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.

Check compression - white smoke - non burnt fuel

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?

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      i ordered a keihin carb for my 07 trx 90 and it fits nicely but the new cable they sent is way too long and i can't make it work.  the old honda cable cap [that fits on top of the carb] is too small to fit.  the keihin cap is approx 3/4 or 19mm.  honda cap is more like 1/2 in.  the keihin has a rubber boot on the cap where the throttle cable goes through . i don't know how to find the right length [most cites don't give the length].  i'm not sure how cables fit into that boot  and do i need to add the length of the boot to the cable?  the old honda cable is 28 inches total, but the cable movement is only approx 2'' which would not be enough to reach the actuator block on the keihin.  looking to find a throttle cable compatible with the keihin.  any help, please.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      So I bought a Bayou 220 as me 'Black Friday' score, and was informed it has carb issues.. 
      A little history from the previous owner: they suspected the carb was bad as it was 'running like crap' so they did a rebuid kit on it. Didn't fix issue so they took it to a shop where the tech installed an aftermarket(?) carb, but had to modify the throttle cable to get it to work. Quad ran great at 1/4 throttle, but anything above that and the throttle would stick and the machine would run like garbage again.
      What I know and think: I hear carb issues are common and fairly easy to fix. Also, I think they used the 'universal' rebuild kit that claims '88-'11, but the jets and such were different from '00-'03 (gaskets, etc. appear to be the same) so their original attempt was a good idea, just not good enough.
      They did give me the original carburetor with the 4-wheeler, but it has the wrong internals. I'm thinking if I can get the right jets, springs, etc for the rebuild, I should be able to get this thing running right. Of course, I still need to charge the battery back up, change all the fluids, replace fuel lines, plug and wire.. ya know, the basics for a machine that's been sitting for roughly 9 months. lol
