Yamaha Big Bear, Questions about Rubber boot for Drive shaft.

Recommended Posts

My boot on the drive shaft came off this weekend. When I tried to put it back on it appeared to be about 2" too large. Any explanations????

Also when the boot cam off, there was oil in the boot. Is this normal???

Thanks for your help.

jeez...did you get transmission fluid on it or something? That makes rubber expand like crazy. and it must have ripped to come off, correct? maybe it got stretched out when it ripped.

Busglinger, I did not get transmission fluid on the rubber unless that was what was inside the boot when it slipped off. As to know why or how it came off, I have not a clue. The rubber did not crack or bust. I did pressure wash the motor just before riding it the last time.

Since you mentioned the transmission fluid, if the boot is not suppose to have oil inside, then probably the transmission seal has gone bad and cause fluid to leak into the boot and that is how it got oil inside the boot. And possibly it is transmission fluid.

Thanks for your help.

Please, anyone else have any ideas, please advise.

Is there no one else that knows anything about this issues that can help me????????????????

there is no tranny fluid in the bike, just atv motor oil .... what you saw in the boot was old grease that was packed in there ... the same grease for the front/rear axle shafts ... you can probably get a "split" boot to put back on to avoid dismantling the drive-shaft ... whatever route you go, it needs to be sealed

      First of all sorry I have been MIA here for a while, been busy with school and work.  I'll try and reply on some other threads asap, but posting this one because I just picked up a 2017 sportsman 570 before the new year and popped a boot on it going through a mud hole.  The former owner had aftermarket axles on it to accommodate the 4in lift and idk what brand they are but they're skinny as heck and idk what boot to buy to rebuild with?  It's the rear right lower boot (under the brake calp.).  I'll post some pics when I can and sorry again I've missed yall on the forum!

      Anyone ever replaced the shifter shaft on one? Not sure on the year but assuming it is in the late 90's. Is it a huge task, splitting the case etc... thinking about buying it as my next project.
       
      Thanks

      I have a Yamaha Big Bear 350 and the reverse doesn’t work, it shifts from low to high easily but it won’t go back to reverse. I’m new to this stuff, so I’ll take any help. Any ideas?

      Hello all, 
      i just rebuilt the top end of a 99 Bear Tracker 250 and it can’t get it to hit off of gasoline or starter fluid. Occasionally it will backfire. Right now I’m just trying to get it to fire off without the carburetor like I’ve done a thousand times before with other engines. Usually there is no response, but occasionally I get a backfire through the intake. ISeems like it’s out of time, but I don’t see how that could be possible. 
      Here’s what I know:
      1. compression 120psi
      2. all timing marks are lined up after numerous revolutions. 
      3. Strong spark. 
      4. Valves adjusted correctly. 
      Thanks in advance.
