  1. I adjusted the brake handle and when I engage the brakes the handle still has a lot of resistance but the brakes don't stop well. I saw another post here with the same issue and they suggested to adjust the shoes. I took my brakes apart and the adjusters are seized. I tried to figure out how they work so I loosened the side that is in the wheel cylinder and removed it but there is no thread to go in or out so I don't know how they work. I sanded the pads a bit to get them rough. Reassembled and same issue.
  2. Thanks, I checked the front brakes and pads look okay. Not sure why stopping isn't very good.
  3. Hello, the ATV doesn't stop anymore so I guess it is time to replace the brakes. Looking for part number and instructions. I think it may have shoes front + back and the front would be hydraulic.

  5. Is my ATV too old or does this part not fail? I'm surprised I have not got a response by now.
  6. My ATV started making a rubbing and clunking noise. I took the skid plates off and found that the front u-joint on the shaft that connects the front axle to the transfer case is toast. My manual does not reference this repair. Looking for instructions.
  7. I am assuming it is leaking from the overflow. Took the carb apart and it is clean inside. Put it back together and gas leaks out the host at the bottom. Tested to make sure the drain screw is not the problem when I had it off.
  8. I was out the other night for a few minutes and noticed the exhaust close to the motor was bright red. I searched the internet and saw suggestions that it may be running lean. Could this be it? How do I correct this?
  9. I have not had the cover off yet. Which side is it on? How does it come off?
  10. Do you have a picture? From what I have read there is no switch and you need to ground a green and white wire out of the CDI. The side effect is no reverse light.
  11. When I back up with a load on the atv makes a sort of muffled backfiring noise and does not seem to have very much power. Any ideas?
  12. Okay all is well. Reduced the air from 20 to 3.5, adjusted the rear mount lower and used a ratchet strap to put some load on the atv from the blower bracket.
  13. So what do I do? Will shock spacers help? Is this a good idea?
  14. Okay I did a little more digging and found that there is very little clearance if any between the support that attached to the ball and the bottom of the atv. Should there be clearance? If yes then how much? I also raised the blower legs because the blade was right on the ground. I tried the ratchet strap but there is no give because the support is basically on the bottom of the atv. I also noticed the guy has 20 psi in the tires, I think iot should be 3.5.
  15. He only used it twice because he didn't like it. My driveway is gravel and right now it is packed slushy snow. I guess it cant be used in any packed conditions and when moving it around the guide wheels are always down and get hung up on things.
