Hi there, new owner to a Bayou 220 and could use some input from those who have owned these. At idle only, I am hearing a distinctly noticeable amount of chatter noise coming from the lower right side of the engine - right in the the clutch housing area. It's like a light clanking sound like something is loose in there. It goes away as soon as you give it throttle. Shifting in and out of gear is smooth and there is no change in the noise if you have it in or out of gear. The clutch doesn't slip at all, it's just that noise. I can also feel it when my hand is on the the clutch housing. I just replaced the oil and filter with 10w30 motor oil per spec. Any thoughts?
New member here. This looks like a great website. I've got a problem with my 2002 Bear Tracker. It's a long story so I'll try and cut it down. I bought the Bear Tracker for cheap because it didn't run. I was told one of the valve rocker arms was broken. I pulled on the starter and it turned so I decided to purchase it. It was true, one of the rocker arms was broken however, after removing the head I saw the piston was at the top of the cylinder. I pulled the cylinder and the piston came off with it. The piston was a mess and had broken away from the connecting rod. Parts of the piston had fallen into the lower unit. I pulled the engine out and started the dis-assembly. It was all pulled apart but I couldn't pull the crank shaft apart without the proper tools. I also didn't like the idea of removing all the bearing pressed into the casings. I found a lower unit on Ebay for cheap but it was missing both sides. I bought it and after it arrived I took the entire mess down to the Yamaha dealer and payed them to reassemble it with a new piston and rings and a fixed cylinder. After getting it home and reinstalling it, it ran great. I was very happy however after it warmed up this clanking noise showed up. I took the bike back and the dealership went through what they had done but couldn't find anything wrong with what they did. This leads me to believe that there was something wrong with the lower unit part that I bought off Ebay. So, finally, my question is, what is in the central part of the lower unit that would make a clanking noise when warmed up. I can't see why a bearing would make a clanking noise or anything else in that area. Any ideas would be very much appreciated. Thank you, thank you thank you. Ps... believe it or not, this is the cut down version.
So I was getting the quads off the trailer after sitting for 3.5 months and one makes this loud 'clanking' sound from the rear end. Its a 2000 Warrior 350. As best as I can tell, its from the axle area but I'm not 100% sure. It happens when it is rolling. It didn't do this when we put them on the trailer back in march. Here are two videos showing the sound; [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj5AMJ2_H7U[/ame] [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cborkO8p5Dk[/ame] The second video shows it the best. I dont know what it is... bearings maybe? Please let me know!
