Since Switch loves to talk 4wheelers on the 2wheeler forum, I figured I'd chime in... Finally started my overhaul project with a lotta help from Rev Jeffrides of the Church Of Preventive Maintenance...

Rev said these are probably the worst carbs he's ever seen! One has green crud in it that had eaten the diaphragm.


11 years of mud and muck packed under the fenders and in the radiator grill...

dealt with that issue before. that's one of two reasions I dont like newer quads, the other is they have got to big, and hey yes it has 4 wheels but when it comes to working on the motors info is info right.

I want to, but like last year, it falls on my sons birthday. No way could I stand the hell I would be put through for missing that! Well, I wouldn't want to anyway (although I did try to talk the family into turning that weekend into a fun for me, fun for Supahkids birthday last year).

Ain't that the truth. I grew up on 125's and 250's. They were 2wd and I never remember getting one so stuck it took more than some pushing or maybe a shovel to get it out. They went anywhere we needed to go and when they rolled they weren't so heavy that they would kill you (unless you really screwed up).

Last one I rode was a Can-Am 800(?). Felt like a squishy Suzuki Samurai, but with more power and less roll cage for when things got squirrley.

I cut off the cigarette plug off my Airman pump and am wiring in an SAE plug so I can plug it in the SAE that I'm using for my Battery Tender. Is there a rule of thumb for which wire is positive in wiring? Both has white lettering on the cord and I didn't know if that was used on the + or - side consistently. The pump works either way but I don't know if it would hurt the pump if I reverse the polarity.

Can you see the motor to see which way it's turning?

Without seeing it its hard to say... If its a series or shunt wound motor, shouldn't make any difference unless there are electronics involved... If its a permanent magnet motor, the direction will reverse and then it will depend how it's connected to the pump.

I can't see the motor at all. It's encased. I don't know much about the motor is in there so I guess I'll try it one way and see. I've got a 50/50 chance of getting it right. That's better than most times I work on something.

Can you feel which way the air is moving? If it is like my 12v pump, it has a nozzle pointing out and a side opening where it draws air in. Twist wires together and feel the air flow. if it is backward, reverse wiring and seal it up.

Yep, if its a corkscrew type compressor and the motor turns backwards, it's gonna suck... Lol. However, if its a piston type, the motor could still run backwards and pump air.

True... Kingsize? Which is it? Airman makes many different kinds. Is this a compressor or just a air pump?

Gotcha, I hooked it up and it blows regardless of the polarity. Looks like I can't screw this up even if I try.

EDITED, the Tour BW. It's a compressor.
