Hi, Just bought this ATV online from Parnus (BC, Canada). And had a slight setback at first getting it started. Need to find the "sweet spot" in the chock setting. Got that figured out and it ran well for about 2 days. Then:
1. When riding it it would just die. Like it ran out of gas. It would turn over some and at first start ok then go a few feet and die again. Then nothing. It was as if the battery was dead and it would not turn over. So recharged the battery and it will turn over for about a minute. Then noting and the battery dies again. When it is running at few seconds there is a "rat-at-tat tat" sound coming from the engine (not sure from where)
So far I have:
- charged the battery
- Change the plug from the piece of Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word Spam wordSpam word * to new NGK
- check the wiring some (not good at all using a multimeter)
- took the cover off and look at the Stator. No visible signs that it is burnt out, but not sure. There was a wierd burning small the first couple of time we where on the ATV that I could not see where it was coming from so might have be that.
I don't really know how to test the Stator, Starter, rectifier or CDI. I don't even see where the CDI is on the ATV????
Also there was a "cracking" sound coming from the motor after about the 3 time it was ridin. I read that this can happen and just tight the head cover (4 bolts) and that would fix it. I read that it is comin for the bolts to be loose at first and the compression escape causing the noice. but once the engin heats up the noise disappears and that was was going on with our. I tighten up the bolts, but have not had the ATV running long enough to see if that fixed it.
If some one can tell me what else to look for that would be great. I have an 8 year boy who is going nuts waiting to ride it lol...
Any advice would be much appreciated. Sorry for long post.
