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

      FINALLY my 2016 yamaha grizzly 700 gets a bath! If you know me you know I sometimes forget to actually get all the skeg off the yamaha grizzly 700 sometimes lol unlike Jon with his yamaha grizzly 700. Take a look at the video the grizzly was acting up like nothing else!

      Shorter video than most of our videos but ALOT of work has been done in this video! The Yamaha grizzlys 700 will LOVE this cave! At first we were not sure if we would be able to fit two yamaha grizzly 700s in the grizzly cave but since the cave is all cleaned up I think we have more than enough room!

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      I have two 2003 Suzuki Ozark 250s, both 2-wheel drive.  Last time we rode them about a year ago, the red one was not running well, didn't want to idle, backfired a lot.  The green one ran fine. 
      Fast forward...I ordered a carb kit for both of them, thinking the red one has some trash in a jet.  Both of these ATVs have had little use and I've always ran the gas out after use (put an inline cutoff valve in gas line).  I pull started the red one to verify it was still running bad.  It will start and idle, but as soon as you give it any throttle, it dies instantly.  Give it a little choke, dies instantly.  Took the carb apart and it was spotless.  Went ahead and cleaned all the holes with carb cleaner and blew everything out with compressed air.  All new jets, main jet holder, and needles.  Put it back on and nothing changed.  Starts, idles (not for a long time), but dies as soon as you give it gas.  Same happens when you put the choke on.  It does the same thing when I try to run it turned to prime on the petcock as it does in the on position.
      Not an air filter issue.  It is clean and it does the same exact thing with no filter on it.
      Thought maybe there was a float issue or maybe a damaged diaphragm, so I took the carb off the green Ozark and put it on red.  Started up and initially ran normal and revved for about 10 seconds and then started doing the same exact thing.  Starts, idles (not for a long time), but dies as soon as you give it gas.  Same happens when you put the choke on. 
      So...not the carb
      Thought maybe vacuum petcock was bad, but there's no gas in the vacuum line going from petcock to carb and gas flows freely when on prime.  I even plugged the vacuum line at both the petcock and carb end and tried to run it with valve set to prime.  Gas flows freely, but does exactly the same thing.  I unscrewed the screw at the bottom of the bowl and gas flows thru carb and out bowl drain line when petcock is set to prime.
      So, I'm assuming petcock is good?
      Checked spark plug and it wasn't fouled.  Reset gap, didn't help.  Will swap plugs between Ozarks tomorrow but I don't think that is it.
      Anyway, that he history and now you're all caught up.  Scratching my head.  Valves? These were bought at same time and have had little use.  Suggestions?
      Thanks!

      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.
    • By alexcross324

      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.
