1992 Yamaha Timberwolf - Oil Out Breather?

Recommended Posts

Since I have had this Yamaha Timberwolf it has had the problem of blowing oil out the breather, Also if I am running it down a road and look back I can smell oil, So I assume its burning it as well, Plug is a light brown in color. Goes through about a quart in about 7 hours of run time, Some of which ends up in the breather box, How can I remedy this? It has good compression (Rated is 128PSI) 125PSI. And starts without problem with the electric start. I am out of ideas and the cost of oil is killing me.

Only one vent line, And yes its clear as it has pressure out it when engine is running. Its strange that this engine has no filter or valve between the vent and airbox

just read your other post and went looking online ...

it's probably this : worn compression rings, & oil control rings, worn bore, worn ring grooves - do a leakdown test and that will tell you for almost certain ...

Well, For the time being I guess I am going to have to run it as is, As its my main transportation and I got no money to purchase a leakdown tester

Ok, New problem, It seems to be running wayyy to hot, Its melting the o-rings on the valve covers and starting to melt the plastic on the oil dipstick >_> Its also now burning oil big time when its hot, I am guessing its due to the oil thinning? Or it blew the oilring out from overheating

      2001 Honda foreman 450s manual shift. i can shift through the gears when the ATV is off, but when I turn it on, I can shift into first, but I cannot shift to second or even back to neutral. Same with reverse. I can get it into reverse but cannot shift out. If i turn it off it will shift back fine, any idea? I just bought this and fear I got screwed over.

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.

      My Children’s 50CC Yamaha ATV was stolen from just outside the garage. I did a little custom work to the front of it and added two LED headlights to it as well as a switch to the plastic handle bar cover. Our home sits well off the road and it was not something that was just in plane site so my fear is that this was planned over time and the thieves knew we had it and were just waiting their chance. We also had a 20 inch bike that was stolen as well, we were able to recover it however about a mile down the road as it was left abandoned. We didn’t know it, but we think the bike may have been taken a few days earlier. Now sure if both items were taken by the same person or just a coincidence Thanks for any help you might be.

      Ok...I'm gettin' me juevos ready to do an oir filter clean....
      Went to my local harley/quad dealer and he had me purchase the No-Toil kit (Cleaner, Air Filter Oil, Rim Grease)
      What I've read is that the No-Toil cleaner will NOT clean
      other oils off air filters....just the No-Toil oil....
      So, I've also read that others have cleaned their air filters
      in the kitchen sink, used gasoline, or used flash solvent....
      Looking for advice as I've mentioned I'm very mechanically
      DECLINED!
      I'm going to wash the air box seal in the sink and give it a good dry....
      One more thing......No-Toil or Bel-Ray for filter oil?
      Thanks!

      Have a 2011 Grizz 700 and for the diff oil the manual calls for SAE 80 API GL-4 hypoid gear oil. I'll be using Mobil 1 synthetic but as it comes in two different weights I'm not sure which one to get....either the 75W-90 or the 75W-140.
      The 75W-90 is listed as GL-5 and is recommended for use in 'high-performance vehicles like SUVs, vans and light duty trucks.' The 75W-140 weight is also GL-5 and is recommended for 'high-performance vehicles including sport utility vehicles, vans and light-duty trucks.'

      I'm going into my '11 Grizz 700 to adjust valve clearance for the first time and when I button everything back up I'll be replacing all the gaskets / o-rings. The 5 I'll be replacing include (from the top down) both valve cover gaskets, cylinder head cover gasket, and the 2 gaskets in the crankcase cover.
      Do I need to coat these gaskets with motor oil before putting them on like when replacing your oil filter?

      Hi All,
      Has anyone found engine oil in their air filter box. The must be little or no baffle between crankcase ventilation and that hose that attaches to the air filter box.
      I went to pick up my ATV today 60 miles away that they could not fix the jerky low speeds on and before I loaded it decided to check on this. Sure enough there was a good coating of oil with some pooling in the bottom of the air filter box. The air filter has oil on it too but is it a dry element or oiled element type. My guess from the color of it dry.
      I heard on a comment on my YT videos that there is a kit for this issue? Is this a CFMOTO fix?
      Thanks
      Kevin
