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.

      Working on a bayou 220 that has been ran extremely hard it's whole life. Literally had almost an inch thick dirt/oil covering the motor. Yeah that bad. Surprisingly it runs though. I cleaned the carb and tank multiple times. They're clean enough to eat off of. Readjusted valve lash and set timing. Was about 3 teeth off. It cranks good and runs good only problem is I have to cover the carb intake basically choking the hell out of it for it to start. The com choke works fine. It does this each time I start it regardless of temperature both ambient or motor. Wth? Compression is at 115psi I get 130s if I put a little oil in the piston chamber. Please help. Thanks

      I have a Yamaha Big Bear 350 and the reverse doesn’t work, it shifts from low to high easily but it won’t go back to reverse. I’m new to this stuff, so I’ll take any help. Any ideas?

      The VIN on my 2018 Kodiak 450 is not where it's supposed to be. I bought this used. Is there another "hidden" location where I can find it? Need the number for insurance co. Thanks in advance.

      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.

      Hello, 
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Bear Tracker in the shop for repair. I have the service manual but it doesn't have all the information I need to fix the problem. I need to know the voltage output of the stator charge coil and pulse or trigger coil at cranking speed. The wiring diagram color code doesn't seem to match and that is compounded by the fact that the wiring harness CDI connector is missing so I have 7 wires that need to be connected to the CDI. I can not find a circuit diagram of the CDI which tells me where the pulse/trigger coil connects or the charge coil connects. The other 3 wires (black ground, orange ignition coil, and r/b ignition kill sw) also need to be connected. The CDI has a single 8 pin connector and has a P/N 4XE-00 F8T19871 -1122 number on it and I believe it to be OEM. However I think the Stator and pulse coil are aftermarket items. I have resistance tested everything and it all seems to be in spec. but I don't want to miss wire anything and cause damage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
