98 yamaha grizzly 600 problems?????

Recommended Posts

while riding a few days ago, my quad did great through the mud, but while driving it back home, running about 35mph, it seemed like i lost all power and the quad just died. i put it in neutral and started it back up, drove another half mile and it did it again, i had to have my buddy pull me the rest of the way home. the quad turns over but is acting like its not getting any fuel or maybe some spark plug problem? im not for sure why its doin this, i was thinking it got a lil too wet?, maybe water in places that it shouldnt have any? hope to hear something back, thanks

ive checked the spark plug, and its getting spark.

ive pulled the airbox off and there was no water in it.

i have no clue.

Try taking out the plug and using a hose with a funnel to add like a tablespoon of gas to the cylinder then quickly put the plug back in and see if it fires up. I had an issue with the float and needle not allowing fuel to flow properly in mine ethanol eats away at the materials and any small amount of dirt can cause a sticky needle may need a cleaning or rebuild . Just a thought

Carb cleaner isnt highly flammable and wont act as gas to start the engine and also if you have the air box lid off youll mess up the air fuel mixture setting making it even harder to start better off doing the method I stated above, but anyway good luck

well the problem is in the carb somewhere. the quad is getting too much fuel. but the jets that are in the carb are stock. so im planning on buying a carb rebuild kit and see how that goes, i guess if that doesnt work, then the next step is buying a new carb. anyone got any good sites for buying atv parts? thanks!

Cheap Cycle Parts is the best prices Ive found for factory parts but a new carb is going to be just a tad over 400 bucks, I just bought one for my 98 and if you go that route I suggest you put in an inline fuel filter and also never use gas with ethanol again. It eats the plastic parts up over time and causes issues.

wow didnt realize a new carb would be that high priced for such an old quad. i did purchase a new air filter and in line fuel filter when it does get running again. thanks for the replys!

Hey what I did was take a product call Sea Foam and took off the air filter through 2 cap fulls in the air intake hose held my hand over it in till it choked itself out let it sit for a 5 to 10 min then started it back up and has never run better this stuff is great I use it in all my fuel cans and wheelers it cleans out the gunk hope this helps also almost sounds like you had a fuel vacuum issue check you fuel cap and make sure the tank is breathing right and not causing a vacuum where it would choke itself out Good Luck Greg

      Hi everyone! I'm from New Zealand, and doing up a Suzuki Lt50 for the kids. This is the first bike I've ever worked on, and it's currently not running. Hoping that both Google and this forum will get me through! Haha

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      I have a Kawasaki Bayou 220 KLF220A and I cannot get it to start using the starter button. I have replaced the starter solenoid and the starter relay. I have followed the wiring diagram in the repair manual and it looks like the switch is working well, the neutral and reverse relay have power running through them and appear tp be working correctly. However, I can not find a wire runnng the the starter button that has power on it. Anybody have any idea what the break down is?

      I just watched this video I made ten years ago.  It made me laugh.  I was riding a 1985 Honda ATC 200X.  It's hard to film yourself so I had to position the camera to film me.  May flies out th wazoo, but I HAD to ride.  I hope you get a laugh.
