Question Raptor 660 Wont start up

I purchased a used raptor privately from a guy who said it has not been used for 2/3 years. It started up on the first day and the exhaust was 'popping' like gun shots , when pressing the throttle and in gear it was just idling along and not responding to the throttle.

So - i tore it apart, cleaned the carbs ( carbs was clean anyway when opened and looked spotless , cleaned all the jets but left the fuel and air mixture screws how they was.

put the carb etc back together with a new battery and now when i try and start the bike, all i can hear is a clicking sound from the solenoid.

I have ordered a new solenoid, new oil filter, new oil, will put in fresh fuel and i will jump start with a car battery when all these are fitted.

new battery dont seem very strong and dont have a voltage tester , but i can jump start it with a car.

Should the above solutions fix this issue? or is there a different issue here?

any help would be highly appreciated

Definitely need to get a volt meter and see what the battery is reading.

hi,

So i need some light shed on this topic. I purchased it as a 2006 yamaha raptor 660r special edition. Now i know people say 660 is to 2005 only, but how can mine be 2006?
The quads log book or title is stated as a 2006 yamaha raptor 660 even when checked online through the government website. Did yamaha make a few special edition 660's in 2006?


Ok so its got a powercore bomb 4 exhaust system and a k&n air filter. Its all stock other than that.

First day it started, was ideling and the exhaust was just popping like gun shots which did not sound right. cleaned carbs, replaced battery and then its solenoid is clicking.

It's possible Yamaha made a 660 in late '05 and called it a '06. If so it is a rare bike.

When cleaning the carbs it's necessary to run a fine copper (speaker) wire thru all orifices in the carb bodies.

Your starting issue is most likely a low battery, indicated by the solenoid clicking. Even a new battery will require a few days on a low amp trickle/float charger.

I can't help you with jetting. Do you know what jets are in now?

Hi thanks for the reply.

So i jump started it today with the car and it turns over and starts very rough. But as soon as i let go off the start button it cuts out. I put fresh fuel in and also checks the fuel flow and its all fine.

I ordered a solenoid for a 660r raptor and the one they sent dont fit.

Im just going to take it to the garage on THursday and let them break my BANK as I just cant get it going :/

Whoa!! They need to pinpoint it more.

Ask if it has compression.
Ask if the timing and chain adjustment are good.
Ask if the valves and adjustment are good.

Any of these being bad could cause no start, but not necessary need a rebuild. They need to give you a reason "why" it needs a rebuild. A top end rebuild may cost at a shop may exceed the value of the bike. What was their total price? Was this a free estimate? You might get a second opinion.

If you have basic mechanic skills you can do a top end rebuild yourself. a "CP" 11:1 piston, cylinder bored, timing chain and gaskets should be under $500 USD. But a valve adjustment could be done the first time in a evening following the manual.

Yeah thats true but as soon as they jump started it and heard the clanking sound from the top part of the engine they shut it off and said they cant do anything unless it messes it up more.

They did not open the engine, and when i asked how much it'll cost to do a rebuild he said around 1000+

not sure about compression, value adjustment etc as they did not check it.

I have good mechanical skills with cars and bikes etc and could do it myself if i know what to buy for the bike and how to take it apart etc.

Could you please make a list of what ill need to test everything? valves , compression etc?? would be highly appreciated as this is my first quad bike

Ask if they have a "bore scope", this allows locking in the motor thru the spark plug hole. You need a firm price for repairs, not we'll open it and charge more money.

Real loud clanking could be bent or broken valves and prolly wouldn't run.
Or valve noise could need valve adjustment and/or a timing chain is loose.
A bad lower crank bearing could make a lot of noise.

I would say check the timing chain, then pull the head off and that should reveal what's wrong.

Approximate US prices, and in USD;
CP 11:1 piston, $225. There are cheaper but don't have the quality.
Factory Yamaha head and base gasket, $75.
Timing chain, $25-$30.
Bore and hone cylinder, $75-$100.
If the crank is bad, look for a new motor as all the bearings will have metal chips in them.
