    Ok, after a slight distraction I finally got back to working on the quad. I did as suggested and started testing the ohms on the stator and pick up coils. Everything was checking out good (within the expected reading from the manual). I did notice I had the ‘ol random wire (red wire) that didn’t seam to go anywhere. After a little digging I found that It was part of the wire grouping that went to the coil. After unwrapping an abundance of tape I found where the failed “repair” was made. I reconnected the wire and bam I have spark. After putting everything back together I dialed in the carb and this quad is back up and running! Big shout out to Frank for pointing me in the right direction. Huge help man, thank you!

    I noticed the butt splice in the photo is also showing signs of burning out. Clear indication of an overload. Is there an inline fuse with this kit? The photo does not show one. Any connection directly to the battery needs an inline fuse. It is dangerous not to have that, in the event of a short, that wire will get red hot and arc out. Wire gauge appears to be correct (14 gauge) for a 100 watt kit, so you seem to have an overload condition. Mike

    Lots of OHV areas here in California, most forget California is still mostly Forest, or farm land. I found a great place to find new areas to ride is the forest service website. Theyseem to have made a real effort in opening up new areas. The Forrest service also provides some good maps you can use with a Phone or GPS enabled tablet. The Application for the maps is called Avenza.. I save all my rides and export to google earth. and no I don't work for Avenza or the forest service. I did spend years calling the forest service before heading to a new area only to get a un-clear answers.

    Spent the weekend at Anthracite Outdoor Adventure area and camped at the Trailhead Campground. This campground is next to the trails so you can just ride over to the trails. AOAA has about 311 miles of trails on 6,500 acres of land. All kind of terrain depending on what you like.

    Well, thank you very much for the great welcome to both. I will definitely get back to ask questions as I progress in the overhaul. I promise to post pictures of the final result too! thanks again federico

    Engine off and tester on ohms, phase to phase you should get a reading. Somewhere in the 100’s maybe, It’s in the manual. Test each wire to wire and see what you get. Do this with the pick up coil also. I like to test both ways. One when the bike is ice cold. Second is when the engine is hot. Most of the time stators go bad and you don’t have the option of testing while hot because you have no spark. The acceptable range will be listed in the manual.

    Yep. Thanks for the reminder. This one will just buy me some time. Now that I know the thing runs I feel better about ordering some parts for it to get it back into great condition.

    Some of these fill plug holes are hard to get to and fill, so I like filling through the vent tube with the fill plug out and watch for a trickle of fluid out the fill plug when full.

    I bought the Kimpex exhaust for mine. Found it on ebay for $180 brand new. Don't know if they still make them. I had a soup can on mine for a LONG time. haha, finally cut the spark arrestor off but it was too loud. Ended up using it on my Quadrunner 250 with a plate welded over the hole and a piece of 1" pipe welded to the center. Works well!

    Ok well got the puller and new chain and gasket Saturday. Took the old chain out and laid it next to new one and you can defently see it was stretched. Put new one on and all back together. Made sure timing was good. It fired right up and ran smooth. Let it idle for a little bit no leaks or anything. Took it out for a small ride and runs better then before for sure. Thanks for your help Frank.

    Are you sure the nut Holding it to the shaft is tight enough?. The key shouldn't shear if all is tight so there is no pressure on it. If loose it can work on the key and eventually shear it. It would take a pretty hard kick back to make it shear a key on a tight assembly, and it wouldn't run on q new key unless timing was reset if timing slipped .

    I would double check that the choke is adjusted correctly and the plunger isn't stuck. Check the pilot screw adjustment, should be 2 turns out from lightly seated. Test the needle and seat, should be able to hold 5 psi.

    I have an ultrasonic cleaner, they work really well. However, Frank is correct, you must do the heavy cleaning first before using the ultrasonic. I would say they are mostly not necessary for a 1 off carb cleaning.

    I've used this shop many times, they're always great to deal with. Often times it's cheaper to have them make a power steering or oil cooler hose than buy a new one, and they use arctic grade hose that I've never had fail. This was the first time I've had them repair a brake hose. I had them add 1 inch of hose so it wouldn't rub like the old one did.

    Another thing, I cannot find a vin. It just has the KLF 300c Made in USA sticker.
  24. 1 point
    I’m confused. You did all this work and your not getting a charge? That’s strange, what kind of testing on the charging system are you doing? Have you checked the rectifier/regulator ? First off I would locate the vin# and do a check this way you can find the exact year. Tons of web sites to check for free. Honestly I would put a new stator/pick up coil in. I use a brand called Caltric on eBay or amazon. About $75 bucks. They have always fit and worked well. You should also check that everything is turning inside the engine in order to produce current at the coil. When the cover is off spin the engine and make sure rotation is good.

    Take a piece of a bicycle brake cable and separate the strands and use one of the strands. It works great. Or go on amazon and they have a small kit that has all sorts of small cleaning tips for that work. Just look up a carburetor cleaning tool. As far as the shifter goes I would have a welder make up some linkage and do some custom work. BUT YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT ALL ELECTRICAL ITEMS ON THE ENGINE BEFORE YOU WELD ON THE FRAME! you will do damage to the stator coil and rectifier. The starter will come out it’s going to take some finesse. Look on YouTube and search starter removal on an atc 200 Honda and see what comes up.

    yep battery plug and stator ok wasn't aware regulator could effect spark but its cheap enough to change any way will let you know thanks for help

    I watched a few minutes of the fight. I could not believe the outcome. He looked out gunned but just goes to show you that if you land a few in the right places the mighty can fall!

    Well my prep was to purchase a 1989 Big Bear for $250. Now I am going over the electrical to get the bike running as it has no spark, then I will give the bike a good once over to make sure the brakes/suspension/drivetrain is in good shape!

    I do enjoy it. But I'm working 7/12's right now and there is no time to be had. That's one of the reasons I wanted to go with a mechanic. I've looked on Amazon and Ebay for parts I need and I just don't see them. The mechanic told me they don't even make new parts for most of my bike. Is that even true? Can you tell me where to find new parts? And the reason I joined here was to be able to talk to ppl like you. So yes... I want to get this thing going. I'd at least like to get all the parts ordered that way when I get laid off I can do it.

    That is the secondary that you ordered. Hopefully that’s the problem. I think it is but I’ve been wrong before. I’m surprised that 1200 rpm is the norm. I would have figured 1000 max.

    I agree with @Frank Angerano , that's too expensive for a brake job and switch. You can probably do it yourself. Check out some of the videos on youtube as mentioned.

    Welcome to Quadcrazy, have you checked the clutch? There are plates and springs that over time or over abuse wear out. May need an adjustment or replacement parts As far as the hard shift goes I would ask if the rpms are up? Maybe lower the idle and see if that changes anything Check out the repair manual and you will find exactly what’s involved inside the manual in order to repair.

    I've just recently switched to the Erikson ATV e-strap kit: http://www.ericksonmfg.com/product/atv-wheel-chock-and-tie-down-strap-kit/ I like it... no need to compress your suspension but holds the atv very securely and doesn't bounce slack into it.

    Yamaha Grizzly 700 Takes on May Mud! Its crazy where these Yamaha grizzly 700 can take us in little over a hour or mudding time! May is here and its time to see what the may mud has to offer the grizzly 700! Surprisingly the Yamaha Grizzly 700 never got stuck that many times in the may mud but hey, we never really went out to get stuck! It was cool to see what the May Mud had to offer the yammies. Again I would like https://myneighbourhoodnl.com/ for the supply of rags they gave us! I would highly recommend checking them out if you need any rags its going to a good cause! Few cool things are coming together for myself and Jon in may! Gonna be a pretty cool partner joining in with us pretty soon! Make sure to follow the Yamaha grizzly 700 on instagram! instagram.com/offroad.dan instagram.com/muddymillz

    Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor. In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber. Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut. If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video. Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.

    For an old ATV i go into Honda's,, best engines. for newer ATV, since they now have power steering,, and too much electronic in it,, i prefer not to take position. but i like the Can-Am look. and comfy.

    Casey Martz it really depends if you are going with an older quad or something new. In todays world the atvs/ utvs are going for insane amount of miles as compared to some of the old school bikes. in my opinion anything with a Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, or Kawasaki badge on them are good bikes they have been around a long time and build quality. as for the old school. the older Hondas are great bikes. I have a 15 year old Yamaha Kodiak I love it. 12000 kms on it and works great. anything you buy maintenance is the key. all the best with your search

    I'm new to the ATV scene for sure. Was too poor growing up to afford one. A guy down the road had a little Kawasaki '85 185 for sale, wanted 700. Talked him down to 540 and off I went. I have an ATC200s I've been working on, off and on, for a while now. So the basics I'm aware of. I groomed the quad doing the usual maintenance you would need to do to expect a longer lifespan: Change air filter, spark plug, oil, alignment,battery. There is a small oil leak somewhere. Probably going to give the engine a good scrubbing so I can identify where it's coming from. I went down to the pipeline with my kiddos and we had a blast. That's really what I got it for, to have fun with the kids. I'm with you on the older bikes. Drop ~500 bucks, spend about ~100 cleaning it up, and you have a bike that will last a long time.
