I am surprised. Some of the older machines had riveted on tags. Keep lookijg I have a feeling you will find it.

the bike should be somewhere in the middle to late 90's.. a youtube video I watched is what told me about the ink stamp on the frame.. but maybe I'll get lucky..

Post a pic of the bike of you can.  I’m interested in seeing if we can identify it. 

I bet your anxious on the new parts to come for the other bike.   I always hate waiting for parts.

aight.. it'll be a bit, I'm at work till 7 so it'll be dark but I should be able to get enough light on it.. this specific model the bodies were the same on the Timberwolves, bear trackers and wolverines.. but if I'm not mistaken, bear trackers only came in 2wd, this bike is 4wd so that should rule out bear trackers.. I hope.. lol.. and yes, waiting on parts sucks but well worth it.. if I'm off and I know the parts will be in, I sit outside and wait on the mail lady antsy as hell.. lol

Wowwwwwwee that’s great.  Looks exactly like my bear tracker. But I don’t know if they make that in a 4x4. The 350   That’s a nice set of projects.   Do you have all the parts? plastics racks etc ? And more importantly the manuals ? I’m hoping you have everything and seeing them come back together will be cool and also rewarding.  

Do you have a budget in mind or a spending limit ? eBay  will be a big help on some used parts for whatever your missing. 

Good luck and any questions you might have I’m sure myself as well as many others here at Quadcrazy can help you out.

I don't believe they made the bear tracker in 4x4.. but the bear tracker, timberwolf and wolverine of these models were identical.. and it was several years they all looked identical.. that's why it's so hard to tell what it is or the year model.. and yes, both bikes are complete except the mystery bike is missing the pull cord assembly and if the big bear had a factory winch, it's missing but if it didn't come with a winch then it's 100% complete.. no manuals for the big bear, but haven't checked the mystery bike yet.. I'm gonna go out on a limb tho and say it's gone.. lol.. but I'm gonna get new ones for both.. and it's gonna be very awesome seeing them revived considering they haven't been ran in close to 9 years.. they've just been sitting up in a grassy tomb.. as far as a budget, I didn't really wanna be over 1500 to 2000 because if I ever decided to sell them, that's about all I would get out of them.. but considering I got both together for 200 bucks, I should be well under that mark.. and I always use eBay for just about everything.. that's where I've gotten all the parts for the bear so far and found the hotshot performance cdi for it.. thanks, and hopefully I can be of help to yall one day and return the favor..

      I just bought a Yamaha Big Bear 350 from 1992. The previous owner has run it on regular engine oil and I have problems with the clutch slipping. I think that's the reason.
      So what should I do?
      - Just change oil and it will be OK?
      - Clean engine/clutch + new oil?
      - Or do I need a new clutch?

      It is guessing the centrifugal clutch that slips. It has two clutches , it also has a "regular" clutch .
      Anyone who has any experience of using wrong type of oil?

      Fixing for a friend. Atv was at a different friends house to be fixed and he rebuilt the carb and had it running nice, then it shut off and no more. He replaced the key and the coil.
       
      So he got busy, so I am helping, I checked the wiring from the stator to the cdi, and from the cdi to the coil. All is good. I checked resistance on the pickup coil, good, and on the source coil, open. I buy a new stator (China) and the 4 prong plug only has 3 wires in it while mine has all 4. I checked resistance in the source coil and it's in the 300's. I pulled one of the old pickup wires out of the old stator and wire it in the new one. Still no spark.
       
      Why do the wires differ, I checked the VIN again and it's "J" for the year and I got a 1988 stator. Please help!

      I bought a 2003 Polaris Sportsman 500 3 weeks ago for $2000 and the seller only gave a quick test drive to show everything worked. After 2 hours running it died on my son (he may have swamped it). It would not restart, so the local Polaris dealer picked it up and did not see usual signs of water intake. Back firing out the exhaust. They are pulling the head to look at piston/rings but they are not sure if there are gearcase issues. Roughly $1000 for them to bore out for new piston, more if gearcase issues. My question- how much $ should I throw at this? Just looking for an ATV to go with our 2003 Yamaha Kodiak 400 that my boys can run around the yard with (no long trail rides). I can (but don't want to) put another $1000-2000 into this, or should I just call it a loss and sell it for parts? I still need to get another ATV and don't want to risk getting someone else's problems. Thanks for all and any help!
