Most smaller chassis vehicles are unibody which will make it difficult to cut pieces out without creating weak points. Frame based vehicles are easier and many have exocages over a stripped body.

Your ignition switch contacts are failing. Either replace it with the same or with a marine key switch.

Price seems high for a buggy with worn seat and tires.

A 2006 will not have the low range in the transmission. It will use the CN250 engine instead of the CFmoto250.

When you jack up the rear and spin one wheel, does the other one spin in the opposite direction? If it this does not happen on both sides when you manually rotate the wheels, you have an open differential issue. I'm not sure if the Polaris uses a true open differential or whether one side is always ...

Jersey Devil is a member on this forum that has previous experience with the 175cc. He may have parts resources or be able to give guidance on swapping to a CN250.

There are plenty of upgrades for the Predator, but think about how you will get reverse using a torque converter.

I am not familiar with your Polaris, but it sounds like one half shaft is always powered and locking the differential engages the second one. Have you seen the video in this link?

Look for obstructions in the intake or exhaust.

It is either a mechanical switch off the brake pedal or hydraulic switch off the master cylinder. Check for power at the switch and chase down the fuse or check to make the switch actually works.

Did you set cam timing correctly?
Did you adjust the cam chain tension?
Did you gap the rings to the piston?
Did you offset the gaps when installing the rings?

That is a 2007 or 2008 model and not a 2004. If you snap a picture of the entire rear, I can tell you exact year.

I am keeping my last Joyner too. I have hoarded so many spare parts and even an engine for it, that I should be good for another 11 years. We will soon be running it for a straight week between sand and road use, so I'll see if I have to dip into my cache.

That means your idle or pilot jet (the jet with smaller hole) is blocked. Using your choke, restricts the air enough to keep it running. This carburetor may be new, but there may be something inside the passages or jet reducing fuel flow.

The red/black is AC power for AC powered CDI's. You cannot run AC in to a DC or vise versa without damaging it. If you already have all the wiring run for a DC CDI, get one from Max. Right now you have no idea if the CDI is blown or there are other problems and this will at least eliminate another u...

If the starter is spinning and the engine is not, the starter clutch may have failed. I have not opened up this engine, so I am not sure if it sits in the same location as the GY6 or the CN250.

Does the color of the spark plug tell you if you are rich or lean? How does it run without the air filter verses with it installed? What happens when you run partial choke verses wide open? Do you have a clear fuel filter where you can see the gasoline flowing? Does it run out?

Lifan has been around for a while building these engines due to the popularity of pit bikes. Do a search for "lifan 125cc semi" to get the auto clutch version. It will pop up from many sellers and is also on Amazon and eBay.

That style of engine is available in a 125cc 4-speed which may be better than the current one. I'm not sure how much fabrication is required for motor mounts, but the unit is very similar in size.
