If that is the stock gauge, it probably isn't correct mine was showing 45 psi and when I put another one I had in the shop, it was more like 25 psi.

Go ahead and change your plugs (cheapest 1st) but I've never heard of plugs getting hot and not working. 

Fuel pumps and ignition coils usually. Keep us informed on how the plug change goes.

Yes.. i also turned the fuel pressure down to about 50-52 psi.. it wasn't running rich.. air/fuel gauge is running at about 14-14.5 warm..I took it riding the other day for about 6-8 hours and i had to wait for it to start a few times that morning but after that it hasn't don't it anymore.. I don't know for sure but I think it's was because i had it very very rich before and now I got it running pretty go now..

Glad you figured it out. At the end of the season last year Mine was dieing on me when coming off throttle from time to time. Then it didn't want to start afterward. I found oil in the intake and on the intake sensors. Also found a suspect air leak in a cracked intake rubber plug.  Cleaned the sensors and filled the plug with rtv and is running great. Keep an eye on rubber parts. They are always cracking.

      We just bought a used 2017 American Landmaster TW450. No hour meter that I can find, so not sure exactly how much it has been used. 
      The first 2 days we had it, the starter was a little sketchy, but it started after 2-3 tries. Sometimes when turning the key, we would hear a loud metal "clink" sound. Like the starter made contact, but didn't have enough power to turn. 
      THIS MORNING... Turning the key, we hear a single click sound. That's it. Even with a new battery, the starter is still doing the same thing. Both batteries (old and new) were reading 12.8 volts on volt meter. So I'm wondering what else could be going on? Any ideas on what to look for would be greatly appreciated...
      Thank you!

      We all know summer is hot inside the cabs of our SXS. So I've rigged up a couple of fans to help cool down the cab.
      I didn't want to drill the fan's "support rails" into the ROPS (Roll Over Protection System), aka roll bars. So I used water clamps to hold them in place. 
      I just need to replace the wires I ran with bigger gauge. Then finish the wiring to switches, relays, and battery. But the hardest part. The actual mounting of the fans is complete. Also just in case anyone plans on doing this. I may have to only use 1 fan in the middle instead on 2. Due the the draw on the battery.
      The fans are 12", 12V 80W. So I'm figured they were 6.7 amps apiece. Used the WAVe formula to get unknown values Watts=Amps*Volts then solve for unknown. I know the watts and volts from sticker on fan. So just used above formula to get amps. So a 7 amp fuse should be OK and a 10 amp fuse will be good. 
      So pulling 14 amps from the battery all day may be too much for the charging system to keep up with. And I haven't even installed the radio yet. So I will have to test and let you know.
      See pics below.

      Good morning folks I have a 2009 ranger 700 XP that will not start. It’s not getting power 12 votes to the fuel pump or the coil. The code that shows up is 4341. installed a brand new ECU And still no power to the Coil or and fuel pump.. All of the fuses are good and all the relays are good when I tested the wire going to the fuel pump it shows 4 Amps. Ran a hot wire to the fuel pump and it works fine. The ECU I installed is part number 4011599. Also the speedometer goes to 70 mph when I switch it on and then drops to 40 mph and back-and-forth. I have checked the ignition switch and all the connections for the ECU and the Coil. Any help will be appreciated.
