2001 Yamaha Grizzly 600 - Engine Knock


Recommended Posts

I have a grizzly that has a lower engine knock. Any pointers you guys can give me on tearing it apart to fix the problem? im guessing a connecting rod is knocking. Im going to take the head and cylinder off tomorrow to inspect the piston to conecting rod and see if thats my problem. im betting its the lower bearing or something. the manual says you have to remove the engine to replace the lower...is that right? any tips?? thanks for any and all help.

yes u will have to remove the motor from the frame to split the case to get the crank and rod out ... but another thing that will sound like a lower end motor knock is a worn clutch .. i have seen that on many quads with a belt drive .. they sound like the lower end is knocking when its actually not .. it was a clutch with worn parts ..causing the noise ... that has not always been it ... some times it is actually the rod or bad crank ...

      Hey y'all. I have a Yamaha ymf 250 BearTracker. I got this thing for free from people whose son tore it to hell. So it wasn't in great shape to begin with. i.e. no indicator lights (neutral light for instance), no ignition switch or key( wires were twisted together to make it run), get the picture yet? 
      So when it ran it ran rough and I got it running for a year or two, just something fun for the kids to ride on with me on gravels.
      Now just randomly, the start button stopped working so I had to jump the solenoid, then put a temp start switch in. Kill switch would still work. 
      However, the thing has no spark what-so-ever. I've check continuity through the start button and it shows the contact is working, ohmed out the stator, everything is in spec, the reg/rec tested fine as well. I've replaced the solenoid on the off chance it could've been bad and the cdi unit as well, along the the little solenoid relay unit. I'm still getting no spark. The spark plugs is new as well and the coils to the plug have been tested and are good. I've tested and trouble shooted everything I can on this quad and no luck. I watched countless YouTube "no spark" situation videos and it's not helped. Does anyone have any tips or tricks I could try? Would really appreciate some input on this. Thanks!

      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.

      Hi Everyone
      This is my first post and I was wondering if there is anyone who can help me solve a problem I have with my Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 Fitted with a Mikuni Carburetor . The year of the quad is around 1998, the reason I am not sure of the date is, there wasn't any paperwork and no details on the frame either.
      The quad had a bad leak from the carb overflow which indicated that the float needle valve was blocked or passing so I replaced this and put everything back together. The quad ran really well until I took it onto some rough ground to have a ride around, a few hours later the engine started to run really rough as if the engine was flooding. I have removed the carb again and cleaned the needle valve out and the whole of the carb just in case there where any dirt behind it. Engine now runs fine again but fuel has started to run out the carb overflow again.
      I have tried everything to try and stop the fuel leaking out the overflow but its still happening. My last thoughts where to adjust the float level and its still happening.
      Has anyone got any thoughts on the problem or could suggest whats causing the fuel leaking out the overflow.
      Thanks for reading
      Kevin

      I just recently purchased a Polaris xpress 300 and have had a number of problems.. I purchased it in none running condition and found that it needed a top end done.. after completing the top end and not being able to find the oil drain plug for the engine, any kind of dip stick to check the oil, or any where that I could fill the engine with oil I was already frustated enough.. and then when i finally did get it started and tried to put it in gear and it would just grind(no matter what gear) My frustation has become monumental.. any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.. i've already tried to idle the engine down to it nearly stauling out and then tried putting it in gear and it would just grind, or if i tried to force it it would just staul out completely.. for fear of tearing up gears I would like some input procede any further..
      Thomas,

      I have a Polaris Magnum that is having issues. After returning to the farm after being away from knee surgery, I found my Magnum unwilling to start. I replaced the spark plug, no luck starting. Moved on to the ignition coil thinking that maybe that was an issue since it looked in rough shape. The 4 wheeler was out of gas so my thought was clogged fuel pump and/or carb gunked up. Both are clean so that isn't the problem. Now I am getting absolutely no spark when I try to start it. What else could be possible issues? CDI module, stator or solenoid issue? I really need this thing running, I use it to carry feed out to my birds so I don't have to carry feed. 
      Anyone have any ideas?

      So where do all of you people ride at in this great state of michigan. I ride several different places like leotta,south branch,denton creek,rose city,and plan on going to some places that i haven't rode yet....so sound off and tell me where you ride: yes:

      I was thinking its bad gas but it wont run for longer period even using starting fluid, so I'm thinking fuel starved. Injector? I heard the fuel filter is built into the fuel pump, which sounds like a terrible idea. I have read a few reviews saying its a common symptom of a plugged injector. I have my air intake box off and beneath it is the injector I think. But what do I need to remove to get to it? I dont want to just start pulling stuff off the top of the motor. 
      Couldnt locate a you tube vid that actually shows an injector removal.
      Any help out there.
