G'day from Down Under

Recommended Posts

So I'm Steve. I just inherited an old Yammy YFM250 (91) and it needs a "little love" so to speak. I'm a fitter and small engine mechanic for a living so I have the basics to fix the poor old girl up. But I'm very new to quads. I really only want to use the old girl as a hunting vehicle so performance isnt high on my list of priorities (good thing seeing as its an old 250!)

Anyway if someone can supply a workshop manual for the beast that would be awesome. I'll post some pics of the refurbishment but I forget to do a "before" shot.

Thanks gor the manual links. they should be useful indeed. Looks like I have a lot of work ahead of me with this project might do a carby rebuild to start off. also needs some electrical work as pretty much every exposed wire is split and has core showing. This just gets more and more involved every time I look at it lol

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.

      This may sound like a stupid question, as I'm prone to ask sometimes. But...I drive a '96 Cherokee with the inline 4.0 non-interference engine and it doesn't like driving in the heat so much. Since I'm a car down right now I'm driving it a LOT more than I used to. After a lot of driving in this hot weather it starts slower, but still starts and runs ok.

      So to help it out I've been raising the hood and putting 2 box fans right on top of the engine to help it cool. I hadn't thought about it but my Mom asked if cooling it down too quickly could be bad for the engine. And since I don't know I thought I'd ask here.

      Any harm in using my method to cool an engine down much more quickly than normal?

      Hey fellas,
      posting from Western Australia.
      Been on here a bit lurking and read alot about the Suzy ltf250-300 quadrunners.
      Im building one out of two shit boxs so i thought id put back in a bit and post some info on my build.
      Ive got a late 90s 2504wd and a 982wd,both seen better days!
      Frames rusted,cases corroded etc etc.
      One had 20,000klms,the other 3000klms,picked them both up a while back for a project in the shed. The 2wd one with low miles had been used on salt lakes in the outback
      Lower engine cases corroded badly. So i used the cases off the other one,they were sandblasted and the 2wd internals are like new so in they went after painting.
      High comp piston arrived the other day so i"ll get it bored next and finish the motor off.
      Started on frame the other day,replace all bottom rails and fronts where suspension bolts on with gal tubing.
      Cheers Goldchaser

      CraziMagZ put me onto your Forum from another one & like her I'm into Joyners. I've had a good look around your site and like what I read, so hope to become part of your community. I'm pretty thick skinned & don't get upset to easy but I will bite back in the spirit of debating a point. Look forward to knowing you all.
      Cheers Mike.
