Yamaha Raptor: Simply Won't Move...

Recommended Posts

OK, so I was riding my ATV and stuff..Recently I just installed a new Big Gun Rev Box thus making the RPMs rev higher and i Noticed that when i try to accelerate rapidly it really winds pretty high before going to a more normal tone.

So it starts well and you can find nuetral easily and all that stuff but when you go to shift into first or any gear for that matter; It just revs and the chain or anything will not move. I know its not stuck in Nuetral because the light goes off when you shift down but you still can't go anywhere.

Any Ideas?? I was thinking that the clutch is done possibly?

Think it could be the new Rev limiter that blew out the clutch or what?

Welcome to the site, I really don't see how the rev box would cause your tranny to go out. Maybe just bad luck. I would try taking the rev box out, put it back to how it was and try. If your quad runs fine without it, there's your answer. If it does the same thing you know you need to start digging in the tranny.

Ya i'll see if putting my old rev box in would do the trick. I'll keep you posted, now i just have to get to my quad which is broken down at a friends house : )

Hey, I don't think its the rev box or anything. My raptor is an 04' and its been raced and rode pretty hard. So i'm thinking that the clutch is just worn out which is causing it to slip. So i think i'm going to buy a new clutch. Does that sound about right?

Yeah, but I would still test it without the after market rev box. You never know what a faulty box could do. It would be a cheap fix if it is the box rather than replacing the clutch and seeing that it still does it. Eliminate the simple stuff.

replace the rev box with your oem box, see if that is the fix for the high rev u were talking about. as far as the clutch well id check and see if the plates are burnt and make sure everyhting clutch wise in good

Do any of the other gears Pull?? that sounds like the classic 660 tranny nightmare:confused: if its not your clutch, 3rd gear is the most common to drop first, but not all the time, especially if rode hard or raced. Good luck with that aspect. now the rev box is a different story, they not only extend the revs, but they also change the spark curve, if it doesnt sound right, then its probably not right, changes in timing could cause other existing issues to surface(leaky valves, piston slap) but also they could be more minor like air/fuel mix or octane deficiencies causing spark knock from the newer more progressive spark timing. Good luck with it! Keep us posted!

you dont need a rev box on a 660 [is it a 660? no garage] you need a pipe and some jets. that's a torque engine, not a screamer.

clutch should not fail all at once without some weird noises or smells. Check the oil, I mean SMELL the oil. It will tell you.

Raptor trannies were only "bad" in 01, I have one I bought brand new, so does one son, no problems, and he services his after I badger him for 6 months to bring it here so I can do it! hahaha

Only 01 has different first and second gear ratios too, and no limiter on reverse [that can be scary].

Let's be specific about what you ride and then we can go from there OK?

Build your own page here buddy, so we can see what you have! It's fun!

:wink:

So i just got a call back from the shop..They said New clutch kit, Rear brake Disc, Calibration kit or something like that. and just about an hour and a half of labor for each part and with a grand total of.............................850$ dollars. I think i'm going to do the brakes myself but i'm not touching anything to do with the clutch. So i guess thats that, Unless anyone wants to come help me with my clutch : )

      Anyone know where I can get a free download? I had one a month or so ago on my 'puter but one day it flipped out and I lost it. I gotta put the top end of this 450 together (hopefully today) and I need some info. I've searched and searched this morning, but, I can't find one. Thanks!

      It appears that the Service Manual thread at top of forum is dead as all the links no longer work.  I'm actually looking for service manual for a 2000 KVF300 Prairie that I just picked up.  Does anybody have link to one that they can share, or know where I can find one?  Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hi I have a YAMAHA RAPTOR 660R 2003
      I have taken of my Air filter and sprayed in my air inlet some carberator cleaner while starting it. That causes some problems. It struggles to start now. Please look at my attachedment video. 
      What can I do now.?

      Hey Frank I posted some pictures of my stator from my Raptor660r and I need some help,here are some pics of the numbers I got from the stator the 494 is ok,that's from the white/red & white/green wires but from the white to white I was getting no reading and from the blue and red wires also no reading, so it's most likely done right?

      Purchased a 2008 Yamaha Raptor 250 for my son about 1 year ago and have been having problems with the starting system ever since.
      Since owning for one year we have gone thru 2 starters and 2 starter gears. Now its spring 2019 and time for a third replacement. Am starting to think that we may have a more serious issue.
      Upon replacing, the starter and starter gear, its starts fine, then after about 10 starts, you start to hear a bit of grinding. The grinding slowly gets worse until the teeth on the starter and the starter gear become trashed.
      I've heard possible solutions from the starter clutch needing replaced to the casing for the starter gear shaft being out of spec?
      I've also noticed that here is no difference or change if its in gear or not.
      I just replaced the trans clutch as well.
      Any suggestions?
