1994 Yamaha TimberWolf 250 Help

Recommended Posts

Okay guys I've had this 250 sitting in my shop for a little over two years and finaly found the parts to fix it. I got it running took it off of the table and sat it on the ground. Fired it right back up and it ran perfect. Well wouldn't go in reverse so I got off and pushed it backwards, well she died. Now i'm not getting any spark to the plug???? The guy that had it before me ran a new on off switch and a start button, I don't think that is the problem though. Any ideas????

Thanks Mike but my problems got deeper when I started to do some test. First thing I did was test the switch the other guy put on, every thing was fine. Well I checked the wires going from the stator to the CDI box were good, Well the wires leaving the CDI box goin to the coil arent getting any juice. Bought a CDI box on ebay for 32.00 got my fingers crossed that it'll work.

Okay so I figured out that my problem was my CDI box, well I ordered one off a guy on ebay. Should be here any day. Question is what would have made the other one just go out like that? I don't wanna plug this one up, fire her up and have the same thing happen. What are some things that I should check for before I plug this new CDI up?

Could be a short somewhere or even a loose ground. What year, make, and model is your atv?

Merged your threads together, no need to start a new thread, it is basically the same subject, so just keep adding to the same one. This will make it easier for anyone trying to help you keep track of what your problem is and cut down on clutter in the forums.

That being said, you could do some direct resistance tests on the other ignition components to see if they test good before you swap the new CDI in. You may have to get the machine running to test the regulator/rectifier though, I am not sure if there is a cold test for that, could be wrong though. A repair manual will have specs for the ignition test procedures, if you don't have one, you may be able to get that info from a dealer.

she be a 94 Timberwolf 2wd. Got the new CDI box today and put it on after checking to make sure I had no dead grounds. Hooked the CDI up, put the plastic back on and still no fire. From the motor to the CDI i have fire, but going out of the CDI still no fire. Maybe a the netural position switch. When I put the tester on it in netural it showed hot, when I changed it into gear it showed hot??? I'm gettin pretty :aargh:

Take the plug out, ground it against the motor and crank the machine over, see if there is a spark when you let off of the starter. That could indicate a problem with the pickup coil.

Have you tested the other components, like the coil? You might also try checking the coil wire and plug boot. Unscrew the boot and make sure it makes a good connection with the coil wire, trim the insulation back a little if necessary.

      So just as a general FYI, it might be good to check replacement parts before installing.  If possible, check clearances with a micrometer before going through the trouble of assembly.  I say this as I bought a new driveshaft yoke for a Kodiak because the ujoint dropped a cap and got the yoke in a bind...blowing the yoke and middle drive gear to shreds.  So I replaced the middle drive gear and bought a new yoke and ujoint kit from Caltric.  Caltric is usually pretty solid replacement parts.  The new yoke however was a good 4mm too narrow for inside lock ujoint caps.  Disappointing since it came as a kit from Caltric.
      Ended up taking an angle grinder to the new yoke and thinning material off to get it to the needed 41.25mm opening size.  Sucks having to disassemble everything again and start over but my fault for trusting replacement parts.  Nearly 40 years of turning wrenches and I made a rookie mistake.

      I recently read an article about restoring or at least improving the looks of faded and discolored plastic body parts. In the article it suggested using a 50/50 mixture of boiled linseed oil and paint thinner. You mix it up and apply it with a brush or rag to rub it in and remove the oxidation. I curious to find out if anyone has had experience with doing this and what was their short/long term results of doing so. I would hate to try it and find out that a few weeks/months down the road my plastic body parts self destruct.

      Damn, it took 30 years of driving to cause my first accident, and on Friday the damn 13th. Did a low speed rear end into the back of a lifted truck and got into it's trailer receiver. The only place it made contact with was at the very front center of the hood close to where it latches. Unfortunately the impact was enough that there's a longitudinal hump in the middle of the hood now, bowed 6 inches on each side above the quarter panels, which weren't involved at all thank God. Both my headlights are cracked at the top, but not because they got hit; I think it was because the hood and it's latch was pushed back during the collision possibly deforming the support structure, causing the to separate. The hood is lifted up about 3 inches above each headlight and when looking in at the support material just behind each headlight, one side shows cracks and the other cracks and about a 1/2 gap in the material. Can't tell but it may resemble fiberglass, not really sure? My best guess is that the whole front bumper is gonna have to come off and that entire front support piece be replaced. Any advice on how hard this can be? I do a lot of my own work but I really don't want to be getting into this especially with the weather getting so bad now.


      When I go junkyard shopping for parts, what year Tauruses are compatible with my '02?

      Hi everyone.
      Currently have a 2004 King quad 300 4wd.
      There's a few parts I need to get 4wd working again and also have a crack in the engine crankcase(big trucking rock). 
      Replacement engines are horribly expensive so looking for a half decent site to buy parts /kits that also have detailed diagrams and part numbers.
      Going to disassemble weld crack and give the engine a freshen up.
       
      Any recommendations please

      I just recently bought a 1994 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x4 from a buddy who had the wheeler sitting in his garage for 7 years. I got it home and fired it up pushed it out of the garage and tried to shift it and it wouldn't shift. First it would click like it was shifting, but the wheeler wouldn't move and when I hit the gas it revved up like I was in nuetral. After trying some more it became stuck in 1st gear and wouldnt shift at all. But it later broke loose agian and acts like it is in neutral again. I took the motor off the machine to make it easier to work on.After asking friends they were convinced it was a clutch problem but after opening up the casing for the clutch I don't see anything out of the ordinary and am concerned that it may be a transmission problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.
