Stop eating so much chillie!!! and stay away from Little Ceasar's pizza. Haha. You don't have to do all that man. Just drain the tank and pull the drain for the float bowl on your carb. Pour in a gallon of de-natured alcohol, let it sit for an hour(it'll absorb any water in the sys). Drain that out and fill it up with fresh gas. Problem solved.

Having bad gas does not necessarily mean everything has to come apart!  If it’s bad as a fluid having water in it or just old gas and no sort or debris in that gas then it’s simply just draining all of that fluid and adding fresh high octane fuel back in the system. 

Take the fuel out of the tank by removing the fuel line from the bottom of the tank and draining and re install. 

You can drain the carb by loosening the screw on the bottom of the bowl and let the carb drain. 

Put gas back in the bike, open the gas valve and wait until you have fresh fuel coming from that screw hole at the bottom of the carb bowl. 

Put the screw back in and you should fire up after a few cranks. 

I would put a fresh spark plug in also. Just for shits and giggles.

I just drained my tank at the petcoc, dumped in fresh gas and turned it over till it started- ran like a champ and no major fix

      I have a 1999 Sportsman  500, it was running fine, than started to lose power in the winter, I adjusted the idle screw and away I went, than a few weeks ago it died, I have found that i am flooding the engine, compression was at 70PSI and due to the compression release mech. i assume i am good as it compared to the same PSI on a 2000 sportsman 500 i have. i cannot start the atv unless i go full throttle and it starts an runs for about 30 sec than dies, again it is flooded. i ordered a new carb off ebay as i could get one for around $40. put that in same issue, i have checked the timing, (good), valves out of adjustment i adjusted to .006 still same issue, i have found the exhaust lobe and rocker arm to have some wear, i have ordered new ones, but am looking for any other input in this area as well. would the exhaust cam and rocker arm cause the engine to flood? i have used a bore scope and the piston liner has good cross hatching still? any input would be great.

      Smells like gas in the oil ... Also, recently replaced belt, new BT does not have grooves on both sides, does that pose a problem?  Also just bought and replaced new carburetor, never has it idled better, but give it gas and it backfires very loudly!

      This past spring, Jonathan worked on a 1991 QuadRunner 250 that came with the fuel pump removed. We didn't find good information about connecting it online, so we made a video.
      Below is the link to watch Jonathan describe the connections on the Suzuki fuel pump. This applies to both the Quadrunner and King Quad ATV models.
       
      Hope you find it informative!

      Fuel line hose has a pinprick hole. And tips, suggestions or warnings about how to change it out would be appreciated.

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.
