05 Eiger runs poorly


Recommended Posts

Okay guys I have an 05 Eiger 400 auto 4x4 that runs bad and pops but if you rev it up it starts to clear up and run okay but runs horrible at idle. I have installed a brand new carb rebuild kit and it still runs bad. I have pulled the carb back apart and found no crud or sediment to be clogging it in any way I'm at a loss of why it's running bad any help is appreciated

Try  adjusting the idle  air  screw.  Also  may  be  valves  set  a  little too  tight or  if  the  timing  chain  is  loose it  may  have skipped  a  tooth.  I'd  try  the  idle  air adjustment first , then check  for  vacuum  leaks. If  that  doesn't  do  it, pull the  carb again  and  make sure  all  passages  are  clear  and  jets  checked  for  tiny  missed  holes .  Blow  the  passages  out  with  "Canned  air"  for  cleaning  computers  and electronics  if  you  don't  have  access  to  a compressor.    If the problem  remains  then   you'll  have  to  dig  deeper and  check  valves and  timing.  Usually  running  fine  at  idle  and crap revved up  or  the  reverse  indicates  a fuel   rich or  lean burn problem.
