Ive attached a video, but you can do this mechanically by adjusting your throttle linkage(but it may not be enough). I'd suggest making a "stop" or a mechanism to physically stop the throttle from opening up on the engine end at the carburetor or throttle body. You must add something to interfere with your engine being able to "open up", I'd reduce it so that it only opens up 15%-20% which will severely limit performance.

Another option is to add an aftermarket Rev Limiter like a MSD unit, or find any rev limiter compatible with CDI ignition and a Single Cylinder, that'll work and you can limit it to whatever rpm you prefer at the turn of a dial! I had to do this to a motorcycle and a drag car and used a simple adjustable rev limiter to keep others from mulling themselves or blowing my motor up!

Spray some starter fluid into the throttle body. If it starts then it is a fuel problem. Check the fuses for injection operations.

Here is a video that might help.

The engine in a 2004 JD Buck should be a Rotax 650, which is a 2 cylinder 4 stroke water cooled engine generating 62 hp. With that said, the most likely cause of oil in the air filter and leakage from the top of the motor is excess pressure in the crankcase. A cracked block is a possibility, but the most likely culprit is worn piston rings. A compression test should help narrow it down, but in either case you are looking at a complete tear-down of the engine.

Here is a forum that discusses the need to replace or not the bolts because of stretching and also gives the torque for the bolts.

why?? do you want to blow it up??

Arctic Cat 2006... | Answered on Mar 13, 2019 | 27 views

depends on what year and model, it would be about 50hp or 36kw
that would be max rated, it will drop from there depending on age, mechanial condition, temperature, altitude, grade of petrol etc

try using it for awhile as is , sometimes use will free up the stuck gearbox

Because big break ,is possible that the piston rings to be stuck on their channels, due to burnt oil deposited in operation, if one of the many km as possible and wear rings, cylinder liner etc.
You need a solution to wash and degrease the segments, pour it into a cylinder, before you pull out the spark plug, which you search if it is wet and smells gasoline, it is a sign that it is fed correctly with gasoline ... do not overdo it with the washing solution, a 50 miles is enough.
Close gasoline, if you can not remove the hose coming from the pump, to the engine to avoid aspiration of gasoline while washing the cylinder, and do some startup maneuvers, plug the spark plug hole with a finger towel, thus preventing immediate evacuation of the cleaning solution and thus wash the cylinder and clean the segments, and observe the compression. After a few such maneuvers, all the cleaning solution will be discharged from the cylinder, now put a clean cloth in the spark plug hole, that the cloth no longer has anything wet on it, it is a sign that there is no cleansing liquid in the cylinder.
repeat the idle operation to make sure it's airy, fit a good spark plug, put the gas hose back on and have to start.
Preventive, check the air path, not clogged, clogged air filter, etc.
Good luck!

Spray some starter fluid into the throttle. If it starts, check the fuel system. If it does not start, check for spark.
