Joined up today after my neighbor gifted our family a 1988 Yamaha YFM200DX for the boys to ride around in the yard. It's in decent shape but needs a good bit of things fixed to be a safe machine for the kids to learn how to ride. Ordered a bunch of OE and aftermarket parts today to start the rebuild/reconditioning process and have the machine stripped of it's plastics currently. Debating on stripping it down to the frame and doing a full restore on it, just not sure if the boys will be willing to wait that long to ride it around. Neighbor replaced a lot of parts on it, including the carb, which leaks fuel when the tank petcock is left on, thinking this may just be a float issue. Also, as it currently sits, it will not run under load but will idle fine. Going to take the carb apart to clean and inspect it, drain the tank and clean it, then go from there. Lots to do for sure, open to any suggestions if anyone has dealt with similar issues and found the culprit. I've worked on cars for a long time and this is the first 4 wheeler I've owned, so learning as I go.
