My Quad only used 61 hours and not used much 612 kms over 2 years apparently loss of oil shooting blues,no rough sound . Oil light came on,immediately started shootin blue and very low oil ,. Had checked a few weeks earlier but hadnt used it for even 1 hour since checking. Local dealer says after a leak test no apparent reason for oil to have left other than neglect and doesnt think warranty would cover if I can locate proof of what I thought was a 3 year period of warranty. Purchased in Oct 2006 seldom used, changed oil at 10-15 hours at start, but not since. Local dealer estinmated 1650.00 to reb uild motor. Ridiculous for 61 hours of old man usage. Is it out of the question to do the work myself this winter with a service manual. They cant see any other rerason other than no oil and popwssible ring damage
Re: Blowin blue with V twin Quad with only 61 hours
I would put more oil in it and would ride the bike and see if the rings will unstick. Just keep a eye on the oil when running it!!! If this doesn't work then a good chance you will need to rebuild the top end.

Check power at the CDI box. What year is the v-twin? Some are controlled with a crank sensor and earlier ones have a magneto type setup (one is off a flywheel the other is off the same setup that charges your battery) a quick test is not always by the voltage the coil puts out. some meters can't read fast enough so by the time is sees peak voltage is already is back to 0. Take your spark plug out. stick it back into the coil wire and put the base of it against the cylinder head where you can see the tip. Crank the motor over and watch for a bright blue/ white spark. Be carefull, it will give you a shock you never had before. I personally use a rag and hold it by the rubber boot on the end of the coil wire... It needs to be against the engine for any spark to happen too!
HELLO; Yes you will need a filter located lower left side behind the peg ,you'll see a cover thats about an inch and a half wide with three allen head bolts, pull out the filter and when you replace it make sure the hole is towards the engine. Now about oil there are several ideas on this so heres my ( 2 cents ) I repair quads and have for several years,you have a quad that has a wet clutch if it is an older one and semi automatic so you don't want to use syn. oil as this will wear out your clutch sooner, I would recomend, yamalube,it will cost up to $5.00 a qt. but you only need two and a quarter qts. to fill your quad. GOOD LUCK, and remember you must be fast, because I was haulin *** when I passed you!
Just had same problem. Take carbs off and clean all jets and bowl. Be carful front and rear carb have different sized jets. When you put quad back together put entire airbox together even the cover. This quad will backfire unless air box is complete. I bet you anything your carb is full of trash.
