99’ Yamaha bear tracker 250cc engine problems

Recommended Posts

I have a1999 Yamaha bear tracker 250cc one day I started it with choke on and it idled for a min then clicked some and shut right off. I was using the pull start to start cause something wrong with starter but it won’t pull any at all now like it’s locked up  can someone tell me what the problem might be

Welcome to Quadcrazy. From your description it sounds like you heard a noise and then it shut off?  Is the bike in neutral ? It’s possable that the engine is seized up.  I would take the spark plug out and try to pull start it to see if the engine turns over.  Then drain the oil if there is any oil in the engine and see if any metal pieces are present.  It’s also possable that something else is locking up the engine causing it not to spin like a blown clutch bearing, maybe something came apart in the stator coil area or transmission.

Yes I took out the spark plug and still won’t turn over I took apart the pull string housing assembly and was looking to see if something might have came apart in there but nothing      I can  turn back and forth about a quarter turn each way the part thats used by the pull string to start the engine but no more then that I also sprayed blaster down in motor where spark plug was just to see if maybe it would free up after sitting but didn’t work.    HELP PLEASE

Welcome back Allen. It honestly sounds like the engine has seized. I would take the head off exposing the piston and cylinder to see if there is any damage inside the cylinder walls. And maybe go further into this by taking the cylinder off completely. 

But prior to any of that make sure your not missing something else like the starter bearing or in the stator coil area   

Did you drain the oil? 

I have the same bike and it’s reliable and tough. But if there was no or low oil well that’s that! 

Hopfully you will find out and keep us posted. I’ve been a little busy since I opened up my own company but will try to check in from time to time. 

Goos luck.

      Below is a quote from a response to similar question from yesterday: 
      "Easiest thing to check is trash in the main jet.  if it idles fine, then the idle circuit and low speed jet is clear.  if it bogs off idle that's when it's transitioning to the main jet." 
      I will go ahead and open up the carb and check the main jet, but please respond to this post as if the main jet is squeaky clean.
      Below is my post:
      Only starts and runs on Full chock. 
      Does not matter what position I have my "mixture" screw.   Tried it at zero, 1 turn, 2 turn, up to five turns.  Spent a few hours confirming that the position of the mixture screw does not resolve issue.
      Runs great at idle and if I slowly engage throttle, it will rev up as expected.  But, quick rev up or when I am trying to drive it, it spits and sputters and looses power.
      I also use a propane bottle and did not find any obvious leaks, and the vacuum port is hooked to fuel peacock and I also made sure to simply block the port with my finger to see if that would resolve the issue.
      New Carb (after market), New Coil, Fresh Gas.  No leaks at manifold boot, hot battery.  Good gas flow.    Runs too good to be a valve issue, or cylinder, great compression.
      I can move the choke out a tiny bit, and it will still run, but will still bog down when I try to power it up.
      I also have a 250 trail boss Polaris that I require to run at full choke, but it has power at all throttle potions.
      I suspect it is running rich as the choke is on, but will not run with it off.
      Any details would be appreciated.

      Hello, the ATV doesn't stop anymore so I guess it is time to replace the brakes. Looking for part number and instructions. I think it may have shoes front + back and the front would be hydraulic.
