2001 big bear 400 timing chain guides

Recommended Posts

I have a really dumb question. My big bear came half apart and I am not sure how the timing chain guide is supposed to sit in there. I have the entire top end cleaned, bored, new piston, gaskets, etc. I do not see anywhere in any manual or thread where it shows how the chain guide is installed or held on place????? Also should it be the same height as the other side???

Ok so I looked at another bike. Took timing chain cover off and the tip of the chain guide is in a slot on the side of the head. the bottom is in a pocket that holds it in place. It fits pretty securely when the head is bolted down. If you are not careful this guide will fit between the chain and the pocket it goes into and the guide will slide down where it does not belong. I found out. No damage done as it didn't look right so I didn't leave it there and found out the right placement. Seems idiot proof after I figured it out but it wasn't me proof the first time I set the head down. Honda all my life learning the Yamaha differences as I go. Bike runs good, so far has good pull. Used it to check and fix fence all day and it just runs better every hour.

      Just picked up a 1989 Big Bear 350 for $250 CAD. Bike was running but lost crank and spark. They've installed a new coil, a couple relays, and installed a Ford starter solenoid in place of the original. Now it cranks but has no spark so they sold it to me. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this bike so I can test some wiring. Also any ideas as to direction to head would be nice. Lots of things have been hacked together so I know it probably wont be to easy. The ignition switch was replaced with a toggle switch, I already mentioned the Ford solenoid which 1 of the small wires was not re-installed, and a diode or something was removed from the oil temp sensor wire. I'm sure I will find more so a diagram would be amazing.

      Bought a nonrunning 1996 bayou 400. Tore down engine and found major problems. Piston is damaged and cylinder liner needs replacing. Looks like cause was a broken oil pump gear.
       
      Question is can a piston from a prairie 400 be used? Is it the same engine? I assume the liner is replaceable?

      I'm going to check the valve clearance on my 2011 Grizz 700 for the first time and I'm also wanting to check the timing, but I'm not sure how to do it. What tool (light gun?) do I need for this job and how is it done?
