2002 Yamaha Warrior 350 brake rotor

Recommended Posts

I replaced the pads on the back of my Warrior late of last year or early this year. Can't remember when exactly. Apparently I bought some crappy pads cause I wore them out already and messed up the rotor some. I have a new rotor and pads to put on but I have a problem.

I can't get the Allen Wrench bolts to break loose. I am hoping someone can tell me there is a trick to getting them loose. I could see my allen wrench twisting trying to get them loose. Actually messed up the bolts some.

Don't have any heat. Tried the tightening trick but it didn't work. I guess I'll have to get it over to my friends garage. I know he has a torch.

Agree with Oxy. Get a small plumbers torch that uses MAPP gas they are more expensive but easily available at any hardware store. MAPP burns alot hotter than propane

Well got the rotor off. Two of the bolts came out pretty east. The other two that I messed with before was rough to get out. I was able to get one by beating a bigger allen into it. The other was some grinding on the bolt and grabbing it with vise grips. Bought some new bolt to at the hardware store.

Now I have a problem with the front left brake caliper. The slider bolt wouldn't move. Had to use a c clamp to push it back so I could get the caliper back on with the new pads. Was hoping after I pushed it back that it might free up and go back out. But not moving at all.

Thinking I'll have to pull the caliper off the quad and heat the slider bolt up and hope to get it loose. Pull it apart and give it a proper cleaning. We tried spraying Seaform Deep Creep in there but didn't move still.

At this point I would remove as many parts as possible and clean,grind,and lubricate them. If they are this hard to get off i would also do up the wheel bearings etc. This way you have a piece of mind on the trails.

I know you want to get back to riding asap but there seems to be too many corrosion gremlins lurking on that bike

Oh yea we know the bearings. The rear end bearings are wobbly. Been working on the gremlins in the bike. I have a noise in the motor that's been there since I got it. Friend said it's either piston slap or the cam/lifters need adjusted bad..

Was thinking I should find another quad but my friend thinks this one will be going for a while. Just need to work on it some.

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!

      Hello All,
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4x4 trying to get fixed up so my grandson can go out in the woods with me.
      We have owned it over 10 years.  It got harder to start, until it finally would not.  Replaced the carb.  Right afterwards, it started and ran nicely, but after turning it off, would not restart.  Tonight I used starting fluid and ran, then died.  Adjusted the idle up a little, used more starting fluid and ran great.  It idled about 15 minutes.  Turned it off, and restarted.  Ran it around the yard about 5 minutes.  Turned it off, and would not restart.
      Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you.

      I’m just wondering what year bike i got? it seems the vin has been rubbed off i got it from a auction here in Australia engine starts but seems has a dirty carb wont idle well
      and also has a problem I put it in gear and makes a grinding noise but does not move it the neutral light goes out but then when I change gear it grinds more in the higher gears as well I’m guessing the differential is stuffed so wanting to buy new part for it will start the pull down next week

      this is the first bike I have worked on used to dealing with cars
