1986 Yamaha Moto 4 YFM200DX Diff Oil

Recommended Posts

I just got an old YFM200DX Moto 4 and upon checking the oil in the rear differential I took out I assume the fill plug and it fished out old nasty oil. I plan on flushing the oil and replacing but was wanting to make sure if you drain bottom plug and just fill up to the check plug. Only thing I can think of someone filled it up by the breather on top? Plan on unhooking the hose and blowing it out tomorrow. I also do not have a service manual yet. Also right now the diff vent hose just goes up under the tank to nothing. Does it plug into back hole in the air box? Thanks

That’s where my breather hoses go on my 2000 grizzly. Look for witness marks where it is now. If it passes under a little bar and the rubber is really kinked there like it’s been there for a while good chance that it is in its spot.

      Hi, I just bought a used 1990 warrior and the rear is sagging low like it has a lowering kit but I’m not sure, does anyone know what it could be?

      I know a lot of people say not to use anything but Oem. For the sake of the those who chose not to, or the OEM part cost more than the project, lets hold back negative comments. 
        I just purchased a carburetor that is supposed to be up to OEM specs. The company has a good reputation on eBay and Amazon. The Carb is supposed to be for this bike and jetted exactly. 
        This question should basically go under carb adjustment. I installed the new carb, the bike idles fine. On throttle it sputters half the time and the other half it will rev up fine. Does this sound like the needle is set at the wrong point? Does it sound like the main jet is the wrong size? Or is there another adjustment besides the air/fuel screw thats is 2 turns out? 
        Yes i could truck through old threads and possibly find the answer, but i thought it would be nice to have one tailored to new carb installs.

      Hi there, I am a new member and have never used a forum before. I own a 250 moto 4, has smoked since I got it.
      Oil consumption has increased, I removed the crank case breather pipe and have a catch can under frame at front. Smoke has not changed. also after more than 20 hrs use during lock down there is a very small amount of oil come out the breather.
      Compression seems very high, engine turns not too bad if stopped for up to 20 mins but much more than that it is difficult to turn engine past tdc. (poss almost hydrolocked?) if left for a couple of hours or more it then turns over easier. Also if spark plug is removed. I would have expected oil to come out when turning engine with spark plug out. 
      I suspect oil is getting down valve guides? smoke is worst during warm up. The starter motor has not worked since before I owned it and I have modified pull start as the pressure on it was causing problems.  I am about to check valve clearances this morning before I get going.  I do not want to dismantle while lock down is on as I am using it daily.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated, Dave

      Hello, i have many questions but ill start with a few.
      1. The yamaha 350 from 89ish- 93ish has this dual actuating throttle cable assembly. I can not find a replacement cable for it. One cable had rusted and broke. Do i need to update to the new carb style that has the single cable? If so this sucks because i just cleaned this one. 
      2. Has anyone found replacement struts/coil-overs for these moto 4s?
      3. What cause oil residue in the starter gear housing? Is it normal? 
      4. Does anyone have a service manual?
      I hope to get answers to this stuff. Im the kind of guy that researches and never Have the opportunity to help people. Hopefully this thread will do just that.
