Hi all

Have a 1995 yamaha timberwolf 250 that won't start. When I bought it, it turned over slow but would not start. Installed new batter and still turns over slow. Spent $200 on a new starter only to have the same result. Any ideas? It turns over but real slow. There is no back-up starting method so I am kind of stuck. My $800 bargain is not turning out so well! Thanks for all the help.

I Have a 1995 kodiak and it has always turned over rather slow, but does start. It should fire on the first couple revolutions.

The first thing you need to do is find out if its fuel or spark related. Pull the plug wire off and stick a screw driver in the end of the plug wire and hold it close to the engine case while some one else turns it over and check for spark. Pull the plug and make sure the electrode isnt burned off, a plug only cost a couple bucks so just go ahead and replace it while its out.

Did you crank the motor over with the plug removed??? Or if the motor as water oil or any thing else in the cylinder that would make the compression higher, maybe even a compression test would be a good place to start. I hope this helps.

Check the starter clutch assy;if it is "going south" it will drag.

Providing that nothing else is causing the slow turn overs;you know,gas-bound,mechanical problems,bad ground,etc.............
