2003 Yamaha Raptor 660 Backfiring

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have a Yahama Raptor 660 2003. I bought from my friend it wasn't working when i bought it. All I did was take the carb out and cleaned it, then took the two bowels out and cleaned that. Once I did that then it started. But when you rev it up it back fires and sounds like it has a hard time keeping up, sounds like its going to die. but it sounds fine when at idling. Kinda of wondering if the carb needs to be rebuilt or if there's something elese wrong. If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks for your time.

Also I forgot to mention. The only way to start it is with the choke on, once its warmed up I turn the choke off and the thing dies, also when you rev up it just back fires, sounds like it trying to rev.

Sounds like it's fuel starved. Has it ever been jetted before? Some carbs get corroded inside around the float pin needle, causing the float to not operate quick enough. Pull the carb bowl off and tap that float to make sure it moves freely.

I did take both bowels off and cleaned and made sure float was moving, I don't think its been jetted before I think a rebuild might fixs it? Right?

It's possible if one of the jets is clogged or something like that.

the only thing that will cause a backfire is a to lean issue. to much fuel will flood it. the choke adds fuel to the system. i would completely clean and rebuild the carb. also the fuel pump could be causing a slight issue if it is dirty or dry.

I'm going to rebuild the carb to see what happens. On the brakes there is a wire that is broken. Looks like it clips in there I put it back in it doesn't really do anything. I'll let you know what happens after i rebuild the carb Thanks for you help

I already know that everything is is working or it wouldn't start up on the choke. I'm pretty sure it is the carb being gummed up and not adjust right, its been sitting for a at least 8 months. plus the carb is not in a easy place to work on, its kinda of in there. Also I was thinking of rebuilding it myself but ive really never done it. What screws you talking about? the air/fuel mixture? I was just thinking if i got it rebuilt then i know everything is working in the carb.

I got my carb back and I put it back, the thing runs good nice sound. I do have a brake safety switch on order, I learned that mine was missing. which is werid cause I was riding it right after i got the carb then 10 mins later it wouldn't work right. I just want to say thanks for your guys help. you pointed me in the right direction. Thanks again you guys

P.S. redneckyankee your fuel problem could it be the gas cap. Cause like mine its gravity feed in and if it can't breath its going to restricted the flow of gas getting to the carb when the gas gets lower correct?

      I have two 2003 Suzuki Ozark 250s, both 2-wheel drive.  Last time we rode them about a year ago, the red one was not running well, didn't want to idle, backfired a lot.  The green one ran fine. 
      Fast forward...I ordered a carb kit for both of them, thinking the red one has some trash in a jet.  Both of these ATVs have had little use and I've always ran the gas out after use (put an inline cutoff valve in gas line).  I pull started the red one to verify it was still running bad.  It will start and idle, but as soon as you give it any throttle, it dies instantly.  Give it a little choke, dies instantly.  Took the carb apart and it was spotless.  Went ahead and cleaned all the holes with carb cleaner and blew everything out with compressed air.  All new jets, main jet holder, and needles.  Put it back on and nothing changed.  Starts, idles (not for a long time), but dies as soon as you give it gas.  Same happens when you put the choke on.  It does the same thing when I try to run it turned to prime on the petcock as it does in the on position.
      Not an air filter issue.  It is clean and it does the same exact thing with no filter on it.
      Thought maybe there was a float issue or maybe a damaged diaphragm, so I took the carb off the green Ozark and put it on red.  Started up and initially ran normal and revved for about 10 seconds and then started doing the same exact thing.  Starts, idles (not for a long time), but dies as soon as you give it gas.  Same happens when you put the choke on. 
      So...not the carb
      Thought maybe vacuum petcock was bad, but there's no gas in the vacuum line going from petcock to carb and gas flows freely when on prime.  I even plugged the vacuum line at both the petcock and carb end and tried to run it with valve set to prime.  Gas flows freely, but does exactly the same thing.  I unscrewed the screw at the bottom of the bowl and gas flows thru carb and out bowl drain line when petcock is set to prime.
      So, I'm assuming petcock is good?
      Checked spark plug and it wasn't fouled.  Reset gap, didn't help.  Will swap plugs between Ozarks tomorrow but I don't think that is it.
      Anyway, that he history and now you're all caught up.  Scratching my head.  Valves? These were bought at same time and have had little use.  Suggestions?
      Thanks!

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I have taken of my Air filter and sprayed in my air inlet some carberator cleaner while starting it. That causes some problems. It struggles to start now. Please look at my attachedment video. 
      What can I do now.?

      Hey Frank I posted some pictures of my stator from my Raptor660r and I need some help,here are some pics of the numbers I got from the stator the 494 is ok,that's from the white/red & white/green wires but from the white to white I was getting no reading and from the blue and red wires also no reading, so it's most likely done right?
