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:

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.

I have a yamaha big bear 350 engine bogs down when climing a hill


Could be a problem with a bad float that is overloading the engine with fuel. Does it take a little bit to "clear its throat" once you are on flat ground again?
