Bear tracker weak spark

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

On my quad (250cc yamaha 4 stroke motor). It's actually a Jainshe Puma 250, but it's just a renamed beartracker. It seams like the spark is a little weak. Starts up and runs fine in warm weather when I don't need the choke, but as soon as you choke it, it has to start the first crank or it won't start without a bunch of sweat that ends up usually with a shot of ether. As soon as it starts and warms up, no problems until it sets overnight or several hours. When I pull the plug and crank it, it has a blue spark, but not the tuff guy look that you see on a car or lawnmower.

The plug is gapped IAW the book (forget what it is at the moment). Could the coil be bad, or bad connections somewhere?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Dave

Connections could definately be the problem, check them all, including the spark plug boot to the coil wire. There are tests you can perform to check your electrical and ignition components. A manual or maybe a dealer service tech can help you with that.

Thanks Folks! Things aren't always what they seem though. The intake boot between the carb and jug was cut a little from a (I guess) too narrow clamp. Must have been that way from the time I installed it and sucking air. Anyway, ordered a new one. Just out of curiosity and cause I saw a bottle setting close by, I smeared a nice coat of gorilla glue around it. Thing hasn't ran better since I bought it.........

Thanks, Dave

      I have a 1996 Kawasaki Mojave KSF250. I have no manual on it and it has a no spark issue. If anyone could give me a hand with this or would possibly have a manual would appreciate it.

      Hello, I just bought a 2006 ttr125 and the guy said it needed a new carb because gas was leaking out the overflow and he couldn’t find out what was wrong with it, I opened it up and messed with the float and I couldn’t figure it out myself so I just ordered a $30 carb off of amazon. I installed it and it seemed to run great around the yard but when I got on the road and started picking up speed it seems to just turn off once I slow down and down shift. I don’t know it’s like if I go to fast it will just completely die and right after it dies it won’t start, the es won’t work nor will the kick start, I have to wait a good 30 minutes before I can start it and it runs fine again. Anything helps! Thanks

      Hello all, 
      i just rebuilt the top end of a 99 Bear Tracker 250 and it can’t get it to hit off of gasoline or starter fluid. Occasionally it will backfire. Right now I’m just trying to get it to fire off without the carburetor like I’ve done a thousand times before with other engines. Usually there is no response, but occasionally I get a backfire through the intake. ISeems like it’s out of time, but I don’t see how that could be possible. 
      Here’s what I know:
      1. compression 120psi
      2. all timing marks are lined up after numerous revolutions. 
      3. Strong spark. 
      4. Valves adjusted correctly. 
      Thanks in advance.
