  1. Okay I my ride runs but when I load it in the truck or go up a hill it will flood out and not want to start again. Before I go and spend a lot on a new carb I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on this. Also like a big dummy when I bought it used and it had sit for a while I did not clean the fuel tank out and now im going to pull it off and clean it and was wondering also if anyone had any suggestions on what would be something good to clean it with. I have read to use acetone and then was told to use alcohol. Any help would be highly appreciated.

  2. I have a 1995 Timberwolf 250 2x4 and it still has the original exhaust on it and its not to loud and then on the other hand its not real silent. If I was to replace mine other than a major performance or noise reason I would put on the original again and the cost through the dealer is only about $150.00.

  3. Hey thanks for the input. Wasnt for sure as the cable doesnt look bad, just rusty from where the guy I got it from had it sitting around. I will go with my original gut feeling and just get a new one.

  4. Got another question....lol.... im pretty good at asking and always want to try and help answer some if I can.... my question is - my choke/starter cable doesnt seem to me seating all the way when in the non choked position. I can see some rust up around the lever on the cable part itself and was wondering if there is a way you can lube these or would it be best to just replace it with a new. Any info is highly appreciated.

  5. Okay im going riding tomorrow and went to start the Wolf to make sure all is fine and it still idles on its own and acceleration is good. But when I rev it up and at idle im still getting the black smoke of either running rich or lean. I know on the needle jet that depending where you set the lock tab it can cause you to run either way so I put the lock ring in the center on the needle jet. Any other suggestions on something I might be missing. Thanks

  6. I looked around and here is a link that has one and seemed to be the best price. Also check on ebay as I have found alot of parts there at a very reasonable price. Just go to ebay and type in your info "1994 Yamaha Timberwolf 250" and it will bring up whats on there, plus once you click on something there is a lot that have online stores and they have a lot of parts. Heres the link and I hope this helps.

  7. Welcome, I have to agree with ya on this being a awesome forum. I have only been on here since the beginning of this week and the people on here are outstanding. I have joined other ATV forums and have posted questions and maybe within a few weeks I might get a reply. Here people are helping and sharing their knowledge and I to will share and help out anyway I can.

  8. Just a update. I put the lock tab on the needle jet in the center of the jet as I had it running lean and adjusted my throttle cable and now the Wolf will sit and idle and has no hesitation when I throttle it up. I want to thank all that replied for their help and info as it paid off. Awesome forum..........:biggrin:

  9. I havent done the throttle cable adjustment yet as I didnt really understand it, but I will look in the manual again tonight when I get home. I have the pilot jet at 2 1/2 turns, but I just noticed that the needle jet isnt clipped in like it is suppose to be. Im going to fix that when I get home from work tonight. Thank you for your response as it made me look a little harder and now might have the solution.

  10. Thanks, im still open to giving it a shot. Dont mind jumping right in helping. I have looked for a good forum for ATV's and this is in my opinion. I like the fact that everyone seems to be on several times a week and willing to help. Found one that I posted a couple threads on and no response for almost 3 weeks. I know that I will be on this site at least once a day if not more. Thanks to the person who put it together.

  11. Just from the experience I had with mine putting fuel in the intake box, I would pull the bottom of your carb and make sure your float isnt sticking. May want to pull the carb and clean it. Make sure to pull the jets and take a small piece of wire (bread wrapper) and clean in each one and then blow it out with the compressor.

  12. Got a question and hopefully find some help. I have a 95 Timberwolf 250 that I picked up and it didnt want to idle. I have rebuild the carb with new kit replacing all the jets and float seat. Blew out the ports with the air compressor after I soaked the carb and cleaned the ports with a fine piece of wire and it still wont idle on its own. Has new air filter. I had it running and sprayed around the carb and carb joint and didnt get a rapid acceleration as if I had a leak. I read somewhere how the standard jets are like a number #40 and people have replaced them with a bigger jet. I called the local dealer here and they said they cant order jets and was wondering if this could be the problem and if so where can you order them at. Any info/help is highly appreciated. Sorry for being so long, just want to get as much info out as I can.
