1990s YFM350 Moto4 - Model Identification

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Just wondered if anyone can help, I have just bought a 1990s YFM350 Moto4, and I am struggling to identify the model/ year of the bike. I was told it was a 1997, but would not count on that.

Its a 2WD model with cable operated brakes shoes on the front, cable operated disc at the rear and the choke next to the speedo.

I have been trawling sets of microfiche, but can't seem to find a model with the same brakes as mine.

The only part of the frame number I can make out looks like it starts 2VA.

Thanks in advance, if anyone can help.

Hi, I‘ve managed to get to the back brake, which is a disc, not drum as I first thought so I have amended my first post.

Cheers Tim

you can find the VIN # by the shift lever on the left of the bike ... very hard to see but it is there ,,, flashlight and rag are the best tools and depending on your eyes, a magnifying glass too ... once you have that VIN, you can run it and find out everything you need to know

      I picked up a 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2X4 a week or so back in non running condition, apparently they said it needed a new carburetor or a battery, I cleaned the carburetor thoroughly and got it running on idle and without choke now and it shifts into all the gears even into reverse. Aside from making me bounce a little when trying to start out with a bit of throttle the shock suffice to say needs work. Anyways I made a video of it running and would like your opinions on it, as to how it sounds while running. It seems like it has a little whine I'm not sure why that is maybe someone can tell me what it is. Anyways here is the video.

      Hello! I picked up a YFM400 and I would love to talk shop with knowledgeable co-owners, and I'd love input about the machine from anyone here who clearly knows more than I do! Cheers from NY

      I have a 110cc atv not sure of a brand its a Chinese model. I put on a new harness with cdi solenoid and all those. I have put a new starter on, and carburetor. I bypassed the start button cause it was just making the solenoid click. with the new button switch the atv will crank but not start. I tried to jump the solenoid and it did nothing. I am stumped. also I noticed gas leaking from the carburetor and when I took the filter off there was gas in it. I cleaned the carburetor and nothing was stuck or clogged. can someone help me out.

      Hello. New here. Just picked up a used 350 motor out of a 1991 big bear. Going to put into my 1986 350 moto 4. From what I've read the engines are the same. The only difference so far I've notice is I have to change out transfer case. The moto 4 isn't 4x4. Has anyone done the same swap and any advice before I tackle it.

      Hi all, I have an 86 motor 4 that has starter clutch issues. (YFM225)
      Because I cant afford to put much money into this old machine, I hope to get some guidance before spending more. (already spent too much!)
      I have replaced the starter clutch multiple times with used ones that are supposedly good. Each time it fixes the problem for a short time, and then it returns. Sometimes I have noticed the socket head cap screws have loosened. I clean and re-assemble using removable locktite and that seems to help, but still issues with the clutch itself.
      Any suggestions?
      Questions, is it maybe the small springs behind the rollers are weak?
      Regarding the surface on the flywheel that the rollers touch. I have noticed that most of the flywheels I have used do have small wear marks on them. I have smoothed them out using a small stone to the point you can barely feel them. Does this surface need to be perfect?
      Are clutches and flywheels matched. It seems that depending on which flywheel I use, the timing can vary slightly like its not quite firing at the right time, hard to start, etc. My theory is that there must be slight variances in the keyway location between flywheels. Is my theory correct?
      Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
