Welcome to QUADCRAZY, I moved your topic into the Yamaha forum. Have you tried adjusting your clutch? Is it slipping at all?

The clutch is adjusted and  It doesn't slip in any gear it just wont go into 5th gear. I been told that the shift plate may be bent but I can't see how it would shift all gears and reverse but on 5th.

I think I did read somewhere people were replacing the shift shaft, not sure. The clutch was my first guess. Can you get it in gear when on the move or is this just stationary shifting through the gears.

It doesn't matter if you are riding it or stationary, it wont take 5th. By any chance would the 5th gear be value controlled?

      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.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Hi All
      So far the parts I have to give this ATV some love are:
      Oil and air filter
      Spark Plug
      Diff oil
      Engine oil
      Crush washer for the diff
      New plug and O ring for the engine drain
      New o rings for the oil pump housing
      Anything else I should get?
       
      Cheers
