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..

Hey so back to this bike..  turns out its sputtering high end and found out the air filter is too restrictive.  Also blew the axle bearing so I gotta replace that cause the chain is wayyyy too loose as is.  Any help on what air filter would work good on this?  It's almost like it needs a turbo haha.

And what's a good plastic cleaner for atvs?  It has mildew on it and some pine sap.

      So my parents have not let me get my license yet and I need to get around to gets parts and stuff.  Answer: Yamaha CW50 scooter.  This is a 2-cycle self-mixing scooter that so far, I am really surprised with the power output and speed.  It reaches about 45mph since the speedo has been disconnected and has plenty of power for two riders.  Its stupid looking, but with some work and a title and plate, it'll take me around town..  My issue is this:  No key.  I bought it for $150 from a friend and he bought it from someone for $100 who wired in a switch in place of the ignition.  That guy got it form his neighbor who's renter left it behind.  The scooter will run with this switch on or off (kill switch on handlebar kills engine)  To get it tiled and a plate so its road worthy, I need to get the ignition working either by a replacement key or a new ignition.  All wires are cut to the ignition and the switch turned on the power to the signal light switch.  Also, the 2-cycle oil was leaking out the carb, through the air filter and onto the scooter.  also, it runs great, but its making blue smoke with throttle and the muffler is wet with oil.

      (I have new signal lights for it btw)  So the issues I have with it summed up:
      No key (need new ignition) smokes burnt out headlight-  can I replace them with LEDs?

      Passing thought here and thought I'd pitch it to the group for debate.  I'm working through a Kodiak which is basically a Big Bear in a heavier bike and the same as about anything Japanese made for 30 years as far as clutch function and design goes.  This Kodiak is odd though in that the centrifugal clutch slipped a bit with good clutch material remaining and the main clutch pack seems to slip a bit as well at high RPM but also still has good clutch material left.  Much like the Kawa race bikes from what I've read.  Do you think it's an option to add a thin washer to the pressure bolts to put a bit more pressure on the main clutch and force it to use a bit more of the clutch material before having to replace?  There's seriously like 50% of fiber left on the main clutch pack and it seems silly to replace it all before it's truly worn down.

      I was wondering if the complete headlight assembly from a 06 yfz450 would fit my 05 raptor 660r looking for a quick responses I found a set new for 25 bucks and either way dont want to pass up but was qurious.

      So my latest find is a Moto 4 250. Looked in good shape, started right up but would backfire and die upon acceleration but you 
      could get it to go if you were good with the throttle. I figured it was the carb. was a brand new Chinese carb, he didn't have original.
      I took it apart and cleaned it, only thing I found was some debris in main jet and the main adjustment on bottom was at 41 turns. Cleaned 
      it out and set at 2 turns, re installed. Starts up, runs better actually drove it but seems really sluggish, once I hit 3rd gear could barely pull
      it. Rechecked everything, even ordered a new carb as I had this problem with another atv but still same problem. Now I pull it apart and 
      decided to check compression, I show only 85 psi. I checked valve adjustment (after aligning up cam gear to mark on case). to make sure not too tight still right at 85 psi. 
      I assume I need to pull the head and look at the valves, Any ideas I am missing something?  motor does not smoke but is super sluggish. 
      The specs I find are off the downloaded manual of a 94 but figure should be the same. It states compression standard is 128  and Minimum is 114 and Max is 142
      Any other Ideas before I tear it down? Thanks in advance Az
