2007 Yamaha Venture Multi Purpose Question

6 posts in this topic

My wife bought this new/used sled this summer. I just went out to take my kids for a ride and it will turn over for a little then the battery appears to weaken to the point that it will not start. Does anyone know about this sled I looked for a pull cord with no luck I pulled it into my heated garage to see if a couple of hours of warmth will fix the problem. I do not have the manual, so I am running blind. My last sled was a 1973 TNT! Were is the battery?

Sounds to me like it needs to have the battery charged or maybe replaced. Don't overdo it when recharging those small batteries. Maximum of 2 amps or less is all I would hit it with. Also check the water level in it and be sure it is over the plates.

How do I find the battery on those I lifted the hood and took off both side panels with no luck. Any suggestions. I did warm it up for an hour and it started no problem.

Isn't that year Venture a four stroke? They don't have pull ropes. I haven't ridden a Venture, but the Yamaha 4 strokes have the battery under the air box in front of the motor. You will have to remove the airbox and a metal bracket to get at the battery. If it hasn't been ridden for a while, those sleds need a good battery to start with the temps we have been having.

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
