  1. IF I trust the person, and whether or not the machine or piece of equipment is essential for me, are the things that hang in the balance on whether or not I lend something out. Usually I don't. Most people don't know how to take care of their stuff. If they did, they wouldn't be going around asking people to borrow stuff.
  2. Snow is just about all gone finally! So now all the atvs are coming out and people are calling me. ! I'm busy.
  3. Ya, I watched that yesterday actually. The atv is rolling in neutral just fine. I’ll make sure I can cycle through the gears though.
  4. Cylinder looks salvageable, but not something that can be done here I don’t think. Rings and piston are shot. wrist pin is seized. No play in the shaft. Guess it’s not as bad as it could have been.
  5. This wasn't a dealer error, but a mechanic who doesn't have experience with atvs. I know him, and he realized his mistake. Garage is willing to pay for parts and labour. Will likely be digging into it this morning. Im worried about the bottom end, gears and such. If I have able to get all four wheels off the ground and cycle through the gears, would this be a good way to troubleshoot problems in the bottom end without splitting the case?
  6. It seems to me it will need a new head, cam shaft, cylinder, piston and rings, but I won't know for sure until I get inside and inspect.
  7. A local buddy of mine had wheel bearings and an oil change done at the local garage. Mechanic finished the job, drove around and called my buddy. Buddy walked to the garage and drove home with it. Near his house, engine started to make a lot of noise, and sort of locked up and stalled. Took it home. I poked around it, then checked the oil filter, it was in backwards. Fairly certain the damage is done, from driving it about 6-7 miles before it stalled. It will not start, and makes ungodly noises that say stop trying to start me. I've been asked to sort it out by the garage. Just wondering from the experts here, what usually goes wrong/burns up from a backwards oil filter. Its a 2011 foreman 500 footshift.
  8. We've got three dogs in the house, tied in the front, loose in the back yard. No one bothers us, have three shiny hondas sitting outfront, knock on wood, no one comes poking around, everything is very visible, not much theft here. Back on the farm I've had to set up game cameras because people come in from the rear of the property.
  9. I was getting very confused with the readings and what to test. I decided to start comparing tests between the stator on the machine and the extra I have, and the old regulator on the machine, and the China(?) copy I have. Everything tested out the same except for one yellow wire contact on the regulator. I decided to swap the regulator just to see. Low and behold system is charging properly. (Ignore the-)
  10. At the stator 5 wire round plug, all the yellow wires beep and read at .001. I also have no continuity between red and green at the regulator . edit: I assumed green was ground, but now see it is not.
  11. Finally did the grownup thing and YouTubed how to check for continuity. When I touch the multi leads together they beep. Testing the crimped wires at the regulator/rectifier there is no beep, and no reading, between green and all the yellows. I also tested continuity on the regulator/rectifier and get readings for 2/3 between yellows and green at .517
  12. Quick question , taking the stator, I found what looks like wire debris under this top bolt. Is this also a ground? Behind the starter.
  13. I started working on repairing the air filter , then decided to swap a nicer pull start, now I’m here and figure I ‘might as well’ ( @jeepwm69) swap stators.
