2003 YAMAHA RAPTOR 660R Carburetor problem

Recommended Posts



It may be getting too  much air,  running too  lean to  start  .. Try  replacing the air filter  and other stock inlet air components and see it if starts and runs much better. Some quads  need the  air filter installed to  run  properly. Several  members have run into that  problem  before.

As a general rule, spraying carb cleaner through the carb into the engine does no good. The carb cleaner goes directly into the engine without cleaning the passages in the carburator. If you suspect the carb is dirty, you can either remove it and clean or try a gas treatment such as Seafoam or Mechanic in a Bottle.

Thanks I'll try that.

you definitely need the filter and inlet tubes connected, the carburetor needs the vacuum created by the restriction of air from air filter to work properly.

      Looking for advice on what to try next I bought this quad and it’s has spark and fuel but won’t stay running only fires when I hold the starter button in even when spraying gas into the carb it still dies right away oil was milky white so I was thinking it maybe went under water 150 psi compression so I might be wrong but not a head gasket I am stuck Cause it should stay running with the straight gas through the carb so what should I try

      I just bought these in the fall as a pair and of course they were running awesome with no problems at that time.
      One of them now will only start with starting fluid. It runs great once it's started, but absolutely refuses to start without a squirt of the good stuff.  The other one starts just fine, but dies after it gets warm. The only way to keep it running is to keep the throttle up. It won't run at an idle, and keeping it running has the throttle too high to shift.  Any ideas or suggestions are very much appreciated!!!
      Thank you,
