2005 Yamaha Bruin 350 4x2 help!

Recommended Posts

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

Yes. I lined my marks up wrong and valves were getting stopped by piston. No damage and she runs good now

      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.

      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.

      Hi, think water got into the tank, have managed to drain fuel (not the best experience) and empty the carb of fuel ........ so it starts now and runs however, it cuts out on fuel and won’t restart, it will restart on reserve ?  When I turn it off and back onto fuel, it will start again.  If I take for a short run on fuel it will cut out again and only restart on reserve 😳. Any ideas what else I can check.  Many thanks

      I have a been given an old suzuki ltf4wd. It goes, but I think it has a problem. When I hit the starter button, the starter turns quite well for about 10 seconds then it bogs down a bit, and then the motor starts to turn over. Is that normal? I am used to engine turning every time the starter is engaged.

      I have been trying to get my Griz600 running right for 3 weeks ! Grandsons used it and it quit running , no spark ! New stator etc and started but ran terrible ! Found a burnt capacitor on cdi . Installed used cdi and burnt it also but ran same as other cdi . Came to conclusion wire harness had short so stripped it and found some bad spots fixed and another cdi ran terrible again ! Bought another harness and same rough running ! Checked spark timing with light (put tdc mark on case and on pull start hub) and when it starts timing right on but will jump 25+° retard ! When timing is on tdc marks it has no power ! The stator is new but I am wondering if the pickup coil is triggering incorrectly ? Also had top end apart when I first started having trouble and although rings were good I installed new rings . Also new timing chain and check the valves , they were good also . It kind of seems to boil down to the last stator I installed new ? I have done trouble shooting on quite a few cars , trucks , dirt bikes and ATVs but this is frustrating me ! Just wondering if anyone has any ideas ? Carb was new last yr and I checked it ! I
