I just purchased a used adly four wheeler. It starts and runs well but won't move. What am I doing wrong?


you didn't state whether it's an auto or manual clutch---if it's auto,
I would remove the side cover and see if the clutch spins when you give it gas.

It has been sitting or 3 months and won't start and it is a kick start Suzuki 4 wheeler and it was running great 3 months ago but this cold whether I think is what the problem is .


Hi erik
My first point of call would be to clean the spark plug, it could have gotten corroded while the bike has been standing. Hope this helps.

Four wheeler wont start. it just clicks


if the 4-wheeler is just clicking when you try and start -- this is a good indicator that the voltage is not high enough to activate the starter,, and the sound that you hear is the solenoid clicking.
try and jump the four wheeler battery with a car battery,, this should give it the power it needs to turn over. as soon as you have the ATV running - ride it around for awhile and let it run and charge the battery, there is also a chance that the battery is going bad and it may be time to buy a new one,, also make sure the generator on the ATV is charging the battery at a voltage of 13.6 to 14.4 volts DC. IF jumping the battery still does not start the machine and it still just 'clicks',, then the solenoid itself could be at fault -- replace it and then try and start..
(( use a bench charger to fully charge the battery and re-install into the ATV and you should be back on the trail in no time at all )).

My battery seems to need to be recharged constantly. is this a problem common to the 2005 custom sportster? also, the battery is in a very difficult position to jump off or charge without pulling it from...


Had the same problem in my four wheeler. checked water level in the battery and it was dry. this was from overcharging. Use distilled water if thats the case for you. Other possibility is that charging system on the bike isnt putting out. Once you get it running, when you rev it up the headlight should get a little brighter. Best way to test is with volt meter, voltage should exceed 13.5 volts, minimum. Probably over 14.

My kx100 kickstart won't work


have a look at the clutch cable there may be far to much slack on it so your not fully disengaging the clutch thats why the bike pulls forwards

2005 250 f 65 kicks to start


Several things can cause the problem. First, spring for a new spark plug. The stock plug is NGK CR8E. Now the plug is eliminated as a problem. Next, pull the slide out of the throat of the carb. Now remove the jet needle. Put the needle clip on the 4th notch, (this is the stock setting). Use only premium gas. Next, follow the starting instructions below.

There is a proper way to start the engine. Four controls are on your bike to assist in starting.
  • The choke, used when the engine is cold. Pull the red knob for choke.
  • The " Hot Start " Lever, used when the engine is hot. Pull the lever to lean the fuel mix when the engine has been running.
  • The de-compression lever, always used.
  • The throttle, used to prime the cylinder.
Don't kick, instead, push the kick lever downward. You will feel the back pressure as the piston is going upward on the compression stroke to the point the pressure is great enough that the kick lever "locks up". You are very close to TDC. NOW, pull in the de-compression lever. Push the kick lever a little bit more to get the piston past TDC. Give the throttle a 1/4 turn then let it snap closed. A diaphragm in the carb gives a shot of gas when this is done. DO NOT do this multiple times because you will flood the engine. Leave the throttle closed when kicking. Release the de-compression lever and give a strong kick through the full sweep of the kick start lever. Quickly get your foot off the kick lever at the end of the kick to avoid any chance of "kickback" from a backfire. It can be very painful, and can even break a leg. I am serious about that. Repeat the process (but without the throttle priming), until the bike starts. A good battery and clean air filter will also aid in starting.

This will likely tame the beast for you. Please rate this answer. Thanks!
