I just brought home a used 2005 Yamaha Big Bear 400 4x4. It needs front wheel bearings, and a new choke cable. I think i can handle those two items. However, when i went to look at it, it ran good, shifted good, brakes all workds great, but at home when i started it, it would idle nice, but when i gave it gas it seemed like it was flooding out and would die. If i just gave it a little throttle it built up RPMs but any more throttle it began dying out again.
any suggestions why it's doing that?
I'm looking for a service manual, but forum rules say i have to make 10 posts..lol
oops...i just realized i posted in the wrong section of the forum!!
Hello, Im looking for some help instead of spending hours on You Tube. Got roped in to buying the above Kazuma 110 I think. I've worked on all brand of autos.
thought I could tackle this butttt. No start no spark. My stator is producing a faint light by ground. Buy the meter I get 337 ohms on the
black, red wire. Some of my questions, Can I bypass everything to look for spark. Can the plunger type kill switch be removed an both wires put
together to help achieve spark that is behind the seat. My black red to the cdi has no power to it when turning over. Should i put some form of
lubricant in the plug hole or are these motors moving the oil enough and should the plug be in or out or does it matter when looking for spark?
I'm thinking the wire for the coil from the cdi should light up the test light and it does not. (Forget its color at the moment). I hope there's not a limit
of questions cause i will have more and Im not much for typing. Any help would be just jim dandy and greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve
First time working with a Honda-Matic transmission. I didn't even know what I was getting into when I purchased this running beat up farm workhorse quad with black oil. I was thinking I could tear the cases apart and find the bad bearing, causing the random squealing noise when you put it into gear and give it gas. Upon opening the engine covers, I Learned about the Honda Matic automatic transmission and realized there's more than just an electronic shift motor going on in these quads. With my learning curve in major education mode, I'm now wondering two possible culprits to the squealing as I've torn the motor down and am staring at the Honda Matic transmission.
Two possible issues:
1. The bearing that is squealing is unfortunately inside the hondamatic unit hydraulic transmission which is apparently not serviceable? A new unit is $1,900 to replace it! Yikes!
2. The pull starter rope snapped and someone replaced with the wrong pull starter rope that eventually became severely worn out and the centrifugal lever/catch shows signs of wear from rubbing against the housing.
Thinking now the pull starter has nothing to do with a squealing that loud, so my attention is now on the Hondamatic unit,
Has anyone gotten inside their cases to inspect the Honda Matic transmission?
There's a only 1or 2 videos out there that are not helpful for tear down and inspection.
I understand it can't be rebuilt but wondering if anyone has looked deep enough into one to clean it out from running dirty oil? Possible identify bad parts.
I refuse to believe Honda is engineeering these as completely non-serviceable?
Thinking I will try to disassemble the Hondamatic unit m. Hopefully get into it and get all the dirty oil out and replace with fresh? Any special tools needed?
Any and all thoughts/experiences with Hondamatic units would be great conversation for me..
I have a Suzuki Quadmaster 500, that I got from a customer. It has less than 400 miles on it. I think I put most of the miles on it, so they sold it to me. I used to drive it a few times a year, treatinjg the gas or emptying it when I could.
I relocated and wanted to get it running again. It will start with little trouble, then run for 15-20 minutes, then start to chug a bit, then finally stop. Sometimes I can start it again, but it doesnt continue to run long after that.
when I first opened the oil filter when I moved, it was drenched in oil and fell apart. I went and replaced it with a OEM foam filter. I notice now, when it does stop, there is a small amount of oil on the bottom the air filter box, and it's clean oil. I had recently changed the oil before I moved. Each time I clean that up, I go through the same process. It will run, and I can drive it for a bit, but then it slows down and stops.
Any suggestions? I am not an ATV mechanic by far, but can work on most of the stuff I own. I did have trouble finding a dealer who would work on it. One local one, said "We dont' work on stuff that's over 20 years old" It can't be because of parts, I just laughed.
For years I've been wanting to get my rowboat back out on the reservoir here in lower NY, just never found the time and every year came and went. Its NYS watershed and NYC water supply so you have to have it registered, tagged, and cleaned before getting a spot on one of these. Now I just need to dedicate some time to get out there and fish! You end up leaving it chained to a tree and it stays out there for 3 years before renewing it again.
