1996 350 Wolverine won't start

Recommended Posts

Hello every one, I am new to this forum and need a little help trying to get my 96 Yamaha 350 Wolverine started. I'll start at what I've done. New battery, new starter relay. Checked connections for corrosion, all seem fine. I use it mostly for plowing snow. Use a winch to lift blade. winch works great. I have power at the relay because i can start it with a screw driver if i half to. Neutral light works. Oil pressure light works. The oil pressure light goes out when you press the starter button. But no clicks, nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

If you are jumping it at the starter relay, and the starter cranks....I would start by checking your start buttton. Also, you may want to check the nutral safety switch and there's another swith at the handlebar I believe.

I second Ajmboy's opinion on this matter. I would also inspect all wires in between as well.

Checked the switches, and wires and all seem fine. Handle bar switch is working. Started it with a screw driver, while it was running hit the starter and it ran for a couple seconds, but wouldn't work again. Thought it might be the neutral safety switch. Don't have a wiring diagram to be able to check the switch. The neutral light works properly, don't know if those 2 switches are related. Thanks for the help so far.

I'm not too familiar with that model but you might try setting the the parking brake if it has one or pulling in the clutch if it has a manual clutch. By using the screw driver your probably bypassing all the saftey features it has.

Use a multi meter to track down the opening in the circuit. I still suspect the starter switch or neutral safety switch. Trace the path of the starting curcuit from the battery to the starter, you should be able to find the correct wires by following back from the wires that come out of the start button or key switch. The circuit will run through the neutral safety switch at some point so you should be able to find that too. You can test the start button by taking it apart and manually touching the two wires together. If that doesn't work, just keep moving down either wire untill you find the problem.

      It will not turn over with starter and will not fire while pulling pull start.
       
      The only thing that Ive tested that didnt test correct is the kill switch I read on another forum to test black and Black/white wire for continuity when in off position I did and it shows continuity like it should. Then when you slide it to run it should be open and show no continuity which mine still shows it while in the run position. So I unplugged the CDI just for sakes of doing it and the kill switch then tests correct. So where should I test next without unplugging CDI?

      I am looking for pictures of your carburetors, specifically looking for what type and where the hoses go on the red circles.

      I can't for the life of me find the correct service manual for this unit. It's air cooled, not liquid (oil cooler tho) and every manual I find has the wrong front differential diagram (it does NOT have a 2wd/4wd shifter).
      I'd be eternally grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. I can probably slog it out from some of the exploded diagrams I've found, but a good "do this, do NOT do that" manual would be a godsend.
      Regards,

      Looking for anybody who can point me towards a free service manual for 1998 Big Bear 350. I found the sticky thread but all the links, from 2012, no longer work. If anybody has one please let me know. Thanks

      Somehow I lost all of my spark on my 350Big Bear, its a 1990. It ran well for maybe 3 days! Thought it was the carb. Cleaned it 4 times. It was losing power at midrange. Got worse and worse. Finally nothing!
      Are these good coils? I was thinking I could swap?

      My wolverine has a new carb kit, new battery cranks over and over take it to the point of killing the battery to start sometime.... but it I give a tug on the start rope while I'm cranking it with the starter it fires right up.... any advice?

      Ok new to group and new to quads. I picked up a 88 Big Bear for next to nothing but it has issues. The entire high low revers shifter has been removed. All I have is a bar attached to the linkage. I can shift into all three but I would like to replace or get suggestions. I have looked around but there is limited info or pictures on what I would need to buy or where it even mounts. Any pics of what where and how it works would be great. Or direct me to correct thread.
      Thanks
