Compression sounds right on. Does it run any different with choke on or off? Did you premix the first tank of gas? Smoking sounds like maybe too much oil (if its excessive). Also, what does the plug look like if you can keep it running for a few minutes.

What color is the smoke? What does it smell like? What does the spark plug look like. You could be leaking oil into the crankcase because of an improperly installed crank seal, or a leak between the case halves. Or you could be leaking water into the cylinder through the head gasket or cylinder base gasket. Make sure all your bolts and nuts are properly torqued. You could just be getting too much oil from the oil injection. Also, check your timing and flywheel key. Also, I'm not exactly sure what the compression should be, but 110 seems a little low for a fresh piston and bore, but it still shouldn't run poorly. Did you do the compression test when the motor was warm or cold?

Black smoke usually means you are running way too rich, the fact that you say it dies when you choke it, supports that idea. You may be jetted way too rich, or you may have a clogged air cleaner. Also, I am pretty sure that machine has an oil injection system for the 2-stroke mix. Unless that system has been properly bypassed, you should not be running a pre-mix, just add oil to the oil tank and gas to the gas tank.

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      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 am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?
