Yamoto 70 quad open wire? Please Help!

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a 2004 Yamoto 70 quad in a trade (for something I was hoping to get $50 for)

I am told that this is a knock off honda?...

The guy I got it from said, that he thinks the ignition coil is bad... I think the problem is much simpler & that it's just not plugged in. The attached picture is of under the seat where the battery goes.

The red and green obviously land on the battery terminals, but where does that square plug go? I can not find any open connectors...

Could there be a small harness that's missing that also lands on the battery, and connects to this plug?

Any help is appreciated.

I've been doing a lot of research as quads are kind of foreign to me. I think you are right about the kill switch. Can anyone confirm this?

Also the piece the guy was calling an ignition coil, is just a solenoid. I will test it tonight and hopefully get this thing fire up this weekend.

That hand drawn one is nice. I'm pretty sure that clears it up.

Two more questions...

To test this solenoid do I just check for continuity between the two main post with the ignition on and the switch in the run position?

&

Does anyone have tips for tuning up a quad that has set for a couple years?

Thanks.

yes & dump the old gas, new gas with double recommended amount of seafoam, new plug and if everything starts and runs well, ride it. if hard to start could be valve lash off a bit and/or dirty carb (seafoam should take care of that, remove bowl on carb and if its really bad, soak the carb in some cleaner first)

and of course the fluids, oil and front and rear diffs...

Ok, so... I put it together, put in about a gallon of gas, added some sea foam, and jumped it with a spare deep cycle battery (the battery in it needs replaced), and it fired up. It ran for about 10 seconds & stalled out. When I went to restart my battery was dead.

I guess that's good enough for tonight. I will get a new battery soon.

Thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.

      I have a 2004 kymco mongoose 50 two stroke and it was a mess and it didnt run when I got it. There was practically no wiring harness and all of the wires that were there were electrical taped together. Long story short I ordered a aftermarket wiring harness (Complete Wiring Harness Electrics Wire Loom Kit CDI Rectifier Ignition Coil Magneto Stator For GY6) installed it and now I have no spark. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

      I have a 2013 KQ I bought it new but rolled it a few years ago. I have replaced the left lower A-arm and left tie rod, the steering is still a little sketchy as I just eye balled the alignment. But the major issue is the left front tire cambers out at the top and has wore the tire bald. Tires have about 2000 miles on them but other 3 are half tread and left front is a slick.. I can not see anything else bent and don't know what to do..

      On Wednesday, September 18, our ATV was stolen from in front of our house after the locks were cut. This was around 2-3:15 AM.
      We realize the likelihood of ever finding the four-wheeler again is slim to none, but we had to try and put the word out there. We have put countless hours in to restoring this Banshee. It was more than just a passion project, it also was our investment for a down payment for our future house. We are devastated and beyond heart-broken. If you see any suspicious postings on Facebook Marketplace, Letgo, Craigslist, etc., or have any other information, please contact us or the Prince William County PD.
      *Update* We received a tip last night that it was possibly posted on Facebook Marketplace around 8AM yesterday morning with only pictures of the front and of the back of the ATV. The description only said: PM for more details. This came up in someone’s FB Marketplace feed that has it set for a 50 mile radius from Hartwood, VA. She also has her feed set to automatically translate everything into Spanish, so It could also possibly be posted in Spanish.
      WHAT WAS STOLEN:
      2004 Yamaha Banshee YFZ 350
      White plastics with bright green and pink graphics/stickers
      STOLEN FROM:
      Prince William County, Triangle, Virginia
      $500 REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO RECOVERY. BONUS FOR CONVICTION.

      I bought a 2003 Recon from a kid that beat it – all plastics cracked etc, When I replaced the rear brake the inside – axle, rear oil  - were clean and in good shape, so I think Honda won the kid vs quad battle.
      It shifts a little clunky (I made the adjustment) and after riding for a while I get a hot friction material smell I wonder if he used the wrong oil and if any damage was done.
