  1. Baffled, stumped and flabbergasted

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    Hi all, Big Bear 250, 2008. The most puzzling issue I have ever seen. It pulls starts like an angel (one pull, even cold), but will never start on starter - the starter cranks fine. Once started it runs perfectly. Idles forever, revs up and down... anything you want. No smoke, nothing...

  4. Case/generator cover not aligning properly

    Yamaha YFM660R Raptor (2001-2005)
    It's the small cover that goes over the starter gears. For some odd reason I just cant get the cover to go flush with the main case. Top part of cover is flush but bottom half sticks out about a 1/8" inch. Any idea what is holding the cover up? I know it is not the gears because I tried putting...

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    Hey everyone, this is my first post on a forum. I have owned quads for several years, but I'm a young kid and don't really know too much about them. I have several questions. First off, when I hit the start button, I hear a click coming from the starter relay, so I decided to connect the two...

  10. Starter spins it, but will only start with the pull rope.

    Yamaha Wolverine 350 / 450
    The starter button works fine and the engine spins over, but it will not fire. One pull on the starter rope though and it runs like a top. Wierd. I changed the coil, not expecting much. No change. Maybe the starter is drawing so much current that the coil is not working properly...
