We do have a Yamaha tech here, he may chime in with some info, but I also think you would be best off checking ebay or another source for a service manual. I believe they are a must for anyone who is going to be working on their own macnines. You may even be able to find an owners manual on ebay, it will have simple service info like what types of oil to use and where to put it.

OK---i serviced the unit today--got along OK except for one bit of info---------i changed the oil and put in new filter----added 1 and 1/2 qt of oil-----do you measure by sticking it only OR do you stick and then screw the stick in to measure???? I get just above add mark by sticking only and get full when i stick and screw it in----------thx doug

Hondas= screw it down, Yammers=no. make sure to use ATVOIL, NOT car oil.

I always buy a service manual when I get a new rig- there's just too much to remember hahaha

A measuring cup called a Ratio-Rite or similar is a great investment, about 5 bucks. All bike stores will have them- at Harley they're right next to the drip pans...

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s

      Hi guys. I have a problem where the quad will start and run well for about 5 minutes and then it dies. On inspection the airbox has oil in it (quite a lot). The oil is pumping through the cylinder head breather hose. This problem first happened suddenly. I have since done the top end including, piston, gaskets, rings and valves. I have also done the carb (not that I thought that this was the problem). The compression seems normal. The only thing that I can think of, is that I did not grind the valves well enough. Anyone experienced this? If so, how did you fix it? Any other thoughts?

      I WANTED TO UPGRADE THE CARBURATOR ON MY 1992 BIG BEAR 350, SO I ORDERED A NEW CARB FROM EBAY.  ACCORDING TO THE WRITE-UP IT WAS A GOOD FIT FOR BIG BEARS FROM 1988 TO 1996.  WHEN I REMOVED MY ORIGINAL CARB I NOTICED THAT IT WAS DIFFERENT FROM THE NEW CARB MY CARB HAD TWO THROTTLE  CABLES THE NEW CARB ONLY HAD ONE CABLE.  HOW CAN I MAKE THIS CARB WORK ON MY TWO CABLE THROTTLE?

      1996 4x4 Timberwolf rearend width. Can someone with some knowledge of these machines answer this question for me please. Are all 4x4 timberwolves this narrow in the rearend? These tires are so close the right one actually rubs the muffler.  Thinking about seeing if there are any spacers out there for it. I need at least an inch more clearance.
