1986 Suzuki LT-230S carb problem

2 posts in this topic

I got a 1986 suzuki 230lts it has been sputtering and spiting when you add a a little throttle so i took apart the crab to look for crap, i found not a speck of dirt. BUT i found that the pilot screw was messing a few parts, the washer and the o-ring. would that cause it to sputter when a little throttle is applied, it almost feels like the breaks are dragging when you give it a little throttle. thanks for any imput!

I would replace the missing parts and make sure all of the passages and jets are clear. I would also drain out any old gas and start with fresh fuel if you haven't already. I would also check for air leaks, make sure your air filter is clean, and make sure you have good spark. Get a repair manual, you will most likely need it.

      I need to know what I have and what tire really go on it, Mine has 24x11x10 on the back and 22x8x10 on the front and I need new tire but I don't think are the right size. Also I can't find the model number listed but it looks like a 250 quadrunner 2wd and I think it is a 1987 maybe, can anyone help me, also I it has a rich running sound and I put a carb diap in it and cleaned the carb. is there a jet needing replaced?
