four wheeler question??

shelbyscottJune 4, 2008

Artic cat 250 2X4 backfires and starts extremely hard

won't idle when running. It belongs to my 14 year old who saved up for a year to buy. I don't have a clue? I am

trying to save some cash buy trouble shooting it myself

would a low battery cause it to start hard or run not well?

also how do you adjust the valves in this thing 4 stroke??

Unless you give us massive info on your vehicle and a
history you haven't a prayer of getting this fixed over the net but a bad plug will give you hard starting. You
adjust the valves just like any other 4 stroke but your motor is much more involved. Why do you think you need a
valve adjustment ?
