2001 yamaha warrior YFM350x won't fire up

Recommended Posts

I have a Yamaha 350 in at once to try to fire up but won't. It's getting gas fire air and it has a lot of compression but still struggles to start check the timing it's top dead center valves are good valves are adjusted everything's working but won't fire I put my hand over the carb suck in gas and it tries to but it makes a lot of black smoke. Also when I put my hand over do you carb and tried to start it there's black black nasty stuff in the gas. So I don't know if it's trying to burn too much or what it is the gas tank clean and it anything to do with the gas it's with it firing. Took the spark plug out and it's pure black. What is dried up black not nasty corroded wet looking. Need help to solve the issue

Welcome to Quadcrazy @Chase Cook  It sounds like a typical carburetor cleaning. Have you taken the carburetor off of the machine and broken it down to clean it ? 

Also have you looked into gas tank to make sure it’s clean and no rust and junk inside and the fuel valve is free flowing ? 

That would be my first move. Throw a fresh spark plug in as well and my guess is it will run fine.

Yea start simple, smell gas in tank so make sure it's not diesel or have water in it.  Clean carb, black crap in gas sounds like gaskets in carb going bad or some other source of dry rotted rubber.

I'd replace gas lines and fuel filter, clean tank and carb with some carb cleaner, check carb gaskets, throw it back together with some fresh gas and fire it up!

      Hello Folks....new to the forum.  I have two Warriors (87 and 92), and an 89 Big Bear.  Looking for some help with engine issues on the warrior, and my 89 Big bear backfired and died. Got spark, got gas, seems to have compression, (but haven't tested it yet...next). She rolls over good, maybe too good...seems soft. Have spark and enough compression to blow gas mist out the plug hole when cranking. Suggestions, Been running great since we got it.

      So I dug my warrior out of storage replaced the carburetor with one off Amazon & it was running great. Last week it didn't want to start it would crank & I could smell gas but nothing. I replaced the starter,stator,solenoid,spark plug & coil & resistor but still not starting. Checked the stator and its at 30 ohms tried using starter fluid but nothing. I am completely lost and could use some help thank you

      Hello All,
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4x4 trying to get fixed up so my grandson can go out in the woods with me.
      We have owned it over 10 years.  It got harder to start, until it finally would not.  Replaced the carb.  Right afterwards, it started and ran nicely, but after turning it off, would not restart.  Tonight I used starting fluid and ran, then died.  Adjusted the idle up a little, used more starting fluid and ran great.  It idled about 15 minutes.  Turned it off, and restarted.  Ran it around the yard about 5 minutes.  Turned it off, and would not restart.
      Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you.

      Hello everyone,
      Im new here, this is my first post and Im trying to figure out how evrything works on this site so I please let me know if Im doing anything wrong.
      I have a couple Yamaha's but this post is in regards to my 02 Grizzly 660, I have an electrical draw somewhere that is taking my new battery down rather quickly. I have tried to locate any short by checking each circuit but was not able to locate it that way. Im installing a battery cut off switch which brings me to my first question, dont these switches usually go on the Negative terminal?
      My next question is, can anyone tell me if this year and model has any history of electrical shorts that might help me locate the culprit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
      Finally, Im looking forward to being a member of this site and hopefully helping others as well as learning some things myself, so greetings to all!
      Best wishes to everyone!

      So, I got this 07' Polaris Outlaw 90 in the shop to rebuild top end and transmission. Replaced all bearings and gears in the transmission. Replaced cylinder and piston with brand new parts. Put the engine back on the frame and fired it up. Started great, but had a taping sound in the lower crank case. pulled the flywheel cover off and found the flywheel was wobbling and hitting the stator. I then replaced the stator and flywheel with brand new parts. Timing is all set on the timing marks now, but when I turn it over it kicks back when it fires and ends up stripping the starter idler gear. I've replaced the starter gear once already and now have to replace it again. Is it possible that the timing marks on the flywheel are off or maybe this flywheel is not for this exact model? Thinking of advancing the timing to try it, but don't want to keep going through idler gears.
