620 Transmission Problem

I am posting this for a friend who has a 620. He was riding in the neighborhood and came up on sand. He panicked and he "thinks" may have downshifted too many gears. The problem is when the bike is in neutral the front sprocket is "clicking" and the chain jumps. This is not enough to move the bike though. There is noise inside the tranny like gears trying to mesh when it happens or something loose in the box. I put it in gear and went 6 feet and it locked up so you can't even ride it. There is vibration thru the clutch handle when this is happening. I also ran it thru all the gears with the clutch disengaged and it shifted thru the gears like they are all there. This bike has less than 1000 miles on it. Thanks for any advice.

Have you looked at the countershaft sprocket? Also check the chain for kinks... Countershaft sprockets bend and chains stretch or bend side to side, Me thinks you got ^^^^ The gear boxes are almost over built on the 620's It would be hard to damage them. You might also check the belt timing as you might have spit a belt off, Or forced it to hop a tooth. Pulling the timing belt covers is easy. The timing marks are marked on the cases and pullies. Just line them up with motor in top dead center. The older monsters had bad countershaft bearing that would fail. Great way to check for internal damage is to drain the oil and check the pre-screen. Good Luck

1995 jeep wrangler wont go in gear

Actually, in some cases, the transmission may have a problem shifting only sometimes, if your TPS, VSS, or any solenoid on the transmission is going bad. an intermittent problem could be the case; and sometimes, it's just a loose wire.

Can a rm 125 go on the sand

Yes - you can run this bike on the sand but a few words of warning: Sand is extremely hard on any bike. I am going to assume you are talking about deep sand - like beach sand. All sand is not the same - some is not bad to ride in (like dunes) but sand like beach sand can be very deep and very, very hard to ride in.

Sand robs so much power from any bike that it is extremely hard on the engine and drive train. For those that race in the sand, their motors are typically rebuilt before each event and are pretty much shot afterwards. Also - your tires, brakes, chain and sprockets need to be in good condition. Sand is very hard on all of these components and has a way of getting into every bearing and seal on the bike.

I would not recommend riding in the sand to anyone that can not maintain their own equipment. If you do ride in the sand without maintaining the bike it can be pretty badly damaged pretty quickly - the sand can get into all of the suspension and wheel bearings, brakes, chain, etc. and slowly destroy them. It also wears components that usually don't get worn - like the frame, swingarm and even the engine cases. Careful maintenance, cleaning and inspection is critical to keeping these bikes running and in good shape.

If you choose do do this, make sure your radiator is clean and full of good coolant, your gearbox is full of good quality oil, your air filter is clean, your chain is snug (oiled too - don't use heavy chain lube) and your tires are in good shape and filled with at least 12 PSI (hard tires for soft ground, soft tires for hard ground).

I hope this helped.

Ride on will not start. B&S motor.

Logic would dictate that the starter motor is burning out, drawing far too much current, and that the current overheated the solenoid and toasted it. Now the starter is almost a short circuit and while it spins it has no power. A spendy part to be sure. Perhaps you can find a used one from your friendly neighborhood repair guy.
A compression release is found on old diesel's, but not on gas engines.
Starters can fail from cranking on them for extended periods. They are designed to handle short periods of use, maybe 20 seconds on followed by several minutes (like 15) off. If you have had starting problems and kept cranking to get it going that would explain the fried starter.

    ATK 700 Intimidator

    I've seen both the 620 and the 700. My son-in-law had a chance to ride the 620 2 years ago at Jawbone. He rides a CR500 and was VERY impressed with the 620. I went on an ATK ride a year ago and Frank brought a 700 along. A couple guys rode it on the beach before I got there but no one rode it after we got into riding. It looks very nice. Frank White says the 500 is the play bike the 620 is the race bike and the 700 is for fat guys to climb hills with!,,
