Hi Buggy buddies...Its been forever. I got out of riding for a while. My oldest was never really into it, my middle boy loved to ride/drive the buggies but he found different hobbies and my daughter was not much interested as well.

Well fast forward a few years the buggies sat outside getting sun baked. I have a Yamaha Rhino, a Roketa GK-13 and a Joyner (with a bunch of engine swaps that never materialized).

My daughter asked me a few months ago can we go riding...so as she is 14 and moody I said yes but I needed to get the buggies running. Well the Yammi fired right up with a new battery. The gas was fecal matter and luckily not much of it, so I pumped most of it out and put some fresh gas in it. I have been lusting over the YXZ1000r for years so I went and bought a used one with 2800 miles on it. Its amazing and a ripper. Holy cow. Me, my middle one and daughter met Jomamma from here and we did a 40 mile out an back on Four Peaks 2 weekend ago...it was fun.

I really would love to connect with some of the AZ peeps and put together a camping / riding trip soon. It really has been too long.

Now for the fun part, I want to get the Roketa running I am doing Predator 420 swap and the Joyner has a Polaris Predator 500 motor that I cannot get spark. So I am gonna create a couple more post asking for your help If can beg some of it from this great community.

Cheers, Bo

Hi Bo, glad to here you're still around.
Some of the old die hards still go riding together. I've txt Vegas but no respond.

On your motor with no spark,
See if you're getting spark to the wire.
If it has points maybe they need to cleaned and adjusted.
If they're good,check coil with ohm meter.
Good luck!

Sorry reread your post. Disregard the post about points. I thought you were talking about the predator 420 no spark.
Oops!

Hey man, yeah all is well. I’ve loved your Redline and a few years ago I nearly picked one up. But I missed out on it.

I don’t have Vegas number but I messaged him on FB and on here but have not heard back as well.

With respects to spark, I couldn’t get the 250 on the GK-13 so I pulled it and now I’m gonna do the predator swap hoping that goes well.

As far as my Joyner I am also not getting spark on it as well with the Polaris Predator 500 engine. It’s been fully built and has a port and polished head.

I’ll post something on that soon.

Hope to get together sometime…be well my friend.
