  1. Did you find the solution to your issues? Was is a loose cable?
  2. Great post, my big bear might be a bit hard on the steering as well, this is something I should check out.
  3. Did you find a solution to your issue? I have had similar problems with my big bear 95.

  7. Hey there, I splitted open my crankcase on my big bear to change my shift drum that broke . Now I'm at the step where I'd like to clean both sides of the crankcase & clutch cover, first thing being to remove the old gasket sticked there. I think I messed up by trying to be quick & used a copper brush on a power drill to brush it off:frown:... I know that copper is softer than metal, but did I just screw up my aluminum crankcase edges by doing that? Or will it be ok with a proper gasket that I'm about to order? Also, doing that left some residues inside the crankcase half, I was wondering if I can clean the interior of the crankcase (bearings still installed inside) with some water? I think I read somewhere that you can do that if you take care of drying out the bearings with compressed air and oiling them up with engine oil afterwards. Thanks for any help!
  8. I all, I'm a new member from near Montreal, Qc! Bought myself my first quad, a 1995 Yamaha Big Bear 350 that needed some love, already got some help here about maintenance. Sadly my transmission failed so I'm currently replacing my drum shift, I might need some extra advice for stuff not covered in my Clymer manual, I think this is the place to be... Happy to join!
