Yamaha Timberwolf. How can I find model number to order parts


If you can tell me your vin - or your year I can tell you what model you have. But - if you go onto any parts site - such as cheapcycle.com or partsmonster - you name it - you won't need your 'model' # - just your year. You'd click - Yamaha OEM Parts, then ATV then Year - 1992 - 1998 was the Timberwolf - a lot of parts from the 99 - 04 Bear Tracker will work (just about only changed the plastics and carb in 99 - 04) same engine/transmission/rear end, etc. the brakes also went from drum to disc - but you'd click on the year - and then look - the timberwolf will be right there the 1992 - 1998 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 - I can't remember if they offered a timberwolf 350. If you can tell me the vin or year - like I said - I'll reply with your exact model # - but you can buy and order most parts just by model name and year 95 Timberwolf.

Yamaha Timberwolf. How do I find model number to order parts?


I apologize - my answer to the previous question didn't really clarify your actual question - Your VIN can be found along the frame rail - left hand side - about a foot or so ahead of your left foot guard -

26028714-jbdqfs5232kzbw0rj532ox50-2-0.png

If it's still there - your model number is here:26028714-jbdqfs5232kzbw0rj532ox50-2-2.png

If you can read your VIN - and here's a tip to know you're getting the whole number and it's not rusted away a digit; your second digit should be a (Y) - if you write down your VIN, second digit is Y so you know the placement is right - the 10th digit is the year. And here are the breakdowns for that 10th Digit:

(For all Yamahas - not just the Timberwolf):
88 - J, 89 - K, 90 - L, 91 - M, 92 - N, 93 - P, 94 - R, 95 - S, 96 - T, 97 - V, 98 - W, 99 - X, 2000 - Y, 01 - 1, 02 - 2, 03 - 3

From 1992 - 1998 the Yamaha 250 4-stroke, shaft drive, trail bike was the Timberwolf.

From 1999 - 2004 the Yamaha 250 4-stroke, shaft drive, trail bike was the Bear Tracker.

*****SAME ENGINE, SAME TRANSMISSION, SAME REAR END, TIRE SIZE, PULL START - THINGS THEY DEFINITELY CHANGED IN 1999 WHEN THEY STARTED CALLING THEM THE BEAR TRACKER: - PLASTICS BECAME A LITTLE LONGER I BELIEVE; AND THE SEAT WITHOUT A DOUBT BECAME LONGER. THE CARB WENT TO A CONSTANT VACUUM - INSTEAD OF THE SLIDE CARB WHERE THE THROTTLE CABLE WENT THROUGH THE CAP LIKE THE TIMBERWOLF. HARD TO REMEMBER - BUT I THINK THE TIMING CHAIN TENSIONER BECAME UNADJUSTABLE - AND NOT MUCH ELSE CHANGED. IN 99 THEY EVEN KEPT THE BRAKING SYSTEM THE SAME. SOMETIME AROUND 2000, 01 OR SO THE BRAKE SYSTEM CHANGED FOR THE FRONT WHEN YAMAHA WENT TO DISC BRAKES. HOPE THIS HELPS. ANYTHING ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR TIMBERWOLF JUST LET ME KNOW - I'VE OWNED, REBUILT, BOUGHT, SOLD, TRADED A TON - I'VE CURRENTLY GOT A 99 BEAR TRACKER THAT IS THE MOST DEPENDABLE 250 4 STROKE I'VE EVER OWNED AND A 1996 YAMAHA WOLVERINE 350 4X4 - I'VE REBUILT THEM FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP. THOSE BIKES ARE GOLDEN IF YOU TAKE CARE OF THEM AND DO A LITTLE ROUTINE MAINTENANCE. ALL THE BEST - JUSTIN MCCARTNEY

THE 99 I MENTIONED THAT I STILL HAVE:
26028714-jbdqfs5232kzbw0rj532ox50-2-5.jpg

A 98 I BOUGHT WITH THE ENGINE IN A MILK CRATE THAT I BOUGHT, REBUILT & SOLD:
26028714-jbdqfs5232kzbw0rj532ox50-2-9.png

A 2004 I BOUGHT, REBUILT AND SOLD:
26028714-jbdqfs5232kzbw0rj532ox50-2-14.jpg
All the best - let me know if you're ever in a jam with yours; not too much I haven't seen, fixed or had to deal with.

Yamaha timberwolf


Disc or drum? If they are drum, you let them wear out and they have expanded wider than the inside of the brake hub. If you cannot retract the shoes you are going to have to totally disassemble the entire left side, including brake system. Clamp the brake line off with long nose vise-grips. Then carefully start disassembly.

If they are disc, the piston is stuck, Same process, more complicated to properly successfully repair! I have had some real tough ones over the years!!

Think about a professional?? Unless you live in North Alabama.

'94 Timberwolf 250 2X4 starts great when I have battery charger hooked up, coughs, backfires and dies when I unhook the charger. NEW Battery, fully charged, seems to crank well when charger is OFF, but...


Hey Ccp.. A new battery and it did not help the cranking issue?? hhmm... PLEASE take the battery and have the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) checked... just because its new and has voltage does not mean its a "good battery"... It takes AMPERAGE to crank and run your machine.. (*see 35 amp fast charge!!)..Autozone, O'reilly's, a battery shop can check the CCA... once you have MADE SURE the battery is good, then you can proceed to diagnosing the real issue...This is the procedure a professional mechanic takes..so do this first... once you have determined the battery is (good or you got a new one)..and ... once you have the machine running,,WITHOUT a charger hooked up.. time to check the output.. you should get 13.5+ volts at 3000+rpm.. if you are not getting 13.5+ volts, its time for electrical diagnosis...This manual should have all the electrical specifications needed to diagnose your issues...
