Here is a wild stab at a theory for you , that VE91BA carb is really a 95 carb not a 91 , I believe the fuel enrichment plunger for a 95 was the long version where the 91 should have been the short version  , someone along the way changed the carb and then changed the kill  switch assembly to make the plunger work as the short plunger used a different cable and kill switch assembly , and when they did the kill switch didn't work 

makes perfect sense !. the carb kit i put in it is for a 88-90 ( i already had it here ), if it runs like crap ?, i'll break down and buy a 95 shindy kit. the switch i used on it came off a 1990 trx300, so that would explain why the switch did work. its nice to have two brains here again !!..lol. i have a feeling i will need to change out the choke cable and enrichment valve...sigh..lol.

i got the rear diff back together, bolted it up on the swing arm, then the center tube, had to stop, i don't have the bearings and seal for the backing plate for rear brake, time to hit catfish up again, man, i'm racking up miles going back and forth to his place these last few days ?..aghhhh...lol. spun the pinion gear, does spin pretty good, has a tad noise to it ?, i knew it would going by the teeth on the set, i hope it will get better when i get gear oil in it ?, just glad he wont be trying to go cross country on this !..lol.

That rear diff still looks better than Scar's when I got her. Whole thing was pure metal shavings form the teeth grinding against each other from no oil in there. 
Was a silver paste basically. 

but ya... PO did not treat Scar well.

that's where that magnetic check / fill plug will do her job, 😉

i hate to break it to ya ?, but if the teeth decide to go ?, a magnetic fill cap/plug is NOT going to save the ring gear and pinion gear !, by the time you discover it picked up some teeth ?, the rear end is toast !.

Yep, agree. Ment to help catch normal wear fragments, not to replace you having teeth on your gears 😛

 

Thats what happens when you (the PO) runs it without more than like.... 3oz of oil in the diff. 

 

I was just younger, a novice to ATV's and my dad really didnt teach me ! about mechanics, so i bought it without checking the diffs, I just make sure it started, had oil, and drove around (shifted properly. 

 

 The only thing propelling Scar at that point was the front diff. That rear rebuild was a pain...

if the engine needed work ?, then i would, but this engine runs very well, no need to open a can of worms, spec when this is a budget build, remember, cost is kept down. i wont split an engine unless it needs work.
