2004 Yamaha Beartracker 250 gearcase plug oil leak

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I cant seem to find any answers to my problem, hoping for some help. I have a 2004 Yamaha Beartracker 250. I have an issue where my plug (don’t know name) on the middle top back of gear case where the transmission halves merge was leaking. I was actually able to push it down but it comes back up from presssure when engine cranked. The snap ring that holds the plug doesnt look like original but i put an O ring under it to hold pressure and it literally blew the whole plug off from pressure. My question is: is this plug suppose to have a lot of pressure under it like this? And what is the purpose of this plug and what is directly under it to cause so much pressure? The manual or any parts diagram doesnt acknowledge this plug or the snap ring holding it so im real puzzled at all this. I can see oil when plug came out and the oil level slowly goes back down into engine when not running. My PVC valve is hooked up and patent as should be and my gear box vent and hose is hooked up and just freely open to air. No oil comes out of any of the other hoses and this oil leak/ pressure problem has happened with low oil and when engine full of oil. Any help with this is greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!  Pictures of plug attached.

      I have a yamaha big bear 400, tested all fuses and relays. When I turn on key I get nothing, no neutral light or headlights. Could it be the key switch bad?

      Hello guys! New to the forum, and fairly new to ATVs. I've driven them, but never owned one. Now I do own one. Just picked it up today. It's a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350. It's been through some stuff. The guy I got it from told me the previous owner removed the front diff because he didn't want to replace the half shaft. So it's 2wd, even though it's supposed to be 4x4. Lovely. I can deal with that for now.
       
      More importantly, I need to get it running. The carb needs to be rebuilt. The guy I got it from said he sprayed it all out and it still didn't work. I'm concerned he might have damaged it or not put all the parts back. I was looking at a replacement carb, and the OEM parts is $600. I'd rather not spend $600 if there are any other options. I have seen carbs on Amazon and eBay that are in the $40 - $100 range that say they fit. Anyone have experience with these? I'm going to get a rebuild kit for the current carb just to make sure that won't fix it.
       
      Thats the first thing with it. Secondly, it was completely rewired. I need to find a original wiring diagram so I can put it back how it was, with a key and all. Currently it's wired with just a rocker switch. Any sources for a service manual that would include wiring diagrams?
       
      Thirdly, is the Big Bear 350 a good atv? I picked it up for $700. It does start and run when you spray starting fluid into the air intake, so I am not concerned about the engine being bad. I plan to use it for the farm, running around and carrying things with it like minerals and feed and such. Not really for mudding and things like that. How good is the 99 350?
       
      I am certain I will have more questions as I examine it more, but that's all for now. Thanks in advance for the assistance!

      Just got a '98 Yamaha big bear 4x4 in working condition (so far). Looking forward for some good information on this site about how to keep it alive.

      So I dug my warrior out of storage replaced the carburetor with one off Amazon & it was running great. Last week it didn't want to start it would crank & I could smell gas but nothing. I replaced the starter,stator,solenoid,spark plug & coil & resistor but still not starting. Checked the stator and its at 30 ohms tried using starter fluid but nothing. I am completely lost and could use some help thank you
