BUT i went around and tested othe good batterys in our vehicals and im...

    yeah im thinking the same thing. im terrible with electricle. I guess ive been avoiding it since it was fine before i put the new cams in. is there a way to test the starter? The battery is good off one of my other quads so im thinking its not the battery but who knows. I have 4 4 stroke and 2...

    Yeah it pulls over fine with the plug out and cranks fine. so heres a recap of what happened: I got the quad and it had a bad starter. It came with a new starter. i put it on and it was fine. Noticed it was running like crap. would idle great but bogged like crazy at 1/4 throttle. Found the...

    ok will do. I've been working on 4 strokes for years and I've never dealt with this before. the only other thing besides valve train is battery or starter. But the fact that its a bear to pull makes me think its valves somehow. The compression lever is doing its job and i can see it liftinng the...

    thanks it pulls over easy with the plug out and cranks easy. it doesnt feel like anything's binding thats making it hard to pull over. you can feel the pressure from the compression and its like its struggling to get past it. I did pull the cam gear off though and checked for play in the front...

    Well im still at it! Im not sure how but i managed to get some play inn the camshaft with the tensioner on but its still not right!

    hello h hello how did you go about getting the guide back in the keeper. Im pretty sure this is whats going on. i cant get the cam gear on the camshaft because theres not enough slack in the chain even with the tensioner out. Thanks.

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Ok thanks. So im thinking this is my problem. mine is tight even with the tensioner out. in order to get the gear on i actually had to push up on the gear to get it on. mine was very difficult to put on. Ive never had this problem before and this is the first polaris I've done. Shoulve realized...

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Thanks for the responses guys. i will be looking into this today. im thinking it has something to do with the timing chain. When you guys put on the cam gear was it difficult or should it go right on with the tensioner released?

    ATV Repair and Maintenance
    Thanks this would explain it. i will be checking it tonight. Im thinking it has to be something with the timing chain. It seems like a large amount of stress on the camshaft if its that tight without the tensioner on.

    So went back in a checked the compression ball on the camshsft and it is good. the ball is all the way out at resting position. one thing i did notice though is that the timing chain is really tight and i actually had a hard time getting the sprocket on the cam even with the tensioner out. is...
