2007 Yamaha Raptor 700 - Clutch/Transmission

Recommended Posts

:aargh:Went to go for a ride today. Started up the road and noticed i didnt have much power. In first gear its fine but all the other ones it dont have any power. when i let the clutch out it is almost to the end that it finally catches. im hoping that it is a clutch and not the transmission. Could use whatever input i can get.:mad:

Is the clutch almost out all the way in 1st before it engages as with the other gears. Like Ox said it may just need an adjustment. Have you felt it not engaging over time or was it all at once?

well i thought it just needed adjusted and now it wont even engage so it must be the clutch. the last poker run must have really don it in. it was really wet and muddy. towards the end it started acting up went i let the clutch out it would shut the engine off. it must have finally went all the way. so what kind of clutch kit do you recommend. i found a wiseco kit for $89 and an EBC for $99. barrnett and hinson are almost $200 . just wondering if they were worth it or if the cheaper kits were ok.

I would do a search for reviews on each brand barrnett & hinson are used by most pro riders for racing and are worth the money if your racing. Most products that are used in racing is built to with stand more punishment & give better performance. For wiseco & ebc I would try and find reviews on the net and see what customers have to say. If a 89 or 99 dollar kit will work for what you need I don't see spending 200.00 dollars. If a product improves the performance it's going to cost more but that dosn't mean it will last longer than a product that cost less just do some research. And this is a great site for info out of all the members I'm sure someone has used the brands you listed.

I know alot of the factory kits last alot longer than aftermarket but dont have the bite when putting down gobs of extra power. If your not racing mx or gncc go with a factory clutch kit

agree, hard to replace factory specs with others that will give you this; but not that ... go OEM

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      So i took a road trip today to look at a Suzuki Eiger! 2006 in perfect condition other then the fact it starts for 30 seconds and shuts down.  
      Its been sitting for about a year in a shed. 
      It has a plow and a winch included!!!
      Got it for a really good price and all looks good so far.  
       
      Stay tuned.

      Where do you buy your ATV gear? I am planning to buy a swing arm guard, heavy duty bumpers, chassis armor, nerf bars and grab bars for my 2003 Suzuki EIGER 400. Any recommendations?

      Passing thought here and thought I'd pitch it to the group for debate.  I'm working through a Kodiak which is basically a Big Bear in a heavier bike and the same as about anything Japanese made for 30 years as far as clutch function and design goes.  This Kodiak is odd though in that the centrifugal clutch slipped a bit with good clutch material remaining and the main clutch pack seems to slip a bit as well at high RPM but also still has good clutch material left.  Much like the Kawa race bikes from what I've read.  Do you think it's an option to add a thin washer to the pressure bolts to put a bit more pressure on the main clutch and force it to use a bit more of the clutch material before having to replace?  There's seriously like 50% of fiber left on the main clutch pack and it seems silly to replace it all before it's truly worn down.
