Moto 4 sub trans questions

Recommended Posts

Was given an old moto 4 350 a while back and got it running but had problems with the sub trans being stiff, so stiff the we have broken the shift lever off of it and was just trying to find info about possible lockouts and any info to free it up and get it working again. It's currently in high and is moving around find but would eventually like reverse back

There will be some sort of interlock to prevent it going into more than one range at a time, and on some models of yamaha that interlock gives trouble.

The resident expert is a guy in here called MarkinAR..  If you message him he will probably be able to talk you through what to check.

@Samual Andrade, Man, it's been forever since I've been into one of those.  The last one I can remember kinda like that was a Big Bear 350 and it had two linkage adjustments on the right side of the motor.  It really sounds like you have some kind of linkage adjustment issue or something like that.  Where was the hi/lo/reverse switch on those?  Top of the tank?

My apologies for slow response times, I'm not on here a whole lot any more, just kind of in and out.

No worries on the response time I'm in no rush and surprised to get a reply at all lol yes the high low is a big shift lever on the left side of the tank, like center console shift in a car. I've seen the linkage points on the motor but don't know how to adjust it and didn't want to just start loosening stuff because it's currently still in high and does run and drive, would be nice to have reverse back though lol

      So I have an 89 Yamaha moto 4 250cc and when I ride it, itll get hot after like 10-15 mins and then will just die and turn off.
      It's has new carb rebuild, new air filter, new battery, new spark plug so I don't think it's a crack in the spark plug
      Can anyone help me?

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s

      Hi all,
      Looking for some help on a starter/bendix issue. Can Am outlander 450 2017. While cranking to start, the starter spins and engages into the ring gear. After a few seconds the bendix retracts while still spinning and there is no damaged teeth on the drive pulley.
