Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
Hi, Couturechris and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat is worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

i have this bike too. There's a small compartment on the back, you need a key to open it. There's a little sliding bit that hides the keyhole. open that up, there's two wingnuts holding the seat on.
Your bike may be different, there's several different versions of this bike that i've seen. This is how it works on mine.

hello, check and see if plug is firing a blue color, if not you may need a stator-pickup coil, i have a 2000 warrior, it is firing, orange and white color, stator neede to be replaced, pickup coil was going out, also check ign coil, these have a problem with getting weak after a while. most likely it is your stator pickup coil, no blue fire from plug, no running the motor. my stator pickup coil was going out. no blue fire from plug, i was told by a yamaha mechanic, no blue fire from plug it will not run, has to be blue, not orange or white looking fire.make sure carb is clean and all jets inside are clean, and air passage ways

Your cylinder is probably full of fuel, becareful here. Disable the spark and kick it over with the spark plug out to remove the fuel.
Your problem sounds like a stuck float in the carburator. It needs to be removed and cleaned out good.
