Ride Update


Recommended Posts

Well it has been a while since I had a good ride.

I was at my father n laws in Ojos Negro Baja Mexico. I took the kids on a tour of about 150 miles of the Baja 500 course. We had a blast and the trooper performed awesome.

I had some recent problems and replaced the drive shaft and some tranny parts along with some clutch parts and figured while I had the motor and tranny out I would replace the skid plate with heavy duty aluminum which is needed for where I ride in the baja with all the rocks.

During the last few weeks I also got to take the T4 to Jacume in Baja Califonia for pre running the CODE race. Again great results also added an Intercomm system which really made things more fun since we could chat the entire time, plus listen to music also.

Looking to do a few more things now finally going to add fender well extenders since I have the bigger tires I ate a lot of dust and small rocks in Jacume.

Amber light is operational for the pre running.

Replacing side mirrors and adding a 17" rear view mirror.

Still need to do shocks.

Recently learned lesson: buy your shocks slightly longer than needed and put limit straps on to hold them back to proper length, If you haven't done anything to your shock yet, you have probably heard the nasty little clunk as the the shock top out, I had to give up some travel to add limit straps to mine, but it got rid of the clunk, for the most part. Went for a ride last yesterday where I usually have lots of clunky and had very little, also made for a smoother ride.

      I could really use some help identifying some disconnected components on a Yard Sport YS400. The first part is this pipe, which comes out of the exhaust port area or the cylinder. It looks like it had a piece of rubber hose on it, but the hose is gone, and I have no idea what it was previously connected to.

      The second item is this vacuum valve looking thing.  Again only one line is still attached.  What is it's function and what other lines should be connected to it?

      The last thing is this hose, which exits the side top of the fuel tank (not the fuel line hose) but is not connected to anything

       
      Any help the community could provide would be greatly appreciated.  This UTV belongs to a friend, and I am trying to help him get it running correctly for his kids.

      After 10 hours of use, my machine had developed a low speed brake squeal. I removed the brake assembly and discovered that everything was put together dry. Not even lubrication on the caliper pins. After lubricating and reassembly, the squeal has disappeared. I will do the other three wheels today. Also, all grease fittings were under-greased (if at all) based on the amount of grease filled before they purged. This includes the drivelines. Next- I found many screws which were loose and/or stripped. I was able to tighten or fix them with my tap and die set. The lower a-arms on the front do not have grease zerks. I will remove the arms and install some. I guess I’m not surprised or even disappointed. These are just things that should be looked at on any machine. One thing I am pissed about though, is this “weld from hell” on the front . Totally unacceptable. For sure there will be water entry and eventual internal rust. 
      (see photo) I will fix it. I did an oil and filter change which some of you will say was not necessary. But break-in time is when you are most likely to have contamination from production and initial wear-in. BTW there was some metal in the filter. Cheap insurance to change often. Engine access is very difficult on this machine compared to other  models. You have to remove lots of stuff to get to it. But I still like the machine very much, and I’m having a ball with it. Future plans include lights, cab enclosure and heater. Winters are long in Northern Michigan.

      While adjusting my suspension, I noticed an unused two wire connector on each side just hanging loose. Anyone know what they are? Nothing in the manual about them.

      Has anyone found a cargo cover for an AXIS 500?

      Put a new carb on the 500 to replace the leaking OE one.  Machine idles fine and mid and top end runs great.  It tends to have a hesitation right from the start - bottom end.   Thinking it may be the air/fuel screw??  I didn't do anything with the carb out of the box and is it direct replacement for my machine.  Of interest is the manual choke doesn't seem to work very good now.... wonder is it getting too much air?
       
      Any help appreciated!
