Common Carb Issues

Just trying to get a list of common carb issues for a 2002 TB.

From what I was able to get from the parts guy from the dealer was the following.

- The needle and seat was a common part to wear out which hinders the carbs ability to prevent fuel from back-flowing out and getting into the air cleaner.

- The pilot jet. Mentioned that it can be cleaned but at $6 it is not a bad idea to replace it.

I am currently trying to resolve a car issue I have right now and would love the feedback.

Please let me know of any other common carb issues. Once I get a bunch of isses I can post the issues and cause.

04 predator 500 carburator problems

i have an 04 predator 500 with a pure polaris slip on exhaust and its been having problems, the airbox got too full with oil and the carb sucked it in so i cleanded the carb and it bogged on low throttle, i re-adjusted the carb and it ran better but not perfect, after taking the carb apart for the third time and putting it back together it ran perfect for about 5 minutes of riding then it just suddenly died and never started. is there any suggestions for me?
figured out the issue, i diddnt clean the diaphram when i tryd cleaning the carb, put a new k&n airfilter in it and it runs great now
