got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price. one of which is a yamaha warrior. anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike? Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet. The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work. he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears. things I see: clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box. I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first. also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts. Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last). any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like. lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

Does anybody know where I can buy a complete wiring harness for a Yamaha bear tracker. If not could someone send me a picture of the the colors of the wires coming out of the cdi plug and voltage rectifier. So I can get an idea of how I need to wire it. Also where can I find a wiring diagram for them?

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.

Hey everyone, I've been scratching my head over this for most of the day. I bought a couple of Bayou 220's, got them running (they've both been sitting), and started tweaking and fixing small things. One of them is mostly done, the other had an aftermarket carb on it and I've been trying to sort that out.
Anyway, while adjusting the carb it died a few times, I restarted and moved on until it died and wouldn't restart. I figured maybe I'd flooded it or something - after further attempts I realized I had no spark. Since I have two identical machines I have many parts at my disposal. I've swapped the CDI, spark plug and coil with no luck. I have good resistance readings from the stator and pick up (135 and 110 respectively), I don't have a peak voltage meter but I measure around 53VAC on the stator when cranking. I have a 4 wire stator, not an alternator like the newer ones. Grounds look good, I've checked the kill switch by verifying that it and the ignition switch grounds the black/yellow wire to the CDI. I can turn the engine slowly and see the pickup short the meter as well, seems normal right? So far everything I've checked looks the same on both machines. I've got the service manual and wiring diagrams. Do these readings make any sense? I'm obviously missing something but I'm stumped. thanks!

I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?

Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor.
In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber.
Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut.
If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video.
Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
