Ok so it won't idle but when off idle it will come alive, I have put a new carb kit with all jets and fuel filter and it still wont idle and sometimes just setting there it will take off for a few seconds then come back down on the idle and die starting to run out of ideas, would the reeds have anything to do with this?

Did you mess with the air /fuel mixture screw? Possible air leak?Go from there.

When 2 strokes dont idle and the carb is set right , it maybe time for a top set.


you may want to check out your reed and intake boot also.

ok reeds look fine compression around 100 psi dry and 115 wet could I have had a intake leak on the oil line going into the intake boot seems like that wasn't real tight?

Thanks for the help guys, I figured it out with the carb spray. The bottom gasket on the motor had a split in it and low and behold by the time I found it our Polaris dealer was closed so I went to the local parts store and bought gasket paper cut my own gasket and it now runs like a champ so if anyone has a no idle problem and then the motor tries to runaway be lookin for lower engine gasket problems.
