2017 Taotao 110 cc carb issues

Recommended Posts

picked up this pos bike for $80 not running.  took it home, cleaned the carb and bypassed the fuse-  ran great (other than the rev limiter- those things are so stupid)  Then one day out of the blue it starts flooding on cold startup and wont idle cold, but idles to fast warm.  (too fast being about half throttle speed heh).  I tried a new carb ($10) and new sp.  new carb wouldnt make it run except on choke and then it was gushing white smoke.  I had better things to do with my time so I parked it in a shed and used it for a work bench for a while...  this last weekend, I wanted to take it along with the sportman to a mens retreat to let the younger boys have some fun on it--  took about 30mins to pull all the crap I had accumulated on it and then rolled it down to my workshop, put the old carb back on after adjusting the needle clip up two notches (leaner) and threw it back on the bike.  Will turn over, but no fire.  I didnt have time to check sp that day but just wanted some incite on what could be wrong with this quad (if it even qualifies as being called that)

For $80, you can't go wrong. I think you can get the carbs for those on amazon cheap, not sure though. That's probably what I would do first.

I had a similar bIke I picked up a few years back.   Bike would not start.  Pulled the plug it looked ok. Threw a new one in and bang fired right up.  Smoked alot also but it’s what I expected from a bike like that.  I gave it away to a friend so his little guy could Learn how to ride.  Still runs and still does the same shit. Did the same thing from time to time.  Weird but true.

CDI's on these are really bad, I've gone through several over the years. The kids love the little turds or they just wouldn't be worth the hassle. Also, buy a GOOD fuel filter for a couple bucks from a real atv dealer, the ones out of china self destruct causing more problems than the solve.

yea, that wagon has been through hell and back.  used to do drifts with it on the driveway...  both me and my brother when he was small.  Its got a new back axle (we broke the old one) and I broke the steering out of it and had to fix that...  its a ton wagon too- rated up to 2000 pounds.

I could see that thing working as a good dolly to put a atv on while pulling wheels off  or working on the engine to get it up to a decent hight and moving it around.

oh thanks- was going to do this when I got around to working on it again...  It might very well be valves out of clearance or something...  another thing is the battery charges fine- but loses charge fast (like in a couple days if not charged)  I would probably just let that slide since it hold charge overnight but I will definitely tell whoever buys it once I get it running that the battery could use changed..

anyone know what the valves clearance are on this bike??  And since the head is positioned almost below the crank, wont all the oil drain as soon as I remove the valve caps?

changed the spark plug....again- and it fires up then dies with starter fluid.  gonna take the carb off and clean it again and see what that does.  Compression is 120 pounds.  I only have $100 in it so you all think if cleaning the carb doesnt work, then just sell it for like $200?

Agree. I have also purchased several CDI's for our kids quad and atleast 2 of those has been already DOA. But those are pretty cheap in China...

      Ran it out of gas last month... Works fine for 3 or so days then refuses to start.... Changed out the sparkplug and it will run for 15 or so seconds before shutting off.... Cleaned out the fuel system and injector and it misses when idling as well as shutting off at idle every so often... It is giving me no other issues and sounds and runs fine while riding... Only issue is cutting off at idle.....
      Ideas anyone??

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      So I’ve got a 2000 Honda 400ex absolutely love it!! I’ve had it for about a month, I ride with bruteforce 750’s, outlander 850’s and 1000 sxs’s and I was thinking of getting a trx450r carb and a full hmf exhaust. And probably doing the air box mod too, how much power would this give my 400? Just a little different or a big difference? Cuz if it’s not much of a different I’ll just stick with my dg slip on..... thanks!

      Good morning!
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4X4 and I need to rebuild the carb. I have the dual-cable throttle model and I'm having a terrible time finding the correct kit for it. I'm not opposed to replacing it, but the only ones I'm seeing do not have the dual cable throttle system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Jay in WI
       
      P.S. I can send pictures if necessary.
