01 Warrior sputters badly- starving for air
I got an 01 warrior for $300 not running. found that the motor was locked. drained the oil and found water and mud in the engine.
pulled the engine, tore it down, rebuilt the top end (rebored the cylinder and put in a used one i had from a big bear 350 rebuild.
put all back together and it fired right up- i was impressed. the old air filter was fiber glass and come apart and sucked into the carb so i cleaned and put the carb back together (this was before the initial startup)
has aftermarket dg exhaust which melted the airbox so i dont have oem airbox or air filter. even without the filter, the bike is still starving for air. Ive tried adjusting the mixture screw in and out, no difference. it idles, starts, and runs great up to half throttle. also the rear axle bearings are shot- what should i replace them with?
Hoping to fix and sell soon. fun bike for the most part
