2000 Suzuki 500 Quadmaster Fuel Issue

Fuel issue. Fuel runs through carb flooding  cylinder when sitting. Does the float suppose to shut the fuel off when sitting ?

The float is supposed to lift up when the bowl is full and stop fuel flow. If it keeps filling with fuel, you have a carb float issue I believe.

It's the needle and seat that are attached to the float actually that is the problem. Take the bowl off, pull the pin that holds the float on, carefully pull it down, check the needle tip for deformation and debris. Take a qtip and place one end in a drill and run the qtip in and out of the seat where the needle sits till its clean. Make sure when it's all reassembled that the float site level when in it's up position. Also with it fully assembled you should be able to blow into the fuel inlet port and air should pass. But if you flip it over and simulate the float being lifted then you should not be able to blow into it. GL

      Below is a quote from a response to similar question from yesterday: 
      "Easiest thing to check is trash in the main jet.  if it idles fine, then the idle circuit and low speed jet is clear.  if it bogs off idle that's when it's transitioning to the main jet." 
      I will go ahead and open up the carb and check the main jet, but please respond to this post as if the main jet is squeaky clean.
      Below is my post:
      Only starts and runs on Full chock. 
      Does not matter what position I have my "mixture" screw.   Tried it at zero, 1 turn, 2 turn, up to five turns.  Spent a few hours confirming that the position of the mixture screw does not resolve issue.
      Runs great at idle and if I slowly engage throttle, it will rev up as expected.  But, quick rev up or when I am trying to drive it, it spits and sputters and looses power.
      I also use a propane bottle and did not find any obvious leaks, and the vacuum port is hooked to fuel peacock and I also made sure to simply block the port with my finger to see if that would resolve the issue.
      New Carb (after market), New Coil, Fresh Gas.  No leaks at manifold boot, hot battery.  Good gas flow.    Runs too good to be a valve issue, or cylinder, great compression.
      I can move the choke out a tiny bit, and it will still run, but will still bog down when I try to power it up.
      I also have a 250 trail boss Polaris that I require to run at full choke, but it has power at all throttle potions.
      I suspect it is running rich as the choke is on, but will not run with it off.
      Any details would be appreciated.

      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,

      I have a 2001 suzuki quadmaster 500 4x4 that has a rev limiter when it is in any gear other than neutral, i have already fixed a bunch of stuff on it and would love to just bypass it if anyone knows how. Thanks for any help.

      Hello again guys ,. I have a Quadmaster that has a very bad lean to my passenger side wheel. I replaced the a arm bushings with no change in the lean,  I see no bent parts and no adjustments available. It's always been there since I got it but became really noticeable when I put the lift kit on it. I'm going to add a picture of the problem if allowed.

      Anyone know where to locate these, or generics? The generics I seem to find have the mount on the wrong side versus the hose outlet. PITA!
      Also, is the rear master cylinder rebuild kit any good?

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.

      I'm retired, live in north Peru and recently bought a 2 year old 450 sportsman HO 2017 with 20,000 miles on the clock. It has been part of a fleet for agricultural commuting and has had proper maintenance as it still looks
      and runs pretty good. Checking out for the efi parts i found the fuel injector was not stock and lifted with 2 bushings to make parts fit. Does anyone know if there is an automotive fuel injector that might fit,with the same flow rate and specs,as polaris parts
      are nearly impossible to get here. Nowhere on the internet  can i find cross reference parts from Bosch or Delphi as polaris part numbers appear to be a captive market.
      Would greatly appreciate some advice
      Regards,  Robbie

      I bought a new carb and it is leaking gas from the over flow tube. What causes it. It's a brand new carb.
