2001 yamaha warrior YFM350x

Recommended Posts

I have a Yamaha Warrior 350 in the cam sprocket won't line up with the cam mark on the top end on it. I advanced it Forward 1 tooth and reverse it one tooth. Tries to start but won't. And of course I did the T on the flywheel for top center and it still won't line up.. need help trying to figure out the problem.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but TDC is not at the T but at the line next to the T?  Usually there's a line and a T and then a line and an F depending on the bike.

Yes this bike on the flywheel has a T and then a line and then an F but it only lines up on F so I thought T would be top Center but it's not working.

T is TDC, F is when it fires.  You want to time the cam sprocket to the line right beside the letter T.

If it times correct and doesn't run, then it's not a timing issue.  Look for spark, fuel, etc would be the next basic steps.

It's making real good spark and is getting fuel so that's the only thing I can think of is it would be the timing it's making good compression.. I'll try to Advance it more to see if it will work because when I put on top dead center it barely wants to fire but when I put it on F it wants to fire better..

Have you checked valve lash?  I had one once that was adjusted at TDC 180 off so I had to roll it to true TDC and readjust...it then ran fine.  If you're having to advance it that far I'm wondering if it's trying to fire off cycle.

Or can you adjust the CDI?  Old Honda's you could loosen and advance or retard the CDI ring to change timing.

No I cannot Advance the CDI. It could be the valve lash then I did actually said set it top Center but it's still having very difficult time firing it wants to try but it's just not staying running

Also there is a little bit of oil coming from the exhaust manifold so I don't know if it could be the exhaust valve not sealing right either I'm not sure or if that would cause that problem. It's just dripping from there a little bit.

      1997 Yamaha 350 Warrior, should there be oil in the stator area? Have a no spark situation.

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      Just got a '98 Yamaha big bear 4x4 in working condition (so far). Looking forward for some good information on this site about how to keep it alive.

      So i have an old yamaha bear tracker that was given to me from an old farmer I know. I decided to refurbished it and fix all the quick fixes on it. I am pretty sure that it is either a 1999 or 2000 based upon the original wiring harness. Little did i know when I bought a new to me wiring harness from ebay that it was from a 2003 or 2004. My question to everyone is do I need to have all the stop switch assemblies hooked up? I think there are three on the 03/04 models and only one on the 1999 to 2000. Any help I can get for this would be great. I haven't run it yet due to the motor and crankcase is in two totes.
