  1. Hey Frank, I don't have much experience riding the three wheelers, but can easily understand the rolling possibility on the times I have ridden them. They seem to be fun and simple units, which probably helps with reliability. They do well on the flat area around the shop. I don't think I'd want to side-hill on one though. That's the worst when a neglected unit is just left sitting outside. The tires go flat and rot, the carburetor builds up corrosion, battery goes bad, and so on..
  2. Recently, Jonathan has been repairing & reassembling a client's 1983 Big Red Honda ATC200E. In this video, he gives an overview of how he approached diagnosing the ATC and creating a plan for the project.
  3. In this video, Jonathan diagnoses & repairs the decompression system on a Yamaha 2003 Grizzly 660. Some symptoms include: Pulling recoil right out of your hand, starter turning really slowly, constant dead batteries. Thanks for watching!
  4. Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor. In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber. Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut. If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video. Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
  5. Diagnostics - Bad Voltage Regulator (2007 Arctic Cat 700 EFI) In this video, Jonathan investigates a client's observation that he has had to replace the battery every 2 years on his 2007 Arctic Cat 700. Watch the video to follow Jonathan's diagnostic process. Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
  6. In this video, Jonathan describes how he cleaned a Nikasil plated cylinder. Aluminum cylinders are often coated with a harder material such as Nikasil (Nickel Silicon Carbide). Over time, the softer aluminum of the pistons can rub off onto the cylinder. When rebuilding the top-end, this should be cleaned off. This can be done using hydrochloric acid which reacts with aluminum to produce hydrogen gas and aluminum chloride, which washed off with water. Since Nikasil is resistant to corrosion, it is undamaged and protects the cylinder during this process. Here is the chemical reaction: 2 Al (s) + 6 HCl (aq) → 2 AlCl3 (aq) + 3 H2 (g) Resurgence Small Engine Inc. ATV, Snowmachine, Motorcycle, & Outdoor Power Equipment
  7. Something to think about if you have cooling coming out of that hole in the bottom of your engine! One of the damaged components on this engine was pitting on the water pump impeller shaft. This would have caused the coolant to leak out of the engine crankcase and probably was the root cause of its failure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cacO8F5wLRg
  8. Here is an issue we see often at the shop! In this video, Robyn explains how to confirm the year of an ATV using the VIN. It is important to confirm the ATV model year as this is a commonly mistaken characteristic that is often essential to order the correct part. Each VIN consists of 17 characters. The 10th character will help you identify the machine year. To do so, compare it with the chart available on our website: https://resurgencesmallengine.com/machine-identification
  9. In this video, Jonathan looks at a crashed ATV with a throttle position sensor (TPS) error. Watch to see the importance of the sensor position. This Polaris 2009 Sportsman XP 550 was brought to the shop because the engine did not sound right after it was crashed. It arrived with error code 520194 - 3, which corresponds to abnormally high voltage values from the throttle position sensor. Upon inspection, the sensor is working correctly, but had been jarred out of position in the impact. Watch this video to see Jonathan demonstrate how to align the throttle position sensor and to see what happens when it is not quite where it is supposed to be.
  10. In this video, Jonathan checks and adjusts the valves clearances on a Honda Foreman 450. On this unit, the exhaust valve had excessive clearance. Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
  11. Here is a reminder to confirm comparability when ordering parts. This E-Ton Viper 90 that does not start or crank. Before coming to the shop, the ignition switch had been replaced. Watch the video to find out the diagnosis! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.

  13. This past spring, Jonathan worked on a 1991 QuadRunner 250 that came with the fuel pump removed. We didn't find good information about connecting it online, so we made a video. Below is the link to watch Jonathan describe the connections on the Suzuki fuel pump. This applies to both the Quadrunner and King Quad ATV models. Hope you find it informative!
