OK Good news and bad news Good news I got it to turn over and it fired
eek so that is great The lights and switches work ( HI and low beam) the neutral and reverse lights work Now the bad news The tail light lens is broken:sad also both choke and throttle cables are frozen But the carb needs a good cleaning so they can soak at the same time, I do not think the battery is going to hold a charge so will look for a used one The tires are bad and will not hold air but I can get tubes and they might last for awhile Can anyone help me with someplace to find used ATV tires ?
The chain and sprockets look OK just need a good cleaning and lubing. The muffler is broken off but it is there and not to rusted out so I think I can weld it back up The outer part of the muffler has a few spots that are rusted threw but I can skin that and patch it up I want to thank ya for the links for the manuals they will be a big BIG help and saved me hrs of searching I think the air cleaner is a lost cause but maybe not So the plan is to get the tank off and a good cleaning ( I do not see any rust in it ) Pull the carb and clean it and get the cables freed up so I can run if for a bit and see if there is anything else that I need to look at runt it threw the gears to make sure nothing is broken Then look into what to spend on what I do think I got lucky all the fenders are in great shape no cracks or broken parts ( except the tail light) even the flaps are good The racks are good no dents or bends so a good cleaning and some paint and there good So a few things like how do you start a thread?? I would like to post as I go along for a cheep bargain barn 200d fortrax restore and any ideas would be great as I go along thanks
