Cool Mornings....No start

Recommended Posts

Cool mornings here  (high 50's -mid 60's).  The '02 300 Bayou has a replacement Chinese Carb that starts first or second hit at temps over 75 or so.  It wont start in the cool mornings.  Choke at any position, Throttle positions, turning over with the compression relief open a few turns, grinding for 20-30 secs, None helps.  Temp goes up, NO Problem.  Ideas?

Don’t like the Chinese carbs, never have. Any chance the machine has a warmer for the carburetor? Two wires that go in the back/bottom of the carburetor?

Chinese carburetors are not casted like a name brand carburetor. Things internally do not flow like they should.  I know for a fact that they do not perform like a name brand. They will start the machine and it will run at half throttle and brake up a bit and have problems starting etc. 

Your better off locating a used oem and rebuild it per spec including the jets and slap it on. Your chances of finding a used one in good shape is good.

Yep, it has the warmer built in.  I'll have to wire it to use the warmer.   OEM was out of my price range when I need it.  That is a target project though.

Thanks for the input.

Sorry for my confused answer.  Yes, the Chinese one has the warmer. My KLF is not wired for it.  I can probably handle doing that.  This replacement has been perfect to this point.  Runs well at all speeds and idles like a champ.

Oh ok got it now.  The warmer works well from what I hear but the temps you are talking about I don’t think warrant the warmer.   

Just curious have you pulled the plug to check the color ? Make sure your not having a blackened plug that may take a crank or two in order to get spark if that plug is oiled or rich it’s in a foiled state and could be your problem.  That could be from a rich mixture or bad valve seals or rings?  Heck I would even do a compression test to be sure.

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.

      New to Quadcrazy, Has any Yamaha owners had similar issue?
      1987 Yamaha YFM 350 Starts on Pull, but just spins on starter, and won't start.

      '96 Cherokee here and right now I'm dealing with a no start after a few weeks of suspicious symptoms. She's been driven a lot less over the past year and about a month ago she began starting a little slow. I've got an oversized battery in there so usually she cranks right up no problem. I started monitoring batt voltage and saw around 12.04 V with engine off and 14.10 V or so running. Right before I get the new battery I head to Advance and they run a battery/alternator test. Kid tells me my batt is bad but alternator is still good.

      So I lay out the $ and install the same size 34N EverStart Maxx 800 cca from Wally's and the slow start persists. Measuring the new battery with engine off yields consistent readings of just under 12.7 V, so for the past few weeks I began charging the batt at 2A which seemed to help. A few days ago I venture out for an errand and the engine doesn't restart to get me back home. I get no clicks or cranking at all with a key turn. Batt measures 12.67 V at the terminals. Dash gauges seem to react with the key on, voltmeter reading ~11.5 V, although I'm not sure how accurate that is. Fuel pump pressurizes.

      Something that happened right after battery change out, which may or may not help in diagnosing the problem, is that my pass side headlight only illuminated half way while the driver side stayed full bright. I have an LMC Truck aftermarket headlight wiring harness giving 55/100w low high beam. It's the kind where you run the lights straight off the battery through additional relays. Had to tinker with the light harness a bit to get the new batt in and may have compromised a connection? Maybe a ground? Either way the pass headlight started showing full bright after only 1 or 2 occurrences and has been right ever since. With my alternator testing good and a new battery I wondered if maybe a loose connection was draining my voltage. I was in the middle of testing batt V connected vs. disconnected over time but this no start happened before I could get it done.

      Last thing to mention is that recently I've been removing both my fuel pump and starter relays for security reasons. The way it's acting now is exactly like when trying to start with both relays removed. Being that the fuel pump is pressurizing should I consider testing the starter relay? Other than that could I have caused some kind of part failure by removing and reinstalling the relays maybe around 5-6 times over the last month?

      All ears

      Hi all, bike does start with the electric start mostly, but the battery was weak and wouldnt start it the other day so went to use the pull start, to say its hard is an understatement first of all you gotta do a little jiggling about til it catches then pulling it takes some effort now i know im not the strongest fella in the world but this is so much harder than it should be. 
      It does start of the pull just to get the engine to initailly turn is so hard any ideas why its happening or how to fix this,
      Thanks

      I have an older (1987) Yamaha Big Bear 350.  I have arthritis in my thumbs.  Is it possible to replace the accelerator with a motorcycle accelerator (ie. twisting the handgrip)?  This would be more comfortable for me due to the arthritis.
