I am having trouble with the idle adjustment on my 2001 300 kaw atv. Do I turn the adj all the way in and then turn it out so many turns or where do I start???? Thanks

I would just turn it in a little bit ( not all the way ) -- try and get the ATV to idle by turning the idle screw about a 1/4 turn at a time,, and when you reach a high idle point - just back it off a tad.
I have also seen where the idle screw starts to 'pit out' the carb slide and will not adjust very well -- if you remove the top off the carb and pull the slide out you will see where the pin rides -- look and see if it could be starting to get pitted out,, if it is, then I would replace the slide with a new one --- ( NOTE: I have had some luck using a file to smooth the pit out,, but I think of this as a 'backyard' fix and it works for where I am in the middle of nowhere Alaska, where parts are hard to get ).

The pull cord on my jiffy ice auger model 30 has broke and I need a new one. I do not need a new ice aguer just the pull cord which is located at the top.

if you just need the cord -- most hardware stores do carry replacement cord ( sold by the foot ),, if you look in the chainsaw department you should be able to find the size that you need. as soon as you have the cord you can re spool the winding unit and this will restore the pull start function.
you can also buy the cord at your local lawn and garden shops,snowmobile shops or chainsaw shops.
if you have any further questions about this problem -- please feel free to ask,

My 2005 predator is making a weird grinding noise. It runs fine and goes into every gear good. It's a little slow on start up. And just when i let off the gas it makes a noise like a chain hitting the case...

It kind of sounds like ignition or timeing knock. Try running ethinol free gas if it's available or changing the octane fuel you are useing. If that doesn't help have a service tech check it out.

Good luck.

1994 honda goldwing 1500 se starting problems

How is your battery? Sure sounds like it's too weak to turn over the starter.

Assuming that it always started just fine and then the battery is the problem. Many times it slows down gradually--like it turns over slower and slower until the battery finally has no power.

Try charging it.

Pullcord violently retracting on Craftsman lawnmower

It is possible that the 'dogs' that engage the crankhaft were stuck in the out (engaged position). Once the engine started, it wound the rope in the opposite direction until the dogs slipped and retracted. Romve the top cover that includes the pull start unit. Check for smooth and sticky free operation while pulling on the cord. Try using a very light oil to lube if nessesary.

Put atv in water

If it is what I think it is, drain the whole motor. Oil, coolant, fuel, all of it take the plugs out and once the motor is clean, dry fire the motor (turn the key or use the pull cord) without the plugs in and that should get most of the water out of the cylinders.

Go through the electrical system and check for shorts, bad fuses and your battery, if there is one, should be changed

Water build up in the starter & Reqoil case of my Polaris ATV

Your drain plugs should be visable, if they exist, on the lowest point of the body of the device. If you can't readily see them, consider drying out the entire unit with a hair dryer and a little patience in drying the entire unit. From then on, I would consider evaluating the depth of water before entering. After all, the unit may not be amphibious, which sounds like your intended use!
Also, the battery may be affected by the extreme cold, as they often are, leaving a different approach to this problem. Good Luck!
