    • 2000 Yamaha Grizzly YFM600FWA No Spark Swap CDI
      Have a 2000 Yamaha Grizzly YFM600FWA with no spark.  Checked the troubleshooting chart, and all checks were within specs.  CDI has part # 5GT-00  F8T36071.  Friend has a 1998 Grizzly 600 but his CDI part # is 4WV-00  F8t34671.  Are they the same?  Thinking about taking my CDI and put it on his ATV and find out if it works, but don't want to damage something if not interchangeable.  Thanks

      Just got the above mentioned quadrunner. First one ever. Always been a small engine tinkerer but figured I'd need a little help on this one.

    • 2005 Suzuki King Quad 700 - Fan Replacement
      The saga of the fan continues. The Pin attempt in the fan shaft failed.  I then moved on to trying to weld the fan hub to the fan shaft.  I took it for a run the weld broke.  Now it was truly F'ed.  To recap the dealer price, they want $400 + CND for a replacement fan assembly. I searched all sorts of after market places and no one carried one.  Ebay had some used ones but they were $120 USD + Conversion rate for something as old as what I have.  I went to Amazon and eventually settled on this.   amazon link   What I found... and was amazed... was that the fan mounted to the Suzuki fan assembly bracket.  I was prepared to manufacture my own mount conversions...  It also came with "Harpoon mounts" (nylon zip tie like things that go straight through the rad.   Anyways it mounted to the original bracket. It fit perfectly.  Cut the electrical plug off replaced it with the Suzuki... all good.  Let the quad heat up, thermo coupler kicked in the fan circuit, polarity was right... all was good....  Fan is under the circuit fuse rating.     so I finally have a solid fan solution.  $34 CND vs $400+ CND
    • 1994 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x4 Electric Start Problems
      I have a 1994 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x4. The electric start button worked fine when i was out hunting in the early hours of Sunday but in the evening all i was getting was a click click click when i pushed the starter button. Pull starting, it fires up no problem. I removed the battery and one of the cells was half empty so i topped it up and charged. Still goes click after i put the battery back in it. Posts are clean too. I heard that the starter brushes can be replaced. Thanx for the help guys. Gary

      Summer days here in the northern part of the state don't last that long! Right now is perfect riding conditions with cooler nights slowly creeping in. 
        My son and I will be going up this weekend but its been nearly 2 months since our last trip up and after our next trip it could be quite some time before he'll be able to get more time off work. 
        If you know anyone that might like a few days out up north to do a trip to ride and camp please get in touch real soon! Thanks Steve

      Yamaha kodiak 1993 Fwd carb issues
      just recently bought the new carb from eBay and installed it, used the same pilot jet size as the old carb, BUT used the fuel air mixture screw guidelines iv seen online, 2 1/2 turns out from seated- pulled spark plug out and tested it on metal and it Sparks as well the ignition switch on off works no spark, 
      cant get any type of ignition from this carb, no pops or anything, it’s sounds like attempting to start a quad on the kill switch, fuel is new, I played with choke, I did notice the fuel air mixture screw on old carb was unscrews like 6 turns but that can’t be right, I got more sounds out the old carb attempting to start...
      any feed back helps ! Thanks !

      Hey, I already posted that in the Yamaha forum, and did not get a response. So, I posted so anyone with a water cooled ATV could see it.
