Warriors (87 and 92), and an 89 Big Bear Issues


Recommended Posts

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.

You need to get the compression reading and go from there. It could be a valve stuck open a bit and not closing all the way or something worse (hope not).  You say it rolls over good so I assume you mean it cranks fast which sounds like low compression for what ever reason.

      My 98 grizzly needs a cdi and  I refuse to pay $200 for a used one. Will the cdi unit for CDI Box For Yamaha Kodiak 400 YFM400 2001 2002 Warrior 350 YFM350X 1997-2001 work on a 98 grizzly ?
      Any ideas

      Hi i bought my first atv last week, mostly for plowing. its a 94 yamaha big bear 350 4x4, with plow, new front axles, carb rebuild and some other stuff for $900. in todays prices, i think it was a pretty good deal. I plan on tearing it down and doing a semi restoration in the summer. its been clearly neglected so i suspect i will need to do a fair amount.
      couple questions. 
      1. parts and manuals, so far i know it needs front shocks, tie rods, brakes, cables, lots of small stuff, whats your guys favorite online atv parts store? where can i find a good repair manual?
      2 - starts and drives great, shifts a bit hard? not sure whats normal because i dont have a point of referance. i have to almost lean back in the seat and lever my foot up to get it to shift, seems like there is either alot of play in something (shift lever itself is tight) or there is a long travel, or it just dosent want to shift. also the hi / low / reverse lever needs to go past the gate a bit to actually shift into gear, and seems to need me to shift into nutral before shifting into reverse (not sure what your supposed to do). also wondering a bit about the history of the machine, because the plastics have a slot for a dash mounted shifter, but the one on it is a gated shifter right above the pull starter. 
      3. seat and plastics repair, seat is quite torn up with a seat cover over it, plastics are pretty cracked up, these items i havent found replacements for for any reasonable price, i dont care a whole lot about asthetics but whats the best way to functionally repair these things? is there reasonably priced replacements somewhere? i plan to bedline the whole thing after im done. 
      4. there was no title, but i did get a bill of sale, will it be difficult to get it titled / registered? (im in mn)
      thanks in advance for your help, looking forward to being part of the community

      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

      I need to replace both u-joints on the front shaft. I'm not sure where to even start. Do I have to punch out the bearing caps on the old u-joints to get them out? IDK That doesn't sound fun. LOL

      Came here for help, If it’s in the wrong place I’ll move. I’ve got a 2000 model Polaris Magnum 500 that runs strong as can be for about 25 mins until warm, then sputters and loses power. Took it to a shop and they say it’s low compression and they will have to swap the entire engine. Seems a bit much and costs more than the entire bike. Was wondering if anyone has seen this and what the fix was. When I hear compression I think of gaskets, not an entire engine. Seems like if it was that bad it wouldn’t have power cold. I’m at a loss. Any help is appreciated greatly.

      Hi I'm working on a 1995 Polaris explorer 400 two stroke, and I had planned to put in a new wiseco piston and rings and just hone the cylinder. I think it overheated at some point and the rings did not move freely in the old piston. The clymer manual I'm using doesn't really have much information as far as honing the cylinders on a rebuild, but I've been doing some reading and it seems that some cylinders are plated with some type of chrome or nickle plating but I'm not sure how to tell if it has been plated and if so with what. The Wiseco instructions say that their rings cannot be used in chrome plated cylinders. Any information on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
