Your Yamaha 440ss only runs with choke on?

Clean your carburetor's main circuit. Your carburetor contains two "circuits." One is the main circuit, and it puts gas into the engine with the "choke" off. The other is the enrichment circuit, which puts more gas into the engine because a cold engine needs a richer fuel/air mixture than a warm one. If your engine only runs with the choke on, that means no gas is coming in via the main circuit, which means it's clogged. Clean that out good and it should fix the problem.

What is shreddin narr or shreddin some narr slang words?

The word your looking for is "gnar" or "gnarly". It comes from a snowboarding video self titled as GNAR which was made by Robb Gaffney in memory of skier Shane McConkey. It stands for Gaffneys Numerical Assessment of Radness. The idea behind the video was that people were taking snowsports too seriously and so to make fun of those people, Shane McConkey, Robb Gaffney's good friend would pretend he was really obsessed with being better than everyone. He and Shane wrote a book called "squawliwood" named after his home mountain of squaw and gave certain runs and tricks a certain number of points. So a particularly difficult run would be a gnarly one.Now shredding gnarly means you did something perfectly, really cool or just plain crazy. For those of you who are in to doing really cool but stupid stuff. Check out GNAR and try to get a game going on your mountain

ANSWER:

To go big, never stop or give up; accept the reality that anything is possible, and everything can be accomplished if you set your mind to it. OR, to snowboard to one's fullest potential on difficult or challenging terrain.

What is gas oil mixture for Rupp snowmobile?

Wow that is an old sled, I would start at 32/1 on that model making sure it smokes at an idle.Sorry about that these are the proper ratios I went and looked them all in my books. If there is a Rupp engine 20:1, if it has a Kohler engine the ratio is 40:1, or if it has an Xenoah engine the ratio is 30:1. This should be what you need.

Years ago when the snowmobiles were new, 2 stroke oil was not a "special" type oil. The way 2 stroke gas/oil was mixed was to dump a qt of 30wt automotive engine oil into 5 gallons of gas. In that time period that was the recommended 20:1 ratio

With modern oils made specifically for 2 strokes.....many Rupp riders are using a 40:1 ratio in all their sleds. I still run mine at 32:1 to insure a lot of lube beings my sleds are not in any competition.

Even though my shelves are full of vintage Rupp Parts for snowmobiles and minibikes here at Ruppparts.com...I don't want to damage any engines with a lack of oil

What are steps to align clutch after motor swap on skidoo snowmobile?

you need to get a clutch alignment tool for the specific brand and set up you are using, it is usually a tool that drops over your primary clutch and slide just past the inner edge of the secondary clutch. (sort of looks like a flat "Z" shape hard to explain) Most manufactures want there engines to be twisted towards the front left shock (sitting on the machine) so that when the engine accelerates the clutches line up and the belt is straight. You will also need to measure the center to center distance as in the center of the primary clutch to the secondary clutch the is a spec for this for each manufacture. If your not exploding drive belts all the time the clutches are probably aligned in an acceptable way. If you are going through a lot of belts you should check the condition of your clutch for wear and if both are in good condition then do the alignment procedures.

What is the crankcase oil capacity for a 1980 Yamaha Enticer snowmobile?

I have an 1980 Yamaha Enticer 250 (ET250D). Here's what the sticker under the hoods says...

The oil capacity for the "Chain Case" is 15.21 oz (or 450 cc).

If you are talking about the engine crankcase, there is no oil in the crankcase of a two-stroke engine. It is lubricated by the oil that is mixed into the gas.

I am not sure what weight oil to use. The dealer told me to use Yamaha Chain Case Oil (but he didn't know the weight of the oil).

Hope this helps!

How do you remove the chain case from a 1988 Polaris Snowmobile?

If I remember correctly, the exhaust had to come off first. Then remove the bolts on the cover (probably 3/8 or 7/16 head). Since you haven't mentioned if it has reverse gear, I'll assume it doesn't. Inside you'll find a chain/gear set and a tensioner. Back off the tensioner bolt, then remove the bolt holding the lower gear and the nut or bolt on the smaller upper gear. The chain/gears should now come off as a unit. With those off you should be able to remove the large bolts holding the chaincase housing and slide the whole thing off both shafts.

It's a good idea to take pictures of the steps during disassembly, to have a reference for when you put it all back together. If the sled has reverse, the steps are basically the same with the exception of a linkage, an ilder gear and a spring-loaded second gear on the driveshaft to remove. This is where the pictures come in real handy.

Do snowmobiles run on gas?

Yes snowmobiles run on gas. There might be a suggested octane the manufacture recommends that you put in the sled, you will find this if you look around where the gas cap is. But you can run any kind of gas in your sled, the only thing is if you run less octane then your supposed to it might effect the performance a little but not a lot. You will just loose a little power.
