  1. Past hour
  2. A starter motor ain't gonna help ya since you haven't got the solenoid working yet. Your battery may be junk, so check and/or replace the battery first. FYI, DB Electrical starters are all china junk now too. They don't sell good parts anymore. I'd buy used OEM parts before buying anything from china, we've learned those lessons years ago. Let us know how your battery checks out.
  3. Just eat the tails? can't imagine there's much anywhere else?
  4. I would call these medium , sweet potatoes are really good in the boil
  5. Today
  6. That's a great Idea, I did do that a bit with the footwell repair I found some black plastic somewhere that was compatible with what I had.
  7. They are pretty simple after a little practice. I have a cheap one from ebay I'm using now. I dont do it enough anymore to justify the good seeley ones (lost that one in the fire). A couple things you can do with that method is melt some mesh in on the underside to help reinforce it or if you have some old fenders around use it for material to help thicken/reinforce it. Prewarming with a heat gun can help the soldering gun penetrate a little deeper for a good bond.
  8. Yup I wold never buy that crap from Amazon, better off burning money , here is the starter I was refrencing. https://www.dbelectrical.com/products/honda-atv-starter-recon-trx250-fourtrax-trx250ex-and-others.html
  9. Was just looking on Harbor Freight site, It's probably junk but they have one for $75 I may go pick one up to give it a try, I have a few plastic things that need a fix LOL
  10. I haven't bought a welder yet, but I do have a cheap soldering iron that I've been trying out, installing led lights on some hondas. It gets pretty hot, so I think it will work.
  11. You might want to into a plastic welder like toodeep is talking about, I may look into that myself
  12. Yeah, I don't have one of them, LOL I'm stuck with a soldering iron. Where'd you get the welder? is it pretty easy to use?
  13. Well done! Thank you for this post. I feel like you've helped me get pushed in the right direction with the simple soldering iron method. Will give that a shot, practice on a bucket first.
  14. Those 420s was bad at cracking around that rack mount. I have an electric/air plastic welder I use. I've been welding plastic for years.

    I tell you what, it sure isn't like it was last year. We had so much snow and cold temps in 2019 I didn't think winter was ever going to end, we're supposed to have mid-40's by weeks end. Certainly not normal, however our snow pack in the mountains is above normal, and we haven't had jack down here in the valley. I've only used my plow twice and even then it didn't amount to hardly anything. Here's some pics from last year, we had 32" in one day at one point, was glad I stayed ahead of it throughout the day.

    It's got me scratching my head for sure,it's like up and down.Have mowed my lawn twice since January 1st.
  18. TRX, Here's the photos of the plastic repair I did on my one Rancher, too cheap I guess to buy new foot well and rear fender. One of my foot wells was pretty busted up, I drilled holes, ran zip ties then started melting it back together with the soldering iron, flipped it over and smoothed it out with the flat tip that comes with the gun. It wasn't perfect but looked better than the zip ties showing, and actually the zip ties kind of melted in with it. I melted the crack around the hole on the rear fender from underneath and smoothed it with the soldering iron on the top, you can see the dark line where the crack was, I then put the graphic kit on it and never had a problem with the crack on the fender or the cracks in the foot well for the two years I rode it.

    I'm so confused. took the wife to the beach for the valentines weekend...only in the mid 50s, but strong sunshine...wind breaker to keep the windchill off of us...and just a couple weekends back I was on my boat on the lake doing test run of new motor...this kind of stuff messes with the brain when we are supposed to be in the death throws of old man winter. got home last evening at dusk and the wife wanted to ride the cart out back real quick to change out a particular trail cam that is catching a lot of bobcat activity...so with just a light jacket on...we're out there tooling around in the warm wet mud from more gulf rain systems that is bringing us 60s today..later this week we'll see 20s at night...this is a screwed up planet (grin)
  20. One more thing, be careful about putting a car charger on the atv battery......it might be too much for it....😀
  21. hey louis...the voltage on your battery should be above 12.4 better yet close to 13.1 if fully charged....i didn't mean you had the wrong battery, just that your batt. is not good enough...
