I have actually a 1994 sportsman 400. I obtained it stuck this weekend and also found out the 4 x 4 is not engaing. Thru further investigation I found out the basic way the front hubs lock is by magnetizing the hubs and also locking them. Ns am not obtaining power to the hubs, but it appears that ns should have the ability to tap into any electrical resource and run it thru the 4 x 4 push switch switch and also it must work. What is you men opinion. I am a good mechanic, but this is the very first atv I have owned.

Thanks,

Mike

I am obtaining approx. 3 volts the end of what i would speak to the distribution panel come the switch and also that is as much a s ns got. Just how do I recognize how countless volts need to be going to the front hubs? 3 volts appears reasonable because the wires going down to the hubs room tiny. I would say perhaps 20 or 22 gauge.

Thanks, Mike

Dude

in my experiance through quads, (bout 25 years) i deserve to tell u a cuple of rapid fixin' basics

were u stuck in mud? Rainy? Or silty like hell? Or stuck in branches and also shrubs?

1 there are 2 good cables to run up the atv indigenous the hubs, inspect for damage, also take turn off the facility front plastic cover, no devices needed, and also check if they gained disconected, 2 hubs at the moment not functioning feels basic to trace, if yor bike has the large panel v all conections visible (center former plastic) check for bad conections on grounds, brown cables me thinks

2 conector to her 4x4 ideal handle, they obtain dirty very easy, pull the conector, 2 lil' locks basic to press, and also clean the conectors, likewise you have the right to pull every wire the end of the conector and giv'it a lil' tight up, tough to explain and also my english not so good, however i gambling u can figure it out, one thing, dont pry difficult or start bangin through hammer, usually human being tend to carry out that and also make much more damege than good, and end up to be my clients

oh...

3 inspect for continuity in between the cables the go come hubs (disconect first) also check because that power in between cables (conected)
