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

      Hey Guys, 
      I picked up my first ever ATV on friday. It's an 89 Big Bear. It has some cosmetic issues, but seems pretty decent mechanically. I did have trouble getting the idle tuned to the book spec of 1,300 - 1,500 RPM. I took the carb apart and cleaned it out. Somebody must have lost the spring for the pilot screw, as it's no longer in the carb. Also, I have a dual cable carb, I noticed all the IPL's show the single cable carb, but I see others on youtube had dual cable carbs. When I would adjust my idle speed screw, nothing would happen. I bottomed it out and it didn't seem to make much if any difference. When i pulled the carb apart I saw the screw doesn't even touch the linkage, it's too short. Do the two different versions have different length carb screws? I'm wondering if somebody lost the ordinal, replaced it with the IPL number for a single cable carb which is shorter, and gave up on getting the ATV to idle. If you hold the throttle just a bit to get it to the RPM range listed above, it "idles" great. Any ideas? Or any links to the dual cable IPL?
      Have you guys have good luck with the aftermarket intake boots? Or is this a buy once, cry once deal? I'm guessing the OEM units last longer, but there is a huge price difference. If you have had good luck with aftermarket, where did you get it? My current boot doesn't seem to have any air leaks, but it's encased in JB weld... 
      I'm getting a 9th digit check sum error on the ATV when I put the VIN in. Has anybody seen this before on a Yamaha? The VIN  number looks original as well as the paint around it. 
       
      Thanks, 
       
      Scott

      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
