Just bought a Suzuki quad. No rear brakes. Believe cable is adjusted to the max. It is a 1998 LT-4WD OR 4WDX Ser #JSAAK2A4W2100895. Is there any tricks to getting the rear hubs and shoes off that I should know before I start? Thanks Chuck
First relax, take a deep breath, stand back and analyze the situation. No crank (electric start) Check to make sure the key is on Battery - chk for 12v @ batt, chk w/ load tester, chk acid/water levels Fuses - chk wiring to fuses, chk fuse holder, fusible links, starter connection wiring- MAKE SURE ALL grounds and connections are clean and tight kick start/pull start - if it starts that way the motor isnt blown now narrow diag to starter circuit Crank no start- Bad gas - an atv sitting for a year isnt going to start right away nor run correctly. Remove old gas, clean filter and drain/clean carb E-switch - make sure kill switch is on Running issues - wiring- make sure all connections are clean, tight (cable ties) and waterproofed carb- if you dont know how to adjust your carb have someone do it as I found out there is an art to it. if it is a factory carb follow the service manual. water - "runs like shit after I went through 4 feet of water" - Ummm yeah D/L a service manual for your atv. Most are free. Someone has to have one. Everyone on QC has had a similar problem and maybe a solution, but what may sound like a ticking to you could sound like a rod knock to someone else. We arent there so we dont know but I do know everyone on here is very helpful Invest in a quality set of tools and KNOW HOW TO USE THEM! The tools that came with your atv arent quality tools. Start with the easiest things first. If you have 2 similar quads swap parts first. Today I had a brand new boom piston that was bad from the factory. It cost me $3800. The factory swore I was doing something wrong but I went through their checklist and did some common sense checking before I called them. So now they are paying all shipping and restocking fees. This could of gotten ugly and expensive if I just started replacing everything else in that hydraulic circuit and assumed the brand new piston wasnt the problem. Anyone else want to add some common things to check, please do as one person never has all the answers.
Replacing The CVT Belt Keep your belt healthyEventually in our riding adventures we do wear out certain components on our ATVs. Having staged our "One Bad Mudda" (September '08 issue) in some of the south's deepest bogs, we noticed more and more slipping in the transmission at lower rpm on our Can-Am Outlander 800. This began to get worse until finally the quad couldn't pull its own weight. Stress on the CVT is undeniably huge as this is where the rubber really meets the road before the tires ever turn. Getting the belt in our CVT wet did nothing to help our situation either. With smoke billowing from the awesome Gorilla snorkel kit, we knew it was time to address the problem. Our hope is that this little how-to might help get your machine out of the garage and back on dirt. So here is the short course on changing the CVT belt.
