  2. Looking for help on wiring up stock wiring harness specifically for a '88 Honda TRX 300 If anyone could drop a link or send me a PM it would be much appreciated
  3. Def good to do as @spock58 mentioned. Reason I'm asking about damp conditions is my old fourtrax used to lose spark when it was damp. Turned out my cdi outer casing was separating from the epoxy fill and letting moisture in. If it dried out it had spark again.
  4. Start with the simple stuff: pull apart any connectors you find, check for corrosion, spray WD40 in them, remove plug cap & cut back the wire a bit for starters.
  5. Just an update... I have my compression back suddenly. Don't know how as i haven't touched the bike in over a week?!? Oh well lol. Now though i have no spark. What are the notorious things on these bayous that fail?
  6. Might check with Laval, seems he has some experience with Yamaha and their reverse.
  7. Your going to need a wheel puller with long arms. Check out amazon they have a few different types. You may have to get the type that has hooks to go into the holes on the drum or take a few large hose clamps and put them around the drum, tighten good and use a standard type long arm puller.
  8. $30 a gal ???? Yep thank god for peak or prestone!! Fuel injectors yes def a good point, it all depends on how long it soaked and if it was fresh or salt water.
  9. Your very welcome, a lot of the cooling systems work that way. If you get stuck let me know we will go deeper.
  10. Make and model are Arctic Cat 2004 500 BTX with the Suzuki motor. Kawiherder, aka Interceptor398 are from my sled site and collection and I have used them in more than a few places. Your reply is the starting place I was hoping for and I thank you for that!!
  11. Soooooooo believe it or not the guy who bought my Mojave reached out to me and said that his son loves the bike and now he wants to ride! Asked me if I had a bike for him to learn an easy rider type atv. You guys know I love that bear tracker but i let it go only because it went to the right person. So he shows up and has a quad in the back of the truck. He said its a Baja and has no need for it to make him an offer. Said it didn't run and it was small for him and it had a clutch. I had no need for it but wound up giving him $50 off the price of the bear tracker and threw it in the garage. I've heard of Baja but never seen one. Turns out it has a Suzuki engine on it and its a 330cc. Im not familiar with it at all. It had no spark but does now due to a wiring fault i found, compression is good and it cranks, carb and gas stink to high heaven of varnish but i have no time to go any deeper right now. Just curious on any background on the Baja's from anyone? Im sure il have it fired up right after the new year but its a strange looking thing.
  12. Just the pic, it’s not cracked.....yet. Whoops I’ve already smacked on it a bit with 3lb sledge. I also tried heating around the axle a little bit. I tried using a small pry bar to pry around the edges. The edge of the backing plate is looking a little rough now though from prying against it. Hope I didn’t ruin it. Parts diagram list a big O ring that is supposed to go between the drum and the backing plate. If there was one on this bike, it is long gone as I don’t see any remains of one.
  13. I have faith in it. I'm more worried about the fuel injection. Anyone know what the antifreeze is? I'm sure its a regular cheap grade stuff I can get at wally world for cheap. Polaris stuff is $30/gal!?!?
  14. Hey brian which shaft are you referring to??? Post a pic or two.
  15. Spray it good with penetration oil and use a rubber mallet and tap it a few times all around. That drum looks cracked or is it the pics? If you plan on using any heat here you have to be super careful here not to melt a seal.
  16. Whats up @Kawiherder what year make and model? Im assuming Kawasaki by your name. That light comes on from a sensor in the top of the cylinder head that acts independently from the fan. If its water cooled then there is a sensor on the right side of the lower portion of the radiator. Take the two wires off that sensor and jump them together. If the fan comes on then the sensor is bad. If the fan does not come on then the power going to that sensor needs to be checked. Thats done by using a simple test light or tester. One of the wires on the sensor should have 12V power on it. If not then start tracing that wire back to its source, maybe fuse or there are inline circuit breakers on the wire to the fan on some models. Now if you have power at the sensor and when you jump the two wires on the sensor and the fan does not come on then it could be a bad ground on the sensor or a bad fan so you have to start looking at the fan itself and the wires coming off of it. All of the above testing needs to be done with the key on.
  17. Slowly getting back to action. Took another look at brake assembly and watched a couple YouTube videos on the subject. I can not get the brake drum off. What am I missing? Should it be able to spin around on the axle, or does it only go on in a certain position. I can’t get behind it well enough to get a good hit on it with a bar or anything. What’s the trick?
  18. 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
  19. Last week
  20. I am looking at a 90cc Arctic cat 90cc not sure what year right off hand . The shaft broke off right outside the motor . Can anyone help me ? What do I need to do to fix it ? Do you have any pictures or videos ? Let me know ?
  21. I used all methods, flame, heat, buffing etc. None of which held up very well. I did however water send and send to a auto body shop where they added a flex agent into the paint and sprayed them and the finished product was insane.
  22. I'm going to have to try that. @Frank Angerano did you use propane or other torch/heat. Or a heat gun? I saw this video where they are using a torch: Here's a guy using rubbing compound...
  23. I haven't heard anything negative, outside of stiff suspension. check out these posts from @mav0016 Argo makes those 6 and 8 wheel machines and I think only started with ATVs over the past few years.
  24. I cant see it because i only use my phone but im going to start using my laptop when I'm home.
