    AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    Won’t even start back up, turns over but no start. It stalls out and then won’t restart. But like I said if I wait 20-30 minutes it’ll start up perfect.

    AX5 Clutch Overhaul

    Only ran about 5 minutes and then shuts off and won’t restart. Wait about 30 minutes and it will start right back up. Did the same thing last year and put new plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor on and that seemed to fix it until here recently. Pulled the cap yesterday and sanded/cleaned the points and top of rotor and sprayed some WD-40 and all seemed okay but then same thing happened this morning. It seems to run much better when it’s warmer out (which by Wisconsin standards is anything above 32 :-) )

    Leaving Town

    I'll take the Tundra, I'm actually looking forward to my first winter back there since my youngest has never been there for it and my daughter was 1 when we moved. After that the novelty will probably wear off! Sent from my EVO using Tapatalk

    Leaving Town

    Well I just wanted to share some news with those of you who might not know. My family and I have made the choice to move back to just north of or in Green Bay Wisconsin. The original plan was for everyone else to leave this weekend and I would come up once I found a job. Well yesterday morning I got called in my directors office and was informed that my position was being eliminated effective this Friday. So with that new bit of info, we are all heading up together. It has been a pleasure meeting some of you whether online or in person and wish you all the best of luck. As for my family and I, it's time to go play in the snow of the Frozen Tundra!!

    The "What did you get done this weekend" thread!

    I filled the YJ up with gas about 7 or 8 times and put a little over 1,000 miles on it! Ran like a champ all the way to Wisconsin!

    Neglected ATV

    It's a 1997 Articat 454 I really have no idea what parts I need. It ran fine when I parked it other than occasional overheating. At this point the first major issue is the amount of time it's been sitting Sent from my EVO using Tapatalk

    Neglected ATV

    I'm looking for some advice. I've got a 1997 Articat that has been sitting for at least 4 years straight and not ridden much for about a year before that. Can anyone recommend books, websites, etc. to help me get started on getting it rolling again? I'm on a very limited budget right now and I want to learn so I'd like to do all of the work I can myself. Any suggestions on where to start are greatly appreciated! We are moving at the end of June so I'd like to get it running again before I go. To say my knowledge of atv repairs is limited would be giving myself way too much credit!

    Looking for trailer

    My Father in Law has me on the hunt for a trailer for him. Since he is from up North he's looking for something down here that hasn't been as abused by the salt. Plus we can fill it up with our stuff when we move! He is looking for about a 14' or laeger, double axle, enclosed trailer being towed by a Suburban. If you have or know of anything let me know.
