98 Yamaha Warrior 350 Bogs down Mid RPM

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about trading for a 98 yamaha warrior 350.

The current owner says it bogs down in the mid rpm range. It'll sometimes stall and die when riding it due to this and can only go around 35 40 mph.

They've done the top end and put a new carburetor on with no success. They disconnected the brake sensor and says this has made it ride better but it still bogs down.

They believe the carburetor needs adjusted.

I've only seen that it may be a cracked intake boot or something electrical.

Any help or input is much appreciated. It's a nice looking quad with an aftermarket bully bar, back storage rack and new tires. I'd be putting about $800 in trade for it. Is it worthwhile or may be a basket case?

Thank you.

I would lean on checking the air flow first and then mess with the carb. If they redid the top end or made some modifications, the carb may be jetted wrong and a new jet could solve the issues.

      I got this almost a year ago for $500.00 it was covered in a garage and owned by a 57 year old lady.  She said she didn't need it anymore and wanted me to have it for my kids 1 of which is level 3 autistic.   Ritual oil changes and yearly service.  This was barely driven and when it was it wasn't beat on.  All in all I got a killer deal on this wheeler and nothing is wrong with it.  Starts and drives like its brand new.

      I can't for the life of me find the correct service manual for this unit. It's air cooled, not liquid (oil cooler tho) and every manual I find has the wrong front differential diagram (it does NOT have a 2wd/4wd shifter).
      I'd be eternally grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. I can probably slog it out from some of the exploded diagrams I've found, but a good "do this, do NOT do that" manual would be a godsend.
