Yamaha Bear Tracker 250 Where to start?

Recommended Posts



Go and  buy an easy out kit and drill it out with the approximate size bit and back it out.  
Heat will be key here so tread lightly.  Drill out the center of the stud carefully and go in with the easy out.

I posted a pic of the extractors I have. Aren't those easy outs?

I had that bolt laying around, started to use the ezout, but felt like it was gonna break. I just loosely bolted the same header pipe on to see if it worked.

I found a used one for $30 on ebay

Thats a good price for the pipe. 
So were you able to get the bolt out at all or did you have to completely drill and tap?

I tried to remove it, but felt like it ezout was going to break off, so I just drilled the whole thing out.

I have this clearcoat that's for motorcycle plastic i believe. Wonder is this would work for the plastics? More importantly,  wonder if its flexible?

Did the rep specify gloss over satin or semi gloss?

Did you sand in between coats?

I have one can of satin.

No difference in anything other then the finish.  The gloss was too shiny for my liking.  
I water sanded first and and sprayed two coats.  15 min in between coats while it was still tacky.

Thats whats on the big bear i showed you.  
Worst case if you don't like the satin you can hit it with a can of gloss as a third coat.

@Gina Owings welcome to Quadcrazy. 
Sounds like a nice deal for $200 bucks. 
 

Im sure we can help you out with this.  There are a few artic cat people here that know there stuff.  
But first off go to the home page and start a new topic on this so its easy to track.  

Post a few pics and whats going on and we will see what we can make of it!

So, I hit the bezel with clear after I outlined the lettering with a silver sharpie. It turned out ok. I thought a d thought about it and decided to paint the plastics because they are so faded that I thought the clear wouldn't do the trick. I'll post more when I'm done.

So far yes. I'm not sure if doing just the clearcoat would have brought them back or not....

      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.

      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.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?
    • By Bronson Weddle

Thank you for the help in advance

      I have a yamaha beartracker 250 (yfm250) its not running right. starts fine mostly ...idles but if i give it gas it boggs out and dies before it even can carry its self ... I cleaned the carb ... put everything back and same issue. so i bought a new carb and intake boot.... replaced both things and still the issue persists.  So i have a new carb .... does the Air fuel mixture need to be set on the new carb? If so how do i do that? i ave looked everywhere for details on my bike and carb but cannot find anywhere that reads that the skrew needs to be adjusted out to  7 full turns or somthing to that effect..
       
      The bike ran fine until bad gas was put into it... i did remove and empty the gas tank. removed petcock cleaned and rebuilt that.....
      i also noticed that the new carb ....the bottom skrew for draining the bowl was closed all the way when i got it.. carb wouldnt get gas until i loosened it... now the bowl will drain ... i thought that that float stops this from happeneing....am i wrong?
