97 or 98 Yamaha 350 4x4 big bear

Any good way you know of doing that? A specific website that could tell me or how do I go about googling it? I found a 99 350 diff for just under 200, it looks the same anyway. I know anything under 96 or 95 wont work because the shaft coming from the diff to the driveshaft is different. Dont know about 2000 but 99 looks the same from what I can tell 

I use Partzilla.com  Find the part you're looking for.  Click on the part number and the page for that part will have all the different models that used that part.  There were several big bears, wolverines & kodiaks that used that particular rear diff.  Not so many on the axle.

Buying a used diff. & axle is going to be your cheapest route.  Trying to rebuild it will cost you 2-3 times more.

The axle itself is not bad as far as cost.  The diff is a pricier part however.

I could only find the front diff on that website, I dont imagine they're the same so I'm a little confused. But it did have a list of several models and years of similar parts so that makes it easier

I found a few on Ebay for around 150 or 180 but they all need the bearing and seal replaced, idk what kind of job that is or how it's down

The best of and seals are not to bad cost wise. Getting the bearing out of the diff is a pain in the ass.  Juts be patient you will find a good one. I sent an email if my guy has one I will put you in touch.

Another website to find parts and diagrams of your Atv is Yamaha parts nation. I use it for my 99 Yamaha beartracker 250 when something breaks. Hope it will help

I could watch the vid.  I'm actually working on a 350 big bear rn so this is interesting to me as I'm familiar with the bike now..

I couldn't believe the play it had in the video.. hopefully it goes back together as easy as it came apart

      Hi all,

      I picked up this quad after the previous owner couldn't get it going.

      The issue is that I can't get it to fire at idle or at all.

      I've...

      - replaced plug. Decent blue spark. Also tested with spark tester inline.
      - rebuilt the carb. PO had already bypassed vacuum lines from petcock. There's fuel at the cylinder
      - Checked compression with new gauge. reads 190 psi
      - cleaned all contacts I could access.
      - am currently jumping with car battery. Solenoid jumpered.
      - checked cam timing at TDC and adjusted valve lash
      - put gas directly into cylinder to see if it will fire at least momentarily

      Motor turns over well. Plug gets wet. 

      Motor may fire once or twice but smokes through exhaust a bit as if it's trying to fire or combusting.

      This leads me to suspect timing. As mentioned I checked the flywheel mark versus cam marks. Perhaps someone has been in there before because I can't find a 'T' on the flywheel but there is a very visible paint mark which aligns with TDC position on piston. Possibly a slipped flywheel/woodruff?

      Is it possible that if it had seen previous repairs, that the timing could still be off? I'm reluctant to dig into the flywheel/stator area if there's something else I could have missed but all signs point me to that area. Would a bad CDI cause spark timing to be off?

      Anywhere else to diagnose incorrect spark timing?


      I've scoured these forums and elsewhere but I'm posting just in case there's something I've overlooked up until now.

      Thanks very much for reading!

      I am goin nuts here! I have a 04 400 air cooled 4x4 , I'm a atv,car,truck,mower mechanic for yrs,just sayin. Ok it cranks and kinda fires now and again then after 5 min of cranking and stopping itl start if u touch throttle itl did then u start all over! If u let it warm up sumtimes u can throttle it up other times it just does! Just depends on it? When it stays running it runs awesome,no problems except it just does randomly like u shut key off? Sumtimes itl start right back up others itl do the no start thing! IV put new plug,adjusted valves and hot tanked carb? I'm at a loss here guys! Please any other ideas? I don't think it's anything to do with flywheel? It's not the auto it has a hi low reverse lever on left fender and foot shifter? Help please lol

      Just picked up a 1989 Big Bear 350 for $250 CAD. Bike was running but lost crank and spark. They've installed a new coil, a couple relays, and installed a Ford starter solenoid in place of the original. Now it cranks but has no spark so they sold it to me. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this bike so I can test some wiring. Also any ideas as to direction to head would be nice. Lots of things have been hacked together so I know it probably wont be to easy. The ignition switch was replaced with a toggle switch, I already mentioned the Ford solenoid which 1 of the small wires was not re-installed, and a diode or something was removed from the oil temp sensor wire. I'm sure I will find more so a diagram would be amazing.

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      Mine has an air cleaner that I don’t seem to be able to find, it has round ends with square tabs on them, any ideas?
