2001 Yamaha Kodiak YFM 400 - Choke lever doesn't stay in position


Recommended Posts

Its possible that your choke plunger could be stuck in the bore, if not stuck completely just kind of sticky pulling the cable back. I would try taking it loose from the carb to see if its working smoothly. You can see here mine was actually stuck took me a minute to get it out, cleaned it up good and no more problems.

Is your choke lever mounted on the left handlebar, under the switches? if it is the thumb-style lever I recently fixed one of those.

See the link: there's a special washer setup that gives it friction to stay in the on position when required. Parts 13/14 did the trick.

      Soon to begin working on a 2002 (i believe) Bruin 350 i recently got back. Reportedly will shut-off while driving it, and blows a fuse (i have not gotten a battery, and begun diagnosis myself yet).
      Was told if they change fuse and it goes again for a while until it happens again.
      Figured it was worth asking here if anyone has had a similar experience, and determined the cause (worth a shot right?)? TIA.

      Hey all back again with my 1989 moto 4 250.
      After putting a new carb on it it's really sputtery, it has new gas and I'm wondering what to tune on the carb to make it idle better. I've attached a video to describe the issue more. The bike is still work in progress but I think the video gets the point across. Thanks!

      The 2024 ATVs are out and I was just looking at the websites for Yamaha and Suzuki. The Grizzly and King Quad have come a long way, probably two of my favorite quads over the years. Both of these come with power steering but I almost like the King Quad styling a little more. The plastics haven't changed much over the years either, mayeb a little more rugged. The King Quad racks are more like the Polaris plastic racks (I think they were the first to introduce these) but on a closer look, I think its just plastic covers over the traditional metal racks. The Grizzly still keeps the old style metal racks. I like the display/instrument panel on the Grizzly more.

      2024 Yamaha Grizzly

      Thoughts on these two? Here's a pretty good comparison of both 2023 models. I didn't know some of these things like no seat latch on the Grizzly and hydraulic rear brake vs cable. Good video to watch if you are consideting these:

      I have a Yamaha beartracker 250 that I can’t seem to get running right
      i am after replacing the spark plug, carburettor, and the carb boot to the engine when she starts she revs up like mad  even when the mixture screw on the carb is fully in when running she pops and stalls and won’t rev up 
      has anybody have any idea what could be wrong with it thanks

      I just want to clarify that i was doing the timing correct. I wanted to adjust the valves, so, I removed the spark plug, I removed that little black plastic cap on the side, then, i turned the engine counterclockwise until the "T" lined up with the small groove on the threads where that black cap screws in. Then i checked the valve clearances.
      So, what is the "F" mark for?
      I hope the "T" was the right mark to use.  lol
