1997 Yamaha Warrior reverse no longer working??

Recommended Posts

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. NOW my reverse no longer works. It almost seems electrical. I don't think I moved or touched anything when i took the metal out of the motor????:aargh:

Thank you! Could this be mechanical and not electrical? It sems more electrical because as soon as I start to move it into reverse it dies like I shut off the quad.??? It used to work before I replaced the head and pulled out the metal from the broken cam.

Thanks for everything.

Sounds electrical to me, could have something to do with the rev limiter malfuntioning, or it could be a switch like Ajmboy said. Check the wiring too, you could have damaged the insulation on a wire and you may have a short somewhere.

Your Reverse switch (located on the reverse hand shifter ) is bad or disconnected. i.ve fixed lots of these.This happens to many ,many warriors.Try disconnecting the wires coming from the reverse switch (l/h lower side)and the wire coming from the reverse lever switch (r/h upper) and grounding them to the frame. this will ensure the start cut out relay is working or just put the relay in your hand and feel it activate as the motor is cranking.

      I have an '02 Taurus with 85k miles on her that I just bought.  Today when I was checking something under the hood I noticed this metal line cold and dripping with water...
       

       
      I had the air on but turned to the position of arrows pointing out of the dash and floor vents only.  The defrost or a/c function was not selected.  It seems to be doing it consistently.  I haven't traced all the parts of this car's a/c system yet but I don't know of anything else under a hood that turns cold and sweats.  Why would my compressor be working when it's not selected?  What tests should I run?

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob

      Just picked an '03 Bayou 300 2WD.  It runs ok, needs a little help though. Maybe someone can answer some questions for me.
      1. The choke "off" position is the lever all the way right, correct?
      2. The choke seems mechanically... funky. It has a little valve clamp around the rubber boot where it goes into the carb, seems kind of janky, I don't think there's typically a valve clamp on that part? The engine seems like its running really rich, smoking a bit, so I wonder if I can just completely remove the choke cable to see if that's part of the issue? But I don't fully understand the choke needle setup. Is "choked" when the needle is being pushed in, or pulled out? Like it I chopped the cable just outside the rubber boot by the carb, would I be permanently choking it or permanently unchoking it.
      3. I've read that I can tweak the air/fuel screw and maybe fix the rich mix. Where is that even located, and if it's behind a cap that I have to drill out... where is that?
      Thanks for any tips
