  2. Help! This hub has been soaking in liquid wrench for two days now. The hub puller in the picture has been on under tension with an impact wrench for 24 hours, removed and re-tightened at least twice in that time. I've tried smacking it from two sides simultaneously with ball peen hammers while under tension and also heating it until the liquid wrench began to smoke also while under tension and it's not budging. Anyone have any advice? Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  3. What made you clean the carb in the first place? You're not giving us much history to go on. Sent from my KFOT using Tapatalk
  4. The behavior you're describing sounds like the jetting is rich. When you cleaned the carb, did you use any hard objects to clean out passages? Sent from my KFOT using Tapatalk
  5. When did this start happening? Was anything done to it recently or since you last rode it? Sent from my KFOT using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks. Plastics are much worse than they look in the pic and the frame is pretty rust around the pegs but I think I got a fair deal. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  7. Compression test is definitely on my to-do list. It'll just be a few weeks before I can get back in the garage. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  8. I rode it some and it seems like it'll have plenty of power for them even with the 15:38 Gearing. Since it needs a chain, it's a good time to consider that too. I figure going back to stock or in that direction would make it more forgiving of shifting errors on the trails. Would love to get some opinions Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks quadnut. I bought this one primarily for my daughters in law to ride when they visit with my sons. If there's any mods to do when (if) I do the cylinder gasket what might you recommend? They have little to no experience on 4-wheelers but I've seen one of the mods people do to the 400ex is to put an aftermarket cam in it. Should I bother? The "she rides" section of this site is the main reason I went with the 400ex. The girls over there said they loved theirs. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  10. Just picked this up over the weekend; 2001 400ex starts and runs great with fairly new rubber, nerf bars, aftermarket subframe (needs a grab bar), aftermarket bearing carrier & LEX MXe exhaust. Needs bushings and bearings front and rear. Oh yeah and it's got alum wheels too. It may be leaking at the bottom of the cylinder on the carb side (cleaned it all off and ran it/road it for an hour or so but didnt see any sign of oil or leaking and needs the chain replaced. picked it up for $1200 If I take the cylinder off to replace the gaskets, should i do anything else while Im in there?
  11. Not sure I understand your description of how to use it. Can you post a pic of it in action? Circlips can be a real pia. And a good tool for them is expensive. Thanks! Sent from my KFOT using Tapatalk
  12. There's a very thorough thread on polaris atv that ought to help. If it wasn't so extensive, it copy it here. Good luck: http://www.polarisatvforums.com/forums/polaris-atv-how-tos/32989-awd-hubstrut-hilliard-clutch-troubleshooting-diagnoses.html Sent from my KFOT using Tapatalk
  13. Hey All, Looking for some recommendations on an ATV for my Daughters-in-law to ride when they visit with my sons. We ride mostly woods trails. It needs to be fairly easy to ride, automatic is't necessary but shifting should be forgiving and it needs to be under $2000. I have a Banshee and a Polaris Sportsman 500HO now. One DIL is tiny, 5' and about 100lbs, the other is about 5'8" and 130lbs. I'm concerned that steering on the Sportsman may require too much upper body strength and the Banshee is definitely not a beginner's ride. I'm thinking about a Warrior (may be under powered) or a Honda 400EX but I'd love to hear what others might suggest? Thanks!
