    I received this set this week and used them. Could not be happier. You strip the wires put them into the connector and hit them with some heat. The tube shrinks and has a gasket material that melts and surrounds the wires, then there is a strip of soft solder that melts as well connecting the wires. Very strong. 👍🏻 50 pcs Solder Seal Heat Shrink Butt Connectors Electrical Marine Automotive Waterproof Wire Splice Insulated Connector Kit 26 24 22 20 18 16 14 12 10 Gauge AWG https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LK2YJQC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_RZ-GCb3N1M9Q1

    You'd have to measure to be sure , but the hubs may very well be interchangeable. My guess is they most likely are if they are from similar quad series. Hubs from a 250cc to 350cc bike in either series are more likely to be a direct swap than from a 250 and one with a much larger displacement. More power would call for heavier axles and hubs in most cases.

    The simple fact that this thread has not spun out of control speaks volumes to the conduct on the forum......I realize this is my first post. I have spent some time on another forum, this thread would have played out differently. I opened this one out of morbid curiosity. Kudos to you guys.

    Nice video, winter here has been terrible. Ski slopes are not that good right now. The snow in the trees is from snowmaking, They only got a few hours in before it warmed up.

    I'd recommend hooking up the new starter & cranking it over with the spark plug removed. Good Idea to ground the plug while doing so. Keep pumping it until there's no sign of fuel. Very important: don't let the plug spark anywhere near that fuel getting cleared! Not very likely there's damage to the crank/piston, just don't turn it over without the plug out.

    I doubt the lack of coolant affected the transmission.. Most transmissions can be run a long time with the coolant lines blocked off unless they're being run under very heavy load. The lack of coolant would have seized the motor long before it hurt the tranny.

    an't fight you on that .. My own quad is a 1991 Fourtrax 300FW. Does everything I want . Bought used 6 years ago.. Only repair I've needed to do on it is replace the rear axle due to worn out splines at the hubs. and replace front brake shoes. Still runs strong and not burning oil. Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki are also all good machines ; as well as the Kymco machines.. I know some swear by Polaris but around here most swear at the older ones ..They're nicknamed "Pullhairis" by the ones I know that have had one in the past . I don't know how the newer ones are because nobody I know has one ..

    I saw this article on Motosport and thought it was pretty good. Anyone add anything? You might think hopping on-board an ATV and going for a spin is just as easy as taking your regular 4-wheel car for a ride around the block. After all, both have four wheels. How hard could it be? In many respects, you're right. Some adventure riders choose quads over their two-wheeled counterparts of the dirt because there's less chance of crashing and it's easier to learn. ATVs also offer more manageability for younger riders to get acquainted with outdoor riding than a dirt bike. However, beginner riders on ATVs tend to make the same mistakes that result in crashes, roll overs and injury that could be avoided with some instruction and know-how. If you're looking at a fun family outing by renting ATVs or want to get into the sport take advantage of the following points and avoid the same mistakes so many other first time ATV riders make that end their day early or before they barely get started. 1. Nerf Bars Get Nerf bars. These are not soft cushy add-ons that are cousins to the football you use during backyard football games. In many respects, Nerf bars are gigantic foot pegs. Don't bother with traditional foot pegs because you'll constantly slip off and because of the "I feel safe factor" that comes with riding a quad you'll also have a tendency to let your feet drag when riding. That's a recipe for getting one or both of your feet caught in the back tire resulting in serious injury. Nerf bars allow you to stabilize your feet and get maximum control over the ATV Rest your feet easy on Nerf bars 2. Rolling Over Believe it or not, it's fairly easy to roll an ATV over. And you don't want to be on the bottom of that sandwich. The most common way of ending underneath a quad is looping out. That's done by hitting the gas and having little to no experience with the power of an ATV. The front spikes up like an out of control stallion, throws you onto your back like a bucking bronco and then pins you like a UFC Champ. The second way is when you're having a bit too much fun sliding around in mud or other slick conditions, the tires finally do what they're designed to do and grip the ground but the rest of the bike, with you on it, keeps going. Finally, those who think they've found their bearings take aim for a steep slope and try to conquer it only to end up upside down or in their attempt to arch alongside said steep hill, tumble over the side. 3. False Sense of Security This goes somewhat hand-in-hand with the roll over capability that many riders fail to appreciate therefore they also neglect wearing proper protective equipment. Don't think wearing jeans, t-shirt and sneakers is adequate protection when riding a 4-wheeled machine powered by a gas engine that doesn't have seatbelts. You need a helmet, goggles, gloves and riding boots at a minimum. Once you start ripping it on the track or trails add a chest protector, neck brace, knee brace, etc. 4. Throttle Control Everybody wants to skip the kiddie stage and get right into hair-raising speed when it comes to riding ATVs. OK, most everybody. But for those who do so many put on the cloak of invincibility and think a quad is merely a mini car that finally enables them to release all sorts of pent up childhood inhibitions. So they jab their thumb into the throttle with the expectation of a controlled roller coaster ride. Instead, they loop out and end up underneath the quad or manage to stay seated only to careen off course and introduce their 4x4 to a large tree. ATVs normally have a thumb throttle and most have an automatic clutch so the clutch is one less thing to worry about. So go slow and figure out how much "thumb" is too much and get used to the speed and power an ATV delivers before really going for a ride. Oh, one more thing, learn to take your thumb off the throttle! It's not to hard to loop out on an ATV 5. Loading the ATV Never, ever ride an ATV up a ramp into the back of a pick-up. If you want to know why just go to YouTube. If you want to know how to load an ATV check out this fine piece of quality information on How to Load a Motorcycle, Dirt Bike or ATV into a Truck. The bottom line to riding an ATV the first time is treat it like you would anything that comes with a modicum of danger. Careless behavior endangers you and others but with common sense and a willingness to learn you'll enjoy of lifetime of riding quads.

    Waiting for day off to continue. Yea is a pain to fix others rig. Looking at the harness and other wiring I really don't see any other areas where they messed with it. Looks pretty stock and no burns or messed up wiring. Ill check the regulator on Friday and also see which one had power at ign. I did check starter switch and is open so figure its bad. Now I tried to jump wires on opposite end of connector and still no crank with key on and off. LOL at least im not posting trash just to get a download

    To start it off, I'd like to share the bakery display cases I made for my wife. I'm sure ya'll have some impressive stories behind those HF tools, let's see 'em! I built these bakery display cases for wife on almost 100% HF tools a couple years ago. Only thing I bought from Home Depot was the wood/plywood/stains and 3 sawhorses for my workbench. Router, circsaw, blades for both, sander, sandpaper, gloves, the nails for the nailgun (gun borrowed from dad, have a 5# pancake for air) I had almost zero tools to start. Some of their cheap "speed" clamps failed, but first time for me using those types of clamps, was expecting them to hold better: heh my youngest helping my dad glue: and for fun, here was the finished project (1 of 2, built 2 cases, this is the smaller .. the plastic was from Tap Plastics for the "sneeze guards" and the top case): back side showing both cases:

    Thanks for all of the helpful tips and ideas! I wish i could work on it right now but the weather isn't agreeing with me (Wish i had a nice garage lol). I'll definitely go at it once this rain lets up. I've messed with the carb so much but from what I've read off this forum i'll tear it down again and correct the air/fuel screw and also run seafoam afterwards. If it still runs the way it does right now ill correct the timing and checks the cams! I'll also check the belts while i'm at it.

    Great work @Skhot K , thats the first thing i noticed when i looked at the bike was the tires. But thats a good first investment. Look on Amazon they have great deals. Happy to hear the bike runs great, its money well spent. Differential fluids 1000% change, they are often overlooked or forgotten about. Keep a log of what your doing and the fluids your changing, its good to keep track.

    There should be one by the battery. There is a round small relay. Usually right next to it is a fuse. Take a few pics and post them, we will point it out if its there. On some of the smaller atvs it different. I haven't looked at the manual but it should be there. Have you located that fuse #3 on your diagram? And lastly some of those bikes had the emergency rip cord to shut it down in an emergency if you fall off the atv as well as a brake switch where you have to pull the brakes in to start.

    Yes sir. Harness is about 50.00, that's what my deductible is. I would fix it but it will cost the same and I want th ore vibration issue looked at also. Only 800 trail miles on the machine. 4 trail riding trips. not fond of mudding, thorough cleaning after every ride. No built up mud in/on rims. I get harrased about my clean equipment by the guys I ride with all the time.

    UPDATE: i working on replacing the carb, and changing the oil, as from it sitting the oil level is very diluted by gasoline. other sources say that all of my problems are most likely the carb being toast, as the problem wasnt sudden, it gradually had gotten worse the more it was used. will keep posted.

    I think you have a variator issue if it runs fine when jacked up and boggs down when sitting on the ground your variator is stuck in high gear mode , a thorough revision on the variator weights and proper belt positioning should solve your problem also check rear clutch spring is in good condition they often brake causing the problem you describe Please keep me posted Good luck!!

    I would def do that and if possible take the valuable cover off so you can see the valve springs. Take WD 40 with the red hose on the top and spray it on the stem of the valve where the seal is. There should be bubbles where the seals are if it’s leaking as you spray it. I like to use windex or a soapy solution but then you have to change the oil.

    As long as our discussions bring others to thinking and searching for facts , real facts, and forming their own opinions we have accomplished something. We may not agree on everything. What a boring world that would make , but we can civilly disagree and reach a consensus that benefits us all. If only we were all as smart as the Great Orange one claims to be

    You really need to look into health care and where a lot of advancements in health care drugs and procedures/ equipment come from .. Many do come from the for profit US , but many come from other systems too.. You already have " Socialism" in many of your programs .. It just is not recognized as such by industry and the public so conditioned to panic whenever someone says "Socialism".. It is a Pavlovian reaction to a century or more of conditioning . "Communism" collapsed in Russia for many reasons , but communism was not one of them .. There is no real communist federal governments in any country, and any place where there is cooperation and support between the communities citizens is a form of socialism. The only place you would find no socialism is in an anarchy where it everyone for himself. For profit does not drive all the advances in medicine . Most are driven by research in universities and other supported research groups where the results are normally turned over to business. That is as true in the US as it is elsewhere.

    A trick we've often used to clean small tanks is to put some pebbles or marbles in them and give a good shaking to knock any rust, scale or other solids loose .. Shake out the rocks and crud. and have a look. If there's still build up in there, do it again. Finally rinse it out and thoroughly dry. It would be a challenge to cut a tank in half to clean and weld it back together. Unless you're very skilled and the tank isn't too thin you'll make nothing but a useless mess out of it, A welding shop would charge you more than the cost a new tank to do they job if you could even find one to take it on.

    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 purchased this one and it seems to work better then what I had for maintaining the battery on the Jumping Jack trailer. I also found that this charger will work off the inverter that is built into my Tahoe. This gives me a means to charge the battery on the trailer if I run it down. My old charger would not work off the inverter. Mike

    Change the oil. There should be an adjustment screw that squeezes the clutch plates together. This reduces excessive gap between the plates caused by normal wear. I don't know where it is on your machine. Hopefully some one else will respond with that.

    I've used them all in the past, but always end up back at ubuntu. It's just so easy, the latest version is no big deal to get, it'll run decent on even the most crusty machine, it's wonderful. Right now I'm on one of those really cheap throwaway computers that doesn't even have a hard drive, just 30gb soldered to the board. It wasn't capable of upgrading to the new release of windows ten, and was painfully slow anyway, but a fresh install of the latest ubuntu takes only 8gb and leaves me with a nice running, simple cheap laptop. If you don't do anything unique you don't have to do anything beyond what comes with it, there is loads of specific software for those that want it, mostly free, if you don't mind a small learning curve, give it a try.

    Yep that will work fine and yes the ground will be fine anywhere on the chassis. You won’t have to add a fuse on the wire since the lighting circuit is already protected at the fuse block but you can if you want it can’t hurt. Juts be sure your tapping the running light and not the brake light.
