1987 Yamaha Warrior - Starting Issue

Hello everyone, this is my first time posting to any forum, so I appreciate the help.

I just got a warrior 350, and the starter is shot, but I wanted to ride so I tried pop starting it. Yesterday it pop started, and now today it catches when I pop it into second gear and give it full throttle. But as soon as I pull in the clutch or let off the gas it dies. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jared

Yeah mine would not start/run with the air filter one either...turns out the foam filter was so laden with dirt and oil no air could get through.

I'm no expert on carbs but read that if will only run on choke, then either carb is dirty. Perhaps bad gas or carb out of adjustment.

Did you do a full carb kit rebuild or clean and reassemble?

I took the carburetor apart and sprayed it down with an entire can of carb clean, I scrubbed it, used wire brushes in the jets, it's real clean. I have heard soaking it in kerosene or diesel fuel works very good. Has anybody heard that?

Also my rear brake caliper is now messed up. Figures. It grinds on the rear disk and sometimes just rubs it. Sorry for all of the questions, just new to warriors and this one seems to have every problem in the book.

Im sure kero or diesel would be fine just remove the rubber gaskets first. Not sure if it matters but better be safe.

As for the rubbing rear disks check to make sure the caliper slides arent gunked up. Also put the rear tires off the ground and shake the axle left and right. Any play means axle bearings are shot. Lastly if you can take off the brake rotor and lay it on a flat surface. Any place its not touching means a warped rotor

Cool, thank you all so much. I'm sure as soon as I get the money to fix these problems, something else will go wrong!! Lol.

Just as an opinion question, do you think that a warrior is a good quad to keep? Or am I better off selling it and buying another quad? I do mostly trail riding, but every now and then I go for a ride through the streets, just to see people's expressions when I pass them lol

a warrior is a great quad for trail riding. If you can get it running good keep it. I had one for 5 years and it went anywhere i wanted to. The rear caliper on the one i had never worked either. I ran mine with just the front brakes. The slides are probably froze up. I have a 350 raptor for my step son and his did the same thing. Replaced the slide on it for $60. And if your warrior runs good without the air filter try cleaning it or just get a new one. They are only around $30 to $40.

i had similar trouble with the carb on my wolverine 350. I cleaned the carb completely, or so i thought. What finally got it running was i had forgotten to use a small wire to clean the port between where the fuel line goes into the carb and into the bowl. Had to remove the float and the valve seat to get to the opening. after that it ran perfectly
