1993 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 2x4 Rear Differential Help


Recommended Posts

I have a Yamaha Timberwolf 250 2x4 that I purchased a while ago as a project. I fixed it up to where everything was working great in my opinion, however when I showed it to a potential buyer he complained about a vibration from the rear drive shaft. (Which I ridiculous seeing as he tried to wheelie it before that) Anyways I took the rear diff apart and found most of the seals and bearings where bad. So I bought a kit off of amazon only to find that it doesn’t have all of the bearings and seals. After finding that I decided to try to find a used good condition replacement but they’re all to expensive for me so is there a better alternative for me, or can someone point me in the right direction to get the rest of the parts?

Usually the cheap rebuild kits don't have the axle bearings, however the axle bearings are normally available at parts stores.  You probably have everything for the diff but missing stuff like bearing #9 below.  I've had great luck measuring the in/out/width on a bearing, hitting google to find a number to cross, and then calling the local parts store.  Bearings are only about $8 in a parts store and are pretty easy to find.

      At a loss...
      Runs/starts great when jumped across solenoid. Solenoid has been replaced. Battery has been tested and is good. Doesnt start with start button but starter will engage when machine is running if button is pushed. Machine also is not charging.  Regulator has been replaced. Stator has been tested and passes all 3 phases voltage and open to ground all 3 phases.  Lights work great with machine running and battery disconnected. Starter solenoid relay has been replaced.
      Any help or suggestion much appreciated. I do not have a wiring diagram or manual which i probably should try and get.
      Thanks

      It will go into neutral, 1st, 2nd, and reverse but nothing after 2nd gear. The shifter moves freely going up completely nothing but when you shift down it works. I’m not sure if it’s tranny issue worth messing with or if I should just buy a new one.  Overall besides that the thing runs like new.

      Howdy,
       
      I was given a 2008 Yamaha Timberwolf by my in laws a few weeks back. Of course my FIL said it hasn’t run in 8 years but all it needs is gas and oil!
       
      That hasn’t been the case...so far I’ve replaced the spark plug, changed air filter, replaced battery, replaced fuel and oil filters, fresh oil and gas. I tried starting her up and no luck, it turns over but won’t get going.
       
      Now I’ve moved on to cleaning the carburetor which I’ve heard is a common problem area. I can’t figure out how to remove the bowl at the bottom, any suggestions? I removed the four screws that I thought were holding it in place but the bowl won’t budge
       
      Thanks and looking forward to getting her running!
      Some photos of what I’ve got going on , this has taken over the garage

      We bought an old atv from friends to bum around on the farm with. VIN number is rusted off. Is there a way to determine the year model from the engine number? We only need the info to buy parts. Please help

      Hi all 
      I'm finding it rather difficult to find 10"x6" front rims. My question is will 12"x7" fit and will there be enough clarence when on full lock?

      Anyone know where to locate these, or generics? The generics I seem to find have the mount on the wrong side versus the hose outlet. PITA!
      Also, is the rear master cylinder rebuild kit any good?

      Have a 2002 Yamaha Bear tracker 250, everything was fine then one day just lost power. Battery is fine, have 12.53 volts coming out, but I have no lights no start no anything. Looking for a wiring diagram

      Hello, I am restoring a bayou 220 here in Brazil, I have a question regarding the rear brake activated by the lever on the left side. The ex-owner connected it in place of the reverse cable and as this is incorrect, could someone show me through pictures where I correctly connect the rear brake cable? Another thing, every time you reverse, is it necessary to activate the reverse key?

      I picked up this ranger cheap because the AWD wasn't working. I checked it out and had 12.5 volts at the diff if I unhook the ground from the harness and run a straight ground from the frame it engages. What could be causing this? Any help would be appreciated!
