1990 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4X4 Shifting Linkage

Well, I’m completely stumped! I’ve been rebuilding a 1990 Big Bear 350 4X4 and finally got reverse to work. Here’s the strange thing, the shifting pattern is all wrong. Reverse is with the lever all the way forward and the forward position is down. What’s the issue? What linkage is backwards? Your help is greatly appreciated!

That top photo the cable looks like it has a bit of a sharp bend in it.. Perhaps it gets realigned and attaches to the shift lever differently. The bottom lever looks like it has to be that way or it will hit the case huh ?

I don't know anything about yamahas.. they aren't so popular around here..  Markin looks in from here time to time, but if you post in the yamaha specific thread you might catch him easier..

      I just brought home a used 2005 Yamaha Big Bear 400 4x4. It needs front wheel bearings, and a new choke cable. I think i can handle those two items. However, when i went to look at it, it ran good, shifted good, brakes all workds great, but at home when i started it, it would idle nice, but when i gave it gas it seemed like it was flooding out and would die. If i just gave it a little throttle it built up RPMs but any more throttle it began dying out again.
      any suggestions why it's doing that?

      Hi there.
      I have a 2002 Bear Tracker that doesn't spark.
      I want to test the CDI box but can't figure out how to test it.
      The CDI box is one that has a plug, with eight poles (see picture).
      Does anyone know how to test?

      Hey all,  I've been working on getting up enough posts to download the service manual, but in the mean time, maybe someone is interested if giving me a few deets in a reply?  If not, no worries.
       
      I'm look to confirm a couple things that I've picked up from Google searches.
       
      First, I've heard that the factory mixture setting on the carb for this bike is 2 full turns out.  Can people confirm?  I've also heard that it's a fuel mix valve, not air, so screw in to lean, out to richen?  Is that correct?
       
      And for the valve clearances, I've heard two different specs, one is intake 0.004" and exhaust 0.006", and that other I heard from a youtuber who claimed this bike had 'very tight' valve clearances, said 0.002" intake, and 0.004" exhaust.
       
      If anyone wants to comment on the above, I would be appreciative, if not though I'll keep posting until I can download that service manual

      Finally getting around to the Yamaha Big Bear that followed me home in August. It is a mess. I got it off of marketplace, the add stated " runs like nothing is wrong the only thing that's wrong is it needs a new wiring harness". So iv been looking for a new wiring harness although it came with a wiring harness that was out of the bike, so I assumed he had ripped it out. All the plastics were off and no screws or bolts to reinstall but they were in good shape. The coil, voltage regulator and starter solenoid was missing but came with new one. So I go out expecting to start installing the wiring harness and find out its still in tact with these parts missing. The first thing I found was the engine was stuck and there was no spark plug in it. I noticed when I bought it that the pull starter wouldn't rotate the engine but he assured me the engine wasn't stuck that there was something wrong with the pull starter, I was skeptical but took him at his word. I didn't check it that closely because I was really just buying it for the tires and wheels they were worth twice what I paid for the bike. Im a little new at buying on marketplace and am just angry that someone would lie like that, now I don't know if anything is really wrong with the wiring harness, im probably too trusting I usually trust people until they give me a reason not too. I would have bought it anyway, if I go to the trouble of hooking up my trailer and wench and driving there its coming home with me, long as its a Honda or Yamaha I can fix it. It took PB Blaster about 24 hr and I got the engine freed up, and it has good compression, using ye ole thumb over the hole test, and the pull starter works fine Thats enough of that, now for my real question, before I go to the trouble of chasing the wiring problem down I would like to see if the engine is ok , is there anyway to feed voltage directly into the cdi to make it spark.
