Yamaha special "L" plug on head.

Recommended Posts

I have a 1998 yamaha grizzly 600 4x4 I have put back to life but as soon as I had all the bugs out it blew the special "L" plug out. What causes this? Is there something special I have to do to replace this?

Ok gotcha. Never knew the name of it. Was the head or valve covers look like they were ever taken off ? Maybe not put back in properly?

I’ve heard that in some instances  the crank case vent lines get clogged or pinched and build up pressure inside the engine pushing on them. I would make sure that the engine is vented properly and all vent hoses are clear.  

Maybe reinstall with a good gasket adhesive and let them dry for 24 hours before running.

Thank you sir!

That seems to have worked. I did just that. I  got the red high temp and put it back and started it up today and no leaks. My yard is too wet to play to much but let it run close to an hour.

Again thanks!

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      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.
