Shalom , I am a retired [but not dead] former senior executive after working my way up from a field mechanic for heavy equipment . Bought my first quad , a 94 King Quad 280 4wd for farm work here on the homestead . I fly an ultralite plane and love fast crotch rockets . [they can't give you a ticket if they can't catch you ] I am prepping a 40 acre homestead getting ready for the end times which are to come shortly . [scared yet ] [not me] My farm is over a half mile long with two river crossings and some hills that no quad can climb [so far] . I garden and farm organically and grow my own tobacco . And whatever !

Hi there everyone im new. I couldnt see how to make a new post so I apologize if this is the wrong way . I just picked up a polaris cyclone 250 x. I was told it was running just a few months ago . The guy told me to pull the carb and give it a good cleaning. So I did it. But it wont start at all. And after a couple pulls gas comes out of the overflow and exhaust. But I also put my finger over the plug and felt nothing. One more thing. On the left side the cover has a crack that he had put tape on it. Doesnt seem to be leaking but would that cause any problems. He said he road it like that. We hope I can find some help here.

First time here and I have a quad that is giving me headaches and I am searching for advice. I have a Polaris Sportsman 400HO that runs great...until you turn the lights on. Any advice on where to start looking for the trouble?

I have done that, used meter on light harness, no shorts indicated. It will run with one headlight connected, don't matter which one. That pretty much eliminates short in wiring. I checked stator, no shorts, 50 volts AC at idle, increase with rpm. I believe I have a rectifier problem even though it is putting out 14.56 volts DC. I removed it and done a diode check and the negative side has no reading. Unless something has changed over the years I should be getting readings on both sides. I believe when I turned on headlights the rectifier can't handle it. I also got a 21 volt AC reading at idle, which is telling me the rectifier is not doing its job properly. Its capable of keeping the battery up, but nothing else. What you think?
