Yamaha Moto 4 No start need help

Recommended Posts

Hi all new to the forum I have a Yamaha Moto 4 champ (100cc?) (YFM100) so I've been trying to get this thing to start for awhile honestly I'm running out of ideas so I'll start with the things Ive replaced and done first it was not trying at all and then I put a brand new battery then the terminals broke so I bought some nice copper ones fixed that up so now battery is got good voltage and all that I have checked all the plugs cleaned everything off so anyway it still wasn't trying but I couldn't get the crank case off and I didn't think using fire was a good idea lol so I busted the crank case off on the left side(if you are sitting on it) wierdly enough the flywheel started spinning I thought it was odd but went with it then I replaced the spark plug still wasn't getting spark so I replaced the ignition coil then it was getting spark next the carburetor was really gross I cleaned it out still wasn't working so I in turn decided just to replace it with a new one so I did (PS I never figured out how the fuel lines hook up if someone wants to help with that to lol) also for good measure put a new air filter so then I pressing the button Everytime I replace something and nothing so then I think what if it's the stator so I have no idea what a good or bad stator looks like but me being to rough I broke the wires on the thing but still no changes the fly wheel spins gets compression (I think) getting spark from spark plug idk other tidbits that might be useful I don't have a clutch line so idk if that has something to do with it I do have the break zip tied in to bypass the safety feature also the throttle cable is in fact broken and I'm working on buying a new petcock for my gas tank because my current one is broke I have very limited money this is supposed to be a project before I go to school for welding and automotive tech so I don't have any money to get a mechanic lol but I'm pretty confident in my ability to do anything u suggest any suggestions are welcome I'll edit and submit pics

Welcome to Quadcrazy @Elijah Stone  Thats some write up.

Once you replaced the ignition coil and you had spark the stator should be left alone since the spark is there.

The fuel lines are not difficult to put on, there should only be one fuel line on the left side of the carburetor and the others would be a vent hose that may run up behind the gas tank and another hose would be connected to the bottom of the bowl on the carburetor and do noting but hang down under the frame. It’s called an overflow hose  that allows fuel to spill out of in the event the carburetor had a failure of some sort or the bike is flipped over.  Both hoses would be generally smaller then the fuel hose. 

So what I would do is for now turn the gas off. Pull the spark plug out and test for spark.  Take the spark plug and plug it back into the ignition coil wire and rest the metal part of the spark plug on he engine head. Make sure your kill switch is on and crank the motor. You should see a spark at the plug right at the gap. Make sure it’s plugged in good and touching the metal part of the engine. 

 

If you have spark that’s great, put the spark plug back in and then make sure your fuel lines are properly connected and discussed. If your not sure then post some pics and we will help you along. If you figured it out then turn on the fuel and crank the engine. The bike should fire up just make sure your choke is working properly. 

Unfortunately these things cost money to fix so your going to have to spend a little money if you want to get it back to good.  

Let us know how it goes.  

Good luck  at welding and automotive tech  school. Your going to enjoy it, stay focused and learn as much as you can! 

This will be a fun little project to work on for you as well as learning a lot about the atv world just be careful. 

👍🏻

@Frank AngeranoThank you so much for the reply I do in fact have spark I'm not home rn but when I do get home I will post pics of the fuel lines I just replaced my petcock valve on the gas tank because it was corroded and green and had none of the little things that go into the gas tank I forgot to mention though that my headlight and neutral light will not come on the headlight used to work but now it doesn't so I did replace my Glass fuse holder coming off the postive terminal on the battery with a new one stupid me though didn't check the voltage to make sure the fuses where the same so I'm thinking that might be why my neutral and headlight arnt working but my starter does kick on so idk? Anyway when I get home I will post pics of the fuel lines

      2001 Honda foreman 450s manual shift. i can shift through the gears when the ATV is off, but when I turn it on, I can shift into first, but I cannot shift to second or even back to neutral. Same with reverse. I can get it into reverse but cannot shift out. If i turn it off it will shift back fine, any idea? I just bought this and fear I got screwed over.

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.

      Rescued this thing from sitting in a warehouse the last two decades. Finally got it to fire, but when I put it into neutral to do so its now stuck in neutral, and wont shift no matter how much pushing, rocking, etc. Even with throttle it wont. Range lever on left side will go from H to L, but not to R, and this makes no difference on it being stuck in neutral.

      Any suggestions?

      Hey guys I have a Yamaha moto 4 250 that was running great now all of a sudden I have low power. It starts up and idles great and engine sounds fine no knocking or ticking or anything like that. I can ride it and sometimes its like you flicked a switch and the power comes back for a minute and then it goes away again. I've changed the spark plug, cleaned the carb and it made no difference. I'm thinking the stator could be going bad but id like to find out more before I spend the money on it.

      Just purchased one of these and I have a few questions:  Went to change the air filter and it fell apart, but there were two pieces of the foam wrapping the wire cage - Normal?  In addition there was about an inch of oil in the bottom of the air filter box - again - Normal?  The backing piece of plastic for the wire cage was laying in the bottom of the filter box and the bolt was also in the oil.   I am also looking for a recommendation on what to do with the machine as far as maintenance, it runs well, shifts fine, needs a new battery, but what else should I be checking?  The previous owner had it for over 25 years and does not have any records or memory of the last oil change or any other maintenance other than needing to replace the battery a couple of years ago and placing a car battery on the front rack and running wires to the starter.   Learning curve is sharp, but looking forward to the experience.   Thanks for your input.
