My quad idles but dies when i put in gear

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I need some help please. My quad ( shineray 250 2007 model) idles great and reves up but when i put in in gear it dies. I checked on youtube and they said it might be sticky clutch so i took it out and cleaned and put it back together but it still does the same. Could it be my air/fuel ratio?? Please help

I had an Eton 150 - CVT drive. The variator weights let the clutch engage too quickly, before the engine could develop power. By changing the weights the clutch engages later and - no stall.  I can't give credit to the source of the information that I found 'case I didn't save it.

For me im unable to get the atv in gear without it stalling. As soon as I let go of the throttle it dies on me. I figured the carb must be bad, out of tune or needing to be cleaned..

@bdaigleyamaha open your clutch cover on the right hand side and take out the clutch and just wipe it off, when you put them back in dont mix them up. Put them back in the same order as the way you took it out. Then adjust your air screw on the bottom of your carb. I got my bike atleast to drive today but still not 100% when i want to give it gas so that i can go to 2nd gear it loses revs and want to die

      While cruising, my 2011 750 king quad suddenly shut down. As it happened, red lights on the display flashed. Any ideas? My head lights suddenly stopped working about a week ago, if that helps. I have no power at all. Thanks

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      Thru unfortunate circumstances I ended up with a Shineray 4 wheeler. I put a new battery in it and turned the key and nothing happens. No lights, nothing. I assume it's maybe a blown fuse, but other than the glass fuse by the battery I can't find any others. Does anyone have an owner's manual or service manual for one of these that I could buy or borrow?
