ran fine before. just replaced a freyed cable. nothing else was changed.
i have a 95 polaris xplorer 400. just replaced the throttle cable. has oil inject cable as well. whats the procedure for adjusting the cable. start at the carb and adjust till the carb is wide open or start at the throttle adjuster on the bars. it seems to run ok and starts fine but now as soon as i hit the throttle hard it bogs and then catches up. im unsure of procedure.

ill try a new battery. thanx. i figured with the charger on there it would work. noticed tonight that the fluid levels in the battery are way down. some might even be empty.
this is on my 1998 polaris explorer 400. the winch wont work. i had the switch apart today. very coroded inside. i could make it work while it was all apart, but really had to manipulate the buttons. can i hook up a toggle switch somehow? Has anyone done this or do you need the proper switch. mine is a hand held unit with the grip on it. i was thinking i could use a spring style toggle but dont know alot about the switches. thanx in advance.
hey all. i just aquired a 1998 polaris explorer 400. the starter doesnt work. i tapped on the starter as i held the starter button in. it will turn over very slow. this was with my charger hooked up to battery. would my starter be screwed, or would it be the solonoid. when i hit the button i can hear the solonoid click. any ideas would be appreciated.

ya oil sounds abbout right. thats about what i put in. as for the noise, i replaced the front ujoint with one with a grease nipple. turns out that evertime the nipple went around, it barely rubbed on the belly plate. i pounded the plate down a bit with a hammer and a punch, and the noise was gone. thanx everyone

im looking at buying an 06 king quad. doesnt run. guy said it stopped on the trail. he got it home, and checked compresion. apparently none. im not sure if it was just low, or actually zero. any ideas what this may be? im hoping to maybe get it cheep and repair it. thanx.
im looking for one as we speak. thanx for the help.
thanx. will look tommorow. didnt see anything marked any where.
i noticed today that the front wheels look like they are pointed inward. im new to quads, and was wondering if this was normal. do i need to make some adjustments? thanx guys.
how much oil does a 95 yamaha big bear 350 take. also how much oil in the front diff.

on my 95 bigbear. i ust completely cleaned every nook and cranny. what is the proper carb adjusting procedure? how many turns on the air screw, and setting the cable, how far up is the slide supposed to be?

are you talking the pin that holds the float in?
doesnt have a 4x4 shifter anywhere. i think its full time.
hey guys. new hear. i just got a 95 big bear that ran fine when i looked at it, but now when i startit, it idles real bad. it runs for a bit at a higher idle, then dies right down and then dies. fire it back up and turn the idle screw in and it idles high. will run fine for a bit then stutters and idles down almost dies then lights up again, then a second later, dies. ive cleaned the carb the best i can . blew out the passages and tried again. still does the same . the air screw was bottomed right down. i opened it to about 2 turns out. seemed to bring the idle back up, then stuters and back down till almost dead, then dies. any suggestions?
i just want to say hi first off. i just got burned bad on a quad. 95 yammy bigbear 4x4. anyways, i get home and get stuck. front wheels dont spin. first i thought that the cv joints are gone. find out after tearing front end apart that the gears inside the diff will turn when you turn the yolk by hand. as soon as you put the splined shaft of the cv joint into the diff, and turn the yolk going into the diff, the cv's on both side wont turn when you hold them with your hand. im baffled as to whats wrong. i pulled the diff apart and took out the big gear and disassembled that gear. in side that gear there are three rings that have like a checkerd pattern on them. the outer one looks to have the pattern worn off. are these some kind of clutch plates or pressure plates that lock up the cv's and make them turn? if you spin the yolk that goes into the front diff and look into where the cv's go, you can see the spline turn. as soon as the splines on the cv shaft go in the spline inside3 the diff stop turning when turning tha yolk by hand. please help. i payed 1500 for this thing and after having it for 2 hrs, the guy tells me go to hell.
