Lol. No I’m not doing a new chain. Old one only had 50 hours on it, figured I’d leave it alone for now. Yeah I’m stoked for this. I rode a raptor with an 11:1 and a HC2 and that was great, can only imagine how this is going to compare.
Well, after I got the head back I went to set the valves and stripped out the locknut. New one shipped from Texas and ended up in Puerto Rico somehow, so drove about 200 miles today to pick up a new one at the only dealer in CA who had ONE in stock. I made it count. Got it torqued and set and put her back together.
Then I go to install the exhaust...
A few weeks prior to this I had the o-let welded on for the O2 sensor. I left a cap screw type plug that Dez sent me loosely threaded into it and I left the whole set up in my parts room (formerly known as the spare bedroom).
This evening I go to remove it and it’s stuck! My Hilti 1/2” wouldn’t even bust it loose, so I got out the 24” breaker bar and pipe wrench and it fought me the whole way. I’ve attached a pic of the plug I pulled out. I’m wondering what you guys think happened? Some sort of electrolysis?
The metals were literally fused together. I had to take my Dremel with a tiny cut off wheel and carefully grind out the threads inside of the olet because they were full of some type of metal deposit. You can see the deposits on the end of the plug, this metal was all inside the threads in the olet.
The plug in that pic was in the box you sent me. For sure it was the right size and pitch.
No, not cross threaded..there was literally extra metal in the threads between the plug and olet. I’m thinking maybe because that guy used steel to weld the olet the first time, then I had it covered with SS again. Caused some electrolysis perhaps. Very strange.
Oh, I thought it was from the other extras I sent. I forgot you bought the auto tune. I wonder if the bung warped with all the welding. Try to thread the O2 sensor in. If available, you might run a tap thru it. And during assembly, use a lot of anti seize.
Oh the O2 sensor is in good buddy! She may not come out, but damn it she’s in and running!
The motor is all back together and the build is almost complete, just have to install nerfs and skid plate again. Then I’m headed to our other house in Napa countryside to do some runs for the autotune. My girl can get a handle on her new quad at the same time which will be good.
Ok thanks. I adjusted the intake to roughly .13/.11mm and exhaust to .18mm.
I looked up how to bleed the oil in the raptor 700 but only found info on the 660. I just cracked the bleed bolt on top of the oil filter cover and it flowed out. I didn’t do anything else. Am I missing something?
I did an 11:1 piston. And I didn’t wait for the fan to come on. I shut it off and pulled it in the garage.
Pulled the exhaust cover and it was def oiled up good. How can I tell if my timing chain tensioner is working right? That could be a possibility if it’s too slack. I installed just like manual said though.
So I am very new to this. I rode ATV's a bit when I was younger and just recently moved to a rural area where I can ride more, especially since ATV's are street legal here. So, I bought an 06 raptor 700. I believe its all stock other than an hmf slip on exhaust. I just ordered the trail tech...
I was browsing earlier and i thought i came across a link for the asv lever package on sale but i cant seem to find it again. apparently i closed out of it without noticing. does anyone know of any websites running any specials right now?
i ordered some ODI lock ons, i used to have those on my...
With a little more riding as of recent, i'm beginning to notice it's quite uncomfortable when riding for longer periods on the road. Is there any way i can improve this so it sticks to the road better (less body roll) and a little more comfortable as i won't be using it off road at all.
