Question about 2000 Yamaha WR 400 F
Runs horrible but starts
I would change the spark plug this is probably not the problem but I have had them look alright but give me some of the same issues. To me it sounds like a carb issue. If it starts and idles but won't run good at higher rpm's then it could be the main jet getting clogged or the float bowl sticking and not letting enough fuel in. You may need to add a fuel filter to the line. You may want to check your timing also.

first you need to remove everything that covers your valve covers(gas tank etc.) remove the intake valve cover,and the rotor nut and timing plug.set the engine a t.d.c.(top dead center)fit a socket onto the rotor nut and turn it counterclockwise until the"I" mark appears align it with the index mark in the timing hole.use a flat feeler gauge between the top of the valve and the adjuster.loosen the locknut and turn the adjuster just until you feel resistance on the feeler guage.hold the adjuster and tighten the lock nut down.i can not tell you the min.clearance spec to your quad since i have a 660 raptor.try using the smallest clearance number.

SOURCE: Cleaning Carb Jets
not to a trained ear also go by rpm and spark plug color
NOTE: use copper wire to clean jets, sync is just thottles are same position as all carb's just leave them adjustments alone will be fine if are out use a 1/8 drill an place in between piston/butterfly to carb bore to sync/calibrate
better use a manometer for adjusting screws
depends on condition of org parts
worn = richer running
new = lean an clean
also if changed the exhaust system need to
re-calibrate carbs for max performance

gravity bleed. make sure fluid is always full. crack open the bleeder screw and let the brake fluid drip until no bubbles. Then close bleeder top off fluid and replace cap. Now, pull the brake handle. If there is no pressure or has bleed down, the master cylinder is kaput.

Sounds like a problem with the starter, could be a starter fuse, relay or solenoid. The start cicuit wiring could also be damaged. If you can pull-start the motor, and it runs fine, you have pretty much eliminated any problems with the motor. Check the wires running from the start button make sure they are intact, also trace them and look for around a 1" cubed black box. This is the relay, when you push the button, if its working, you will feel the box click. Also locate the starter and do the same thing. If you feel or hear the starter click, the solenoid is working. The battery voltage could also be too low to energize the starter motor. Could also be a battery or alternator issue. Check the battery voltage and for any sounds coming from the bike when you push the start button.
