Recommended Posts

I put new carb on a keihin got out in the woods thought we suck some dirt in it. Got it home still running but poor,quit running all together. Cleaned all out put back on. Float working right so is everything else seems to be anyhow not getting any fuel for it to fire you can choke do everything wont fire pull plug out its dry after you thought you flooded it.  You can pour a little gas down plug hole put plug back in and it fires. Any help or ideas would be great thanks.

So it sounds like if you give it fuel it fires, but its not getting fuel from the carb? Check the lines, is fuel getting into the carb? Something has to be up with the carb fuel delivery or you have some kind of choke issue.

Sottie, did you ever get this figured out?

Have you checked the fuel valve (petcock) ? 

Make sure fuel is flowing from the tank. 

If that does not work then I would think your fuel is not entering the the carb where the float needle is. I know it sound repetitive but you missed something. Go back blow everything out and double check.  Main and pilot jets all clear ?

    • 2001 Quadrunner 500 Running Problems

      Hi all, Picked this bike up about a month ago, and started doing some work on it. I ordered a carb kit from China, but got tired of waiting for it so I went to the bike shop today and picked up a Shindy rebuild kit. Took the carb out of soak, it has been in there for a month, blew all the ports out, cleaned what I could with a guitar string, used air as best I could to make sure everything was clear. After I was satisfied the body was clean I out the kit in it. Got the floats set to 13mm as per the manual (well 12.87 on one side and 12.92 on the other, so close), set the pilot to a little less than 2 1/2 turns out (manual says 2 3/8 turns). Put everything back together and tried to start it, it started and had a week idle. I tried adjusting the idle screw and as soon as I turned it the bike died. Backed it out and tried again, same result. Left it backed out, started it again and gave it some throttle. As soon as the throttle is touch the bike dies. Changed the spark plug for a new one and checked the spark, good and really strong. I am thinking that I have a bad petcock and am not getting enough fuel to the carburetor. So when I press the throttle I am increasing air but starving for fuel, bike can't run on air alone so it dies. Does this line of thinking make sense? I am gearing up a bottle with a fuel line in it, so I can try gravity feeding fuel to the carb, just have to wait for the silicone to dry so won't be able to test till tomorrow.  If it turns out to be a bad fuel valve, I will most likely just replace it with a universal one. If I go this route, what do I need to do with the breather line off the carburetor that used to go to the OEM petcock? Block it off or leave it open? Any help, answers or other ideas of things to check would be greatly appreciated. I have a fishing trip at the end of the month and would love to have my bike running by then.

    • Hi from Mid-Michigan - working on my first UTV

      Hi to everyone. I'm trying to help my son with a problem be bought. A 2014 Coleman Outfitters 400 4x4 UTV(Hisun 400). Suppose to have a Kodiak 400 motor and CDI box that was wired in and being used. Then there was a fire that messed up the wiring. They bought a new wiring harness and someone worked on it, long enough to strip all wiring and cut connectors ends. I've bought and rebuilt several ATV and ATCs so I'm going to try to help. I am searching around for wiring diagrams for both Kodiak, unknown year and the UTV side. Trying to be sure manuals I have to buy are worth the price, I've bought many in the past that were a waste of time and money. Anyway this is long winded enough. I'll continue my searching and hope to learn enough to help get it running and everything working. Once I figure anything out I will try to repost any information that might help others. Hope to be able to exchange info with many others members.
