Hola!

 

I bought this baby yesterday, wasn't running - but a carb clean and new battery brought her to life and she sounds and drives like a beast.  Ugly and beat up plastics but w/e

 

So, the carb was nasty - like green buildup and every port possible and was clogged.  Where else should I look to clean or change fluids?  Also, anyone have the lt f500f SRV manual?  I did not see it in the SUZ forum for manuals.  What causes green buildup in carbs?  I am new to ATV's, but have at least dabbled in doing all my own auto maintenance and am trying to get the kick in the right direction as to what to service next before i ride her full time.

I do know that there is an oil leak that appears to be from the clutch cover gasket but will get under and clean it all up to confirm exactly where its leaking from.

 

 

Thanks!

Additional Info,

 

I just checked the carb and it appears to be leaking fuel from the pilot screw just forward of the float bowl.  I did not mess with this screw when I disassembled the carb.

Any thoughts?

The green is old gas that has gelled up over time.

Get a good carb rebuild kit for it. You need a manual for the rebuild. If you can't find one for free, it is worth buying it.

I am thinking of buying the manual, clydes i think is the brand...I did find a really good vid on youtube of a dude breaking down my specific carb - which proved invaluable

      Hello All,
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4x4 trying to get fixed up so my grandson can go out in the woods with me.
      We have owned it over 10 years.  It got harder to start, until it finally would not.  Replaced the carb.  Right afterwards, it started and ran nicely, but after turning it off, would not restart.  Tonight I used starting fluid and ran, then died.  Adjusted the idle up a little, used more starting fluid and ran great.  It idled about 15 minutes.  Turned it off, and restarted.  Ran it around the yard about 5 minutes.  Turned it off, and would not restart.
      Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you.

      Hi All,
      Following on from the brief interlude in the "introducing myself" thread....
       
      In a nutshell, I acquired a YFM250 Moto 4 (1991) for cheap recently with the previous owner citing "no spark, needs a new magneto coil and I don't have time to fix it"... anyway I am dubious that the magneto/generator is the issue and thinking more along the line of ignition coil as after a clean up of the magneto I was able to get a rather decent voltage reading off the magneto with pull start and resistence readings seem to check out that the magneto is all ok (all 3 x phases = 1.2 ohms and no run to ground)
      None the less I ordered a new Ignition coil and Magneto/generator coil and am waiting for them to arrive.
       
      In the mean time I cleaned up the current Magneto, popped in a new battery and sparkplug, checked out all the wiring harness, all seemed good except I came across the "neutral switch" wire was broken.
       
      After wiring up a new neutral switch wire, the neutral light now comes on  (small win) and the starter relay (attached to rectifier) now clicks. If I hit the starter switch on handle bar the starter motor spins and if I  pull the cord starter I get a spark on pull....YAY!! I'll try and attach a video below if possible.
       
      So onto the starter motor. Starter solenoid seems to work A-ok, even if it looks crappy and starter motor spins as it should when I hit the start switch....but here is my issue.
       
      When the starter motor runs it turns Cog #1 and Cog #2 (see photo below)....but the chain in the back of the starter which I assume is the timing chain, does not move and there is no apparent movement of the piston in the cylinder.
       
      If I turn it by hand (per photo) or with the pull starter however the chain moves and the engine turns. However cog #2 rotates but not fluidly with the "Crank" (part I turn by hand) for the lack of a better word to use if that makes sense?
       
       
      Is there a grub screw or similar on Cog #2 that fixes it to the center shaft to make it all turn when the starter motor is run? Could there be a part missing? Previous owner had the starter apart so could be possible?
       
      The outer/front part seems to be on a key-way so not sure how to remove this easily to check how Cog #2 is attached.
       
      What am I missing here?

      With this cold snap, I noticed yesterday that the battery on my grizzly was a little weak. even clicked a few times before I got it to start. I'm thinking of picking up a batter tender/ trickle charger so was wondering what people use to keep their ATV battery charged up. I was looking at these on amazon. They both have good reviews.

       
      or this one

       
      Kind of like this one because if the accessory plug

      Any luck with manuals?
       
      I need a carb in the owrst way and am have gone down a lot of rabbit holes (over 90 tabs and counting). Factory calls for a Mikuni BST34/1 (I think, but need to check manual). I don't care what or who makes the carb, just need a basic reliable carb. No Racing etc, just puttering. I currently only have the cable with the round slide attached.
      Don't care if its round if I know what other parts to get to  make it all function.
       
      Thanks for help, and listening, gonna go chase more rabbits I guess.

      Looking for a carb for 87 moto4 200. Just bought the machine and it’s got a Chinese one that’s not working right even after I cleaned it out. Looking for the original mikuni vm22sf.
