26  General / Tech Corner / 2001 Warrior with Weak Spark on: October 05, 2006, 08:09:37 AM
Hi all,

I have 2001 Yamaha Warrior that will run when bumped or jumped with hi amperage boost.  I replaced the pickup coil in the stator assembly 2 years ago and again 2 weeks ago.  I thought it was the same problem. 

I checked the resistance on the primary and secondary of the ignition coil and it was a little out of spec so I bought a new one.  No improvement.  I compare my Warrior's spark to that of a Raptor 350 with same engine and there is a DEFINITE difference.  The raptor is bright in comparison.  I tried the spark plug cap from the Raptor.  No difference.

Local dealer told me the CDI pack doesn't usually get "weak" rather it either works or doesn't.

Any ideas on what to check next? 

Thanks,

Dave/Yamahonda41

Other good places to ride in North GA, NC:

Lake Burton is good but some is very difficult and dangerous for the less than skilled rider.

Locust Stake near Toccoa, GA is pretty good but had lots of big ruts last year.

A very good place is in Cullowhee, NC - Wayahutta.  Well maintained trails with something for everyone.  Been there twice and would go again.

Too bad FL does not have OHV programs like other states.  Most of them you park and pay either $5 or $10 for the day and ride maintained trails!

Good luck & be safe!

We just spent 3 nights at Durhamtown May 24-26th.  Pros and Cons:

Pros:  Lots of one-way trails which was nice.  Some fast trails with jumps.  Good for whole family from Pee Wees up through any skill level. 

Several pretty good MX tracks.  One strictly quad track with a HUGE tabletop jump.  Probably over 60 feet from takeoff to landing end and about 15 to 20 feet high Shocked

Pro shop on sight for plugs, oil, cables, helmets, boots, jerseys, etc.

They maintain the trails with bull dozers and tractors.

Cons: Expensive.  Cost me and the wife and 2 kids about $200 for 3 days riding. 
The accomodations were way expensive.  We were charged $65/night for a shed with "beds, sink, toilet, and shower."  (Did have DirectTV???)  I will try and attach some pics.

They were not very lenient with changes.  My wife was NOT happy with our "shed" and when I asked about upgrading to a larger "cottage" for $120/night I was told I would not be refunded the $65 x3 nights I already paid Huh  This was stupid.  The other place sat empty while we were there.

They had no rain for a while so it was hard packed clay and very dusty.

Limited food onsite during week.  Weekends ok.

Would I go back?  Probably not because of cost.

Thanks guys I will take a look.  
30  General / Tech Corner / Warrior Parking Brake block off on: May 05, 2005, 07:39:12 PM
My parking brake has never worked since I had the 2000 Warrior.  I decided to buy a block off plate and remove the assembly and cable.  

Problem is now there is a RPM limit switch so you cant rev if the parking brake is set.  Anyone have a good solution to eliminating the switch?  The clutch perch is made such that you cant just remove the switch.  I think I may have a problem as it started ok for a few minutes but now I cant get it started.

Any help appreciated.

Good idea Sky.  I ended up with only 14 in my group.  Part of that I'm sure is people did not know me or where I would be in the pit before the ride.  I will sign up again to lead if I can make the next ride.  

I like leading - less dust!!! Grin

This story rated G for General Audiences.

I got to see a papa bear (aka Da-Mtg-Man) protecting his cubs!

There we were on Friday, during the warmup for Rodman IV, at least five miles deep into the dark forest when we stopped at a nice little playground complete with a jump and everything for the big bears and a nice little trail up a hill and around a tree for the little bears.  Well after a little while one of two jack-a$$es who were far far from home (Michigan) thought that just because they were there first that the little bears were going the wrong direction.  

Papa bear didn't do anything the first time or even the second.  On the third time papa bear stopped the jack-a$$ and politely asked him if he didn't think he was endangering the lives of the little bears.  To everyone's amazement the jack-a$$ told papa bear the wrong answer to his question about riding directions and tried to continue down the wrong path! Shocked Shocked Shocked

Papa bear, now nose to nose with the jack-a$$ explained to him what would happen to his head if he still insisted on going the wrong direction Wink.  

Now this was either the bravest or dumbest jack-a$$ I have ever seen.  He still did not take papa bear's advice.  By now the jack-a$$ and papa bear had gotten the full attention of an angry pack of wolves that quickly surrounded papa bear and the jack-a$$.  I think this was about the time that the 2nd jack-a$$ came over with a little old T-handle in his and and told the 1st jack-a$$ that he did not think that maybe it was such a good idea to ride in that direction while surrounded by papa bear and an angry pack of at least a  dozen wolves Wink  

Finally the 1st jack-a$$ saw the err in his directions and decided that maybe the direction the little bears were riding was good after all.  That made all the difference in the world and by the time papa bear and his cubs and the angry pack of wolves were leaving I think I saw papa bear shaking hands with the two jack-a$$es right before we headed on down the trail.  And everyone lived to ride another day.

The End.

Just a thought, we might want to have different location each time.  Too much of a good thing at Rodman could lead to problems.  I say we should spread it around between Rodman, Scrub and anywhere else there is room for that many trucks/trailers.
36  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman IV Experiences on: January 23, 2005, 01:35:36 PM
Man what a ride!  I only had 14 in my group but made good time. 59.6 miles round trip with a 15.7mph moving average.  I had a great time riding you you guys.  Thanks Dreth & T2Raptor for letting me have a taste of what a real sport quad will do!  Definitely more than I can handle at my age Shocked

Our timing was great.  We got rained on a little bit just South of Eureka Dam but were sitting at 88 Store for the worst of it then man what great riding conditions after the rain.  Too bad Lake Delancy to Rodman did not get any.  Glad I was leading!!!

Looking forward to the next one.  Dreth & T2, I'll have the Warrior rebuilt and a new clutch by then so maybe I can pick the pace up some!
37  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman Dam Trail Ride IV on: January 20, 2005, 08:28:51 AM
Yee haw!!! We got everything lined up to leave Friday morning.  See ya'll around noon or a little after.
38  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman Dam Trail Ride IV on: January 20, 2005, 06:30:34 AM
We will be covering a lot of ONF on this ride.  I plan on taking the West route with my group and Grizz is heading East.  I will definitely slow down a little and watch out for this kid.

We got some straps to drag ole Fritz back with? Grin
39  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman IV GPS on: January 20, 2005, 05:21:01 AM
I really don't know Eric.  It depends on how many times we stop.  If we can average 15mph it should only take 2 hours to get there.  1 hour for food/fuel 2 hours back and we should be back between 2 and 3pm.

Never works that way but who knows?

You are welcome to ride with us.  My buddy has a 28' trailer that has CD Roma's advertising.  Pulling with a Chevy 4 door duelly.  I'm on a blue Warrior.  

See you there.

I don't know what everyone is going to do but I am taking my group of sport quads at a moderate pace to the West and then back either by Lake Delancey or all the way East of 19 if we have enough time and everyone is doing good.  So far there are 6 in my group.  

The route to the West is about 28 miles.  The East route is about 23 miles.  I think Grizz is going to lead his group East on the 4x4 quads.  Hopefully we will get to 88 Store at the same time.

I have never ridden this route.  Hopefully we will not run into too many closed trails.

41  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman IV GPS on: January 18, 2005, 06:22:37 PM
I just emailed it to you Moose.

42  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman Dam Trail Ride IV on: January 18, 2005, 01:01:31 PM
I would definitely bring goggles and dust masks.  It will absolutely be dusty!

Also, I don't know if I would ride double that far but I'm old.

Welcome to the site.  I am from Clayton, GA, been in St. Pete since 1981.  See you there.
43  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman IV GPS on: January 18, 2005, 10:26:16 AM
That is it.  I will email the files to you.  I made a couple changes but the map looks fine.

Thanks

This is a copy of my post in the Rodman IV GPS thread...

I have created 3 routes in Garmin Mapsource version 6.5.  One heads South from the pit and then West toward Tabacco Patch then South toward Eureka Dam crossing Hwy 316 then South about 3 miles and then East NE to 88 Store. This route is named Rodman WEST to 88.  

The 2nd is named Rodman EAST to 88 and as the name suggests heads South from the pit and then East and SE across Hwy 19 then South and back SW across Hwy 19 to the West to the 88 Store.

The 3rd route goes from a waypoint called Lake D Split and heads North back to the pit by way of Lake Delance campground.  

At this point I plan on taking my group of sport quads WEST at 9am from the pit.  Anyone wanting to go is welcome.  I believe Grizz is going to lead a group of 4x4s on the EAST route.  This route is about 5 miles shorter so hopefully we will get to the 88 store about the same time.

The Lake D Split route is for anyone who wishes to take a shortcut back to Rodman instead of going all the way around to the East.  I will most likely go this way back depending on time.

This is posted on both the Rodman IV GPS thread and on the main Rodman ride thread so everyone can see it.  Chris505 can you please post the map with the routes on both threads?

Anyone who wants the GPS data I have it saved in several formats.  Not sure if it will work with other than Garmin, maybe the GPX (GPS Exchange Format) will.  Send me an email with the version of Mapsource you are using.  The latest is v6.5 which uses .gdb v2.0 files.  

My email is: dkedward@tampabay.rr.com

Have fun!!!

Either that or just bring some oil to dump in then do a few whoops to mix thoroughly!!! Grin
47  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Please read this if you are going to Rodman! on: January 17, 2005, 05:03:18 PM
Look at some of the ATV videos on the internet if you want to see a lack of common sense!!! Shocked
48  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman Dam Trail Ride IV on: January 16, 2005, 08:40:52 PM
I would be surprised if they don't.  That's even better.  Have both pumps going at the same time.  People who don't normally use 93 can use it if no one else is.  Might even make them go a little faster!!!
49  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman Dam Trail Ride IV on: January 16, 2005, 07:20:45 PM
Just a thought about fueling up at 88 store.  To speed up the process if everyone buying gas would bring some one dollar bills and just keep the pump going instead of each person pumping then paying, etc. it would save a lot of time.

Just round up and and give the extra to 88 Store for a tip. For example, if you take $2.50 in gas pitch 3 bucks in and move on...

Chris,

That is what I am going to do.  Grizz sent me a .msi file from Topo 24k that I could not use.  I sent him one of my .gdb files and am waiting for him to send me one.  When I get the track I will sort through the data and save the waypoints that we need and number them 881, 882, etc.  We can then build a route with this data and even other brand GPS users can input the waypoints directly to create their routes.

Thanks,

Dave
