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

      First of all sorry I have been MIA here for a while, been busy with school and work.  I'll try and reply on some other threads asap, but posting this one because I just picked up a 2017 sportsman 570 before the new year and popped a boot on it going through a mud hole.  The former owner had aftermarket axles on it to accommodate the 4in lift and idk what brand they are but they're skinny as heck and idk what boot to buy to rebuild with?  It's the rear right lower boot (under the brake calp.).  I'll post some pics when I can and sorry again I've missed yall on the forum!
