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.

i'm not sure about taking the engine out, but if the manual says; it might be a helluva lot easier to work on. ck1999_400ex would be a good guy to pm about this. i know he's done alot of yamaha work ...

Thanks oxidized_black for the reply. I have removed all the head and cylinder with it in but now im at the point that it will have to be removed to split it in half. can anyone verify this? thanks

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 ...

      While riding my Quadzilla XLC 500 I was cruising along about 60 mph then opened it up, but once I hit 70-75 mph it died on me so I rolled to a stop and it wouldn't start for about 20-30 seconds. I then noticed the Temp light occasionally flashes on but its so quick you wouldn't notice in the day so not sure how long its been happening. The engine has started pinging when I accelerate which can be caused by many things so I drained the fuel and replaced with hi octane, fitted a new spark plug, adjusted the little washer on the high jet in the carb twice to make it run more lean which made no difference.  I tested the thermostat which opens at the correct temperature, I removed the radiator cap and started the engine and no bubbles were showing and the oil is on maximum and very clean as I have not long serviced it.
      The last time I took it out I went 14 miles and the coolant in the bottle has dropped about 1/2".
      I am now leaning towards a head gasket and have purchased a full gasket kit but was wondering if there's anything else it could be before taking the engine apart.

      Looking for a cylinder head for a 2002 Kawasaki Lakota Sport 300

      Anyone out there spice up their 2002 Kawasaki Lakota Sport 300 with cam, shaved head, deck the jug, valves?
      As you probably have already seen, I have a top end to get built back up and might as well add a little kick to it. Here's a pic of a golf cart I built up recently and modified the engine a little while I had it apart.
      Thanks in advance for everyone's help!!

      I bought a '02 Lakota Sport and had a few pieces missing, looks like someone ripped it apart, lost interest and all the parts removed got trashed. Anyhow, not really sure where to start, but there does seem to be more Bayou parts available.
      Does anyone have a breakdown of parts (or years) of the bayou that are the same as the Lakota?
       
      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.

      hey I'm dave westfall I'm new I just became an official member of this site a few minutes ago. Ive been crazy about quads and bikes since I was about 3 and ive always done my home work on them figuratively speaking. I would say for comparison to the common man that I am pretty knowledgeable about them. its been my passion about most of my life. I love talking about quads and bikes so if anyone out there would like to talk with me about mechanical subjects or about person experiences while riding or just shoot the breeze please feel free to chat with me. I'm looking forward to it.
