Initial Start Up Procedure

Recommended Posts

Im about 3-4 more weeks on my engine. (Im counting one week to re install into frame since thats how long it took me to take it out) What should i do when i first start it up? I know not go over 3/4 throttle.

Any other tips or tricks?

Kawasaki single cylinder 286 cc. The usable compression range is like 114 psi to 168 psi, i believe. What should i shoot for?

Other than just to take it easy, there's not much you can do. Everything is dependent on how well it was assembled. Don't get it too hot, don't over rev, don't run it too long. Just short easy trips, till you're sure everything is fixed, and running normal. Check for leaks, if everything looks good, then I wouldn't get above half throttle for awhile. Of course that's a lot of weight for a small motor to carry. So maybe three fourths throttle, but no more for at least fifty miles. Although full throttle won't usually hurt one of these, since it's probably got a rev limiter, it's never going to be good for it. No heavy loads in the bed, or pulling a trailer, for the first few trips. I'm assuming it has a speed limiter, and/or a governor on it. If that's the case, you should be good on the break in after a couple dozen trips around the farm. Except for high rpm revs, which are never good. The rest such as driving on the street, should be okay. I think street driving at slow, to medium speeds would actually speed up the break in.

   The compression isn't adjustable, so just be happy if it's in acceptable range. With new rings and such, I'd expect it to be up there, but certainly not at, maximum.

      Hello everyone.
      Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
      All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
      The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.

      So i have a 2011 EFI 700. the SxS will crank right up everytime without any issues. If i let it run or ride it for about 10 mins it will shut off and then it may turn on if i am lucky but most time i have to let it sit for like 3 hours and then it will run again. i have done the following
      -New fuel filter
      -New injector
      -New spark plug
      -New coil pack and plug wire
      -New air filter
       
      Also could i get a grizzly 660 engine and put in it or would it not work.

      Very new to any forum. Haha We have an 09 R2 joyner renegade 800cc. We are unable to start it. It has been sitting for a few seasons. It has spark(new plugs), it get gas, fuel pump works(new), fan comes on on initial key turn, sounds like system doing its check. It's turning over but nothing.  Clean fuel, gas tank cleaned, fuel going through all the lines. Relays and fuses checked and pulled and reseated. New battery even. Thanks yall.

      2019 Coleman Outfitter 550, 160-ish hours. Was driving it slowly and it just slowed down and died. Won't start. Pops once as soon as I start cranking and that's it. I have great blue white spark on the spark tester, jumps 1/2". Changed injector, no joy. Changed plugs to new several times, no joy. Pulled injector power wire and tried ether through air intake after removing air filters- nothing! I do notice if I put my hand over the air intake where the filter goes, I get pressure  pushing back at me. Jumped time? Stuck valve? Is there a decompressor on this that could be malfunc?
       
      This is the one I've had that was inop for months and months while Coleman tried to find someone to fix it. Warranty is long expired now. I'll never have anything good to say about this thing.
