Mechanic to just look over my quad.

Recommended Posts

I dont really know much about working on quads, just go off of manuals and luck. I recently got a 1987 Moto 4, YFM350ERT that could use some work. Is there or does anyone know a mechanic in Phoenix, Arizona that might be able to take a look. Be able to tell me what it all needs and basically a diagnostic that wont break the bank. Any advice would be appreciated

As for me I would try and stick with brand specific mechanics.  Like if it’s Yamaha the. Take it to a Yamaha mechanic. Really would trust loved ones lives with luck right!

Troubleshooting is a special talent. Most ATV engines are basically the same except for some minor differences. The service manuals are great for torque specs and disassembly/assembly procedures. You do however need to have some mechanical inclination know your noises and the difference between a mechanical and electrical issue. I've seen some of the worst messes caused by guys who are great at taking stuff apart but can't put it back together or just throw parts at stuff based on what they read on a forum.

I just got a Yamaha 350 moto 4 and right before I got it the guy took apart the case and most of the inside. Was like wtf, but had to jump on it for $150. I printed off the manual just need to get working on it.

      Hi, Name is Dave, I am new to the site. I have UTV 2018 Textron Stampede... cant get the 4 wheel drive to work.
      I recently had blown out the fuse for the acc... while hooking up my turn signals,,, and ever since then
      4 wheel drive doesn't work, I can lock in the rear,,, while having the key on motor off,, I can hear the clicking
      sound,, which sounds like a relay in the rear... but when I switch to 4 wheel drive, I hear nothing. shows up on
      the dash that its working, anyone can help would be greatly appreciated. All Fuses and relays under hood are
      good, and under rear seat. Thanks  Dave

      Hi all new to the forum I have a Yamaha Moto 4 champ (100cc?) (YFM100) so I've been trying to get this thing to start for awhile honestly I'm running out of ideas so I'll start with the things Ive replaced and done first it was not trying at all and then I put a brand new battery then the terminals broke so I bought some nice copper ones fixed that up so now battery is got good voltage and all that I have checked all the plugs cleaned everything off so anyway it still wasn't trying but I couldn't get the crank case off and I didn't think using fire was a good idea lol so I busted the crank case off on the left side(if you are sitting on it) wierdly enough the flywheel started spinning I thought it was odd but went with it then I replaced the spark plug still wasn't getting spark so I replaced the ignition coil then it was getting spark next the carburetor was really gross I cleaned it out still wasn't working so I in turn decided just to replace it with a new one so I did (PS I never figured out how the fuel lines hook up if someone wants to help with that to lol) also for good measure put a new air filter so then I pressing the button Everytime I replace something and nothing so then I think what if it's the stator so I have no idea what a good or bad stator looks like but me being to rough I broke the wires on the thing but still no changes the fly wheel spins gets compression (I think) getting spark from spark plug idk other tidbits that might be useful I don't have a clutch line so idk if that has something to do with it I do have the break zip tied in to bypass the safety feature also the throttle cable is in fact broken and I'm working on buying a new petcock for my gas tank because my current one is broke I have very limited money this is supposed to be a project before I go to school for welding and automotive tech so I don't have any money to get a mechanic lol but I'm pretty confident in my ability to do anything u suggest any suggestions are welcome I'll edit and submit pics

      I just acquired a new ATV and know nothing about the brand so I decided to join your forum to maybe learn and get some answers .
      I am not new to ATV's but usually am a Honda guy and own 3 Honda's and 1 Kawasaki.
      The Kawasaki was a package deal type thing. I got a Kawasaki 350 (big bear I think) and a Honda TRX 70 ATV for cheap.
      The new one is a Kazuma 150 Falcon ATV.
      I also own and ride a Honda Rincon 650, the wife has a Honda Recon 250.
      Hopefully I can get the Kazuma running with your guys help........
