  1. Yamaha warrior shifting/transmission problems

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    My father was riding my quad, and stated that it made a loud pop noise. After it made the noise the quad stopped going into gear. The gearing seems to be messed up. Neutral acts like first gear and once you shift into first gear the quad dies. I currently have the quad apart. There appears to be...
  2. To Buy A Warrior Or To Keep Looking..

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    I've recently been given that "bug" for quads. I've never really been interested in them until I rode my friend's built Blaster and 400ex. Now I have to have my own. I was really considering a Warrior because of how cheap they are, their reliability, and the fact they have a reverse gear. I'm...

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    I recently acquired a 1988 Yamaha warrior from a friend that was partially taken apart due to it making a knocking noise.

    Hello all, I was recently gifted a 1987 Warrior from it's original owner.

  6. Warrior making loud clapping sound

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    I recently bought a warrior for cheap knowing I would need to replace the cylinder head and a couple other things in the very near future. I rode it for around 15 minutes before it broke down. Just yesterday I had it all fixed up, replaced the cylinder head, cam chain, intake manifold, and a...
  7. Warrior won't start

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    So I fixed my starter clutch problem and I finally got my warrior to start last night. I had to choke it because it's cold out but that's normal. Today it took forever to start the first time and even when the engine was hot I could not get it to start. I took the carb apart and cleaned it and...

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    So my mom told me to get her warrior running again and sell it. Well I got it to start and two seconds later the lower connecting rod bearing went out.

  14. bogs down at full throttle

    Yamaha YFM350 Raptor/Warrior ('87-Present)
    Glad i could find a place to help. Having a hard time figuring out what's wrong. Everything runs fine until I get to full throttle then it bogs down and wants to die until I pull the clutch and then it catches. Everything is stock except for a K&N air filter. Haven't had it long, and it didn't...

    Is there anyway to get all the stator questions/answers in one spot? I tried the link in the sticky but just got a "404". Is there another source that shows each year of the Warriors/Raptors wiring colors online? Seems like several people have had this problem. And is there a definitive...

    Hi i am new to this forum and was wondering about an idle problem on my carb.
