    Modern ATV's remind me of modern vehicles. My wife's 2015 Mustang was having power loss at highway speed but would take off normal. 2 days of troubleshooting, no codes thrown, settled on it being a low pressure fuel pump and resigned to taking it to the dealer. Noticed last night brake lights stayed on. So I shimmed the brake light switch and fixed the power loss...guess it was triggering pseudo limp mode. I bring that up to say....modern ATV's are too darn complicated and hard to troubleshoot.

    Okay have an old lakota, died while riding several years back ( early 1500s or so!). Just trying to revive the dead again, recoil starter seems dead. Hooked a car battery up half arsed and it did turn over although sloooowwwwwwllllllllyyyyyyyy! When it died thought there was no spark. So any ideas on best steps to try and start finding the problems? Put some penetrating oil in cylinder to help loosen it up.

    Unless the 400ex is different from other Hondas, it shouldn't start in gear. All the ones I know all have a neutral safety switch to prevent in gear starting.

    On the topic of parts, it really depends on what I need. Most anything like a CDI, reg/rect, stator, etc I'll go to ebay first and look for 2nd hand OEM. Any consumable parts like brake and throttle cable, bulbs, etc I'll look all over. Usually start at Amazon because I'm lazy. For any important hard parts like rings, specific thrust washers and so on I used Partzilla for years but have recently moved to using Babbitt's Online. They have a pretty handy app that I can look stuff up on while I'm working on an ATV. Partzilla's ship times also have gone to crap. I do go to the local owned parts store though for bearings whenever possible. The brake drum side bearing on a Honda 300 is $40 from Honda, but I get a Timken from the local parts store (non chain) for $6.03.

    So for oil, I use 4 stroke valvoline ATV oil and have been getting it at walmart online. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Valvoline-4-Stroke-ATV-Conventional-10W-40-Motor-Oil-1-Quart/19514362 For seat covers, I would check amazon for a kemimoto cheap cover something like: Also on kemimoto:

    I bought this four-wheeler used for my son's birthday last week. It wasn't running when I got it but after a new battery and some tinkering it has been running for 5 days probably 8-10 hours of run time. Today after 1 hour My son wanted to wash it, I showed him how to be careful not getting water near the engine. We were careful but after we washed it and let it dry the motor starts but the transmission slips and won't really go forward. Even if I pick the back of the four wheeler up the wheels only go forward a tiny bit. It's as if something is slipping inside. But it worked fine right before the wash. Not sure what brand. I was told it was 90 cc's the VIN is attached. Is it 90 or 110ccs? No air filter came with it. Using a some old stockings until I figure out what air filter to order. My son is so bummed so I want to get it back up to speed but also teach him how to work on it. 20200620_184911.mp4

    Well tested the cdi and it was dead dead dead, as well as the ignition coil. Now to test the stator and pickup coil. Need to pull the plastic off for easier access. I really truly hate working in grass and mud!

    @Frank Angerano I'm happy to see you online and know that things are ok with you! Glad you like the pic, my wife makes these masks and that's the pic she took to use and sell them on etsy and her website: https://www.cristinacanvas.com/listing/821687721/camo-face-mask-for-men-camouflage I figured I'd use it as my profile pic. They're selling like hot cakes! I keep telling her its not the mask but the model behind the mask...lol Happy Father's Day!

    It may only need a top end, if it sucked in dust it ruined the rings. I had this happen to my 2007. The later years with it since it had high miles it needed to be bored. Ran great after that and I sold the machine. Mike

    @Admin It is there now. Forgot to put something in the description box and just stepped off the page instead of waiting it out. My bad. The Raptor is a 125S and those from oxidized are the A variant. Small gizz or whatever those small utilities were called. Thanks for jumping in so quick!

    General rule on Japanese motors is if it has a paper gasket no sealant is needed. Usually the cases have a specific tolerance expected due to the thickness of the gasket.

    I don't think I could grow a full beard if I self-infused testosterone over two weeks. Meanwhile, a friend of mine had a full "man" beard at 16. Crazy. Where the heck has Frank been? He's usually a post-daily cat. Hopefully he / his family are okay and non-covid. Be paying attention to things, especially this fall when/if kids return to school - seasonal flu traditionally rears its ugly head around that time - don't be complacent... this crap can kill. Some key physical markers we're looking at are: shortness of breath, really low oxygen levels, red or bluish "spots" on toes/legs (see petechiae on internet), fever and overall appearance (the person just looks sick or ill) - if I see a person with 1 to 2 of these characteristics, depending on their social/medical history, they're going STRAIGHT to the hospital. Better safe than sorry. And keep wearing that mask every place you go. --> Could use advice on CV boot if/when you have a moment - it's under my "1999 suzuki king quad fuel pump/petcock/carb advice" post dated 19 May.

    Good morning good friends thank you for friendship and warm kindness doctors of the law Neither President nor Governor(s) Have Authority to Close Anything in the Private Sector (emboldening, enlargement, underlining in following authority sites added) This is NOT an opinion. This was the ruling of the United States Supreme Court shortly after the "Civil War" in Ex parte Milligan, 71 U.S. 2 (1866) which yet stands to this day: "The Constitution for the United States is a law for rulers and people equally in war and in peace…at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine…was ever invented… than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the exigencies [emergencies/urgencies] of government." pp. 120-121 “...there is no law for the government of the citizens, the armies or the navy of the United States, within American jurisdiction, which is not contained in or derived from the Constitution.” p. 141 In 16 American Jurisprudence 2d, a legal encyclopedia of United States law, suspension of the Constitution is prohibited, as follows: “It is sometimes argued that the existence of an emergency allows the existence and operation of powers, national or state, which violate the inhibitions of the Federal Constitution. The rule is quite otherwise. NO emergency justifies the violation of any of the provisions of the United States Constitution." Section 71 "...Neither the legislature nor any executive or judicial officer may disregard the provisions of the Constitution in case of an emergency…" Section 98 Therefore, ANYONE who declares the suspension of constitutionally guaranteed rights (to freely travel, peaceably assemble, earn a living, freely worship, etc.) and/or attempts to enforce such suspension within the 50 independent, sovereign, continental United states of America is making war against our constitution(s) and, therefore, we, the people. They violate their constitutional oath and, thus, immediately forfeit their office and authority and their proclamations may be disregarded with impunity and that means ANYONE; even the Governor and President! “A law repugnant to the Constitution is void. An act of Congress repugnant to the Constitution cannot become a law. The Constitution supersedes all other laws and the individual’s rights shall be liberally enforced in favor of him, the clearly intended and expressly designated beneficiary.” – Marbury vs. Madison, 5 U.S. 137 (SCOTUS—1803) “An unconstitutional law is void and is as no law. An offense created by it is not crime. A conviction under it is not merely erroneous but is illegal and void and cannot be used as a legal cause of imprisonment.” – Ex parte Siebold, 100 U.S. 371 (SCOTUS—1879) “An unconstitutional act is not law. It confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office. It is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” – Norton vs. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425 (SCOTUS—1886) “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule-making or legislation which would abrogate them.” – Miranda vs. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (SCOTUS—1966) "The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statue, to be valid, must be in agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows: The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted. "Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principals follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it...A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it superseded thereby. No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it." – 16 American Jurisprudence 2d, Sec. 177 “No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law, and no courts are bound to enforce it. The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, whether federal or state, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose, since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed.” – 16 American Jurisprudence 2d, Sec. 256 Executive Orders and other Presidential Directives have no general applicability and lawful effect on anyone other than those in the Executive branch of government and even they must be Constitutional. In Confederate Bands of Ute Indians vs. United States, 330 U.S. 169 (1947), the U.S. Supreme Court noted that presidential authority may not be created by arbitrary action of the President of the United States even if an Executive Order was issued.
