    I found on eBay, 2" round bicycle wireless multi-function-speedometer < $10. Two-sided taped to center of speedo, so indicator lites show. Epoxied magnet to rear wheel inside. Must make a small bracket for wireless-sender to bolt on near the brake. ( when I see it again ) Machine is...
  3. Brake Pedal Freezes when pushed down

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    The story was about the rear ONLY which has the separate fluid reservoir. Your combo front brake-lever & thumb-throttle has the reservoir built-in. P.S. Leaky shaft seals ???? See my front & rear shaft seal 'problems'.
  4. Brake Pedal Freezes when pushed down

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    Old story: Someone had lost the cap off the fluid-rezuvor, and then found a tin-can-cap that kinda fit. Wrong! Years later, the cap had rusted, which caused the brake master to seize... solid. Then it lands in my shop. The chief says - Brake fluid absorbs moisture, then...

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    2005 John Deere Trail Buck 500 / Traxter 4WD CVT Slow oil leak at engine-transmission shaft, universal feels tight, differential seal not leaking but shaft feels 'loose'. I suspect the diff may need oil. The front diff was dry. Need after-market part# for both engine & differential...
  6. ATV Wiring - mystery connectors

    ATV Tech Tips
    DONE with the wiring... Did not have to re-wire any circuits except the tail lights & new blinking-STOP light. Did replace several plastic connectors-from-hell with soldered connections. Did shorten & re-route all the wiring around the engine. Removed one trash can of assorted plastic things...

    Removed (torched) the rear mounting bolt from the front differential. Moved diff forward 30mm. Removed 4 bolts holding front engine mounting bracket to frame. Also loosened engine-top-cushion nuts. Raised engine from frame 20mm. This allows the engine-cup & diff-shaft to be removed from the...

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    Oops... I am now working on a JoeDeere Trailbuck / "Traxter", and its radiator sensor IS A TRUE ThermoSwitch wired directly from fuse #3. I can imagine the ran$om that would bring ! Nevertheless, I installed my third $4 module in the frame member up/behind the radiator. Clipped the wires off...
  9. Just got a2000 traxter 500

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    To answer your questions 1>Yes, they are Goofy looking. 2>If u pull them frequently, you're shoulder will go out. Maybe, just for grins.... remove the elec starter and try it on the workbench with strong 12v battery. Usually, replacing the brushes is the fix de jour. However, I have seen...

  11. Front Diff Prop Shaft Seal

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    FollowUp: Move front differential attempted. Appears like it may move forward enough to remove the diff shaft. Had to use big breaker-bar to loosen 100lb+ front mounting bolt installed by big gorilla. Rear mounting bolt will not break. Nut is touching frame,,, cannot use socket or box-end...

  13. Front Diff Prop Shaft Seal

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    Patient: 2005 dirty & ugly olive drab J.Deere TrailBuck 4x4 Rotax 500 engine Diag: Leaking front differential shaft seal. Note: this model does not have universals on the front diff shaft. OK - Which one of you gurus told this guy to SuperGlue the engine-seal-housing ? PLUS, smear orange...
  14. Wiring diagram or test procedure for coolant sensor fan switch 2001 Traxter?

    BRP Traxter / Quest
    I found the sensor is just a thermal-resistor. Not a switch. The switching is done by the ECU. On eBay I found: 12V Thermistor Relay Sensor Temperature Module Expensive! $ 4.04 Plus, In your junk drawer, find a tiny plastic box.. fits perfect. Dab of Silicon mounts up high & dry. Tiny...
  15. ATV Wiring - mystery connectors

    ATV Tech Tips
    Brake-light blinkers Bulbs are 12volt 2pins single filament. Tail light wire leads thru the resistor to the bulb, which glows 'kinda' bright. Brake light switch wire lead directly to the bulb, which glows 'real' bright. Yes, both the tail & brake wires come together at the bulb. In the late...
  16. Fuel line fittings (at the tank)

    Can-Am / BRP
    A GALLON of RubberLubricant ??? We will assume, you own a tire shop. :giggle: In my tool cabinet you'll find a big-blue-glass jar of Vaseline. Must be over 60 years old. The end-of-the-tank ---- sorry, no photos. Alcohol (gasoline) makes rubber hard and soon breaks it down to oozy black tar...
  17. Fuel line fittings (at the tank)

    Can-Am / BRP
    I poured boiling water over the gizmo to soften the rubber grommet that holds it in the tank. Slowly pry&pull the gizmo out of the tank. Hmmm, theres the hazy plastic dome with the EmptyFull indicator inside, and thats all. Flashlight sees the other parts in the tank bottom. There is a...
  18. Fuel line fittings (at the tank)

    Can-Am / BRP
    Got the elbow-fitting on-order. Thanks - you may have saved the day ! Also, thanks for the info on the internals. Being an old dirt-biker, I don't want anything inside the tank. As a rule,,, if it gets gasoline from a can, it needs an $5 automotive (metal can) inline filter. Same tank -...
  19. Fuel line fittings (at the tank)

    Can-Am / BRP
    This JonnyDear/Traxter 500 has two leaky fuel lines at the tank. Old stiff rubber fuel lines + old rotted rubber plug-fittings = sad story ! We have new fuel lines, the off/on/reserve valve, the inline filter, and a good clean fuel pump, but,,, this rubber-stopper-thing is a disaster waiting to...
