    the problem is the engine.

    for the engine to turn over i must pull the cord while i'm pushing the electric starter. the engine starts for a little bit but then's stops.

Might be the starter going bad but you can also check the wires to see if any are curroded. Also, check to see if terminals are rusted or curroded and fuses. put more detailes and i might be able to help.

My 2000 Yamaha worrier 350 Es four wheeler isn't shifting gears right after I start it an ride I can shift but I think only when I don't hold clutch in if its not started I can't shift my gears

Hi Stephanie, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service department and inquire about any possible quick fix. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if possible, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.

Four wheeler back fires

If the motor has two carbs then balance the carbs. Balancing the carbs basically means being certain the slides on both carbs open up simultaneously. If one carb opens sooner than the other then it 'drives' the other carb and can cause the backfire. Other things can can cause a backfire but lets start here first.
