    I’ve got a 98 Zr 500 and have been wanting to put aftermarket reeds in it. I can get a set of like new v force reeds and cages from someone for next to nothing that are for a 2003 440 snow pro.

    So I have a fully rebuilt 500 efi setting here and was looking for a complete chassis to put it in. I came across a good deal for a zr500 carb sled. I was wondering what the differences were between the engines. Would a be able to swap engines but run the carbs on my efi engine or are there...

    Hello all, I recently picked up a 2002 500 4x4 automatic. According to the previous owner it would barely rev at all, and break up while doing so. He was messing with the carb but didn't really know what he was doing. I got the quad home and he had swapped the idle and main jet, so it was idling...

    Hey guys Picked up a 2001 Arctic cat 500 4x4 with 600km on it recently and it’s got a few issues. One of the major ones is that the battery won’t hold a charge. I put a brand new battery in which worked for a short time but now I get no power. Wondering if it is the stator? Is there a way of...

    Hey all, so my cat seems like I have to really rev it up for it to start moving. It drives fine once it’s moving, can usually get it to 85km/h or so. Its good in the mud and water. So what I’ve done so far is, new wet clutch, machined housing, new belt, removed one way bearing, new pads, new...

    Tore apart my ol lady's Edge the other day to replace the track and horrid sliders (Check that picture out).

  11. Utility Performance / Technical info
    Alright, start off with the motor, I found an old 02 Artic Cat, with a liquid cooled, Suzuki motor (Suzuki stamped on right hand side of head). The motor was in the bike, but the bike was a mess, not finished. I took it out, changed the drive shafts, and one mount under the gas tank to fit it...

    My zrt has me puzzled. It will start and run on all 3. I can tell by the fact I got it clutched at 5500 and it won't engage if its not running on at least 2. The pto and center cylinder will stay cold for as long as I warm it up. Once I pick up the back and spin the track it will start to get...
