Hello everyone... New to the forum, but have had this ATV since it was new.

The bike sat for a couple years and fell victim to the ethanol in the gas. The throttle valve and shaft were completely locked up and nothing would free them. I bought a replacement carb for it and installed it along with new plugs, new fluids, and plenty of other things.

Here's my issue...

It starts fine with a little choke... but will not stay idling with the choke off,.. no matter how high I turn the idle screw. Any thoughts?

Still could be crap in the fuel line? worth replacing the line and filter if you haven't already and cleaning out the carbie again only a 20 minute job

Thanks for the welcome Bruce.

Trump:
Replaced the fuel lines at the same time. Even had to replace the fuel filter/outlet and grommet on the tank because the fuel had eaten through the seal between the fitting and the screen. Brand new carb, so not much to do there I thought.







Has anyone else had issues with a new carb being way out of adjustment?
