1995 Yamaha Big Bear 350 - Odometer Drive Cog Missing

Recommended Posts

This is my first post and I have some pics which I have attached.

I have just bought a doer upper, Big Bear 1995 350 fwd. My first ever quad !!

I took off the odometer cable and housing from the crankcase and there was no drive gear on the end of the cable. No sign of it in the part of the crankcase I could see.

I am concerned the drive gear could have fallen down into the crankcase.

Can I just take off the crankcase cover while the engine is in place to check if the cog has fallen into anything it could damage when I next start it up.

      Anyone know of a good repair besides replacement for the ever cracking Big Bear 350 intakes. Replaced with a Zoom Zoom about two operational hours ago and the new one is cracked.

      Ok new to group and new to quads. I picked up a 88 Big Bear for next to nothing but it has issues. The entire high low revers shifter has been removed. All I have is a bar attached to the linkage. I can shift into all three but I would like to replace or get suggestions. I have looked around but there is limited info or pictures on what I would need to buy or where it even mounts. Any pics of what where and how it works would be great. Or direct me to correct thread.
      Thanks
