Does anyone know if 1 grip goes bad, would it effect all three the grips and the thumb warmer. My dad rode it and had some fun too-took him uphill in the powder nicely. Hydraulic disc brake is very responsive. Only got stuck on one hill that even a 600 got stuck on. No, power was not an issue, but weight was. Where are the alignment marks on the halves? What happened was that four of the pto side bearing balls busted up and disintegrated inside the crankcase, and also wedged between the crankcase lobe and crankcase, and wouldn't let the crankshaft turn. I would give this sled and 8.
It could very well be that this is poor. So, I'm going to replace that one too and hopefully that will solve the mistory. If you have power as described but they still don't light off, find where that ground is. Well I spoke to the dealership and looked at the engine yesterday. Follow the directions and clean it out. ? So now both grips are working, but the thumb warmer still isn't. Be gentle if you do and keep the float depressed until the pin is out and then let it up slowly.
Then I put it all back together and put the motor in the sled and it started right up. Well I spoke to the dealership and looked at the engine yesterday. Third, the Freestyle has a narrower ski stance, which is good for boondocking and playing in the powder. It sounds like a lack of oil or incorrect type of oil. I've also had the headlights flicker, the high beams not work and I think one time after fiddling with the switch assembly I had no lights at all.
What happened was that four of the pto side bearing balls busted up and disintegrated inside the crankcase, and also wedged between the crankcase lobe and crankcase, and wouldn't let the crankshaft turn. But while it was running I noticed something freaky: the drive clutch is way out of balance and is vibrating the whole motor on idling. So now I'm going to remove the clutch and get it balanced either that or sell the sled! Dan Well I finally got my engine finished: I broke the bottom half down as far as I could then brought it to the dealership so they could press apart the crankcase halves and clean out the metal chips. I couldn't find any relays or fuses on the machine. Usually when my hand warmers didn't work, the thumb warmer didn't work either, suggesting a connection common to all. It has more response for smaller people than the all-out machines.
? This is caused by using ethanol fuel and not draining the carbs and tank during the summer. Best way to check is find that ground, affix your test probe alligator clip to that, and do the probe work again. I'll have to check those out. I actually swapped out the voltage regulator with my other son's machine also a 2006 Freestyle 300 , and that didn't do it. How long it sits in the living room, however, depends on snow and how tolerant your wife is in my case, mother. It has great suspension, good control, great fuel, and it's durable. I've done quite a few jumps on it and it has held up quite well.
Might have shorted the system and burned all of them out? Then I put it all back together and put the motor in the sled and it started right up. I have got stuck a few times since I got this sled; either from me not knowing completely how deep the snow was or trying to get some snow off of the running boards while stopped. Also, if you pop the hood, you can see the works: Rotax 300 single, hydraulically operated disc brake and light exhaust. Hope you get your Freestyle running soon! Ethanol sucks, switch to premium non-ethanol or straight gasoline high octane, use a fuel stabilizer if you don't. Light enough for me to lay over well and I'm only 78 lbs.
Also, if the outer half was not put on right it would not be seated correctly and would probably require a new part if torqued down incorrectly. . So a word to other Freestyle 300 owners: if your clutch vibrates, you'd better get it balanced before it busts up the bearings, or else you'll be walking! How that short track carries out orders in the deep stuff remains a mystery-for now. Working on my son's 300F and all the electrical works great head lights, tail light, reverse, etc , except the heated grips and thumb warmer. I have actually made it through close to 3 feet of snow.
For 3, take a look at how the control arms are attached at the center. So now both grips are working, but the thumb warmer still isn't. Really odd that both or all three would burn out at the same time. I seriously doubt both handwarmer elements and the thumbwarmer are bad. It is really easy to get unstuck with this sled also. I thought I would notice the offset engine, for I could counter-steer it easier to the left than to the right.
Started the sled and the new grip worked, but the other side still did not. So I did some reasearch online and found that an out of balance clutch will chew up the bearings, and that's exactly what happened to me. I have inspected and cleaned connectors , etc. Affix the alligator clip to a good ground important! The purpose of a needle and seat is to shut off fuel when the float rises, its a complex build of a simple function. I do know that there are chunks of metal in the bottom of the crankcase that did not come from the top end. Trying to make heads and tails of this issue.
