Yamaha Warrior clutch/carb/exhaust issues

Recommended Posts

whats the clutch actuator again?  I found part of the issue was that the linkage inside the clutch cover was not adjusted to the right gear tooth, but now it feels as if the clutch is locked up.

figured out the issue- just the incorrect tooth on the linkage.  Jumped the bike and took it for a ride (strained the oil, cleaned the oil filter, and put it back in).  the clutch seems jumpy like it engages all the way at about 3/4 way out.  And it doesnt like shifting into neutral when running and when its off, neutral is between 1st and 2nd gear...??? gonna order a new battery for it as every time i stall, it has to be jumped..no pull start.  also, i was thinking of getting a aftermarket air filter that attaches directly to the carb so i didnt need an air box.  is this a bad idea?  the old airbox melted on the exhaust.

but i'm still impressed as to how good this thing runs after having water in it.  has tons of power and endless rpm..  i haven't needed to use but about half throttle on it so far.

Sounds good. Nice work.  If the clutch is grabbing 3/4 way out the clutch needs replacement plates and springs.  Not a big deal.  Yes is one down four up or five up whatever it is. When you want to go to neutral you go all the way down and a half click up, that’s neutral. 

You can def replace the air filter IF there is no breathers going to the existing air box.  I used one on my old Polaris 90.  It worked fine. Looked great too. But only if there is no breather connected.

ok.  are replacement clutches expensive?  Thats weird that neutral is where it is- any reason for this?  The bike has one breather, but is doesnt attach to the air box, it just sticks up under the plastics..  (maybe this is how the water got into the engine?)

All bikes that I’ve ever known  even street bikes, Harley’s etc are like that.  

Look on amazon and you will see the air breathers. They look great.  You may have to adjust the air fuel screw a bit but that’s about it.

wait what are you talking about the air breathers?  I thought you were talking about the vent hoses coming into the airbox..

My answer was you can add a stand alone breather to the back of the carburetor only if you don’t have an existing oil breather line going to the old air box. If that’s the case then you need to keep the existing type air box.   

I did this on my Polaris 90 and it worked.  I had to adjust the air fuel screw a little.   

This is the type I put on from amazon.

ohhh  ok thats what i thought.  so i think there IS a breather, but it didnt hook up to the old airbox nor was there a place for it to hook up.  it just stuck up and dead-ended under the gas tank..  i tucked it under the carb so it wouldnt collect rain (i believe this was how water got into the engine from sitting out for years).  anyway i bought a 45mm high flow filter for 20 and it looks beautiful!  sputtered at top end so i adjusted it richer like you said and now it runs great.  I was having issues with the clutch engaging to hard and stalling me but it softened up and is easy to drive now.

so i put it up on CL today for $1700.  prolly have to drop the price but who knows....  almost want to keep it- its soo fun to rip around..  even just around my shed i was raising clouds of dust and making berms..

      I have a 2003 Kodiak 450 that i purchased a while back with around 300 hours on it. It has never ran right from the beginning. Initially i thought it was just a carburetor issue because it was all clogged up from sitting for months. It has been cleaned, rebuilt, and taken off probably about 10 times troubleshooting this problem. I have quadruple checked everything including float height ect and it is set correctly, the jets are also brand new, needle and seat have been pressure tested as well. So after all of that I am convinced that the carburetor is not the culprit. I have an issue where the idle is very choppy, almost as if it is misfiring with a rich condition on top of that. I can use a brand new plug and run the machine for just a few minutes and it will be a dry and and coated in black carbon build up. The exhaust also has a strong smell at idle. I had trouble restarting it when hot for a while, but i adjusted the valves and it seemed to solve that issue. They were both way out of tolerance (tight). The weird thing is, outside of idle it seems to run pretty well. 
      So with all that being said I have ruled out the carb/valves/compression and moved on to the ignition and this is where i have a few questions about factory specifications. I guess the main question I have is, how strict are these tolerances? And could them being off by this amount cause the issue I am having? Do all three of these parts really need to be replaced? I would like to know before I spend the money on these new parts, and it not fix my problem. Below I will list what the specs were in the service manual along with the reading i got.  This is my first experience testing ignition components. I just found it odd that all 3 are out of spec according to the service manual.
      Spark plug cap resistance: 10 kΩ at 20 °C (68 °F)
      My Reading: 8.90 kΩ
      Primary coil resistance: 0.18 ~ 0.28 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F)
      My Reading: Fluctuated between 0.4 - 0.5 Ω
      Secondary coil resistance: 6.32 ~ 9.48 kΩ at 20 °C (68 °F)
      Reading was within the specified range.
      Pickup coil resistance: 459 ~ 561 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F)
      Reading was within specified range.
      Rotor rotation direction sensing coil resistance: 0.085 ~ 0.105 Ω at 20 °C (68 °F) 
      My reading was 0.3 Ω

      Hi I have a 2000 big bear 400 and i just put a new carburetor on it and it idles fine but when you try to accelerate it sounds like it is going to die, so when it sounds like it is going to die I will give it more throttle then it will go just fine.
