Page 36

BRAKE (See page 8-17 ~ 8-19 for more details... ) Test the brake at slow speed when starting out to make sure it is working properly... If the brake does not provide proper braking performance, inspect the brake for wear...

Page 37

Do not operate the machine if you find damage to the drive track, or misadjustment... Drive track damage and/or failure could result in loss of braking ability and machine control, which could cause an accident...

Page 38

CAUTION: Be sure to ride on the fresh snow frequently to avoid rapid wear of slide runner when operating on ice or hard packed snow...

Page 39

SERVICE TOOLS AND SPARE PARTS It is a good practice to carry service tools and spare parts with your machine so that minor repairs can be done by yourself... The following should be carried with you (for BR250T/ET410TR) or in the luggage box (for VK540E)... Tool kit Flashlight Roll of plastic tape Steel wire Tow rope Emergency starter rope In addition to these, it is advisable to have the following spare parts: Drive belt Light bulbs Spark plugs When you start out for a long distance trip, extra fuel and oil should be carried...

Page 40

Page 41

ET410TR: Pull slowly on the recoil starter until it is engaged, then pull it briskly... After the engine starts, put the starter lever (choke) in the Half-open position... Warm up the engine until it does not run roughly or begin to stall when the starter lever is returned to the Close position...

Page 42

EMERGENCY ENGINE STARTING (BR250T/ET410TR) If the recoil starter system should fail, take the emergency starter rope out of the tool kit box and proceed as follows...

Page 43

BREAK-IN There is never a more important period in the life of your machine than the Break-In period... For the first 10 hours, approximately 200 km (125 mi), do not put an excessive load on the engine... Avoid prolonged full throttle operation... Also avoid lugging the engine, such as laborious operation in wet snow... If any abnormal condition is noticed, such as excessive vibration or noise, consult a Yamaha dealer...

Page 44

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR SNOWMOBILE A snowmobile is a rider active vehicle, and your riding position and your balance are the two basic factors of maneuvering your snowmobile... Riding your snowmobile requires skills acquired through practice over a period of time... Take the time to learn the basic techniques well before attempting more difficult maneuvers... Riding your new snowmobile can be a very enjoyable activity, providing you with hours of pleasure... But it is essential to familiarize yourself with the operation of the snowmobile to achieve the skill necessary to enjoy riding safely... Before you begin to ride, be sure you have read this Owners Manual completely and understand the operation of the controls... Pay particular attention to the safety information on page 3-1 ~ 3-3... Please read all warning and caution labels on your snow- mobile... Also read the Snowmobilers Safety Handbook originally supplied with your machine...

Page 45

TURNING For most snow surfaces, body English is the key to turning... As you approach a curve, slow down and begin to turn the handlebars in the desired direction... As you do so, put your weight on the running board to the inside of the turn and lean your upper body into the turn... This procedure should be practiced at slow speed many times in a large flat area with no obstacles... Once you have learned this technique, you should be able to perform it at higher speeds or in tighter curves... Lean more as the turn gets sharper or is made at higher speeds...

Page 46

RIDING UPHILL You should practice first on gentle slopes... Try more difficult climbs only after you have developed your skill... As you approach a hill, accelerate before you start the climb, and then reduce the throttle opening to prevent track slippage... It is also important to keep your weight on the uphill side at all times... On climbs straight up the hill this can be accom- plished by leaning forward and, on steeper inclines, stand- ing on the running boards and leaning forward over the handlebars... (Also see CROSSING A SLOPE... ) Slow down as you reach the crest of the hill, and be prepared to react to obstacles, sharp drops, or other people or vehicles which may be on the other side... If you are unable to continue up a hill, do not spin the track... Stop the engine and set the parking brake... Then pull the rear of the snowmobile around to point the machine back down the hill... Do not get on the downhill side of the machine... When the snowmobile is pointed downhill, re- start the engine, release the parking brake, and descend the hill...

Page 47

Crossing the face of a slope (side hill) requires you to properly position your weight to maintain proper balance... As you travel across the slope, lean your body to position your weight towards the uphill side... A recommended riding position is to kneel with the knee of the downhill leg on the seat and the foot of the uphill leg on the running board... This position will make it easier for you to shift your body weight as needed... Snow and ice are slippery, so be prepared for the possibil- ity that your snow-mobile could begin to slip sideways on the slope... If this happens, steer in the direction of the slide if there are no obstacles in your path... As you regain proper balance, gradually steer again in the direction you wish to travel... If your snowmobile starts to tip, steer down the hill to regain balance...

Page 48

Other conditions that should be avoided for the sake of drive track and slide runner life are: 1... Glare ice surfaces 2... Snow mixed with a lot of dirt and sand All the above conditions have one thing in common in regard to drive track and slide runners; little or no lubricat- ing ability... Drive track and all slide rail systems require lubrication (snow or water) between the plastic runners and the metal track inserts... In the absence of lubrication, the plastic runners will rapidly wear and in severe cases, literally melt away, and the drive track will be subjected to damage and/or failure... Also, traction aids such as studs, cleats etc... , may cause further track damage and/or failure...

Page 49

Track tension During initial break-in, the new drive track will tend to stretch quickly as the track settles... Be sure to correct the track tension and alignment fre- quently... (See pages 8-23 ~ 8-26 for adjustment proce- dures... ) A loose track can slip (ratchet), derail or catch on suspension parts causing severe damage... Do not over- tighten the drive track, otherwise it may increase the friction between the track and the slide runners, resulting in the rapid wear of both components... Also, this may put an excessive load on the suspension components, resulting in component failure...

Page 50

Studded track In general, track life will be shortened when studs are installed... Drilling stud holes into the drive track will cut the internal fibers, which weakens the track... Avoid spinning the drive track... Studs may catch on an object and pull out of the track, leaving tears and damage around the already weakened area... To minimize possible damage, consult your stud manufacturer for installation and stud pattern recommendations... Yamaha does not recommend track studding...

Page 52

carburetors... Otherwise, the vibration and bumps from the road surface could make it possible for fuel to flow through the carburetor into the crankcase... This can result in hydrostatic lock, a condition where the engine cannot rotate because of fuel accumulated in the en- gine... Severe engine damage can result from hydro- static lock... When possible, the fuel tank should be empty during transportation, especially if the trip will be 30 minutes or longer...

Page 53

MAINTENANCE CHART Regular maintenance is most important for best performance and safe operation...

Page 54

It is recommended that these items be serviced by a Yamaha dealer... Apply initial 1 month or 400 km (250 mi, 20 hr)

Page 55

Inspect sheaves for wear/ damage... Inspect weights/rollers and bushings for wear-for primary... Inspect ramp shoes/bushings for wear-for secondary... Replace if necessary...

Page 56

NOTE: If you do not have a torque wrench available during a service operation requiring one, take your machine to a Yamaha dealer to check the torque settings and adjust them if necessary...

Page 57

SPARK PLUG INSPECTION The spark plug is an important engine component and is easy to inspect... The condition of the spark plug can indicate something of the condition of the engine... Check the coloration on the white porcelain insulator around the center electrode... The ideal coloration at this point is a medium to a light tan color for a machine that is being ridden normally... If a spark plug shows a distinctly different color, there could be something wrong with the engine... For example, a very white center electrode porcelain color could indicate an intake track air leak or carburetion problem for that cylinder... Do not attempt to diagnose such problems yourself... Instead, take the machine to your Yamaha dealer... You should periodically remove and in- spect the spark plug because heat and deposits will cause any spark plug to slowly break down and erode... Consult your dealer before changing to a different type of spark plug...

Page 58

When installing the plug, always clean the gasket surface... Wipe off any grime from the threads and torque the spark plug properly...

Page 59

1... Loosen the adjuster locknut... 2... Turn the adjuster in or out until proper throttle lever free

Page 60

Under some operating conditions the carburator setting may have to be changed due to air temperature changes, elevation changes, use of alcohol oxygenated fuels, etc... and should be done by an authorized Yamaha dealer...

Page 61

Never remove the drain plug or the float chamber while the engine is hot... Fuel will flow out from the float chamber which could ignite and cause injury...

Page 62

2... Pinch the fuel hose to prevent fuel flowing... 3... Remove the drain plug and install the proper main jet... 4... Assemble by reversing the removal steps...

Page 63

HIGH ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENTS Operating at high altitude reduces the performance of a gasoline engine, about 3% for every 305 m (1000 ft) of elevation... This is because there is less air as altitude increases... Less air means less oxygen available for com- bustion... Your snowmobile can be adjusted to overcome most of the problems found in high altitude riding... Carburetor adjust- ments are the most important... Less air at high altitude makes the fuel/air ratio too rich, which can cause poor performance... Common problems are hard starting, bog- ging, and plug fouling... Follow the Main Jet Setting chart which is available at an authorized Yamaha dealer care- fully... Proper carburetion adjustments will correct the fuel/ air ratio...
