    2005 sportsman 500 ho Carb Runs great down low but if held at 3000 rpm it sputters and sounds like it’s hitting the rev limiter but when given more gas picks right up and runs great up top. Carb was cleaned new fuel filter and intake boot, but hasn’t really helped the issue. Any ideas?

    Hey guys. I’m over here racking my brain trying to figure this out. A few days ago my Atv started sputtering and would only run with the choke out. So I cleaned out the carb and decided to order a rebuild kit. Well the Atv idles perfect, but if I give it much throttle at all it boggs down...

    Hey guys, I inherited a 2008 Trailblazer 330 from a family member that hasn't been used in two years. My son and I decided to take it on as a project and cleaned it up and replaced the carb, oil, filter, battery and spark plugs to see if we could get it working. It turns over but will not...

    Hey guys I have a 2000 scrambler 500 4x4 when I got it it would only run on choke. I got a new carb because I dont know anything about fixing or setting a carb.

    My carb is leaking from the bowl overflow nipple. I’ve checked everything I have seen recommended in this site and have not solved the problem. Rebuilt the carb, adjusted the float. Checked needle seat. I then replaced the carb and fuel pump twice. Still can’t stop the leak. I bought it...

    Our 03 sportsman 400 was left untouched for some time so we took it to a local repair shop to get it back in working order. When we got it back we drove it not more than 5 miles before it started smoking, turns out whoever worked on it forgot to put oil back in it. The piston and rings burned up...

    Okay I know its a carb or spark plug issue? Am I correct? The four wheeler will bog a little bit, then go but it’s a slow takeoff and low power from 20-30 mph, it’s got equal to less power than my king quad 450, what in the carb would cause this? Thank you all in advance, you have all been a...

    Hi, I have a sportsman 90. When starting cold with choke it is starts and dies unless I give it a little throttle. When started it will die at idle without a little throttle. After I run for 5 to 10 minutes it starts fine and idles will. I inspected the carb recently and cleaned all holes with...

    I just purchased a 07 sportsman 450 that is having carburetor issues. When I started going through the carb I found that the previous owner had glued a hardware bolt into a hole located on the right side as you can see in the image. I got the bolt out and it looks like it should be just a...

    So the original Carb was lost when I bought the quad, so I went to my local store (JMC) and they advised me that the Mikuni Round Slide VM Series Carburetor 30mm Bore VM30-83, was the direct replacement for that machine..... I bought 2. (I have two of these second one still needs work) Well the...

    Newbie here with a question. My 330 would not start, starter fluid/charger jump had it run for 20 sec.

    I've been working on getting my 2004 atp 500 running right. I'm almost there but still have a problem with the thing running lean. It starts easily (when choked) but misses and backfires when revved up. Hard to get it to idle when warmed up with no choke. I've gone over it several times and...
