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.

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!
