Rhino turns over but doesn't start

I have a 2007 Rhino 660. I don't get the chance to use it very much. I used it in November and it has sat since then. I get in it today and it won't start. I have noticed over the two years I've had it that if it sits any length of time, it's hard for it to start after that. It's like it's trying to draw fuel from the tank and it's taking a while for it to reach the carb. Can I install a primer bulb on the fuel line to help it along. I have got a Honda Rancher and it has one and that makes it so much easier to start after a couple months of sitting. I was looking at the fuel lines tonight trying to figure out which one I could put a primer bulb on. There were several lines including one with a filter. There's one that runs to the bottom right of the carb and I'm thinking that's the one that would need the primer bulb attached. ANY help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Casey

I tried the starting fluid with no luck as well as covering the intake to try to build suction. It worked in the past but not this time. I've charged and drained my battery 3 times trying to get it to start.

Yea, same boat here. I'm headed that way this spring myself, looking foward to it. If you get up this way anytime, there is a place in Goldsboro, NC not to far off I-95 called Busco Beach, 1800 acres of all the fun and mud you can stand. They have a website you can check out!

No more vac fuel pump issues...

Looking for something better than OEM with out spending a fortune...

I just finished up my electric pump conversion after the second vac fuel pump went out (2006 Rhino 660 carb model). After lots of searching and checking out/measuring many setups, I picked up a 12 volt inline sealed pump kit (3-5 psi), and an inline fuel filter from Napa that fits right in place of the stock pump with only minor lengthening of the mounting bracket holes on the pump (reused the OEM hardware). It is a 2 wire setup, black grounded with one of the mounting bolts and the red run with the OEM harness (zip tied in place when needed to keep it in place) to the battery box and spliced in to the wire indicated on the blue plug (loose in battery box, already fused, and powered when the key is on from OEM). Last thing to do is remove the factory vaccuum line that went to the stock pump and cap the nipple it went to on the intake. It took about an hour including removal of all the interior paneling as pictured.

Plumbed into original lines, it works like a champ for about $55. This makes for the ideal setup for any tank placement, and will support any mod as fuel will allways be available to the carb when needed but is low pressure using the OEM overflow to the tank returning any extra fuel not needed. When the key is off it cuts the fuel off from the tank...

With this setup, if the key is on fuel is no longer a problem... It could sit for a year with fuel sta-bil untouched on a battery tender. That first startup coming out of storage is just a matter turning the key.

What you'll need:
Fuel pump kit- PN 610-1052 (Napa Auto $46)
Inline Filter- Universal 5/16" ($3)
Fuel line clamps- 4 each 6/16" ($2)
Wire- About 10 feet ($1)
Zip ties- About 10 ($1)
Vac cap- ($.10 cents)
Wire connectors- 2 (.30 cents)
Fuel line- 1 foot of 5/16" (.60 cents)

Hope this helps,

Jimmy

Had to jump the battery BC I ran it down cranking the machine. (2005 Yamaha Rino side by side 660). I put a battery charger on it at 40 Amps. Now it won't crank at all. Checked the small fuses. They are OK. What might be the problem.

Welcome, if you did 40 amps you may have fried something, not a mechanic so just my guess.
