Daughters quad started blowing oil. Pulled top end, found piston and sleeve marred. Replaced piston and cylinder, upon verifying TDC using my thumb to hold pressure, notice loss of pressure against thumb while hearing a "bubbling" sound from inside the head. 1) While I had compression loss from old piston/cylinder. I did not notice compression loss from head. 2) All Top End gaskets are new. Head gasket is in excellent condition. 3) Head and Cylinder mating surfaces were prepared, cleaned & slightly sanded to ensure no foreign objects & smooth surface. 4) Did not use any type of extra gasket material (RTV, etc) on head gasket. Although, head gasket came with some sort of (rtv style) seal. Link to show example of this head gasket: Cylinder Head Gasket for Coolster Mountopz ATVs - $3.95 I am beyond frustrated... What am I missing?
I loss compression on 1994 kawasaki bayou 300 4x4. It had good compression but had a rough idle it would go up and then down very unstable but when I put it in gear it ran fine. I ran it gor about 20 minutes and parked it. The next day when I go to start it up I notice that there is no compression and it wilol not start. I checked the compression with a gauge and it does not read anything. I put a little oil in the cylinder through the plug hole then ran another compression test and it still does not read anything. Do you think the valves could be the problem? Any sugesstions. This is a unit that has been sat up for a couple of years. I have a new plug in it and installed a new honda carberator from winn cycles from ebay, did this to try and get it to idle which did not help any. Any advice is helpful. thanks
ok, here's the skinny... rideing my 98 bayou 300, its like 2am, and having lots of fun.. Thin... OHH SHIT... tree... the bayou climbed it like a monkey, my head lights wher pointed at the sky. i checked it over and no damage. so i parked it for the night. 2 days later i take it out for a ride and its overly loud and and losing power when i hit the gas. i checked the exhaust and no visible damage. i checked everything i can think of and still the same:aargh: can any one help?
i have a drx 90 air cooled and when my son takes off it goes fast and then when he lets off the gas and presses again it bogs down really bad. we tried changing jets going up and down and a few other things but nothing seems to work.
