Using too low an octane fuel, incorrect timeing, or carbon buildup. Timing isn't adjustable on the 97 so I would say it is carbon buildup and too low octane or cheap quality fuel. I have gotten "93" octane at cheapy places and still had pinging but gotten regular or mid grade at better stations and not had the slightest hint of ping. Also, check to make sure your plugs and wires are in good shape.

Every force causes acceleration, if it's not opposed and canceled by other forces.

There is no force of acceleration. Acceleration is the rate at which velocity changes over time. A net force causes acceleration.

Force is the only thing that causes the accelerationof material objects, whether they're moving or not.

That the force that causes the acceleration is not constant.

Neither. Force causes acceleration of mass. Mathematically, Force = Mass * Acceleration.

Forces is defined as anything that causes an acceleration on an object when applied. The force on an object causes it to change its motion which we called acceleration.

take it easier on the clutch as your reversing

Probably because your wipers are on intermittent.

Try using a higher octane gasoline in this ATV. Many times the pinging is due to not using a 91 or higher octane fuel. A lower fuel like 85 or 87 may not be burning off as efficiently as the 91 octane which in turn will cause the pinging.

There is an intermittent failure in the safety restraint system. You will need to have the system checked for codes to know possible causes.There is an intermittent failure in the safety restraint system. You will need to have the system checked for codes to know possible causes.

The force which causes acceleration towards the centre of a circle is called Centripetal force but what causes it can vary.

The derived SI unit for acceleration is meter/second2.It doesn't matter what causes the acceleration.

Any force causes acceleration i.e. change in velocity.

The intermittent wiper relay is helpful when only a light rain or mist is present. It causes the wiper motor to only operate once every few seconds.

The FORCE. May it be with you
