  1. i agree it is on the operatig table tomorrow, how to you tell if the one way bearing is bad?
  2. So would worn out friction disk act like a break is on when you try to move. Its really strange?
  3. I knew it was to good to be true. Another problem.lol. Here is the deal. Kids were riding the atv's. No problems. Park the 250 and went out next day and it wont move when put in gear? It shifts fine, reverse and all other gears. When you give it gas it acts like a brake is on, but its not. It will try to move forward but then just kinda wont. Make sense? Same in reverse. Put it in Nuetral and it rolls fine. Lift up the rear end and it will spin the wheels in gear when you give it gas? This is a 2003 model. I have not looked at the clutch adjustment yet, but other than that I have no clue. Like I said it ran fine prior to being parked the day before.
  4. JayDee, send to AKATV .They all are repairable. Its just the polariaztion screen that is jacked up. Same on all of them. Mine looks brand new again. I sent it to Alaska and back in 8 days. AKATV will send it back out same day if he gets if early enough in the day from the Post Office.
  5. I'm from tx too.yes he can reprogram.shoot him a text.hes awesome.
  6. Hello, I am looking for the cover that goes over the fuses by the battery. Dont know what happened to mine? If anyone one has a spare shoot me a reply. Ill pay a fair price plus shipping. Thanks
  7. Everyone who has an bad LCD display because of a bad polarization film needs to send your meter to @AKATV! Let me tell you, this guy knows what he is doing and he will fix and return your meter looking like brand new. So I was a little nervous about sending my meter to a guy that I have never met on a forum and to Alaska, at that! Dont worry. He knows what he is doing and communicated with me the entire time. I sent my meter via USPS and insured on a Thursday. It arrived at his house on a Monday(today) afternoon and he had it fixed and back in the mail to me the same day. I should get it Friday or Saturday. He sent pictures after the repair and pictures of the USPS box and tracking number. Dont worry and dont try this repair yourself unless you just want to. To each his own. I did not want to risk messing it up. All you do is send the actual lcd circuit board. It is very easy to remove. He has the power connections at his shop to energize the unit for testing. He only charges a very reasonable amount to do this repair. I checked other places and it was double what he charges. A new meter is 250-350 dollars. You dont need one unless your board is toast which is rarely the case. The polarization layer which sits on top of the LCD, its a plastic film basically, gets old and ages with time. Replace it and you once again have a crystal clear display! While your meter is out, you will have time to also buff and polish the cover lens. I used Meguiars headlight restoration kit to polish mine. It too is like new again. I will post pictures once I get it back and install it onto the machine, but here are a few pics until then. The pictures speak for themselves!
  8. My meter is off to AKATV for repair. I will post pics when it gets back! If it gets back..lol!! Hopefully USPS doesn't mess things up!!
  9. wow , thanks for all the warm welcomes. I have been in touch with AKATV and my faded meter is off to him for repair. I will keep posted. Thanks
  10. Hello, Not new to ATV's .Been restoring for years. Currently working on a Rancher 350ES that needs the screen fixed. So i need to post and introduce so I can get in touch with the guy in Alaska! Hopefully the 350ES continues to serve me well.
