One Way Starter Clutch

Recommended Posts

I replaced the one way starter clutch on the 03 400ex I just picked up and got it running.  I took it around the house and then brought it into the garage went back about 10 minutes later and started it and it idled for about 3 minutes and made a clunk and shut off.  Now its doing the same thing as before the one way clutch was replaced.  What would have made it do that?  Also i dont know what all has been done to the motor.  I was told it was bored and piston shaved.  I do nopw it sounds like the valves need adjusting.  Any ideas on why the one way clutch would brake like that?

I think the  sprag ( one way clutch)  is being blamed for another problem.  I can't tell what  is  making it stall  after  idling  for a few minutes, but I very  much doubt it is the sprag..  It is more  likely a fuel  problem . Is it running rich with a  lot of  carbon  black  building up  on the  spark plug?

It made a clunk and stopped.  Now the atarter just spins and the mottor doesnt kick over like it did when the one way was bad.  I think the one way broke again.

      Does a US made grease gun fit Metric zerk fittings, or do I need a conversion to fit them?  Thanks in advance.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Do any of you fine folks happen to have a rear swing arm skid plate for a 400EX you would part with at a reasonable price?  New ones are between $60 and a Hundo and that seems a bit steep.  I've kicked around the idea of fabbing one but 2nd hand OEM would be preferable.  Thoughts?  I have a belly skid plate but missing the swing arm skid plate and really don't wanna taco the brake rotor.

      Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black

      Bike is L model

      So here is the newest project in the garage, a '99 400EX.  Came with full belly pan, DMC Alien exhaust with dual header, few other little fun additions.  Only down side here really is the stupid Chinese carb, but it is what it is.  Only paid $800 for it and it runs like a scalded dog.  70MPH on the top end, verified with a truck behind it and you have to fight it to keep the front wheels down through 4th.
