low oil sensor does work
88 fourtrax 300. how much oil does it hold anyways????
i had noticed a little metal on metal sound while riding, and when going up hill thru a trail getting on it, it would cut out and lose power. and then it finally lost all the power and was ideling kinda high but when i hit the throttle it would die out and kinda just idle with short revs.
i though it was carb related, got to spraying carb cleaner around, after a few mins of sitting it went back to normal. okay, went up that same hill, happend again. so i went to check the oil, barely hitting the dip stick (doh) so i put some more in, problem went away immediately, no more cutting out on the hill.
i just found it kinda cool that it wont let me just blow the motor with running it dry, the oil light did not come on tho.
so how much is it supposed to have in it anyways??? i put 1.5 quarts in at first (thought thats what it held) added another half and its half way on the dip stick.
