    When I clean a pickeral I make the following cuts. * angled but verticle from belly to behind head. * from behind head to rear dorsal with knife ripe only following the rib cage not cutting through it. * at rear dorsal penetrate knife through along spine exiting in bottom center line tail side of the anus * follow spine to remove fillet to tail. * back to head of fish, feather (follow ribs) our the rib cage. Remove fillet from carcass. * skin the fillet. * at this point laying the fillet flat running you hand along it you will still feel bones. These can be removed by making a VERY narrow V out of the fillet just above and below the lateral line about the length of the rib cage This leaves the fillet looking “forked” at the shoulder to about half way back on the fillet but boneless. ive seen other techniques that seem to be faster where they slab off the side ribs and all lift the first few ribs and pull them out which also removes these additional bones, then skin it. It seems way faster. I tried but seem to rip off too much meat

    Despite report from your tech, I suspect timing. Recent work on three Bears of that era, the cam guides/chain do seem to experience some slack, and wear. Jumping time is easy on one with some miles, but there may still be enough slack that one might visually mistakenly believe the marks are accurate. I fear just tossing external parts at it will get expensive, not to mention possibly futile. May be time to do head/rings/chain and guides-it's gonna be more expensive, but the long term benefits will keep giving return in power and fuel consumption. Are the guides worn down badly? Adjuster working correctly? I am assuming he has pulled the left sidecover off and pulled flywheel/starter clutch to see chain and lower sprocket, guide bottoms, adjuster? What did compression check yield?

    Noticed a pretty big mistake in the video so here is the updated one! Giving a Thumbs up on the video on youtube will help it rank higher on! Along with the watch time! If you liked the video please thumbs it up!

    Yeah a snorkel would be ideal. I was going to get one real soon but my compression ring broke and costed me $660 in parts and labour -YamahaGrizzly

    Went to Potter County, PA and stayed at the campground. You can ride your ATV right from your site to the trails or to the roads. Rode 311 miles and went through three counties and even rode into New York. Weather was good too. Mike

    thanks for replies and pm's. No, haven't found them yet. Pored through the downloads to no avail. Seems the air/oil cooled 400 big bear is hard to find. The link (thanks ajmboy) is for the h20 cooled version, and has key differences. Also, found the 08 660 Grizz, but not the 450. Any help here, anybody? The pm'd links will not open, keep getting "files damaged or corrupted" message. Also having some difficulty with registration on another Grizzly site-keep getting message "you have entered an invalid email account"- despite checking it IS correct x4. Grrrr! Computers will be the death of us all!

    When the chain gets worn, it will often knick the case on the left side under the sidecover, below the timing chain front lower guide. If you see any scrapes there-or a broken aluminum case edge, pretty good bet you found problem. One that has a stretched chain/worn chain glides/malfunctioning adjuster will often run, but have a strange "slapping" sound, particularly at lower revs (where you can actually hear it above the normal engine sound). It will often be very pronounced while fast-cranking (boosting) or with spark plug out, and sounds like a sliding/slapping, not really a knock as such. That's the chain brushing against the case as it spins. I have removed plugs, and completely backed out the valve adjustments, for diagnosis. It relieves the cam from spring pressure, allows starter to spin faster, which accentuates the "slapping chain" noise scraping on the case, as compared to normal cranking with valves adjusted to spec/spark plug in. Hope that helps

    Sounds like a timing issue or possible a faulty CDI. Before that, I would start checking all wiring. When you say speedometer odometer, is it digital and not working or is it an analog display? Do you have a speed sensor?

    Check the battery voltage . . Even a month old battery can fail or be dead if there was a drain on it while sitting .

    Got my 700 all prepped up. I took it for a little spin while there was still significant snow on the ground, but wanted to avoid getting stuck back country especially since I was solo. So I didn't really consider that a "Maiden Run". I take these 2 weeks off for walleye opening, and after I was ready for that I had a day so ramped it up into my F150 and went off to a place I snowshoe in the winter. I've know this area for more than 35 years and I knew I could walk out if I had to without the weather killing me. 2 years ago while snow shoeing and finally with a GPS I confirmed where I was and the stream was in fact a stream I had discovered in my younger days but couldn't confirm it (no GPS tech back in the day). That following spring I put some speckled trout on a string. This winter past I wanted to explore another trail and I did on snowshoe again, I confirmed again by GPS the mount of this stream into a river... the junction I was looking for. This was my target for my maiden run. The first thing I noticed, beside there being no snow is that the experience from snowshoe to quad was vastly different. I found the difference between truck and snowshoe to be mind boggling... in the truck there are different tangibles. landscape is different you are worried about trees encroaching the trail, the narrowness. On snowshoes it was the opposite, you noticed much smaller things due to the speed of travel, shapes of trees, trees rubbing together, snow drifting down from wind blown snow tipped pines. the quad was somewhere in between. Not the lonesome silence but certainly not the sealed cab of the truck. I could smell the bush I could touch it without the slow space of the snowshoes. …. and the ground I could cover! The exploration factor was through the roof and I am wondering why I waited for middle age to have the versatility of a quad. That day, I not only retraced my track to the stream, but also the track to the junction for which I drove down the sandy embankment and climbed back up with some concern I couldn't (4 wheel dr and diff lock), and 2 other trails I could never get my truck down, which were far to distant to cover mid winter on snowshoes. I ran all the trails, I discovered one bypassed a bog on a pole line, 3 more down to the main river, turning north up a diamond drill road, I climbed a rock strewn hill, football size up to boulder size, I ran 2 more trails all leading to the same pole line, I drove abandoned gravel roads. I did it all … in just 4 hours... snowshoes back country are about 20 min per km (my pace anyways)… I could never do it all, it would be many seasons. Now I can't wait for hunting season, back in the groove after a departure from the sport for some 15-20 years. I found a stocked lake, mid summer when water is low I intend to try and find it. There may not be a trail... I don't know what is around the corner, but for certain I would need a partner for that excursion. The quad, it ran like a charm... It hard stopped once, had some minor idling issues on restart, but everything worked. I was so pleased. This being my first small engine ownership (aka toy, lawnmowers don't count) the only thing that concerned me was that the fan was whirling pretty hard... but my car does that then dies down, just like the quad did... so I didn't worry to much. I did do a coolant refresh after buying it, along with all fluids, spark plug, air filter, bulb replacement...etc... The rad does have some damage to the fins …. but it all seemed to work fine and then RPMs of fan died down again... I doesn't seem like anything to worry about. I read a post about teasing the fins straight with a thin/fine blade of some sort but for me … doesn't seem to be an issue. Is there anything I need to lube on the fan? Bottom line, for anyone reading this... who wants to expand their horizons a little... a quad investment is well worth it IMHO. Here is a picture of the junction I've been looking for since my teens....

    OK. .Sounds like you need to pull the carb and clean it . .You likely have a plugged high speed circuit. either the main jet or passages . The idle air screw should be on the side of the carb rather than the bottom. It is definitely too lean under load off idle.. I believe that carb has a diaphragm that opens the main jet . Check it for holes too. Changing the setting on the idle air screw should have large effects on the quad running . .in fact , it turned in too much it should stall. That's why I suspect the screw you were turning was not the idle air .

    When he turned 16 I gave him the Raptor 700R. We had to basically rebuild the fuel pump, install new injector and new battery. Fired right up!! That POS had been in the garage untouched since 09. I hate that thing. He loves it though.

    I have several Suzuki 250 and 300 from the late 80's and 90's called quadrunner or kingquad. They are semi auto, you can find them in 2x4 or 4x4. You also can find them on craigslist usually under $1000 needing work. They are small and slow but are a workhorse, the main tranny has 5 gears and reverse and then there is a 3 speed sub tranny. They will tow alot as long as you have traction, I use them to tow 3000# boats around my yard. They also have independent rear suspension and are shaft drive. The honda 300's are good and simple too.
