    I had a 4 wheeler a bit ago that was hard to idle, hard to start, popped at WOT after running a while...always ran great cold. Issue on that one turned out to be trash in the bottom of the gas tank. As you ran and disturbed the gas it would shake up the bits and clog the screen on the petcock. After it sat a bit, the trash would fall off the petcock and it would run fine again until it stopped up again..vicious cycle. cleaned the tank and never had an issue with it again. Might be unrelated to your issue, but something to consider.

    Thanks @Ajmboy i found it on craigslist. The guy was looking to trade for a motorcycle. He said he did not use it and didn't want it to sit any longer. It starts up but only for about 20 seconds and starts to die off. Its been sitting for a while in a shed. Ive seen marketplace but never use it since i don't really use Facebook. I always get a little crazy after i finish a project like the big bear i just did and start looking for the next project. This one wont need much work so its not really a project but it's something to play with This one popped right up when i looked and the guy got right back to me. Took a lot of back and forth and coordination to lock it down bit it worked out. Im a firm believer in if its meant to be it will be.

    So just as a general FYI, it might be good to check replacement parts before installing. If possible, check clearances with a micrometer before going through the trouble of assembly. I say this as I bought a new driveshaft yoke for a Kodiak because the ujoint dropped a cap and got the yoke in a bind...blowing the yoke and middle drive gear to shreds. So I replaced the middle drive gear and bought a new yoke and ujoint kit from Caltric. Caltric is usually pretty solid replacement parts. The new yoke however was a good 4mm too narrow for inside lock ujoint caps. Disappointing since it came as a kit from Caltric. Ended up taking an angle grinder to the new yoke and thinning material off to get it to the needed 41.25mm opening size. Sucks having to disassemble everything again and start over but my fault for trusting replacement parts. Nearly 40 years of turning wrenches and I made a rookie mistake.

    Oh that happened to me on my 800. I thought I blew a belt, but the rear drive shaft had blown up and dropped out of the atv lol. Heres a pic. Cost 80 for a new shaft works good now. I had noticed that the old drive shaft appeared to be to short as it only reached half way up the rear splines

    Fyi @Colin Davis you can have access to the download section after 10 contributing posts in the forum or by becoming a paid member. The drop down menu is on the top right side, click on repair menu and then sub category. Scroll down to Yamaha and it's pretty much self explanatory from there.

    So, the new flywheel didn't fix it, nor did another flywheel off of another newer quad. Just for fun I ordered a cheap CDI unit from Amazon and bang! Spark again. I can still put the original CDI on the other bike and it runs. I suspect a tolerance stack issue, weak pickup/flywheel matched with a weak CDI. The other bike must have a slightly stronger pickup and/or flywheel so the CDI works with it. Anyway, now that that works I need to find the source of an engine knock. thanks

    So i took a road trip today to look at a Suzuki Eiger! 2006 in perfect condition other then the fact it starts for 30 seconds and shuts down. Its been sitting for about a year in a shed. It has a plow and a winch included!!! Got it for a really good price and all looks good so far. Stay tuned.

    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.

    So I was looking at my John Deere today and though, how could I make this cooler. So I tinted the windows. Lol. As I got home I was staring at my Polaris and the wife’s kfx. I thought I would have to replace the crank because of piston slap on the Polaris. Turns out I just had to adjust the choke cable a tad more. Runs great. Why do we have insurance if we only need it sometimes, and that’s questionable. What is the definition of being an adult? You can ask 6 people and get 6 different answers.

    Vehicle insurance (or boat, ATV, etc) is a real oddity. It's one of few things that we purchase primarily to protect others. Here in AR, you need liability insurance at a minimum...and that is just to protect someone else's property should you damage it. Completely different than health insurance, crop insurance, etc. Why do we buy trashbags with the sole intention to throw them away? I know no other product that you can buy just to throw away.

    Hello folks! I'm Mitch, from Pittsburgh, PA, and new to the site. Between me and my son, we own an old Suzuki LT250S, a Kawasaki KFX400 and a YZ250. My young granddaughters love messing around on an old Suzuki FA50 moped. We're going to be getting them their own quads in the near future. I hope to gain some knowledge while I'm here.

    Hi, My name is Jesse and I have been lurking around this forum for a few years now. I have a little collection that consists of: 1981 Yamaha DT175 (complete but in boxes) 1983 Yamaha KX60 near mint 1985 Yamaha Badger 80 (latest purchase to fix up) 1986 Honda XL250R 1989 Kawasaki Bayou 300 4x4 2002 Suzuki Ozark 250 I ride the KX60 once or twice a year and then I tear it down and clean it up. Then I put it on a table and clean the rims with Nevr-Dull. I don't have pictures of the DT175 or the badger.

    Set up an eBay account and part it out!
  23. 1 point
    Hopefully not a total hose job. Air box and gas tank are in good condition if I wanted to part them and other items out, as Frank mentioned. And it came with a sweet, fully-functional back storage compartment with all the parts that could sell once it's cleaned up. If I can get $150 or so for all of those parts it won't be a total loss. Time will tell. I bought an electronic service manual off ebay for $6 for my '99 King Quad and it has helped a lot. I gotta open my computer when I need it and can print pages as needed. Here's a link to an ebay electronic version of what you might be looking for at $6.99. Hard copies and other electronic versions go for a lot more. It worked for me, hopefully it'll work for you - but you be the judge on whether this is the case. https://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-TRX450R-ER-2004-2005-2006-2007-2008-2009-SERVICE-REPAIR-MANUAL/143428294696?hash=item2164fe1828:g:1b8AAOSw66FakcNp

    Im going to move it along, as nice as it is i like a foot shifter. I agree on the float pin valve. The owner said he pumped the bad gas out of the tank. Said it smelt so bad, he put new gas in and a battery. It cranked and started for only half a minute or so. I was able to take a quick ride and go through all the gears.

    Thank you! I also have a 1980 Ski-Doo Everest 500 that I've used three times in the past 5 years. It runs fine but I just don't use it. Rather be on two wheels!

    @06kfx440 post a pic of your tinted windows! Insurance is like a penalty, because if you use it, you'll end up being fined for using it by having your premiums go up...

    The temporary fix is to use the oem boot and zip tie it back on. The right way is to get the right one. Lol. if to much play is in the boot, cut a small enough line to split it but still use it. Then take silicon to patch the hole. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The lithium battery in that jump starter also delivers a higher voltage and amps than the lead acid one in the quad . It is that higher voltage under load that spins the quad over faster . The CCA rating does make a difference when it is really cold . No matter what the CCA rating is , it is an adventure starting a vehicle when the thermometer is frozen at 40 below. A battery that matches the OEM rating for the machine should start the quad reasonably fast down to about 0 Fahrenheit but after that one with a higher CCA rating will make a bit of difference .

    Hello everyone. I am here to learn, share my limited knowledge and hopfully fix a broken ATV. I have been active in everything from automobile engine overhaul to 2 and 4-cycle equipment repair and maintenance. I have a 50 year plus background in airbourn electronics repair and maintenance as well as formal electrical/mechanical technical training with the Department of Defence. All that being said I still get stumped when I can not find the technical drawings, wiring diagrams, voltage and/or resistance specifications and support documentation needed when unusual problems present themselves. Which brings me to the reason I have turned to Quadcrazy.com. I will be spending a little time getting familiar with this site then posting some questions concerning some particular problems with a customers ATV that I have in the shop for repair. Hopefully someone will be able to enlighten me and I will gladly help others as well to the best of my ability. Thanks in advance and get out there and make some noise.

    Thanks, I bought Maxxis big horn 2.0’s (take off from a Yamaha Viking) which I learned after I bought them that they are different then off the rack big horn 2.0’s which is a piss off. Apparently the Yamaha ones are 4 ply rears and 2 ply fronts instead of 6 ply like the off the rack and the take offs are biased and not radials... That doesn’t make sense to me and is a piss off but I guess it is to save Yamaha money and mislead buyers.. atleast I got them for a good price.

    Hello, thanks for having this great site i just bought my first new to me quad. I bought a 2008 Yamaha Bug Bear 400. I got it mainly for hunting but it came with a snow plow so the first test run at home was plowing mine and my neighbors driveways. Anyways thanks again. Scott

    Hello, I've recently gotten back into Atvs over the last year. It seems this site popped up while I was out of the game. I've currently got 4 atvs now: 2008 Sportsman 800, 2008 Sportsman 400, 2002 Trailblazer and a 2007 Grizzly 660.

    Ok I figured it out. The nut at the bottom of the steering shaft was loose. Good thing they put a pin in to keep it from falling off. I guess I should have looked there before posting this but now if someone else has an issue they can find this post.
