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.

      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........

      in this thread, I want to discuss how 4-cycle atv engines work- what the different types are...  how they are set up and which you prefer.  To start off, are the cams on ALL atv 4-strokes powered by a cam chain?  I know that on say a lawn mower or logsplitter engine, the cam is turned by the tappet, pushrods, and valve rockers.  Which is better and why?  Chain-driven cams or pushrod-driven cams?  Are the pushrods just an old version and everything is transforming to chains or the other way around...or not at all?  Just looking for some explanation, history, and downsides/upsides...

      I have an older (1987) Yamaha Big Bear 350.  I have arthritis in my thumbs.  Is it possible to replace the accelerator with a motorcycle accelerator (ie. twisting the handgrip)?  This would be more comfortable for me due to the arthritis.
