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.

      I replaced the fuel pump filter and it ran great for a week or so. Then while driving across the yard in 3rd gear it shut off and hasn't started since. It has fire and its getting fuel, all fuses are good, battery fully charged. The fuel pump relay seems to be warmer than it should be when spinning it over. Any help is appreciated!

      Working on a bayou 220 that has been ran extremely hard it's whole life. Literally had almost an inch thick dirt/oil covering the motor. Yeah that bad. Surprisingly it runs though. I cleaned the carb and tank multiple times. They're clean enough to eat off of. Readjusted valve lash and set timing. Was about 3 teeth off. It cranks good and runs good only problem is I have to cover the carb intake basically choking the hell out of it for it to start. The com choke works fine. It does this each time I start it regardless of temperature both ambient or motor. Wth? Compression is at 115psi I get 130s if I put a little oil in the piston chamber. Please help. 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?

      The VIN on my 2018 Kodiak 450 is not where it's supposed to be. I bought this used. Is there another "hidden" location where I can find it? Need the number for insurance co. Thanks in advance.

      I picked up a 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2X4 a week or so back in non running condition, apparently they said it needed a new carburetor or a battery, I cleaned the carburetor thoroughly and got it running on idle and without choke now and it shifts into all the gears even into reverse. Aside from making me bounce a little when trying to start out with a bit of throttle the shock suffice to say needs work. Anyways I made a video of it running and would like your opinions on it, as to how it sounds while running. It seems like it has a little whine I'm not sure why that is maybe someone can tell me what it is. Anyways here is the video.
