2005 Suzuki Vinson odd issue. *need help*

Recommended Posts

Ok have a very odd issue I can't seem to figure out. Been working on this quad for weeks now.
The issue is that when the quad sits fuel overflows into air box 
Will run fine from around 1/4 throttle up
0-1/4 throttle backfires and just doesn't want to run without putting hand over  
Air box tube as if it is starving for fuel 
When I have the tank and carb off I can hook the fuel line to the carb on Pri. 
and 0 fuel overflows out of the carb

I have the vacuum petcock bypassed, have thouroughly cleaned the carb entirely, all seems fine

I'm stumped on how fuel floods into the airbox when on the quad but off of the quad the float valve seals as it should and no fuel will flow over  

As mentioned runs fine from 1/4 throttle up. It will idle for a pretty decent while the eventually stumble and die then you have to hold the throttle open to get it to crank back as if flooded

Any help would be great. Thank you all

Something is opening the fuel flow and my first guess would be that the float is having issues and getting stuck. However you said you checked it. Have you taken the carb apart and rebuilt it? Is the petcock always bypassed or you just did it to test?

Yea I've checked the float in the carb several times was the only thing that made since to me also always shuts off as it should    

Mom thinking the gas tank has some debri in it occasionally getting in   So I have a fuel filter ordered and see if it catches much 


I found earlier that a vaccum hose was plugged off.  Cleaned it out 

seems to be running ok again for now

      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.

      Hello everyone, did a search and not successful. Purchased new 2017 Sportsman 570 sp and my power steering is not working. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Works then it doesn't. Dealer says there's not a fix. Thought it was just me and it being a brand new machine with 4 hours on it. Dealership said it's this model only ? Not sure what a person in this spot is suppose to do and wondering are your thoughts mite be. Thanks
