1995 yamaha warrior 350, high idle-wet plug

Recommended Posts

95 Yamaha Warrior, bored 20 over, Wiesco piston, WB .440 cam, titanium springs,

K&N w/precharger, FMF Megamax II-6 baffles, Hi-flo header, Mikuni roundslide carb w/ ?jet sizes.

My issues....

gas flows from the overflow tube on carb. Not constantly, but does flow a lot of gas when it does.

stutters 1/4 - 1/2 throttle through each gear, but runs smooth if I hit full throttle through all gears. Runs perfect if I go from a dead stop full throttle 1st through 6th (as if I'm racing to top speed).

Very difficult to determine if rich or lean. Header not red. After riding for 5 minutes or so, I've checked the plug. Was white sometimes and black sometimes.

Today, was riding in 1st gear for less than 2 minutes and it began to idle high, went forward about 30 feet without using the throttle(sounded like it was throttling up), then just shut off. Could not get it started again. pulled the plug- it was black and wet. Cleaned it then put it back in- ran fine.

Background- All above mods were done and ran fine for 2 years. Had to do a top end rebuild. After that, ran just fine for another year. Then had someone clean the carb and adjust the valves. Since this time, my quad hasn't ran the same. I know its not jetting cause it ran fine and the over-sized carb came from alba action pre jetted for my area and quad set-up.

Any ideas? needle jet setting?? I use 93 octane with stabilizer. Gas is fresh.

Did they rebuild the carb when they cleaned it? Sounds like the float is messed up or something with fuel level not being consistent.

I'm with Ajmboy on this one, check the float. You are having both rich and lean problems. White plug = lean, black plug = rich. Depending on where the float sticks, you can either be getting too much fuel, or not enough. The high idle is also a sign of a lean condition. I would take the carb back apart and check the float stopper, make sure it and the seat are free of any debris. Also, check to make sure the pin that holds the float in place isn't bent, that would cause the float to hang up too. I would also check the valve clearance since that is the only other thing that was messed with when the machine started running funny.

      Hey y’all, I need some help badly. I have a 02 Honda foreman rubicon 500, it sat for a year (ran out of time) just did a full top end plus piston and rings on it. Got it running but it will not drive forward at all and will only do 2 mph in reverse. The engine or transmission makes a very loud whining when I hit throttle both ways. 
      I need some help I’m very unfamiliar with the hondamatic. 
       
      Any ideas or options?

      I picked up a 2000 Big Bear 400 4X4 that was sitting around that I know nothing about. It will not start. I do have a red light when in reverse. When I take it out of reverse, I do not get a green neutral light, and when I push the start button the red oil light comes on but there are no noises, nothing else happens. How do I test the neutral switch and/or bypass it to see if I can get it to at least crank? And does anyone have other suggestions for me to try?

      So I have an 89 Yamaha moto 4 250cc and when I ride it, itll get hot after like 10-15 mins and then will just die and turn off.
      It's has new carb rebuild, new air filter, new battery, new spark plug so I don't think it's a crack in the spark plug
      Can anyone help me?

      Anybody got a service manual for a 1989 Yamaha moto 4 250?

      Hi guys
      My 87 Bear 350 won't start and could use a hand.
      Turn key on and Oil light turns on and then slowly fades out. (I think this is key to this) No start, not even a tick.
      battery and connections good
      A Solenoid post jump turns it over
      Neutral Safety Switch wire attached and seems good
      It has not had a wire/switch on Rear Brake Pedal ever since I had it.
      Any thoughts on some other things to troubleshoot this??
