1987-89 big bear 350 4x4 shifting

Recommended Posts

Hi, brand new to the forum and first time ATV owner at 46. I picked up what is believed to be an 87 to 89 big bear 350 4x4. The owner was not sure. My big question is it appears the shifting is neutral at the bottom and five up unlike all my dirt bikes. Is this right? There is no Manuel and I have not had enough time or area to get it up to speed and run it through the paces. Any help, owners manuals, and an order of things to inspect and service first?

Thank you,

Dan

Thank you for your response. It must not be going into first then. The gears above neutral seem to be fine. Any suggestions or adjustments that can be made?

Thanks guys for your response. I am going to get it out today run through the gears and I will let you know. It is funny that I cannot find any litatuer on the shifting. I did find through the vin search that it is an 1988.

Steelcity, is yours difficulty to get into neutral, I have to work at it to push it down numerous time before it goes into neutral. Would changing any fluids or the types of fluids help?

If it shifts that difficult it may be a bent shift fork, just rebuilt the tranny in a 450yfz having the same issue. Thats what we found to be the issue, shifted wonderfully after the new shift forks were put in

Ghost420guy,

I probably don’t have the skill to do that what should that cost at a bike shop?

I was able to get it out and shift through all 5 gears. Neutral is at the bottom. Should I be I neutral befor putting it into reverse?

Thanks again to all of you for sharing your knowledge.

shifting : sometimes I have to rock it a little when shifting down to neutral especially when at a stop , like any motor driven vehicle if it is new to you then it would be wise to change all fluids if you don't know the history .

      I’m looking for any member that may be familiar with the neutral safety switch on this bike.   
      I picked up a bayou 220 that I found sitting in a shed. Nice looking bike the guy said it would not start one day and put it away and never touched it again.  
      So it turns out the neutral safety switch is bad.  I jumped it out and the bike fired up and runs good.  
      I’m more then capable of the work in changing it but this thing is buried pretty good. I’m curious if anyone has done the switch replacement before? 
      I attached some pics to see.
      picture 1 is the side view you can see the green and red wires going into the cover. 
      Pic 2 shows looking down on the drive shaft coming out of that cover.  That is not a simple cover you just pull off. 
      Im wondering how deep and how much shit has to come off like the drive shaft etc for this switch  to be replaced. 
      So if any of the QC members have done this switch I’m looking for any input with regard to changing it.  
      Thanks.

      I need to replace the starter solenoid on a 2000 Bear tracker.  The OEM is about $70 and aftermarket ranges between $10-$20.  Should I buy the OEM or is there an aftermarket brand that is good?
