2005 Yamaha Raptor - Wont Start Consistantly

Recommended Posts

My 2005 raptor 350 will not start consistantly, and even harder to start when its warm. When it does start it purrs like a kitten. When it does start it starts right away, very seldomly do you have to crank it over for a few seconds to get it to start. Ive confirmed spark,new spark plug, had my carb gone through and float adjusted and had the valves adjusted with still no consistancy. Only other guess is CDI,Starter relay..... Any help would be greatly appriciated.

you might have a bad batch of gas, i just had issues with my step sons raptor 350. it would run then wouldn t start. cleaned the tank and carb out . then it would run a couple days then not start. finally got fed up and took it to a shop and it did the same thing for him . finally he figured out that the gas was bad. if the gas sits too long the gas and ethalol separates and sometimes you might end up with all ethanol. try putting new gas in it and make sure you put the ethanol treatment in it. its about $20 a bottle but it worth it. i havn t had a problem with it since.

Tried everything you all suggested and no leads : ( Even when warm I have spark, but it lead me to wonder. There is spark but how do I know if its enough of a spark. How can I confirm there is enough spark to create ignition?

I know they have spark gap testers for regular autos but i dont see why it cant work on atvs. They usually have them at autoparts stores. It has a screw on one side and you adjust the gap to a preset level according to the instructions. If it wont fire then the spark is weak.

Think thats it. I have 90psi comming out of the cylinder when its cold and 85 when its warmed up. So guess next step is a top end. Hope I can just do rings.

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a 2000 Honda trx90 I got from a buddy for free he said it needed a carb so I put his old carb back on it to try to get something out of it and it does not have any Spark. I already replaced the ignition coil I don't know much about four wheelers but I am a technician so I do know my way around a motor any electrical help would be wonderful or specs I don't have the best digital multimeter either.

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
