The CDI does nothing to your air/fuel ratio. You need to pull your spark plug and see what it looks like. Black= too rich, white= too lean, and tan is perfect. You can change jets inside your carb to add more fuel

How longs it been since you changed it? Maybe try getting a new one and doing a plug chop to get a true reading. Or at the very least wire brush the one you have and chop it. If its still black your getting too much fuel, go down in jet size.

If your plug is black, that's too rich not too lean.

air filter clean? good fuel? It's not getting enuf air for the fuel it's trying to burn.

maintenance and a new spark plug will prob help you a bunch!

we have to start at the beginning, but we can do it.

Another thing you might want to check for is intake air leaks, if you are pulling extra air from somewhere around the carb it will make the machine run lean. If there are leaks, they need to be fixed before doing anything else.

A carb rebuild kit couldn't hurt I suppose, but did you check for any air leaks around the intake boot? Did you do any plug chops? And if your running rich, I'd suggest a jet change if you cannot pinpoint any air leaks.

Yes, I completely agree with, RMH, you need to figure out exactly what the problem is before you start trying to fix it.

Hope you have around $175 to blow...thats approx. the rate I charge people for cleaning, tuning, and jetting a carb. I think you could iron this out if you just provided a little more information to us. Were you able to find any air leaks? Did you try a new plug chop? Adjust your f/a screw any? Move the clip on your needle? Also what jets are in it? Whats your elevation?

      i was given a 2003 Polaris trailblazer 250! I have tried 2 different carbs that I purchased off of eBay and they were garbage. Brilliantly Polaris discontinued the carb for the trailblazer, is their anything out there that is compatible??!

      I'm rebuilding the carb on my LT160. I'm having trouble getting the needle jet back in. The old one seemed to push in so it stuck up like a sixteenth of an inch inside the carb. I even tried putting the old one back in and same thing. They won't push in far enough so I can get the bleeder to screw back in. I'll post a diagram so you know what I'm talking about. It's numbers 16 and 20 on the diagram I'm having the issue with. Any help is appreciated.

      I have a 99 warrior that won't run off of choke. I've taken the carb off twice and cleaned it. Second time it sat in chem dip for an hour. Still won't run off of choke. I checked the intake manifold it ok and the ground on the reverse its ok also. I drained the fuel and put fresh in. If I run half throttle and push in the choke it will stay running. It backfires through the carb a little. I took off air cleaner thinking it might be clogged but it not. I have moved the fuel mix screw all over and still got nothing. I checked the gap on the new spark plug it was at .026. Gap is ok the plug was black like too much fuel but when I back it off I still can't run off of choke. Very frustrated please help
