  • I have a 2005 A/C 650V2 that while riding I lost all power. All fuses, cdi, battery are good. I am unable to readily check the ignition switch is it is a sealed unit but does feel good when turning. The unit is low miles and has been taken care of. I'm really ticked that I am having such a problem. Any ideas on what I should try or look at?
  • hi, all, i have a kids generic atv, make unknown. was running but has stopped. it tries to run while the starter button is pressed, but stops instantly as you release. there is no ignition, only the stop button. but there is a sealed connection box with four wires going into it, but iot has and ariel cable running from the box?..... if any body has a clue that would be great. thanks. a struggling dad. :) its the only thing that keeps my kids happy.
  • Can anyone tell me where the oil filter is located on a 1987 Honda 250 Fourtrax?
  • I cannot find the location of the spark plug on a 1999 Suzuki 500 Quadrunner. Is it under a cover / in an odd location?
