1999 grizzly 600 winter starting problem

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 1999 grizzly 600 and in the summer time it runs great cranks on the first try. But in the winter it will not crank with the starter but if you can pull the crank rope hard enough it will crank. Can anyone tell me why this happens? Thanks

Thanks for the reply.

The starter is good I have had it checked. One guy told me it might be the cdi box but the Yamaha place told me the only way to check the cdi box is to let them check everything else on the bike and if nothing is bad then its the cdi. That sounded a little weird to me.

The first thing I would check is that battery. Same issue on my grizzly 660, I had to replace the battery.

Thanks for the replies. Now all I have to do is wait for winter to see if the battery fixes it.

      Hi Everyone - Need some help.
      Got a nice little 220...clean machine. wiring is a mess. I have a diagram however, the one I have has 4 wires coming from the ignition switch not 2 like mine. So, I cant trace wires properly.
      There is a white one that runs to the Solenoid, and a brown wire...from the Ignition...I dont know where its supposed to go. Also, on the Solenoid, there are 3 wires..W to ignition, B to start relay and B/Y runs up to the front of the machine...and is not plugged into anything...and there isnt a "Mate" missing it. How do they plug into the 4 open shovels by the 20A fuse?
      I'm pretty sure my Lights and start switch/Lights are correct.
      Problem I cant get anything...new battery...cant get the start button to work, cant get any power to the lights or switches...so I know something is not grounded or..
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Tom

      My father-in-law gave my boy a 1999 350 Big Bear. It's been sitting in a barn for a bunch of years. It runs great! My boy has been riding a couple weeks now and it has developed a squeal coming from the front end when you get off the gas at speed. No noise during acceleration. At first I thought brakes. I took it for a ride and I don't think it is the brakes. I feel it is the front prop shaft U-joints, front differential or one/both axles. I pulled the fill plug on the differential and I can't find anywhere how much gear oil should be in there. My gut says up to the fill opening. It doesn't have a manual. It's wet in there, just don't see any gear oil.

      #1 Should I fill the differential with gear oil up to the fill opening?

      #2 How do I check or know if the u-joints are bad? That looks like a "Big Bear" of a job if they don't need to be replaced.

      #3 What else could it be? I don't think it is the front bearings. I jacked the front wheels off ground and no play in the right wheel. Very little play in the left wheel, looks like the lower control bushing is where that play is coming from. The rubber CV boots look original but all still intact. Wheels spin easily without any noise.

      Thanks for any help!
