Need HELP Moto 4 Clutch Carry Assembly Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I have a liitle issue here that has left me scratching my head. I recently bought a Moto 4 87 2wd. About 20 minutes after I got it home I heard a loud wrenching and snapping and then what sounded of metal whirling around in places it shouldnt. I opened up the right crankcase and found that a spring on the clutch carry assembly has broken unto ublivion. Not the clutch now, the clutch carry assembly. I bought a new spring, replaced it. And put it all back together (with some difficulty, I am unsure about the reinstallation of one part - see video in link below). I started it up no problem, with the immediate wrenching and snapping and whirling again. Opened it up again, another broken spring. I have now ordered enough springs to replace ALL the srings at the same time because I have noticed all the springs but one are very loose. Attached is a link to a video I have of the problem, please let me know if you have ANY information that could be helpful.

The video can be found here. [ame]

Great video explaining what happened and what you did. It looks to me that your centrifugal clutch assembly is toast. That's those 4 shoes that engage the drum with the springs you've replaced. You'll have to pull the clutch assembly out of that drum (bend the lock-tabs free on the center shaft of that clutch, buzz the (22mm?) nut off the shaft and pull that shoe assembly out - check the inside of the drum, looks to me in your video that the clutch & drum are so worn that the shoes are moving excessively and that's whats breaking your springs - they're being stretched too far.

That secondary assembly in the lower left corner with the spring, plate and triangle of balls looks like you've got it right - that's what "disengages" the clutch when you shift.

Let me know if your clutch is bad, I might have a spare in the barn.

Alright getting somewhere! Thank you for your response. I am actually going on vacation tomorrow morning so alas, my bike sits. Incomplete, until I return a month from now. When I get back I will take off the clutch carry assembly and let you know what I see. (Or just post another video) In the meantime, if you happen to come across that extra clutch in your barn let me know. Either way, thanks again and I will post again when I return! Last thing, what is the possibility that its just the springs that are warn out?

Not likely it's the springs - the only way they'd go "bad" is if they're over extended.... because the clutch assembly is worn. When you get it apart you'll be able to see where the friction material is supposed to be, it'll likely be mostly gone or heavily grooved. You might need the drum as well.

So I have returned from vacationland. A wonderful 2 months in Maine. ATV HEAVEN out there. I have put the new springs in and started her up. No wrenching or snapping or whirling or anything that would make me think another spring broke. So fingers crossed that's one crisis averted. I am still interested in your clutch carry assembly though if you have one lying around. I need to fix up the brakes and some other general stuff but otherwise I think were good. She does still has a clicking noise that I think has something to do with the starter. It only happens when I use the eletric start, and when I turn it off it gives one "click". I will post a video soon of the bike running. And and all comments or suggestions are very helpful.

      Being confined to the farm with the corona virus pandemic, I have started working on long abandoned projects.  I have a 95 Yamaha Moto 4 350 and the CDI box went bad (I think).  Finally broke down and spent the money for a new one.  It had the same part number as the old one, but the old box as 2 extra wires on the pig tail and not all the wire colors with the new box match the old box, so I'm not sure how to hook it up.  Have searched the internet on and off for some time but can't seem to find anyone who can help.  Does anyone out there know enough that they would try to help me?

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!

      got that 220 I'm 'servicing'..........  well it turned into a guts and oil job....  I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm.  also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust)  I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering)  I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...?  Maybe a factor?   What should the clearance be on the valves?  How should I check the timing on this bike?  (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)

      I posted earlier looking for a wiring diagram, but maybe someone can help me with the problem if they’ve had it before. 
       
      The quad Will start and idle ok, when I open the throttle it will rev all the way up until WOT and then it dies back down to idle, and if I keep the throttle wide open it will rev back up. It will do this over and over and over. 
       
      I replaced the carb, (twice), Rectifier, battery, and spark plug.  The Stator ohmed out to the proper specs from dinli.  The other issue i can see is I’m not getting 12v on the choke circuit. The lights don’t work either. 
       
      possible bad key switch? Maybe the new rectifier is bad? All the contacts on the key switch also ohm out properly    
      comprsssion is up to 125 psi and spark is there. 
       
      Reed valves look great.....
       
      im at a loss. Any trouble shooting advice would be appreciated.

      I am a new atv owner...I bought a used atv this summer (pretty sure it is a wolverine but reg card from last owner didnt actually say that so idk for sure). It ran great for most the summer and early fall but one day I tried starting it and it turned over a while without starting and then suddenly it quit turning over at all. No click or anything.
      I charged battery and light turns on showing neutral and heatlight can go on.
      A few other things that may be pertinent: The pull start is missing, I have a fluke multimeter but not many other advanced tools (or relevant experience), there is an extra aftermarket led light attached to front but it doesnt work either... never looked into why since I didnt need it. 
      I looked for a fuse box and didnt find one.
      Please recommend some easier things to try first as I really want to avoid taking it in if I can (having one income and 4 kids can keep out extra cash, plus I want to learn). Pictures would be awesome if possible. Thanks!

      I have recently rebuilt my Yamaha warrior 350 engine and when I got it all back together with no “spare parts” i went to start it and realized it’s in reverse. I went to put it in drive and the shifter won’t budge, I took the linkage off and tried to use vise grips but it won’t budge at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m hoping it’s not something internal!

      I have a Yamaha Big Bear 350 and the reverse doesn’t work, it shifts from low to high easily but it won’t go back to reverse. I’m new to this stuff, so I’ll take any help. Any ideas?

      So here's the deal people, I have an old Avenger 350 4X4 Shaft Driven ATV. They only made them in the early 80's their thought of as the first four wheelers from around back when Suzuki made one in 1982. I believe the engine on it is a Kohler as I watched this video https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=avenger+400+atv&view=detail&mid=1E10E939019CA07770031E10E939019CA0777003&FORM=VIRE but mine is a 350. That's if its original, and it all looks original. I am wondering where I can get parts for this engine, or really what engine is it. I have no way to find the year, unless you guys know where a serial number might be. Every sticker is worn off. IF anyone has any information at all on these old wheelers it would be greatly appreciated. I specifically need the gaskets for the carb, and don't tell me I could build them please I want to restore it as perfectly as I can. I can take pictures of the wheeler/carb if it'll help. Let me know.
