2000 Yamaha Big bear 400 running funny

Recommended Posts

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.

Haha that was my exact question I was going to ask @BuggyMasters, sounds like a typical Chinese carburetor. 

These cheaper carbs all react the same. They have a flat spot in them that you need to get past in order to accelerate.    And even after that spot is past it will not stay accelerated for long.   Bottom line is they don’t work well.  

Honestly I would rather take my chances and  buy a used oem carburetor from eBay and rebuild it if need be.

I did put a cheap carb in it but I found that the needle was the wrong height. But thank you guys for responding

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.

      Question: Do you have to take gas tank off to get carburetor off the quad. ?? 
      It's gummed up again and needs cleaning. Put Sea foam in tank hoping it would dissolve any crud. No joy

      Good Morning All!,
      After a significant amount of reading and tinkering, I'm stumped.  We have a pair of Arctic Cat DVX 90s (4-stroke), and one of them runs very rich at wide open throttle.  I've cleaned the carb (which was installed new  last year), verified the main jet (80) to be per the original spec, installed a new air filter, tried a hotter spark plug (CR6HSA), and adjusted the valves (tightened a modest 0.0005" but improved starting).  The hotter spark plug may have help just a bit, but not appreciably.
      Just for fun, I swapped the CDI between machines, and that didn't help either.
      Fouling plugs very quickly, but not to the point the machine will not run or start.  [black instantly]
      Logically, I assume I'm revving out, but the other machine doesn't "stumble/blubber" anything like this one.
      Should I try a smaller main jet?
      Any ideas you guys may have would be much appreciated.
      Thanks in advance everyone.

      Have an Bear Tracker 250. Dont have the manual or any literature to help with. Anyhow, starts with pull start in gear, and electric starter doesnt work. Also, neutral light doesnt come on. Where should I begin?? Need some direction on troubleshooting all this. Thanks a million.

      I picked up a 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2X4 a week or so back in non running condition, apparently they said it needed a new carburetor or a battery, I cleaned the carburetor thoroughly and got it running on idle and without choke now and it shifts into all the gears even into reverse. Aside from making me bounce a little when trying to start out with a bit of throttle the shock suffice to say needs work. Anyways I made a video of it running and would like your opinions on it, as to how it sounds while running. It seems like it has a little whine I'm not sure why that is maybe someone can tell me what it is. Anyways here is the video.

      My old Big Bear nearly left me stranded but I managed to limp back to my garage just before it died. Now No Spark. I’ve changed the obvious, inexpensive and easy parts- spark plug & coil without any luck. 
      Ive stripped it down and traced all of the related wiring, checking as many connections as I can but no luck again. 
      Next I pulled the cover and accessed the stator housing to inspect and do some resistance testing to ID a possible short. 
      Here are my readings:
      Source coil- 325 ohms
      Pickup coil- 225
      Can anyone tell me if these are good numbers, and if good, where to go next?
      I assume my next purchase will either be a new stator or CDI, but since neither of these tend to be returnable items I want to be as sure as I can I’m gonna get a resolution to the problem!!
      Thanks,
      Gary in SC
