1998 big bear clutch adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently bought a 1998 big bear 2x4 for a cheap project. When purchase it started and ran but only caught a couple of forward gears and reverse but could “cycle” through all gears. After reading through some forums, I found a clutch adjustment forum which leads me to my problem. I now can only “cycle” down and up one gear. What have I missed and what do I need to do to fix it? In case you can’t tell, I have never worked on an atv or hell anything for that matter, but you never learn if you don’t try! Thank you in advance for the help!

Thank you for the help. I have not taken the clutch back apart yet. I forgot to mention it will also roll when pushed when in any forward gear just like it was in neutral. Reverse still works perfectly fine and cannot be pushed while in neutral. Does this help diagnose any issues, or give any more ideas of what exactly needs to be fixed?

Thank you for the help. So, what would I need to do to make it engage?

Did you try adjusting it like in this post:

I have the problem I have is, is there a starting point for for the screw? In other words, it says loosen the locknut and turn 1/8th of a turn and right the nut. Should I just keep doing this until I see a difference or should the screw be in a certain position before adjusting

So I did adjust the clutch and still have the same issue. Today I installed new clutch plates and springs and still have the same problem. Any other suggestions or thoughts?

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      Just got a '98 Yamaha big bear 4x4 in working condition (so far). Looking forward for some good information on this site about how to keep it alive.

      IMG_4272.MOV Originally had my griz600 stop running and then wouldn’t start ! After testing all coils , valve lash , compression (115psi) and all tested ok I bought a used cdi . After cdi install it still wouldn’t start (no spark) ! So even though the stator , pulse/trigger and charge coils check within good range I decided to switch the stator etc ! It started but It is very unresponsive on throttle and acts like it is running in 2 Different spark timing ! With slight throttle it will take off good but instantly go into a very different running mode with no power like timing very retarded but it will switch back to running good for short period then bad again !  Since I replaced the stator and it started I then decided to install the cdi I replaced and it did the same thing ! Also I noticed the Used cdi I Took off had a capacitor that had swelled and extruded from the back of the cdi . I had always heard and I believed that when these CDIs go bad they machine will quit and will not run . Is that true ? I also checked the cam/valve timing and its ok ! Checked with timing light and it does fluctuate on idle ! I am thinking I have 2 bad CDIs . I also switched the trigger Coil wires and would not start then . Man , this thing ran good before and I am confused ! Video below may help !

      So i have an old yamaha bear tracker that was given to me from an old farmer I know. I decided to refurbished it and fix all the quick fixes on it. I am pretty sure that it is either a 1999 or 2000 based upon the original wiring harness. Little did i know when I bought a new to me wiring harness from ebay that it was from a 2003 or 2004. My question to everyone is do I need to have all the stop switch assemblies hooked up? I think there are three on the 03/04 models and only one on the 1999 to 2000. Any help I can get for this would be great. I haven't run it yet due to the motor and crankcase is in two totes.
