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)

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 sh**. 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.

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?

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...

      I just saw a video on TikTok where some guy took the rear end off an ATV and bolted on a roto tiller in place of rear wheels. I wish i saved that video to post here....good thing it was 4 wheel drive...lol but, it seemed to work.
      I'm not sure how he made it bolt on to the drive....

      From Arkansas. Just bought a 2012 Gator 850i RSX because I could not pass up the price. BUT it has an idle problem. So, to be honest, I joined just to get a service manual. I have a choice: 1)Buy a hard copy: ~$100; 2)Buy a CD ~$35.00; Get a direct download for free posting 10 times; or get a download for $29.00 (subscription). Haven't decided what to do yet.
