New guy, old 200x restoration

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

bought a non running 200x I assume to be 83-85. Told by PO that it stopped running suddenly, now kick start is jammed. I assume timing chain called it a day. Bought for my daughter to do a mild resto. I run Rokon's and old Wr430 Huskys myself.

Any thoughts, ideas and randon knowledge is always appreciated.

Thanks guys!

Bud

Thank you.

She's bound up tight. I'm pulling the motor now, toss the rest in the shed for sandblasting later. Looks like no cracks, leaks or other bad indicators. Cam bushings seem to be an issue, so will look at them first. Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

Seems the rocker adjustment screw backed off and fell out. Got lodged near the bushing area of the cam and did some damage. The chain was snapped also. Pop the side cover next to see whats lying around in there.

      We just picked up this trike and there isn't any activity out of the shifter. Any idea as to why? I'm hoping there's a gear or spring that's bad and not the whole transmission. Clutch is fine, is there a spring or something that engages the shifter?
      Thanks

      I just picked up a 2003 Yamaha Big Bear 400 project and figured I would join your site and learn a thing or two.
      It wants to start but has been sitting for 2 years in a shed. I grabbed it from my neighbor and set about ordering parts for it off Amazon, to include: Petcock, battery and a starter relay since it does not start with the push button.
      I am a car guy, but this is my first ATV and since I am on 5 acres, it will come in handy, especially with the 4x4 on command option.
      Thanks for having me and I look forward to contributing to the site as well.
