2005 Yamaha Big Bear 400 4*4 issues

Recommended Posts

I've got the rear end popping when its under a load, I know that can't be good, but its also blowing oil out of blow by hose? Why I don't know, it hasn't been over filled with oil, also has gas in breather box. Does anyone have any ideas? Atv only has 400 hours on it.

Check your air filter for the blow-by. as far as the popping noise in the rear, it could be the ring and pinion or a something else like a mount or control arm, bushing, etc. It's hard to diagnose wiithout being there...did you get a second opinion from anyone?

The hose that blowing oil is coming off the top of motor, it does not run to breather box, I don't even see anywhere for it to conect to breather box, local repair shop, said gears in rear end were going out and would need whole new rear end. They said its all one piece in rear end have to replace everything, i think that is crap, lol.

i would check all the vent lines from the motor. if the motor can't breathe, it will send oil thru the weakest link or breatheable tube. how's the compression and is the carb dirty or sticky float?

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
