Question about 2003 Yamaha YZ 250
I was recently offered a deal on a yamaha 4-wheeler that doesn't run. The carberator is not attached at all, so I can't hear it run or nothing. I would realy like to own the 4-wheeler, is rebuilding a carb. a hard task? Is there anything that I need to replace or check for wear that will help with this task? The wheeler is a 1990 yamaha timberwolf 4x4 350
Firstly, if you are not a mechanical person you should never buy a vehicle that does not run.
However, here are some basic tests.
1. Connect a good battery.
2. Remove the spark plug.
3. Turn the motor using the starter motor or kick starter.
4. check for spark by inserting a new plug into the plug cap. (make sure the plug is grounded).
If the motor turns freely and there is spark, chances are good that the motor will run. This does not mean that the motor is in a good condition. Only with the motor running will you be able to know for sure.
You will now have to source a carb and fit it to the 4 wheeler.
Fitting the carb is not too difficult. Check that the intake manifold is not perished or torn, and remember to use the airfilter.
Enjoy the ride !
