1997 Yamaha Warrior exhaust valve

Recommended Posts

I have this 97 warrior that was running and just died, no compression, I pulled it apart and the exhaust valve isnt closing all the way, It appears the rocker arm isnt coming back all the way, preventing the valve from closing. It doesnt seem to be a problem with the cam. I put a light in the head and at top center I can move the cam between the valves like it should. The rocker arm just seems to stop short of coming back, leaving pressure on the valve spring. I am unable to see what is stopping the rocker arm. It does not appear to be the cam.??????

Any thoughts???????

Take it apart and inspect all the parts, you will probably find the problem in the process. Also, look closely at the valve spring and retainer, something may be broken there.

I just got another head. I had it running like a charm. It was idling then I heard a LOUD PING then it died. I forgot to tighten the timing sprocket cam bolt. The pin came out and it broke the end of the cam. I replaced the cam put the head back on. No compression. I took it back off to find the intake valve got bent. Had that replaced. Put it back together and running. I had to take the metal from the cam out of the motor. I took the cover off and retrieved the metal pieces.

      doesn't idle at times but sometimes when it does as soon as I touch the throttle it just shuts off, what could possibly be the problem? I thank you very much for any help, Thanks.

      I have a 2008 loncin desert storm that wont stay running.
      When it ran it ran rough and backfired a lot.
      Now it will only start with throttle and there's a lot of unburned fuel (white smoke), there's also compression comming out the airbox. Is it the carburetor that is broken?

      Hi I just got an Polaris sportsman 500 4x4 ATV the other day. I got it real cheap but I started to go into it because it didn't have compression so I bought a new piston and ring kit for it and installed it, but now when I try to start it all it does is shoot fire out the exhaust or the intake of the carburetor. And a timing is top dead center.;I think I can't really tell another way if it is or not. when I put it together I made sure to piston was on top and the cam lobes where facing down where are the cam sprocket is facing up. It has gas and spark. It did start a couple minutes ago but it didn't stay running and now it won't start. Do you think the valve need to be adjusted more to close better?I'm fixing to try that out and if that don't work what is the problem? Also I made sure everything was together good and right and change the oil and changed out the radiator fluid.
