Well, I've been debating making a thread on this, but I guess I will. Anyway, I got this little four wheeler from the gentleman I sold the Craftsman to. I don't think it has spark... And I do think it has a CDI, and I have no clue how that contraption works. Everything is kinda tight, so it definitely wants some WD40. I think the tires are good. Anyway, school restarts on the 11th er somethin like that, so that's why I've been tryin to get a lot of projects rapped up lately. But this is gonna be one of the over-the-school-year projects. So I'm gonna go 'head and stick er down in the portico er somethin and forget about it for a little while. Just thought I'd post up the new contraption. I have no clue what I'm gonna do with it right now, but hey, we'll do somethin with 'er!

Compared to the Avanti, it doesn't seem so small...

And for anyone wondering, I was told that it was a 125cc.

CDI = Capacitor Discharge Ignition?
A lot of outboard motors had that when I was a teen.
I think it needs a good battery and a good Igniter (electronic gadget between battery and coil). Timing is from a pickup near the flywheel.

Yeah it's something like that. A battery is gonna be my next try. Maybe I'll clean up the connections and see what I get. Gotta do some research on the whole CDI world first though.

Welp, decided to screw around with it a little. Pulled the body panels off to get to everything, then my brother pressure washed it, then we got the front brakes freed up, and now we're trying to actually get it running.

For some reason it's getting negative and positive power from the alternator (more neg the pos), it makes it to the CDI and all those weird contraptions, makes it back out of the CDI still strong, but when it gets to the coil, the -/+ power is super weak.

We also put a lawn mower battery on it for the time being. When we first put it on, the wire that goes to the starter was already broken off, and always had power until I touched it up against the starter post... Then it just went black until I let off. And it doesn't matter what you do, it constantly had power, so I think the starter might be blown.

I also touched what appears to be the fuse connections together, and when I did that, the low oil sensor (at least that's what it appears to be) started smoking. So I'm confused. The main switches aren't doing anything at all. But for now I just want spark. I don't know, I guess I better start questioning the resistor.... (whatever the heck that does).

Oh, I also found out that this is actually a 90cc 2 stroke with a real torque converter.

Okay, so I don't know what all happened, but I do know my brother pulled the whole wiring harness and went through the whole thing. It had spark after that. He also rebuilt the starter and carburetor. Then we took it for a rip and tuned it a little. After that we put it all back together minus the air box. Still could use a new carb. It also needs a relay and stuff like that. But the kick start does fine for now.

It's running alright now. Still needs a carb or something. The brakes seem a little worn, but it'll be fine. Hopefully I don't get hurt on this thing. Eventually I'll sell it, but I haven't abused it anywhere near the amount I hope to, so.

Sounds like there may be a loose ground in there somewhere.

I don't know. It's all too confusing for me. I still don't know what was causing the spark issue. My brother got it working pretty good so I'm gonna get a battery for it and try the relay first. I think that'll take care of it. Who knows. At least I know the starter is good. Once I put the relay in it and a battery I think all the electrical gremlins will be eliminated......... But don't quote me on that.

Well, I haven't done anything but put a new carb on it so far. Still very very picky about air/fuel mix. I'll eventually get it. Don't have the time to work on it right now. Anyway, I'll try to make a full video of the abuse it goes through when I get some footage. Here's some pics I took right before a storm. I didn't know this was a storm and ended up getting slammed by it while riding the 4 wheeler.

Okay, so as you can see, I had this thing running pretty good. I send it off jumps and drift it and 2 wheel it on a weekly basis. I was abusing for maybe a month since that's about how long it lasted before it started running like crap again. Now I can barely get it going when it's cold. But I'll get to that at the end. We'll start by saying that I finally got that battery and relay. I had to hook up the starter wire because I forgot it was disconnected. Once I did that the starter worked. I think there's an electric choke on the carb that doesn't work, but that's because it's disconnected. Oh, and a resistor is burned out, but I think it'll be fine. I put new front brakes on it and new headlights. The front brakes were never adjusted right when I put them on, and after it did some harsh rolling and front flips during a wreck, the handlebars got crushed and that finished off the front brakes. The new headlights are starting to fail already too. I don't know why yet. The taillight only works as a brake light now too. The body is absolutely decimated. The rear brakes are going out too now. The front end is starting to have some camber and toe out. The starter is going out. It leaks oil. This is one sick puppy.



So, as you can tell, it's running anything but good. I don't know if it's piston rings, or an electrical issue, or gaskets or what, but I don't think it's gonna be worth my time. I'm gonna take it to a shop this week and see what he thinks, but if it's anything major, I'll probably sell it if I can get a couple hundred for it. If not, I'll consider parting it out if I like the suspension components. But as of now I don't think the suspension components are worth it. So I'm most likely gonna sell it this winter unless I can get some more abuse time out of it. We'll see. Tell me what you think it could be.

Welp, I almost sold it. Had a guy come look at it but it was running just bad enough that he didn't want it. That's fine with me. I managed to get it to run better so I thrashed it for like an hour and a half. Anyway, yeah it has to be rebuilt. I don't know if I'm gonna rebuild it or not yet. As for the moment, we're just gonna send it. And when I say send it, I mean I'm gonna be an IDIOT.

Yup, we did the ol' nitrous can modificontraption... Gave the ol' girl at least 2.833 hrsprs. Just give 'er a little shot, and she starts roarin' back to life.

We'll see how long she lasts I guess.

Welp, I put it to bed about a month ago. Tried to get it going for Rockcrusher but that was a fail. Dumped a bunch of ATF in the fuel but it wasn't enough to handle anything more than an idle. So I put it out behind a garage and covered the clutch area cause it fills with water and doesn't move. So it's gonna sit there until I figure out what I wanna do with it.

Thinking about rebuilding it, but I really don't know. Everything on it is beat to heck so I'm not sure yet. All I know for sure right now is that it's just gonna sit behind the barn until I figure out something to do with it unless someone sees it and makes a good offer on it.

Just discovered the thread. Cool rig! It looks kinda small to me but that’s cause I’m used to running the grandparents’s Yamaha Beartracker 250. The insane part of me says do another build and call it the Alpha Murray...but my advice has a tendency to backfire so maybe take it with a grain of salt I guess. Hope it all works well for ya!

Edit: just realized it is a mini four wheeler, now feeling kinda stupid lol
