I just got my hands on this 87" Polaris Cyclone last week. It´s was in good running condition, I painted it and replaced steering bushings etc..

But the problem is that the Carburetor floods. Its seams it floods just as soon as you stream the gas down from the tank and I usually have to keep the throttle wide open for it to start.

I have taken the carb apart but I see nothing wrong... Could you guys give me a hint on what to look for and adjust?

      Hello everyone !
      I'm currently rebuilding my carburetor on my Yamaha moto 4 350 1987, first time I rebuild a carb 😅 ! It was leaking fuel from the overflow and inside the intake ....
      When I took off needle (the platic top part was stuck like crazy) I had a spring and inside the kit there is a spring, an O-Ring and a washer. 
      Left is the needle that was in the carburetor and right is the new set (I already tried to mount it but it didn't felt right and I accidentally broke the o-ring)
      Anyway, I saw in some videos and diagram that there is no spring in here. So should I put the spring back ? And where ? On top of the needle or bottom ?

       
      This is an original Mikuni carb :

       
      Thank you ! Also if you have any additionnal tips please feel free to share I want to learn the proper way !

      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?

      EDIT: Never mind, found that our local Suzuki dealer lists them for under $4 each. I did not realize they would carry parts for ATVs that old. I cant figure out how to delete the thread, so I apologize!
      Hello everyone,
      This is my first time posting - hopefully I am in the right place...but please be kind if not! I am not ashamed to admit that I am a crazy beginner when it comes to ATV repair (okay, auto repair in general), but I am trying to restore this ATV piece-by-piece. I ordered front and rear brake shoes yesterday, then realized the set I ordered does not come with those stupid little springs. I can only find used springs on Ebay and can not find anyone selling new ones anywhere except with the shoes (and were crazy expensive compared to what I paid...I guess for good reason).
      Anyone have any idea where I can get my hands on a new set of these springs?
      Thanks so much!!

      out of the blue my vinson wouldn't shift into park and when I am in H or L and go past a slow pace (maybe in 2nd gear) it grinds and Low grinds even louder. It sounds as though it may be in the rear diff. I have not tore into the rear end or anything yet. I was looking for advice before tearing it apart. Reverse has no grinding at all and H gear doesn't grind until you get moving past a walking pace. L grinds as soon as it moves. It shifts into gear smoothly and 4wd works just fine. There was no issues leading up to this. Any advice is appreciated thanks.

      Hello,
      I have read many forum topics on this matter but have never found a similar problem. So i bought a cheap ass quad thats got all sorts of parts on it. It's a 1997(if you look the date on frame) Kawasaki KLF(Bayou) 300 EUROPEAN Model (atleast I think, since I'm from Europe), the engine is 1988 if I'm not mistaken and the CDI is 1995.-2006. ( 21119-1447, 6pin ). My problem is that I don't have spark. I would diagnose the issue but connectors from CDI to wiring harness have almost all different colors and I'm not sure if they are connected correctly (pictures below). Pickup coil is putting out around 400 ohms and is pulsing. CDI is being fed 12v by one y/r wire that is coming to connector and with 12v to one gray wire which is coming from ignition switch ( quad actually doesn't have ignition switch so I'm not sure if gray should be supplying power or not). Stator looks good cause when crancking all three yellow wires put out around 5v AC. Neutral light is also on which means the switch should be ok, if it even matters. I know it's not the ignition coil since I get no power nor any kind of pulsing to G/W wire that is coming to it ( and I even put another one on there just to check an it ended with the same result). I'm nowhere near proffesional around this type of stuff so any help would be amazing.

      Hi, i have a polaris 4x6 -89 and im not sure if there might be something wrong with the engine.
      It makes a kind of scrabling sound like when a rod bearing is bad, but i can only hear it when revving quite high, usually bearing fault is heard mostly on low revs.
      Could it be bearings? piston? Or just something loose that is vibrating?

      Having recently bought a well used sportsman 450 with 20000 miles in northern Peru i found out ,among many other things that the swaybar is stuck solid,hence the harsh ride,so I removed the links and finally am enjoying a much smoother ride.
      My thoughts are to find a 1/2 " round steel rod with grooved ends instead of the awkward square tube which polaris fits and make a proper rotation bearings linkage.  By the way ,turning has improoved but I think a more flexible bar would
      bring back stability for a safe ride. The intake manifold adapter was cracked in two pieces and glued together with 2 component epoxy glue but didnt last long. This glue stuff (soldimix Peru) really sticks to this rubbish puttylike polaris rubber but the trick
      is to wrap a silk tape while the glue is still fresh overlapping both broken ends. Garanteed it will never come off again. Problem is the intake boot vibrates a lot and being more plastified than rubber for rigiditty´s sake it will end cracking by also bearing the weight
      of the carb body and airbox.
