If it is the same as most of the carbs on our buggys, after you hook it up to power the needle should extend. The choke is electric on these buggies. There is a fuel enrichment circuit that gets cut off once the choke warms up. The circuit is interrupted by a plunger that extends out of the choke w...

Although there are significant differences in 2-stroke header pipes, I don't think the muffler is that different. The new muffler on the Yerf is most likely starving the engine due to increased flow. You could try running with the choke unplugged (always rich) to see if it helps. This would verify t...

Just openning up your exhaust does not guarantee better performance. There is a balance between air and fuel delivery to exhaust. On another forum I asked why a member wanted to make his exhaust louder - He never responded, but I assume he equates noise with speed... You should check your spark plug...

There is no such thing as a free lunch. If the thing is properly jetted there is no excess vapor to store. On the other hand it has to be at least as effective as wrapping magnets around the fuel line to straighten the molecules and putting the tornado inducer in the air stream! Let me see if I und...

i did an ohm test across the two leads and got nothing. no read out at all. I tested the meter before begining. Just to be sure you did say this should be a complete circuit, right so i should get a beep or read at least zero? If so i think i found my problem :) Correct - The pickup is a winding th...

I played around with dry lead acid, nickel cadmium, zinc air, nickel metal hydride and lithium-ion technologies in business and hobby, but never got into larger capacity battery technologies. The higher end RVs and boats are now using AGM cells with specialized chargers. They're still pretty spendy,...

AGM batteries usually require a different type of charger than typical wet plate batteries. What about the sealed batteries that come stock on most of these Chinese buggies?

Thanks so much for the quick responses. I have a question regarding the OHM test on the 250xt pickup wire. I believe if i traced the blue wire correctly it comes out of the case and goes to a connector and changes to a blue/white wire and then runs into a connector to the CDI. If this is correct i ...

Thanks for all the info. I'm in Austin, TX. I found a local dealer for Carters. A little more than I'm authorized to spend though. I'm going to go by the dealer and check the Carters out and see if I can join a local riding group. Maybe they have a trustworthy mechanic that can check out a used mac...

Follow the accelerator cable to the carburetor. You should see a set screw that rests against a plate when the the pedal is not depressed - This is the idle adjustment. Increase the number of CW turns to raise idle.

I do not know how Baja's frames hold up vs. TJ, but I think the Howhit engine that is in the Baja's has better performance due to the valving in the head. The Crossfire 150R seems to be built better than the Reaction and both share the same engine. If the Crossfire does not have reverse, it is an ol...

I'd like to know how much those tracks cost.... I've seen similar ones before by http://www.litefootatv.com , but those suckers are $4,000+ for a set of 4! :shock: Anyway, regarding the power... If they are anything like the Litefoot ones then there's a reduction gear instead the drive tracks to ge...

PGHRUBY ... IS SHORTING OUT THE LEADS CONNECTING ONE TO THE OTHER (TOUCHING/FASTENED TOGETHER)? P.S. NO KIDS ------- JUST CAUTION WITH THE BEER CONSUMPTION .HEHE!

1. Usually shorting the leads to the brake safety switch will bypass it. If you have kids, I would advise keeping the safety in place to avoid running them over if the buggy surges at startup. 2. Any keyed switch will work for the ignition. If you wish to integrate starting into the switch, an autom...

Take both of the karts for a ride if they are close enough to you to do so. Make your choice then have Glade get you a new one for cheaper than the one this guy is quoting you on. Either that or make the guy an offer, if he won't sell at that price move on. My 2 cents, Chris I will not waste someon...

when I changed the 12g sliders, I cleaned the ramps on the variator, took the belt off (looked OK), wiped the pulleys inside and out with a rag and and some brake parts cleaner to remove any rubber or anything that would get caught, but it didnt change with the new sliders... I am going to ride the...

Just because you do not have a local Joyner dealer does not mean that a machine cannot be shipped right to you. I can get you new machine for less than the used one that you have mentioned. I just cannot believe the price he quoted you for that 07. Glade I do appreciate the offer, but I am not budg...

There seem to be alot of joyners at auction these days. Joyner is missing out on my market. The closest dealers are 400 miles away in OR or 800 miles away in ID. Not that Yerf support exists, but they seem to be simpler and GY6 parts can be found all over. No one wants to set up shop here: http://w...

what was this topic about? :? oh yes a member comparing 250cc buggy the bottom line is you have to see them, set in them, and test them for a good comparision. I'm leaning toward the Joyner if the price goes down to something reasonable. Otherwise, I am quite content with my Yerfs. I have always pr...
