Hi All,

I am new to this site...thanks for any advice.

I have an older '96 Sportsman 400 (2 stroke) and recently I have had a couple problems I am trying to fix...

1) sitting at rest, the carb overflows back into the airbox. Is this a needle seat issue or is this a float issue?

2) While working on the carb issue above I discovered my Key does not always shut off the engine. The slid on the handle bar ("off-run") ALSO does not work. Any suggestions on this issue??

Thx Gary from Colorado

If it flows the needle valve dosent work. But it sounds wierd that it flows in to airbox. Dont you have a overflow hose from the carb down in the frame?

I have the same issue today :) on the handlebar on/off. i open the handle and one wire was loose. Check there.
