Hi, i have a 2004 yamaha raptor 660 and it idles good but when i give it a little throttle it backfires sputters and dies if you dont release the throttle, but seems to gain rpms if i turn the choke on a little, i have checked the parking brake limiter and the reverse limiter issue that a lot if 660s have and still no luck, also the carbs are clean and the foat level is set to factory spec and the ignition timing is on mark. What could the problem be? i couldnt find a raptor 660r on here so instead i put xt 660r in the product i have but its a 2004 yamaha raptor 660r LE

SOURCE: raptor 660 idles but no throtle response

Turn off the gas and remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Get a set of the stock NGK spark plugs your bike came with. Check for spark on each cylinder before installing the plugs.

Now go to the idle and air screws on the outside of each of the carbs. IMPORTANT > > GENTLY turn both screws all the way in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn the screws EXACTLY one and one half turns outward.

SYNCHRONIZE THE CARBS
Remove the air filter and rubber fittings to allow you to see into the throat of both carbs. You may need a mirror to see inside. You need to be able to see the slides go up and down when you twist the throttle. Now turn the fitting where the cable goes into each carb such that there is just a bit of slack in the cable, 1/16" is plenty. Lock ONE of the cable adjusters down tight. All further adjustments will be made on the other carb.

With the motor turned off twist the throttle very slowly while looking at the slides. Both slides need to begin lifting at the exact same moment. If the slides don't raise at the exact same time then slowly twist the throttle until the locked adjuster slide just barely starts to move. Hold the throttle still and turn the adjuster on the other carb so that the slide on that carb just barely starts to move also. Now recheck the slide movement timing. Do this process until the slides on both carbs begin to raise at the EXACT same moment. Lock down the loose adjuster and re-check the slides.

BALANCE THE CARBS
Turn the throttle screw on the LEFT carb one half turn inward. Now start the engine and get it warmed up. With the engine running, remove the RIGHT spark plug wire. Adjust the idle speed on the left carb to the point where the engine just can't quite stay running and dies. Now put the loose spark plug wire back into place.

Now turn the throttle screw on the RIGHT carb one half turn inward. Restart and rev the engine. Next, remove the LEFT spark plug wire. Adjust the idle speed on the right carb to the point where the engine just can't quite stay running and dies. Now put the loose spark plug wire back into place.

Turn the idle screw on each carb EXACTLY ONE QUARTER turn outward and restart the engine. The engine will be probably be idling very fast. Adjust both the idle screws equally from this point to get to the desired idle speed. Congratulations, you have just synchronized and balanced your carbs.

PLEASE RATE THIS SOLUTION. Thanks!

SOURCE: Yamaha 660 raptor dies when choke is tuned off

hello I am Vortash .. I would say your problem is either blocked idler jets or incorrect fuel mixture ( Air to fuel not correct ) take the bike to your local garage to use their air line unless you have a compressor of your own remove the fuel feed tank side and blow it through with the airline if this don't cure it you will probably need to have the carbs tuned to manufacturesr spec's , If you are more mechanicaly minded strip the idler jets out pass a fine strip of wire through them and replace .You can also get this problem if you have an air leak on the maniflod or the carb bowl etc hope this helps regards Vortash

Drain and replace the gas with fresh.
Remove the air cleaner and spray carb cleaner into the inlet. Work your throttle a little then put everything back together and try to start it.

when its hot and humid you could be having a ignition coil or cable problem.check cables and replace plugs, then take it from there. have your ignition coil tested also. backfiring is a sure sign of an ignition problem

Why does my yamaha 660 only run if the choke is on? What causes it to backfire?


Most of the time it's because the Pilot/Idle jet is clogged in the carburetor. This most often happens because of old fuel sitting in the carburetor during long periods of sitting and non-use. The fuel forms a varnish - a gummy layer inside of your carburetor and clogs the tiny holes in the idle jet. Since fuel can't get through, the engine dies. The hole for the choke is larger, therefore the fuel can still get through it.

Backfires when you try to rev up engine,


check fuel flow and check spark at spark plugs

According to an "ATV Rider" 2009 article, "When the Grizzly was introduced in 1998 as a 600cc machine, the top was blown right off the displacement wars of the time."
It was replaced in 2002 with Yamaha Grizzly 660, an even bigger engine derived from the well-established all-terrain vehicle (ATV) Yamaha Raptor 660R.
Grizzly's 660 cubic centimeter (cc), four-stroke, liquid-cooled single overhead camshaft, five-valve engine performs well in open country, but sometimes it causes serious problems for owners.
Before you call a Grizzly dealer, however, trying a few tricks in your garage can save you a lot of time and money.

Check the fuel level.
Locate the fuel meter indicator on top of the multifunction display.
If it does not work properly, open the fuel tank, and push the Yamaha 660 Grizzly side to side.
Ensure the fuel is not contaminated by water or rust.
If you have not driven your Grizzly 660 for a long time, drain the tank completely, and fill it with a fuel tank cleaner.

Check fuel hoses for cracks or leakage.
The hoses should be soft and simple to bend.
Replace those that show any sign of wear.

Check the compression.
Screw a compression tester into the spark plug hole, and press the electric starter button.
If no compression exists, contact a Yamaha dealer.
Wipe wet or dirty electrodes with a dry cloth.
The spark plug gap should be checked regularly

Correct the spark plug gap.
Measure the gap with a wire thickness gauge.
If necessary, adjust it to 0.8mm using a screwdriver or replace the spark plug.
Use only a Yamaha-specified spark plug.

Check the Yamaha 660 Grizzly's battery.
Operate its electric starter.
If the Grizzly starts quickly, then its battery is in good condition.
If the engine turns slowly, check the battery lead connections, and you may need to change the battery.
If the engine still does not eventually start, your Grizzly is beyond home repair.
