1987 yamaha big bear yfm350fw (4 stroke)
I have a few issues with this ATV.... bought it from brother in law about a month ago and he had it for a few years and the bad more issue is it is stuck in 5th gear. He said it will run just start off in low to begin with and go slow. Has anyone heard of this issue and what could this be? My next issue is after we got it, it ran fine by push button start until last weekend it will not start and just clicks. Brother in law came over the other day and was able to pull start it. I searched what could be the issue of not starting. They say battery is the first thing, I first charged the battery and still no go, I even bought a new battery and still a no go. Then they say it could be the solenoid so I got a new one from yamaha and still a no go. When I press start alls i hear is a click noise from the solenoid it sounds like and its brand new. I also heard it could be the starter is there any certain kind of starter to get for this ATV? I had a neighbor friend pull start it today it ran fine, been driving it for about a hour then the oil temp light and reverse light both came on. I know when the oil temp light comes on you need to turn off the engine and let it cool but what would make the reverse light come on as well. I turned it off then i turned the key switch to on and the lights were off so i turned on the headlights and they wouldnt turn on.
