Problems with my 2002 Yamaha Raptor...

Recommended Posts

I recently trade my dirtbike for a 2002 raptor, with some problems. First of all it idles really fast and when you hit the gas it bogs way down. Thought it might have been something in the carburetor so took it off and cleaned it all up, put it back on and it was the same or maybe worse. Then it doesn't run off choke, and even with the choke on it runs very crappy. Then when I got it the electric start button was stuck, so I ordered a new switch for it. That was 5 days ago and now it does not work. :(.. It felt hot so maybe it got burned up somehow? Also the guy I got it from put some kind of aftermarket pipe on it. Would that mess with the gas/air ratio? The pipe is so cheap it is basically just a tube on the end of the exhaust it does nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kyle.

it will affect your mixture,and can make it run lean,it needs to be jetted bigger,and the the choke gives it a richer mixture,so i would start by rejetting it

But then again I think I am probably going to go back to the stock pipe would I just want to get the stock pipe and not Jet it or both?

That exhaust is probably your issue. Most manufacturers of aftermarket exhaust systems for ATVs will give you jetting specs that they recommend, from tests that they have performed.

If you are going back to the stock pipe, unless the jets were changed, you will not need to jet it.

      Hi everyone! I have a 1986 yamaha moto4 200 that's been sitting for a while! Cleaned the carb, replaced engine oil, put fresh gas in it. Got it running and went for a ride! It was running great just a little backfire once in a while! I barely made it home on the way back and now the bike won't run at all since then! It will start if I give a little bit of throttle but dies instantly as soon as I let go off the throttle! And even if I try to rev it up it'll sound like its not getting enough gas.. it revs up a couple hundred rpm's and backfires through the carb.. it almost sounds as if I was trying to take off from zero in 5th gear! Nothing is seized though! I dissasembled the head and the piston and cylinder are fine! Rebuilt the carb, replaced the ignition source coil.. I don't know what to do anymore.. compression test shows 90 psi Specs are 128 psi but i'm not sure if I trust my compression tester.. any ideas? Thanks!!

      If we had a dollar for every time the question “Which is really faster, the 700 or the 450?” shows up in our inbox, mailbox, or voicemail, we’d be putting this magazine together from a bungalow on a barely inhabited tropical isle named Quadhama.

      I have a 01 raptor and recently had to bore it out to a 686 because it sucked in a bunch of sand. Now I have no torque or power in the first third of the throttle. I am hoping that someone else knows what is going on with it

      To start. The kit did not come with a needle jet. I bought it off ebay and it was unopened
      When I got it. Any help would be appreciated ALOT.
