Carb Replacement (90cc Arctic Cat DVX/Kymco)

Recommended Posts

Morning All,  Wondering if anyone has had any success using aftermarket carburetors on the smaller ATVs?  Picked up a couple Arctic Cat DVX90s over the weekend (2006 & 2008), and one of them has an aftermarket carb that needs to be replaced (it's missing the brass barb for the fuel line ).  Both are the same Kymco power plant, but different frame/body.

I swapped carburetors between the machines to test opreation.  Both ran great, and seem to manage the electronic choke properly. 

Am I better off to buy the replacement carb from AC ($250), or try an aftermarket?  Part of me wants a manual choke.....

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Aftermarket carbs are a much repeated topic here at Quadcrazy and will be a talked about topic forever! Many times here we’ve spoke about them and the general census is that they are not very good.  One of our memebers @JacobSlabach has mentioned that they needed to be adjusted way out from the spec position and has gotten them to work.   But the way I see it, if the quad is worth it then put an oem carb on. I always check eBay for a used oem.

I would agree with @Frank Angerano, Aftermarket just dont give the full performance that oem carbs do- but they will work.  I put them on bikes I plan to flip and so far, have had success with them.  If you are looking for a cheap fix, go aftermarket, but its kinda hit-or-miss with china.......no offense..tired over it GIF by Desus & Mero

You can buy the carb from Kymco and it would be cheaper then Arctic Cat OEM price.

      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

      Hi All,
      Hoping someone will be able to help.
      I have a 2006 Kawasaki Prairie 700 with twin Keihin Carbs CKVR D32. The Rear Carb is leaking out the side during cranking. it is not the float bowl overflow. It is on the opposite side of the carb from the diaphragm. 
      I got this bike not running and someone had already messed with it. I took the carbs apart , cleaned and rebuilt. Everything went pretty easy.  It looks like it could be missing a small tube between the carbs but I have all of them listed in the service manual installed. See the pic for where it is leaking from...
      Any help would be much appreciated.. Thanks.
