replaced the spark plug incase it wasnt getting spark but it is. So i started it and it was having a problem starting then i got started and was reving at idle high. So i took it around the block and it died on me a little bit down, so i try to restart it and it started so i kicked it into 1st and it kinda launched on me and started going with the clutch all the way in. Then it died right after and wasnt running right during that process and was idleing all over the place and just died and now i cant get it started it again. Before it would start without the choke or priming it. It would start real quick now i cant figure if it needs to be rejetted or something else. Air filter looks clean also. But any help would be gratelly appreciated!

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
