Question about ATVs
Posted by Anonymous on
Adjust your idle speed up a bit. There will be a small adjustment screw on the carburetor, turn it clockwise a bit until the idle speed is good. If that does not work you could have a plugged idle circuit passage.

SOURCE: quad bike keeps cutting out
ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Drain the carburetor. There may be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like a vacumn leak check bse of carb, (Tighten) check any and all hoses comming off the carb. and at there destinations. It could also be a warped cyclinder head., specialyy with 2 cycle engines. Have a dealer or motorcycle shop check it out.

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the chain/bar is properly lubricated, sharpened, and tension adjusted. If no help, turn the H jet screw CCW a little so that the engine 4-strokes at speed unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This will give the most power and least heat. Hope this helps!
