Check the radiator fins. Sometimes they get plugged with dirt, dust, and mud. Wash the radiator from the opposite direction of the air flow.Not the same direction as airflow. Also Highlifter offers a bigger and better flow radiator.Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Us 3rd shifters can't see a computor screen that well, in the sun light.:biggrin:

hey thanks for your input, i decided to ignore my dealers recommendation and pull the water pump apart the impeller was sheared off, no coolant flowing, so i ordered the parts today, one question i have is the water pump and oil pump are chain driven, but that chain seems super loose with no tensioner my dealer didn't even have a good view of this or any specs on chain tension, i dn't know if this had any thing to do with that or what? or if i should just replace it or what, thanks again.

Not sure about that question. Ronnies mail order has some pretty good pictures on it, In the oem replacement section . Also going to PM you about some other options.

Hey Buddy

Im new to hear, but found an old article of yours.

Did u have any luck with the loose oil pump chain?? I have an 03 model with an incredibly loose chain, sounds like it skips along while trying to start.

Can you please let me know how you went, or any info on whether I need to replace, or somehow tension??

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

      I have a 2003 LTZ 400 that i bought a few days ago. The quad was running fine until last night. I let my brother ride it down the street and back and i didnt notice anything etong with bike. Then my neighbors friend came over and said "can i ride it?" I said "sure" so he ripped it down the road all fine and when he got back it died right in front of us. My brother said it was dieing on him also. He also said that he wasnt using the clutch to shift. I told him he was an idiot. Im throwing that in there incase that caused a problem as well. But today i go to check it to make sure its getting fuel which it is and replaced the spark plug incase it wasnt getting spark but it is. So i started it and it was having a problem starting then i got started and was reving at idle high. So i took it around the block and it died on me a little bit down, so i try to restart it and it started so i kicked it into 1st and it kinda launched on me and started going with the clutch all the way in. Then it died right after and wasnt running right during that process and was idleing all over the place and just died and now i cant get it started it again. Before it would start without the choke or priming it. It would start real quick now i cant figure if it needs to be rejetted or something else. Air filter looks clean also. But any help would be gratelly appreciated!

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.

      Hi all, I try to find this manual in the threads but you have a lot of stock here
      Cannot find this particular manual.
      I found it for YFM200 but not sure if they are the same.
      Thanks if you could help me with that.
      Im new here so if I did something wrong, please tell me.
