1993 Yamaha Big Bear 350. Swing axle rubber boot replacement

Recommended Posts

  • Guys, having trouble502095944_IMG_1782(1).thumb.JPG.8ca1c101c8d1ba91df5aa098c32ceb2b.JPG finding the correct rubber boot for my big Bear.  I've ordered 2 of them and both are wrong.  The old one was 4 inches across on the end with the tabs.  New ones are 5 inches across.  Much to big to fit properly.  TIA Hope someone has an idea.

If the other end of the boot you have is right is right, then that 4KB might be the one.

Looking at pictures I see some boots look like the big end is closer to the small end diameter than other boots..  The 2HR looks like it's big end is quite a bit bigger than it's small end diameter. The 4Kb the two ends look similar.

Probably easiest to ask them what the diameter is before you buy though to be sure.

Hey guys new here and just thought I'd chime in since I just finished doing this to my 88s . I ordered both boots from Babbittsonline without an issue  . I did notice that on one bike the boot seemed a little more of a struggle to get it to slip up onto the lip of the trans/engine side . but it did go . Now I didn't notice any slack in either boot on either bike but the one I did 2nd I do remember struggling with it a bit more . Is it possible that there is just an overlooked irregularity because it seems that this has  been tossed around in  another forum .

      Hey guys,
      I have lurked here for about 7 years (thanks for the yearly birthday wishes!)
      I posted 7 years ago that we bought a used Yamaha Bear tracker.. and we have had many adventures since then, but half of them have been repair “Adventures”
      It stopped starting (Even pull start) last year and I tried the basics (Spark plug, clean carb etc)
      I took it into a shop and they did EVERYTHING to get it to spark. New coil, replaced the entire handlebar cluster (Switches, coil, starter switch, neutral safety, and finally replaced the entire wiring harness.)
      It simply won’t even try to start. Pulling the pull cord doesn’t start it. After paying for their time and efforts (Over $1000) I dragged it home dead... This shop only “Fixes” things using OEM factory parts and won’t “Jury rig” anything... so if there was a creative way to bypass the entire thing to just start it, they couldn’t really discuss it.
      I did ask the mechanic when I was loading it up “What would YOU do if this was your ATV at home and you had these issues?”
      He said he experimented with bypassing the kill switched and it turned over. I didn’t think to ask HOW he bypassed the kill switch, but it sounds like that’s my culprit!
      So how do I bypass the kill switch on a 2003 Yamaha Bear Tracker 250? Or, is there a way to Hotwire it so I can start it without the starter button (In case that’s the issue, even though it shouldn’t be since the entire handlebar cluster is new.... it seems haunted at this point!

      At the end of last summer, my 02 Bear Tracker began to run poorly- long story short, the air box cover HAS to be on and sealed... now it runs ok, except it idles poorly, and I began to hear a "chik" noise on deceleration. This has become obvious chain noise hot. Runs great at throttle, poorly at idle. I pulled the cam cover- and the chain has no appreciable slop.... could this be a failing ratchet in the tensioner? Anyone seen this? I'm about to pull the tensioner. I COULD install a manual one, but if the factory one lasts several years, I may go back that way. I'd rather ride than wrench. FYI- ASE Master since 82, blah blah blah- small engines are NOT my bag. All replies GREATLY appreciated!

      I have a 2018 Polaris Sportsman 110cc that my son rides.  We are active riding in the Colorado mountains.  My son struggles to navigate trails with rocks.  He follows my line and occasionally hits the rear end.  Well the pictures show the damage well.  After a weekend of riding almost 60 miles, he hit one rock and nearly ripped the rear axle off.  There was about 1/2" of metal still attached on one of the tubes.  Luckily I have a neighbor that is a big fabricator as his help will be needed on this one.
