Default 1989 yamaha warrior

Just picked this up on the cheap. It does run but smokes white smoke lightly on idle, heavy while driving. No brakes (they are there, just don't work). All plastic is there and so is the seat,but very faded. Tires leak, battery is junk, pull start cord is missing.

That being said, we did jump start it and I drove it for 5 minutes or so, reverse works. Part of the problem is it has been sitting for two years so I'm sure the gas is junk. The kid said the previous owner filled the oil res. to the top and then ran it (possible smoke cause?).

I really know nothing about quads (slightly more about jeeps), what have I gotten myself into? I had a '86 250R 3 wheeler back when I was 16 but that was 15 years ago. I was told it would be a good idea to invest in a clymer repair manual to get started. This is gonna be to just putz around in the fields (hence buying it cheap).

Any help is appreciated.

or give it to me for free

I would get the manual, they are like 20.00. that's the first thing I do when I buy a four wheeler. Change all fluids, change the plug, The rear brakes can be adjusted from the rear master cylinder, behind your right leg is where it should be. Unscrew the bolt and then turn the long shaft which ever way you need to go.

If you had a manual you would know what the hell I was talking about.LOL

any questions email me I can alway scan some pages out of mine and send to you.
