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.

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      Well, it overheated then started blowing white smoke!!
      I have it torn down & the cylinder appears to be warped. Going to have the head checked out next but in the meanwhile... Does anyone have the torque sequence/specs for the head bolts??
      TIA

      I bought a 2011 Crown Vic with 300k miles 12 mos ago and I'm wondering how to approach servicing the timing belt. I know very little of it's past maintenance records other than what I've done with it this past year. Basically I'm wondering if I should go ahead and attempt to replace it now, or wait til something starts to go wrong. I don't know how timing belts typically go bad...if they just break or start to stretch or what. If this is an interference engine I'm imagining a fairly bad event so I'd like to get educated and be pro active about it.

      Second...Scotty Kilmer teaches that the worst wear an engine sees after changing the oil is before the oil gets pumped back into the filter and then into the engine components during the first engine restart. But he says if you disable the ignition spark somehow when cranking for the first time again, the lack of combustion in the cylinders helps with reducing this kind of wear quite a bit. I don't have an owner's manual and I'm not sure what fuse to pull to disable combustion ignition, or if removing a fuse would be the best way to do this. Any opinions on how this should be done?
