03 Warrior Trouble

Recommended Posts

My friend bought a 2003 Yamaha Warrior 350 not running. The last owner was having carb troubles. He put a new needle and seat in it to try and cure the problem but it didn't do the job. I pulled the cover off the air cleaner box and it was half full of gas. I took that off and dumped the gas, without the air box on I turned it over and it started right up. I assumed either there was something between the needle and seat not allowing it to seat correctly or the float height was set incorrectly.

I pulled the carb, cleaned up where the fuel comes into the carb and against the seat. After that I put the carb back together and put a clear plastic hose on the drain pipe and loosened the screw on the bottom of the fuel bowl to see how high the fuel would go. From what I have read the fuel should be as high as the fuel bowl surface. After a couple of adjustments I had the fuel so it would stop at that height. When I put the carb back on and got everything back together it ran fine again for a few minutes and then would not idle and died out. At this point I saw fuel coming out of what I believe to be a breather on the top of the carb. There is a black hose connected to the pipe which had the fuel coming out of it.

What would cause fuel to be able to make it up this high in the carb? I checked the airbox again at this time and there was no fuel in it.

Check your pilot air jet. Weird. Air pressure must be pushing the fuel up to the breather outlets. But why? To rich maybe. Sorry not to be a lot of help but you got me curious. Let me think about it.

your sympton points to a float valve problem check to for excessive play with pin and pin holder

if okay moose make a rebiuild kit for it

you also may be experiencingspin back though the intake so check your valve clearance

with that much fuel in air box i would change my oil due to fuel contamination

spark plugs may also be foul due to excess fuel

      I bought my big bear in 2009, never had a bit of problem with it until last year. It quit starting but still would click when I tried to start it. I replaced the solenoid, the cdi module ( it was burned on one corner) and this year replaced the battery. I have all lights but still will not start and I do not have the clicking when I try to start it. Can anyone give me any ideas what to try next? I haven't had any luck finding videos about the 2008 Big Bear. I'm trying to avoid the expense of sending it to the shop.

      Hey all new to the forum.... We ended up picking up a 2006 Suzuki z50 quad sport and took it camping this weekend. The guy said had a new top end and just put on a new belt. Seem to work fine for a little bit and then it lost power at the rear wheels. Belt was not in bad shape took a look but it just did not seem to have enough power to get my little guy moving. I pick up the rear end tires would go. Set it down lacked all power.   Any help would be greatly appreciated it did run like a top also.      To add to the bad news on the way home I ended up losing the seat so if anybody has one even if it's in rough shape would love to get it or if you have any ideas open to suggestions......

      hey I'm dave westfall I'm new I just became an official member of this site a few minutes ago. Ive been crazy about quads and bikes since I was about 3 and ive always done my home work on them figuratively speaking. I would say for comparison to the common man that I am pretty knowledgeable about them. its been my passion about most of my life. I love talking about quads and bikes so if anyone out there would like to talk with me about mechanical subjects or about person experiences while riding or just shoot the breeze please feel free to chat with me. I'm looking forward to it.

      I recently bought a 2000 warrior that needed motor work. I got it all put back together and can't figure out why I have no electric coming on, it has a new battery with 12.5v the fuse is good and I believe I have all the ground wires connected. Any help or suggestions?

      Hello all I'm new to the site. I'm asking for suggestions on building my 1999 warrior. I picked it up for a song at $200. nothing wrong with it other than it needs tires and a tune up. I have about $800. To put into it, other than tires and an exhaust any suggestions. This is my first sport quad I'm used to utility quads. Thanks for the suggestions
