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.

      I bought my big bear in 2009, never had a bit of problem with it until last year. It quit starting but still would click when I tried to start it. I replaced the solenoid, the cdi module ( it was burned on one corner) and this year replaced the battery. I have all lights but still will not start and I do not have the clicking when I try to start it. Can anyone give me any ideas what to try next? I haven't had any luck finding videos about the 2008 Big Bear. I'm trying to avoid the expense of sending it to the shop.

      Here's what just came out of the old '11 700 Grizz...



      The pics indicate some kind of build up on 3 surfaces...the base ring, and on both the electrode and ceramic opposite where the strap attaches. What condition does this suggest?
      Also, this article...
      How to read Racing Spark Plugs - Dragstuff
      indicates since there's no color change in the middle of the ground strap that there's some type of temp problem. Or does this not apply as the article is talking about racing spark plugs?
      Thanks
