1998 Yamaha Bear Tracker - Upgrades

Recommended Posts

Owned this atv since new. I was 13 or so when we got this bike so it has had a rough life with no major work done. It smokes like crazy (blue) and has a bit of a rattle to it at idle. I am thinking this winter is the time to tear it apart and see whats wrong. Thinking minimum, I'll need a jug and piston set. Wondering what most people run into with these. I always thought it was a 98 but must be a 99 from the pictures I see of other ones and parts available. Will check vin soon.

My questions are -

- best place for engine parts

- upgrade options

- interchangeability

also the tires are worn and the rims are all slightly bent on the edges, so wondering what other atvs that wheels/tires will fit mine

If this has been covered please send a link.

i think it's a 1999. i would price yamaha parts from your dealer, then go to bikebandit.com and ebay for parts. upgrade to maybe a slip on exhaust and rejet the carb. the tires you can choose to fit your riding areas. itp tires have a good selection and are reasonably priced. your rims are 4/110 which are a very common size for the majority of the big name quads. just check your width, eg. 6", 8", 10"...

      Hello all, 
      i just rebuilt the top end of a 99 Bear Tracker 250 and it can’t get it to hit off of gasoline or starter fluid. Occasionally it will backfire. Right now I’m just trying to get it to fire off without the carburetor like I’ve done a thousand times before with other engines. Usually there is no response, but occasionally I get a backfire through the intake. ISeems like it’s out of time, but I don’t see how that could be possible. 
      Here’s what I know:
      1. compression 120psi
      2. all timing marks are lined up after numerous revolutions. 
      3. Strong spark. 
      4. Valves adjusted correctly. 
      Thanks in advance.
