NOTICE
This manual was written by the Yamaha Motor Company primarily for use by Yamaha
dealers and their qualified mechanics. It is
not possible to put an entire mechanic’s
education into one manual, so it is assumed
that persons using this book to perform
maintenance and repairs on Yamaha snowmobiles have a basic understanding of the
mechanical concepts and procedures inherent in snowmobile repair. Without such
knowledge, attempted repairs or service to
this model may render it unfit to use and/or
unsafe.
Yamaha Motor Company, Ltd. is continually
striving to improve all models manufactured by Yamaha. Modifications and significant changes in specifications or procedures
will be forwarded to all Authorized Yamaha
dealers and will, where applicable, appear in
future editions of this manual.

HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
Particularly important information is distinguished in this manual by the following
notations:
The Safety Alert Symbol means ATTENTION! BE ALERT!
YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED!
Failure to follow WARNING instructions
could result in severe injury or death to the
snowmobile operator, a bystander, or a person inspecting or repairing the snowmobile.
CAUTION:
A CAUTION indicates special precautions
that must be taken to avoid damage to the
snowmobile.
NOTE:
A NOTE provides key information that can
make procedures easier or clearer.
MANUAL FORMAT
All of the procedures in this manual are organized in a sequential, step-by-step format.
The information has been compiled to provide the mechanic with an easy to read,
handy reference that contains comprehensive explanations of all inspection, repair,
assembly, and disassembly operations.
If this revised format, the condition of a
faulty component will precede an arrow
symbol and the course of action required to
correct the problem will follow the symbol,
e.g.,
D Bearings
Pitting /Damage ! Replace.
EXPLODED DIAGRAM
Each chapter provides exploded diagrams
before each disassembly section to facilitate
correct disassembly and assembly procedures.

DRIVE V-BELT
When installing the new V-belt, make sure
that it is positioned within the specified distances 1 from the edge of the secondary
sheave.
If not, the clutch engagement speed will be
changed. The machine may move unexpectedly when the engine is started.
Adjust the V-belt position by removing or
adding a spacer 2 on each adjusting bolt.
For this adjustment, consult a Yamaha dealer or another qualified mechanic.
CAUTION:
As the V-belt wears, adjustment may be
necessary. To ensure proper clutch performance, the V-belt position should be adjusted by adding a spacer on each adjusting
bolt when the V-belt position reaches below
the edge.
For this adjustment, consult a Yamaha dealer or another qualified mechanic.
New belt width:
35.0 mm (1.38 in) (500)

The clutch may require tuning depending
upon the area of operation and desired handling characteristics. The clutch can be
tuned by changing engagement and shifting
speed. Clutch engagement speed is defined
as the engine speed where the machine first
begins to move from a complete stop.
Shifting speed is when the machine has
been started at full-throttle from a dead stop
and has travelled 200 X 300 m (650 X 1,000
ft).
Normally, when a machine reaches shifting
speed, the vehicle speed increases but the
engine speed remains nearly constant. Under unfavorable conditions (wet snow, icy
snow, hills, or rough terrain), however, engine speed may decrease after the shifting
speed has been reached.

C Bad condition
D Clutch shifting speed

GEAR SELECTION
GEAR SELECTION
The reduction ratio of the driven gear to the
drive gear must be set according to the snow
conditions. If there are many rough surfaces
or unfavorable snow conditions, the
drive/driven gear ratio should be increased.
If the surfaces are fairly smooth or better
snow conditions exist, decrease the ratio.
Gear ratio chart
The following drive and driven gears and
chains are available as options. The figures
in the upper lines represent the drive/driven
gear ratios, while the number on the following line, followed by an “L”, designates the
number of chain links.
NOTE:
Do not set the gearing to any of the indicated
(x) settings.

This shock absorber contains highly compressed nitrogen gas. Before handling the
shock absorber read and make sure that you
understand the following information. The
manufacturer cannot be held responsible
for property damage or personal injury that
may result from improper handling.
D Do not tamper or attempt to open the gas
chamber.
D Do not subject the shock absorber to an
open flame or any other source of high
heat. This may cause the unit to explode
due to excessive gas pressure.
D Do not deform or damage the gas chamber in any way. Gas chamber damage will
result in poor damping performance.

1. Measure:
S Piston-to-cylinder clearance
Measurement steps:
1st step:
S Measure the cylinder bore “C” with a
cylinder bore gauge 1 .
NOTE:
Measure the cylinder bore “C” parallel to,
and at right angles to the crankshaft. Then
find the average of the measurements.

2nd step:
S Measure the piston skirt diameter “P”
with a micrometer from distance a .

700: 15 mm (0.59 in)
from the piston bottom edge.

(2.7727 X 2.7728 in)
S If out of specification, replace piston
and piston rings as a set.
3rd step:
S Calculate the piston-to-cylinder clearance with the following formula:
Piston-to-cylinder clearance =
Cylinder bore “C” –
Piston skirt diameter “P”
S If out of specification, rebore or replace
cylinder, and replace piston and piston
rings as a set.
Piston-to-cylinder clearance:
500: 0.095 X 0.100 mm

(0.878 ± 0.080 in)
700
13.3 ± 2.0 mm
(0.524 ± 0.080 in)
Measurement and adjustment steps:
S Hold the carburetor in an upside down
position.
S Measure the distance between the carburetor body and top of the floats.
NOTE:
The float arm should be resting on the valve,
but not compressing the needle valve spring.
S If the float height is not within specification, inspect the valve seat and needle
valve.
S If either is worn, replace them both.
S If both are fine, adjust the float height
by bending the float arm tang 1 on the
float.
S Recheck the float height.
