98 timberwolf cant swim

Recommended Posts

ok here goes, my son took his 98 timberwolf 250 2x4 mudding and wound up in stuck in a hole with only handlebars and top of seat visible. so after pulling it out with a truck I got it home to find that it was hydro locked. started with the rear end, disassembled cleaned reassembled and new fluid. roles great. now for the problem. drained the oil/water from crankcase, pulled the spark plug and gave the rope a pull and shot water out of the cylinder. put new oil in along with motor flush and a new plug. the plan was to flush the motor 3 or 4 times to get remaining water out and figured it would be good to go. however, no start electric or pull rope. have popped all connectors apart and dried them, swapped out coil pack, disassembled carb, cleaned and replaced, it is getting spark and fuel. where should I go from here. cant seem to figure out why it wont start. I did almost start 1 or 2 time but just wouldn't stay running. please help im at my wits end.

      I’m looking at breaking into the SxS scene and really want a 4 seater. BUT I also would like one that is 50” trail capable as well. I have small kids that need seats so we can all go play at one time. Looking around I’m just not seeing that there is one out there. Does anyone know if they do in-fact exist and maybe I’m just missing it?
       
      Thanks for the help...

      I have some wobble in my right rear wheel. Too much wobble.
       
      So I've torn into it and will need two bearings and two (different) seals. I'd like to get them locally if possible but need to know the number on the sides of the bearings and seals as I don't know that my bearing shop can source them by vehicle model. I'm told they're very common bearings.
       
      Any idea what the numbers are if mine end up being illegible?
       
      Thanks,

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      I have a timberwolf that I love. It sat and the carb got gel from this wonderful ethanol. I cleaned it and put a new kit in it. it always started right off. now it cranks forever before it hits and then it will not idle. set according to instructions 23mm float, 4th notch on the pin, 1 1/2 turns out on the AIS. I have tried tweeking all of these some but nothing seems to make a difference. The biggest problem is that I got it back out because the wife has claimed this bike and now it will not run for her. Any help would sure get me out of a bind.

      thanks

      Alright so excuse the ignorance but this is my first carb break down. Got it broke down and cleaned good. But now my problem. I am not sure where to start on adjusting my jets and air fuel mix. Any help on factory settings as a starting point would be great. I have a general knowledge of how it functions and terminology I just need to know where to start

      I have a 1994 Yamaha Timberwolf that has been a strong running machine until recently. This past year I replaced the pulsar coil which resolved a prior problem I was having. After running for several weeks without a hitch, I one day went out to start it and it would not. The starter motor is turning but it does not engage the engine. Can anyone suggest a remedy to get it running again?
      I have gone over the whole electrical system while in the process of correcting the pulsar coil problem. I believe where I hear the starter motor turning the problem lies elsewhere; I think.

      Hi i have a 94 Timberwolf 4x4.
      I got it at the beginning of the summer and it ran great all summer apart for an idling issue.
      I looked into it and i had oil in my air box and when i checked the dip stick it looks like it was overfllled.
      I took some oil out of the motor jumped on the bike and put it in gear.. nothing.. it runs great but wont drive. i tried it again off the bike and it drove a few feet but once i gave it any kind of power it would act like it was in neutral even though i know it wasnt. i tried cycling the gears and in reverse but i wasnt getting anywhere. it acts like it is going into gear and cycling through them but i cant get power to the wheels. i tried taking more oil out of it and adding new oil to the bike and it seemed to make it feel like it was shifting into drive or reverse easier but it still wont drive..
      i talked to the guy that does small engine work in my town (although he is always booked up for 3 months at a time) so i didnt bring it in yet but he said something about some locking pin that seems to break on these models that would actually keep it from engaging into gear.. its located on the inside of the lever that you push forward for drive or backwards for reverse (i think this may not be the problem since i did have it moving somewat with no weight on the bike).
      any ideas?
