Got the muffler welded up. Tested it with air and no leaks. My dealer must have replaced the zip tie I used on the intake hose because it is one of the heavier duty wide ones. I donít think it is my problem but I am replacing it with a hose clamp. Iíll then put the muffler on and see if itís backfiring. I donít have any starting fluid the test the intake system, is there anything else I can use? I looked over it really well especially the boot from the air box to the engine and I donít see any obvious cracks.

Iíll pick up some starting fluid tomorrow and test the intake system. Is there anything else I can check? I can go riding on Wednesday or Thursday to test it out. Maybe the hose clamp fixed it.

You can also use a propane torch, un-lit of course, to check for vacuum leaks.

2012 550 Problems - Backfiring, Winch not coming in

Sprayed all the connections and tubing on the intake system with starting fluid. Also from the throttle body to the cylinder and the engine sound didnít change. I gave it about half throttle and let off suddenly and I am still hearing a small pop. Anything else I can check? I put a fresh spark plug in after the rebuild. Made sure all clamps are tight. Could it be a sensor or something?

Havenít checked the TPS. I did a search and the IAC is the Idle air control right? How do I go about resetting that?

I hooked that battery up to the atv and it wouldnít start, just made that buzzing sound when the battery is dead. I cleaned off the grease and tried it again and same thing. I put my old battery back in (it read 11.xx Volts) and I jump started it and the atv started up. Iím going to try to charge the kimpex battery to 12.7V, and try that out. I donít think itís holding a charge either.

When I was trying to start the atv with the kimpex battery it displayed ďvoltĒ on my dash, and I got my gauges back. When I put the original battery back on I got my gauges back as well.
