2005 Yamaha Bruin 250 2wd No Spark

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 I registered on this site because I just purchased a new to me 2005 Yamaha Bruin 250 2wd. This seems to be the only place to get diagrams so I'm hoping I can download them sooner or later. The guy I bought it from said it had no spark. And it truly does not have spark...lol

I haven't looked into much on it. Looks like he replaced the ignition switch and the stator. I'm thinking CDI box but I want to check the coil first.

I look forward to helping others out on the electrical end of the world. I am an ASE certified automotive electrical technician. If it's 12v, I can usually figure it out.

Working on this right now. I will figure it out soon enough but I figured I would ask in here in case someone has a suggestion.

 I just purchased a 2005 Bruin 250 2wd. It has no spark. They replacement the stator and the ignition switch. Is the CDI box a common failure on these machines?

The cdi is definitely a factor.  If it gets moisture in it or damaged it’s pretty much done.  Have you looked at the entire wiring of the bike? Kill switches, safety switches etc.  Test the stator to make sure that it’s good. Even though it’s new.  Also the ignition coil.  This can be done by referring to the manual.  You need an electrical tester with an ohms setting on it.  

Then after that is done maybe consider a new cdi.

lol I pretty much joined for the same reason; to 'unlock cheat codes' for a Kawasaki. Picked mine up on the cheap due to carb problems, but it's also sat for 9 months and the battery needs charged. As a former auto mechanic myself, I'm pretty sure I know how to fix it, but was hoping to score a service manual before I tear into it. 

Good luck on your project; looks like you're on the right path. I'd be checking the coil first as well.

@BradF80 Welcome to QUADCRAZY! I moved your topic to our Yamaha ATV forum and changed your topic title to include your ATV and issue. I also merged it with your existing topic on this issue😁

Haha thanks!

I dug into it this afternoon. Looks like the secondary circuit on the coil is open so I ordered one of those first. The CDI box is interested though, I'm not getting a "positive" pulse from it to the coil. I see a ground pulse though. Isn't the CDI supposed to send a 12v signal? The shop manual didn't offer much insight on how the circuit works lol

Glad to see I'm not the only one looking to unlock the cheat codes. Looks like there"s a bunch of info on this site.

Well after replacing the Ignition coil I still didn't have pulse for spark.  I bought a DVA adapter for my multimeter and checked the stator circuit going to the CDI. The CDI had signal coming in, power, and ground. 

 

So the CDI was presumably bad. I went ahead and replaced it and got spark back. She's been sitting for who knows how many years but now she runs!

      Hello! When I put my Bruin in reverse....reverse light comes on....and the quad backed up. I went forward, and everything was great. Then I tried reverse again, and the light would come on, but the engine would only rev up, it would not move. This has lasted for a couple weeks, then yesterday, when I started it - I tried reverse....and it moved, I moved it forward to try again, and then it refused to move again. I don't know much about these machines (Yamaha) but it seems like even though the reverse light comes on, something isn't telling the bike it's in gear....where should I start with this problem?

      About a year ago I replaced the carb on an Bruin that I bought from a relative, I replaced it because it was gummed up from bad gas sitting in it for a couple years. Replaced the carb, and ran it a little bit and it had a problem of the carb popping whenever giving it throttle. I assumed this was just a fuel air mixture I needed to adjust, but I was lazy and just let it sit for a few more months. I went to adjust it just now, but I don't know if I'm slightly retarded, but I can't find the fuel/air mixture adjustment screw anywhere on the damn thing. I've tried nearly every screw I could find on it without taking the whole thing off (Which is a pain on this atv). I'll link some pictures I have from ebay on this carb. I also checked manuals and diagrams of the carb and could not find anything anywhere. Please spare me from my complete ignorance.

      Need some help please. I am trying to set timing on 4x4 350 bruin 2006. My brother and I disagree on which ones to use. If anyone has a picture they could share I would greatly appreciate it
    • By Matt3
      Recently, I changed the timing chain. I lined up all timing marks and set valve lash at TDC.  The mark on flywheel was on point as well when I looked through sight hole. I started the engine and starter turned it over then it hit and stuck. I did it one more time and the same thing happened. I took everything off and saw no damage. I tried to turn it over by hand and same thing. It turns halfway or so and hits. I loosened valve lash and took crank gear off and it does the same thing. It will turn over clockwise fully but not CCW. It seems like the crank sub assembly weight is hitting the gear balancer weight. I can turn crankshaft CCW while turning the gear balancer CW and get it to go but feel it hitting something. I also can spin crankshaft CCW without crank gear on and force the engine to break past the stick. It’s not the piston.
      Please give me some suggestions thanks

      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

      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?
