Ive got an '87 Mojave, yeah, first year. i read the latest articles and seems like the same bike, well, good news is mine is 12 almost 13 years old and running strong and looking great. My question is, do your newer models have a problem with your headlight going dim when bike is idling? seems that the stator isnt wound enough. if your model doesnt have this problem, please tell me, ill probably pick up your stator and put it on mine, if it fits. Thanks guys.
I have a question. WHile riding my buddies 91 Mohave, I noticed his shift lever was about a whole foot away from the peg. I literally had to move my foot forward off of the peg to shift. Is this normal? I would not think so, but my buddy seemed to think he had the stock shifter. Any commments?
That doesnt sound safe, or right. i think he may have an aftermarket or other models shifter on it, or else you have way too small a foot size, but guessing that you are over 12 years old, i woild think that its been bent or maybe just someone swaped it out with the correct one. did he buy it new? mine is perfect, ive got a size 10 shoe/boot, and it contacts under the ball of my foot, or behind the toes when up shifting. maybe look into a replacement, because it shouldnt be more than 25 dollars. good luck, ride careful.
i ride a Blaster & the light does the same thing your Mojave does. i think this is normal 4 pretty much all quads. i have a friend that rides a '94 Mojave. his light works but i don't no if dims durning idole. he in doing a break down right now. he in now in the process of getting it back together. the clutch was shot & a few gears had missing teeth. i guess he can't complain. he got it 4 only $900.
Someone may correct me if I am wrong but I believe the reason your guys' lights flicker is that Mojaves, Banshees, Blasters etc. use AC(Alternating Current) Lighting systems as opposed to DC(Direct Current). With an AC system the brightness of the lights varies directly with the RPM of the motor. Quads without batteries and/or alternators, such as the ones I listed, use the AC system. My Warrior for example, uses a battery with a DC lighting coil, thus my lights don't flicker at all. I have seen quads with batteries use an AC system though, such as the Suzuki Quadrunner 160. Anyway, someone can correct me if I am wrong.
