1990 yamaha big bear 350

Recommended Posts

I have a 1990 big bear 350. It just started dying and back firing while being rode. Also tries to die out while riding. If I down shift then shift back up it runs ok for a few minutes. I've read a few things that the fuel could be to lean and needs adjusted. My buddy said timing chain. Any help would be appreciated thank you

Could be water in the float bowl,or a piece of floater dirt.loosen and remove bowl drain screw,turn on fuel and let some run out,it may wash it out.

Thanks out there, I’ve also got a 1990 Big Bear 350 and I’m having the same problem. Sometimes it runs perfect but, then intermittently misses and farts. I don’t think the Big Bear can change timing. It’s all in the Black Box. So I’m going to drain my tank, flush it and clean the petcock. Then change fuel filter and clean float bowl. 👍🏻

That’s a great way to get after it.  Make sure you clean the rest of the carburetor and not just the float bowl.  Throw a new spark plug in as well. Count the turns you unscrewed the air fuel screw out of the carburetor as well. This way you put it back exactly where you took it out.  Should be about 2-1/4 ish turns.   Good luck.

      Working on my oldest son's buddy's 2000 Big Bear.  He was having some power loss at WOT so i thought it worth while to clean the carb and put at kit in it...or at least clean the OEM jets and use the new orings that come in the kit.  It starts and idles like a champ, but dies and wants to backfire with any throttle at all.  I assume lean because it will run decent with the choke on. Air screw adjusted fine, nice crisp idle.  This one has fuel/air screw, low speed jet, mid jet, and main jet.  I was assuming just trash in the low speed circuit so pulled it and cleaned again, still does the same. 
      Two questions I guess:
      1. Does it sound most likely trash in the off idle circuit?  This one has a few more passages and jets than I'm used to...and a darn diaphragm.
      2. It now really wants to leak at the bowl drain screw.  It doesn't seem to tighten enough to completely stop the flow.  Seat looks good, screw was dirty but cleaned up fine with a touch of 2000 grit paper.  First for me.  Any idea here?

      Hey Guys,
      I'm pretty new to ATV's and never owned a Polaris before. Lately I have noticed that it is very hard to shift from Park to any other gear. Is there an adjustment, or is that just the way they are?

      Hi I have a 2000 big bear 400 and i just put a new carburetor on it and it idles fine but when you try to accelerate it sounds like it is going to die, so when it sounds like it is going to die I will give it more throttle then it will go just fine.
