I would try turning out the pilot screw out until it clears up a bit....up to 3 turns out from a fully seated position. If you need more than that, then I would get the next bigger jet and start again from 1/2 turn out and until you get 'er dialed in. Only turn it about 1/8 turn at a time...a little at a time will do a lot

The problem  could be a failing spark  plug.  Fires ok  under idle but fails as soon  as a load is put on it.   If it  is in the  carb,  you could try turning  in the pilot screw to  closed , then  back it off 1 1/2  turns  ad try it .. Try  screwing the  screw in  and out  from  there as  fartknocker  suggests.

Here  is  a link to  a  service manual that will also  apply to your  quad.

Should I remove and clean the carb. Had one since 95 but never had to clean the carb on one. Got this one from my father in law she only got 900 miles , and that was just for farm use. Org tires and all. Want to make her my little ride.

If it starts and revs fine  for a second and then  sputters ,  it  is starving for  fuel. You  need to  service the  carb. There  is a vacuum  piston/ diaphragm   on it that  may  be  damaged or leaking. The  high  speed  jet  could be  plugged or  one of the passages . If it  sat  for  a  long time with  old fuel  in the  carb,  it  is  most likely  badly  gunked up.

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      the king quad had sit for about 1 1/2 years. So I rebuilt the carb and now it will not start. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

      Yes I just got a 1998 polaris xplorer 400 4x4. Ran fine after hauling then died. Cleaned carb and put new fuel filter, hose, and new battery in. Starts 3 out of 10 times but will only run for a short time. Any suggestions?

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      OK, so I'm a boxing fan...anyone watch last night's fight between Manny Pacquiao & Ricky Hatton?

      The PacMan is just too fast and too accurate. Floyd Mayweather just announced yesterday that he's coming out of retirement to fight Marquez in July. Maybe we'll get a December fight between Pretty Boy and the PacMan?
      So, Manny has convincingly beaten up DeLaHoya (just announced his retirement from boxing) and now Hatton...
