RING IN SPRING
Spring is around the corner and you know what that means? It’s time to pull the ATVs or Dirt bikes out of the garage and try to start them up. What? It won’t start? Don’t worry, we have the parts that you need!
Unlike other ATV and Dirt Bike Importers, we actually have replacement and performance parts that you need.
We know, "the dealer you bought it from won’t call you back or help you", but we will. We stock hundreds of parts for off-brand ATVs, Dirt Bikes, Pocket Bikes, Scooters, Go Carts and more.
- So let’s start with the basics of maintenance: fuel and spark. We recommend a good maintenance program to keep your recreational vehicle running great year after year. First, install a new plug, new air filter, new fuel filter and change the oil. We sell a starter kit with an NGK plug, Performance Air Filter , Fuel Filter and Castrol GO ATV Easy Start Oil for under $50.00. The first thing we need to check is do you have spark? Without spark, all the fresh gas and new plugs will leave you with the same thing, a BIKE THAT WONT START!
- So, how do you check for spark? You can buy a spark plug checker at a local automotive shop, or you can do it the old fashioned way. Remove the spark plug and plug the coil back to the top of the plug so that you can see the end of the plug that screws into the engine. Now hold the plug against the frame to ground it, make sure that you have metal to metal connection. Now turn the engine over, do you see a spark? Did you feel the spark? If you felt the spark, bad news it hurts but good news your CDI , coil and magneto are not the problem. If you didn’t see a spark you are looking most commonly at the CDI. The CDI is the "Capacitive Discharge Ignition" module that controls spark and timing. We have them for hundreds of models so go to www.extrememotorsales.com/parts.htm and find the one that matches your atv.
- Next lets look at fuel. Did you drain the fuel out before you let the atv sit? An easy way to check fuel is to locate the carburetor. At the very bottom of the carburetor you will see a flat screw and a rubber hose . That flat screw drains the bowl of the carburetor and that hose is where the gas will go once you open that screw. Get a clear, empty container and open the screw. Check the gas color, is it clear, yellow or dark brown? If it is anything but clear you have old stale gas and it needs to be drained out of the tank. If nothing comes out at all and you are sure that the gas tank is full and the petcock (fuel Switch) is open then your carburetor is clogged. We recommend getting a can of Carburetor Cleaner, removing the air filter from the back of the carburetor and spray small short bursts while turning the ignition. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU PLACE YOUR VEHICLE ON BLOCKS OR ON A JACK BEFORE DOING THIS! Repeat this step until your vehicle starts on its own without the Carburetor cleaner. If you still cannot get your vehicle to start you will have to rebuild your carburetor or we sell brand new carburetors starting at $35.00.
