Could just be a weak starter? maybe time for new brushes. also try jumping the solenoid to see if that helps.

How to set my timing on my 2012 Arctic cat 425i


Spark timing or valve timing.

Spark time is fixed and controlled by the crank trigger. There is only two things that can change spark timing. a twisted crank ( very rare ) a sheared flywheel key (Also very rare)

Valve timing, remove the timing inspection plug and the the pull start housing, you will use the nut on the crankshaft under the pull start to turn the crank to bring the timing mark TDC-COMPRESSION STROKE - into the timing inspection hole. remove the spark plug so your not fighting engine compression to turn the motor.

Now remove the the valve cover and check the alignment line on the cam. the alignment line should be level with the top of the edges of the cylinder. if not you have a problem

Yamaha yfz 450r atv 2012 model start but don't have power to ride.


Hey Brighette
Its time to check a few things.. First - remove the air filter and see if it runs ok then... if not... have the carburetor professionally cleaned and set... does it run ok now? .. have you installed a new spark plug? .. do that.. if it is still not running ok.. time to check the compression using a compression gauge that screws into the spark plug hole...

Innova Compression Tester

Your engine should pump at LEAST 120PSI. Once you have screwed the gauge in and lightly seated the o-ring.. turn the engine over for at least 5-8 seconds with the throttle WIDE OPEN... 120psi. minimum... if you are not getting very very close to this.... its time to find out why??... it might be that the valves are too tight... but find out why?... this is probably the reason it won't run..

Hey bros any one know whats wrong with a king quad when the engine makes no sound at all im aware that the earth wire on the solanoid isnt working no spark on spark plug plug is sweet on my bike tho.


If you have no power to your starter, it will not start. Check the positive battery cable going to the starter and make sure it is tight and not burned.

Why my won't my 2008 Yamaha Rhino 700 start. Has good battery. Cranks over. No codes. Good spark.


If you are only getting 65lbs of compression, remedying that would be my next move!! .. I have seen some run as low as 85lbs..run very poor too.. but never at 65lbs. You should let the engine turn over for about 5 seconds to get compression level.

My four wheeler gets spark and gas to the carb but wont start what else could it be?


Carb could be dirty, float stuck or choke stuck. Pull plugs, crank engine and see if you are getting raw gas in the cylinder(s). If you don't get gas to the cylinders, you won't start. You also could have a flooded carburetor.

04 Polaris predator, I bought used last week. I put a new battery and new carb on it. It doesn't have power, won't start, and no spark with kick starter. Dead. Fuses,wires, look good. Any ideas


Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.

. What steps do I need to do before taking it to shop?


Check the battery, fuse and related connections assuming that it has no power.
If the engine will spin over with the starter button and it will not start then the first thing is make sure it has fuel in the tank, second make sure it has spark on the spark plug, compression test next. Also listen to see if you hear the fuel pump running.

I can't get my atv to start it turns the spark plug is firing and the gas is flowing but it will'nt start


check the compression, REPLACE the spark plug with a new one, clean or have the carb professionally cleaned. compression should be at least or more than 100-110 lbs.

Have put new fuel pump on ,cleaned carb,new plug, gets gas plug fires but won't start, checked compression at98# don't know what else to do .


The battery voltage on a Suzuki I had would drop low enough during cranking with the electric starter motor not allowing the spark to be strong enough to run, the voltage regulator also didn't function correctly once and as the battery voltage dropped during operation engine would start to bog down and cut out due to low voltage for the ignition system.

'94 Timberwolf 250 2X4 starts great when I have battery charger hooked up, coughs, backfires and dies when I unhook the charger. NEW Battery, fully charged, seems to crank well when charger is OFF, but...


Hey Ccp.. A new battery and it did not help the cranking issue?? hhmm... PLEASE take the battery and have the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) checked... just because its new and has voltage does not mean its a "good battery"... It takes AMPERAGE to crank and run your machine.. (*see 35 amp fast charge!!)..Autozone, O'reilly's, a battery shop can check the CCA... once you have MADE SURE the battery is good, then you can proceed to diagnosing the real issue...This is the procedure a professional mechanic takes..so do this first... once you have determined the battery is (good or you got a new one)..and ... once you have the machine running,,WITHOUT a charger hooked up.. time to check the output.. you should get 13.5+ volts at 3000+rpm.. if you are not getting 13.5+ volts, its time for electrical diagnosis...This manual should have all the electrical specifications needed to diagnose your issues...
