1987 yamaha big bear 4x4

Recommended Posts

Need some info about this atv. Looking to trade my 2007 can-am rally for it. The rally is falling apart and the transmission selector needs a new spring so instead of spending 500 for the mechanic to fix it im getting rid of it.

SOOOOO, if there are any problems with the 1987 yamaha big bears i should know about please tell me. i.e. engine problems, front diff problems, it would be greatly appreciated thanks,

Outlander

Seems to me that a 2007 Can-Am for an '87 Big Bear is not a good trade for you. Even though it may have problems, you are talking about trading for a machine that is 20 years older and is likely to have or develop even more probmlems than the machine you have now. It is likely that the BigBear will end up costing you even more to fix and maintain than your current one. If it were me, I would buy the new spring and fix the thing myself. Just my 2 cents.

i was thinking about replacing the spring. but i dont know if i want to waste anymore money on it. just yesterday the carburator just fell out (haha)...and i heard there are valve issues after 150 hrs....i think im just going to sell it for 1200 to a dealer...thanks for the input demon.

My friend has a big bear sitting in the garage. I'm not sure the year..but like DD said...it wouldn't have been worth it. 6X6 would be cool. If you get it, post some pics.

well guys i just took apart the gear case by myself(kind of proud i did it pat myself on the back) very simple design easy to work with....but the 16 dollar spring is a huge design flaw this is the second time the spring broke.... I can't find any pieces of the spring anywhere just metal shavings...but the gears look fine case ha a few very small scrapes in it but its all good...well anyway my point being is that a 16 dollar spring cost me 400$ to replace at the dealer....now i can sell the thing for more...hopefully

I would definately try to sell it to a private buyer, the dealer will never give you what it is truly worth since they still need to sell it again and make a profit in it. I would check classified listings in your area to get a good idea of what other comparable machines are going for. I am glad you decided to fix it yourself for the price of parts rather than paying the dealer way to much for a job that you could do yourself, good job.

      I cannot get this drum off, I already have another drum and backplate on order because I've ruined this one trying to get it off. Completely rusted to splines. I cant fit any hub or wheel puller known to mankind onto these lug studs to try and pull it off, I'm really running out of ideas.

      Hey, working on my gf's lil dvx250 which needed the carb cleaned.  Like an idiot I removed the bracket that holds the choke lever on and the spring that was behind it that I hadn't seen popped off. Anyone have a clue how it goes back on? The manual pics dont show it and I had no luck on YouTube! Thanks!

      Hey everyone! new quad guy here so I purchased a Chinese quad yes I know rookie mistake but all I wanted was just something to bomb around in.
      So I serviced it, changed the oil and filter new spark plug and cleaned the carb and topped up on gear oil and new battery but the issue is I can get it started and go but if I let off the throttle it stalls out, I have 1 or 2 vacuum hoses I can't quite figure out 
      And my 4x4 actuator doesn't engage but I haven't played around with that much yet

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
    • By alexcross324
