2000 Yamaha Warrior YMF350X - Backfire?

Recommended Posts

Im working on a Friends 2000 YMF350X Warrior. She told me that the last time she rode it she had to jump start it. After that it wouldnt start. Dead battery obviously. Now the last time she rode it, She jumped it and rode it less than a mile up the road to a friends and it ran perfect. Smooth Idle the whole nine yards. When she got to her friends the battery took a complete crap so it sat overnight. The next day however, When the battery was replaced all it did was crank and crank and crank then Backfire, LOUD, Then crank some more. I checked out the whole ignition system. Replaced the plug and everythings fine there. All this happened about a month ago and somewhere either before this event took place or after... Idk. Someone had filled the oil little over 2 and a half times the amount. This motor took about 1 and 1/3 qt to read right on the dipstick and i drained almost 3 qts out. Any Suggestions from here? (Thought bad Gas possibly but new gas acts the same)

I would clean the Carb. Spray some Carb clean in or soak it. My bike starts easier by pulling than cranking over ...

      hey I'm dave westfall I'm new I just became an official member of this site a few minutes ago. Ive been crazy about quads and bikes since I was about 3 and ive always done my home work on them figuratively speaking. I would say for comparison to the common man that I am pretty knowledgeable about them. its been my passion about most of my life. I love talking about quads and bikes so if anyone out there would like to talk with me about mechanical subjects or about person experiences while riding or just shoot the breeze please feel free to chat with me. I'm looking forward to it.

      I recently bought a 2000 warrior that needed motor work. I got it all put back together and can't figure out why I have no electric coming on, it has a new battery with 12.5v the fuse is good and I believe I have all the ground wires connected. Any help or suggestions?
